Women’s Health Tips

Unlike men, women have evolving nutritional requirements throughout their lifetime. In addition to maintaining a healthy and balanced diet, women may require extra nutrients in different stages of their life. A young woman in her reproductive years should be taking adequate amounts of iron to replace iron loss to menstruation. A pregnant woman should be taking adequate amounts of Folic acid and Iron to support the pregnant mother and the developing fetus. Postmenopausal women might require higher amounts of calcium and Vitamin D to prevent osteoporosis. Let’s recap!

1. Keep a balanced and active lifestyle by ensuring sufficient workout (exercise, tai-chi, yoga, brisk-walking, running, gardening) throughout the day.
2. Get yourself checked regularly to ensure your body has sufficient nutrition and is in good shape. Compensate the insufficiency with supplements and advised food intake.
3. As it is easier for women to put on weight especially after pregnancy, practice a healthy diet all the time. Limit yourself to indulgences once a week.
4. Be sensitive towards any sort of physical or emotional changes in your body. If unsure, come to us for advice. 5. Get enough rest and keep yourself hydrated throughout the day.
6. Lastly, smile and be positive! There’s nothing better than being positive and happy around people who matters most.
