In health matters, men and women are not the same. Certain diseases affect us a lot and we must take better care of ourselves. Discover the definitive health guide with the 19 best tips for women.

Watch your flow

Flow changes in quantity and consistency during the menstrual cycle. It is usually whitish and has a neutral odor.

19 very feminine health tips for women

Against cystitis

An adequate diet helps prevent the appearance of cystitis. To avoid it, a very diuretic diet with foods rich in water that provide vitamins necessary to strengthen the immune system is convenient. Blueberries are especially recommended as they contain anthocyanins.

Abra in your size

If you take the pill, avoid tobacco

The use of oral contraceptives associated with tobacco consumption multiplies the risk of suffering from thrombophlebitis, pulmonary embolism, acute myocardial infarction, and stroke. For this reason, Dr. Milagros Pedreira, president of the Group of Cardiovascular Diseases in Women, of the Spanish Society of Cardiology, is blunt: "with the use of oral contraceptives the suppression of tobacco is mandatory".

Say no to constipation

Of the 20% of Spaniards who suffer from constipation, 90% are women. To avoid this, eat a healthy diet rich in fiber. To reach the recommended 35g per day, include fruit in your breakfast and main meals (such as kiwi) and opt, whenever possible, for whole foods. Seeds, such as flax, poppy, or sesame seeds are also a great source of fiber.

Soybeans, red clover, and ginkgo Biloba contain isoflavones, which prevent and relieve hot flashes. Drinking little alcohol and coffee also helps.

High GI foods promote breast cancer

According to a study by the Caroline Institute in Stockholm (Sweden), foods with a high glycemic index (potato, bread, cooked carrot) increase the chances of developing breast cancer, since a high glycemic load favors the appearance of tumor cells.

Iodine for the thyroid

According to the WHO, it is essential that women take 150 micrograms of iodine daily, to maintain the proper functioning of the thyroid gland. Its deficiency can cause a metabolic problem of the thyroid. You can find it, in addition to iodized salt, in kombu seaweed, wakame seaweed, cod, tuna, sardine, or salmon.

Stroke is the leading cause of death in women over 65 years. It is a group of diseases that affect the blood vessels that supply blood to the brain. Pay attention to these symptoms that appear suddenly: muscle weakness, difficulty on one side of the face to speak, vision problems, the arm and leg on the same side do not have the strength to stay elevated.

Tired and irritable what if you lack iron?

Men need 8mg a day while we require up to 18mg to make up for what we lose during menstruation. To avoid deficiencies -which cause fatigue, tiredness, and lack of concentration- eat foods that have iron such as lean red meat, cockles, chocolate, clams, lentils, or almonds.

Exercise against diabetes

A balanced diet for your heart

During menopause, estrogens decrease, which causes the cardiovascular system of women to respond differently to excess fat, sometimes generating a lot of cholesterol. Therefore, you must follow a diet rich in fruit, vegetables, fish, eggs, nuts, and low-fat dairy products.

Strong bones

This mineral contributes to bone health and prevents osteoporosis. In adulthood, we need 1,000mg / day, but during menopause, we need 1,500mg / day because it is not so well assimilated. To strengthen your bones, have at least two more dairy products a day. Good sources of calcium are milk, cheese, yogurt, and edible fish with bones (for example, sardines).
