In posts shared to the ‘Happy Hormones’ Facebook group, the three-time Olympian explained that Jaimi had struggled with her health for years after being diagnosed with a ‘chemical imbalance’ aged 15.

‘Sometimes, an individual, even adults like us, can disregard little red flags, thinking it doesn’t matter or won’t matter,’ the grieving mother wrote.

‘I know people want to know why and how [Jaimi died], but it’s not important at this time, or maybe ever, I don’t know.’ 

‘What I will say though is that Jeff diagnosed her with a chemical imbalance 18 years ago when we started to see some tiny red flags,’ she added, referring to Jeff Butterworth, a naturopath who specialises in hormonal disorders.

The former competitive swimmer begged other parents in the Facebook group not to ignore the warning signs like she had with Jaimi.

These ‘red flags’ included making bad food choices, being inactive, handling stressful situations poorly and spending time with ‘toxic people’.

‘Don’t wait until it’s too late to make changes… do it now while you can… starting right now,’ she wrote. 

‘Recognise the little red flags. Don’t live your life in turmoil, regret or guilt.’

Jaimi was laid to rest at a 100-person funeral on the Sunshine Coast, which was attended by her parents; her younger brother, model Jett Kenny; and her sister, Morgan.

Following Jaimi’s death, Lisa confessed that she didn’t know ‘what to do’ with herself while carrying so much grief.

She wrote on Instagram: ‘I don’t know what to do…’ alongside emojis depicting a sad face, a broken heart and an angel.
