Trending Topics in Women’s Health That Can Transform Your Life


Women – sisters, mothers, & friends – have been relying on one another for reliable medical knowledge literally since birth. Which is why, in honor of International Women’s Day, we’re sharing just a few of our favorite topics (and studies) in women’s health that demand attention.

Autoimmune Conditions Disproportionately Affect Women.

Nearly 8 in 10 autoimmune cases are found in women.

To understand why, emerging research looks at risk factors like hormonal health (particularly estrogen levels), the impact of the X chromosome on autoimmune disorders, and higher immune reactivity that is specific to women.

Over 80 different autoimmune diseases exist, including Type I diabetes, arthritis, multiple sclerosis (MS), and Graves’ disease. The process of diagnosing autoimmune disease can be particularly difficult for women because common symptoms such as acne, digestive disturbances, and fatigue are sometimes dismissed as normal aspects of a woman’s daily life.

At Aligned Modern Health, we offer in-depth testing and treatment related to autoimmune disease. By taking a comprehensive and personalized approach, we aim not only to alleviate the symptoms of autoimmune diseases but also to address their root causes to promote long-term wellness.

Iron Deficiency Overlooked for Women.

Feelings of fatigue, irritability, and faintness – symptoms of iron deficiency – can be “normalized” within the context of women’s health.

An estimated 35% of women of reproductive age in the U. S. are deficient in iron – yet, there are no recommendations for regular screenings which means it is rarely part of blood work in annual checkups.

Iron deficiency is linked to various adverse health effects, such as anxiety, depression, disturbances in sleep patterns, and in severe cases, heart failure.

At our clinics, we acknowledge that nutritional evaluations are essential when assessing overall-health. We offer comprehensive nutrient testing to provide a detailed analysis of an individual’s nutritional status at the cellular level, identifying both deficiencies and excesses of essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.


Pain is Not Just “Normal.”

As reports of doctors dismissing pain fill headlines and podcasts, there are several studies supporting the claim that women in pain often are not taken as seriously as men.

The dismissal of symptoms with an “everything is normal” non-diagnosis can limit treatment for a range of debilitating health conditions including hormonal and menstrual disorders like PCOS and Endometriosis,

When your concerns aren’t being heard, it’s important to listen to your body and advocate for your health. If your healthcare provider isn’t listening to you, it’s time to find a new one.
