This show will provide you with website resources for bladder, bowel, and pelvic pain conditions. Patients frequently ask for reputable resources so I thought it would be helpful to create a show with a comprehensive list. This is not all-inclusive but would be a good starting point if you are looking for resources and/or support.
Pelvic floor health is certainly not something women talk about during happy hour or over lunch. Occasional giggly references to ‘don’t make me laugh (I’ll pee!)’ or kegel exercises is about all that takes place when talking about this important aspect of a woman’s health.
However, the fact that this conversation can be awkward shouldn’t diminish its importance. Do you realize that in addition to controlling our urine, helping us to have babies, our pelvic floor also holds up our guts? There is much to learn about having a healthy pelvic floor – what it is and how to care for it. Join us to hear more.

Today’s episode will hopefully help to answer some of the common questions that patients have regarding pelvic floor physical therapy. Many do not know that this specialty area of physical therapy even exists, much less what all it entails. I will be discussing the basics of what to expect from a typical pelvic floor evaluation and treatment, how to go about locating a pelvic floor physical therapist and questions to ask them to ensure they are a good fit for your condition, as well as some common questions that many patients have on their first visit.
Carol Pirika shares her story of personal recovery from huge physical and mental challenges through physical therapy and attention to the mind –body-spirit connection. Carol suffered major surgery at the age of 24 and as a young woman had to face the possibility of being unable to have children. She overcame that with inspiration and learning from teachers in the physical therapy and fitness world, who helped with whiplash rehabilitation from a car accident and consequent adrenal fatigue. She faced a further challenge to recover use and strength of her pelvic floor after an episiotomy with her first child and became passionate and determined to assist women to help and heal their own bodies.
Her personal journey took her into a career as a top level personal trainer, motivated to gather specialist tools and knowledge to help women recover from post-natal and post hysterectomy challenges. Carol now has two beautiful children, a great level of fitness and a very positive attitude to overcoming physical challenges!
Carol, (who runs Bump Post Natal and Pregnancy classes) shares her training philosophies, practical ideas and inspiration to raise your spirits - from the bottom up! If you’ve ever experienced post-natal sadness or loss of physicality from ‘women’s problems’ you will be inspired with practical information from a personal journey shared.

Many people are so afraid of catching diseases and viruses from other people that some women stand on toilets in public places to pee so they don't have to set on a toilet seat that another woman has sat on. What does the Lord think of this kind of behavior? what lessons can be learned from such acts? Tune it to an unique subject and episode.
WHAT IF I told you that by using BRAIN POWER you could fight the effects of AGING. We all know we're at the effect of aging and gravity.
WHAT IF I told you you can protect your brain through exercise, nutrition, sleep and being mindful of your CHOICES to ensure a quality of life that eludes many.
WHAT IF I told you that exercising will stimulate your brain. As we age, if we don't exercise our bicep, they atrophy. If you don't stimulate and exercise your brain SAY HELLO TO ATROPHY.
WHAT IF I told you that if you don't use your brain, the brain shrinks. Challenge and stimulate your brain with...the experience of Theatre...writing a book...a new hobby-and the list goes on.
SLEEP, are you getting...etc.
EVERYTHING IN MODERATION...etc.
.Sheikh Ali Suleiman Ali’s Endorsing Comments Regarding:
The Language of Revelation: Classical Arabic Language Instruction and Exercises with Qur’aan Commentary For Beginners & Non-Beginner’s By Siddeeq Jihad.
I have read this detailed, scholarly work of our brother, Siddeeq Jihad.The book is basically written and structured to help anyone who is interested in learning Classical Arabic. The book is highly instructive and well organized.
No doubt, the author Siddeeq Jihad has a great love for Lughatut-tanzeel, the language of revelation. He has dedicated many years studying and teaching Qur’aanic Arabic.
Allah has enabled him to share the knowledge He has blessed him with. Siddeeq has had a long jihad (exertion of diligent effort/time) in learning Qur’aanic Arabic.
The book is extremely useful! It is an excellent guide for beginners and non-beginners and whoever is interested in learning Lughatut-Tanzeel: The Language of Revelation. This work equips and empowers its readers with a strong foundation to understand Qur’aanic Arabic. It can indeed lead students, male and female toward Arabic proficiency. I strongly recommend the book for brothers and sisters who are interested in learning Qur’aanic Arabic as well as Modern Standard Arabic.
Sheikh Ali S. Ali, Director of the Canton Masjid in Michigan
Host Phyllis Austin interviews Bobbie Bean, a father whose son was beaten three times within 2 and half hours.
Understand that this is not a gradual escalating bullying incident. This bullying incident is spontaneous and occurred one day, a day that left a son in intensive care fighting for his life.
Imagine your child being airlifted to a hospital after being brutally beaten on school property thrice in two and a half hours. Now, imagine that you begin asking how this could happen at a school and are met with red tape and railroading. The school committee, administrators, and the Sheriff's Department ignore your requests for information. Townspeople join in to retaliate against your family because you refuse to give up your pursuit of justice.
Unwavering in his quest for justice, the father, Bobbie Bean, eventually makes his way to the Florida statehouse floor to lobby for accountability, lost lives, and the dramatic passage of what was in 2008 the toughest anti-bullying bill in the nation.
