Majority of younger women prefer other health solutions beyond what their doctor recommends

More than half of millennial women feel the advice they receive from their doctor does not cut it when it comes to their health, according to new research. The survey asked 2,000 U.S. females between the ages of 25 and 35 to describe their experiences with various facets of their health and wellness, and the results found that three in five prefer other health solutions beyond what their doctor recommends (64%). On average, women don't start worrying about their health until they're 29, and most agree that it's important to start focusing on their wellness in their youth to prevent issues as they age (90%). Interestingly, respondents said they felt motivated to take better care of their health after experiencing life-changing adjustments to their bodies. And, when millennial women looked back, the top three health areas they said were important to prevent issues later in life were stress (54%), having low energy (45%) or changes to their weight (43%). As a result, millennial women have added wellness routines to their daily lives to help support their health, and 46% of women who have them said it's changed in the past year due to stress. Commissioned by Rae Wellness and conducted by OnePoll, the survey found that the areas of health millennial women are most concerned about today are stress (61%), mental health (53%) and sleep (46%).
