About 3 In 1 Nutrition:

Believe it or not, opening 3 In 1 Nutrition was not my idea. I thought I would continue as a clinical dietitian at the VA for quite sometime. But one day God told me to quit my secure job as a clinical dietitian and open a faith-centered practice in the middle of a pandemic.

I didn’t know initially that God would have me focus solely on fertility, but I found myself working with  women seeking care for concerns such as pcos, infertility, prental care and excrutiatiang periods. The irony is that all my life I have suffered with excrutiating menstrual pain and when seeking God for healing, He guided me to become a dietitian, where I was able to apply my knowlege of nutrition and physiology to help me find relief.

Now I know that my pain and education was a stepping stone to help several other men and women with their own reproductive concerns. I am honored to serve as both a practitioner and a sister in Christ that seeks to empower you on your journey to improving your reproductive health.

Our Philosophy to Nutrition

At 3 In 1 Nutrition, we never forget the role God intended for food to play in our lives. He clearly intended for us to have an intimate connection with food since he created Adam and Eve in a garden of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices. Making it clear that he wanted us to enjoy the fruits of His labor. But the Bible also shows us examples of how what we eat can have long-lasting consequences both physically and mentally. And scripture continuously highlights the fact that our spiritual state is what determines our relationship with food and guides our food choices.

That is why In addition to nutrition counseling, I pray with and for my clients and discuss key Biblial tennats needed to cultivate the spiritual fortitude required to sustian a healthy lifestyle. After all we are a three-part person, body, mind, and spirit.

Ciara's Personal Journey with
Reproductive Health

Hey there! Im Ciara, founder of 3 In 1 Nutrition and I am no stranger to fertility related concerns. As a teen and into my early 20s, I suffered from debilitating menstrual cramps that kept me in bed for several days while I was on my period. My symptoms weren’t just a case of severe cramps—they were so bad that I would regularly vomit, have episodes of diarrhea, and was unable to keep down any medicine that might help. 

Unfortunately, my doctor never did anything for me except eventually put me on birth control pills and prescribed extra-strength pain medication. And while this provided some relief, the side effects (including severe depression) didn’t seem worth it. 

It wasn’t until I randomly took an introductory college nutrition science course that I began to find what the primary issue was.  I began to see how every process in the human body, from nerve conduction to digestion, to hormone metabolism was entirely fueled by food.
I began changing my diet to support my body on a biochemical level, and my period improved tremendously in the process.

Who knew that beyond supplements, exercise, and medicine, it was the food I used to fuel my hormones that played the biggest role in bringing me relief. And while my husband and I haven’t started our family yet, I’m thankful to know I’m doing everything I can to prepare my body for the miracle journey of motherhood, and am here to help you do the same! 

If you’re curious to learn more about my “then” diet and why it was so detrimental to my body, you can read more about my experience in a past blog post.

What is a Registered Dietitian?

A registered dietitian is a nutritionist with advanced training in nutrition counseling, and medical nutrition therapy. We assess, diagnose, and treat nutrition related problems, and suggest nutrition recommendations in line with your medical needs as well as your overall goals.

It is important to note that not all nutrition providers are the same! People can refer to themselves as a nutritionist in several states without having clinical or formal training. However, to hold the designation “Registered Dietitian”, one must complete specific pathways to be credentialed such as the one I followed below:

Bachelor’s degree provided by a regionally accredited college or university

Completion of a didactic program accredited by the counsel for education in nutrition

1000 or more supervised practice hours

Passing of a board certification exam

Continuing education to uphold certificate and states licensors
