8 Important Vitamins & Minerals for Women

8 Important Vitamins and Minerals for Women

With the fast-paced modern lifestyle, even when we eat very well . . . the fact remains that most of us cannot get the vitamins and minerals we need from food alone!

This is why supplementation with multivitamins, multi-minerals, and other nutrients is vital to bridging that gap!

Bridging this gap is especially important for women!  With menstruation, pregnancy, breastfeeding and child-rearing – women’s bodies do amazing things. However, without proper nutrition – what might be natural and amazing, becomes difficult and exhausting instead!

In the Savvy Team, we’ve always recommended targeted vitamin supplementation for women – because when you boost levels of key nutrients in your body, you give yourself the best chances of preventing cancer, heart disease, dementia and other diseases.

According to a study published in the January 2015 edition of the ‘Journal of the American College of Nutrition’, roughly 40 percent of adults are deficient in vitamin A, C, D, E, calcium, and magnesium. The findings of studies such as this suggest that many people may not even have the nutrient levels they need to stave off disease – let alone optimise their health and wellbeing! As we see it, everyone needs a multivitamin for disease prevention, and new research fully agrees!

So ladies . . . what essential nutrient needs should you be topping-up on?

Healing Fibroids Naturally

Fibroids in the uterus, and cysts on the ovaries are benign (not cancerous) growths, which can cause no symptoms, mild or severe symptoms of pain, bloating and/or bleeding. Christine Northrup MD says “The good news is most fibroids don’t cause symptoms, don’t require any fancy treatment, and almost never require a hysterectomy, despite what you may have heard.”

Both uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts affect 75% of women. They’re present in 25-40 percent of women in their childbearing years, and about 40 percent of women have one or more fibroids when they reach menopause. According to Dr Ramsey  the cause of both fibroids and ovarian cysts are similar – either or both oestrogen dominance and liver overload. Read More

Natural progesterone

Women worldwide want to feel good, look great, and avoid the common symptoms of pain and discomfort associated with menstruation and menopause. The quest to discover solutions to the myriad of symptoms that plague woman and men is ongoing.

Yet for many decades Dr John Lee personally had a positive impact on millions of women worldwide, with the introduction and education of his revolutionary study into the causes of hormonal imbalance.

He said, “It may sound too good to be true, but it’s merely a case of supplying the body with what it needs to maintain balance. You’ve read about how out of balance our estrogenic environment has become; it’s no wonder women are feeling much better when they use some natural  progesterone in the form of a simple cream.”

There seem to be many benefits from using such a cream. But where does one find it? Read More

My Story: Overcoming Infertility, Chronic Fatigue, & Depression.

My Story: Overcoming Infertility, Chronic Fatigue, Depression. How the Savvy Team Helped Me Transform My Health!

One of the best things we discovered about the Savvy Team, was the extensive support received. I particularly loved the information I got as a result of the ongoing support, constant connection and feedback, I was able to adjust our program and actually take responsibility for my families health and wellbeing.

After enduring a range of hormonal imbalances as a teenager, and then being put on the Contraceptive Pill to supposedly ‘fix’ these, as the years went by my health deteriorated. I suffered from mild depression and finally debilitating chronic fatigue after a bout of glandular fever. Eventually, I discovered I was infertile and underwent three years of IVF with severe side-effects.

I don’t want to dwell on past history and old problems, but I guess the point to make from this – I THOUGHT I WAS NORMAL and so did the doctors I saw throughout my life to the age of 30.

I thought all of these problems were a normal part of being a woman and because I got no relief from talking to GPs about any of these issues (in fact, it took seeing a range of GPs and 3 months before the Glandular Fever was even diagnosed) I thought the only problem I had was in my head – and from various Doctor’s comments I think many of them thought so too.

I thought that all my sicknesses were ‘normal’ . . .
