Meet the Staff
Dr. Billiot is the founder and owner of Alternative Health Atlanta, Holistic Practice Solutions (a company that develops techniques and management systems for holistic practitioners) and is the developer of EvecticsSM health therapy systems.
She is known nationwide as an expert and sought-after teacher of nutritional and energetic techniques and as the developer of EvecticsSM.
Dr. Melodie Billiot graduated from Life University in 1993 summa cum laude as valedictorian of her class. She is certified in CRA and Nutrition Response Testing, System Desensitization Technique (SDT) and N.A.E.T. allergy elimination techniques, System Balancing Technique (SBT), JMT, several chiropractic adjusting techniques, and has studied extensively in homeopathy, herbology, Chinese medicine, clinical nutrition and pain control using nutrition.
In 1994, she became frustrated because of a lack of consistent results with chiropractic treatment in areas other than musculoskeletal. Motivated to find a solution for her patients other than drugs and surgery and fighting a serious health problem of her own, she started researching holistic and nutritional techniques in 1996.
As a result of this research, Dr. Billiot recovered her own health and made significant improvements in patient results. Now, a decade and one-half later, Dr. Billiot has one of the most successful holistic practices in the country and trains other practitioners in clinical nutrition and other holistic techniques.
Alternative Health Atlanta is owned and operated by Dr. Melodie M. Billiot, licensed as a Doctor of Chiropractic by the states of Georgia and Florida . The practitioners working at AHA have been hand-picked and trained personally by Dr. Billiot.
Because EvecticsSM techniques are not taught as part of any standard university curriculum, practitioners must be trained and interned here at the clinic, a process that takes almost six months of “very” full-time work by the practitioners.
Nelli Biddix, ND
Born in India, Nelli Biddix grew up in the mountains near the Himalayas. Spirituality and health have always been her keen focus, even as a child. Nelli was always looking for ways to help people with their health, take away their troubles and put a smile on their faces. Her parents decided she would be a doctor. While there she quickly realized that she was not suited for conventional medicine. Instead of masking symptoms with drugs and surgeries Nelli wanted to heal the body by understanding what was out of balance and working on the root cause so the body could heal. She left the university with a Bachelors of Arts and started working in a health food store. This life changing decision put her on the path of true healing. She went on to become a certified Doctor of Naturopathy, a nutritional consultant, master herbalist and a health specialist.
Eriece Harris, DC
At the age of 7, Dr. Harris announced to her mother that she was going to grow up to be a doctor. She attacked school with determination to get accepted into medical school. In college, she did a pre-med curriculum, majoring in biology and graduating with honors. But after graduation, instead of studying for med school entrance exams she found herself disillusioned with becoming a medical doctor, and teaching high school!
Her change of direction started when she developed back pain during college. Her mother told her to go to a chiropractor, who explained how the body can heal itself instead of relying on drugs and surgery. This made complete sense to Eriece, and she decided that putting patients on drugs instead of actually helping their health wasn’t anything she really wanted to do for the rest of her life, putting a stop to her medical doctor intentions.
One day during her teaching career, she was having a visit with her chiropractor. She told him about her frustration at wanting to be a doctor but not wanting to push drugs, and he made a very simple suggestion: “Why don’t you go to chiropractic school and become a chiropractor?” Excited, she wrapped up her teaching and arrived at Life University in Atlanta, eventually graduating with honors as a holistic doctor, trained to help patients improve their health instead of just giving them drugs.
After working several years as a traditional chiropractor, Dr. Harris decided to look for a different healing approach to address more types of health problems and more difficult cases. She was completely excited to find EvecticsSM and Dr. Billiot, as this was exactly the training and opportunity she was looking for.
Dr. Harris says she most enjoys “Changing lives. Helping people to realize they don’t have to be on drugs and slowly dying for 30 years.”
She takes great satisfaction in prevented health problems: the person that stayed well, the child that didn’t go on ADHD drugs, the surgery that was avoided and the prescription that never had to be filled.
At home, she has a dog (Soul), a cat (Shug), loves to cook and do “anything spa-related.”
