The medical needs of women over 35 are often misunderstood by traditional sources of care, that’s where Nore Women’s Health (pronounced Nor-ay) comes in. A health and wellness medical practice focused specifically on women over 35, Nore has opened its doors at The Village at Old Trace in Marietta and is accepting new patients.
“When a woman comes to Nore, it’s generally because she’s not feeling well. She wants to feel better and is looking to feel like herself again. We know what she’s experiencing and how she’s feeling should not be dismissed as a ‘normal’ part of life,” says Julie Morin, WHNP-BC, nurse practitioner on Nore’s provider team. “At Nore, we are making sure women get the care and evaluation they need so they can ‘Be Their Most’ and get back to enjoying life.”
Research has shown women’s pains are often misunderstood throughout their lives. However, this becomes much worse as they enter menopause because few caregivers specialize in women’s health after child-bearing years. Women’s symptoms are typically written off as “emotional” or “normal for their age,” leaving sufferers uninformed about the medical treatments that can improve their symptoms and their lives.
“With age comes changes, especially if you’re a woman. Some are subtle shifts in health, but others, such as many of the symptoms associated with menopause, can be quite severe and, if left untreated, can negatively impact everyday life. In fact, eighty-five percent of women experience disruptive symptoms such as hot flashes, sleep disturbances, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, overactive bladder and more,” says Heather Quaile, DNP, WHNP-BC, health practitioner and medical provider at Nore Women’s Health. “Women do not have to suffer this way.”
