Vaginal Weight Training

choco lite

A conservative treatment for an overactive bladder and bladder incontinence is vaginal weight training. This technique is designed to help the pelvis floor muscle become firmer, thicker and broader. The pelvic floor muscles supports most of the organs inside the abdomen and helps to hold the bladder in the correct place, especially when standing in an upright position.

Vaginal weight training is recommended for women who have developed bladder incontinence or an overactive bladder. These are quite common problems for women after they have given birth to 1 or more children. The highest risk of developing bladder incontinence is after the first child is born but giving birth to more children will increase the overall risk of developing bladder problems.

High-impact exercises performed by women increases the shock to the pelvic area. This shock repeated over and over can lead to loss of muscle tone to the pelvic floor muscle. Women at highest risk for bladder problems are gymnasts, softball, volleyball, and basketball players.

Weights have been specifically designed in shape and volume, starting at about 20 grams and gradually increasing in weight until 100 grams have been reached. Small weights are held within the vagina by tightening the muscles of the vagina. This exercise can be done standing or walking.

A series of exercises should be performed for 15 minutes at a time, 2 times a day for 4 to 6 weeks. The weight can be increased gradually over time to increase the strength of the pelvic muscles. It make take several weeks or even months to achieve the desired level of bladder control, but most women experience some improvement soon after starting the exercise routine.

An increase in bladder related problems have been reported for both men and women as age is increased but it is not considered a normal part of the ageing process. Only 15 to 30 percent of people living at home, 60 years of age and older have reported some type of urinary leakage. However, this percent is increased to over 50 percent in nursing home residents.

It is recommended by health care professionals that you drink between 6 and 8 glasses of non-caffeinated, non-carbonated liquids every day. Flushing your bladder with large quantities of fluid will help prevent most of the known bladder problems not to mention the benefit to your digestive system. In addition there are other diet and vitamins products you can take for additional benefits.

Common Vitamins and over the counter products can help with treating Bladder Problem such as Vitamin C, Vitamin A, L-cysteine, Vitamin E, Zinc and Cranberry Juice.

Vitamin C can reduce the risk of developing urinary bladder cancer in smokers and drinkers.

Vitamin A is an important immune system stimulant. DR. Nauss reported a reduced T-cell immune response in patients with a Vitamin A deficiency. Vitamin A deficiency may increase the risk of cancers of the lung, larynx, bladder, esophagus, stomach, colon, rectum and prostate. Vitamin A is stored in the liver and fat cells of the human body and can reach toxic levels. DO NOT take more than the recommended dosage of Vitamin A.

L-cysteine is another immune system stimulant but should always be taken in conjunction with Vitamin C to reduce the risk of developing stone formation in the kidneys and bladder.

Vitamin E accelerates wound healing and aids in the functioning of the immune system.

Zinc also has a profound influence on the body's ability to resist disease.

Cranberry Juice may also help prevent kidney and bladder infections. If you are taking COUMADIN then check with your doctor before using cranberry.

Always consult your doctor before using this information.
