A new research has shown that beer can stop your bones from going brittle. The study found that women who drink beer regularly have strong bones that means they are less likely to suffer from osteoporosis. But,  according to the journal Nature reports, wine does little to protect from osteoporosis. High silicon levels in beer slows down the thinning that leads to fractures and boosts new bone formation and beer is also rich in phytoestrogens, which keep bones healthy, the […]

Heart diseases are the main leading cause of death for most of the women, when compared with men (Heart diseases in women). Every minute that passes, another female dies with some sort of heart problem. Certain heart diseases, which are mainly responsible for causing death, can mainly include coronary heart disease, heart failure, peripheral arterial disease, and also stroke. That’s why as a woman, it becomes your responsibility to take care of yourself to prevent various types of heart diseases […]

Dry eyes are most common health problem in women, particularly in menopausal women. The main cause for dry eyes is due to fluctuations in most important hormones estrogen (estrogen levels) and androgens. Not only post menopausal women, even pregnant women who use birth control pills and women undergoing hormone replacement therapy are frequently diagnosed with dry eyes. If you are the one among those suffering with dry eyes, here are few effective ways to get better relief. Optimize your diet […]

If you are a woman living in a multi-generational household—you, your husband, your children, and your parents all under one roof, for example—you are twice as likely to have a heart attack or find yourself needing heart surgery as women who live only with their husbands, or with their husbands and children. It is thought that this is due to the added stress of a multi-generational household. Interestingly, the results did not hold true for the men in such situations, […]

When most of us think of heart attacks and strokes the picture that immediately comes to mind is an overweight, balding, middle-aged man gripping his chest in appalling agony. This is an image we have seen a thousand times in movies and TV shows. One image you don’t see is that of a woman gripping her chest in the same way as she has a heart attack. That is because we have become accustomed to thinking of heart attacks as […]

If you find yourself running to the bathroom frequently, you may be suffering from a condition known as overactive bladder. For some women, frequent urination is an inconvenience. For others, the problem can be so severe that they avoid leaving home. There are several different reasons you may be going to the bathroom frequently. To properly address the problem, you may need to work with your health care provider. One common cause of urinary frequency can be a bladder infection. […]

According to a study, the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra has proven effective at combating sexual dysfunction in depressed women. Sexual dysfunction is a common side effect of antidepressants and a major reason why people stop taking medication for their depression. This is particularly problematic given that twice as many women as men are prescribed antidepressants but the most effective drugs used to combat sexual dysfunction in men are not approved for use in women, the authors wrote. Researchers tested Viagra […]

This is an impulse control disorder that refers to the urge in some individuals to pull out hair from the head, eyelashes, eyebrows, nose hair and other facial hair and even pubic hair. Stress factors in the environment, depression and internal stress could also be stress factors sometimes. It is sometimes classified as habit behavior such as nail biting and picking of the skin, but anxiety, depression and obsessive compulsive disorder are more frequently encountered in people with Trichotillomania. Sufferers […]

A recent study examined the likelihood of a person dying after having suffered a heart attack and found that women were far more likely to die within a month after a heart attack than men are. Though it is not fully clear why this is the case, the study suggested that the reasons may be twofold. There are biological differences among men and women, which could go some way to explain this difference. The average age of a woman who […]

National Scottish statistics showed that the rate of alcohol deaths in Scotland registered its highest level of deaths amongst women and that it was even higher than deaths amongst English men. Drinking has now become part of Scottish women’s lives and more than 30 percent of Scottish women are now consuming over 14 units of alcohol per week, which is the limit, recommended by the Government. Thousands of Scottish women suffer from diseases related to alcohol abuse, such as cirrhosis […]
