"Empowerment of women is so important as low self-esteem which unfortunately is so common in the female population of today affects health and wellbeing and progress in the workplace. As an Endocrinologist I am dealing with women with hormone imbalance on a daily basis and hormones control all muscles as well as the immune system. Unfortunately because women of all ages lack self-esteem and self-belief they are constantly multitasking too much and burning out which is a major cause of hormone imbalance, adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue, infertility and irritable bowel syndrome. As well as treating the hormone imbalance I also have to insist on lifestyle change and educate women to pace and have a higher self-esteem and get rid of the guilt associated with sitting down which is all too common place among all the female generations that I deal with. Low self-esteem also affects women socially and leads to incorrect choices of life partners, and the lack of skills to realize their true potential. The young women of today are the future mothers of society so if they lack self-esteem then it affects the men and women of the future as we can only pass high self-esteem to our children if we possess it ourselves. This conference is very necessary as for generations we have unconsciously empowered our sons but not our daughters and education in this area is so important to protect the physical, social and economic health of future generations," according to Dr Ryan.
The conference will be opened by Professor Desmond Fitzgerald President of UL.
Dr Mary Ryan will give a lecture on hormones and health followed by a lecture from Trish Long Vice President of Walt Disney and Loreto Glucksman philanthropist and member of the UL Ireland Fund which has donated and enriched UL over the years.
