Practical Solutions to a Condition that Plagues Millions of Women: Urinary Incontinence, Part 1
March 9, 2021
Female Incontinence: It’s time it came out of the shadows, given that nearly 1/2 of women will suffer from it to some extent during their lifetimes. It can cause depression, isolation, and shame, and prompt women to limit essential hydration. Urogynecologist Dr. Jill Rabin, co-author of "Mind Over Bladder: A Step-By-Step Guide to Achieving Continence" argues that women should not be resigned to incontinence—it can be overcome in a majority of cases. Starting with simple, practical lifestyle interventions, graduating to specialized behavior modification and pelvic floor strengthening techniques, and using medications and surgery only where necessary, a variety of solutions are available. New minimally invasive corrective surgeries obviate the need for lengthy hospitalization and recovery. An innovative new technique, Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS) borrows from acupuncture to deliver painless electrical stimulation to re-establish urinary control. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: Making Sense of Mental Illness, Part 1
March 4, 2021
In this exciting podcast, Dr. Randolph Nesse, a pioneer in evolutionary psychiatry, discusses his new book "Good Reasons for Bad Feelings." Nature doesn’t care whether we feel bad—our emotions are shaped by natural selection to maximize the survival of the species. But there’s a mismatch between our ancient emotional wiring and the circumstances of modern life. What’s the purpose of emotions? Is anxiety natural? What’s the evolutionary benefit of depression? Why do schizophrenia, autism and bipolar disorder persist when they’re so harmful to sufferers? Why is addiction so prevalent? Are we really in the throes of a modern epidemic of childhood mental disorders? Are we over-diagnosing and treating mental conditions that are a natural consequence of our wiring? What’s the take-home message of evolutionary psychiatry for patients and clinicians? Click HERE for part 2.
