Why don’t nuns get cervical cancer?
That is one of the many medical mysteries I’ll help you solve in my new blog about women’s health. Bring me your questions, and I’ll sort through the onslaught of information, find the facts, and give you answers.
Want to take action? I’ll help you with that, too.
For nearly forty years, I’ve helped women deliver their babies as a nurse midwife. During that time, my focus turned to gynecology and women’s hormones. I became a nurse practitioner, and for the last seventeen years, I have helped women of all ages manage their life changes.
In my role as a guide to complementary medicine, herbs, and supplements, I have helped over 700 women. This has been an opportunity and a privilege.
Now, as a mother of two adult daughters and a grandmother of two young grandchildren, I have even more perspective. For that, I thank my daughters, who shared their own gynecological and birthing experiences.
Some things in health never change.
Babies still come the same way today as they did centuries ago; menopause is still a process, not a disease; and women still want choices in their health care. And doctors still give seven-minute office visits, hand out a prescription, and offer nothing more.
I aim to make women’s lives better through sharing my expertise in balancing hormones, offering new information on guidelines for PAP smears and mammograms; and uncovering other important facts.
By the way, nuns do not get cervical cancer, or HPV, because they don’t have sex!
Send me your pressing questions, and I’ll do my best to answer them in my next blog.
Until then, take good care of yourselves!
