Bellingham HSP Support Group: A free monthly meet-up for Bellingham-area highly sensitive people (HSPs), the last Thursday of each month, from 6:00-7:30pm, starting February 28, 2019. Designed to be a space for HSPs to gather, develop community, grow your HSP awareness and learn tools to help thrive in our overstimulating world. All who consider themselves sensitive are welcome, whether you're new to understanding sensitivity or have been learning about it for years. Bring a journal if you like, and paper will be provided for reflection time. Hosted by Dr. Julia Hipp, ND & HSP at Achillea Natural Medicine, 519 E. Magnolia Street. No RSVP required. For more information, email email@example.com. To learn more about the high sensitivity trait, visit www.hsperson.com. (Parking information: Free street parking available.)
For all parents, partners, friends, co-workers, bosses, relatives, neighbors with highly sensitive people in your lives but who do not identify as “highly sensitive” themselves: While this support group is for those who are highly sensitive, we appreciate & respect that you are open to learning more about your HSP loved ones. Check out the Highly Sensitive page for some ideas for learning tools.
IBS Awareness Month: April is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Awareness Month! IBS is my absolute favorite condition to help patients with. Most patients come in having all other possibilities ruled out and not being given much advice about what to do about their symptoms. No one wants to live with constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, and/or abdominal pain for the rest of their lives. Because my goal is to find underlying causes, to me, IBS is not a final diagnosis. I often find other contributing factors, such as food intolerances or sensitivities, bacterial or fungal overgrowth, and stress or nervous system imbalance, just to name a few! Every New Patient visit already comes with a free Food Intolerance Evaluation, and because I love helping people achieve a healthy gut, for the month of April, I’m throwing in a free Craniosacral or Constitutional Hydrotherapy visit! Both are relaxing treatments that can be used to help heal the digestion. See the Services page for more information on each. Book a New Patient naturopathic care visit for any digestive complaint during the month of April to receive this offer! You must call or email to schedule your initial visit by April 30, 2019 @ 5pm. Free bonus treatment to be discussed & scheduled at your initial visit. Contact us here.
