Cody Kennedy believes the human body is smart. Smart enough to heal itself with just a little help. As principal Newcastle naturopath at the national award winning clinic, CK Health, she offers this help using her extensive knowledge of natural medicine and a passion to support clients toward their version of optimal wellness.
Cody has been working in the natural health industry for over 19 years. She understands the hurdles and challenges people with health problems face. Cody has been personally touched by Lupus (SLE) because her husband has the disease. Her passion to help people with autoimmune diseases was initially sparked as a direct result of travelling this health journey with him.
Cody believes that you must first address the cause of the health problem to then achieve ‘Better Health’. After this, it’s a matter of combining the right blend of nutrition, lifestyle modifications and supplements. All of these things together create a better environment for the body to function and repair.
Cody has recently completed an Honours Degree in Complimentary Medicines Management and Is always eager to learn. Her keen interest in research has awarded her a Graduate Diploma in Evidence Based Medicine. Everything Cody recommends has been researched, tested and researched again!
When she’s not consulting in her Naturopathy clinic in Newcastle, Cody loves dreaming of her next travel adventure and playing frisbee with her energetic six-year-old son.
I like to work in such a way that your body is given the best chance to heal itself. Health is a combination of past medical history, lifestyle, genetics, environment and constitutional limitations. I consider all of these things when determining your treatment plan.
By using a combination of nutrition, natural medicine, lifestyle counselling, functional testing, herbal medicine and naturopathy, I achieve the best results. Sometimes it’s just a matter of learning simple principles and applying them consistently in daily life to improve health. With the use of the latest scientific research and proven methods I help you to enjoy everything life has to offer. I always begin by taking a full case history and discuss with you both your short term and long term goals. Together we work towards making them a reality.
I studied at the Australasian College of Natural Therapies and hold advanced diplomas in naturopathy, western herbal medicine, homoeopathy and nutrition. I also have a Graduate Certificate in Evidence Based Complementary Medicine. I recently completed a Bachelor of Medicines Management with Honours in Complementary Medicine. And I have been a member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society since 2001. This is the largest natural therapy association in Australia.
