Incontinence

  1. Incontinence defeated… WITHOUT drugs

    [SOLUTION] End embarrassing bladder leaks WITHOUT drugs

    It’s one of the most COMMON health problems facing older women.

    I’m talking about that leaky bladder… and how it always seems to act up at the WORST possible time.

    It can STOP YOU from doing everything you love....

    Going out for fun evenings with friends – even a trip to the supermarket can be dicey.

    But a leaky bladder is entirely fixable... and in many cases, it can be CURED without any medical help at all.

    I’ll show you how...

    You don’t have to put up with this ANYMORE

    New research reveals how bladder problems have secretly turned into an epidemic, striking MILLIONS of older women.

    According to the study, more than HALF of all women over the age of 65 have bladder control problems. And sadly, TWO-THIRDS of them have haven’t talked about it with a doctor, in most cases because they’re too embarrassed.

    The study also shows just how quickly and completely this one problem can ruin all of the things you love...

    Half of all women say the simple act of laughing can cause a leak, turning one of life’s simplest pleasures into a moment of stress.

    And many women said coughing, sneezing and exercise could all lead to “incidents” as well.

    Well, ladies, if you’re in that leaky ship yourself, I’ve got some news for you today.

    Bladder problems are NOT an inevitable part of aging!

    You can FIND the cause and FIX it… and in some cases, you’ll never have to mention it to a doctor.

    The best “fix” for a leaky pipe will depend on the cause, but I can give you three of the best right here:

    First, you can strengthen the bladder with exercises for the pelvic floor muscle.

    This is a well-known CURE for leaks and takes just minutes a day, but the study finds 62 percent of women never try it!

    You can search online for some simple how-to instructions.

    Second, bladder “training” can also work wonders. Time how long it takes between bathroom runs, then “hold out” a little longer between each.

    Over time, you can turn minutes of stress into hours of pee-free bliss.

    The third solution is even easier, but you’ll have to mention it to a doctor… not to get more meds, but to get RID OF the ones you’re taking!

    The LEADING cause of bladder problems isn’t age or “weak” muscle.

    It’s meds!

    Some of the most common drugs among seniors – including blood pressure meds, painkillers, sleep aids and antidepressants – can all cause control problems.

    If you’re on any of these meds, tell your doc what’s going on and look for an alternative.

    A holistic doctor can help you find the best drug-free solutions, curing both the reason for the meds -- and your bladder problems – ALL AT ONCE!

  2. Incontinence drugs don’t work

    Bladder problems CAN be stopped

    The only thing worse than NO help is the WRONG help -- but that's what too many seniors are getting, especially when it comes to bladder control problems.

    They ask a doctor for help -- no small step when you consider that many seniors are too embarrassed to even mention those problems -- but instead of getting answers, they get meds.

    Now, new research shows how that approach has been a complete failure.

    The new study finds that the drugs commonly given for incontinence work for less than half of all patients who try them.

    That's an embarrassingly low "success" rate.

    It's more like a FAILURE rate -- and along with not curing your leaky bladder, they can actually cause other kinds of bathroom problems, including painful constipation and other side effects.

    The new study claims the "best" option for many seniors is surgery, but even that doesn't work for everyone... and of course, surgery comes with its own risks (especially with older patients).

    There are much safer and far more effective ways to bring incontinence under control so effectively that you can toss the "adult diapers" and go out with confidence again.

    Here are three quick trips anyone can try at home:

    1. Pelvic floor exercises: It sounds silly, but it WORKS. The new study even confirms that these basic exercises are more effective than drugs, helping more than half of the patients who try them. Your doctor can explain the exercises, or you can search online for do-it-yourself instructions. Google "pelvic floor exercises for women" or "pelvic floor exercises for men," since they're obviously a little different in each case.
    2. Lose some weight: You know what happens when you squeeze a wet sponge. If you're overweight or obese, that extra weight could be putting the squeeze on your bladder, which can cause your "sponge" to drip... leading to those embarrassing moments. Drop a few pounds, and you can ease the pressure and stop the squeeze.
    3. Go natural: Instead of meds, consider nondrug therapies such as herbal remedies that can strengthen bladder muscle. Lindera, Horsetail, and Cravetox have worked wonders for many patients fighting bladder control problems.

    If you need more guidance, speak to a holistic medical doctor... and never, ever be too embarrassed to ask for help. Your life may not be on the line with an issue like incontinence. But your QUALITY of life sure is, and that's every bit as important.

  3. Prostate surgery can lead to sexual dysfunction but not life saving

    Men with prostate cancer who don't get surgery have nearly the same survival rate as those who do -- with none of the risks of surgery, according to a new study.
  4. The risk of a PSA test outweighs the benefits

    The PSA test used for years to help detect prostate cancer has been found to be unreliable.
  5. PSA tests don't save lives

    The best way to protect your prostate is to keep it far away from doctors who want to screen it -- and even further from the surgeons who make a living off prostate cancer procedures.
  6. High-tech doesn't mean low-risk

    I wouldn't wish prostate surgery on my worst enemies. Not only is it often completely unnecessary since prostate cancer isn't nearly the killer it's been made out to be -- but the treatments themselves are often worse than the disease and come with more risks than your surgeon will ever let on.
  7. A not-so-fond farewell to the PSA test

    The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has urged docs and patients to put the kibosh on the PSA test -- because after some 2 million prostate surgeries and procedures based on that screening, the disease's death rate has remained unchanged.
  8. Poor sleep hurts 'down there'

    Incontinence, late-night bathroom visits, erection problems and more are all treated with dangerous drugs -- but new studies show there could be a much more pleasant solution.
