Bladder Issue Remedies

Kegels

Posted by Daniel (Europe) on 07/11/2014

Hello, I'm 30 yo male...
A couple of years ago I tried to do some Kegel exercises because I heard that it can boost my sexual performance. But I did Kegel exercises while urinating and I have found out out that after I pass my urine there is a little bit urine leftover somwhere in my urethra...I guess that I did it wrong , I shoudn't do my Kegels while urinating...

So my question is - how can I reverse that?
Do you think that, considering that Kegels straighten pelvic floor muscles, it can help me te reverse this incomplete bladder emptying , but if I do it correctly this time?
Or you recommend something else?

Thank you, regards


Malic Acid

Posted by Joy (Battleground, Wash) on 04/19/2013

Just been reading to find some answers and found a site that talked about MALIC ACID in apple juice and apple cider irritating the bladder and weakening the system supporting it.

They also talked about absorption problems causing vitamin and mineral deficiencies and how they cause hormone imbalance and how the hormone imbalance affects the muscles that hold the bladder in place.

They said APPLES DO NOT CAUSE THIS PROBLEM and encourage eating apples.

Nutmeg for Bladder Control - 1/4 teaspoon with breakfast daily works for me. I put it into an empty gel cap.

Hi Holly. I have had an over active bladder since I went through my changes at age 56. Now I'm going to be 69 yrs young. What I was trying is Chinese Herbs and had Chinese Herbs for my pups'

I then was taking Chinese Herbs from Heaven And Earth amazing results for Bladder and cateracts and never sick. Problem is They were only 57.00 for 400 capsules and they merged with a partner and went up to 249.00 for same amount, which I can't afford now and they would not honor the price for me. I even attribute the success of my pets with many nature cures from here as they lived from 16 1/2 to 19 years young.

Getting back to OAB I have gel caps, but what king of nutmeg do you use.?? nk their is a nutmeg herb that can be used.

I have been on this web site for as long as I can remember and everything works. I posted web pages of natural cure for pets and I have done many that help my dogs kidneys, eyes, teeth etc.

Thank You

This absolutely worked! I was going to the restroom very frequently and found that my urge had no warning. It would come on and then I would have an accident. So I tried the nutmeg and I had immediate results and will be taking it regularly/everyday. I drank the usual amount of water that I would have and though I felt the need, it wasn't overwhelming as it once was, the urge is no longer frequent and I have better control. As mentioned, the results were immediate upon ingesting the grounded nutmeg. Thank you!

REMEDY FOR URINATION WHEN ON TRIP

My elderly great aunt would go to the spice cabinet before going for a ride or shopping where she would be gone for several hours. One time while waiting for her at age 92, I asked her why she went to the spice cabinet all the time when we had to take her someplace she said "I will not have to go to anyone's bathroom anywhere to urinate." She took a half a teaspoon of nutmeg and put in her left hand PALM and lick all of it then drink a small amount of water and that would take care of any urge.

I asked her where she learned that and she said from my grandmother as when she was young they would sell eggs from the horse cart and didn't want to stop for that anywhere. I witnessed that when taking her ANY PLACE THAT SHE NEVER HAD TO GO USE A BATHROOM ANYWHERE. I would say it worked very well for her as she was a very modest lady and never wanted to bother anyone.

Grandma was right. I have been having an on and off leaking problem in the morning when I have my morning coffee. 3 days ago it became a flood. I used 1/8 tsp nutmeg per each 1 cup. By the second day the problem is completely gone. I put tsp powdered cocoa to make the taste milder and some creamer. Thank you so much

My elderly mother suffers with incontinence and get very worried when she has to out or attend any socials. I would like to try the Nutmeg therapy.

How much Ground Nutmeg do you use per cup of water or Glass of water?

Is it safe to take it more than once a day and does it have any side effects?

As she is up several times in the night - can she take it before going to bed?

Many Thanks, Ash

Dear Ashwin,

I take nutmeg in the morning when I know I will be out for the day. It keeps me from needing so many rest room visits. Having had a number of children I have a prolapse problem and the nutmeg really seems to help me with that. I am not sure exactly what it is doing though I have scoured my herb books looking for answers. Nutmeg is just not a commonly used herb.

For that reason, I only use it as needed. 1/4 teaspoon in the morning seems to be enough for me for 24 hours.

I have been able to ascertain that it is contraindicated in pregnancy. (Obviously that is not an issue for your mother, just mentioning this for others who are reading.)

I don't know that it would need to be taken with a full glass of water - I take it with a few other supplements with a few ounces of water. It seems that taking it with a cup of water at once might defeat the purpose. Though I certainly drink plenty of water all day even when I am out for the day, just not large quantities at once. (I put my nutmeg in a homemade capsule for convenience.)

Regular use of red raspberry leaf tea is also helpful for toning the bladder if you drink a cup or two each day. I just get lazy about this and then use nutmeg.

I would not try more than 1/4 teaspoon a day and see how that does. If you mother is on the petite side, even 1/8 teaspoon may be enough.

Also, look for a list of diuretic foods and avoid those on days going out. Oatmeal is a great diuretic. I do not eat it on days I plan to be gone all day. I notice that oatmeal for breakfast makes me and my younger children need more frequent restroom visits. I think that is great, unless we are away from home for the day and multiple potty stops would be inconvenient.

I have not noticed any side effects personally.

If you try it for your mother, let us know how it works for her!

Thanks!

Relative to "protein in urine" problem... Are you speaaking of increased creatine levels which are evidence of kidney failure? In that case, creatine is merely a marker to the back up of toxic material in the system and is demonstrating the severity of the kidney failure. I'm thinking that maybe you are refering to some other issue. If so could you be more specific on what proteins you are speaking of and the medical diagnosis by the doctors you are refering to. And symptoms you are having.

Stachys ' lavandulifolia':.

I've been suffering from bladder pain almost my whole life. All of a sudden a friend of mine gave me some herbal tea and insist me to use it, I refused to take it because I don't drink anything even water unless I have to.

I don't know exactly what made me add it to tea and drink it, and after using it I yet didn't realize that it made me don't feel my bladder anymore that bothered me a lot during the day, right after drinking anything, while peeing and when I was sleeping at nights ( I woke up 3/4 times per night to go to bathroom even when my bladder was not full it forced me to go bathroom and have a painful urination ).

Anyway, I'm using it almost everyday, and here are the results that I never experienced in my life with anything else before:

  • I don't feel my bladder anymore even if it is full.
  • I can have a easy urination, with comfort and without feeling that it is getting blocked in my urethra.
  • I can sleep much better at nights without having urge to go to bathroom ( I only wake up once ).
  • I can hold myself without feeling pain for a very longer durations.

I like the scent it gives to tea, you can have it without tea, I guess it can make even better results if you take it solo.

I hope it helps you all with bladder issues, it is a relief in my life and I seriously like it and recommend it to everybody, not only people with bladder issues, but anyone who wants to enjoy an amazing herbal tea. you should prepare it exactly how you prepare tea.

I take two glass mixed with tea everyday.

Make sure to not add sugar or other sweetener to make best results , but I take dates with it myself :-) ( with cookies it was still effective but not as much as I took it with dates ). I don't think many people are aware of it yet, but I hope everyone will.

I'm not sure where you can find it, as I'm living in Iran, you can find it at most of the herbal stores, they call it something like " mountain tea ( as it's found in mountains ) " which I know, no one else in the world calls it under this name..

Just to clarify, you can drink it alone or you can mix it with tea, tea is not an essential at all, so please forget about tea itself, I'm not talking about tea here at all, but what helped me was stachys ' lavandulifolia'.

First of all, please stop drinking cola or any other acidic-alcoholic beverages, smoking and if you were going to drink orange juice, don't forget to dilute it with water or mix it with " sweet lemon " to make a wonderful drink, do the same with any other acidic drinks - if they are organic and beneficial don't forget to " dilute " with water, and if it's not, you should avoid them as much as possible.

But what you must look for is called stachys and its species is ' lavandulifolia' and so important to find the right species, I have no idea about the other species, so I hope Earth Clinic just correct the headline from stachys to stachys ' lavandulifolia' to prevent any misconceptions.

You can make it exactly the same way as you make tea, boil the water and when water started boiling lower the heat just in case of keeping the water hot, put stachys ' lavandulifolia' in water and let it rest for at least 15 minutes while the water remains hot ( but not still boiling ), then it's ready to drink.

Wish I could send some of it to you, I hope you find it and try it and leave the feedback here for rest, in need of help.

Kind regards.

Stream Abnormalities

i am 30 year old female and I noticed that I have two or three urine stream and my urine steam sprays down to my legs.

This is a question for TED, BILL or MAMA to many, I have already posted it but I guess no one knows the answer. I am 26 year old female. The problem is I do not have a straight stream of urine. The stream is either sprayed or double. I got checked with a urologist, did urodynamic study but everything was normal. Does any one knows about any cause causing it. I have otherwise free flow so a stricture is ruled out too.

Dear Sa,

I had hoped someone with the same difficulty (and cured of it) would have had some thoughts for you. I think it is a good sign that doctors have not found anything they are concerned about, though it is frustrating to be left with no solution. I will suggest few things that I would try. First of all, if you don't do them already, try Kegal exercises. All ladies should be doing them anyway, and it might stregthen things up. You should work up to 100 per day. It won't hurt and might help. If your pelvic floor is relaxed or lacking tone, and this causes the problem, this could help.

Also, there are two herbs that are especially indicated for bladder issues. They can be helpful to tone the bladder, among other bladder difficulties. These herbs are cornsilk and Uva Ursi. You could make a tea or take supplements with these things. (With the Uva Ursi, one herbalist says you should take it with marshmallow root. ) Even if you don't find anyone using these herbs for your particular difficulty, because they are so helpful for a variety of bladder conditions, it would be worth a try. I was taking Red Raspberry for many months for pregnancy and found it helped prolapsed bladder very much. Herbs often help quickly, but sometimes need a good amount of time to bring healing. I would give it a few months before giving up if you should try one or the other. Neither herb is recommended in pregnancy and both are diuretic, just so you know. If you decide to go the tea route, take a least a pint of tea a day. If you take supplements, take whatever is recommended on the supplement you buy.

For the more immediate difficulty this is causing to you skin, I would look into getting a peri bottle. They are very inexpensive and so helpful for cleaning. Many hospitals give them to ladies healing after birth. After emptying your bladder, you use the peri bottle of water to rinse yourself (and then pat dry with toilet paper). You can add a couple of drops of lavender essential oil to the bottle to aid in healing. Overnight you might use coconut oil topically to reduce/heal irritation to your skin.

Please let us know what you find that helps you!

I have something called Nephorosis of the left kidney, it affects my urine flow. Its quite common, and I may have been born with it, but it gave me no problems until I got in to my twenties. I am now 54, go to the Dr's and get checked out to find what the cause is, I was putting mine down to the 'Change' it wasn't, but that aggravated it big time!! ( What helped me in the end was seeing a Herbalist, as the Hospital and drugs were no help at all and made me feel ill. I am sorry but I can't remember what the Herbalist gave me, the plant grows evry where in the UK, it trails up walls and fences, and the root is used, dried as a tea. I found this out after a few expensive outings to the Herbalist, and it was growing all over my back yard!!! Lol I will look on-line and see if I can find the name, but any good herbalist should know what it is. It's got white trumpet shaped flowers about 2 inches long, and heart shaped leaves, and I think the nick name for it is 'Old Father Time' as you can't get rid of it! Hope this helps.

Dear Sa,

I am seeing some great feedback and ideas from Kt and Andrea... I was thinking about what Kt said.. The possiblity of stones. While I was doing dishes, I was thinking about it... As it relates to my sink... When little pieces of grit from my water start to collect on the screen of my faucet, the water comes out spraying at worst, or at least not like the normal stream I get from the faucet. So, stones may be a likely cause.

The cornsilk, marshmallow, and uva ursi that I mentioned before as being good to tone the bladder, are also all "lithotriptics" meaning they are herbs used to dissolve and discharge urinary and gall stones. So, those herbs may help if you have stones. You may end up finding an herbal bladder or kidney formula with all of those and some other good herbs (like Gravel Root, Parsley, Horsetail). By the way, when using cornsik, please be sure to get organic because of all the GMO corn. (All information in this paragraph is gleaned from Philip Fritchey's book, Practical Herbalism; one of my favorites! )

Another thought is that, if it is stones, Apple Cider Vineger might be of help. (It is good for lots of things and is a good all around thing to add to your life. ) You might read around on the Kidney Stones page for lots of helpful information on that.

Plenty of water or hebal tea daily is important for everyone, espeically when there are bladder and kidney troubles.

Please keep us posted, I will be anxious to hear what helps you.

Sa, the abnormal stream was awhile before I started to experience the pain. It's been so long ago, it's hard to remember exactly. I know the pain got pretty bad and I could hardly walk, getting up in the middle of the night to go. Before I passed the one that ripped my ureter I had been having "trickles" no good flow. I later learned I had been eating too much spinach. I'm slow and piecemeal and my time is running out... Spinach contains oxalic acid... I just need to make sure I get adequate magnesium before ingesting spinach. Be aware that chocolate contains oxalic acid too.

Urine is sterile and does not cause infections in any way. Bladder Infections are in the same place the urine comes out. Fecal matter from wiping the wrong way or bacteria from intercourse (not nurinating before and after) can cause it. But seriously? Pee is sterile...

Strong Smelling, Cloudy Urine

Question for Ted;

My husband just got diagnosed for possibility of urethritis; an infection of the urethra (the tube exiting from the bladder). it is caused by germs that may be spread through sexual contact. he noticed spots looked like blood in his underwear and went to doctor right away. he only noticed when pee, in the beginning, would feel a little discomfort. After got it going, the discomfort would go away. The pee had trace of blood. We haven't had intercourse for over a month. We are in our mid 50s. So I don't think it is from me. He is too busy with the work. Doctor needs to do a few more tests with his urine. At the meantime what should he do? I've followed Earth Clinic for awhile and try many of your remedies for different ailments. Some work some don't. So I'm not stranger to the site. Thanks.

A few years ago I began making up my own capsules. I have crohn's disease, and I knew that turmeric helped with that. I had been buying the capsules of turmeric from wal-mart. Didn't get any results. I bought organic turmeric powder from a local health food store and some organic, cold pressed coconut oil. In a very thick stainless steel pan, over low heat, I heat up the pan till its hot enough to melt the coconut oil. Turn off the heat and put a couple spoonfuls of coconut oil in pan. Let it melt, add a couple heaping spoonfuls of turmeric powder and stir it up. I then use a BD luer lok syring, plastic, no needle. I fill my size "0" vgel capsules with this mixture and keep them in the fridge. I take 6 of these capsules a day and I feel great. It helps with bloating and a general all over feeling of well being.

Hubby at one point had blood in his urine. Went to the doc and they did a ct scan and found a suspicious spot on his bladder. We then asked for a referral to Stanford for follow up. That appointment was about a month later. Meanwhile, I began giving him 12 capsules of my turmeric/coconut oil a day. When we went to our appointment at Stanford for his test where they inserted a lighted flexible tube into his penis (ultrasound I think), that test showed that there was no longer any spot and the blood in his urine had long been gone before that as well. I swear by turmeric taken in this way.

In January I was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst, in May with chronic polypoid cystitis of the bladder. I had general discomfort throughout my abdomen, flank and pelvic area- not sure what condition was causing what pain. Also had what I believe was arthritic pain in my hip. Only remedy for polypoid cystitis that doctor recommended was painkillers- I declined- or ibuprofen, which I did not want to take on a regular basis. Did some reserch on natural anti-inflammatories, and found lots of info on turmeric. I just went to my local drug store, and bought turmeric capsules, I think they are 500 mg. I started taking 2 pills 2x a day, for a couple of days, then decreased to 2 pills 1x a day, and after just a week or so I stopped taking them altogether. Amazing, but all of my aches and pains disappearred! No bladder pain- no flank pain- no hip pain! If I feel a twinge of anything, I take 2 turmeric, and that does the trick. I am hooked!

What did you use for the serious ovarian cyst growth? Did the turmeric get rid of it for you? Thanks.
