Milenio Jalisco

Last week some of our team was down in Guadalajara, Mexico for its first ever conference on medical cannabis. Our Executive Director, Heather Jackson, presented the preliminary data from a study we are doing with Johns Hopkins University on the use of medicinal cannabis for different chronic conditions. She left such an impact there that the local newspaper Milenio Jalisco did a full two-page feature on her! Click here to read more.

Mugs of RoC- Kelly, Care Specialist

Kelly is one of our newest Care Specialists here at RoC. She's only been here a month, but she jumped in with both legs and is totally RoC'n it!! Kelly is awesome. We knew her before she started, she is married to one of our favorite chiropractors, Dr. Gengler of Chiroworks (shameless plug, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you need a chiro in the Colorado Springs area, he has PLENTY of experience with kiddos with special needs, and he is my assumed holistic health coach LOL!), so of course we knew we'd love her. What we didn't know is that she has a BA in German AND Psychology, is a licensed massage therapist, taught at a community college and has worked extensively in the medical field... but as she says, she's a mom first and foremost! <3 She is smart as whip, nothing gets past this lady, and she's not afraid to share her mind and thoughts, making her a wonderful team member.

Without further delay, please meet Kelly Gengler!
Nicole: "Say "Hi," Kelly!"


CannabiSalud 2017 Recap

Realm of Caring made it’s way well across the Mexican border and into Guadalajara, June 2nd and 3rd. Tempting were the mariachis, and the margaritas, however, it was the first Latin American symposium on medical cannabis for medical professionals that eventually got us on a plane heading South to CannabiSalud 2017.


Autism One 2017 Recap

Autism One is an International conference in which vanguard researchers, novelty ideas and products geared toward those with autism hit the spotlight. The RoC had the privilege not only of having a booth but also of sitting on a panel with experts and doctors and furthermore of presenting some of the preliminary results of our Observational Research Registry (ORR) with Johns Hopkins University (JHU).


Client Spotlight: Eli

Our son, Eli, was diagnosed with epilepsy at age 5. He is currently 15 years old. He has had fine motor and developmental delays since he was born. He never had complete seizure control. When he approached adolescence, his seizures increased dramatically to at least one per week. We had difficulty controlling his seizures and his behavior became more and more erratic with the increased anti- seizure medications and frequent seizures. After more testing, we found out last year that he has a genetic disorder, which was helpful to explain many of the symptoms he has had, but upsetting because we knew the seizures would not be outgrown.


Client Spotlight: Devin

To many, this is just a kid on a bike. Simple, right?

I can remember a boy who used to be terrified to leave the house, who couldn't go to the bathroom by himself, had fits of rage and had so many seizures every day that he couldn't finish a sentence. I can remember the day he decided to get on a swing. It was just one week after we started to use CBD. It was like meeting our kid for the first time. Just playing a game or drawing a straight line at 7 yrs old was impossible. It devastates parents and families as well...deeply.
