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
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.
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!
Nutmeg for Overactive Bladder and Stress Incontinence:
I am shocked to say it absolutely worked. I went to the store and bought some nutmeg. Ate a little on the way home and nearly immediately it stopped my nearly constant urge to use the restroom. Amazing.
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.

I am looking for a herbal cure for protein in urine. I know there is a cure but doctors don't want you to know about it. I am sick of their meds. They make things worse sometimes.

I tried the pumpkin seed oil caps for a few weeks for a leaky bladder and did not notice a difference at all. I sure hate having this issue. Always nervous when out & about and wondering where is the nearest restroom, if there is one.
Pumpkin Seed Oil
My bladder leaking was getting worse from light leaking to a sudden flood. I tried nutmeg and it helped a bit but not much. I now take pumpkin seed oil - 2 1000 mg capsules a day and no leaks at all. I hope this helps someone else.
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 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. I am having this problem since long but now I am getting infections because of spraying urine here and there and on to my lady parts. Is there any other lady that experiences the same? And is there any cure for it?

My problem is unusual in that I have no pain or frequent urination, but first urine of the day smells strange and is cloudy. One other time this happened and the doctor put me on antibiotics. What's new? I feel fine, have tried lots of natural cures and good eating, but bad urine in the morning is still there. Any ideas?
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!
