Medical Supervision

From Sunday afternoon when you step on campus until you leave, doctors and nurses are monitoring your health and are always available in case of Emergency. Even after you leave, our team is only one phone call away. Our doctors are working on restoring complete physical, mental, and spiritual health to our patients.

You will see your assigned doctor two times a week (6 sessions total), or more as needed. You will have lab work and a treadmill test done when you arrive, and your doctor will explain the results. The doctors are Board Certified, and have had years of experience working with and teaching Lifestyle Medicine.


– 1 treadmill test
– 2 blood tests
– 6 physician’s appointments


Adjusted for diabetics and people with lifestyle diseases the menu provides healthy nutrition. To provide a balanced and healthy schedule, two meals are served per day.

Cooking Instruction

Learning to cook for health is an enjoyable experience. You will have eleven instructional classes. Your cooking instructor has been teaching NEWSTART guests how to cook food that is healthy and tasty for over 20 years. You will watch her demonstrate how to cook some things, and you will make some of the recipes yourself, and of course sample them all. You will end up with lots of delicious recipes that you feel confident to make because you have seen them made and/or made them. Learning the principles of healthy cooking is a vital part of changing your life and health.

Hydro Therapy

The many healing treatment methods of using hot and cold water plus massage, soon become a favorite part of your stay here at the NEWSTART Lifestyle Center. Whirlpool baths, 16 head showers, relaxing hot packs (fomentations), sauna baths and wonderful massages, are all designed for your personal healing needs and relaxation. We have separate male and female treatment departments, and therapists who are well trained and experienced.


Because of the many benefits of both the water treatments and the massages, each guest has several scheduled treatments each week during their stay.

A good share of the guests who come to the NEWSTART Lifestyle program are not only suffering from a physical problem, but also have other issues in their lives that they need to resolve to have complete healing. Whether it’s family problems, addictions or other personal issues, our Chaplain is ready to help you work through them as you are ready. Because of this, all of the guests are given opportunity to have an appointment with our Chaplain. This is not required, but most of the guests are happy for the opportunity to talk with someone who can counsel them regarding questions and issues that have been bothering them. For many, this is the first time that they have felt free to discuss problems or worries with a knowledgeable, caring Christian counselor and they are very appreciative for the help. If you are problem and worry free‚ you will still enjoy the visit.

Exercise and Fitness

Exercise is built-in here at NEWSTART Lifestyle Center. There are over 15 miles of beautiful, well marked, wooded trails which start just outside the Lifestyle Center, and can lead you on a short easy half mile walk, or on a gradually longer and more challenging walk through the 400 + scenic wooded acres. Of course, our Fitness Center is always available with exercise machines that assist with special exercise needs or indoor walking on a treadmill. Each guest has appointments with the Exercise Counselor who helps you progress with your individual needs and goals

“It’s never too early or too late to work towards becoming the healthiest you.”
