Ian’s focus today with clients at True Wellness is vibrational rebalancing, nutrition, homeopathy and the emotional connection to health and wellness. Ian particularly enjoys working with children who are dealing with “learning disabilities” since he was plagued with some of the same issues throughout his schooling. He likes to help children discover their learning abilities while addressing any underlying issues that are present.
Ian is responsible for writing our monthly newsletter article and teaching seminars and monthly workshops on Biological Medicine at True Wellness.
Ian continues to study and consult with prominent practitioners both here in the United States and in Europe. His multi-disciplined approach and unique way of expanding the client’s understanding of the “how” and “why” of illness sets him apart from other practitioners. Ian is the founder of BiologicalHealth.com and True Wellness of PA.

Kelly Kennedy is a biological holistic nutritionist whose studies began more traditionally as a pre-med student at Cornell University, receiving a degree in Biology. Her father had Hodgkin’s disease and passed away when she was just 20 years old. That same year she was in a bad car accident that left her in chronic pain, emotionally drained and her life in a state of upheaval.
After 3 years of succumbing to the contemporary allopathic approach without results, Kelly finally sought out a different approach and got relief from her pain permanently. Kelly did not understand precisely how she had healed, but knew she had found the answers she was seeking. Kelly began studying and working with Ian Kennedy and a skilled, passionate practitioner was born.
Kelly continues to study with many pioneers in biological medicine allowing her to accentuate her already vast experience in biological medicine, while giving her the ability to reach even more clients with a wellness approach that is truly “Bio-logical.”
Kelly specializes in Computerized Regulation Thermography and pleomorphism, spending the time needed with each client to be sure they have an understanding of what the test is indicating, what therapies may be suggested and why. She also offers nutritional guidance and performs therapies to improve the client’s regulation. To say Kelly is busy is an understatement; her guidance and enthusiasm are vital to the function of True Wellness and to the success of each client.
Kelly is on the Board of Advisors for BRMI.online.

This prompted a major life change resulting in certifications in health and life coaching from Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Koelle Institute and Equine Experiential Education. Leaving the corporate world behind she is now loving life as a coach to clients both in the office and in the arena where client and coach both receive valuable biofeedback from the horses.

Her goal is to help connect you with your own inner guidance, so that you are supported in forging a path to your personal health and harmony.

Sarah first found True Wellness as a client in 2017 while she was in search of answers for her chronic skin problems, not yet aware that she was really searching for answers to heal her broken heart. It was a long journey to health and Sarah absorbed as much as True Wellness would teach her about her own healing process and the way our emotions connect with our physical sensations; this piece of the philosophy of Biological Medicine was what she had always believed to be true about health but had never experienced as a patient of typical western medicine her whole life.
Since 2016, Sarah has been passionately teaching yoga, continuing to delve deeper and expand her knowledge of the practice wherever and whenever she can. Within her first three years as a teacher, she had taught over 1000 hours of classes and had been certified as a prenatal/postnatal yoga teacher under Sue Elkind at Dig Yoga in Lambertville, NJ. During those first years of her career, she also began exploring energy healing and became a Reiki Master as well as a level two Healing Touch practitioner. 2019 was an expansive year for Sarah as she travelled the world, going as far as Indonesia and Argentina, to train in teaching partner yoga. The partner practice of Acro Yoga opened Sarah up in ways she never could have expected, completely changing the way she related to humanity and the people around her. It was amidst the push to study partner practices that Sarah found Thai Yoga Massage, a form of partner therapeutics that immediately spoke to her heart.
Joining the True Wellness team has given Sarah an outlet to bring together four years of gathered knowledge into one space, caring for clients through sessions that focus on breath work, yoga, and Thai Yoga Massage. The unique perspective of being a client for so many years paired with her intuitive empathy allows Sarah to hold safe and sacred space for clients to let the healing process unfold and is excited to see where this journey upward leads her!
