Resolving Bladder Incontinence
One of the pitfalls of invasive cancer treatment, chemo, radioactive needles, radiation, surgery, and so called immunotherapy, is the collateral damage. One such case involved placement of radioactive needles around a patient’s cancerous prostate. The cancer disappeared for eight years then resurfaced. The collateral damage of the surrounding damaged tissue and bladder incontinence presented a major challenge. Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, natural food based remedies can take years to effect change. This was the case with Roland J. He opted for the radioactive needles and paid the price for it with collateral damage to his bladder and sphincter. Roland was plagued by frequent urination.
Functional anatomy tells us that the urinary bladder and accompanying sphincter are made up of smooth muscle. Smooth muscle derives its tone from natural, food based B‑complex vitamins. Both the valve and bladder become compromised when weakened from radiation exposure. Urinary leakage and urgency are the primary symptoms. Roland was placed on a food based supplement, Cataplex B, to tone up the smooth muscles of the bladder and valve. It took several years before the repair took place but the wait was well worth the investment of time and expense. Roland now experiences much less urgency to urinate and virtually no leakage issues. The key to healing is to define the root cause and address it with natural remedies that are designed to correct the problem. Unfortunately, most healthcare practitioners do not have a broad base of knowledge to be able to connect the dots and the patient winds up with eternal symptomatic treatment.
