HER Trust changes name
HER Trust has changed it's name to Create Health Foundation, a new website and relaunch coming in the late autumn of 2013…
Health Education Research (HER) Trust aims to:
- raise awareness of women’s reproductive health, for both individuals and healthcare professionals
- empower women with information about their bodies at all ages, from puberty to menopause
- support basic and clinical research in women’s health.
Despite the enormous medical advances of the last century, many areas of women’s reproductive health remain a mystery. There is still widespread ignorance amongst women - and even health professionals - about a whole range of female disorders such as polycystic ovary syndrome, premature ovarian failure, premenstrual syndrome, endometriosis, subfertility and menstrual and menopausal disorders all of which can severely affect a woman’s sense of well being as well as disrupting her social and family life.
Doctors specialising in Obstetrics and Gynaecology are currently trained to use a surgical and interventionist approach to female disorders. Unfortunately, such a clinical approach can have short and long-term side effects and women might want to explore preventative and natural approaches where possible.
