Delving into the article further would give you an insight of the health issues women are prone to:
- Heart Diseases:
One in every four women dies of heart disease. Although, it is believed that heart diseases are more common in men but the trends are changing and the chances of women to survive a heart disease are lesser than men. Women are at higher risk of heart attack between 40 to 50 years of age and around 60 years of age. This is because the former age group goes through menopause; changes in hormones do not give enough protection to women’s health. The pressure of work and family and the loneliness as children leave for colleges and offices also increases their risk of heart attack.
Deterioration of body after the age of 60 years makes women prone heart diseases.
To prevent heart diseases and manage their risk factors such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol; Preserva Wellness has designed Cardigold Juice and Cholestoblast Capsules.
- Breast Cancer:
Breast cancer typically originates from the lining of the milk ducts and can spread to the other organs. It is the most aggressive cancer affecting female population. Women affected with breast cancer may develop breast lumps initially. Not all breast lumps are cancerous but getting each breast lump checked is important to rule out any misfortune.
To prevent cancer, to manage it and to reduce side effects of chemotherapy; curcumin enriched herbal Immunoblast Capsules and Boosthealth Tablets have been designed by Preserva Wellness.
- Ovarian and Cervical Cancer:
Yes, ovarian cancer and cervical cancer are different. When abnormal cells in the ovary begin to multiply and get out of control, it can lead to ovarian cancer. If it is not treated, the tumor can spread to other organs of the body. The symptoms of ovarian cancer can include abdominal pain, pressure and bloating, abnormal fullness after eating, difficulty eating, increase in urination, increased urge to urinate, irregularities in menstrual cycle or periods, painful intercourse.
Cervical cancer occurs in the cells of cervix, the lower part of the uterus that connects to vagina. Various strains of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) are instrumental in causing most cervical cancers. Signs and symptoms include vaginal bleeding after intercourse, between periods or after menopause; watery, bloody vaginal discharge that may be heavy and may have a foul odour. Cervical cancer can cause discharge and pain during intercourse.

- Autoimmune Diseases:
Majority of people with autoimmune disorders are women. The fluctuation of sex hormones in women is associated with worsening of autoimmune diseases. Some foetal cells remaining in the blood after pregnancy, stronger inflammatory responses in women when their immune systems are triggered, and presence of two ‘X’ chromosomes in women in contrast to one ‘X’ chromosome in men are thought to be the factors behind higher number of autoimmune diseases in women.
Symptoms can include exhaustion, mild fever, pain in affected parts or joints, skin irritation, vertigo and specific symptoms of specific autoimmune diseases. Specific curcumin herbal products for different autoimmune diseases have been designed by Preserva Wellness. E.g. Rheumatoid arthritis can be managed with Arthrogold Tablets and Arthroblast Juice.
