Welcome To Guided Health

Guided Health specialises in clinical nutrition, focusing on the connection between the ‘Gut’ and ‘Brain’ using natural treatments, complementary and alternative medicine to correct imbalances for individuals suffering from digestive complaints and mood disorders such as sleep disturbances, stress, anxiety and depression.

A clinical nutritionist uses nutritional medicine (food, diet and supplements) to assist these clients in maintaining balance and optimal health. A healthy nervous system is NOT free from instability (like stress, anxiety, depression or insomnia), a healthy nervous system responds to instability in a healthy and functional way so it integrates life experiences, which enables growth, evolution amd transformation.

The GUT-BRAIN CONNECTION:

The digestive system itself is a centre point of our nervous system. A malfunction digestive system can cause problems for the nervous system and vice a versa.

Kimberly Miller

Clinical Nutritionist

Kimberley has always had a passion for health; however, it was not until after many years of unhealthy lifestyle choices in her twenties that she really understood the ramifications of what these choices were doing to her mind and body (GUT-BRAIN CONNECTION)

Kimberly went on to obtain a Bachelor Degree in Health Science (Nutritional Medicine).

It was at the College that Kimberly discovered that the scientific field of nutrients can play a major role in a person’s general well-being, both physically and mentally. Over time, Kimberly understood the complexity of the body systems and what it takes for the mind and body to function effectively and efficiently.

It was during her years of study that she began to work for Dean Smith, a holistic psychologist. Working so closely with Dean’s clients she discovered her passion was in mental health and chose to work in collaboration.

Kimberly’s passion for health has now turned into a desire to educate and help others to reach their optimal level of health & happiness.

Dean has a passion for the healing arts and working with clients.  He has been studying and working with clients for over 20 years.  His past work experience includes working in the addiction area, mental health, public sector, and with victims of crime.  He currently runs a full time private practice in Melbourne’s inner northern suburbs where he specialises in working in an integrated and holistically way with clients.

Advances in technology have made studying the complex physiological process of the mind much more accessible. This has also lead to technologies that have been developed based on this research and over the next ten to twenty years, these findings will probably lead to the biggest changes in mental health treatment since Freud’s talking cure. These technologies are becoming more common in treatment methods, however, are still not widely used in the mental health sector. The technology that offers the most is Biofeedback, specifically EEG biofeedback (or neurotherapy) and Heart Rate Variability Training.

In many cases, EEG biofeedback (or Neurotherapy, neurofeedback) is found to be a helpful tool to use in conjunction with counselling and nutrition. Unfortunately, it is relatively unheard of in Australia, and there are only a few practitioners using it. Basically, EEG biofeedback is useful to ‘retrain’ the nervous system, helping people to be more relaxed, sleep better, be more focused, improve memory, increase attention and help them integrate change.
