Incontinence is a subject most men and women are reluctant to talk about — even with their doctors. As a result, they suffer physically, emotionally — and needlessly. They fail to get help that can restore continence and confidence.
More than 32 million Americans, including one in three older women, live with incontinence. It is a treatable medical issue — not a psychological problem or personal failure. You can do something about incontinence. And the sooner you act, the more effective the results can be.
In Better Bladder and Bowel Control, a Special Health Report from Harvard Medical School, you will be briefed on the most recent advances in helping men and women who sometime, or often, face bladder or bowel control problems. You will learn about the causes and, most important, about the corrective measures you can take to manage and lessen the symptoms of incontinence.
The report will candidly and comprehensively show you how new treatments, therapies, and procedures are significantly improving continence and brightening lives.
You will read about medications that can cause urinary incontinence — and medications that can curb it. You’ll find out about simple lifestyle changes that can make a gratifying difference for people suffering from stress incontinence or an overactive bladder. And you’ll be updated on effective new outpatient procedures that are replacing traditional surgeries.
The report offers practical guidance for treating fecal incontinence. It examines treatment choices ranging from dietary changes and bowel training regimens to surgery. You’ll read about good foods for “bulking up.” You’ll be alerted to specific (and surprising) foods that can trigger incontinence. And you’ll be coached on easy exercises to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor, shoring up those that control the bladder and bowel.
The good news is that bladder and bowel problems can be solved. Discover how you can regain the peace of mind you once enjoyed. Order your copy of this important Special Health Report today.

Psalm 1:1-6 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.

Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like:
