I am watching my normal barrage of reality stars and Housewives when I spy an episode where a group of women are working out. The instructor tells them they are going to run a lap around the fitness center to warm up. All the ladies follow but one….the reason? Urinary incontinence. She must not have know that acupuncture helps urinary incontinence.
We women don’t want to talk about it or admit it. However, it is a big issue for many of us. You have a couple of kids and all of a sudden, you get a little trickle of urine when you laugh or sneeze. You have to start wearing a mini pad or there is trouble. Western medicine doesn’t offer too many good solutions, other that the never ceasing crunch of Kegel exercises or sling surgery. So is it possible that acupuncture helps urinary incontinence?
Research Shows Acupuncture Helps Urinary Incontinence
Chinese researches took two groups of women with stress urinary incontinence. Both groups practiced Kegel exercises (those pelvic floor crunches). One group also received acupuncture. The results were startling. There was 70% improvement from the control group and 93.3% improvement from the women who had the acupuncture. The points used are called the Baliao points are are ones that stimulate the kidney, regulate the bladder and urination, and stimulate local muscles.
