"NOW, MAY THE GOD OF PEACE HIMSELF SANCTIFY YOU ENTIRELY; AND MAY YOUR SPIRIT, AND SOUL AND BODY BE PRESERVED COMPLETE, WITHOUT BLAME AT THE COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST."
1 THESSALONIANS 5:23
The world wants you to believe that losing weight and getting healthy is all about diet and exercise. Those are very important but the Bible defines true health as wholeness in spirit, soul (mind) and body. That's why at All Things New we focus on weight loss and health from the inside-out.
"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." - Romans 12:2
The majority of weight loss and health programs out there mostly all focus on changing just your body through restrictive dieting, medications, magic pills and powders, and unrealistic exercise programs.
They never give a thought to the fundamental way your beliefs, thoughts and emotions shape and drive your choices and behaviors around how you eat, move your body and take care of yourself.
This is why everything you've already tried to lose weight has failed.
The simple truth is:
To change your weight, you have to first change your mind.
This is Weight Loss from the Inside-Out.
And it's what we specialize in at All Things New Health & Wellness.
"THE THIEF COMES ONLY TO STEAL AND KILL AND DESTROY; I CAME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE, AND HAVE IT ABUNDANTLY." John 10:10
Is about weight loss.
But it's about so much more....
It's about.... WEIGHT LOSS & BETTER HEALTH
"Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.'" 1 Corinthians 6: 19-20
Weighting on G.R.A.C.E. uses functional medicine to find the root causes of the metabolic dysfunction preventing you from losing weight.
We design a personalized, customized healing protocol consisting of nutritional therapy, botanical medicines, lifestyle shaping and coaching that corrects and rebuilds your temple, enables you to lose weight, and teaches you how to keep your temple gloriously strong and healthy.
It's about.... HEALING for SPIRIT, SOUL & BODY
"And He said, 'If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the Lord, am your healer.'" Exodus 15:26
Weighting on G.R.A.C.E. teaches you how to enter into obedience to God's ways so you can learn how to live every day in trusting dependence on God, and receive his blessing of healing in every part of your being.
It's about... FREEDOM & POWER
"So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed." John 8:36
Weighting on G.R.A.C.E. teaches you how to abide in Christ and to live from His power in you so you can walk in the freedom from overweight and poor health that is already yours.
It's about... GREATER INTIMACY WITH GOD
"How precious are your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand." Psalms 139: 17-18
Weighting on G.R.A.C.E. will help you uncover and understand the distorted perceptions you may have of God based on your relationship with your earthly father. You will come to know God as he really is and draw closer to him so you can mentally and emotionally experience the depths of his personal healing love for you as well as the peace and joy that come from knowing your true identity and inheritance in Christ.
It's about... VICTORY & HOPE
"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but desire fulfilled is a tree of life." Proverbs 13:12
Weighting on G.R.A.C.E. will help you be victorious in your battle with overweight and poor health and give you a battle plan and hope for victory in every other battle you may face in life.
It's about... FELLOWSHIP
"Therefore, encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing." 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Weighting on G.R.A.C.E. is you + the Holy Spirit + us (who are part of the Body). You're never alone in your journey and can count on us to lovingly encourage you and build you up as you learn how to live in God's love and grace and experience abundant life.
WEIGHTING ON G.R.A.C.E. is about ABUNDANT LIFE
The most fundamentally true thing about you as a Christian is that your spirit is now one with the Spirit of Christ. His holy, righteous life is now your life (Gal. 2:20). Now, God is forming you into the fullness of who you already are in Christ by working that spiritual perfection out into your mind, emotions, body and life.
Spiritual healing comes through spiritual discipleship. It's the process where you gradually line up your beliefs, thoughts and actions with God's formational work in you so you bear fruit of the Spirit and live in God's kingdom.
We engage with you in prayer and study of God's Word. As you grow to know him for who he really is, you come to know who you really are and how to live healthily and abundantly as the godly child of God you already are.
At All Things New we understand that all three parts of a person must be healed in order for them to get well and experience the abundant life that is theirs in Christ. We use Christ-centered, biblically-based pastoral counseling to heal your soul (mind and emotions).
Your thoughts, emotions and behaviors flow out of your beliefs. Thus, in order to change your behaviors, you must first change your beliefs. This is why Romans 12:2 tells us to renew our minds in order to transform our lives.
In pastoral counseling we explore how you developed your current beliefs early in life, how they may be sabotaging your health (and life!), and how you can intentionally change them to line up with God's truth so you can experience resounding victory over the attitudes and behaviors destroying your physical and soulical health.
Your body is fearfully and wonderfully made by God and is now his temple, so it's important to rebuild and keep your temple strong and healthy.
At ATN we use holistic functional medicine to help you lose weight and renovate your temple from the ground up to make it strong and healthy. And we teach you how to keep it that way.
A comprehensive health history interview and functional lab tests reveal the physical, biochemical, nutritional and toxin-based "cracks" in your temple foundations. In addition, they provide the basis for your personalized weight loss program which includes nutritional therapy, botanical medicines, detoxification and lifestyle shaping. We teach you the healthy habits and Holy Spirit-focused mindset that will keep your temple healthy and whole for the rest of your life.
A PASSION FOR HER SISTERS IN CHRIST
Leslie Strovas, DNM(c), FN, PC
About two weeks into root-cause medicine practice back in 2011, upon hearing a tragic story involving murder, grief, loss, transiency and abuse from a very young age, Leslie recognized that this dear patient's life experiences were manifesting in very clear destructive ways in her body. She realized that there was much, much more to health than just a correctly functioning body. She could balance hormones, fix cells, douse inflammation, detox and change lifestyle habits for her patients, but until she addressed the soulical (mind, emotions, behaviors) and spiritual aspects of disease, her patients would not fully heal and get their health back.
Today her healing practice is holistic and addresses the physical, soulical and spiritual root causes of disease. Her method brings healing to the whole person through Christian spiritual discipleship to heal the spirit, Christ-centered pastoral counseling to renew the mind and heal the soul, and root-cause medicine to heal the body.
All Things New Health & Wellness is the call of God upon her life and she can't imagine any greater honor or joy than serving her sisters in Christ in this healing, life-giving ministry.
She is also wife to Joseph, mom to three amazing grown and flown kids, and "mémé" to five beloved and cossetted grandkids. She loves being outside in nature, travel, ballet, singing, gardening, cooking and knitting.
"The time I spent with Leslie was revolutionary and I emerged from our time together as a new creation."
