Description

Heal Pelvic Pain: The Proven Stretching, Strengthening and Nutrition Program for Relieving Pain, Incontinence, I.B.S. and other Symptoms without Surgery offers readers relief and recovery for pelvic floor disorders through a program of strengthening, stretching and relaxation exercises, massage techniques, nutritional basics, and self-care therapies—without drugs or surgery.

The book provides two different exercise programs. One addresses the pain syndromes related to urinary, bowel, or sexual dysfunction —including incontinence, irritable bowel syndrome, urinary and/or bowel frequency, urgency or retention, pudendal neuralgia, prostatitis, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, and more. The other program addresses pelvic floor muscle weakness and poor coordination resulting in incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and/or decreased sexual response. The book is easy to read and use, and offers photos of all of the exercises and massage techniques guide readers every step of the way.

Here’s what readers will find in the book:
•Programs that can ease the pain and discomfort of bladder, bowel and/or sexual dysfunction without surgery or drugs
•A way to relieve pain in an intimate area
•Methods for enhancing sex life well into the elderly years
•Tips for strengthening the pelvis before, during, and after pregnancy
•A muscle-strengthening regimen that boosts sexual pleasure, eliminates incontinence, increases the body’s core strength and pelvic stability.
•Guidelines on foods and beverages that ease discomfort and assist in bladder and bowel disorders
•Suggestions for stress- and pain-reducing home spa treatments
•Patient testimonials
•A comprehensive resource guide.

The book empowers readers with a “symptoms monitor” to track symptoms and the impacts of pelvic floor disorders on daily life. As the reader goes through the exercise and treatment recommendations, he or she can track improvement and progress on the symptoms monitor.
