Losing weight in 2019?

Being overweight has a direct relationship with loss of urine and faeces. If you are overweight, a too high pressure will occur faster in the abdominal cavity. This is especially the case with lifting, coughing, sneezing and stooping. The increasing pressure in your abdominal cavity searches for the path of least resistance and that is your pelvic floor. Your bladder is pushed downwards, your pelvic floor is heavily loaded with a loss of urine.

Last year a study was published in which it was demonstrated that losing 5 kilos already has a positive influence on the loss of stool. As a result of being overweight and the resulting increase in abdominal pressure, you also have an increased chance of contracting the bladder, uterus and intestines.

In short, reasons enough to make another attempt to lose weight!

Stop smoking in 2019?

We all know that smoking is bad for your health; you can get lung cancer, bladder cancer etc.

Less known is that smoking influences the elasticity, elasticity of the connective tissue in your body. The influence of nicotine also does not ignore the connective tissue in your pelvic floor and the bonds that anchor your internal organs, such as your bladder and uterus.

Smokers cough more: this creates more pressure increase in your pelvic floor with an increased chance of getting gynecological subsidence.

If you smoke more than a pack of cigarettes a day, research has shown that you will transition on average two years earlier; this also means that the hormonal nutrition of your pelvic floor, and therefore the elasticity, decreases faster.

Healthier eating and drinking in 2019?

Constipation, hard stools is an important cause for getting a sag. Hard pressing places a heavy load on your pelvic floor and the bands on which your organs are anchored in the pelvis.

More dietary fiber and good drinking ensures softer stools. The stomach, intestinal and liver foundation has developed a very useful dietary fiber test. Recommended!

More exercise has a positive influence on the function of your pelvic floor, makes the tires and tendon plates firmer; also in your pelvic floor!

And finally: train your pelvic floor daily; a registered pelvic physiotherapist can teach you an up-to-date exercise schedule, even if you have no complaints: prevention is half the battle.
