Manage episode 359345866 series 3427878
Is surgery the only solution? If you feel pressured by your doctor to have surgery to address your pelvic floor prolapse, today's episode will help you determine if that really is the right path for you. Our guest is Alyce Adams, a registered nurse changing women's lives and pelvic health with simple kegel exercises. As a nurse, she understands the muscular makeup of the pelvic floor. Her program is device free and takes only a minute a day!
Sometimes surgery is unavoidable, but it never negates the need for a healthy lifestyle. Alyce describes how your weight, your breathing, and your diet all affect the pelvic floor. The body is interconnected and therefore cannot be isolated into individual parts, Alyce teaches you how to make choices that support the longevity of your pelvic health instead of actively degrading it.
The conventional medical system is set up to give authority to doctors and actively disempowers women in their ability to question and make informed decisions for their health. Alyce arms you with the vocabulary and questions to maintain your medical power. Education is the first step in making informed decisions about your health. If you are ready to reclaim your power, tune in to this episode of The Stronger Bones Lifestyle!

“Even if you do have surgery, you still need to do all the lifestyle stuff, just because you’re doing surgery or taking a pill for your bones, doesn't mean the lifestyle stuff suddenly doesn't matter. It’s still just as important to do all those other things to take care of your body so you don’t revert to having that problem again, the lifestyle things are never off the table.” [10:40] -Alyce Adams
“Everything lines up, and if your alignment is off, it can really put you at increased risk for problems, so having healthy muscles, and healthy bones, and healthy connective tissue, as usual, we see that everything is connected and you can’t talk about any part of the body in isolation.’[14:05] -Alyce Adams
