Would you like to find out WHY your body is not getting well?
Would you like to have a doctor who really LISTENS to you?
Instead of treating symptoms, would you rather find the CAUSE of your health problems?
We are a results-driven practice, using only non-invasive techniques. Instead of treating disease or medical conditions, we provide natural ways of finding out why the body is functioning incorrectly. Once this is found, the correct function can be restored using natural techniques.
We are Defined By:
- Knowledge, techniques and dedication to get the best possible results; Results are always our primary focus.
- Education, consulting and guidance for patients to improve their recovery and create stability of health.
- Genuine, sincere caring for patients by the doctor and every staff member.
- Leadership: Recovering health requires doing difficult things. We help our patients to be successful with this by being caring and empathetic, but results-oriented. We will help you succeed despite the difficulty of the process.
Caring and Health Care
Have you ever suffered from a lack of caring in the health care system? This could be obvious: a doctor or nurse that treated you impersonally or failed to answer your questions. Or it could be indirect: a failure to diagnose or treat your problem correctly because no one cared enough to make sure it was done right.
It’s interesting that caring is critical to successful health care and to the improvement of physical and mental illness and disability.

About the Practitioners
Alternative Health Atlanta is owned by Dr. Melodie M. Billiot, who is 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 six months of full time post-graduate work by the practitioners.
