Urinary & Bladder Problems (also known as incontinence) is a condition where the body releases (or leaks) urine involuntarily. It tends to affect a larger percent of women than men. There are a number of different types of incontinence, each with its own cause, but in most cases there is an explanation that can be pinpointed.
In many cases, other health issues in the body are the origin. These include diabetes, enlarged prostate, and brain disorders (M.S., Parkinson’s disease, strokes). A series of tests can determine the cause as well as the course of treatment. A simple issue that helps the health of the bladder function as well as the irritation levels in the urinary tract is the pH of the intercellular fluids in those tissue structures. Often a low pH (too acidic, or not alkaline enough) can be corrected easily and will improve symptoms dramatically.
Acupuncture is relevant and gives quick improvement, as well. The point sites we choose are on the lower abdomen, as well as the lower back. There will be other point sites, as well. The treatment is gentle, relaxing, and painless. It is important to address other health concerns as well, and acupuncture is always holistic in its approach.
