About Liesel St Arnaud BEd.CNP
Hello, My name is Liesel, I am a teacher and Holistic Nutritionist living in Vancouver BC with my husband, three children and our miniature dachshund. I taught at elementary school in South Africa until the birth of my second child. I suspect it was around this time that I developed Hashimoto's Disease - an autoimmune disease of the thyroid - and for a number of years my condition went undiagnosed, which was a very depressing and confusing time.
Eventually, through pure tenacity and self-advocacy, I finally managed to get a diagnosis!
As they say, knowledge is power - which is never more true then when it pertains to your health. I found out everything I could about autoimmunity and became fascinated by the clear connection between the gut, the immune system and inflammatory conditions. I used nutrition and lifestyle modifications to drastically reduce my symptoms and slowly but surely... I found myself again.
I became an Holistic Nutritionist because I want to share my knowledge with you. I want to show you how nutrition, lifestyle & mindset can make life-long positive changes to your health.
"With my help & your commitment, the Narrative Health approach will change how you live with chronic conditions."
