Always running to find the next toilet?
Or fine during the day but waking up several times during the night?
In Chinese medicine, different underlying problems can cause bladder leakage – so the exact presentation is important. For example:
If the reason is a (benign) enlarged prostate, Damp is often the culprit. Damp bloats things up and partially blocks them
After birth: structures are weakened; Qi (energy) is too deficient to hold structures in place
Menopause: often a deficiency of either Yin or Yang
In any case: have your sugar levels checked; avoid: toxins (i.e. coffee, alcohol, smoking), heavy lifting, constipation; and do your pelvic floor exercises (i.e. Kegel exercises); and of course: go and get acupuncture and herbs! 😊
