I love this story because it’s a great example of the interconnectedness of our healing community here at LTYG! One of my readers, Nishta 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 Kiasha.

Nishta 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 Nishta 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 Nishta in What Doctors Don’t Tell You magazine, or you can download the pdf.


Mom Heals Daughter Using Jini’s Protocols then Becomes a Doctor

  • Nishta, Congratulations!!!
    I have gone through the exact same voyage with my daughter and we did the elemental diet last summer. Because she was only 7 years old, my husband and me did it with her. It was NOT a piece of cake but worth every single moment of tears & stress… 14months later she is still wonderfully healthy and without any drugs, having a shake 5xp/w.

    I also thought of helping others, especially sick children and I urged the doctors at Boston Children’s & Mount Sinai NY to spread the word. I even brought them sample packages of Absorb Plus.

    However, I feel my daughter’s sickness & her healing shouldn’t consume altogether our life and I decided against a professional career for myself.
    Nevertheless, I am positive you will be the best advocate to your patients & help many patients in the future. BEST of LUCK!

  • Thank you so much Gabriela. I’m so pleased that you managed to heal your daughter using Jinis protocols.
    I am very excited to be helping others achieve wellness too.
    Many thanks

  • Nishta, my 15 year old daughter was just diagnosed two weeks ago. I’d love to have a consult with you. I’m going to try your email in the article, but not sure if you’re at that one any longer. If you see this, please let me know: carlsonwriting@yahoo.com

    Thank you so much,

  • Hi Jini,
    I have got in touch with Amanda. I’m in Atlanta at the Institute of Functional Medicine conference. I will be in touch with her once I’m back home.
    Thank you.

  • Hi Jini,
    Dr Goldberg is not here but I did visit him last year. Dr Mark Hymen and many other brilliant Doctors are here. It’s amazing. I’ve learnt a lot. Do you know about the institute of functional medicine? These guys are all MDs, surgeons and Drs top of their field. Jini they are teaching what we’ve been preaching all along. They are using science based evidence to NOT go to chemical drugs straight away but to go to the root cause of the problem. Treat the person with diet, nutition, meditation water air etc.
    They advocate gut healing first and foremost as it’s the root cause of EVERY disease. They are changing the face if medicine and I’m on my way to being a certified functional medicine practitioner. I can’t wait for my next module. :))

  • I just wanted to pop back on this thread and say we had a wonderful consultation with Nishta! She’s formulating a plan for my daughter right now. She was incredibly knowledgeable, thorough, compassionate, and insightful. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking knowledge and consultation with this disease. She was easy to talk to and asked all the right questions. Thank you for posting this article, Jini! My daughter is now better off and we are less afraid. We finally feel like we’re moving in the right direction.

  • Hi Nishta,
    I am really impressed with what you have achieved.
    My 12 year old son was diagnosed with IBD this summer. I would like to get in touch with you and see if I can get him out of the drugs.
    I have read Jini’s LTYG ebook, IBD Remission Diet and Intestinal stricture healing book and also ordered some of the products but did not get time to try them as we are in and out of the hospital.
    Please let me know if I can contact you at the email above. Hope you can help me too.

  • Hi Bindu,
    I would love to try and help you. I’m out of the country till next Tuesday 27 th October. However please email me.
    Where do you live? We can Skype or you can come and see me in Kent.
    Many thanks

  • Thanks Nishta for your time and for a detailed plan for my son, I will keep you posted on his health.
    We had a great consultation and I think I made the right decision to contact you because I can see that you can understand what we as parents are going through trying to figure out the right path for our kids.

    Jini, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all the research you have done and given us so much hope. Your website came as a blessing looking for alternatives to all the harsh medication that was prescribed for my son.


  • Thank-you Bindu,
    You are most welcome. Working together with his plan in place, I am very hopeful that your son will feel better soon.
    Kindest Regards

    The pain is all around my belly button(small bowel), please guide me.


  • Hi..I’m Suki.
    My 24yr daughter this time has had a long relapse of chrons disease after being in remission for 3yrs..that is because she is still having steroids /anti-inflammatory/immunity suppressent..without which she cannot manage her symptoms (gas/bloating/etc..)
    We have done food intolerance testing/giving her vitamin supplements/probiotics/.yet she cannot manage with medication. .she’s on gluten and diary free diet based on her tests..
    I would like for to start reducing her strong medication which has doctors say are life long.
    What do I do?..she’s visiting USA next month..who can she see?where should she go?

    1. Hello Suki,

      Thank you for your question. Through Jini’s experience and many others we know it is possible to heal Crohn’s Disease and function well without prescription medications. I myself got off of all of my prescriptions and am doing much better through healing with Jini’s protocols.
      As for seeing a doctor here it really depends on what part of the USA she will be in. We have a few doctors we work with that are familiar with Jini’s protocols that can do phone and online appointments, you can contact them through their websites here:

      We also would recommend finding a Naturopath and/or people who work in integrative or functional medicine. However sometimes it takes some time to get a appointment, so it depends how long she is visiting the USA.

      Please let us know if we can help with anything else.

      Kind Regards,
      Customer Care
