Did You Know?

Women are FAR more likely to deal with issues such as posterior pelvic floor muscle dysfunctions, anal continence (hello childbirth!) and IBS (which affects TWICE as many women as men?)

That the Gut/Brain Axis, which is modulated in large part by the Vagus information super highway is VERY responsive to changes in nutrition, stress management and some surprising exercise strategies?

That medications for conditions like Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease may be good at suppressing symptoms…but lasting relief (and maybe disease remission) comes from evidence based lifestyle strategies? (*not saying don’t take meds, but I am saying…use the evidence to help live better and calm down distressing drivers…and maybe then discuss the need for meds with your dr)

That understanding the coccyx is VITAL for female pelvic health – and there’s so much we can do to make the coccyx calm down with external as well as internal strategies

My latest course, Bowel Health & Women’s Health explores all of this and more.
