Joy and Ted were in a tizzy when I first met them because their live-in parent, Frank, had become shut-in with a weak bladder and had been diagnosed with
overactive bladder problems. They were concerned for his well-being but there was a bigger problem.
Joy and Ted were distraught and at each other’s throats, ready for divorce if a solution to this weak bladder could not be found. Frank wouldn’t use any bladder control products, and he was leaking all over his pants, the furniture, the floors and the window sill of his bedroom.
Frank had such a severe problem with overactive bladder, he had such a weak bladder, that he couldn’t get to the bathroom quick enough to avoid an accident and he was too obese to use a urinal. His solution to his weak bladder was to “hang it out the window” but it wouldn’t make it all the way out the window. Instead, he dribbled on the window sill.
Imagine the stink seeping into the rest of the house from that bedroom because of an overactive bladder. Joy and Terry had tried the medical route but neither bladder control medications for overactive bladder nor for men with prostate problems were helping.
A friend sent them to the website, www.bladderfitness.com and after a quick read through some of the bladder control information and watching some of the overactive bladder control videos, Joy and Ted started their own bladder training program at home for Frank.
Now, life is fun again. Frank no longer has a weak bladder. He doesn’t need any other bladder control products or medications for weak bladder because he learned some simple tricks to control overactive bladder. Now they are all going out as a family again, entertaining friends again and enjoying life the way they used to.
Over Active Bladder No More
Overactive bladder, comes by different names, weak bladder, irritable bladder and others. Iit can be brought on by several different causes but one thing stands out as similar in all cases: people with overactive bladder can all be helped with a bladder training program.
Overactive bladder, regardless of the cause, gets worse over time because of the toileting habits people develop to try to control the problem. People who are worried about overactive bladder accidents, develop strategies to (they think) prevent those accidents. This usually means they try running to the bathroom at the first hint of an “urge” to urinate. Little do they realize this strategy worsens their bladder problem over time.
A bladder control program teaches some simple bladder control tricks to calm down that “urge” from an overactive bladder. Once you learn to “make the urge go away” and practice it daily, your overactive bladder learns to calm down at a simple thought command.
By learning to go to the bathroom after the “urge” has passed, people quickly regain control so they no longer need to use bladder control products like protective pads and bladder control medications.
Using the simple bladder training program discussed at the blog www.bladderfitness.com , you’ll quickly regain bladder control from a weak bladder. Rather than turning to bladder control products like protective pads, do yourself a favor and watch the free bladder control videos or download their simple ebook and strengthen your weak bladder. You’ll be glad you did.
