Today's Women

Women in today's world face a overwhelming amount of challenges and responsibilities in their everyday lives. All Things Treasure Coast recognizes and appreciates women for facing these challenges. We also understand that, as a result of being the "superwoman", many women are sacrifice their health.

The stress of busy lives, including physical challenges and mental demands, can cause damage women's skin, heart, mental status without signs that it is happening until it is too late. This can create issues from wrinkled skin to fatal heart attacks. The women most at risk are between the ages of 45 and 65 years old.

Women tend to feel guilty when they make themselves a priority. Often, it is the compounding effect of stressful lifestyle and guilty feelings that cause health issues. We, at All Things Treasure Coast, want women to know the importance of reducing stress and staying healthy.

As a way of helping women stay informed of health-related issues and find the resources they need, All Things Treasure Coast has created this page. Our women-centered business partners and advertisers will post relevant information on this page. Please check back often to keep up-to-date on what's new with women's topics.

Women's Health

Women face different health risks, depending on their age, lifestyle, background, and current health.  It is important for women to know these risks, in order to take prevention measures.

Women have an increased risk in the following categories:

  • Heart Disease - More women in the U.S. die from heart disease than all forms of cancer combined.
  • Cancer - Not only breast cancer! Lung cancer kills approximately 70,000 women in the U.S. per year.
  • Stroke - Women tend to ignore symptoms for too long. That is why stokes are the leading cause of permanent disability in women.
  • COPD - More women than men die of COPD, an estimated 64,000 annually in the U.S.
  • Diabetes - This is a serious illness that affects almost 26 million Americans. To avoid death due to diabetes, it is important to be diagnosed early.

Women have a tendency to care for others before caring for themselves. This leads to late diagnosis and more complications with serious consequences. Being aware of the risks is the first step in prevention. Seeing a physician for regular check ups can help catch issues early and prevent premature death.
