"Well intentioned but seriously misguided advice is … capable of causing great harm and even death to vulnerable children," Judge Peter Berman said during sentencing.
"There is no doubt that she is a caring and well-meaning individual and that her intentions in providing advice to [the child's] mother were based on what she believed to be some connection between [his] eczema and the mother's diet.
"But once it became clearly apparent that there was a risk of harm to [the child] through the mother following her advice, it was a seriously criminal thing to do to ignore the effect of her advice on [the child's] wellbeing."
Bodnar’s defence team says the naturopath has vowed to never work with children again and deeply regrets her actions.
“She feels crushed, she has been punished," Lawyer Rick Mitry said of the social media backlash Bodnar has experienced since her arrest.
November 4 is the earliest date the disgraced naturopath could be released from prison.
