Every day is International Woman's Day at HUM2N, but we especially love this year's theme #BreakTheBias because it reflects the very reason we exist - to support women in breaking through biases when it comes to health. 

Women's health equality is a long and complicated issue, and unfortunately, research shows women are more likely to be diagnosed later than men across all diseases. A gender-equal world should look like the same medical treatment for all people. However, there are steps you can take to protect yourself now.

Get To Know Your Body 
Find out what your baseline health looks like and you can start by tracking your “normal” (such as your mood, moles, PMS symptoms, and other health quirks.) We then recommend getting your comprehensive blood work done so you have a picture of how your body functions. Understanding your body in this way will help you if something feels off in the future. 

Be Your Own Advocate
Hearing “no” or being dismissed by your physician or health expert can be frustrating, but you can and should always get another opinion if you don’t feel right. We encourage you to do your research, ask questions, and voice what you need and deserve. This is incredibly important to your overall health and happiness. 

Find A Health Expert You Can Trust
Your health expert should listen fully, ask follow-up questions, and provide the testing necessary to find out the root causes of your symptoms and conditions. That’s why our integrative team of health experts spend time getting to know you and offer advanced diagnostic testing to get to the root of your symptoms.

It's time to take charge of your health. Meet your health expert today and book in for a discovery call. We also encourage you to keep an eye out on our socials for updates on our upcoming #WellnessBrunchClub events, where we host monthly women's health meet-ups at our HUM2N Knightsbridge Lounge.
