Here at NutriChem, we are fortunate enough to be surrounded by professionals trained in many fields, who all bring their knowledge and expertise to this large practice. From pharmacists to homeopaths, naturopathic doctors to nutritionists to menopause practitioners, NutriChem has many well-trained people with lots of experience to help with whatever health issue is currently concerning you!
A common issue for many women and men has to do with health "below the belt," to put it colloquially. On a near daily basis, NutriChem has clients in the clinics with these concerns, patients in the pharmacy who are filling prescriptions for these concerns, and customers in the store who are looking for nutritional supplements and homeopathic remedies to help with these concerns.
Last week, our Naturopathic Medical Intern Emma Pollon-MacLeod (licence pending) gave an informative webinar called "Mind Over Bladder." The topic was so popular that we thought we'd do a blog post about some of the most common questions she answered from it!
EPM: Luckily, there are many things that you can be doing to help prevent this issue!
The real question is why you're so susceptible to contracting frequent urinary tract infections in the first place. Visit a Naturopathic doctor to help get to the root cause of this issue.
EPM: There are several parts involved in the urination process: kidneys, bladder, brain, hormones, pelvic floor muscles, prostate (for men), even the uterus (in pregnancy). One of the most common causes of urgency and frequency with discomfort is an infection of the urinary tract. If an infection has been ruled out, it could be an issue of weak pelvic floor muscles or hormones. Many women experience urinary symptoms once they enter menopause as estrogen plays a key role in bladder wall strength/contractibility and vaginal health.
It is very important to find the root cause of why you are urinating so often, and treat the cause rather than just the symptoms.
Join a NutriChem clinician as she discusses the most common causes of bladder issues, including urinary tract infections and interstitial cystitis, and what you can do to get relief today.
The information presented in this seminar is for men and women of all ages!
