I was so delighted to interview Carolyn Vandyken on my
Hunters Bay Radio Show. I thanked her for Just Showing Up
and creating change in the world and educating people about
pelvic floor health. Here’s what she shared:
Most of us ignore our pelvic floor throughout our life span. It’s not that we
want to, we’re just not told about pelvic health. It’s a bit of a taboo subject,
but it shouldn’t be. We all own pelvic floors—men and women—and we are all affected by what is happening with those muscles.
They can be too tight and cause painful periods, intercourse and all sorts
of problems. They may be too weak and cause incontinence (leaking urine
or bowel issues). Statistically at this point, 1 in 2 of us end our life in diapers.
I must repeat: If you don’t think this is important information;
1 in 2 people, in their senior years, end up in diapers.
I personally would like to avoid that if possible!
And there are things we can do throughout our lives to change that!
Carolyn agrees: Completely avoidable!! 90% of incontinence can be easily
cured with some simple exercises. They’re not all kegels. Remember I said
tension is a problem, so often we have to learn to relax those muscles.
I want to share this information with everyone everywhere.
I also interviewed Carolyn on my ROGERStv Show. So many issues teens,
women and men have are avoidable or curable!
I encourage everyone with issues or learn prevention. Your pelvic floor
is very important and needs attention. Did you know it has five functions?
Learn and be healthy!
Take good care of your pelvic floor!
