While taking care of your family, your job or company and perhaps the rest of the world, did you ever ask yourself “Who is taking care of me?”
If you are one of those women who is doing laundry at midnight and then up at 6 a.m. to start another non-stop day, be aware that, if the pace of your life and the stress that accompanies it is not reduced, at some point your body will say “no more”. It will do this by being physically overwhelmed by all the abuse it’s taking, and letting disease take hold. The time to reevaluate what needs to be done is now. Learn to control the emotions that put you into a negative spiral and blind you to all the positive things in your life or simply say. “No, I can’t take that on.”
Women have traditionally been the gatekeepers for the health of their families. Natural medicine stresses the importance of maintaining wellness, and it offers gentle, safe and effective remedies that women can use to care for themselves and for those they love. Many natural medicine modalities provide good models for self-care and wellness. These include good nutrition, stress reduction and other habits that help prevent health problems – not just fix what goes wrong.
Health problems unique to women, such as menstrual problems, breast discomfort and hot flashes, can often be eased by natural methods.
Did you know that there are over 200 symptoms that are attributed to PMS? While a conventional Doctor may say that a women needs prozac, the Natural Health Practitioner can help evaluate the imbalances being experienced and address them through nutrition, exercise and vitamin and herbal supplements that won’t cause uncomfortable or dangerous side effects.
Natural health practices can help relieve or reverse an imbalance or illness before it becomes unmanageable.
