Women and men have many of the same health problems, but these can affect women differently. Women's health 'issues' often surround hormone balancing and reproductive issues, but there is more to it than that!
Precisely because of our different anatomies, disease processes may manifest differently in women - for example, heart disease may present later in life and have different symptoms in women, than in men. Some diseases are more common in women, such as osteoarthritis, migraines, and depression. Whereas other conditions, such as pregnancy and menopause, are specific to women.

Part of being healthy is understanding risk factors; recognising that these can be managed to prevent illness and disease. Preventative treatments are highly beneficial, including herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, and physical therapies such as acupuncture and massage. Simple diet and lifestyle measures will also have a huge impact on overall health and wellbeing. For existing conditions, specific treatment options are important - both to reduce symptoms and address underlying causes.
