From near suicide to hope. At Balance Atlanta. A transformation in progress. With permission, I am sharing a piece of Marcelle’s story. As he said,...
At Balance Atlanta, Dr. Caroline does what no other practitioner does for kids in difficult situations: she addresses physical structure, neurological integrity, brain function, and body chemistry to restore optimal health.
Balance Atlanta is located in the heart of Buckhead, an area of Atlanta well-known for affluence – million dollar homes, elite private schools, gleaming high rises, serene country clubs, luxury retail stores, fitness studios on every street, organic food emporiums, medical facilities, and every type of alternative healing practitioner you can imagine.
There are two types of parents who bring their kids to Balance Atlanta.
The first type recognizes the importance of a wellness-based model of health care and they include chiropractic, nutrition, exercise and other avenues into their regimen. They understand our society does very little to prepare kids to handle stress effectively, therefore it is best to promote balance of mind and body from an early age. The services offered at Balance Atlanta are included in the family budget and weekly schedule.
On the flip side, the other category includes those parents whose kids are in the midst of the damaging effects of out of control stress:
Eating disorders, night terrors, cutting, drug and alcohol use, theft, violence, internet addiction, underperforming at school, mood swings, not getting along with peers, apathy, and isolation for example. These situations are kept hush hush as not to disrupt outwardly appearances, but the prescriptions and appointments with medical doctors, rehab centers, counselors, and school administrators tell another story. Quite often, the dynamics between parents, the child exhibiting worrisome behavior, and the other siblings are enough to tear the family apart.
