While our health is not completely under our control, we can certainly influence it. As women, it is common for us to focus on other priorities like career, education, and relationships, and to put our health and wellness on the back burner. But, by making wellness a priority, we can be better situated to excel in other areas of our lives.
My favorite model for a healthy lifestyle is the doTERRA Wellness Pyramid. It is an excellent tool for both women and men. From that starting point, it is important for women to understand their unique requirements to achieve wellness.
A balanced diet full of whole foods with an emphasis on fruits and vegetables is important for health. Supplements can be useful to ensure that you are getting all the nutrients you need. doTERRA's Lifelong Vitality Pack (Vegan option available) can fill in the gaps. It includes xEO Mega, Microplex VMz, and Alpha CRS+.
- xEO Mega provides you with essential fatty acids that are required for key functions in the human body, including cell growth, brain development, muscle activity, immune function, joint health, and many others.* (Vegan Option available in vEO Mega)
- Microplex VMz provides vitamins and minerals that are often deficient in our modern diets. The formula includes a balanced blend of essential antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E, and an energy complex of B vitamins. Microplex VMz also contains minerals including calcium, magnesium, and zinc for optimal bone and metabolic health.*
- Alpha CRS+ combines potent levels of natural botanical extracts that support healthy cell function with important metabolic factors of cellular energy.*
A nutritional requirement of particular concern to women is calcium. Calcium is crucial to bone health which contributes significantly to quality of life as women age. Most women are not meeting their calcium requirements through diet alone. doTERRA's Bone Nutrient Essential Complex is a supplement that can be started in adolescence and continued throughout life.
Hormones essentially effect every process in the female body and hormonal balance will influence women at every stage in development from before the onset of menses, to menopause, and beyond. Therefore, a woman's hormones are key to her overall health and wellness.
doTERRA's Phytoestrogen Essential Complex can benefit women in the following ways:
- Supports women through the menstrual cycle with a blend of standardized plant phytoestrogens that support hormone balance gently and naturally.*
- Can diminish the normal discomfort of menopause.*
- Supports healthy bones, heart, breast tissue, and other body structures and functions as a woman ages.*
- Can be taken daily to help balance and support normal hormone levels throughout a woman’s life.*
- Provides powerful antioxidant support.*
- Supports estrogen metabolism management which can reduce the risk for a number of health issues.*
Women have unique emotional and physical needs during their monthly cycle - especially leading up to and during menstruation. doTERRA has created a blend specifically designed to support women during this time. ClaryCalm Monthly Blend for Women provides both physical and emotional soothing. It can be applied directly to the abdomen to relieve discomfort. Used aromatically it can calm and balance emotions. Simply apply to pulse points, or, apply to the palm of your hands, cup them over your nose, and inhale for 30 seconds. You can also add ClaryCalm to a diffuser. If you start to feel warm or flushed, apply ClaryCalm to your skin for a cooling effect.
