Wellness Letter: Women’s History & Nutrition Month

Dr Chinara Tate

In addition to honoring female pioneers, PSC is celebrating the overlap of Women's History Month and National Nutrition Month by focusing on women's health. 

In line with a movement toward more

personalized medicine, health and wellness that supports different cultures and aims to meet individual needs, this year's Nutrition Month theme is 'Personalize Your Plates’

Women’s energy and micronutrient needs shift as we develop, grow, give life if we choose to, and age. 

For those with medical conditions, specific foods may be good to restore health, while others may be indicated to better be consumed in moderation, or eliminated entirely.

Heart disease, diabetes and cancer are among the most common chronic illnesses that disproportionately affect women and are influenced by dietary intake. 

To reduce long-term risk and reap short-term health rewards:

  • Hyper-Visible Fruit - place a colorful mixed bowl of fruit where most visible to you to grab between Zoom calls. This will help pack in your 5 a day and prevent the afternoon slump!
  • 30 Plants a Week - aim to consume 30 plants a week in the form of a variety of fruits, vegetables and whole grains to not only ward off illness long-term but help diversify your gut microbiome - the key predictor of gut health.
  • While general nutrition guidelines for disease prevention among women underscore the importance of consuming a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, poly and monounsaturated fats, there isn't a one size fits all recommendation for supporting women's (or men's) health. Dr. Tate can help you discover yours.
