Happy 2017, y’all! I hope this year will bring relief from all your bladder issues – keep on learning and searching! In today’s post I would like to address something that I personally have been messing around with in the past month. It is the connection between low metabolism and overactive bladder.
Kegel exercises are one of the main treatment options for urinary incontinence (specifically for ‘stress incontinence’). Kegels were first introduced by the American gynaecologist Arnold Kegel in 1948 and since then have been supported as being effective in several studies.
The overactive bladder diet is designed to avoid potential irritants that could increase urinary frequency and to give our body everything it needs to function optimally.
A good diet has to be the foundation of every healing protocol. Why? Because our bodies are designed to use different nutrients to carry out metabolic functions (i.e. all chemical reactions taking place in the body) and to build and repair cells. All these nutrients are found in the natural foods that we have evolved with but are lacking in the typical Western diet.
