AUGUST 2022 – changes

The ANHC story continues:

  • For over a year, Lisa has been working very hard to find the doctor who would step into a full time position with aspirations to plant their flag and make the Atlanta Natural Health Clinic their own.
  • With the responsibility to ensure stable and long term care for our patients, the team (including Dr. Hurd), her family, and with no new doctor, Lisa has connected our practice to two VERY nearby offices for future stability. (Atlanta Restoration Chiropractic with Dr. Rachel and Hands On Wellness with Dr. Miriam who also offers NRT). Both doctors that Lisa has known for years, trusts implicitly and who are extremely talented practitioners.
  • Beginning August 1, 2022, Dr. Carmi and Chrissie relocated to serve patients at Atlanta Restoration Chiropractic, Dr. Rachel Stockwell’s office, and welcome any of you that desire to continue a relationship with them there. You can expect a smooth transition if you decide to relocate too.
  • Dr. Carmi will retain her schedule of being available mornings on Tuesday, Thursday and 2 Saturdays a month. You can see Dr. Rachel’s hours on her websiteFor appointments, please call 770-871-1500. 
  • Our PCD rates and pre-pay plans will be honored at their new location.
  • Dr. Hurd has decided to remain at the Atlanta Natural Health Clinic, maintaining his office hours of Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

  • He resumed being the sole owner of the Atlanta Natural Health Clinic when the partnership with Lisa ended.

  • Chrissie does plans to support Dr. Hurd in the office on Fridays only.
  • Thank you to all of you that came to send the team off with well wishes and cards!

This chapter of the clinic story is definitely still unfolding and it feels important to bring you up to date as our story wouldn’t exist without YOU.

Lisa will still be around to support transitions and available for questions, feedback, concerns, etc.

Feel welcome to reach out to her at or call 404-319-9032.

With gratitude TO and FOR you,
All of us at ANHC

For context to the above, please read our Atlanta Natural Health Clinic story:

  • August, 1983, Dr. Hurd was a massage therapist and opened the clinic as a partner with chiropractor, Dr. Dill.
  • Dr. Dill sold his part to Dr. Weatherly who then sold his part to Dr. Dean.
  • July, 1989, Lisa began working in the clinic with Dr. Dean. Dr. Hurd was in chiropractic school at Life University while still providing massage therapy at ANHC.
  • Dr. Hurd graduated from Life College as a Doctor of Chiropractic in December, 1991; also becoming the sole owner of the clinic.
  • With a shared passion to improve the lives of MANY, Lisa and Dr. Hurd worked together to build a thriving practice and integrated into the community.
  • June, 2000, Lisa stepped back from the full time Chiropractic Assistant position to support behind the scenes (filing insurance, taxes, staff training / coverage, etc.) and focused on her growing family. This began a beautiful list of other CA’s that have come to serve alongside Dr. Hurd over the years.
  • 2001, Dr. Hurd began integrating nutrition into the practice and started carrying supplements to address deficiency and toxicity for improved patient outcomes.
  • March, 2013 Lisa started her Health Coaching business, but continued to support the practice because she loves Dr. Hurd, the ANHC family, and most importantly, it’s success was her mom’s financial provision.
  • Late in 2016, Dr. Hurd began to negotiate the sale of the chiropractic portion of the clinic to transition responsibility of owning the practice, but planned to continue to offer nutrition.
  • Lisa, helping to care for her mom, kids, and coaching clients had decided that after the new owner took the helm, she would be stepping away from ANHC to grow her own business.
  • March 8, 2017, Jenny (Dr. Hurd’s wife, Lisa’s Mom) passed away from metastatic breast cancer.
  • With hope of retaining his opportunity to serve in the chiropractic practice, he offered Lisa equity in the business she had served for 27 years.
  • The Atlanta Natural Health Clinic, LLC business partnership was formed May 1, 2017 with an agreement that a new doctor would join the team to carry the legacy into the future. Dr. Hurd the clinical partner, Lisa the managing partner. The previously pending sale never took place.
  • September, 2017, enter Dr. Chelsea Drda.
  • March, 2019, enter Chrissie Forlie, our current rock star CA who helped us navigate COVID and keeps all the plates spinning to ensure your amazing experience at ANHC.
  • We shared a great few years with Dr. Chelsea. She had planned on eventually buying the practice, but after some personal challenges and changes, she needed to move closer to family in Florida in April, 2021.
  • June, 2021, enter Dr. Carmi Verano. Dr. Carmi joined us to help expand our hours, serve our patients with her amazing skills, but not to eventually own the clinic. She is an asset that any practice would be fortunate to have and we’re lucky to have found her.
  • For over a year, Lisa has been working very hard to find the “next Dr. Chelsea”, the doctor who would step into a full time position with aspirations to plant their flag and make it their own one day.

It has been so fun to help folks become more informed about their state of health and function with our re-scans! The Thermography can give us indicators of compromised function long before symptoms show up and the Surface (no needles!) EMG gives us a window into how the muscles are responding to our posture and musculoskeletal well-being. (text-neck, home office/school ergonomics, postural changes, etc all add to this kind of spinal stress)

Heart Rate Variability will evaluate the relationship between our “Fight, Flight, Freeze” Sympathetic Nervous System function (thank you for helping us run from perceived danger!) and the Rest, Restore, Renew, Recover Para-sympathetic Nervous System function (thank you for helping us to heal and renew our cells).

Free scans are only available to our existing patients. We’re planning September for Patient Appreciation Month and you can share no charge scanning process with others then. (more to come on that in a few weeks) This is an IDEAL time to get kids checked before school starts back. 

It’s been decades since we have held Saturday hours, but Dr. Carmi is resurrecting that chance for a weekend adjustment! For now, we are adding appointment times on the 1st Sat. of each month with the strong potential to expand that. Would you like to be on the schedule for Saturday, August 7th? Call or email Chrissie today. (770-455-6767 or 


For the month of July AND August, Dr. Carmi will be offering all our existing patients a FREE rescan with our Insight Technology. The scan consists of three major components: Heart Rate VariabilityThermography and Surface EMG. When patients start care and move through their initial phase of care, scans are a regular part of assessing change, but after the relationship has been established and care choices move to lifestyle support or acute care, many of our patients aren’t scanned as frequently. We encourage you to take advantage of Dr. Carmi’s generous offer to gain insight to your health and function so that you’re making the most informed choices regarding your well-being.

Crystal singing bowls along with flutes are the only two instruments capable of producing a perfect sine wave, also known as pure tone. These waves do not erode over time and continue in their perfect form much like sending a beam of laser light off into the night skies. The pure tone of this perfect wave is capable of correcting imbalances in the human body through the law of resonance. This law states that when two similar energetic systems encounter each other, their vibrations will come into a state of harmonic vibration. Our brain wave patterns in alpha state have the same energetic patterns as sine waves.” The Mind Orchestra

Some of the many benefits of Sound Therapy:

  • facilitate deep relaxation and release in the the body
  • quiet the mind
  • deepen an inner experience of Peace
  • broaden Self awareness and consciousness

Check-Ups for Kids!

Whether your child is at school in-person or staying home for a virtual semester, it’s important to get their nerve system checked! We have seen SUBSTANTIAL spinal and nerve system changes (in negative ways) to our children and teens in 2020. Physical patterns we were formerly seeing only in adults or children/teens who had been through significant traumas are now common in almost all of our patients (yes, even weight-bearing infants and toddlers). In addition, the effects of increased screen time on your child’s development and behavior may not be obvious yet, but they may present down the road.

Here’s the great news: WE CAN HELP!! Sign your child up for a complimentary health consultation to decide if chiropractic care is right for your younger family members. Please act now and make sure your child has a healthy nervous system!
