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 Joanne, a 45-year old full-time mom living in NYC.
I came to Parsley Health because I was having extreme bloating and discomfort, not only at night but also during the day. My bloating got so bad that my OB was concerned about ovarian cancer. He sent me for an ultrasound.
Once the ultrasound ruled out ovarian cancer, I decided to get to the root of my problem. I assumed it was dietary. A friend who was using Parsley Health highly recommended that I see them, too.
I had symptoms of extreme bloating, distended stomach, and gas pains. I had always been thin but all of a sudden I looked pregnant and was constantly trying to hide my stomach. But the pain and discomfort was worse than my appearance. It was hard to get through the day.
My experience at Parsley Health was great from the start. My doctor listened to me intently. They connected my acid reflux to my existing problem, something I had never thought of. But suddenly it all made sense.
I feel great! I lost some weight, and more importantly, the extreme bloating and pain are gone.
Not only are my symptoms gone, but I also became much more aware of the importance of what I put in my body. I was eating so much bad bacteria and things got out of hand. But now I have more energy and am never lethargic, nor do I have the afternoon sugar or carb cravings! I also haven’t gotten sick all year. Not even one cold!
