Women’s Health

Women share many similar health challenges to men, but women can also have specific health issues that deserve special consideration.

In 1900, a woman’s life span was about 50 years. Now, well into a new millennium, average life expectancy for a woman in the UK is around 82 years, and continues to rise with a better quality of life throughout their years. It is essential that women become more aware of the specific health issues that may affect them and understand how to manage and maximise their overall wellbeing.

It is important that every woman has access to knowledge related to the spectrum of women’s health issues, not only about the female reproductive system but also about all aspects of female health including cancer awareness specific to women and expected life changes during the menopause.

Extensive research shows that eating a balanced diet including supplementing the diet with certain nutrients and regular exercise help considerably to reduce health risks and also prevent a number of conditions.

This month’s topic is suitable for women of all ages who want to improve their overall wellbeing and improve their knowledge and understanding of health issues that are be specific to women.
