Good quality sleep is the ideal defense to protect your brain from the effects of aging, to manage stress with ease, to maintain proper organ function, to boost the immune system, and to heal from wear and tear.

Yet chronic fatigue syndrome affects up to 2.5 million Americans and is recognized as a very debilitating illness.

Whether someone is continually tired due to a lack of sleep, or they experience insomnia because they cannot turn of their mind, billions of dollars are spent on drugs promising better sleep and more energy.

There is a documented research correlating sleep disorders with increased traffic accidents, a higher risk of future dementia, failed relationships, career dissatisfaction, a decreased financial status due to lost productivity, more sick days, chronic disease, and mood disorders.

The medical approach has little to contribute to this issue other than prescription drugs, antidepressants, and sleep aids. Perhaps a more enlightened doctor will suggest yoga or breathing exercises, but their knowledge in the practice of holistic mind-body health is nearly non-existent. Patients are left to suffer with symptoms including memory loss, brain fog, extreme exhaustion, muscle weakness, chronic pain, and anxiety.

At Balance Atlanta, Dr. Caroline’s approach to sleep disorders is different. Using BrainCore technology, she assesses brain function to determine neurological dysregulation. The BrainCore protocol, brain map report, and neurofeedback training sessions enable clients to establish normal, healthy brain wave patterns essential for restorative sleep.

With lab testing, we are able to assess whether or not inflammation due to a leaky gut may be irritating the brain; if food allergies and sensitivities play a role; if the nervous system is fighting damage from chemical or heavy metal toxins; or if chronic infections and stress may contribute to sleep issues.

A whole body analysis and appropriate plan of action that includes nutrition and lifestyle modification, BrainCore Therapy, and chiropractic is more honoring to patients than masking symptoms of distress with drugs over the long run.

Six potential causes of sleep disorders:
  • Diet (food sensitivities, caffeine, sugar, histamine)
  • Deficiencies (iron, B12)
  • Infections (candida, reactivated Epstein-Barr, Lyme disease)


  • Hormonal imbalances (adrenal, thyroid)
  • Environmental (stress, sleep)
  • Toxins (mycotoxins, heavy metals)
