I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Janelle Louis, her expertise, and her practice. She has helped me immensely after only a couple of visits. I was seeking a more natural approach to some of my medical concerns, and after just a short time, with some dietary changes, reduction of my blood pressure medication, and some education about supplements, I have seen vast improvements in my lab results in areas that has previously baffled doctors! I always knew natural was best, and getting to the ROOT of any problem is always the best solution. That is exactly what Dr. Louis does. I am so glad I took that first step and visited with Dr. Louis, and I look forward to continuing my journey with her as I seek optimum health, naturally! I wish I had found her sooner. Dr. Louis will put you at ease, answer all your questions, and provide recommendations specifically tailored for you and your needs and concerns. I whole-heartedly recommend Dr. Louis for anyone who wants to seek better health, naturally! Thank you, Dr. Janelle Louis! Keep up the great work you are doing!!
Dr. Louis has been so helpful to me in preparation for my surgery. Perhaps the most impressive point of my working with her is her balance of knowledge on both traditional medicine and its effects along with natural remedies. Her understanding of disease, its causes, methods of prevention and cure, are exceptional. I highly recommend Dr. Louis as she has been equipped to help the “whole person” mental, physical, and spiritual. You will not be disappointed.
