Sherrie Palm, author and pelvic organ prolapse expert raises awareness worldwide through her book pelvic organ prolapse the silent epidemic and through her focus groups. This woman has an enormous amount of energy who doesn’t take a break from her mission to educate the world about the different stages of prolapse and how to deal with it.
Her book Pelvic Organ Prolapse the silent epidemic is a real eye opener into the world of someone who suffers with this condition. A condition which has plagued men and women for centuries. Is just as common as incontinence issues, is just as prevalent as diabetes yet is not spoken about.
Sherrie’s book is written for the everyday woman to help them not only understand about this condition but how to treat it effectively. It is a clearly written book with each chapter taking you through the journey of dealing with pelvic organ prolapse.
Exerpt from Chapter 2: The Cause of POPChronic Constipation. In a time when IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome) is running amuck from the stress inducing non-stop lifestyles we subject ourselves to, it is a wonder that there isn’t IBS occurring to at least one person in every household. We no longer eat properly,we often sleep deprived, we don’t take the time to exercise , and we have little free time to relax after we take care of the family……. IBS often bounces back and forth between constipation and diarrhea. For those who suffer more from the constipation aspect (or even those that do not have IBS but simply have constipation issues because of poor diets), be aware that this can have a major impact on the state of your abdominal organs. When you repeatedly have to push and bear down to have a bowel movement, the constant state of pressure that it creates on the organs in your pelvic cavity can result in POP issues. Each organ in the abdominal and pelvic cavities is attached to something else, which is attached to something else. When you need to push to have a bowel movement, you are not just putting press on your rectum (which can cause hemorrhoids), but also on all of the other organs in the abdominal cavity. this can lead to more than one POP issue.
Reading the book makes you really take a good look at one’s self and encourages one to take action. The diagrams in the book are clear without being offensive.
Throughout the next few months I will be helping raise the awareness of Pelvic Organ Prolapse through exerpts of Sherrie’s Book encouraging you to seek help if you think you have a prolapse.
