Introducing your body A woman’s body is an amazing machine. It’s full of intricate systems that not only sustain life, but may also create new life. Each of these systems must work with the others, in harmony, in order for the female body to function at its best.
We know more today about how a woman’s body works than we have ever done before. Despite that, many women are still unaware of how their organs function or even where they are located.
Even if we know something of our physiology, we rarely know much about our hormones. Many women I see have no idea of the staggering influence their hormones have, from birth, through puberty and pregnancy to menopause, not only on their physical health, but on their emotional health, too. In fact, it’s often not until we try for a baby, begin the menopause or just become unwell that we really start to appreciate how each system in our body affects the others.
Good health begins with a better understanding of how everything inside you fits together. Enjoy your voyage of discovery!
