Part 2 | Healthy Are We: Our Whole Lives
Every stage of life has new choices, new thoughts, and even a new body. Your body, mind, and spirit grow and develop throughout your life. It is healthiest to see life’s changes as growing opportunities. A few important stages of life are childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and elder years. Each stage brings new health concerns and many new decisions to make.
Part 3 | Healthy Are We: Everyday of the Month
The menstrual cycle all happens because the lining of the uterus needs to shed its tissue and blood in order to make a new lining every month. Every month when we begin menstruating, an egg cell also called an ovum - which is smaller than a pencil point - makes a journey from the ovary where it was formed into the uterus.
Part 4 | Healthy Are We: Even When We Are Sick
We all get sick. Women, however, because of our anatomy can get infections more easily than men. Also, because of our menstrual cycles, we get menstrual cramps that make us feel sick. We will talk specifically about both of these discomforts and how to help yourself avoid sickness and what to do when you feel this way.
Part 5 | Healthy Are We: With Proper Care
