Women Talking by Kristin Woolf
Leaking urine! This is way too important NOT to talk about! If you or any woman you know has had to deal with this then you owe it to yourself to read this short article. Pelvic organ prolapse is often a long slow process which frequently leads to dangerous surgery. It is believed that between 50% and 80% of all women will experience some movement of their pelvic organs: bladder, uterus and rectum. This can affect women of all ages. The first symptoms typically are peeing a little when you laugh, cough or sneeze. If this slippage isn't halted, the next symptom could be peeing involuntarily. Next you may experience a bulge in your vagina as the bladder moves ever back and down. In the meantime your gynecologist can recommend only four things: Wait until it gets unmanageable, try a pessary (something which works in only a tiny percent of women), do Kegels (If you can find someone who has a real success story with Kegels stopping leakage of urine I would love to know about it )and pelvic surgery. This surgery, as the internet tells us, very often has catastrophic results.
Imagine how thrilled I was to find a simple and safe process to stabilize and reverse this condition. In fact, I was so impressed that I immediately signed on to be trained as a Whole Woman practitioner. I have completed the Whole Woman training, and am practicing here in Taos, N.M. Just as important as my training, I use the Whole Woman system myself to lead a healthy and active life. Learning the Whole Woman system of posture and exercise, taking your own care into your own hands and relying on your powerful, self healing body, is what Whole Woman is all about. That is why I have opened a practice here in Taos to coach women in reversing the benign, though alarming condition of pelvic organ prolapse.
