I am on a mission to build a tribe for women’s health and wellness.
Women’s health concerns start early, as soon as their reproductive system begins to prepare their bodies to carry a child in adolescence. The following decades become a literal cycle of hormonal ups and downs which have the potential to adversely affect a woman’s life. When this reality is considered along with the usual hazards of being human, health and wellness at any age can seem a bit overwhelming.
It doesn’t have to be. You can build a lifetime of health and wellness by making healthy lifestyle choices. Healthy lifestyle choices, combined with knowledge of your personal and family health history, allow you to prevent or offset negative health outcomes and enhance the positive.
Here are a few tips to get you started:
Eat well. Exercise. Stay hydrated with water and herbal beverages. These three alone can keep the body functioning healthily.
Try to keep your sugar exposure low. Simple sugars, candy, sweets and cane sugar, spike insulin levels which can eventually lead to insulin resistance, the precursor of type 2 diabetes.
Get your Vitamin D from the sun or supplements. Vitamin D is essential for bone health. It also seems to have a mood enhancing effect which can be beneficial for premenstrual syndrome sufferers.
Get enough sleep. The brain integrates the lessons of the day and the body repairs itself during your sleep cycle. Make time to sleep well; sleep quality matters as much if not more than how long you sleep.
Have fun. Laughter lowers blood pressure, decreases stress levels and releases endorphins.
Now all of this sounds great, right? But so many women don’t know where to start. I wanted to do something about it. Over the last several months, while we have all been staying in, I have been busy putting together a Path to Hormone Health Program.
I am in the process of putting the final touches on The Path to Hormone Health Program. I will be sharing more with you soon. This is the biggest program on women’s health I have ever put together. Stay tuned!
If you have not yet joined the Path to Health and Healing Facebook Group for women, what are you waiting for? I would love to get as many women in this group as possible. This is a great place to support each other and where I share helpful information and support on all things women’s health and wellness.
