"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
At All Things New we know that health is more than just a healthy body. The Bible defines true health as wholeness in spirit, soul (mind) and body.
Romans 12:2 gives us the key to transforming any problem in our lives, including health problems:
"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."
If we want to heal our broken hearts and get healthy the world tells us we should focus just on our bodies but God says we need to start with our minds.
His way is from the inside-out, and so is ours.
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 soul and body and life.
Spiritual healing comes through discipleship and spiritual formation. It's the process where we gradually line up our beliefs, thoughts and actions with the God's formational work in us.
The key to it all is deepened intimacy with God through prayer and study of his Word. As we grow to know him for who he really is, we come to know who we really are and how to live healthily and abundantly as the godly children of God.
At ATN we understand that all three parts of a person must be healed in order for them to get well and experience abundant life. We use Christ-centered and biblically-based pastoral counseling to heal your soul (mind and emotions).
Our thoughts, emotions and behaviors flow out of our beliefs. In order to change our behaviors, we must first change our beliefs. This is why Romans 12:2 tells us to renew our minds in order to transform our lives.
In counseling we explore how you developed your current beliefs, how they may be sabotaging your health (and life!), and how you can change them to line up with God's truth and experience victory over the behaviors destroying your 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 root-cause medicine to heal your broken heart 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 testing reveal the physical, biochemical, nutritional and toxin-based "cracks" in your temple foundations. In addition, they provide the basis for your personalized heart healing program which includes nutritional therapy, botanical medicines, detoxification and lifestyle shaping.

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 she practices holistic medicine that addresses the physical, soulical and spiritual root causes of disease. Her method brings healing to the whole person through Christian spiritual formation and discipleship, Christ-centered pastoral counseling and renewing of the mind, and root-cause medicine.
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. Oh, and a killer Manhattan now and again!
"The time I spent with Leslie was revolutionary and I emerged from our time together as a new creation."
