I came to see Dr. Caroline to determine if there was a way to help my 26 year-old dependent daughter, Sierra, who was born with cerebral palsy, maximize any potential she has both mentally and physically. Sierra was diagnosed with cerebral palsy (micro-encepathaly) at 12 months old. I was told this was as a result me being in labor for 17 hours and her not getting enough oxygen during my regular delivery.
Since coming to Balance Atlanta over the past two years, not only has there been a marked difference and improvement in Sierra’s alertness, vitality, mobility, cognitive skills and digestive functions, but I too have seen a marked difference in my own reduction of stress levels, increased vitality and overall improved health! As a multi-tasking mother of a child with special needs, as well as an author, disability community advocate, singer/songwriter, speaker and business owner, I wear many hats and always feel better after my adjustments!
Because I wear so many hats, keeping the stress level down is key to being effective. Even more so because 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with adult onset epilepsy, which was brought on by stress I didn’t realize I was holding on to! I now try to keep that at a minimum through proper planning, exercise, eating healthier and seeing Dr. Caroline regularly!
I didn’t know much about what chiropractic services offered in terms of furthering a person’s overall health and wellness, until I met Dr. Caroline von Fluegge-Chen and became part of the Balance Atlanta family, along with my daughter, Sierra. I am now a true believer in her unique approach to balancing the mind, body and spirit and how that helps people lead healthier, happier lives!
Dr. Caroline’s expertise combined with her genuine committed, compassionate and caring attention to not only what’s going on with each of her patients physically, but mentally, emotionally and even spiritually, is something that helps her stand head and shoulders above other practitioners, in my humble opinion. She helped to not only turn on my daughter’s inner power and potential, but mine too and our lives are the better for it! – Norma S/
