By now everybody has heard of the Gut-Brain Axis, but hearing of it and healing it are two very different things. In this two-part workshop Dr Jimi starts out with the traditional wisdom of Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine that have been talking about the gut-brain for millenia and then moves in to the latest scientific research. This includes a deep dive into the world of the probiome and the incredible culture of bacteria that form the foundation stone upon which your health, immunity and even mood is based upon. He then provides specific dietary and herbal protocols for the 3 main gut-brain patterns he encounters in clinic before exploring the little known realm of the Liver-Brain connection and its effect upon physiological and psychological health. If you are one of the large number of people experiencing gut-brain disharmony then this is a great opportunity to empower yourself with the skills and knowledge to make real and profound changes.
Dr Jimi is one of those rare individuals that is an expert in his field that also knows how to teach others. He has spoken at the United Nations, opened for Deepak Chopra and has even been personally insulted by the Dalai Lama. He teaches integrative doctors across America, sits on the faculty of the America Integrative Health and Medicine Association and is a lifetime member of the Tibetan Medical Institute.
After completing his internship in Chinese Medicine in Beijing hospital he has since completed 3 research exchanges at Ayurvedic hospitals in India, 2 with the Lama-physicians at the Tibetan Medical Institute, 1 with the Persian Hakims of the Unani Tibb Hippocratic tradition and is currently en route to Mongolia to study their traditional medicine at the national university in Ulaan Bataar.
Dr Jimi’s original degree at the ANU was in philosophy and eastern religion which is why Dr Seroya Crouch describes him as ‘a philosopher of medicine’. He has written several books, none of which have been published, acclaimed or even read.
He is also the CEO and founder of One Health Organisation, a wellness-based charity that has distributed over 8 metric tonnes of herbs and supplements to 100 locations across 12 countries since 2005.
He brings passion and enthusiastic hand gestures to every conversation he is a part of.
