Healing takes time: chronic health conditions don’t develop overnight, which means they can’t be fixed overnight, either. That's why Parsley Health memberships are a year long—our medical providers and health coaches spend the necessary time to truly get to know you and to figure out the root cause of your symptoms so they can effectively treat your health issues.
At Parsley Health, we're able to achieve consistent, successful outcomes among our members—85% report a reduction in symptoms in the first year of care—because we're committed to your health journey. By building long-term relationships with your provider and health coach, you'll tap into an unmatched support system that’s dedicated to helping you feel better.
“The key is that we do a very deep dive and cast a broad net,” says Parsley Health's Dr. Julie Taw , MD, because, “functional medicine is very personalized based on the conditions.”
Here’s what you can expect at every stage of your Parsley Health journey:
Start your Parsley journey
You'll begin by completing your in-depth medical questionnaires, which paint the full picture of your health history, symptoms, and lifestyle. These in-depth questions help us get to know you at a deeper level. You'll also get started with the Parsley Symptom Tracker, an online questionnaire that you'll complete before every medical or health coach visit. This tool will help you and your medical team track your progress over time. You'll continue to update it over the course of your membership.
Next, you’ll meet with your medical provider and health coach—otherwise known as your medical team. You'll also work with care managers who will answer questions, schedule appointments, keep track of your prescriptions, and help you with paperwork, insurance coverage, and more.
Your first medical visit will be 60 minutes; your first visit with your health coach will be 45 minutes. During these visits, your provider and health coach will follow up on your medical questionnaires to understand your health concerns and provide their initial health recommendations.
Get assessments and insights
At this stage, you will complete your provider-recommended blood work and any advanced specialty testing tailored to your symptoms and health goals. What makes Parsley Health different from other medical practices is that we can identify and address several chronic conditions at once. “Specialists do some of the testing we do, but you’d have to see a lot of different sub-specialists,” says Dr. Taw.
When you review the results with your provider and health coach, you’ll talk through their insights to identify the root cause of your symptoms. You’ll receive more recommendations for how to heal with a personalized health plan, which will address any underlying conditions with the appropriate treatment protocols, including supplements and medication if needed. It will also have recommendations for better nutrition, improved sleep, stress management, and integrating more healthy movement into your routine.
Follow your plan and track your progress
While your personalized care plan will evolve over time, you know have the tools to start working toward your health goals. You’ll follow your medical provider and health coach's recommendations for nutrition, stress reduction, movement, and sleep optimization, as well as any supplements and medication needed to treat your conditions. You'll continue to track your progress through the Parsley Symptom Tracker, seeing how your symptoms change in real time.
Over the course of your membership, you'll continue having medical and health coach visits while staying in touch with your medical team through unlimited messaging on your My Parsley Health portal. As always, you can work with your medical team to reassess your plan and conduct additional testing as needed.
Get support and see results
Your medical provider and health coach will continue to monitor your healing progress while optimizing other areas of your wellbeing. Struggling with your new regiment? They can help you adjust, making tweaks when necessary. Your care plan is supposed to work for you and your lifestyle, needs, budget, and goals.
