Women's Health - Cannabis

Cannabis can be used for more than pain management.

Unfortunately, throughout history the research conducted on the relationship between cannabis and women's health and pain management is sparse and limited. 

Here's what we know so far!

Endometriosis can affect up to 10% of women.  It is an autoimmune condition that causes severe pain.

Insomnia, irritability, depression, painful bowel movements and infertility. Cells in the uterus move outside of the womb and implant on other pelvic structures causing tremendous inflammation. The pain can be debilitating. 

In the treatment of endometriosis cannabis may impact several levels of the pathogenesis of the disease. It may also offer relief to women suffering from dysmenorrhea or more viable alternative to oral contraceptives and NSAIDS. Dr. Guggenheim, who is an ND/NP and has a master's in nutrition, will also help you to go gluten and dairy free to eliminate dietary inflammation. We'll create an anti-inflammatory diet rich in Omegas, quercetin, anti-oxidants, high quality proteins and low in saturated fats, sugar, salt and caffeine. We offer the best nutraceutical recommendations from Xymogen. We can get you to sleep soundly with 10 mg of Xymogen's melatonin which has been studied in the endometriosis population.
