Dr. Laurie Dady is the founder of the Center for Health and Healing. With passion and a gift for getting to the cause of an illness or condition, she works closely with patients to promote wellness, create hope, and improve health and healing. Her favorite part of her job is “watching my patients transform their lives from feelings of hopelessness to feelings of joy, wholeness, and wellness.”

Here is just one example:

“A young mother brought her 11-month-old daughter in with foot and mouth disease. The pediatrician had nothing that would help…she felt hopeless. I used three oils on her daughter, and within 15 minutes, she was running around the office like nothing was wrong. It was a sight to see!”


Dr. Dady graduated from Auburn University in 1989 and Life University in 1994.

She has been practicing chiropractic for 20 years, opening her office in Marietta, Georgia, in 2000. In her career, Dr. Dady has had 5,100 hours of chiropractic training and 4,500 hours of instruction in functional medicine.

In 2009, Dr. Dady became certified in Nutritional Response Testing. She also had the opportunity to study countless hours in restorative endocrinology under the direction of Dr. Janet Lang, a true pioneer in this ever-expanding field.



Dr. Laurie Dady lives in Marietta, Georgia, with her spouse and their two dogs, Augie (Catahoula/Blue Heeler that would be a fantastic outfielder for the Atlanta Braves) and Izzy, a Pomeranian that is arguably the ONLY Pomeranian that can retrieve a Frisbee (learned from Augie, of course). She enjoys weightlifting, yoga, woodwork, and spending time with her family at Christmas.

An accomplished athlete, Dr. Dady received the title of ‘All American’ in Track and Field. She competed in the 1984 Olympic Trials as a heptathlete.

In addition to other athletic accomplishments, Dr. Dady has won countless titles as a professional, all-natural bodybuilder, including WNBF, Ms. World, Ms. International, and Ms. Universe. She promoted and ran her own bodybuilding show, the Southern National Bodybuilding Championship, for six years.

“I walk the walk and talk the talk. I would not expect patients to do anything I would not ask of myself. Overall, it’s about balancing nutrition, exercise, and meditation. When you know better, you do better. I will teach you how to move better, eat better, and live a healthy life.” – Dr. Dady.
