Meet your team of Newcastle Naturopaths


Cody believes the human body is really 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 to people with a passion to support clients toward their version of optimal wellness.

She has a special interest in helping people with autoimmune diseases such as MS, Crohns, Ulcerative Colitis and Lupus SLE. She has extensive experience treating complex health conditions such as lyme disease and mould toxicity. Cody has completed further studies in gut health and holds an Honours degree in Complementary Medicine. She is also fully qualified to address a multitude of health concerns.

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!

“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.”

“Sometimes it’s just a matter of learning simple things and applying them in daily life to improve health. I like to help you get back to enjoy everything life has to offer. Together we work towards making your health goals a reality.”

When she’s not consulting online from her Naturopathy clinic in Newcastle, Cody loves dreaming of her next travel adventure and playing frisbee with her energetic young son.


Cody studied at the Australasian College of Natural Therapies and holds advanced diplomas in naturopathy, western herbal medicine, homoeopathy and nutrition. She also has a Graduate Certificate in Evidence Based Complementary Medicine. She recently completed a Bachelor of  Medicines Management with Honours in Complementary Medicine. She has been a member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society since 2001, the largest natural therapy association in Australia.
