Are you a woman that would you like to experience relief within days from bladder incontinence, frequency, urgency and pain? Would you be interested in stopping needless suffering and embarrassments? How about being able to go shopping & traveling with confidence? If you are one of the millions of people suffering from an over-active bladder you are not alone!

Symptoms include frequent urination, urge incontinence (unintentional loss of urine), and an unstoppable need to urinate. Many people suffering from these symptoms have been forced to wear padding to prevent embarrassing public accidents. The downside to wearing padding in undergarments can be uncomfortably, skin rashes, bladder and kidney infections and urinary track infections. Over time problems such as these can also lead to social, psychological, occupational, domestic, physical, and significant sexual problems.

Professors at Hamilton University have discovered that an amazing 65%, an estimated 35 million, of all women all over the world who are past the child-bearing age of 40, have over active bladders, are incontinent or both. It seems that the most offered alternative is surgery. Surgery can be costly, sometimes ineffective, and carry potential side effects. It is always a good idea to exercise all alternatives before finally deciding on surgery as a course of action. And what about women with whom surgery is not an option because of health related issues?

One common option for treatment to relieve over-active bladder symptoms can be pelvic muscle rehabilitation, this seeks to improve pelvic muscle tone and prevent leakage. There are four types of approaches to this method, which include kegel exercises, biofeedback, vaginal weight training, and pelvic-floor electrical stimulation. Kegel exercises are especially helpful for younger woman in good physical health, these include daily exercises performed thirty to eighty times per day for at least eight weeks. Biofeedback is used in conjunction with the kegel exercises to gain awareness, and help regain control of their pelvic muscles. Another treatment to be used with kegel exercises is the pelvic-floor electrical stimulation, this is done by administering mild electrical pulses to stimulate muscle contractions. The last treatment using pelvic muscle rehabilitation is to insert small weights into the vagina twice daily for fifteen minutes, for four to six weeks, this helps by strengthening the vaginal muscles.

There are behavioral therapies available to people suffering from incontinence, such as bladder training and toilet assistance. Bladder training teaches individuals how to resist the urge to release, and gradually increase the intervals between releases. Toilet assistance uses scheduled and routine toilet breaks, habit encouraging schedules, and prompted releasing to empty the bladder normally to prevent leakage.

If surgery and therapy do not sound appealing to you, there is an at home option available on the market to help with these problems. Many women have discovered a product called Bell Bladder Control Tea. This tea has been found in most cases to help control incontinence and quickly alleviate the burning sensation during urination that is associated with bladder infections. By drinking one cup a day of Bell Bladder Control Tea, you can be on your way to taking back control of your over-active bladder!
