    The Root Causes of Urinary Problems with Dr Melina Holman DC

    in Spirituality

    Each system, cell, and atom is in constant communication with each other at all times. Through exposure to the stresses of day-to-day life, however, these lines of communication can become compromised or disconnected, which then
    leads to a decline in physical, emotional and/or mental well-being.


    Dr. Holman believes that understanding yourself at a deeper level, such as your belief systems and how you got to where you are is crucial to optimal health and healing. Her job is to help you understand where these belief systems came from and how you can release them.


    On this segment Dr. Holman will be addressing the Urinary system as it relates to kidney issues, UTI, incontinence and more. She will be discussing how beliefs and emotions can become trapped, break the lines of communication and cause these physical issues.


    "To gain wisdom we must have knowledge and experience, to have knowledge and experience we must first be aware and to be aware we must have acceptance of our fear, worry, anger, sadness and grief.
                                                                                                                    – Dr. Melinea Holman

    Curtis Harwell Discusses How Fitness and Health Affects Your Sex Life

    in Fitness

    Helps Keep Your Immune System Humming


    “Sexually active people take fewer sick days,” says Yvonne K. Fulbright, PhD a sexual health expert.


    People who have sex have higher levels of what defends your body against germs, viruses, and other intruders. Researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania found that college students who had sex once or twice a week had higher levels of the a certain antibody compared to students who had sex less often.


    You should still do all the other things that make your immune system happy, such as:



    Eat right.
    Stay active.
    Get enough sleep.
    Keep up with your vaccinations.
    Use a condom if you don’t know both of your STD statuses.


    2. Boosts Your Libido


    Longing for a more lively sex life? “Having sex will make sex better and will improve your libido,” says Lauren Streicher, MD. She is an assistant clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago.


    For women, having sex ups vaginal lubrication, blood flow, and elasticity, she says, all of which make sex feel better and help you crave more of it.


    3. Improves Women's Bladder Control


    A strong pelvic floor is important for avoiding incontinence, something that will affect about 30% of women at some point in their lives.


    Good sex is like a workout for your pelvic floor muscles. When you have an orgasm, it causes contractions in those muscles, which strengthens them.

    Pelvic Floor Health - "50 Shades of.... Awkward"? with Dr. Marie Woerner

    in Women

    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.
