Women are the bosses but most careless

Trust me you are the boss of your family as far as healthcare and food related matters are concerned. Ask any one in the family and this is you and you alone who is being looked at, every one including your husband, children and guests are your responsibility ask any one in your family and he would name you but do you ever get enough time for yourself! Do you take care of your own health the way you do it for others? Despite doing your best for your family members for such a long time so selflessly, I am sure your answer would be in negative and ‘short on time’ would be your main excuse. 


Isn’t it high time you took your own care in a proper manner and spared some time for your own health! You should not think for a moment that you need no care, do it now before it is too late. You maybe right but the facts do suggest that in cases of death of women were due to late detection of diseases because women were not careful enough. Do you think that diseases in women occur after informing them? Therefore, this is better to have a regular medical check up for different problems common in women and stay healthy and fit. The right time to begin a routine medical check up of your health is when you have completed the age of thirty.  

The basic check-ups for you 

Woman, being finance minister of the home keep a close watch on the budgeting and savings and forgets that she too is part of the household when it comes to spending on self especially, in case of health related expenses therefore I must add it here that these tests are neither expensive nor complicated. You can have these tests like other ordinary tests in case of blood or test for hemoglobin etc. Once you are through these tests, you would be sure about your physical condition.

Therefore, the women are the best judges of their own health related problems because only they can feel the changes taking inside their body. Most of the diseases have no outer symptoms but signs best known to the woman suffering from a disease.
