A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Uterine Prolapse
I had a question the other day about uterine prolapse.
Uterine prolapse develops when you lose your muscular support for your uterus.
Your uterus is normally held in place by your pelvic muscles and ligaments.
When these muscles become weakened or injured, uterine prolapse can occur.
In mild cases, a portion of your uterus descends into the top of your vagina.
In more serious cases, your uterus may even protrude through your vaginal opening and your bladder may bulge into the front wall of your vagina.
In some instances, your rectum may bulge into the back wall of your vagina.
Symptoms of a prolapsed uterus can include backache, abdominal discomfort, a feeling of heaviness, and urinary incontinence, especially stress incontinence (the involuntary passage of urine when straining, sneezing, or otherwise putting pressure on your abdomen).
Other symptoms can be excessive menstrual bleeding, abnormal vaginal discharge or bleeding, painful intercourse, and constipation.
However, you may not have any symptoms at all.
Women who’ve borne several children and/or who’ve gone through difficult and prolonged labor are more prone to prolapse.
Other things increasing the likelihood of uterine prolapse include obesity, uterine cancer, diabetes, chronic bronchitis, asthma, heavy lifting or straining (especially if your pelvic muscles are already weakened), and a uterus that’s tilted toward the back of your body.
To deal with uterine prolapse, it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 10 cups of purified water daily to keep hydrated and flush toxins, whether thirsty or not. Add Performance for electrolytes.
*Buchu has anti-inflammatory properties and helps control bladder problems.
*Cranberry helps bladder function and helps prevent urge incontinence. It can be taken in capsule form. Pure, unsweetened cranberry juice is good also.
*Damiana helps provide oxygen to your genital area and balances female hormones.
*Ginger can help with bowel disorders.
*Eat a diet consisting of 75% raw fruits and vegetables plus whole grains like brown rice and millet.
*Use a fiber supplement daily to prevent constipation.
*Don’t strain during bowel movements or urination.
*Try to achieve or maintain a normal weight.
*Doing Kegel exercises to tone your pelvic floor muscles when prolapse is beginning may prevent the condition from getting worse.
*If the prolapse causes no symptoms, no treatment is needed, other than perhaps adopting an exercise program designed for the individual problem and situation.
*Natural progesterone replacement may be more beneficial than estrogen therapy.
*A vaginal device can be inserted to hold your uterus in place. This approach can have undesirable results, however. It can interfere with sexual intercourse and may also cause an irritating discharge with an unpleasant odor and even infection.
