Healthy Eating for Life for Women
By Kristine Kieswer
Until now, to battle headaches, arthritis, or menstrual cramps, many women have needed fistfuls of over-the-counter remedies. Menopause has meant lifelong dependence on prescription hormones. Preventing cancer has meant yearly mammograms, and precious little else. These approaches are certainly useful, but they are also expensive, riddled with side effects, and, far too often, simply inadequate.
Through simple diet changes, headaches can become a thing of the past. Menopausal symptoms may never even start. And women can gain new power over the most common and problematic forms of cancer. Everything from improving fertility to erasing the signs of aging to managing osteoporosis, arthritis, and urinary tract infections, has been subjected to new methods of research and can now be dealt with more easily than ever. The answer, more often than not, lies in nourishing the body in new and healthy ways. It's a prescription women will be happy to fill.
