Urinary leakage from the bladder includes frequent urging with little flow. Causes in women are generally menopausal problems from lack of estrogen, chronic constipation, weakness from childbirth, or a weak pelvic floor (from sitting too much). There are more women than men suffering from this. Men suffering from this can have an enlarged prostate. Men, see Prostate Problems, BPH Natural Remedies. Other causes of incontinence include prescription drug side effects.
Medical treatment for incontinence can include drugs which dry up body fluids (may cause a myriad of side effects) or act to calm bladder spasms. All drugs treat the symptoms of urinary leakage, not the cause.
Naturally, we want to get to the cause of the urinary incontinence. Also, getting rid of urinary stressors such as tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, and soda pop will go a long way to eliminating urinary problems.
Stress and nervousness is often a cause of urinary incontinence, and herbs and other natural treatments can help. Other treatments can include strengthening the prostate, for men, and addressing hormonal issues during menopause for women. Doing Kegel exercises for at least 3 months can help with pelvic floor weakness.
