My fiance' and I are going to try to start him on a herbal regimen to help treat his OAB. He's been on Rx pills from his doctor but, we want to see if there is an alternative option we can do to help control it and bc he is only 28 years old. We could some recommendations online about some vitamin combinations and herbals ones too. I wanted to start this thread bc I was curious if anyone else had any suggestion to help gain strength to his bladder.
V I would like to find this stuff But can not see to find it via Internet but, it sounds perfect V
Um, I agree, looking at the base line of the constitution of someone, this is the basic step, along with diet. #1. what's going into the body? How does it affect the kidneys and liver? The bladder is one of the last places where toxins are expelled along with the bowels and the skin.
Further do read about the medications side effects and if it can be mixed with certain herbs, botanicals or tinctures of naturopathic remedies.
Tested for diabetes?
Clean up the artificial ingredients in the foodstuffs. Sweenteners, caffeine found in coffee, teas, chocolate/coco? Other diuretics? Carrageenan a toxic additive in foods. (read labels)
Recent studies have found that tumeric / curcumin is a powerful antioxidant, etc. google it. I take turmeric everyday, along with amla powder, cloves, cinnamon mixed in a little water and flax seed oil and swallow it down through a straw chased by water a few times between bites of food. *shrugs* There are many top antioxidants and foods out there. This website cites from medical journals and studies done and presented in short 3 min. videos by Michael Greger, M.D http://www.nutritionfacts.org
Also a warning about Vit. E. do no take the one with d-L. Use the mixed topopherols (alpha, beta mixed with the full spectrum of E). The d-l is fractured/missing some of them and is harmful. (I found this Vit E. info in Suzanne Sommers book Knockout, a book about interviews with doctors who have cured cancers using a mix of alternative and conventional methods. etc. There are lots of tips for healthy natural prevention against toxins.
I hope this helps.Take what you like leave the rest. or just ignore me lol.
Thank you for your input!!
Since I've posted this he's been on a regimen of Multivitamin and Flax Seed Oil, and believe it or not he says it has been helping. It is not AS sufficient as the RX he was taking but, at least he's not getting any chest pain any more!!
He read about taking Magnesium as well so I think he might start taking.
He thinks he has cut back on his sugar but, I argue he has not. I feel he needs to cut out the cookie treat before bed, every night. But he'd say its not e v e r y night. ha
He's not diabetic, his blood sugar levels range normal. Other then the OAB he's a poster boy a good health. 150lbs 6'2"
