This sensitive issue is usually not discussed with friends out loud over a cup of coffee. There is an opinion that such cases are rare. Many women consider the situation to be exceptional. But, according to medical research and statistics, about 45% of women over 40 around the world face this problem.
The fact is that with age, the female body accumulates a number of factors that contribute to this unpleasant nuance:
- features of the anatomical structure of the female body;
- childbirth and labor complications;
- age-related hormonal changes in the body;
- lack of physical activity and weakened muscle tone;
- unhealthy diet;
- diabetes mellitus;
- stress factor.
If you find yourself in these statistics, first of all, consultation with specialized doctors is required.
Even if nothing hurts, once a year it is advisable to periodically visit a doctor and take care of yourself and your body.
At any age, it is desirable to maintain physical activity, exercise and sports. But a more fragile organism makes us vulnerable – and therefore it is important to carefully select the types of load and exercise complexes.
One of the most optimal sports at an older age is swimming. Gives good stress to the heart muscle and provides the desired aerobic activity. Water resistance works perfectly on all muscle groups, including the pelvic floor muscles, which strengthen the bladder. At the same time, joints and bones are not injured. In addition, swimming can help relieve anxiety and improve mood, which is very important during this difficult period.
The difference between Pilates and other types of physical exercise is that the exercises are necessarily performed slowly, measuredly and smoothly. Pilates virtually eliminates the risk of injury during training. At the same time, the main goal of Pilates is to teach you to feel your body, every part of it, every muscle (and a group of muscles responsible for the work of the bladder). The technique is based on exercises that allow you to develop flexibility and mobility, to strengthen the transverse and rectus abdominal muscles.
Outdoor Nordic walking
An interesting fact – in Finland, Sweden, Norway, where they go skiing in winter and imitate skiing in summer and practice Scandinavian walking, women are much less likely to face this problem (compared to the USA and Canada). Skiing in winter and Nordic walking in summer optimally tone the pelvic and abdominal muscles involved in bladder function.
Proper nutrition and drinking regime
The first thing that comes to mind in such a situation is to reduce the amount of fluid consumed. But this is an absolutely wrong decision. If you don’t drink enough, your urine will be more concentrated, which will inevitably cause much more irritation to your bladder. In addition, drinking too little water can lead to dehydration. Be sure to drink plenty of clean water, but in small portions. The volume of fluid entering the body should be between 1.5 and 2 liters per day.
Too salty foods, hot seasonings and spices are best excluded from the diet. Salt causes fluid retention in the body. For the same reason, you need to stop eating pickled, fermented, smoked foods and fast food: they are traditionally high in salt, spices and chemical additives.
Next, you need to revise your diet and exclude acidic foods from it: citrus fruits, tomatoes and tomato sauces, sorrel. It is also advisable to limit protein intake: excessive intake of protein products has a pronounced diuretic effect.
Exclude from the diet:
- pickles and marinades;
- smoked meats;
- hot spices;
- chocolate and caffeinated drinks
It is also worth consulting with a specialist about taking special herbal preparations and herbal dietary supplements.
