About Create Health Foundation
Create Health Foundation is a charity devoted to the promotion of an evidence-based, holistic and supportive approach to women’s reproductive health through education and research. It 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 reproductive 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 Create Health Foundation aims to raise significant funds for major pioneering research projects making new inroads into treatments for specific key health problems affecting women.
