Women have special health needs that change with age. At Fertile Ground Health Group, our Practitioners are experienced in helping women to improve and manage their health through every stage of the lifecycle. A woman experiences significant phases of hormonal change from adolescence, through pregnancy and motherhood and into menopause and older age. These changes influence not only her menstrual cycle, but her general health as well and may herald changes in nutritional needs, physical ability and susceptibility to illness or disease.
Young women have significantly different nutritional needs and may experience quite different symptoms to a woman in her thirties or fifties. Ensuring an adolescent’s nutritional needs are met and hormonal balance is optimised helps with problems she may be experiencing including period pain, skin, weight or mood changes and ensure healthy bones for later in life.
A woman in her twenties or thirties may need help with stabilising hormones, optimising fertility and preparing for pregnancy. Issues she has struggled with for a long time may need attention, including period pain, weight issues, changing diet and nutritional needs or emotional problems. It is also a time when women become more aware of hereditary factors that could potentially affect their health in later life (or their children’s health) including bone density, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity. Addressing the lifestyle factors that contribute to these conditions is a step toward greater longevity and better quality of life now and in older age.
Natural medicine is also appropriate for older women. Menopause signals a new phase of changes for women and any symptoms can be successfully managed for many women using natural remedies. Women may also start to “feel their age” with the beginning of niggling problems that may worsen as they age if left untreated. Arthritis, fitness, energy, emotional stability, memory / concentration and weight changes are common areas of change among older women and can be supported with the help of an experienced natural medicine practitioner.
