LONDON, March 18, 2019 — Benjamin Franklin once said “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” for this age group, that quote could not be more appropriate; a crucial period for disease prevention in women, especially since current lifestyle demands differ immensely from any other age in history.
The most common goals on Lisa Borg’s clients long term health wish-lists include:

- Reaching and maintaining optimum weight, without constant dieting
- Radiant, youthful skin
- Maintaining a firm body
- Sufficient energy to meet all lifestyle demands
- Maintaining libido
- Teaching children about healthy eating, and cooking healthy meals for their family
- Managing all of the above while working full time
While it’s good to see the traditional role of women in nurturing the family is still very evident, it’s unfortunate that their level of responsibility sometimes reaches such heights, that to meet all demands seems like an impossible task, and leaves them looking ‘wired’ and worn-out at the same time.
In clinical practice, Pulse Light Clinic see women desperately trying to meet all of these goals, only to have their own health fail them. By observation, Lisa Borg would suggest the difference between healthy and unhealthy women is their attitude towards themselves. Healthy women understand that giving their own health a priority results in higher energy to meet demands, they’re proud to be setting a good example, and they know if they’re happy with how they look and feel, they’re more capable and willing to take care of and support other family members.
Changing self-image and appreciating that a healthy woman can achieve more with less effort is a key point to remember.
Things to consider about the foods they eat:
- A healthy woman is a nourished woman.
- Absorption of nutrients depends upon full digestion.
- No food digests sufficiently to release nutrients without the action of enzymes
- Digestion begins in the mouth; chewing thoroughly increases surface area, and mixes food with salivary enzymes that begin break-down of carbohydrates.
- Everything eaten results in a hormonal response within the body.
- Some foods affect the delicate balance of hormones negatively, while others do not.
- Hormonal Imbalances are at the root of osteoporosis, weight problems, mental health, sexual health, poor stress response, and breast, uterine & ovarian cancers.
- Balanced hormones play a significant role in maintaining homeostasis (stable and balanced internal conditions).
In conclusion, optimum digestion assists hormone balance; both equally vital to the goals of women.
