Being a woman comes with its own share of woman-specific health challenges be it anaemia, cardiac, PCOS - hormonal, reproductive, maternal, pregnancy or lactation related issues and many types of cancers specific to women. The physiological and psychological traits of a woman need better understanding from a genetic perspective to have result-oriented targeted therapies and non-medical wellness solutions for her holistic physical and emotional well-being.
Also, studies show that when a woman eats healthy, everyone in her household is more likely to eat healthy. No wonder, an enlightened healthy woman can completely transform the entire family being in-charge of the wellness clinic at home - the kitchen.
The food and drink choices you make every day affect your health now and later in life. Choosing healthy foods and drinks more often can help prevent or manage many health problems that affect women.
Women, like men, must enjoy a variety of healthful foods from all of the foods groups, including whole grains, fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, low-fat or fat-free dairy and lean protein. But women have special nutrient needs during each stage of her life. Special foods may be required especially during the reproductive years that may include iron-rich foods, Folate (and folic acid), daily calcium and Vitamin requirements.
Physical activity is an important part of a woman's health. Regular physical activity helps with muscle strength, balance, flexibility and stress management. Since women typically have less muscle, more body fat and are smaller than men, they need fewer calories to maintain a healthy body weight and activity level. Women who are more physically active may require more calories.
