Atlanta - Georgia - US


ATLANTA - Jan. 14, 2020 - PRLog -- Having grown up in Georgia and graduated from Georgia State University, Dr. Janelle Louis, ND, a naturopathic doctor previously licensed and practicing in Overland Park, Kansas, has returned to the state. She has opened a new office in Norcross, where she helps survivors of childhood adversity overcome the chronic conditions they are at increased risk for as a result of their difficult pasts.

Adverse childhood experiences or ACEs can include parental divorce or separation; violence between caregivers; substance abuse within the home; incarceration of a household member; parental mental illness; physical, sexual, or emotional abuse; physical or emotional neglect; the death of parent(s) or sibling(s); growing up in foster care; and any other experience that causes undue stress during childhood.

Research demonstrates that survivors of adverse childhood experiences or ACEs are 76% more likely to be diagnosed with chronic disease as adults.1 They are at increased risk for mental health concerns like anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia; autoimmune conditions like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Hashimoto's thyroiditis; reproductive problems like infertility, endometriosis, PMS, and PCOS; and metabolic concerns like insulin resistance, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.

Dr. Louis shares her own experience overcoming ACEs in her new book, Set On Edge. She also describes exactly how childhood trauma increases our risk for these health concerns in adulthood. Set On Edge is currently available for pre-order and will be released on March 1, 2020.

Dr. Louis' new office, Focus Integrative Healthcare (, is located at 3081 Holcomb Bridge Rd, Suite E-1, Norcross, GA 30071. Dr. Louis works with ACE survivors and collaborates with their primary care physicians, when needed, to help them overcome the effects of ACEs and optimize their health.
