Founder Return to Health, Homeopathic Practitioner and Teacher.
Elzette Harper is a qualified Homeopathic Practitioner who holds a Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine. She practices on the Southern Gold Coast at her practice Return to Health. Elzette is a member of the International Institute of Complementary Therapists (IICT). Elzette specialises in working with complex conditions, and she offers amazing insight, strength and expertise for clients embarking on a healing journey. Her aim is to bring about lasting recovery and change. El finds great expression and joy as a Homeopath working with this energetic medicine. She is able to see people everyday experience significant healing and growth. El’s great ability to think laterally and to ‘connect the dots’ as well as her warm and caring nature, has made her an incredibly sought after homeopath both within Australia and globally.
Elzette is also a gifted teacher on both the client level and tutelage of students under the Diploma of Practical Modern Homeopathy.
Her product ranges Return to Health Medicinal and ElNat–ural Lifestyle are the result of seeking to help patients with everyday health and wellness. Her focus is to create products which help the modern person and families prevent some of the more complex conditions she often sees in clinical practice.
“In clinic I found myself thinking many times – if only my clients had been offered a natural way of empowering their own health and vitality, their symptoms may not have turned into chronic or complex conditions in the first place. It was that place of thinking that inspired both our educational and product arms of Return to Health.”

Jodie M. Russel-Smith
Advanced Reiki Practitioner, Student Homeopath
It was at age nineteen while in a satisfying career as a professional hairdresser that Jodie became interested, and more formally involved in, metaphysics, holistic therapies, and modern esotericism. Her attraction to alternative remedial modalities, along with a desire to help others, became more compelling after she had received the Attunement and completed both the Initiate and Advanced levels of traditional Reiki (which is purist, original, and of disciplic succession). For Jodie, Reiki revealed a whole new path of unique methods to optimal wellness and beckoned her forward. Reiki has a special place in Jodie’s heart.
Since that time and up to the present, Jodie has invested years studying many systems of knowledge, some of which include Applied Sciences of Naturopathy, Herbal Medicine, Counselling and Communications, Rebirthing/Breathwork, Metaphysics of Healing, Contemporary Shamanism, Wicca, Astrology, Tarot, Aura-Soma, Angelology, and Homeopathy. Since her first introduction to it, Homeopathy fascinated Jodie and still does to this day, and is why she is currently deepening her understanding of Homeopathy by studying a more scholarly application of the art and science of it. Throughout all her studies, Jodie has been blessed to learn from some of the best, erudite, and most notable teachers, professionals, and authors.
A little friendly disclosure from Jodie’s personal life is that she’s a gracious and welcoming Aquarian, a vegetarian, an excellent cook, virtuous, and a peace-lover who lives on Australia’s Gold Coast with her husband and their two beautiful daughters.
