Women's Health

“I am the bread of life...so he who feeds on Me will live  because of Me.”  John 6:48, 57, NKJV


  1. Keep the faith. Women who frequently attend religious services are 46 percent less likely to have life-threatening illnesses than those who
    attend less often.
  2. Get moving for a healthier heart. Thirty minutes a day is enough to add three years to your life.
  3. Eat salads to strengthen immunity.
  4. Keep in close contact with friends and family. It’s proven to increase your odds of living to an old age by 22 percent.
  5. Sit less. By cutting TV viewing to less than two hours every day, you might extend your life by almost 1.4 years.
