So who is Emma Caller aka Emma the Naturopath?
I remember sitting on the floor in a circle in grade one at Sandy Beach Primary and being asked what we wanted to be when we grew up. Popular answers included ‘fireman’ and ‘princess’, but when it came to my turn, I told the class that I wanted to be a naturopath.
Fast forward 18 years to 2009…
I graduated from the Australian College of Natural Medicine with a Bachelor of Health Science majoring in Nutritional Medicine and an Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy. Which is just a fancy way of saying I’m a naturopath and nutritionist!
The next chapter
One week after my last exam I bought my family’s health food shop Essential Health which is a beacon of fresh air amongst all the franchises in town. When I’m doing consults on a Thursday and Friday, Vanessa Vidler, is my wonderful naturopath who takes over the show.
Eczema? Acne? Let me at it!
I have a consultation room inside the shop called The Essential Health Clinic where I help people with all sorts health issues but I looooove dermatology: acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, autoimmune skin conditions, etc.
Why am I different?
I’m not your run of the mill naturopath. I don’t over prescribe supplements or put people on restrictive diets. I love the Hippocrates quote “Let your food be your medicine” so I try to encourage people to get their nutrients out of their diet. I want to help people take health out of the “too hard” basket by making it simple and fun. Wellbeing is about getting back to basics, which means a balanced diet and also a balanced lifestyle that brings you happiness.
What is the best thing about your job?
