Doctors do not know enough about the differences between male and female bodies, leading to wrong diagnoses, failed treatments and higher costs, according to a report to be presented to health minister Edith Schippers on Tuesday.
The report is an initiative from the Alliance Gender and Health, set up in 2014 by the women’s network Women Inc. The information in the report was gathered by ZonMVV, an institute which stimulates and finances research into health care and a group of experts. It has the support of the health ministry.
The report includes figures from the central statistics agency CBS, the national compass on public health NKV and the emancipation monitor 2014.
There are few positives in women’s health, according to the report. They live 3.6 years longer than men, are half as likely to be addicted to medicines and around a quarter less likely to die of cancer.
However, women face chronic illness six years earlier than men and experience physical limitations six months earlier. When figures are adjusted for pregnancy, the number of hospital stays for women is 10% higher than for men.
Women visit their GP more often and take more medicines. And these medicines are usually tested on healthy men, leading to more side effects in women. It is more difficult to test medicines on women because of the hormone changes during their menstrual cycle, experts say.
Among the other examples in the report are that women suffer twice as often from migraine, high blood pressure and wear and tear on knees and hips. They are also five times more likely to face violence from a partner.
All of this leads to higher costs in health care, with 55.2% of the total being spent on women.
Women Inc hopes the report will convince Schippers to set up a national programme gender and health, with a first aim of encouraging doctors to use the information in their treatment of men and women.
Question: Dear Lee/Kryon: In my psychotherapy practice, I am specializing in menopause and other women's life transition issues. I am trying to frame menopause as a step within the spiritual evolutionary process, perhaps even part of the female response to ascension. Can you help me with an explanation of what the process of menses means for my clients? And how is it that females seem to undergo this "reverse puberty" process in a more dramatic way than men do?
Answer: Again we say to you that you must remove the biological from the spiritual. Look at what the body does. It is geared to stop the engine of procreation so that the female will not be harmed. That's why it occurs at all. It is an engine of appropriateness related to age. It's also an old paradigm, however, since we teach that you can extend your life-span, and that also means bearing children longer with safety, if that is part of your life plan.
For a male, the evolutionary process is one where, since he does not give birth, his biology is not one that goes through anything in the birth process. Therefore age is unimportant to his health when it comes to producing the seeds, which he can do almost until death.
So the body is protecting the females from undue stress, and even from premature death - going through childbirth when the chemistry is not up to it. This should be seen as a blessing, and one that is honored.
However, now we tell you something that is more along the lines of your question. In females, sometimes the process isn't stopped for biological reasons at all, but spiritual ones! In males, sometimes the hormones of desire and performance are also seemingly prematurely stopped. Ever wonder why this might happen?
The reason? Sometimes shamans need to have some of the common distractions of earth eliminated so that their concentration can be focused more clearly on spiritual matters. Don't read anything into this. It's different for every Human Being, so there is no generality here. But you should know that this is often part of the process of "relief from the distraction of things that are no longer needed," given for spiritual enlightenment. Not for all, but for many. This is often why you perceive elders to be wiser. They don't have that set of very complex and demanding chemicals surging through their body, either giving them pain with each cycle, or the pain of desire without fulfillment, which has its own attributes of psychological frustration and distraction.
For the females: Think of these things as all related. What is it you need? Do you give permission for it? Is it appropriate in your contract? Then when it comes, talk to your cellular structure and replace the chemistry that needs to be there for your energy, and say good-bye to that which is leaving. Give ceremony around it. You may do all of this naturally, talking to your cells. They will respond, and create what is missing.
This is the new Human Being, taking control of their bodies, and speaking directly to their cells. Creating tissue and chemistry naturally, since the cellular structure of your body is "listening" to what you need, and is far more capable than any scientist has ever told you.
And this is the truth.
And this is the truth.
