Endo & Cannabis Products Workshop

Untitled-1 copy

Dr. Rosemarie Flores will be speaking with the gals of Bloomin’ Uterus on Sunday, December 3, 2017, about managing Endometriosis pain and symptoms with cannabis products.  Not only is Dr. Flores a chiropractor, but she is certified by the Medical Cannabis Institute.  She has been able to help many patients get off opiates, sleeping meds, and many other medicines.

Come join us!  Seating is limited, so please RSVP for yourself (and anyone you’re bringing) by emailing me at lisa@bloominuterus.com.

I know many of you have had questions about cannabis at some of our prior meetings, so now’s your chance to ask!  Can’t come?  Feel free to email Dr. Flores here with your questions.  She’ll do her best to respond.

Dr. Flores (aka “Dr. Rosebudz”) will be explaining the medicinal benefits of CBD  and other cannabinoid blends including THC and how it works in the body.  She will cover the difference between CBD only which comes from industrial Hemp and CBD that comes from a Cannabis plant.  And she will also be going over Dosing, which is very important since there is no set dosing for patients.

Cost Per Person: FREE (I will always strive for freebies for my EndoSisters!)

Date: Saturday, December 3, 2017

Time: The lecture will begin promptly at 12:45pm.  You may show up as early as 12:30 (but I may put you to work setting up tables and chairs).  It will be concluded by 1:45pm.

Location: Mission Valley Library (in their Community Room); 2123 Fenton Pkwy, San Diego, CA 92108

Again, please RSVP for yourself (and anyone you’re bringing) by emailing me at lisa@bloominuterus.com.

**A huge thank you to one of our local EndoSisters (you know who you are) for reaching out to Dr. Flores to present this workshop**

#MakeItVisible Campaign!


For the month of October, Healthline is hosting an awareness campaign of ALL invisible illnesses and they’d like OUR help!

Do YOU have an invisible illness?  Why not participate? There are two weeks left in October. 🙂  Let’s inundate the internet!

WhyTo educate and raise awareness that not all illnesses are inherently visible and to raise financial support for the U.S. Pain Foundation in support of all invisible illnesses.

WhenThis campaign was launched on October 1 and will continue through October 31, 2017.

What: Share an image on Social Media that makes your condition visible with the hashtag #MakeItVisible. For every #MakeItVisible submission Healthline is donating $1 to the U.S. Pain Foundation until we reach our $5,000 goal. 

Who: You! With your support, Healthline will be able to bring more communities in to unite and honor all invisible illness communities in order to break the stigma that one has to “look sick” to be living with a condition.

Free Endo Webinar!


Our friends at the Endometriosis Family Support Group are at it again! On October 18, 2017, at 7pm (PST), they’ll be hosting a Webinar with Paige Gibbons (from the Uterus & Duderus Podcasts).  She’ll be covering how you (yes YOU) can talk to others about Endometriosis.
