Once a week we hear from real Parsley Health members, in their own words, about how working with us has changed their lives. This week we’re talking to Jacob, a 37-year-old executive who lives in Manhattan, who came to Parsley Health looking to fix his heartburn and ended up with even better results.
I came to Parsley as a referral from my friend Jim. I hadn’t seen Jim in awhile and when I saw him, he looked great. I asked him what his secret was and he referred me to Parsley Health. He told about all the good things it did for him. He was so positive and adamant about the experience that I signed up immediately.
When I first came to Parsley I thought I was healthy; I tried to eat clean, including no carbs. I worked out 4-5 times a week. But I still had heart burn issues and a run of illnesses including mono and shingles. I assumed these were brought about by my lifestyle, constant travel and stress.
Dr. Lilli Link was great. I appreciated her candor, transparency and insights. She approached medicine differently than every other doctor I had visited in the past. It was holistic but comprehensive. There were also clear cause-and-effect scenarios that were logical.
Dr. Link suggested that I stop eating peanuts and dairy, stop taking Nexium for my heartburn and then replace my vitamins with the Parsley recommended multi-vitamin and probiotics. I also trimmed my alcohol consumption and started only drinking vodka or tequila.
I feel great! Literally never better. I no longer have any heart burn. I haven’t lost any pounds necessarily but I dropped in pant size. I have more energy. I can sense that my immune system is stronger. My complexion has also improved.
People tell me that I look better, I’m more vibrant. I have also become more cognizant of my overall well being which is a great thing.
Lastly, I have become a Parsley Health evangelist. I have had friends sign up based on my high praise for the program.
