Women’s health

Welcome to our comprehensive resource on the vital intersection of women’s health, cancer prevention, and nutrition. At Amanda Kate Forman Nutrition, we are dedicated to providing women with the knowledge and resources they need to prioritize their well-being and reduce their risk of cancer through informed dietary choices.

Women’s Health and Cancer: The Connection

Women’s health encompasses a wide range of topics, from reproductive health to heart health, but one area of concern is cancer. Certain cancers disproportionately affect women, such as breast, ovarian, cervical, and uterine cancers. While genetics and other factors play a role, lifestyle choices, including nutrition, are key determinants of cancer risk.

Nutrition is a cornerstone of women’s health and cancer prevention. A well-balanced diet can significantly reduce the risk of cancer and improve overall health. Here’s how:

1. Breast Health

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women. Learn how dietary choices rich in wholefoods, diversity of plants, antioxidants, fibre, removal of alcohol and specific vitamins can support breast health and potentially reduce the risk of breast cancer.

2. Hormonal Balance

Hormonal imbalances can contribute to cancers like ovarian and uterine cancer. Discover how certain foods and lifestyle choices can help maintain hormonal balance and reduce the risk of these cancers.

3. Digestive Health

Dysbiosis (imbalance) of the gut’s bacteria may lead to breast cancer. Certain gut bacteria alter the production if beneficial anti cancer metabolites and disrupt oestrogen metabolism in the gut.

4. Weight Management

Maintaining a healthy weight is crucial for overall well-being and cancer prevention. We provide tips and advice on how to achieve and maintain a healthy weight through mindful eating.

Cancer Survivorship and Nutrition

For women who have already faced a cancer diagnosis, proper nutrition plays a pivotal role in recovery and long-term health. Explore our resources on nutrition for cancer survivors, managing side effects, and reducing the risk of cancer recurrence.
