Gainesville, FL (PRWEB) October 23, 2008
Clear Passage Therapies, a recognized leader in non-surgical treatment for female infertility, launches the new Clear Passage blog this week in honor of National Infertility Awareness Week.
Clinical Director, Belinda Wurn, says, "We hope this blog will become a resource for people to discuss and share advice on infertility, adhesions, and related health issues."
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, an estimated six million women in the US experience infertility, and that number is growing. Ovulation problems account for a big part of female infertility; warning signs include irregular or absent menstruation. Adhesions and blocked fallopian tubes are also major causes of infertility. Fallopian tubes can become blocked by adhesions after surgery, trauma, infection, or inflammation.
Adhesions are a by-product of the healing process. Surgery (c-section, D&C, or other pelvic or abdominal surgery), trauma (auto accident, a fall, physical or sexual abuse), infection (bladder or yeast), and inflammation (endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, or STD) can all cause adhesions to form in the female reproductive organs. After they attach and grow, they can restrict normal body function and cause pain and dysfunction, including nearly half of all female infertility.
"Our blog will highlight adhesions and infertility, as well as pain and dysfunction," says Wurn. "We plan to offer educational podcasts, videos, and polls. Most importantly, bloggers will be able to post comments for discussion."
Wurn believes the blog can play a pivotal role in helping women discuss important medical concerns. She states, "Twenty years ago, my body was left scared and in pain after surgery and radiation therapy for cervical cancer. I wish a forum like this had existed then where I could speak with other women and experts about the pain and sexual dysfunction I experienced." Unable to find treatment to relieve her pain, Belinda and her husband, Larry, designed a manual physical therapy protocol that eventually helped her recover.
The Wurns are currently co-authoring a book, 'Miracle Moms, Better Sex, Less Pain', that examines their non-surgical manual physical therapy (Wurn Technique). The therapy has been shown to reduce adhesions, decrease pain, and restore function in peer-reviewed medical journals. It has proven effective for many people without the risks or side effects of surgery or drugs. It can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with other treatments.
The book will be published this winter and includes research gynecologist, Richard King, MD, as a co-author. The authors plan to provide the table of contents at the blog to open discussions with their readers on important topics. A free e-book excerpt from the book will also be available soon at http://www.clearpassage.com.
