While Allison’s health struggles are deeply rooted, they forged a God-paved path that led the three owners together.
During her sophomore year at The University of Texas, Allison’s body began to break down as she was riddled with mysterious back and neck pain, numbness in her arms and legs, and loss of motor skills. She spent over a year searching for answers, but traditional doctors were dumbfounded, finding no consistent solution or agreed-upon source.
Though she had reservations, Allison began to pursue natural medicine and her aunt Marilee’s guidance. Marilee opened her niece’s eyes to the effects of everyday chemicals found in our food and environment, helping Allison understand that it was her brand-new apartment complex sophomore year that had incited her pain. Full of new – and highly toxic – carpet, paint, glues, grout and finishes, the chemical load was more than her body could bear. After moving to a cleaner environment, adopting a pure diet and using non-toxic body care products, Allison found tremendous relief. She now strives for a diet free of preservatives, processed foods and refined sugar and prudently avoids chemicals, toxins, pesticides and electromagnetic radiation exposure. This has proved to be the answer to her inexplicable symptoms as Allison’s daily routine of muscle relaxers, painkillers, and anti-depressants is now a thing of the past.
Astounded by her body’s natural ability to heal, Allison developed a passion for gaining knowledge that she believes can lead people to a fuller, more vibrant life. She created Three Branches to provide the information that brought her out of a season of pain and to prevent others from settling with the lower quality of life that many believe is their only option. She is whole-heartedly devoted to this company, knowing that Three Branches is more than a place to find products, but instead an easy access to Marilee’s wisdom that stems from years of helping people find renewed health through natural means.
Allison uses her trials as inspiration that anyone can heal themselves if given the right information, enough persistence and, most of all, faith that even small changes can produce big results!
Allison graduated from the University of Texas in 2008 with a major in Public Relations and a minor in business. She is a recent newlywed who now lives with her husband in their hometown, Houston, TX.
