Women's Health

As women get older some of the body systems do not work as well as they once did. For instance hot and cold flashes as well as bladder problems seem to be fairly common. Many women also face osteoporosis. In order to help avoid these problems, it is imperative to keep the bladder and thyroid healthy, as well as keep your bones strong to prevent breakage.

It is estimated that 25% of adults in the United States are affected by bladder control problems. Women account for more than 60% of those that are diagnosed. Most troubling is that most women with voiding symptoms of frequency and urgency do not have bladder infections at all, but rather have chronic lower urinary tract inflammation. Voiding symptoms generate countless office visits, urine culture and sensitivity lab testing, and many prescriptions for antibiotics.
