Ashley Brooke shares what she loves about Parsley Health

Back in October I wrote a post on my experience so far with Parsley Health, and if you haven’t read it yet, hop on over and catch up here! I promise it is worth the read.

But here is a little refresher:

Parsley Health uses functional, conventional, and personalized medicine to help you achieve your health goals, by first getting to know you. There is a comprehensive medical history review, then you get to choose a doctor and a health coach who become your on call health team. You get access to them throughout the year and together, they help you form a long term health plan.

Parsley Health was founded in 2016 by Dr. Robin Berzin MD, a Columbia-trained physician, digital health expert, and leader in functional medicine. Robin believes that medicine should put nutrition, wellness and prevention on the front lines of health care, while simultaneously making care smart and data-driven to meet our needs in today’s world.



I’ve now been with Parsley Health for a little over 4 months now and I can honestly say it has made such an impact on my health. I mentioned in my first post that I did a TON of lab work, more than I’ve ever done, and was waiting the results. I was so excited to have my video call with my doctor in October to review everything.

This call was such an interesting call. It’s so funny to find out that you can be doing all the right things – eating well, exercising, drinking all the water – but that your body still might be missing some things and needing an extra “boost”. For the most part, my blood work came back great, thank goodness. I just needed to begin or increase intake of a few supplements like Vitamin D, B, etc… But the most interesting thing I learned was through a breath test, of all things. My breath test showed clear signs that I had stomach issue that needed to be addressed.

To be honest, I was actually relieved. I’ve had stomach issues for as long as I could remember, so hearing this was just so encouraging! There was a reason why I was always feeling this way and there was a solution. I ended up going on a month long regiment of antibiotics and am now half-way through a two month anti-microbials treatment, which is just a long was of saying: I spent the entire month of December getting rid of the bad bacteria with antibiotics and am now rebuilding my system with good bacteria. It’s been a process, but one I’ve actually been so excited about, ha! I honestly already feel a difference, even though it could still take a few months.

I just feel *so* much better in general. And, there is something to be said about being able to sit down with a doctor who actually sees you and validates what you already knew (but maybe could never prove) to be true.

All of this, coupled with regular conversations with my Parsley assigned health coach, have really been incredibly helpful. I love that if I have a question on anything, I’m able to just pop into the portal and send a question to my health coach or my doctor! For example, while on the antibiotics I was getting pretty bad headaches. I let me health coach know, and she encouraged me to try brewing strong ginger tea. And surprisingly, (or I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised!) it really helped!


I haven’t been able to stop talking about my Parsley experience to any one who would listen. I’m just so grateful to have found it. If you are looking to really dig into your health this year, I cannot recommend Parsley enough.

  1. Thank you so much for posting your review! I am considering Parsley for myself for what sounds like your same issue! It helps to hear that someone besides the people who posted reviews on their website had a positive experience! Thank you again!

      • I really need something for my son who has chronic stomach issues that GI doctors haven’t figured out yet. Do you have an update on yourself that you should share relative to this program’s ability to help you. So far in this process, have you been able to work while trying new meds or supplements? When my (adult) son was trying GI meds he needed to be near a bathroom a lot and really couldn’t work. Thank you.
