“When she was eight years old, Nisha decided to seek the truth. She never changed her mind. A native of Kenya, Nisha’s humble background propelled her to transcend limitations: gender, ethnic, and financial. She started her rheumatology career at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota. Nisha is an internally recognized leader in the field of integrative medicine. But she didn’t stop there. Nisha partnered with one of the world’s most innovative physicists: Emeritus professor, William A. Tiller of Stanford University and pushed the boundaries of what is possible in the physics lab. As part of her tenure with Professor Tiller, Nisha achieved an astonishing confirmation of Tiller physics by testing the sacred relics of the historical Buddha. One of her proudest moments was moderating HH the 14th Dalai Lama during a Mind-Life Institute conference at the Mayo clinic. With storytelling as a core skill, she has authored a one-of-a-kind book: Bridging Science and Spirit, closing the gap between two seemingly separate areas of knowledge. She is a fellow of the American College of Physicians and a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of the United Kingdom.”
