Question: I have a very bad leaking bladder. As I get up from sitting the urine flows. I’m 84 years old..is there anything I can take to help stop this problem? Thanks
Hello, Kegals is always the first recommendation for weak pelvic muscles and doing 50 squeezes multiple times a day will help strengthen those muscles to help control a weak bladder. Making sure you are drinking plenty of fresh, clean water to help prevent any bladder irritation caused by being dehydrated. Switching coffee for an herbal tea can help also. Caffeine stimulates bladder muscles and increases feelings of urgency. Buddha’s Herbs Organic Chamomile Tea is a good substitute.
