As with men, women can face some pretty unique health concerns. Here at the Daily Health you’ve got the perfect helper when facing the kind of problems that most women will encounter at some stage of their lives, including menopause, breast cancer, cervical cancer and hormonal imbalances.
The menopause is a natural change in a women’s life. It signals the end of periods and therefore the end of fertility as egg production stops. It tends to be a gradual process, happening over a period of years. The symptoms of the menopause, hot flushes, night sweats and mood changes, often occur due to a dip in the production of oestrogen, the female sex hormone. Don’t suffer these symptoms in silence; learn how you can counteract menopausal changes with safe, natural alternatives.
Commonly thought of as a ‘female’ cancer, breast cancer can also affect men too, although it is much more common in women. One in 8 women in the UK will develop breast cancer at some stage in their life, making it the most common cancer in the UK, behind non-melanoma skin cancers. Cervical cancer often affects younger women, the majority under the age of 45. Almost all cases are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), which is spread through any type of sexual contact. Although important to try and halt the spread of the disease, it’s important to understand the potential side effects of any vaccination. Uncover some of the cancer-fighting foods that could help ward off breast cancer and some of the dark secrets of the HPV-vaccine.
The Daily Health will arm you with all the information you need to understand – and even delay or combat – some of the most distressing health concerns faced by women, without the need to take harmful drugs or undergo invasive procedures like mammograms. Find answers on how to help protect against breast cancer, cope with menopause and dealing with female libido problems.
If you’ve not thought about it yet, now is the time to focus on these women’s health issues so that you can stay fit and healthy (on all levels) well into your old age.
