Dr. Madeleine Castellanos joins us for a discussion of integrative treatment of female sexual dysfunction. Dr. Castellanos is a chapter co-author with Dr. Hoffman of "Integrative Sexual Health," part of a Dr. Andrew Weil series of textbooks about integrative medicine. She offers a deep-dive on women’s sexual responses which involve a complex interplay between physical and psychological factors. What health benefits does sex confer? What are common roadblocks to sexual enjoyment among women? Why was “female Viagra” a bust? What roles for testosterone, DHEA, pregnenolone, oxytocin, estrogen, progesterone? Why are birth control pills and antidepressants sexual downers? Can a woman’s thyroid get in the way of her sexual enjoyment? Do diet and supplements make a difference? Are nutraceuticals like Maca, ginseng and soy isoflavones helpful? What does “Mindfulness” have to do with sex? Click HERE for part 2.

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.
