“It’s normal at your age” is the message that many people get about urinary incontinence. Yet, for the women who suffer from it, this condition is embarrassing and hard to talk about. Urinary incontinence affects up to 55% of women over 60, decreases quality of life and can lead to isolation, depression and a loss of independence. However, it can be prevented, treated and even cured without medication or surgery. In a clear, precise and non-judgemental way, the first part of this guide dispenses with taboos and describes the different types of incontinence and its related factors. The second part includes a 12-week home-based exercise program. These scientifically and clinically validated exercises have shown to be very effective at treating this difficult condition. In fact, up to 85% of women who practise the techniques to control urinary urgency as well as the pelvic floor exercises described in this book are able to resolve or significantly reduce their incontinence symptoms.
