In the realm of healthcare and life sciences, data reigns supreme. From public health discussions to scientific breakthroughs, data plays a pivotal role. And let's not forget the pandemic, which catapulted the digitalization of healthcare and expanded the availability of health-related data. It's safe to say that data is a game-changer for care delivery, disease prediction, innovation in biopharma and MedTech, and patient outcomes.
But hold on, there's a catch. Despite the exponential growth in healthcare data, there are glaring gaps, especially in women's health. These gaps span the entire data value chain, from defining women's health to diagnosing, tracking, and analyzing data. These disparities have a direct impact on women's health outcomes worldwide, creating blind spots in research, investment decisions, and prioritizing medical advancements. And guess what? Certain subsets of women, such as those from diverse backgrounds, different sexual...
Everything about your brain - from the structure, to the chemical makeup, to the electrical function - predispositions you to be a great leader.
Women posses denser gray matter in key areas of the brain responsible for leadership capacities:
Higher gray matter volume in the prefrontal cortex strengthens executive functions such as decision-making, impulse control, and emotional regulation. This combination of decision-making prowess and emotional intelligence creates a powerful foundation for effective leadership.
Denser gray matter in the hippocampus provides women with enhanced episodic memory and spatial navigation. This advantage allows women to recall past experiences and draw meaningful connections, analyze complex situations, consider multiple perspectives at once, and navigate through complex challenges with precision.
Higher gray matter volume in the ...
Women's biohacking can in no way be compared to how men biohack their health. Here's why.
Men primarily run on a repeating 24-hr hormone cycle whereas women have a daily hormone cycle AND a monthly hormone cycle layered on top.
What this means for our male counterparts is a high success rate with the same biohacking routine each day – hence why men thrive using biohacks like intermittent fasting or HIIT workouts daily.
For women, it’s a bit more complex – we have a 24-hr hormone cycle like men (regulating sleep/wake cycle – driven by cortisol/melatonin) layered on top of a 28(ish) day hormone cycle (driven by estrogen/progesterone).
Because of this, women have to consider both cycles and the resulting ebb and flow of hormone, biochemical, neurochemical and physiological changes when making health choices.
Women who experience a female hormone cycle...
In honor of #internationalwomensday and #womenshistorymonth we at Her Biorhythm ™ want to raise awareness around a core global issue for women.
In recent years, “Gender Equity and Inclusion” has become all the buzz. This is following a staggering mass exodus of women from the workforce in 2021 that raised eyebrows about corporate inclusivity.
In fact, millions upon millions of dollars have been pumped into global corporate structures in the name of “Diversity, Equity & Inclusion”, yet we have made LITTLE TO NO PROGRESS in actually creating working environments that truly INCLUDE women.
Instead of asking questions to uncover the root cause of women’s mass exodus, we question their capabilities and slap a bandaid of DE&I on a hemorrhaging wound - further driving toxic behaviors that push women out of the workforce.
“CAN WOMEN REALLY HAVE IT ALL?”
Is a question that BBC News posed to their global audience...
