Living With an Overactive Bladder
I had a question the other day about an overactive bladder.
With an overactive bladder, you have many strong, sudden urges to urinate during the day and night.
You may get these urges even there’s only a little urine in your bladder.
You might not be able to hold your urine until you get to the bathroom.
This can lead to leaking urine.
Overactive bladder is very common in older adults.
Both men and women can have it, but it’s more common in women.
Overactive bladder is a kind of urge incontinence.
But not everyone with overactive bladder leaks urine.
An overactive bladder can make it hard to do things you like to do.
Having to drop everything and race to the bathroom can disrupt your life.
And if you leak, even if it’s only a little bit, it can be embarrassing.
It can be caused by a bladder infection, stress, or another medical problem.
Some brain problems, like Parkinson’s disease or a stroke, can also lead to overactive bladder.
But in many cases, it’s not known what causes it.
An overactive bladder can get better with treatment.
To deal with an overactive bladder, it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily, which cleanses and flushes your system. Drink at least 1 cup per hour.
*Stay away from alcohol, caffeine, carbonated beverages, coffee, chocolate, refined or processed foods, and simple sugars. Chemicals in food, drugs, and impure water have an adverse effect on your bladder.
*If you’re overweight, adopt a healthy weight-loss diet and exercise program to help you lose the excess pounds.
*Don’t delay emptying your bladder. Making sure you urinate every 2-3 waking hours (“voiding by the clock”) can help.
*Don’t use “feminine hygiene sprays,” packaged douches, bubble baths, or tampons, sanitary pads, or toilet paper containing fragrance. The chemicals in these products are potentially irritating.
*Do pelvic exercises like Kegel exercises. These are useful because weak pelvic muscles are often involved in bladder control problems. Daily exercises (5 minutes 3 times a day) can strengthen pelvic muscles and improve bladder control.
*Cantharis is a homeopathic remedy for pain during urination and for frequent urination.
*Eat plenty of raw foods.
*Consider fasting and fresh juicing.
*Practice good personal hygiene.
