Allergies and Asthma: An Ayurvedic Approach
June 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Allergies are the body’s response to toxins that a weakened immune system cannot handle. Seasonal allergies (external) and/or food allergies (internal) result when foreign elements invade the body and cannot be eradicated. Asthma is an allergic reaction to certain triggers that aggravate and inflame the lung tissue and can become systemic over time. Keeping the body in balance, and the immune system strong, can prevent allergies from taking hold.
Come and discover:
– Why certain “body types” are more prone to allergies
– The role of metabolism in allergic responses
– The effect of vaccinations on the body
– Techniques to balance and strengthen the immune system
