What I Do When I’m Feeling Heavy, Tired, And Toxic

July 8, 2019

Even though I eat clean most of the time and organize my social life around yoga class, I still find myself feeling heavy tired and toxic sometimes.

It can be because of stress—let’s face it, I am a startup founder, physician, and mama to a toddler so sometimes life feels just a little hectic!

Other times it’s that I fell down the NYC social rabbit hole called the cocktail hour—even one a night adds up, disrupting my sleep, screwing up my sensitive digestion, and slowing down my metabolism.

Or it’s just that I’m spending too much time at my computer and not enough time running around and shaking it out.

When I feel this way, my immediate go-to is our 7 Day Total-Body Breakthrough. The recipes, workout plan, and gratitude journal are easy to follow and keep me from having to think too hard about being healthy.

I’m especially partial to the Avocado Power Smoothie recipe, which includes Parsley’s delicious vegan protein with 26 grams of protein.

All of the recipes are gluten and dairy-free, which is in line with the plant-based Paleo style of eating I try to stick to. Lunches and dinners are packed with protein and veggies. When I’m too busy to cook, I’ll grab wild sockeye salmon over greens from Dig Inn or a plate of roasted veggies from an organic take out spot by Parsley’s offices. And I hydrate with my favorite go-to kombucha from Pilot.

On this program I feel full, grounded, and energized. Usually for me somewhere from five to seven days is the perfect amount of time to fully reset and refresh, and to feel fit clean and light again.

For other people, seven days isn’t quite enough. If you need to figure out what’s causing acne, headaches, allergies, or digestive problems like gas and bloating, we recommend getting to the root of food sensitivities and healing inflammation by continuing the reset for a full 21 days.

This is because your immune system doesn’t stop reacting to a food you ate for 21 days so you don’t experience a complete de-escalation of inflammation if you don’t do a program for at least that long.

Our 7-Day Total-Body Breakthrough gives you everything you need to reset both physically and mentally, without feeing deprived. I also recommend gut healing supplements like our 30 billion count Parsley Probiotic with the most studied and proven beneficial strains, and a vegan digestive enzyme to help you absorb the powerful nutrients you are taking in.

Seven days later you’ll feel refreshed and energized and that heavy, tired, toxic feeling will be nowhere in sight.

Parsley Health is the only medical practice that leverages personalized testing with whole body treatments.
