5 year update:

Nishtha is now a clinical nutritionist and certified functional medicine practitioner specializing in IBD/IBS and autoimmune conditions! You can find her in London at Zest Integrated Health & Nutrition Clinic. You can find more information on her services offered as well as her pricing and how to contact.

You can also find her on Instagram @zesthealthnutrition:

I love this story because it’s a great example of the interconnectedness of our healing community here at LTYG! One of my readers, Nishtha Patel (no relation – Patel is a common Indian name – much like Smith in the U.S.) used the protocols in Listen To Your Gut to heal her daughter.

Nishtha was so inspired by what she learned and her experience of holistic healing via her daughter’s journey, that she went back to school to become a Naturopathic Doctor in the UK. She is now studying Functional Medicine in the U.S. and can be contacted for advice or consultations in-person, or via phone/Skype through her clinic ZEST.

I encourage you to book with Nishtha Patel if you would like the added support of a nutritionist and functional medicine practitioner in your Healing Journey, who is personally familiar with my protocols. How cool is that!! What a beautiful circle of learning, healing, and paying it forward.

Here’s the article published about Nishtha in What Doctors Don’t Tell You magazine, or you can download the pdf.
