“What exercises in The Bladder Cure program should I focus on to stop urge or OAB?”

Friday, November 5th, 2010

To gain control of urge incontinence or overactive bladder (OAB) there are a couple things to focus on when retraining your pelvic floor muscles:

  1. Quick Contractions – of the pelvic floor so you can activate to stop the urge.
  2. Endurance Training – for your bladder, to increase the holding power of your bladder muscle.
  3. Relaxation / Meditation – general relaxation of your nervous system will also calm the bladder muscle.  A simple technique is included in The Bladder Cure program.
  4. Eliminate Bladder Irritants – figure out what foods irritate your bladder.

The long contractions are important for general pelvic floor muscle strength, so keep doing these too!

Why do I still have urges?

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

User question:  “I have been following The Bladder Cure program, why do I still have urges?”

Question to user:  Are you having fewer urges now than before using the program?

User answer: “Well, yes, but when I have to go, I have to go.”

Explanation:  We all have a point of no return with our bladder; when it is truly time to empty.  Your measure of success is whether or not the frequency of the urges has declined.  Repeating the Behavior Tracker 4-6 weeks after starting the program will help you see how much progress you have made.  Keep up the good work!
