Welcome to the UROX Bladder Health Centre.
Urinary incontinence and Overactive Bladder are common problems affecting up to 16% of Australian men and up to 37% of Australian women.
The total affected population is difficult to quantify as it is often under reported, however The Continence Foundation of Australia states that over 3.1 million Australians experience bladder control problems.
Our Bladder Health Centre contains information and links to help you understand the condition and, most importantly, not feel bad about it.
Scientific studies have found that some popular prescription and over-the-counter medicines have anticholinergic activity and can increase the possibility of developing dementia. Unfortunately, bladder medications are included in the list. We’ve popped a couple of articles from The Washington Post and The People’s Pharmacy in our Bladder Heath Centre for you to read.
Here at UROX our mission is to help people regain their confidence and lifestyle by improving their bladder health, naturally.
We also want to help take the stigma out of poor bladder control by encouraging people to talk openly about their situation. After all, one in five people around the world are dealing with incontinence every single day.
So it goes without saying that some of the most recognisable faces on the planet also suffer from bladder weakness and kudos to these celebs who have openly and publically talked about their predicament.
So, if you are the one in five, don’t feel embarrassed about it…you’re in good company!
Changing old habits can be hard, but if you put your mind to it, you’ll thank yourself because you’ll feel so good.
Nutrition and lifestyle can have a profoundly positive impact on so many aspects of our health, and the bladder is no exception.
You can improve your bladder strength and ability to empty and fill efficiently by following some simple diet and lifestyle changes.
These suggestions can certainly prevent the problem from becoming worse, especially into menopause and your ‘senior’ years.
The Seipel Group Pty Ltd., Brisbane, Australia, has been granted U.S. Patent No. 9,452,191 for Herbal compositions for the prevention or treatment of urinary incontinence and overactive bladder.
Seipel Group has registered the U.S. trademark Urox for the formula, a proprietary blend of Lindera aggregata, Equisetum arvense and Cratevox (Crateva nurvala), which is sold by several U.S. supplement companies under their own brands.
So here’s some sobering facts…If you were to throw away one incontinence pad today, it would not decompose until 2514. If Captain Cook wore an incontinence pad when he stepped ashore in Australia, his pad would not have decomposed yet.
