Celebrate National Women’s Health Week

on May 15, 2012

May 13 through May 19 is officially National Women’s Health Week! Yay! We try to do our part at http://EraseDisease to focus on women’s health as well as men’s health, but it’s great to have a reminder every once in a while how important our ladies are, and how important their health is to everyone. National Women’s Health Week should be used as a tool to ‘encourage all Americans to celebrate the progress we have made in protecting women’s health and to promote awareness, prevention, and educational activities that improve the health of all women,’ the president said.


National Women’s Health Week is a Great Time to….

Tell your mom, sister, daughter or grandma how important they are to you. Did you show yoru appreciation for the women in your life on Mother’s Day? Well, why not extend that appreciation into Women’s Health Week by showing your support for mom’s health. Get mom to do the following to support her own health:


·         Get your yearly physical exam!! Life can get busy, but it’s extremely important to get in for that yearly exam with your OBGYN. It’s easy to forget to schedule one, or simply forget to go in, or put if off for something more important. What is more important than your health?


·         Get your blood pressure and cholesterol levels checked!! As an organization that is passionately, almost insanely, dedicated to heart health and feeling amazing, we can’t stress this one enough. Moms, you might not even know that you’re blood pressure is high, or your cholesterol levels are out of whack. So get checked!! It takes two seconds at your local pharmacy.


·         Eat healthy, drink plenty of water, and take your supplements!! You know that we’re all about all-natural, all-organic living here at Erase Disease. Our heart healthy supplement with l-carnitine and l-arginine is a great way to combat hypertension, as well as many of the symptoms from menopause. Busy days easily lead to fast food lunches and dinners, missed breakfast and not staying properly hydrated. It’s extremely important that you put your health first. Take care of yourself and your body by eating healthy and making healthy food choices.


·         Take time for yourself!! It’s incredibly difficult for moms to take time out for themselves, this we know. But it’s crucial that you do things for you  and you alone. Reduce stress, laugh, smile, feel motivated and positive about life by doing the things that you love to do. Take a class at the local gym that boosts your spirit. Take a walk with the dog or go for a bike ride. You may not realize it, but the stress that builds up in your system from ignoring your needs can wreak havoc on your heart.


Take advantage of National Women’s Health Week by doing something for your heart, your health and your well-being! Visit for more information.
