List of Health Conditions from A to Z
       



BLADDER

SYSTEM: Urinary

CATEGORY: Organ

NUMBER: 1

SHAPE: Hollow, distensible (expandable), balloon like and muscular (see Bladder Title Page)

SIZE: Depends on the amount of urine it contains (holds average of 16 oz.)

LOCATION: Lower abdominal cavity, and behind the pubic bone.

FUNCTION:  Stores and releases urine that it receives from two tiny tubes (ureters) that empty the kidneys.

KINESIOLOGY:  Center one inch above the pubic bone.  Test when bladder is empty. (See page Bladder-4 Coming Soon)

IRIDOLOGY: In both eyes.  Right eye at 7:10 and Left eye at 5:10 (see page Bladder-5)

REFLEXOLOGY: On the instep towards the heel 2/3 down from the foot's big toe (see page Bladder-6 Coming Soon )

HELPS TO IMPROVE FUNCTION: To build up the strength of the bladder, Kegel exercises, especially after childbirth can be helpful.

  • While you are urinating stop completely mid-stream
  • Count to 20 then begin to urinate again, stop and count to 20.  
  • Do this until the bladder is empty at least 3 stops during one urination
  • Do daily (every urination)

DETRIMENTAL TO ITS HEALTH: Holding back for long periods of time the urge to urinate, this can stretch and weaken the tone. Fluoride and soda, coffee and tea.  Not enough water.

POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS/HEALTH CONDITIONS: Pregnancy or prolapsis of the transverse colon can cause pressure and even cause the bladder to drop.  Painful urination, cystitis, bladder infections, bladder stones, thickening of the bladder wall (reducing its ability to stretch).  Also check for parasites.

Bladder fistulas - Nature fuses an organ such as intestine or uterus to the bladder which then can empty through the bladder.

Cystocele - when the bladder drops and protrudes into the vaginal wall.

HYPERACTIVITY (OVERACTIVE)

Bladder stones, bladder infections, yeast in bladder and cystitis - can cause frequent and painful bloody urination.

Pregnancy can cause frequent urination.

HYPOACTIVITY (UNDERACTIVE)

Bladder stones -can form from inadequate bladder emptying.

Bladder infections can cause the swollen inflamed bladder from emptying adequately.
