Ayurvedic Treatment For Overactive Bladder With Herbal Remedies

When the bladder bursts…!

To be able to hold our pee is amazing. I mean, come on we all have immensely benefited from this imperium of ours. We all have at least once held our urge to urinate during important times. Things may or may not occur like this. But thankfully most of us are well equipped with the bladder control mechanism which makes it easy to live in a civilized environment. Have you ever thought about what it would be like if we lost this control over our bladder? Yes, such a vile condition exists and is known as overactive bladder (OAB). In OAB, a person loses their bladder control, leading to frequent urination, unable to hold the urge of urination for long, and sometimes an unexpected passage of urination without getting an initial urge (urgency incontinence).it is a condition that can immensely affect our social life and self-confidence. The key to cure lies in the accurate diagnosis of the primary cause. Some causes can be dealt with easily while others can be managed with the right measures.

Overactive Bladder

What are the chances of getting an overactive bladder?

The commonest cause of an OAB is psychological distress. When the mind is continuously under stress, it exhausts the body of its energy which sometimes leaves the body with no energy to gain power over its natural urges. You may have seen similar scenarios in you or people around you. People may experience temporary urine incontinence or loss of bowel control just before an exam or a job interview or anything that triggers panic in them. Not just stress but also chronic depression can eventually lead to physical exhaustion and in turn lead to loss of body control.

Many other causes can lead to the development of an overactive bladder. It includes weak pelvic muscles, nerve damage (due to herniated disc, radiation, pelvic or back surgery), some medications, beverages like alcohol and caffeine, estrogen deficiency after menopause, excess weight, and urinary tract infections. Food habits are also a major cause of concern for overactive bladder.

What are the problems faced by patients with overactive bladder (OAB)?

The symptoms of an overactive bladder include mainly urinary urgency and urge incontinence. Increased frequency of urination and nocturia also may manifest. However, the psychological distress encountered by the patient due to embarrassment must be addressed along with his/her physical condition. Psychological disturbances are a major concern in this disease. It's more nefarious than the physical conditions. Symptoms of the primary cause of OAB can also be seen in the patient, some may be psychological symptoms and some may be physical.

Ayurvedic view on overactive bladder (OAB)

Ayurveda considers mutra as a mala and as an Adharaniya vega, that is, an urge which should not be suppressed. Ayurveda emphasizes untimely micturition as a leading disease-causing factor. The disease can be manifested by suppressing the natural urges or intentionally initiating an urge in its absence. Treatment of urogenital issues caused by both causes is extensively explained in ayurvedic classics. OAB can be treated successfully using ayurvedic medicines in a very systematic way and without having any side effects. By using traditional knowledge along with modern advancement, OAB is no longer a matter of concern.

Treatment in brief for overactive bladder (OAB)

Collaborating with both modern techniques and ayurvedic medicine can help you regain your bladder control fast. Psychotherapy is an essential part of treating OAB, as the commonest reason is psychological stress. Psychotherapy can rule out or help in existing mental distress that caused this disease or can help you deal with the shame and embarrassment caused by this disease. Exercises like Kegel exercise and bladder training can help in increasing the duration of holding the urge for a long time. Along with Ayurvedic treatment such as internal medications, avagahana (sitz bath with medicated liquid) or/and Uttara basti (administration of medicated liquid into the urinary bladder through the urethra, etc. can aid you in your recovery.
