Is there a question you’re too afraid to ask your doctor?
If it has to do with your bladder…
I can guarantee you’re not alone.
Millions of older Americans are DYING to ask about their bladder problems; they’re DESPERATE for help, but too humiliated to mention it.
In a moment, I’ll reveal the best ways to solve common bladder problems — especially those sudden leaks that can practically turn you into a shut-in, afraid to leave home lest you have another “accident.”
But first, a warning: if you DO work up the nerve to ask a doctor for help, BEWARE.
Because this dangerous and potentially deadly approach used by the mainstream is about to expand in a big way…
The “help” you don’t want or need
The feds just signed off on a new generic version of tolterodine(aka Detrol), expanding the use of this “pee drug” to millions of new patients at rock-bottom prices.
But this med has two HUGE problems:
- It doesn’t work very well.
- It packs a MASSIVE hidden risk.
Docs will tell you just the opposite.
They’ll claim it’s about twice as effective as a placebo, give or take, which sounds good…
Until you realize the placebo itself often had a pretty good success rate of between 21 percent and 33 percent!
Even at double that effectiveness, it’s far from a cure.
In real terms, it can mean one fewer leak per day or less.
And as far as safety goes, docs will tell you the only common side effect is dry mouth.
But that’s missing the big picture – and the REAL problem with this and other drugs for bladder control.
It’s an anticholinergic drug, a class of medication that packs TERRIFYING risks for older Americans.
And that’s no exaggeration!
Long-term use of anticholinergics can increase your risk of:
- Stroke by 59 percent
- Death from stroke by 86 percent
- Injury falls by nearly 100 percent
- Cognitive decline by nearly 100 percent
- Dementia by 54 percent
- Alzheimer’s disease by 63 percent
All for a drug that you definitely DON’T need…especially not when you can get results with these three EASY steps to complete control:
Step One: Extra body fat can put pressure on your bladder, leading to those embarrassing leaky moments. Drop a few pounds, and the pressure will ease.
Step Two: Try bladder training. Time yourself between bathroom trips, then work on holding out longer between each one. Many people can turn minutes into hours with just a few weeks of practice.
Step Three: Bladder problems in women can be caused by weaker pelvic floor muscles. Kegel exercise can strengthen those muscles and end those urges. You can find them online or ask a doctor.
