Our Story

We started ACE Defyers to uncover and address a hidden epidemic of chronic disease caused by unaddressed childhood adversity. This epidemic affects major segments of communities, cities, states, and the world. We want to help people to no longer be victims of their pasts, but to build paths into the future where they can see their hopes and dreams coming to fruition. We do this by bringing awareness to the problem of ACEs and by providing resources to help ACE survivors defy their predispositions. We hope to make a difference that will change the course of the lives of those who are affected by this hidden epidemic forever.

What Are People Saying?

"[Dr. Janelle Louis] is providing compassionate care that gets to the source of my illnesses and diseases. For the first time in my life I feel equipped to change the medical history of every generation after me."
Kershana H.
"...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.
"...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.
"...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. ."
