Women are decision makers about health- from what to buy at the grocery store, to what goes no the dinner table, to what supplements the family takes to ensure adquate nutrition.
As moms, wives, daughters and sisters, too often, as women are so focused on being nurturers and caretakers for friends and family that they neglect their own health!
Women are inherently different from men- the physical, physiological as well as hormonal differences results in distinct nutritional needs for men and women. As a result certain health conditions disproportionately impact women. Forexample, 75% of autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes and others occur in women. Heart disease kills more women than men. Women under the age of 50 are twice as likely to have a fatal heart attack than men. Women even metabolises certain drugs differently.
The latest scientific discoveries have reinforced some of the existing knowledge about women's health, brought new insights and opened new doors to maximise optimal wellness for the body and mind. It is up to us to use this knowledge to enhance our health.
So, take charge! Take control of you and your family's wellness and spread the word about health and nutrition. We can all help create a healthier world for ourselves and our families to thrive.
