She found him many talented people who helped to turn things around and was instrumental in him starting yoga at age 14, studying psychology, massage and reflexology before the age of 20. It was partly these experiences that lead Dean into the healing field to help others.
Her persistence and openness to locate what works still influences Deans approach today.

Kimberly specialises in clinical nutrition, focusing on the connection between the GUT and the BRAIN (and its axis). Kimberly uses nutritional medicine (food, diet and supplements) to assist clients with digestive complaints and nervous system disorders.
The gastrointestinal system (your digestive system) has its own nervous system. In fact, it has been termed the ‘second brain’. This system, known as the enteric nervous system, while it can act independently of the nervous system, it also works in synergism (together) with our digestive system.
If either of these systems malfunctions, the other can too.
Kimberly works with you to determine any levels of biochemical imbalances in the body and brain through a full spectrum of nutritional and lifestyle analyses. The correction of such imbalances through the proper use of nutritional supplementation, diet and lifestyle modifications may help to improve:
- Nervous system disorders
- Sleep quality
- Weight management
- Digestive complaints
- Stress management
- Liver function (support)
- Food sensitivity
- Leaky GUT
- Fatigue & adrenal support
- Skin disorders
