Jamie embraces her passion for iridology
BEING made redundant gave Jamie Warren a new vision for her future.
The Rockhampton mother of four moved on from her human resources career to something she had her eye on from her teenage years.
Jamie first heard of iridology while she was still at school in the late 90s.
She started studying it back then but let it go when life got in the way; buying a house, having children and working a "typical" job.
She later went back to university and studied for a business degree, eventually going to work in human resource management.
But when she was made redundant in June this year from the Salvation Army, through Australia-wide cutbacks, she again took up her studies in iridology.
"I just took it as an opportunity to study what I was really interested in," Jamie said.
It was also ideals gained while working at the Salvation Army for four years that inspired Jamie to follow her dreams.
This week was her first working at Holistic Health on Denham St in Rockhampton, something she can fit in around her family life.
Jamie plans to do further alternative therapy studies, including nutrition.
What is iridology?
Alternative therapy that claims to work through reading people's eyes
A photograph is taken of the eyes then decoded to look for inherited strengths and weaknesses; to identify organs that may be weaker, overactive or underactive.
Recommendations can then be given for diet, exercise, essential oils and areas that should be medically examined by a doctor.
There is currently no scientific evidence to show that iridology is effective.
Suitable for any age, it is non-intrusive.
