How Parsley Health Helped Me Heal My Thyroid Disorder

February 19, 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 a 28-year-old female designer from Brooklyn who came to us looking for help managing her thyroid disorder – Hashimoto’s disease. This is her story:

I came to Parsley Health looking for a doctor that would be able to help me treat Hashimoto’s and that had traditional medical training but also understood the impact of lifestyle, supplements, and diet on one’s health. I had spent years treating my thyroid, slow digestion, and hormonal imbalance with a mixture of naturopathic medicine, diet, western and eastern medicine, and worked with a chiropractor. My symptoms continued to progress and I felt like I was just ping-ponging between practitioners who weren’t looking to see if my symptoms might all be connected.

I was impressed by how thorough my initial appointment with Dr. Soyona Rafatjah was; she took the time to ask questions no one else had. I was really excited to gain more knowledge and insight into what was going on with my health.

After an initial modified core diet and a gut healing protocol, my health coach, Jackie Damboragian, recommended I try an autoimmune paleo approach to my diet. I am so grateful for her and that suggestion! I experienced a huge improvement in my health; I have more sustained energy throughout the day and increased mental clarity. I handle stress better, and my skin isn’t breaking out all the time! I am a more optimistic, enthusiastic version of myself – a person I remember from years ago. In the past I’ve struggled to lose weight, but over the last three months, I’ve lost ten pounds. I’ve slowly started re-introducing foods and so far my body is handling it well and my immune system is much stronger!

When I came to Parsley Health I didn’t feel like myself anymore; I had a lot of anxiety, mood changes, and a lack of energy. I used to be a very spontaneous, fun loving, and outgoing person and I couldn’t even remember how that felt. All the changes were overwhelming and at one point Dr. Rafatjah asked me to meditate on the healthier version of myself that I would be six months from now. She told me if I believed it, I could be it. Realizing how much positivity and visualization are a part of the healing journey was very powerful. I am so grateful to the Parsley Health team. I finally have doctors I trust and it has led to a huge mental shift that has left me feeling like myself again and in control of my health.
