When Jodi Campbell made the decision to visit a naturopath for her chronic back pain, she was amazed by the results.
The positive experience coupled with a passion to help others inspired Ms Campbell to pursue a career as a naturopath three-anda-half years ago.
In January this year, Ms Campbell opened Verdure Naturopathy after completing her Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy in Melbourne.
‘‘Naturopathy is about helping the body to get in balance to help itself,’’ Ms Campbell said.
‘‘It had a huge impact on me making changes to my lifestyle and diet.’’
Ms Campbell is looking forward to building her business and, with a nursing background, she prides herself on helping people and making a difference.
‘‘Most people kow how to get well, it’s about helping people along the way,’’ Ms Campbell said.
‘‘A lot of people don’t know about naturopathy and that it can help people with illnesses they would usually go to the doctor for.’’
Ms Campbell also sells weight and health management program Ultra Lite, to help educate people about healthy choices.
A big focus in her business is the use of essential oils, which inspired Ms Campbell to host an event on DIY natural cosmetics. Partnered with Kellie Elliot from Essential Botanics, attendees will learn about the use of essential oils and how naturopathy can assist in living with chronic health conditions.
The event is free and guests will enjoy a light supper and an opportunity to take home their own homemade cosmetic. The essential oil class will be held tomorrow from 7 pm.
Verdure Naturopathy is located at Shop 2/69 McLennan St, Mooroopna.
