I came to realize that a bronchitis condition in a female should be treated differently than that of a male. This means, a little more passionately and less aggressively than a male’s treatment. A yeast infection should be treated more aggressively and longer in a female than in a male. Yeast is housed and expressed differently in a female than in a male. Most of all, the psychological aspects should be treated with extreme tenderness and care in a female. This comment should not mean that throughout history women have led predominantly more difficult lives than that of their counterparts. They were held to high expectations with respect to family, children, and the twenty-four-seven maintenance of their households. These responsibilities have evolved what I call non-visual or non-tangible superwoman characters within that one individual called “female”.
Insinuates that a male’s psychology should be treated lesser or harsher than that of a woman. The note denotes the emphasis needed during medical history taking, physical examination, and remedy prescribing.
Women have their own department in medicine for female diseases and treatments. This involves hormonal balances, pregnancies, deliveries, breastfeeding, amenorrhea, and menopause. Some women smoke, and this action reflects on all organs, especially on those special female organs that may affect the way a disease is Expressed in the body. These subtle diversities must be well understood by all physicians whether male or female.
At our clinic, our clinical staff takes pride in their ability to treat each and every female patient uniquely based on her individuality, symptoms, health history, and medical examination. The number one method that we use is really the most straightforward and uncomplicated of them all: we take the time to listen to our female patients. Quite often, women are selfless beings who are so busy trying to take care of the world around them, especially those who maintain their homes twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week plus they add ten more hours to the workforce. I have seen this in my mother, my wife, my sister, my daughters, my colleagues at work, my female friends, and my patients. It is impressive, to say the least, that they can fit thirty-four hours in a twenty-four-hour day.
