My 4 Favourite Health Trends for Women in 2019

4 Important Health Trends for Women in 2019

I’ve seen a huge shift in the focus on women’s health care over the last couple of years.  It makes my heart sing to see so many more women putting themselves and their health closer to the top of the list instead of right at the bottom.

Here are 4 emerging health trends every woman should consider in 2019.

  1. Use vitamin D3 WITH vitamin K2.  Vitamin D might just be my favourite vitamin and one everyone in this part of the world should be supplementing with. Why? Because it helps our cells know how to work “normally”.  That means it helps good cells work well, and it helps bad or old cells die and not mutate.  

    But there has been some confusion around the effects of high dosages of vitamin D. Making sure your vitamin D also has vitamin K with it is an important shift to make this year.  It helps to ensure that calcium is deposited in bones and not in arteries.

  2. HIIT Training.  Also called burst training or Tabata training.  If you don’t exercise because the thought of spending an hour at the gym is just not a possibility, HIIT training (High Intensity Interval Training) is for you.  It’s cycling through very quick rounds of movement like pushups or squats at high intensity for less than a minute.  You can get a GREAT workout in less than 10 minutes.  Seriously. There are lots of great DVD’s or YouTube videos to help you along right at home.

  3. Having more “white space” in your schedule.  White space is time where absolutely nothing is booked.  It’s buffer time, and it keeps you from feeling like you’re always running and never on time.  Ladies, 2019 is the year of self care.  And creating more space for US in our schedules is critical.  Do less. Do more of what’s important.  Put yourself first.  

  4. Get your nervous system checked.  There’s a reason why everyone from Cindy Crawford to Serena Williams to Whoopie Goldberg and Marnie McBean get regular chiropractic care.  Because their livelihood depends on them functioning at their highest level.  So does yours!  

    Chiropractic care makes sure that your body is “plugged into” your brain in a way that keeps you thinking and feeling your best.  If you’ve never had yourself or your kids checked for a core problem in the spine or nervous system, 2019 is your year!


HI! I'm Dr. Shawna Dingman and I operate Elevate Women's Health Centre in Port Perry. I am the co-owner of Elevate Health Centres with my husband, Dr. Craig Dingman. 

Speaking of family, I'm a mom of 3 amazing kids: Jackson, Jenna and Cole.  I've always been passionate about the care of women and children, probably because I began my career as a pediatric and pregnancy chiropractor as a young mom with an infant!  Aside from clinical practice, I also co-host a podcast for women chiropractors and coach women chiropractors who want to have practices that are a great fit for their families.  In my "spare" time, I love to cottage with my family, hang out with the kids, CrossFit at our local gym, read a book, catch a great show on Netflix, go for a run or have coffee with friends.
