Daily Wellness Routine: Jodi Duval, Functional Naturopath & Owner @ Revital Health.

First up, briefly tell us a bit about yourself and what you do!

I’m a lover of life, of connection, having fun and experiencing the world, I live with passion for health and helping others become optimal. I created Revital Health, a Functional Naturopathy Health Optimisation Clinic with the purpose of empowering and supporting transformation with cutting edge information, treatments and technologies, combining traditional treatments and knowledge to give clients the best outcomes. I have over a decade of clinical experience, I’m the CEO of HOMeHOPe Australia, lecturer at Endeavour College of Natural Health, and podcast host. I’m a mum of two beautiful kids and a spoodle and I take being the best example I can for them very seriously.

What time do you wake up most days and how many hours of sleep do you aim for?

I’m a big advocate of routine, and I love sleep, I wake up most days around 6:30am aiming for 7-8 hours sleep, I’m up and outside straight away to see the sun in my eyes and bare feet on the grass. The day starts with setting yourself up for the best sleep and this is what sets up the production of melatonin for the night.

What’s your morning routine to set you up for a great day?

Getting up at the same time and seeing the sun, and a small 5 min stretch and meditation for clarity of mind is one of the best things to set me up for my day. I also have a very large glass of filtered water from my Aqua Tru filter with celtic sea salt as soon as I’m awake. I’m a mum of 2 young kids so my morning is busy preparing and organising.. its go from the time I come back inside, these small priorities are a must to keep me grounded.

Describe a typical day of eating for you.

Mornings I usually do intermittent fasting until 12-1pm, I have organic coffee with butter in the morning which sees me though most of the morning. My eating revolves around my cycle, so in my luteal phase if I’m hungry for breakfast I will eat.

Lunch normally looks like a keto Locako bar on the run until I get home for a paleo bread loaded toast with butter, avocado, sprouts or nut butter, In summer or warmer weather I go for a super smoothie with collagen, berries, coconut yogurt avocado, super greens plus lots more. Then for dinner I have a large variety of vegetables, meats, fish, salads, homemade pizza’s, homemade burgers… the list goes on. Dessert is always a few pieces of cacao. I will always finish eating before 630-7pm (unless out with family and friends) to set me up for an optimal sleep and fasting.

Tell us about your daily beauty routine! What are your non-negotiables for looking and feeling your best?

I love looking after my skin. I have used Rationale for over 4 years now and love the way it makes my skin glow. I use the 6 step program. I also do at home needling every few weeks. Plus facials every few months. Hydration through water consumption and minerals daily is another non negotiable for me.

Do you take any supplements, vitamins or special wellness elixirs? If so, we’d love to know!

As you can imagine this list is extensive..I compound personalised nutraceuticals and herbal medicines for my clients and myself. This is based off comprehensive metabolite testing and life circumstances. At the moment, I am supplementing with NAC, vitamin C, omega 3, zinc carnosine, quercetin, ALA, glutamine, Theanine, Magnesium threonatea and Iron Bisglycinate. I also take a herbal compound with Rhodiola, Withania, Licorice, Lions Mane, Gingko and Bacopa, this changes regularly.

Do you have an evening wind-down ritual?

My favourite wind down starts with turning on red and orange lamps in my house to minimise blue light and maximising melatonin. I love having a bath and and listening to music. I also love reading before bed then I’m usually in bed around 930pm if I’m not working or marking ☺

What are your top 3 wellness non-negotiables?

1. Exercise / Movement / Infrared Sauna
2. Fun, laughing, connection and passion
3. Nature and nourishment
