Hello! Thanks for stopping by! I’m Chae, qualified Naturopath & founder of The Wellness Emporium – a space (both online and in clinic) that I have created to educate, inspire and empower others on their own health & wellness journey. As a qualified naturopath I am a proud member of the Australian Natural Therapists Association (ANTA) and have done extensive research in the areas of gut health and the microbiome.
Prior to my naturopathic studies, I worked as a teacher, which allowed me to travel the world. I worked extensively overseas and also in the education sector on the Gold Coast. However, I haven’t always been the bright & bubbly health advocate I am today. In my early childhood I was in and out of hospital with gut issues and at the age of 10 I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. At the time of diagnosis my whole bowel was inflamed and ulcerated and was put on extremely heavy medication, with talks of removing part of my bowel.
