Director of the Mudita Health Clinic
Ayurvedic Practitioner, Naturopath & Herbalist,
Kester has been a practicing Naturopath and Western Herbalist since 1996. In 2000 whilst living in India he fell ill with a chronic gut parasite. He applied all the natural medicine he knew to heal himself but it didn’t work. He went to Western Doctors and even the strong pharmaceuticals they prescribed didn’t work. It was only after seeing an Ayurvedic Practitioner in Adelaide and implementing some simple dietary changes and taking Ayurvedic herbal formulas that he actually got better. And quickly! He was hooked - finally a system of medicine that had the answers and could help him to help his clients.
Since that experience, Kester has studied Ayurvedic Medicine through the American Institute of Vedic Studies (Dr Frawley), the Australasian Institute of Ayurvedic Studies (Dr Ajit) and Equals International. He spent six months gaining clinical experience at the Ayurvedic Research Institute and with Private Doctors in Pune, India and spent several years studying pulse and prescribing with Ayushakti Ayurveda (Dr Smita Naram). He continues his studies with various Ayurvedic Teachers both in Australia and abroad.
Kester teaches the Ayurvedic component at several Yoga Teacher Training Programs in Byron Bay and the Gold Coast, was a regular speaker at Gaia Retreat and Spa in Northern NSW for several years and regularly has articles published in national and international health magazines and websites. Kester has been a formal Zen student of Doko’s since 2008 and was ordained as a Zen Buddhist Monk in early 2012. He also trained in the Japanese martial art of Aikido for over 12 years... but now is a keen surfer.
Kester ran a successful family health clinic in South Australia for over a decade before moving to Northern NSW with his wife, Nadia, in late 2009 to establish the Mudita Institute. He now offers Ayurvedic Consultations through the Mudita Health Clinic as well as a variety of courses on Ayurveda throughout Australia. He is also available for speaking engagements. For more information see the Mudita Health Clinic Page or our Courses page.
Kester is available for consultations on Thursdays and Fridays.
