New Moms -Though bladder leaking is fairly common immediately following child birth, 30% of women continue with unresolved bladder leaking 6 months after giving birth.  Seek treatment early to avoid a lifetime of leaking.

Men – Men may not experience incontinence until later in life but seeking treatment early can minimize symptoms.  Erectile dysfunction can be improved with pelvic floor muscle exercise too.  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16104916

Seniors – Though incontinence is not a normal part of aging, as we become less active and our muscles weaken our symptoms may become worse.  Stay active and seek treatment early to avoid loss of bladder control.

Why do I still have urges?

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!

Relaxation for Overactive Bladder & Incontinence. Why?

January 16th, 2010

Intentionally slowing your breathing rate has overflow effects for your bladder muscle (and heart rate too).  All three body functions are interconnected via the autonomic nervous system.  Stress puts our bodies in a heightened, over-reactive state causing all these body functions to rev up.  In turn, reducing internal stress by slowing your breathing rate calms the bladder muscle and slows your heart rate.  With practice you may notice your bladder spasms subside.  This calming effect can be gained by following the breathing exercises,  found on “The Bladder Cure” DVD, by meditation, yoga or aerobic exercise.

There is growing medical support for the mind-body connection in bladder issues.  Dr. Aaron Michelfelder, MD, of Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine found, “The mind-body connection has proven to be particularly valuable for women suffering from incontinence.”
