• Women’s Health

  • A woman's life is one of change: puberty, menstruation, pregnancy and labour, breast feeding and motherhood, perimenopause and menopause. During these stages of life, a woman's state of health is influenced greatly by her hormonal balance.

    In past societies, each phase of a woman's life was celebrated by her whole tribe who shared in the events. In today's Western society, the aging celebration has been replaced with a continuum of griping and grumbling. Who wants to look forward to feeling awful; hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, depression, loss of libido, headaches and irregular menses any of which may plague a woman for years.

    A change of life cannot be avoided but how a woman experiences these changes can be influenced by knowing what her body is telling her and how to interpret the information.
