Create Health Foundation
Create Health Foundation (formerly HER Trust) is a charity (Registered Charity No: 1082195) devoted to the promotion of an evidence-based, holistic and supportive approach to women’s reproductive health through education and research. Create Health Foundation aims to be the most comprehensive, enlightened women's reproductive health charity in the UK.
Through our website and research projects, we aim to encompass all aspects of women’s health from puberty to menopause. Our philosophy is to encourage women to be informed, positive and proactive and to give them the confidence to make decisions about conventional treatment and therapeutic treatment options.
We aim to bridge the gap between orthodox and complementary medicine so that women are fully aware of and have access to tried-and-tested treatments. And, HER Trust aims to raise significant funds for major pioneering research projects making new inroads into treatments for specific key health problems affecting women.
Create Health Foundation’s Mission Statement:
- • To raise awareness of women’s reproductive health among the public and healthcare professionals
- • To empower women with information about their bodies at all ages, from puberty to menopause
- • To support basic and clinical research in women’s health
We believe women need Create Health Foundation because…
Despite the enormous medical advances of the last century, many areas of women’s reproductive health remain a mystery. There is still widespread ignorance amongst women - and even health professionals - about a whole range of female disorders such as polycystic ovary syndrome, premature ovarian failure, premenstrual syndrome, endometriosis, subfertility and menstrual and menopausal disorders all of which can severely affect a woman’s sense of well being as well as disrupting her social and family life.
Doctors specialising in Obstetrics and Gynaecology are currently trained to use a surgical and interventionist approach to female disorders. Unfortunately, such a clinical approach can have short-term and long-term side effects and women might want to explore preventative and natural approaches where possible. However, there is a lack of awareness of the effectiveness of 'natural' and alternative treatments.
