Women and Men: Health Issues and Differences

While women and men have many similarities, there are vastly different health issues that can affect both women and men in dissimilar ways. The following is a list of common health issues affecting women:

  • Heart disease
  • Menopausal-related issues
  • Osteoporosis
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Yeast infections
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Auto-Immune disorders

Additionally, women are twice as likely to suffer from anxiety and depressive symptoms as men.

Below is a list of our quality supplements that can help improve a woman’s overall health.

Nutritional/Herbal Menopausal Support

A natural part of life, menopause can begin at different stages, depending on a woman’s individual makeup. Medically menopause is defined as one year without a menstrual cycle; however, women can begin to have symptoms two to eight years prior to this actual point. Also, almost 600,000 women each year have hysterectomies that lead to surgical menopause.  Natural or surgical menopause results in a decrease in sex hormones, such as:

  • Estrogen: Hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, loss of hair, mental fogginess, bone loss
  • Progesterone: Mood swings, irritability, anxiety, fluid retention, insomnia, weight gain (hips and thighs), depression, bone loss, fibrocystic breast, PMS, breast tenderness
  • Testosterone: Fatigue, vaginal dryness, lack of concentration, bone loss, decreased sex drive
  • DHEA: sense of well being, stress balance, weight loss, and sex drive

While customized hormone replacement therapy using hormones identical to the hormones found in your body is considered the most effective way to manage menopausal symptoms, many women do not want or cannot use this method. One Wellness Place can provide nutritional / herbal support that can help women obtain relief from their menopausal symptoms.
