I have just been diagnosed with pelvic floor dysfunction. Apparently, my digestive muscles are "uncoordinated" and causing me to not be able to evacuate properly. So, I am always backed up, more or less. I think I have probably had this for a very long time in retrospect, now that I know what this is.
This is treatable with a 2 week biofeedback program to retrain the muscles to work properly. (80% effectiveness) Until I can get the treatment (about 2 months) I was told to eat lightly and alot of easily digested things and to use laxatives (Smooth move tea is good). I had been on a primarily raw food diet for a long time, and the doctor felt that was my way of intuitively coping with the condition.
Anyone out there familiar with this dysfunction and the treatment?
You may remember, I posted here about the swollen biliary duct that showed up on the cat scan I had done. A follow up, weeks later, with an MRI showed that the biliary duct was NO LONGER swollen, and there was nothing else that showed up on the MRI, which I was relieved to hear.
HOWEVER, I still believe that the reason that the biliary duct was swollen in the first place, is because of sluggish bile and probably stones. (I do not have a gall bladder but have had liver pain for years, even after gall bladder removal).
I am still having pain, on the left side which is apparently a combination of the nerve pain from shingles and the pain of being backed up in my digestive system. I believe also because my bile is not moving well enough to digest my food properly. The pain is no longer excruciating as it was for about 2 1/2 weeks, but still there.
I finally got the chinese herbs I ordered from sensiblehealth.com. I just took my first doses yesterday. When I go to bed at night I normally feel like I have a rock in my stomach. Nothing is moving. When I took the herbs before bed, within an hour or so, I felt like something opened up and I had less pressure. And that was with just a small amount, as I thought I should start out slowly. If all goes as planned, I will use these herbs for 6 weeks. They are supposed to help move bile and open up the energy flow of the liver and help dissolve stones. And THEN, finally, I will do my first liver flush. So, another question I have is: have any of you used the chinese herbs and what was your experience???
I also did some parasite cleansing before doing this, and am pretty sure I got some results. It sure seemed different anyway.
I received my order from BH and I think I will start his dewormer and lower Bowel Cleanse after my first flush.
Any comments or suggestions from any of you about the above would be so very much appreciated!
