1) Step-Free Vaginal Weights
Set of 5 weights that build tone and endurance in the pelvic floor, as discussed in Chapter 3. Use these weights in the comfort of your home, and they will give you the endurance you need to lose that end-of-the-day fatigue in your pelvic floor, when urinary leakage and organ prolapse tend to worsen.
Resistive exercise device (with springs) to increase pelvic floor strength with accompanying instructional DVD, as discussed in Chapter 3. Just like weight lifters train their skeletal muscles in their arms and legs, you can weight train your pelvic floor muscles with this resistive device. The KegelMaster is especially good for athletic and active women.
3) UTISlip D-Mannose
A simple sugar that combats UTI’s better than cranberry juice, as discussed in Chapter 5. When D-Mannose sticks to the lining of the urethra, bacteria (E.coli) can not stick and therefore an infection does not occur. There are no side effects, and D-Mannose can be taken while pregnant and nursing. Larger doses are taken at the first sign of infection, and if you are prone to frequent UTIs, you can take a daily dose for preventative maintenance. (Discuss with your MD before stopping your antibiotic medication.)
4) Magic Circle
Small resistive Pilates equipment with an accompanying instructional DVD, as discussed in Chapter 6. Add more resistance to your core workout (deep abdominals and pelvic floor) with this well-made and diverse exercise device.
5) AeroPilates Reformers
For home use with accompanying instructional DVD, as discussed in Chapter 6. Make an investment in this high-quality home reformer, and you will experience the benefits of a Pilates reformer workout at home – flatter tummy, more-erect posture, better balance, improved coordination, and best of all… less incontinence!
6) Backnobber II & Jacknobber
Tools for self-massage and pressure point relief, as discussed in Chapter 8, with an instructional booklet included. These tools allow you to self-massage hard to reach areas, like the pelvic floor and between your shoulder blades. Just a few minutes goes a long way to relieve the tension and knots in your muscles. Get ready for that “Ahhh” moment.
