“It’s time to start the conversation. We need to encourage people to discuss their bladder control problems with their physician and to seek help. Millions do not need to suffer in silence.“ Dr. Peipei Wishnow

Salem, MA (PRWEB) November 14, 2013

Bladder control concerns could be considered epidemic: 200 million suffer worldwide and over 25 million are experiencing challenges in the U.S. Despite the fact that diabetes and other health challenges with similar prevalence get a lot of media attention, little is said about bladder health.

National Bladder Health Week November 11-15, 2013 aims to change that by bringing awareness to the challenges one in three adults between the ages of 30-70 experience. Bladder control concerns cost women alone over 38 billion a year in diagnosis and treatment every year, more than the flu and breast cancer, according to a Parade magazine health report. Yet despite the prevalence, many people suffer in silence and don’t seek treatment.

According to Dr. Peipei Wishnow of Salem, MA-based Interceuticals, maker of an all-natural herbal health bladder control formulation based on Traditional Chinese Medicine principles combined with years of U.S. Scientific testing, “It’s unfortunate that this problem impacts so many people and disrupts their lives. People are concerned about leaving their homes or going to an unfamiliar location where there may not be immediate access to a bathroom. The odd thing is that no one is talking about it! Many are embarrassed by accidents and ashamed to discuss the problem and so they suffer in silence, thinking there is no help.”

Part of the reason people do not seek help may be a sense that it's just a part of getting old or it may be the embarrassment, especially when bladder concerns come on at younger ages, according to Dr. Wishnow. Bladder control concerns are not something you expect to be dealing with in your 30s or 40s! But there are options for most sufferers including behavioral modification techniques such as Kegel exercises, surgery can be effective in some cases, and there are natural solutions such as the BetterWOMAN® and BetterMAN® products, which have helped thousands of sufferers to find relief and regain control over their lives.

Sadly some may never get help and those who do usually wait on average 6 ½ years before seeking treatment. “That’s a long time to suffer from a problem that is disruptive to your life in so many ways,” says Dr. Wishnow. “It’s time to start the conversation. We need to encourage people to discuss their problems with their physician and to seek help. Millions do not need to suffer in silence; there are solutions.“

National Bladder Health Week will bring awareness on the problems that impact millions. Dr. Wishnow hopes that this focus will encourage people to break the silence and finally get help. Interceuticals is offering a free special report "Shattering 3 Myths About Bladder Control" to contribute to the conversation.

Interceuticals is the maker of an all-natural herbal bladder health formulation that blends thousands of years of Traditional Chinese Medicine with proven U.S. science. Formulated by MIT trained scientist, Dr. Peipei Wishnow, BetterWOMAN® and BetterMAN® supplements have helped thousands regain bladder control – and their lives.
