Women hold a celebrated role within each household, and for great reasons. A woman holds a family together with love, care and compassion. In these busy times, a woman often plays more than just one role – a mother, a friend, an employee and she is left with hardly any time to pay attention to her own health.
A woman’s health and wellbeing is generally more complex than that of a man. Her body goes through several changes over the years and even every month. While it is known that healthy lifestyle choice go a long way in reducing health risks, it is important to note that a woman needs to pay attention to her diet and physical regime in tune with her monthly cycles as well as these often lead to weakness and iron deficiency.
Women, just by nature, are more susceptible to certain health conditions like Anaemia and Osteoporosis. Additionally women also display different symptoms as compared to men in similar underlying conditions. For example, while men experience chest pressure during a heart attack, a woman may experience shortness of breath, pressure in the lower chest or extreme fatigue. Because of the nature of symptoms not being overtly visible with women, these “silent diseases” go by untreated.
It is vital that a woman understand her body’s needs as she ages gracefully. A woman’s prominent role within every family gives her the ability to transcend her health onto her family. By switching to healthier eating habits and including moderate exercise, a woman is able to care not just for herself but her family as well as these personal choices affect everyone else.
