Miracle Worker For the

Miracle Worker For the five weeks of her life, baby Finley couldn’t eat more than an ounce of formula at a time without screaming and spitting most of it up. Her mother, Jennifer, was at her wits end with worry until she saw her own long-time chiropractor and kinesiologist, Buckhead-based Dr. Tim Kelly. Kelly spent about 15 minutes adjusting the tiny girl, who was writhing in discomfort due to gas and indigestion, with a red, puffy face. As he worked his gentle adjustments, Finley relaxed and became less rigid and uncomfortable. Jennifer, armed with a few formula options given by Dr. Kelly, she took her into a quiet room and fed her now-calm baby, Finley’s first full-sized meal of her life. “Now, she’s able to sleep for hours at a time and eat five ounces without crying. All of the puffiness in her face was gone after that first visit,” Jennifer said a week later. “She’s a totally different baby.” These kinds of results may sound too good to be true, but clicking through Dr. Kelly’s Buckhead Wellness Center YouTube channel makes it apparent that seemingly miraculous results are common for the doc, who has been honing his skills for the better part of 32 years. Because he takes a multifaceted approach, leveraging things like nutrition, brain chemistry and much more, tailored to each patient, he’s had astounding success treating conditions not typically associated with chiropractic. He’s treated patients with autism, cancer, depression, arthritis and much more, in concert with the patient’s effort, their medical communities and their holistic team. A PASSION FOR HEALTH When clients begin work with Dr. Kelly, they can expect to open with the full story—their health history, what brought them in and what they hope to accomplish through treatment. As a chiropractor, the nervous system is a primary focus, no matter the type of treatment and therapy. The healing comes from within the patient, and Dr. Kelly serves as the health coach to educate on how best to achieve optimal health, wellness and vitality. One of the biggest differences in Dr. Kelly’s work as a chiropractor as opposed to that of a medical doctor is that, rather than seeking a symptom that matches a diagnosis and a corresponding drug, he seeks the root of the imbalance or disease causing symptoms and pursues the best course of treatment to alleviate the cause itself. When he was a child, Dr. Kelly’s family doctor had a very naturalistic approach, so he was inspired to be involved in health and wellness. Yet, he didn’t feel drawn to traditional medicine. Rather, he was interested in preventive health. His calling found him at age 24, after he injured his back carrying building supplies. “[My brother] took me to a chiropractor and he saw me one time—I went in crooked and came out straight,” Dr. Kelly recalls. “That trained me to have a ‘see your patients once’ mentality. My philosophy is to help people figure out the important things to fix so they can stay healthy.” Dr Kelly’s practice is based entirely on referrals, some patients coming from as far away as Saudi Arabia and New Zealand. Ultimately, he sees himself as an educator, helping give his patients the resources for them to stay in balance and therefore healthy. “I’ve had patients who have been to medical doctors and can’t find answers, so they come to me,” Kelly says. “I’m a primary health care provider that is a drugless physician, I help people to understand what they can do, to regain, and maintain good health.” Because of his comprehensive approach to health, patients might be surprised to have Dr. Kelly give them advice on everything from vitamin supplements to nutrition to orthotics to help balance the spine from the ground up. He spends concerted time with each of his patients and constructs a plan to uniquely address their needs and concerns. Just like for baby Finley, the results of such an approach can feel astounding and lifechanging, and ultimately, they can be just a visit away. Graduating from Life Chiropractic College in 1985, Dr. Tim Kelly has since spread his message and restored the health of individuals from New Zealand to New York. Dedicated to promoting community awareness of the power of individuals to heal themselves through understanding self help, he helps you find your solution to a long and health life.

WELCOME HOME! At more than 534 square miles, Fulton County is one of the largest counties in Georgia; it is more than 70 miles from end to end. As the home of Atlanta and many other municipalities, Fulton is also the most populous county in the state, with close to one million residents. Because the county is so large, it has evolved into three distinct areas and identities: South Fulton, the City of Atlanta, and the communities of North Fulton. It is a place rich in history, culture and entertainment, a leader in business and education and a great place for people of all ages to call home. The history of Fulton County spans more than 160 years. North Fulton was inhabited primarily by Cherokee and Creek Indians, who referred to the area as the “enchanted lands” before the land was ceded to the state in the early 1820s. The population soon began to grow, as people from the nearby states began to settle in the area. Many were of English, Scottish and Irish heritage. In 1853, the western half of DeKalb County was renamed Fulton County. Debate continues over whether the county was named after Robert Fulton, the inventor of the steamboat, or Hamilton Fulton, a surveyor for the local Western and Atlantic Railroad. The county grew even more in 1932 when it absorbed neighboring Campbell and Milton counties as a way to save those counties from bankruptcy during the Great Depression. Like many parts of Georgia, Fulton County played an important role in the Civil War, as part of Gen. Sherman’s route from Chattanooga to Atlanta. The North Fulton city of Roswell had a cotton mill—the hub of the area’s antebellum economy—that was burned by Union troops in 1864. Despite the ravages of war, Roswell still boasts more historical pre-Civil War buildings than anywhere else in north Georgia. Barrington Hall and Bulloch Hall have both been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since the early 1970s. After the war ended, the entire area began to rebuild, and industry replaced farming as the primary economic engine. The City of Atlanta is now home to many Fortune 500 companies, including Coca- Cola, Delta Air Lines and Turner Broadcasting System. In North Fulton, the recent incorporations of Johns Creek and Sandy Springs have helped forge a new identity for that part of the county. Since the middle of the 20th century, North Fulton has been building a reputation for being a business-friendly and tech-savvy community. Sandy Springs has been the headquarters for UPS since the early 1990s and the office parks of Alpharetta and Johns Creek house many up-and-coming technology firms. CommunityProfiles >> 2017 3
