Policy regarding the use of 4Leaf Intellectual Property

April 2019. The 4Leaf registered trademark, the 4Leaf Survey, ARCH by 4Leaf and all other 4Leaf materials are intellectual property of 4Leaf Global, LLC.

Commercial Use. For individual practitioners and other revenue-generating organizations who wish to use 4Leaf intellectual property in the course of their business, a formal licensing agreement is required.

We are now offering modestly-priced annual licensing agreements primarily to physicians, health coaches, dietitians and others who are in the business of promoting health. Pricing depends on the size and scope of the organization.

How 4Leaf is used.  Many established medical practices have found our materials to be particularly helpful in efficiently helping their patients learn how to leverage the power of food to reverse disease and promote health. In short, 4Leaf saves the physician time and increases the likelihood that the patient will make whole, plant-based eating a permanent part of their lifestyle.

In the future, other businesses and individuals who might benefit from the use of our 4Leaf materials include wellness consultants, health risk assessment (HRA) firms, corporate wellness professionals, cardiologists, family physicians, naturopaths, lifestyle medicine physicians, dietitians, nutritionists, food producers, grocery retailers and maybe someday–a trendy restaurant chain known as the “4Leaf Cafe.”

In 2018, we partnered with Switch Healthcare to launch a 4Leaf tool called ARCH that can be used by corporations, as the acronym implies, to “automatically reduce the cost of healthcare.” The key to all of the above is maintaining the integrity of the brand for all concerned–and that’s why licensing agreements are required.

Public use of 4Leaf is free. As of 2019, the 4Leaf Survey and all related tools, materials, recipes and forms on our website are offered free of charge to the international public, in an effort to help people everywhere take charge of their own health and to help promote the best health for our ecosystem that sustains us.

We offer the online 4Leaf Survey for free to the international public for two specific reasons:

  1. To promote human and planetary health by influencing the shift away from animal-based and highly processed food toward planet-healthy, disease reversing, whole plant-based foods.
  2. To promote the 4Leaf brand so that it can grow, become more recognizable and perhaps play a role in helping to revolutionize the way medicine is practiced around. the world.
