Overactive Bladder Treatment

Overactive bladder is a relatively unexplored syndrome that can affect people of any age. While some possible causes are known for overactive bladder, there is still much speculation as to what really causes this condition and how it can be treated in the best way.

The term ‘overactive bladder’ is pretty self explanatory but this condition includes more than one symptom. Among symptoms of overactive bladder are urgent, excessive urinating, the need to go more at night, and urinating before reaching a bathroom. The cause for overactive bladder that is most accepted by doctors is overactive muscle movement in the bladder area.

There are natural medications that can help strengthen your bladder muscles while also having a calming effect on the bladder. In the natural treatment I recommend below, a combination of lipid-free pumpkin seed extract as well as soy germ extract is used to help maintain a healthy bladder.

There are many contributing factors that may lead to the onset of overactive bladder. In most instances, this situation occurs as a direct result of spasms within the bladder. The spasms are directly associated with the muscles that are part of the bladder.

Usually older adults and women suffer from the problem of overactive bladder but sometimes younger folks may also suffer from this problem. This problem is very embarrassing but by the help of some natural treatments and herbal treatments natural resistance may be increased.

The Causes

Medical experts have not yet pinpointed the reason why people suffer from overactive bladder syndrome. This does not mean, however, that there are no treatments for this condition. Often times, caffeine worsens the symptoms, so if you think you have it, try abstaining from coffee, tea, cola, or other caffeine-rich drinks for a week.

Other therapies include:

o Biofeedback: Used in conjunction with Kegel exercises, biofeedback helps people gain awareness and control of their pelvic muscles.

o Pelvic floor electrical stimulation: (biofeedback) Mild electrical pulses stimulate muscle contractions. Should be done in conjunction with Kegel exercises.

o Sacral Nerve Stimulation

Overactive bladder (urinary incontinence) is a result of urine leaking out because of muscle spasms in the bladder or urinary tube. Your bladder is used to store urine until you have to go to the washroom. When the bladder is full the muscles will contract and the urine flows into the urethra tube.

Be warned though that if you have any overactive bladder symptoms make sure to call for you doctor. Ask to help understanding bladder function and what factors may cause it going overactive. Do check with your doctor when thinking about treating that bladder with any home remedies for overactive bladder.

The first thing you should look for it to see if the medication or supplement has been clinically tested. If a product has not been examined in clinical tests, you should probably stay away from it. Though it may be a good product, you can easily find one that has been thoroughly tested and be more sure of the results you will see.

Overactive bladder syndrome has three basic symptoms; frequency, urgency, and sudden leakage. One of these symptoms, urgency, is one of the most often complained about symptoms of this condition. The good news is that there are supplements that allow for natural care of overactive bladder and any problems it causes.

Recent surveys have found that about one in six American or European adults suffers from symptoms caused by OAB. With this in mind it is estimated that there are more than 33 million adults in America with OAB which is common in both men and women. OAB increases with age.
