Why you should not ignore bladder pain

by Jonathan Landsman

(NaturalNews) Over 200 million people (worldwide) suffer with some kind of bladder pain or control issues. Technically, not a disease, this often embarrassing health condition is associated with a sudden urge to urinate - that's difficult to control; an involuntary loss of urine; frequent urination - usually more than 8 times in 24 hours and night time urination - more than 2 times per night.

Conventionally speaking, to eliminate bladder disorders, doctors love to prescribe drugs - which have nasty side effects like, dry mouth, constipation, blurred vision and a rapid heartbeat. For best results, learn how to naturally eliminate bladder problems without toxic chemicals.

What are the causes of bladder control problems?

Most medical professionals would agree - getting older does not put you at greater risk for bladder issues. A healthy bladder is well-regulated by the interactions between the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and organs of the lower urinary tract (bladder, urethra, pelvic floor muscles). Obviously, if you suffer from any neurological disorders or weakness within the abdominal area - your bladder function may become a problem.

Those people at greatest risk for bladder control issues include: spinal cord injuries, Parkinson's disease, strokes, multiple sclerosis, pregnancy and vaginal deliveries, obesity or poor dietary choices. Generally speaking, if you take better care of yourself - bladder pain can be resolved.

Lifestyle changes that can help reduce your symptoms and pain

It's widely known that heavier people place themselves at greater risk for urinary incontinence. So, naturally, maintaining a healthy body weight by eating lots of plant-based, chemical free (organic) food is a great way to shed unwanted (excess) body weight. If you want to eat animal foods - be sure to buy naturally raised, 100% grass-fed beef and keep your portion to around 2 to 4 ounces per day. The main point here is to avoid artificial sweeteners, chemical preservatives, hormones and antibiotics that can disturb nerve and muscle function.

If you suffer from bladder problems - try becoming more conscious of your fluid intake. Most health experts will tell you to drink half your body weight in ounces of pure, unpolluted water. But, to keep from waking up in the middle of the night, don't drink any liquids at least 3 hours before bed time. And, of course, try to avoid caffeine and alcohol which can over-stimulate the bladder.
