Redefining Women's Wellness: A Reflection on International Women's Health Day

In the words of esteemed Prof. Tim Noakes, “For every complex problem, there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.” 

As we commemorate International Day of Action for Women’s Health on 28 May, we spotlight an often-overlooked yet profound issue in women’s health: insulin resistance. A large portion of health and chronic diseases all have underlying issues that link back to insulin resistance, making it very important to consider in general women’s health.

International Women’s Health Day is a poignant reminder of the unique health challenges women face worldwide. At Nutrition Network, we are committed to empowering women with the knowledge and tools to take charge of their health, and on this day we reflect on what it truly means to be a healthy woman and how we can support each other in achieving optimal well-being.

What does it mean to be a healthy woman? Jayne Bullen, our Managing Director, explores this question in her insightful presentation in our online course on Women’s Health. She highlights the interconnected nature of physical, mental, and emotional health in women, emphasizing the importance of balance in all aspects of life. Jayne’s talk challenges the traditional medical model, which often fails to address the unique needs of women, leading to misdiagnosis or underdiagnosis of health issues.

Women’s health goes beyond just the absence of disease. It encompasses a holistic approach that considers social, cultural, and environmental factors. Jayne discusses the impact of trauma on women’s health and the crucial role of sleep in maintaining overall well-being. She stresses the need for personalized care that takes into account each woman’s individual needs and experiences.

To empower women to take control of their health, Jayne provides practical tips and resources. She emphasizes the importance of a balanced diet and regular exercise, as well as the value of community support in promoting good health. Jayne’s presentation inspires women to reconnect with their “why” and take action towards creating a more equitable healthcare system for all.

“Nutrition Network is committed to making a global impact on healthcare and disease management. We believe in the essential and under-valued role of women and their intrinsic value in medicine, research, society. We believe women deserve better access to leadership, better support and to do this they need better support with their health.” – Jayne Bullen, Managing Director at Nutrition Network

On this International Women’s Health Day, let us commit ourselves to supporting women’s health and well-being. Let us advocate for change and raise awareness about the unique challenges women face. Together, we can create a healthier, more empowered future for women everywhere. Join us in our mission to redefine women’s wellness and make a difference in the lives of women around the world.
