Let’s Talk About Women’s Health!

Did you know that May is Women’s Health Month? It’s kind of fitting, since I have Celiac’s Disease (which I will be talking about next week because it’s also Celiac Disease Awareness Month) and I try to be health-conscious due to that. May apparently is a fantastic month for health and awareness all the way around!  

Not only do I have the Celiac’s Disease, but I was also diagnosed with Hypothyroidism last year. Both of those conditions are autoimmune disorders, which means that my immune system attacks itself when I get sick, instead of attacking all the bad germs. 

Healthy Choices

As you can imagine, these two issues have taught me to be very careful when being around others who are sick, and to be able to recognize my triggers. And my top triggers? Stress and bad diet! So I’m constantly trying to simplify and make sure I eat gluten-free, in order to maintain good health.

As a result, as women go, I’m one who is pretty careful and pretty sensitive to her body. Sometimes it doesn’t work. Sometimes it does. I do the best I can! But it’s definitely a top priority. Because if I’M not healthy, I can’t participate in life with my family and friends like any normal person. And we can’t have that!

So when I was shared this info-graphic on women’s health by Oscar Insurance, I knew it would be perfect for all of us to take to heart! Where do YOU fall into the chart?

I love this! So simple and easy to see exactly what you should be doing to maintain good health! Of course, we all have our health routines, but I would venture to say, if you’re not doing ANY of the above…you might want to give it a thought!  If you’re interested in finding more about Oscar, you can check out some more NY and NJ health insurance information here.

So where do you fall in the categories above? What steps have you taken this month to be a healthier woman?

However, I absolutely do read them all, and if you’d like to address something specific, or have a question for me, please don’t hesitate to email me at Kristen@theroadtodomestication.com.

  1. I’m bad about doing any kind of routine maintenance. It’s just not my thing, but the good thing is that I’m the healthiest person I know. It doesn’t make sense, but I think keeping busy and keeping a positive attitude about my health is that the heart of it. I get a sniffle about every two years and that’s about it.

  2. I know I could definitely be taking better care of myself. I need to eat right and exercise more. Thanks for the reminder 🙂

  3. Sorry to hear about your illness =( I wasn’t aware that May was in fact Woman’s Health month. That’s good to know. Now that I have hit the big 30 I am more conscious about my health and tend to visit my doctors more often for a good old check up. Thanks for the tips. I think the graph is a wonderful reminder.

  4. This is great, Kristen, I appreciate the graphic. I tend to ignore my own health until something happens to remind me that I need to be more proactive in that area.

  5. That graphic is really useful, thanks so much for sharing! Also I love that you will be writing about your disease, I think it’s really interesting 🙂

  6. What a great graphic. I’m turning 30 in July and I am glad to see things like this. Know where I am, and what I should be doing for my health!

  7. These are really helpful guidelines for people to follow. I do see my doctor regularly and keep up on every test that I need. It can be a lot as you grow older.

  8. I haven’t been to the dr’s since I had my last child. Actually the only dr I’ve been too was the lady doc and . Yeah, I’m not that great about doctors

  9. I agree with everything EXCEPT for the vaccines. I was hospitalized in 2013 with pancreatitis after receiving the MMR vaccine, and my young daughter presented with eczema after receiving her 1 year vaccines. So since then I have done extensive research and have concluded that not only are our bodies equipped to handle most of the diseases that we routinely vaccinate against, but also that vaccines often cause more problems than they prevent. I realize that everyone has different views regarding this and I respect them, but my family definitely is more cautious in this area now.

  10. I need to get better at some of the stuff on this infographic! Thank you for sharing it. I am inspired by how in control you seem of your health despite autoimmune disorders. Thanks for the chance to co-host the #HomeMattersParty with you! Already having fun at this party!
