We are very fortunate to be living in an age where the medical community recognizes the unique needs of women. Women’s health issues are being addressed more often and there are some wonderful options available to women these days. Brant Arts provides support to women and their unique medical needs through their women’s health clinic.
Some of the common health concerns of women include menopause, depression, osteoporosis and heart disease. Brant Arts can offer women the support they need to address these common issues.
Menopause and Help
This can be a challenging time in a women’s life and having the support of a Women’s Health Clinic can make all the difference. There are so many options available to women, from natural remedies to hormone treatments, that it can be difficult to sort out the ones best for you. The health clinic can provide you with the information you need to help you make an informed choice that is best for your life and lifestyle.
Symptoms of depression are among the most common medical problems seen by health professionals. It is estimated that feelings of depression will affect about one-third of all Canadian adults in their lifetime. Women are twice as likely as men to experience feelings of depression. Hormonal changes can sometimes have an impact on the likelihood of experiencing depression. Life changes such as the birth of a baby and the onset of menopause can play a role in these hormonal changes. The Women’s Health Clinic can help you during these difficult times.
Osteoporosis can affect women at any time in their lives. There are many ways you can prevent or slow down the progress of this disease. Caused by a lack of bone strength, there are risk factors which can lead to osteoporosis. Your age, gender and body type are factors which can determine your risk. Women are more likely than men to develop osteoporosis. Family history and lifestyle can also determine your risk. The Women’s Health Clinic at Brant Arts can help you identify your risk factors and help you with choosing the right supplements for your health.
Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in women. More women than men die from strokes every year. Heart disease occurs differently in women than in men. Researchers are trying to understand these differences to help find the best ways to prevent, diagnose and treat women who have heart disease. Risk factors include smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, lack of exercise and family history. But women of all ages can reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke. The Women’s Health Clinic is skilled at working with you and your unique needs to help you develop a treatment plan that will work with you and your lifestyle.
