How Parsley Health Solves Digestion Problems

November 15, 2016

Once a week we’ll hear from real Parsley Health  members, in their own words, about how working with Parsley Health  has changed their lives. This week we’re talking to Catherine, a 25-year-old medical student at Mt. Sinai in New York.

I’m 25, and a first year medical student at Mount Sinai. I’ve had severe digestive issues for over a decade, and have tried a couple of times to solve them on my own, but without success. I was finally at a point of wanting to prioritize my own health and feeling like I had time to do so, and a friend recommended Parsley as a resource she had used to solve her own gut problems. So, I decided to give it a shot!

For a long time now, I’ve experienced a host of digestive problems, from acid reflux to distention to severe abdominal pain. The list goes on.
I’m still working on figuring out everything that my body doesn’t react well to.

Parsley helped me identify and (much more importantly) ADMIT the main source of my problems—gluten . Since strictly removing gluten from my diet, I feel worlds better.

I’m fine-tuning my diet to one that works for my body every day. I am much more committed to prioritizing that process in my life than I was before.

Working with Parsley really energized me to figure out my digestive issues, as frustrating as they may be sometimes.

When when my symptoms began as a teenager, I saw a number of doctors who offered me pamphlets about diets for IBS. I was always so frustrated by that because I didn’t feel like it was reasonable or realistic to stop eating 50% of the food in the world for an unclear period of time. They offered no guidance, no follow-up.

I can accept a diagnosis that is difficult to treat as long as I have a health provider who wants to partner with me in navigating the process, which I didn’t find until I went to Parsley.
