Born in Florence, Alabama, Dr. Cordie Williams grew up in Seattle, Washington. Following his high school graduation, he served in the United States Marine Corps, earning two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals during his four years there. Upon his honorable discharge, Dr. Williams completed a bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of North Alabama.
As a young child, Dr. Williams watched his grandfather Cordie Lee Mays pass away on machines as he fed him his last meal. In fact, he watched three of his four grandparents lose their battles with cancer under the medical paradigm – and then almost losing his mother in 2011. This ignited a lifelong passion in him to help people holistically. The trials and tribulations of sickness and loss, much like Dr. Tania Williams’s, only strengthened Dr. Williams his inner desire to help heal and educate society about the body’s innate and internal ability to heal itself.
Dr. Williams started his clinical pathway towards becoming a holistic doctor by doing bodywork at Synergy Release Sports for a sports chiropractor, Dr. Michael Hatrak in Alpharetta, Georgia, where he came in contact with several world-renowned athletes in professional sports. As a result, Dr. Williams was fortunate to work with the likes of Brian Westbrook, Hines Ward, Jay Ratliff, Heather Mitts, Charlie Whitehurst, and many others. Soon after, Dr. Williams decided to further his passion for health and wellness by attending Life University in Marietta, Georgia.
It was there that Cordie met his future wife, and after four years of dating, along with three holistic wellness-based mission trips together, Drs. Cordie and Tania Williams not only decided to join hands in business but also in marriage.
They both strongly believe that families can help heal their bodies from anything – if the barriers preventing optimum health are removed. Health From Within Family Wellness is based on that philosophy – on the power that makes the body heals the body.
