How I Healed My Digestive Issues for Good

February 21, 2019

Not everyone who comes to Parsley Health is dealing with a chronic condition.

We’re bringing back our Parsley Health member stories where we hear from real patients, in their own words, about their incredible health journeys that changed their lives.

This week we sat down with Arianna Simpson, a 26-year-old early investor based in San Francisco who came to Parsley Health in hopes of finding a realistic and long-term approach to help her look and feel her best.

Read on to learn how Arianna was able to heal her digestive issues, regain her energy levels and lose 15 pounds with ease.

 

PH: Tell us a bit about yourself.
I enjoy running, reading, skiing and traveling, and generally lead a very active lifestyle. I have an incredibly awesome life that I am super grateful for – though sometimes keeping up with myself presents a challenge.

PH: Tell us about your health story?
I had had a number of digestive issues and I had been tested for celiac disease, but when the results came back negative, I assumed there was some other mysterious issue going on that I would just have to live with.

Until Parsley, nobody took the time to walk me through the fact that I might have a sensitivity or intolerance (even without celiac disease) and that I might feel considerably better if I cut gluten out of my diet.

PH: How did you find Parsley Health and what made you decide to sign up?
I have a few friends who are familiar with the company, and they all spoke very highly of the founder, Robin Berzin, and of the quality of care, so I decided to give it a go myself.

PH: How was your experience at Parsley different?
It’s incredibly refreshing to not feel like you are being rushed in and out of an appointment, which has been my experience with many doctors in the past. I also really enjoy the approach of determining and treating the root, rather than using drugs to placate symptoms.

Learn how Parsley Health can help you with your digestive issues.

PH: How do you feel differently now than you did before?
I wasn’t really keen on following a gluten-free diet as it seemed like an insurmountable hurdle, but I decided to try it.  It took about a week and a half for my body to adjust, but once it did, I started having incredible amounts of energy and feeling better than I ever had. I also lost 15 pounds effortlessly, my mood is great, and my skin is perfect. It’s amazing!

PH: How has your improvement in your health impacted the rest of your life?
I look and feel way better, which has been a major plus in both my career and personal life. I’m also embarking on a new business venture I’m incredibly excited about, and I genuinely believe that if it hadn’t been for the extra energy I got once I cut out gluten and most sugar from my diet, I wouldn’t have been able to do that.


I have astonishing amounts of energy, I'm constantly in a good mood, and my thinking is clearer and more creative. I didn't know it was possible to feel like this. I literally feel like I'm Wonder Woman.

PH: What do you think really made the difference for you at Parsley?
I think the personalized attention really makes a difference – I can tell that Dr. Lester and Brittany (my health coach) are very thoughtful and genuinely care about good patient outcomes. I also think that the approach really works; it’s not just “let’s fix a problem today” but “how can we feel better and be healthier in the long term”?

I didn’t necessarily have anything wrong with me, but I also didn’t realize that I had been feeling ok, rather than awesome. I now feel awesome and I’m super grateful to Parsley for that!

More transformational stories

When it comes to health, it’s important to remember that what works for one person may not for the next. That’s why our doctors work with patients to create tailor-made programs specifically for them, instead of providing a magic pill or one-size-fits-all solution.

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