We’re incredibly excited to have Dr. Tiffany Lester join the Parsley Health community. Dr. Tiffany is an internal medicine physician with specialized training in functional medicine, acupuncture, and nutrition. She also writes for leading wellness publications including The Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen, and Thoughtfully Magazine.
Here are a few things you need to know about her.
Q: Why did you become a doctor?
A: Being a doctor is the one of the only professions that combine my favorite things into one—love for nutrition and healthy eating, researching the latest science in medicine, and having the opportunity to transform a person’s life every single day.
Q: What’s the best part of your job?
A: Listening to the stories of triumph and struggle from my patients and through that process finding the answers together to why they came to my office in the first place. The unfolding of that story is like peeling back the layers of an onion and getting to the core of their illness. It often takes time and may involve tears but seeing people come out on the other side as a healthier person never gets old.
Q: What are three things you do everyday that are non-negotiable?
A: Meditate for 1 minute. Make someone laugh out loud (even if it’s just me!). Move my body.
Q: If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
A: Hard question because traveling to new cities is one of my first loves. If I could live anywhere in the world I would say London. In the United States I would say California.
Q: Last book you read?
A: The Gilded Years by Karin Tanabe
Q: Favorite food?
A: Healthy—Sweet potatoes, avocado, arugula … I can’t decide!
Unhealthy – Chocolate chip cookies
Q: Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
A: Everything is figureoutable. Everything. ~ Marie Forleo
