Women’s health & wellness, for me, is about empowering women so that they can celebrate and welcome every cycle & life stage. Women’s life stages are often marked by specific signs and symptoms, such as menstrual cramps, mood swings, hot flushes and weight gain.
” …The body can and must be healed through the mind, and the mind can and must be healed through the body.”

The pillars of wellness—Nutrition, Exercise & Stress management—allow women to be proactive about their health. For me it is about giving women the tools so that they are in control, and—perhaps more importantly—you feel heard. Something amazing happens when you are in this position – you feel empowered.
Women’s health and how does it look?
The way we all live our lives has changed dramatically over the last century. According to the Office of National Statistics, more women are now working than ever before. Alongside work you could also be playing mum, running a home, juggling balls & generally making sure that everyone that you care for is happy & healthy. Your life has probably never been so busy and stressful.
Your wellbeing can be affected and can have effects on your body if stress levels remain high for extended period, this can also include changes in hormone levels.
Women’s health and hormones
Hormones are essential for health but can also affect your mind and emotions. You can find yourself in a vicious circle; stress can lead to abnormal levels of hormones and changes in these hormones can leave you feeling more stressed.
We are all unique and you will therefore have your own way of dealing with the challenges of everyday life. Sometimes you might just feel that you need extra help. Instances where you may find that you need extra help could be PMS, or leading up to and beyond menopause. Or if you have a condition that can be exacerbated by stress such as infertility, endometriosis, PCOS, anxiety, IBS & migraines to name just a few.
So, what does the future of women’s health look like? It looks a lot like it does now—full of more empowered women, more empathetic doctors, and a lot of people who are ready to take control of their lives.
