A doctor as well as a patient, Dr. Nikhil Joshi was born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland. After earning his undergraduate degree at the University of Calgary, he received his medical degree at St. John’s Memorial University. He followed that up with internal medicine residency and then further specialized in the study of allergy and immunology at the University of Manitoba.
In 2013, at the age of 24, Dr. Joshi was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Dr. Joshi saw first-hand, through his treatment, the difficulty that faces patients. As Dr. Joshi journeyed through the medical system during his cancer treatment, he found guided meditation helped his well-being immensely, leading to an increase in his quality of life. It was this discovery that led him to creating the Medical Mediation app with the ultimate purpose of improving the lives of people suffering from chronic illnesses.
He has gone on to publish The End of Suffering, a book of his personal experience, to give hope to other cancer patients.
Dr. Joshi was fortunate enough to make it through his cancer treatments and to be declared cancer-free. While his battle with cancer took him away from medicine for a time, he did return and currently practices as an Immunologist in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
