Natural Strategies for Autoimmunity and Chronic Inflammation with Albuquerque Herbalism

One in five Americans are now estimated to have some kind of autoimmune disease, with over 40% of these thyroid disorders. From psoriasis to lupus, rheumatoid arthritis to Type I diabetes, more autoimmune diseases emerge every year, and it has become one of the top ten leading causes of death in all females under the age of 64. Yet many remain unaware of what could be causing their vague and varied symptoms, and may even be misdiagnosed with a mental health problem. Even if receiving a correct diagnosis, there is little treatment available in the allopathic medical world. The good news is that there is so much that can be done to prevent, treat or even potentially put autoimmune conditions into remission! Join us to explore the many plant- and nutrient-centered strategies available for self-treatment, with a special focus on thyroid disorders.

Fall Equinox Plant Ally Meditation in the Bosque

Join Yerba Mansa Project Administrative Director, Angie True, for an enchanted evening meditation in the Bosque on the cusp of the Fall Equinox. The changing seasons are key points in the cycle of life in nature. Within this cycle, many ancient cultures perceived powerful messages for humanity. Consciously linking our awareness to nature’s cycles can deepen our understanding of our own personal cycles as well. Have you ever wished to develop a closer relationship with a local plant ally? After relaxing into the gentle wildishness of our restoration site, we’ll journey together on a guided meditation designed to open a space through which your seasonal plant ally may come forward, bearing harvest-time messages. Adults and older teens only, please.

Date: September 21, 2019, 6:30 – 7:30 pm

Location: Bosque restoration site, Tingley Drive, south of Central

Cost: Suggested donation $25 to $75 per person. This is a fundraising event, the proceeds of which will allow for the Yerba Mansa Project to continue our restoration work and to continue to provide our many free programs and events for school classrooms and the community. Space is very limited!
