Straight Talk on Something Difficult to Talk about – from a Nurse Who Knows

You do not have to live with constant pain or embarrassment

When Wendy Cohan, a registered nurse, was diagnosed with the painful, chronic and often progressive disease, interstitial cystitis (IC), she experienced firsthand the frustration millions of patients with IC feel when attempting to find effective, lasting relief. Her extensive research and commitment to becoming well again led to her becoming pain- and symptom-free, with her work and sleep no longer interrupted. She is now dedicated to sharing this kind of life-changing relief with others.

A comprehensive, easy-to-understand recovery plan, accompanied by powerful success stories and the resources youll need to succeed

Cohan begins by providing a clear understanding of how a diagnosis is made. She then explores the possible causes of symptoms, providing options for positive changes you can implement. She explains frequently prescribed medications and procedures and then picks up where common medical approaches leave off to discuss:

• food sensitivities, including the dramatic relief many experience from eliminating the dietary protein gluten, found in specific grains

• stress reduction techniques that can alleviate symptoms, including pain, urinary hesitancy and bladder and pelvic floor spasms.

• medicinal herbs, teas, and sleep aides that work safely and effectively to promote healing

• hormonal imbalances that affect women with bladder issues and pelvic pain

Cohans techniques target not just freedom from pain and inconvenience, but also life-long, whole-body healing and well being.

Synopsis:

Bladder problems affect millions of people, and recovery is often difficult and incomplete. As a registered nurse, Wendy Cohan has provided health information and treatments for patients with a number of bladder conditions. She begins with a description of the anatomy and function of the urological system and the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of typical bladder problems. She lists frequently prescribed medications, explains how they work, and identifies their side effects. The bulk of the book picks up where medical treatment leaves off: the use of diet and herbs, regular exercise, stress and pain reduction techniques, and methods for better sleep are discussed. Cohan includes self-assessments, meal plans, herbal recipes, and a week-by-week recovery plan to create a complete holistic approach to bladder wellness. Information on specific diets, a review of the range of conditions that can cause pelvic pain, and a thorough guide to additional resources complete the book.
