A little about Kim…

I was a fit, healthy athlete and PE teacher who ate extremely well. I ate very little junk food, strictly limited the amount of fat in my diet, and ate a healthy balanced diet, low in wheat and dairy. Yet I was SICK. I was always bloated, burping and farting, feeling lethargic, and chronically fatigued! I constantly suffered from diarrhoea, and eventually ended up with chronic fatigue. How could this be?

Then began my nutrition nightmare… Gastroscopies, colonoscopies, elimination diets, candida diets, you name it – I had tried it. I went through several invasive medical tests only to be given inconclusive labels like irritable bowel syndrome and gastric reflux. I was becoming more and more limited in what I would eat, and at one point had been tested as being intolerant to over 150 things.

Then started the biggest battle of my life so far – my battle against cervical cancer. Over the next 10 years I had three invasive operations to remove the cells that were threatening to leave me with no future of having children. I broke my sternum during a work accident, and went from being the PE teacher, to not being able to lift my arms above my head, and suffering years and years of pain. My marriage failed, we sold up, and I moved in with my sister.

The last straw was when my gorgeous cat Simba was run over, leaving me a shell of my old self. I was extremely depressed, and suffered from anxiety and panic attacks. I was put on anti-depressants and was seeing a psychologist regularly. I was 15kg over weight and had no energy to exercise. I was a workaholic, and stressed from the long hours and pressure. My stomach was getting worse rather than better and I had lost my will to live. And it was at this very moment I finally started to LISTEN!

The week I lost Simba, ten years ago, was the very week I started my path toward complementary medicine. I began seeing an acupuncturist/oriental counsellor, and it was here that I started to learn more about what my body was trying to tell me. It was hard work. I was holding on to old ways of thinking and being and wanting the world to change rather than embracing change myself. And then finally my naturopath, referred me to a kinesiologist, and my life changed FOR GOOD.

I didn’t know what kinesiology was! But in that session I learnt more about myself and the underlying imbalances in my body than I had in the last 10 years. I was astounded. I went home, googled kinesiology and the rest, as they say is history.

Through my study and hard work, I have changed my life and I now view the world in a holistic framework. I am positive and self-responsible. I re-married, became a mum and have found a diet system that is personalised and that actually works. My pain is minimal and I now only experience the odd bad day, rather than bad months! I am brave enough to set goals for my future, as I am no longer scared that I won’t be around to have a future. Instead I now look forward to quality time with my wonderfully supportive husband Dylan and our gorgeous little boy Loken.Loken

My purpose in life is assist others to live a pain free, healthy and happy life! And I am so grateful for the care and trust that my clients grant me in helping them to change.
