Take back control of your Bladder

Take back control of your Bladder

Do you want to end your bladder problems today?

ARE YOU TIRED of feeling frustrated, irritated or embarrassed at the frequency you need to go to the toilet?

Or perhaps you can’t even make it to the bathroom in time? Why do you need to keep going to the loo? You could have a condition known as ‘overactive bladder’.

An overactive bladder is a condition where the bladder muscles contract involuntarily when filling with urine. The muscle contractions are often without any warning and someone with an overactive bladder cannot control these muscle contractions. The result is an involuntary loss of urine.

What can be done to help treat my overactive bladder

There are some simple things you can do to help - for instance some people find it helpful to restrict the amount they drink (especially caffeine and alcohol) to control bladder contractions.

Research has now identified a group of 5 key herbs and 2 amino acids which can help to treat the symptoms of an overactive bladder and promote a healthy urinary tract.

Alpinia oxyphylla, Cornus officinalis and Schizandra chinensis are herbs which have been used for enturies in China in a variety of formulas prescribed by herbalists for treating problems with the urinary tract, which include frequent urination, urgent urination and incontinence. They have no known side effects are safe to take with other medication.

How your bladder works

Your body absorbs liquids which are filtered by your kidneys to separate waste from the elements your body needs. The waste products from your body’s fluids are turned into urine and stored in the bladder. Urine leaves the body through the urethra, which is kept shut by the sphincter muscles.

Once your bladder becomes full, the brain signals the sphincter muscles to relax, allowing urine to pass out through the urethra. An overactive bladder means you lose control of your bladder muscles and therefore unable to control when urine is released.
