Let It In with Guy Lawrence

Feb 1, 2021

#154 This week, my lovely guest is Dr. Nisha J. Manek. Nisha is a Rheumatologist and “a seeker of Truth.” She graduated from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio and completed her medical studies at the University of Glasgow, Scotland. In her commitment to innovative approaches to health and wellness, Nisha seeks to synthesize her work as a physician and scientist with Spiritual inquiry and practice.

Our conversation revolved around bridging science and spirituality. Nisha tells us about how our preoccupation with technology has distracted us from realizing our true potential as humans. “We have forgotten what we are truly capable of,” Dr. Nisha tells us. We also talk about the potentials of medicine, and how if it evolves out from Chemistry, it can be much more healing for the patients and the doctors themselves. In this episode, you will hear answers to questions regarding the importance of intention, and whether it can alter the laws of nature itself. Can one man alter the PH of water, by intention alone? Tune in to hear all about it.

About Dr Nisha: Nisha Manek was born in the highlands of Kenya, a region along the Great Rift Valley not far from the equator. She spent her early upbringing in the village of Ol’Kalou in the province of Kenya’s famous tea plantations.

Nisha graduated Summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa honor society from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio. She completed her medical studies at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom. Nisha did her fellowship in rheumatology at Stanford University, Stanford, California. She was faculty in the Division of Rheumatology at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota for more than eleven years.

At Mayo Clinic, Nisha served on many boards, including the inflammatory arthritis clinical working group; the task was setting the standard of care for patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Additionally, she served on the research committee for rheumatology assessing new protocols for arthritis studies.

In her commitment and dedication to innovative approaches to health and wellness, she seeks to synthesize and unify her work as a physician and scientist with Spiritual inquiry and practice. With mentorship of Dr. William A. Tiller, Professor Emeritus of Stanford University Department of Material Science and Engineering, she is studying the potential power of human consciousness and intention in healing. Related to the subject of consciousness and healing, Nisha moderated HH 14th Dalai Lama’s visit to Mayo clinic in 2008.
