It’s seldom we open a training up to the public, and even more seldom that John speaks outside of Joyful Belly. If this is an area of interest, please join us for Ayurveda, Nutrition and Digestion training call with John Immel, founder of Joyful Belly Ayurvedic School of Nutrition.

John specializes in the advanced treatment of digestive tract pathology. He holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Harvard University. He first discovered Ayurveda while working on a public health project in Bangladesh. He received his Ayurveda training and certification in 2008. John‘s interest in Ayurveda and digestive tract pathology was inspired by a complex digestive disorder acquired from years of international travel.

After witnessing Ayurveda’s compelling efficiency and practical ease in treatment of his own digestive disorder, John was convinced others could benefit. He sought a way to introduce Ayurveda to the broader American public and make it more culturally accessible. This was the genesis of Joyful Belly. Using ingredients familiar from his childhood, John created thousands of Ayurvedic recipes for the average American. Joyful Belly proves Ayurveda is a practical way to improve everyday health & wellness. His simple, direct, and familiar approach has helped thousands on their journey to health. John recently published, “Explore Your Hunger: A Guide to Hunger, Appetite & Food” with co-author Natalie Immel.
