Ask the Acupunture Expert – Doreen Hill
Has urinary incontinence got you down? I can offer help.
Do you find that you are afraid to cough or sneeze in public? Are you careful when you belly laugh when you are visiting old friends? Are you finding that you are going down a new grocery isle looking for products that protect your clothes?
Urinary incontinence is a common condition, affecting 25% of premenopausal and 40% of postmenopausal women. While it may not be a critical problem, it reduces the quality of life. It is a fact that only approximately one in four women with urinary incontinence consults their Doctor about their condition. Do not accept this problem as a sign of advancing years or that it is a side effect of having one or more pregnancies. Help can be close at hand.
There are complementary methods used to treat this condition. Acupuncture is a successful treatment option along with supplement support and strengthening of the pelvic floor by performing kegel exercises. A number of clinical trials on incontinence and overactive bladder symptoms have been carried out. Results are very positive in treating incontinence because acupuncture stimulates the nerves that go directly to the bladder, while other points increase the bladder’s energy and encourage its holding function.
