3 Leaf Health and Wellness’s vision is that everyone experience life at their optimal health potential. Living with passion, vibrancy, and vitality is the future we hope to see for ALL people. For us, health has 3 leaves - the body, the mind, and the soul, which all stem from a connection. These leaves all need fuel and nourishment in order to achieve true health and happiness. In addition to focusing on food as medicine and emphasizing whole, organic, and sustainable foods; 3 Leaf Health and Wellness partners with our clients in developing autonomy, competency, and confidence through the use of health coaching and motivation. Our goal is to support clients in reclaiming the health of their whole body by realizing their own internal wisdom and coming to understand the interconnection between themselves, others, and the world around them.
WHO WE SERVE
Our clients are those that value a holistic, natural, and integrative approach to health and wellbeing. Often they come to us frustrated and lost, having searched for answers and solutions but finding none. They are looking for someone to truly listen to them, to have compassion and empathy for their pain. 3 Leaf Health and Wellness is concerned with discovering the root causes of pain, disease, and inflammation. By tackling the underlying causes we can more effectively treat the symptoms. Inflammation, gut + digestive issues, autoimmune diseases, fertility.
My relationship with health and nutrition steams from years of extreme struggle with food, body image, and ultimately an autoimmune disease. From a young age, food was a comfort and a source of escape. However, in my adolescent years, that relationship changed and I embarked on a 15 year battle with an eating disorder. That disease took me to some of the darkest places of my life but also taught me resiliency and determination to find a new way of living and relating to food and myself.
One of the biggest blessings of my life was disguised as one of the most frustrating and trying times of my life. For 3 years I struggled to find answers to the pain, inflammation, and discomfort I was feeling on a daily basis. There was a daily struggle to get out of bed because the pain was so excruciating. After 3 years, countless blood panels, and 7 specialists, I was fed up with not having answers. Luckily, I stumbled upon a seminar about inflammation, and within a week of meeting with a functional medicine doctor, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. The plan of action from there – NUTRITION! Healing my body through the use of food and holistic supplementation.
Thus began my new journey and a new relationship with food. One of mutual love and respect. Realizing the powerful role that food plays in my health - body, mind, and soul - completely changed the trajectory of my life forever.
Building trust and rapport are paramount to working with my clients because the connection is one of the pillars of health; without connection, nothing else can be accomplished.
I wish to help those that feel like I felt – lost, frustrated, and knowing that there is a better way. Knowing that they are more than just a collection of symptoms. What they want is a lasting relief, not just a temporary fix. My goal is to walk through this journey with my clients, side by side, and discover the key to unlocking their optimal health potential. Nutrition plays a huge role in accomplishing this but it is only one aspect of the bigger picture. Building trust and rapport are paramount to working with my clients because the connection is one of the pillars of health; without connection, nothing else can be accomplished.
We will focus on the connection that each client has with themselves, the most important relationship they have. Through the health coaching model, clients will learn to gain competency and confidence in themselves and reclaim autonomy over their life. They are the ones in the driver seat of their life, my role as a coach is to help guide and support them on this journey.
In addition to the intrapersonal relationship, clients will also reflect on the connections they have to other people, to the world around them, as well as the connection they have on a spiritual basis. A connection has been shown to boost health, protect and even prevent disease and illness.
