Parsley Health is an amazing new functional medicine practice in Gramercy, founded by Dr. Robin Berzin. And we're obsessed - and not just with the name! Situated in the WeWork office on 23rd street, this practice is unlike any doctor’s office you may have ever experienced: combining natural therapies with the latest technology to promote whole body wellness. And in the not-so-distant future, you’ll be able to sip on some blended greens or elixirs while you wait (stay tuned).
Parsley’s 5 Tips for Feeling Fab
Upgrade your hydration level: Start every morning with a glass of warm water with fresh lemon juice to quench your body’s thirst and promote healthy digestion. You can also add Himalayan sea salt to help feed your adrenals and keep your cells hydrated.
Make DIY Spicy Carrot Coconut Soup. There’s nothing more comforting than a creamy soup this time of year. Make it healthy by pureeing roasted carrots, ginger, and green apple; add some fresh unsweetened coconut milk and you’ve got some heaven in a bowl.
Morning meditation in bed: Before you get out of bed spend 2-3 minutes thinking positive thoughts about the day ahead, set your intentions for what you’d like to accomplish, so you feel ready to take on anything. It’s the perfect way to make sure you get out of bed on the right foot.
Make fitness an adventure. Switch up your workout routine and find a class that makes sweating super fun. At Parsley we send our members on fitness adventures around the city; you can join us or create your own fitness tour.
Treat yourself. Nope, not to a sweet treat, but to some self-love. Book a massage; splurge on an acupuncture session; buy your favorite essential oils. Something that declares your health is a priority.
