Natural ways to control your bladder
Incontinence is something that not many people are willing to speak up about, but it is something that affects a huge amount of women in the country, especially as they get older.
It's nothing to be ashamed of it, nor is it necessarily a healthy worry.
There are many natural preventative methods that work for lots of women, helping them regain their confidence and reach their true feminine potential.
Classic Vitamin D generally promotes good health and bone strength, particularly strengthening the pelvic muscles that control the bladder.
A great way to get this vitamin is through sunlight, but, given the current climate, that isn't always possible.
It can be found in a whole host of nutritional supplements which are also beneficial for a whole host of other health reasons.
Being overweight can be a cause of incontinence, therefore losing a few extra pounds could severely up your chances of staying in control.
Training your bladder is always a great way of maintaining command. A great way to learn skills of patience, tone and strength are through yoga, which is also a fun and easy exercise.
Smoking is thought to weaken your bladder; therefore ditching the fags for good could cut incontinence for life.
Now is the perfect time to give them up - with thousands of other smokers working hard in Stoptober.
Cutting out caffeine
Caffeine is also thought to add to the problem.
If you, like many others, need a tea or warm drink to get you out of bed in the morning, then fear not!
There are lots of herbal teas and drinks available that not only do not contain the dreaded caffeine; they also contain a variety of vitamins that keep you strong and healthy.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
