Our Three-Fold Mission

At ACE Defyers, we're passionate about three things—educating, empowering, and enlightening women so that they can overcome their predispositions and live their healthiest and best lives now, in spite of their difficult pasts.

Dr. Janelle Louis, ND — Founder

We are passionate about educating women about the effects of ACEs so that they can break the cycles in their own lives and make better choices for themselves and for their children. 

We’re passionate about empowering women with the tools and skills they need to overcome their increased risk and to address the health concerns that they are at increased for as a result of having experienced ACEs, such as mental health concerns, reproductive concerns,  autoimmune disorders, and metabolic syndrome. 

We’re also passionate about enlightening women so that they realize that they can live life on their own terms, in spite of their difficult pasts. They can raise physically healthy and emotionally resilient children. They can rise above their past and present circumstances. And they can live their healthiest and best lives now.

"...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."
Debbie S.
"...My sister-in-law suggested a more holistic view of what was happening, and she helped me find Dr. Louis. ... [M]y TSH was in normal range for the first time in 3 years, and I’ve maintained it for several months. It’s amazing how much of life one can accomplish when awake and feeling good! Thank you Dr. Louis!"
Julie C.
"...Personally, I have struggled with anxiety and sleep related problems most of my adult life and while I have been on pharmaceutical drugs for those issues, they were still not fully controlled. What I came to realize was missing, was the link between traditional medicine and integrative medicine and I found that with Dr. Louis. By integrating her holistic approach into my care, I am now essentially free from daily anxiety and my sleep has improved dramatically. ."
