Amity Lifestyle Health Event
AMITY, ARK. – John Kelly, M.D., M.P.H, L.M. specialist, founding president of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, and his wife, Sally, have a very special ministry. They travel the globe, presenting instructional lifestyle health programs tailored to the particular site. They recently provided 12 hours of helpful instruction spread over five days at the Amity Seventh-day Adventist Church. Area churches, as well as the community, were invited, resulting in a delightful social mix. Every session began with tasty, healthy food samples prepared by Sally, who provided and talked about the recipes. The content of Dr. Kelly’s talks included up-to-date data on how lifestyle factors affect specific conditions: diabetes, now known to be reversible; heart disease; high blood pressure and more. The participants learned some simple but very effective hydrotherapies as well as ways to use charcoal effectively. Many took advantage of a very low-cost blood panel drawn before the beginning of the program, which correlated with a filled-out health appraisal, and were provided helpful counsel going forward. As time permits, the Kellys make themselves available to any church or other entity.
