How Parsley Health Helped Me Heal My Chronic Illness

February 25, 2019

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 Douglas, a 38-year-old who works in the tech industry, who came to Parsley with the chronic illness Crohn’s Disease:

I joined Parsley Health because I have Crohn’s Disease, as well as a couple of other chronic ailments. I wanted to find remedies to help mitigate my daily, mild, but very unpleasant symptoms. Basically, I’ve been carrying too much “illness baggage” over the years, and I wanted to figure out a way to unpack those bags. Western medicine has been helpful. But mostly used weapons grade solutions to deal with extreme symptoms (some of which I don’t have). My day-to-day for the past decade has been consistent, dull pain and gastric pain of varying sorts. All of it, I have been able to cope with and carry with me to maintain an active and happy life. But I was getting tired of all of the extra pain that came with my symptoms.

My initial experience at Parsley Health was a pleasant surprise. They are located in a tech friendly co-working space. I appreciated and enjoyed how much time the doctors and health coaches spent with me. Like any type of therapy, the more time you get to spend with a professional discussing the problem, the clearer it becomes, making the solution clearer. This makes the whole situation appear more manageable to me.

At Parsley Health, Dr. Jeffrey Egler recommended I go on a paleo inspired elimination diet for three months. He also gave me supplements and a series of blood testing.

I feel much better thanks to Parsley Health. My day to day symptoms still exist, but they are lessened. And two of my symptoms (red swollen dots around my eyes and gastric pain at the end of the day) have been eliminated!
My daily life has improved because Parsley Health has helped empower my self-care in a way that I’ve never experienced. It has introduced a level of daily accountability to my gut health that I didn’t have before. It’s like going to the gym every day, or having a mental health coach, but for my overall health. I’m happier and feel more in control of my IBD.

Parsley Health has been one of the best things I have done in the past 10 years to mitigate some of my IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) symptoms. Parsley Health’s bespoke wellness approach, tailored just to me, has been amazingly helpful and invaluable to improving my overall daily health.

Parsley Health is the only medical practice that leverages personalized testing with whole body treatments.
