Women’s health website, MyLifeStages.org, helps busy women put their health first in the new year. Meal plans, medical advice, workout tips and more from Sutter Health experts.
Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) January 04, 2013
Its common today for many women to feel pulled between multiple responsibilitiescaring for aging parents, looking after a family, raising children and advancing a career. But this juggling act can throw a womans health out of balance. Missing a mammogram, putting off exercise or cancelling a doctors appointment to care for others can increase health risks, particularly in women ages 40 and over.
The fact of the matter is that weve got the expanding waistlines, the rising blood pressure and chronic conditions to prove were just not taking care of ourselves like we should, says San Francisco internist Toni Brayer, M.D., womens health blogger and medical advisor for Sutter Health’s award-winning womens health website MyLifeStages.org.
Adds Dr. Brayer, We women worry that we are too fat, too thin, too flabby, too stressed, and then we use our energy to take care of others instead of putting ourselves at the forefront of care.
Dr. Brayer and Northern California-based Sutter Health challenge women everywhere to try something radically different this holiday season and throughout 2013put themselves first and make self-care a top priority.
Through a variety of interactive resources on its womens health website, Sutter Health gives real women practical tools to live healthier lives in spite of hectic schedules, including a nutritionist-approved sugar detox diet, a lazy girl workout plan, tips for vitality at any stage of life and ways to make resolutions succeed.
In November 2012, the leading Internet publication eHealthcare Strategy & Trends recognized MyLifeStages.org as among the best health websites for its impressive library of interactive health information. The website received its fourth eHealthcare Leadership Gold Award for Best Overall Internet Site in the Consumer General Health category as well as a Best Interactive Marketing Campaign award for its 2012 Love Your Body Challenge.
