Our Story

Since the birth of our company in early 2012, our team has been working hard to develop products that help keep you and your family well with our NatureKits brand. While our products are absolutely life-changing in and of themselves, we always knew the vision for our company was much more than just a product line. So in early 2014, we shifted our focus to marpewellness.com, a place with professional, yet practical advise on the Dr. Brown Diet and how to implement it, as well as alternative medicine and how to incorporate it into your everyday life. From our database of free recipes to our basic meal planning service to our educational tutorials and videos, there is a subscription level that’s right for you.

Our Founders

David Brown, D.C., DIBAK, CEO

Dr. David Brown is a highly trained professional in several areas of alternative medicine. He earned a B.S. in medical biology from Oklahoma Christian University as well as a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Parker College of Chiropractic. When Dr. Brown had a personal experience with symptoms that baffled medical doctors, he became frustrated with the lack of results and turned to natural medicine. From that point on, natural medicine became his passion, and he went on to complete a three-year internship in Naturopathic Medicine. He also has extensive training in classical homeopathy, certification in Chiropractic Acupuncture, and a Diplomate in Applied Kinesiology. Dr. Brown has been in full-time clinical practice since 2001.

Today, he is Director of the North Dallas Alternative Medicine Center, which he founded in 2004. He and his wife, Angela, have four healthy and vivacious children, Ethan, Evan, Brinley, and Brayden, who have been treated with natural health care since birth.  Read more here about Dr. Brown and his family!

Kristen Barkley, President

Kristen is a happily married mother of four beautiful children, Joshua, Ashtyn, Everett, and Brooks. Like many other moms, she always hoped to maintain a balanced perspective in regards to the health of her family. In June 2007, when her infant son came down with a rare medical syndrome that led to a serious heart condition, she and her husband, John Paul, sought out Dr. Brown and his expertise. After six months of treatment along with a lot of prayer, Joshua was miraculously given a clean bill of health, and the whole family began to see Dr. Brown regularly.

It wasn’t long before it became clear to Kristen that many people, especially other mothers, could benefit from all Dr. Brown had to offer. It was his unique dietary guidelines plus his comprehensive treatment style of combining natural therapies that gave her the business idea for Marpé.

Kristen has a BBA in Business Marketing from the University of Houston and completed extensive undergrad coursework in the field of Nutrition. She is excited to be putting her education to use in an industry that she is passionate about where she can help others live a healthier and happier life.
