Camille Knowles has conquered her lifelong battle with eczema through healthy and nutritious food choices. Here, she shares her story and reveals how her new book, achieved with the help of CNM (College of Naturopathic Medicine), can help others live a life beyond eczema.
I was diagnosed with the chronic skin condition at six-years-old. I led a life where I would be constantly covering up my skin, hiding away and avoiding social occasions. The condition became so debilitating that I was hospitalised and told that there was nothing anyone could do to cure my eczema. So, I turned to my diet and attempted to manage my skin through food and drink intake. However, this obsession surrounding food took its toll on my health and instead of healing my skin, I developed a huge fear of food.
Fortunately, CNM ignited my passion for all things natural and I trained to become a Natural Chef. I quickly discovered that eating well and nourishing my skin from the inside, as well as the outside, was a key principle in reducing my eczema symptoms. The course not only helped me fall back in love with food, but the expertise and knowledge I gained allowed me to design recipes, which could benefit others too.
‘The Beauty of Eating Well‘ by Camille Knowles™ is a recipe book that puts the freedom and fun back into food but with a huge focus on nutritional value. The dishes are all designed to make skin glow, not just for those with eczema, but for anyone who wishes to transform dull, sensitive and dry skin.
I am so grateful to CNM. Not only has it helped me become an eczema warrior, but the courses have helped me build a thriving business which truly helps others apply a holistic approach to living a life beyond eczema.
