Why Listen To Your Gut?

The basis for everything I do – whether it's helping people to heal, or lose weight, or create a more fulfilling life – is always based upon listening to your own gut and letting your own intuition and body wisdom guide you. Why? Because no expert, or specialist, or PhD knows your body better than you do. No one knows your higher purpose and passions better than you do. Your conscious mind may not know, yet. But your body and your spiritual self know. So in all things, Listen To Your Gut (LTYG). Because it will never steer you wrong. And then combine that with research, reason and trial-testing and you'll be unstoppable!

I'm here to help you connect to your inner strength, your own body wisdom, and then to give you the tools you need to make your vision (for healing, for growth, for relationship) a reality. Because the more you align with your core self, the more freedom you have in your daily life. And the more freedom you have, the more joy you have – in each and every day. And that, I firmly believe, is the point of life. It's why we're all here.

About Jini


"You'll never be able to have kids, or hold down a job, you'll be in and out of the hospital for the rest of your life, but you'll qualify for disability insurance."

That was the pronouncement my doctor gave me back in 1986 after diagnosing me with an incurable disease (widespread Crohn's disease). Yes, back then some doctors did actually talk to patients like that! But I am actually thankful my doctor was so blunt and honest with me because it really gave me the motivation to do whatever it took to heal myself!

After healing myself (I have been 100% drug and surgery-free for over 20 years), I made my healing methods available to other people with ulcerative colitis, Crohn's, diverticulitis and IBS. After thousands of people healed themselves of their digestive disease, they started asking for my help with other conditions.

With three children and a very large extended family, I was already searching out natural remedies that worked for a large variety of ailments from ear infection to high cholesterol. In addition to all of the effective remedies I already had for everything related to the gastrointestinal tract – from hemorrhoids to heartburn.

So with this site – LTYG (Listen To Your Gut) – I wanted to make all of those effective home remedies available to everyone! Because life should be about freedom = joy. Not about pain and suffering.

In 2007 I started creating resources for my readers who were already healed of their digestive disease, but wanted to progress even further into full-body, vibrant living. There is a huge difference between being disease-free and being vibrantly healthy. In the years since then, we have amassed fantastic resources like teleseminars, podcasts, videos etc. all dealing with very specific aspects of optimal health – like safe detox and pH balance, emotional and spiritual healing, hormone balance, etc. I have made all these fantastic resources also available to you on this LTYG site. Many of these resources are available on my blog - just enter your question or keyword into the Search box. Or you can start with the Teleseminar section, or the Book section.

Everything that I've done, since I published my first book back in 2000, has been in response to things I needed in my own life, or things my readers have asked me to do. That's how my LTYG Shoppe came into being. My overseas readers in places like Slovakia and Hong Kong were emailing me saying, "The shipping charges are killing me! Isn't there just ONE place I can go to get all the supplements recommended in your books – rather than having to order from 10 different companies?"

Likewise, the supplements that I have formulated (like Absorb Plus, FissureHeal, HemorrHeal, etc.) also came from need – I needed these things to heal myself and they didn't exist. So I created them and then made them available to others who were suffering.

My hope for you is that you can learn to connect with and listen to the amazing wisdom contained in your own gut. You may call this your body wisdom, intuition, precognition, a hunch, or the still small voice. Whatever! Just open to it and begin to trust and by listening to your gut you will move closer and closer to the fullest, most amazing expression of yourself on this earth. Someone that is strong, healthy, vibrant, joyful, playful, adventurous and filled with peace.

Jini Patel Thompson has earned a reputation worldwide as an expert on natural treatment for gastrointestinal disorders, appearing on numerous radio and TV shows. Her first book, Listen To Your Gut, is now sold in over 60 countries worldwide, and her health articles have been published in magazines and newspapers throughout North America, Europe and Australia. 

Jini lives with her husband and three children, 2 dogs, 2 cats & 5 horses in White Rock, British Columbia. She continues to research and write about natural remedies and treatments for a variety of gastrointestinal and other disorders. Her passion is seeing people go from being ill --> to disease-free --> to fully vibrant and energetic!

Jini's Healing Journey

In 1989, Jini Patel Thompson was weak, malnourished, and wracked with pain from a serious bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease. Skeletally thin, she was unable to eat almost anything without suffering intestinal bleeding and cramping. Despite their best efforts, the medical profession was unable to help her. Jini was taking 13 pills a day, and her doctors told her that she would never be able to work, have children, or live a normal life.

After years of feeling tortured by her inflammatory bowel disease, she literally decided to heal herself, or to die trying. Refusing surgery, she began a seven-year mission researching and experimenting with home remedies and natural treatments for gastrointestinal illness. Over time, Jini discovered eight key steps that nearly everyone with a colon or bowel syndrome can take in order to heal their gastrointestinal disease, and has been drug and surgery free since 1989. 

These eight key steps are:
  1. Providing bowel rest using a liquid diet
  2. Killing off the disease-causing bad bacteria and fungus in the gut 
  3. Re-populating the gastrointestinal tract with good bacteria
  4. Healing intestinal inflammation and ulceration
  5. Resolving nutritional deficiencies
  6. Detoxing your living environment
  7. Addressing the emotional factors underlying your disease
  8. Balancing your hormones
Full instructions, explanations and dosages for each of these healing steps are contained in Jini’s popular first book Listen To Your Gut, now in its second edition and sold in over 60 countries worldwide. Watch this video as Jini walks you through each of these 8 steps:

Jini has continued to research and experiment, winning international recognition as an expert on natural remedies for gastrointestinal disorders. She has written several books on natural healing for colon and bowel disease, including Listen to Your Colon, Listen to Your IBS, and The IBD Remission Diet

Even if you have tried every bowel and colon disease treatment available without success, don’t give up hope – Jini’s natural remedies have helped tens of thousands of people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) such as Crohn’s and colitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diverticulitis, chronic constipation , and hemorrhoids (also called piles) worldwide.
