I love this video my friend Tracey Chester edited! I love working with women in my medical practice, having been a midwife and herbalist since 1990. If you like this video, watch for a new educational series I'm launching with my friend Lindsey Ward. It will cover the endocannabinoid system and how cannabis impacts this system in women's health care across the lifespan!
Today I celebrated National Doctor’s day, but also the beginning of my new medical practice in the UCSD system! I’ll continue to see patients in private practice at Pain Trauma Institute while celebrating being the first ND to provide clinical care in the UCSD system! We can bill some insurances for ND care through the Centers for Integrative Health at UCSD.
Starting in February!
We are excited to announce that Integrative Health Grand Rounds begins this February with Dr. Melanie Fiorell discussing women's health and menopause. For more details and registration please see the link below.
I'm proud to report that I am going to be the first Naturopathic Doctor hired for clinical care in the UCSD system! In addition, the clinic was approved for cannabis consultations, so it is the first 'cannabis clinic' at a major medical institution! I'm very excited to be a part of delivering integrative, naturopathic primary care and functional medicine to the patients of UCSD. We will be able to bill insurance!! I'm looking forward to the New Year and bringing naturopathic care to the Center for Integrative Medicine at UCSD!
I’m excited to announce this open access article from a cannabis monograph published by the National Cancer Institute! This is from proceedings of the meeting that was a year ago. I’m proud to have worked with this group of authors in getting this information disseminated. You can see the entire monograph here: https://academic.oup.com/jncimono/issue/2021/58
I'm relocating my clinical practice! Time to see patients in person again, but I also have telehealth appointments available. I'm working at the Pain Trauma Institute in San Diego, where we work with the body, mind and spirit to help transform lives. If you have felt stuck and need some comprehensive services, this may be the place for you!
Resources — Pain Trauma Institute We help you find what works for you. There is no one size fits all approach to mental health or chronic pain management.
A brief overview of the science. Dose matters!
Name this part of the brain described by Sapolsky!
The Endocannabinoid System regulates many aspects of human health, including reproduction and the transition out of this phase of life. As these changes happen women are faced with a potential myriad of symptoms, with sleep disturbance affecting more than 60% of women both before and after menopause. Insomnia has been linked to increased stress, inflammation, cognitive dysfunction and sexual health. Join me with @eir_club tomorrow for a deep dive into this topic along with @helloagainproducts and Dominic Fontaine @sageintegrativewellness and give-always and discounts from @humboldtapothecary ! There is still time to register (link in bio).

What’s cannabis got to do with the disruptive, confusing, and, at times, isolating reproductive life cycle of women?
A LOT, and EIR Women’s Cannabis Club’s got you covered with the need-to-know information.

Camping and climbing with a bestie from medical school! Lifelong connections!! We’ve still got it- can still climb! So good for the soul to get out in nature and disconnect from technology. Necessary.
Medicinal Mushrooms are all over the place! Good for you in so many ways, and now also endocannabinoid toning for immune regulation. No surprise here.
For International Women’s Day, take a minute to listen to your heart. Heart disease is preventable, and heart attacks have some unique symptoms for women compared to men. Heart attack is preventable and it is important to know your risk! Exercise, diet, stress reduction and other Naturopathic medicine approaches can help reduce risk!
Have you heard of cannabigerol? It is a plant cannabinoid, unlike CBD or THC. I am offering a survey along with Dr. Ethan Russo and Carrie Cuttler to learn more about the use of CBG. If you have used CBG please consider participating!! @myriams_hemp @societyofcannabis
What matters. What would MLK do?
I volunteered yesterday at the UCSD vaccine site, and it was such an amazing experience. The organization and flow was seamless, I saw no anaphylaxis, only minor reactions, mostly vasovagal. I went back this morning and had my first dose, and then went for a two hour paddle -out! If you are on the fence about getting the vaccine, I’m happy to try to help demystify anything!!
Here is an article on the topic that may help: https://coronavirus.medium.com/decoding-modernas-covid-19-vaccine-ingredients-23ea87c5f234
"Is one of the most glaring omissions in public-health guidelines right now simply to tell people to get more sleep?" Quality sleep: Always a foundation of health! I've been telling patients for a while that "Melatonin is for more than just sleep!" Inflammation, low vitamin D, hormones, neurotransmitters, so much at play in insomnia. If you need help with your sleep, I can help!
The Mysterious Link Between COVID-19 and Sleep The coronavirus can cause insomnia and long-term changes in our nervous systems. But sleep could also be a key to ending the pandemic.
I hope you are not confused, as I am, by these new dietary guidelines🤔. Eliminating sugar and alcohol, always a good idea, and cutting back is also wise. What’s up with ignoring scientific reports?
New U.S. Dietary Guidelines Reject Recommendation to Cut Sugar, Alcohol Intake Limit A scientific advisory committee had advised lower limits on sugar and alcohol, citing health risks.
Happy Solstice to all! May we all envision a brighter future!

The Change can bring on psychic and physiologic shifts at ‘transition’ time! Women have always sought solace with plants. No surprise that cannabis is still an ally!
Women seeking relief from peri-menopause and menopausal symptoms may receive benefit from cannabis! There are a number of different symptoms that can be addressed using this safe and non-toxic botanical medicine. I've cared for women across the lifespan, first as a midwife and now as a ND, and have had women of all ages report back on benefits received, from enhancing libido, facilitating, sleep, helping with mood regulation and anxiety as well as taming hot flashes! Thanks to Jennifer Clopton for interviewing me for the article.
More Women Trying Pot to Manage Menopause THC helps lower body temperature, which can help with hot flashes. Pot’s mellowing effects may help settle your mood and improve sleep, but everyone’s reaction may differ.
