The Best Health Investment I Made This Year

December 16, 2015

As the New Year approaches and we start to think of our goals, it can feel overwhelming to start thinking about when, where, and how to invest in ourselves and our health.

At Parsley we’ve got you covered. From customized medical care to unlimited health coaching, we’ve got the tools you need to move forward and take control of your health.

But don’t just take our word for it! This week Parsley member, Jena Viviano, shares the details of her journey to wellness and how Parsley was able to help her along the way…

At the start of last year, I was really struggling. Frustrated, annoyed, sick and absolutely stressed out, I was massively failing in the health and wellness department of my life.

To just give you a glimpse – my stomach ached every time I ate, I was suffering from insomnia , my face and back developed cystic acne , and I couldn’t lose a pound to save my soul. But more than that, the internal war that I faced on a daily basis was debilitating. I was constantly fighting insecurities about my body, defined my worth by the number on the scale and festered in shame and guilt when I wasn’t 100% perfect with my diet or exercise plan.

By the time June rolled around, I had had enough. I was done feeling sick. I was done defining my day by what I ate or didn’t eat or if I went to the gym or not. To be honest, I was just done being unhappy.

Which is where Dr. Robin Berzin  and Parsley Health serendipitously stepped in.

Right from the start, I knew this experience and investment was going to be different than anything else I’d ever “tried” (because let’s face it, I’ve tried it all). Immediately I felt like I was a person, not just a patient. The first time I met with Dr. Berzin she took an immense amount of time listening to my frustrations, examining my medical and emotional history, and explaining to me the subsequent course of action. I had a plan and a support system that was going to wade through the storm with me. I felt relieved and for the first time hopeful.

Over the past six months, Dr. Berzin and her team have helped me push through the muck. It’s been hard, but it’s been so worth it. They have been with me every step of the way and for that, I’m eternally grateful. From every health coaching session to the simplicity of ordering my supplements , to the fun extracurricular events they host, joining Parsley Health was by far the best decision and investment I made this year.

Six months later I feel so free. Truly. I’m a totally different person than the one who first walked through their doors.

Through their combination of movement, supplements , and diet I was able to clear my skin, heal my gut and drop ten pounds without even trying. And while those things have dramatically improved my quality of life, the biggest difference I’ve seen is the transformation of my heart. Because of the therapeutic sessions with my health coach, I’m no longer held bondage to the lies of perfection, poor body image and using food as medication. Talk about a return on investment.

So if you’re thinking about taking the leap and making the investment, you won’t regret it. I promise you, it will be the best money you have ever spent.
