OLEAN — Those who want relief from allergies the natural way are invited to attend the Natural Therapies for Allergies program at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Boundless Connections business at 120 N. Union St.
The program, coordinated by Anna Bush, is free and open to the public and will include presentations by several professionals from the community.
“There are a lot of things that people can do to prevent, eliminate or reduce allergies in a natural way,” Bush said. “I also want people to know there are a lot of natural practitioners around here who can help them in their efforts to be more informed about their bodies and choices.”
Bush said the program will explore the cause of allergies, what effect they have on the immune system and how allergies are related to stress.
“They can ask a few of the practitioners I know” for advice on these topics, Bush continued.
“We’ll try to do other topics in the spring such as natural therapies for pain and natural therapies for sleep.”
Bush said she believes the current topic is relevant as this year’s allergy season has had high pollen counts and have likely affected many area residents.
“It is good to understand what allergies are and what causes them,” Bush continued. “That gives you an idea of what it is if you’re trying to get to the root of it and get the big picture.”
Bush, of Positive Moves Consulting, will provide a presentation on whole health education/coaching and hypnotherapy for allergies.
Additional presentations and information will by the following individuals.
• Christina Lopez, of Boundless Connections, will speak about how technology can be used to monitor and manage allergies.
• Lydia Hawley, of Tissue Health Therapies and Thrive Gluten-Free Treats & Juicery, will talk about how nutrition can boost the body and reduce inflammation.
• Babi Delaney, of Delaney Chiropractic-NAET, will speak about nambudripad allergy elimination technique.
“There will be something for everyone,” Bush concluded.
