Dr. Kelley began working in the healing arts in 1991 as a mental health therapist. It was while working in Arizona at an in-patient facility for the seriously mentally ill that he understood the need for natural alternatives in medicine. A middle aged patient was taking 25 medications and yet not getting better. Dr. Kelley tried to coordinate a meeting with her prescribing physicians to reevaluate the medications, yet none of them returned his phone calls. Shortly thereafter, the patient fell in her apartment from being overmedicated and was hospitalized for head injuries. During her stay at the hospital all of her medications were stopped as she was unconscious. When she recovered from the head injury, she also regained her mental and physical functioning and continued to be healthy without the need of medication. This is one of many examples that started Dr. Kelley in the search of a better health care model.
Dr. Kelley began training at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (SCNM) in Tempe, AZ. in 1996. This 4500 hour doctorate program leads the nation in offering traditional naturopathic training while allowing the student to understand and integrate western health care standards of treatment.
While at SCNM, Dr. Kelley began additional training in Chinese Medicine and earned a Masters in Oriental Medicine from the Southwest College of Acupuncture in Boulder, CO. in 2001. Dr. Kelley has continued his professional development completing the American College of Advancement of Medicine’s chelation training, German biological medicine training, and spent three years working with Dr. Tim Binder ND, DC, LAc (considered a leader and innovator in natural medicine).
Dr. Kelley’s clinical interests include: chronic disease, pain, anti-aging medicine, nutritional detoxification, geriatrics, women’s health, pediatrics, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune disorders.
