Six Months of Parsley Health = Ten Years of Therapy

Once a week we’ll hear from real Parsley Health members, in their own words, about how working with Parsley Health has changed their lives. This week we’re talking to Richard, a 35-year old real estate executive living in New York City.

I’ve always considered myself a healthy person, but not the kind of person who was really into “holistic” medicine. I lifted with trainers. I used supplements . I ate healthy and I had a traditional medical team for when I got sick. And I saw a psychologist every week. This was my mind, body and soul team.

But I was miserable. I was gaining weight. I was stressed out. I was really unhappy.

I always paralleled my unhappiness with my level of professional success. So I focused all of my energy on work. But even with all of that effort and energy—and eventual success—the happiness didn’t follow. Everything on paper was great, but I didn’t feel great.

I came to Parsley with the mindset that I would give it a try for three months. I figured I didn’t have anything to lose by giving it a shot.

Frankly, the time and cost was less expensive than the team I had been using already.

We started by testing.

The testing was like no data I had ever seen before. It was more kinds of data than I’ve ever been given about myself.

I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Hashimotos Thyroiditis that I didn’t know I had. None of my doctors had even mentioned it was a possibility. That was what was making me tired and depressed and causing me to gain weight.

We’ve essentially been able to eliminate all of the symptoms.

I’ve lost weight since then. But that’s just a bonus. The most important change is that my mind and body feel healthier. I can feel it in all of my relationships, both personal and professional. I feel better at my job and happier in my social life and how I engage with everyone.

The most unexpected benefit has been the mental clarity – mental clarity that I’ve re-discovered over the past six months that I couldn’t achieve with over ten years of weekly psychologist appointments.

You deserve a better doctor! Parsley Health is it.
