We had the good fortune of connecting with Debbie Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Debbie, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
As a Hair Loss Practitioner and Nutritionist, I help people with hair and scalp problems find solutions by searching for the problem’s root cause. However, many people do not understand that their hair, scalp, and skin conditions may be due to nutritional imbalances. Your body needs minerals and vitamins every day to help every organ and gland function properly. Calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, iron, copper, zinc, selenium, chromium, boron, sulfur, and manganese all play a very important role in your daily life. Let’s call these minerals the “fuel” that ignites your body’s engine. Without the correct amount of fuel, your body will signal you that there is a problem. That signal is pain or some form of discomfort. A headache, backache, joint pain, fatigue, digestive issues, insomnia, acne, and even hair loss are some of those signals or signs. Studies show that ninety percent of the population is nutritionally deficient, and many people are unaware of this fact. Your nutritional health also determines the health of your hair and scalp. As a nutritionist, I want to continue to help as many people as I can learn how to eat to live and live to eat. I especially help those with diabetes, high blood pressure, and thyroid disease. It’s very important for me to bring awareness that what you eat and how you eat will determine how healthy you are today and will be tomorrow.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am very proud of my business model because it sets me apart from other businesses. How many hair loss specialists do you know that are also a nutritionist? There is a definite connection between hair loss and nutrition. Most dermatologists or hair & scalp specialists address hair loss and scalp issues only, and they only treat symptoms with a topical solution. Unfortunately, many of the problems are internal and are related to hormonal imbalances and deficiencies that are not being addressed. In my practice, nutritional deficiencies are one of the first issues I address.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
When my friends come to visit, we generally hit a happy hour somewhere in Midtown or Buckhead. I like to try new places all the time so the exact restaurant or happy hour spot varies. If we’re feeling fancy, I like to go to Capers in Kennesaw for a nice upscale dining experience. On weekends, I love to brunch so I’d take my guest(s) to Another Broken Egg, Copeland’s or First Watch. I also enjoy going to Atlantic Station to shop at Dillards and grab a bite to eat from Yardhouse or Marietta Square to visit the boutiques and eat at Taqueria Tsunami.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My parents are one of my biggest inspirations. They both came from nothing and made something of themselves. They gave me and my sisters a great life. One that we are so proud to be a part of. My baby sister is also my biggest supporter. We both have a love for mankind and want to expose the world to the truth and a better way to live.
