Why are people so Healthy in Japan?

When it comes to health, weight of course is not everything, but since there are somany health complications from being overweight or obese, it’s safe to say that Japan withan obesity rate of 3. 5% is generally healthier than America with an obesity rate of 30%.

Japan isn’t perfect, it has found itself on the 2012 top 50 list for cancer rates,but it comes in near the bottom of the list at rank #48 while America is at rank #6. I’m contrasting Japan with America simply because these are the two countries I’velived in. Last time, I argued that convenient access to reasonably healthy food in Japan helpspeople stay thin. But what else contributes to health? In my last video, a lot of comments pointed out that in Tokyo you end up walking everywhere,which is true and should help people stay lean.

Also, walking while eating is generally frowned upon, so more walking means less snacking. Public transportation is impressively convenient and reliable – if you’re traveling aroundTokyo, your destination is almost always within a 20 minute walk from that area’s train, subwayor bus station. However, this is just Tokyo. Such a population dense part of Japan with highly organized public transportation unsurprisingly has the lowest rate of car ownership in Japan. What’s interesting is that average body mass index doesn’t change too drasticallyprefecture to prefecture, and higher car ownership doesn’t particularly correlate to higher body mass index. That said, more walking surely helps people stay leaner and healthier, but it’s justone piece of a bigger puzzle.

Next, the portion sizes in Japan are definitely smaller. Here’s what some typical lunches look like. When I first came to live in Japan in 2010, I remember always being a little disappointedwith the size of the meals. Of course bigger portions and even all you can eat places are available, but Since foodis more expensive here, I had to just get used to eating less food. In 2014, people spent on average about 13. 5% of their income on food, which is more thantwice what people in America spent. In 2013, 3682 calories were consumed per person per day in America, but it was only 2726 caloriesper day in Japan.

So Japanese people typically spend more money for less calories. Although, cheap calories from the sugar in soda is probably a factor here as Americansconsumed more than 5 times the amount of soda Japan did in 2011. Next, the type of food being eaten over here is of course different. You may have noticed in the clips I just showed that everything comes with rice. The Japanese diet is by no means low carb, but while Japan and America eat about thesame amount of the two grains Wheat and Rice combined, Japan eats about half as much wheatas America.

Cutting out wheat or gluten is usually suspected to be only a fad, but gluten, found in wheatand not rice, has been shown to have some unique properties. This 2012 Brazilian rodent study for example, found that putting just 4. 5% wheat glutenin the diet increases body fat, inflammation, and insulin resistance. Work by Dr.  Alessio Fasano and his team has shown that the gliadin protein of gluten,through the stimulation of a protein called Zonulin, opens up the spaces between the epithelialcells in your gut. This allows gliadin fragments to leak through the gut into the bloodstream, provoking animmune response and inflammation.

However, since the reaction to gluten differs person to person and the science is relativelynew and complex, it’s hard to say by what degree wheat is worse than rice or how muchwheat is too much. Next is the regular consumption of fermented foods in Japan. Élie Metchnikoff, winner of the 1908 Nobel Prize in Medicine, was the first to proposethe theory that lactic acid bacteria are beneficial to human health. He suggested that “oral administration of cultures of fermentative bacteria would implantthe beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract. “As research on the gut microbiome develops, the health effects of certain gut microbesand bacteria are becoming clearer.

A transplant of the microbes from one overweight woman to another woman caused the receivingwoman to become obese, and it’s been found that transplanting microbes from a confidentmouse to an anxious mouse will make that anxious mouse more confident. It’s estimated that there are 500 to 1000 species of bacteria just in your gut, andit’s important to take care of the right species of these bacteria. There’s even research showing that certain microbes produce certain neurotransmitters. And, fermented foods are supposed to support the microbes that we do want to have.

Plenty of fermented foods have been part of the Japanese diet for a very long time. There’s Natto, soy sauce, miso, fermented fish and tsukemono which is pickled vegetables. Kimuchi, a fermented food traditionally from Korea, is also widely available in Japan. Fermented foods like these are very easy to find at the supermarket, and it’s commonto get a side of Japanese pickles with your meal. The next point is balanced meat consumption. In 2017, total meat consumption in the U. S. per capita was 98. 4 kg where 51. 4kg of meatper capita were consumed in Japan. American people per capita ate only 7 kilograms of seafood in 2015, while Japanese peopleate 27. 3 kilograms of fish and fish products in 2014.

If the meat everyone was eating was antibiotic free grass fed meat, high meat consumptionmight not be a bad thing, but in any case we can agree that a higher fish intake isgenerally good for you. And I don’t think it would surprise you to hear that it’s really easy to get fishwherever you are in Japan. But there’s another kind of balance that might be a factor – it’s the muscle meatto organ meat ratio. Organ meats have not usually been much of a component of the American diet. During World War 2, people were encouraged to eat organ meats as part of the food rationing effort.

Articles like this one in this 1943 issue of Time Magazine sold organ meats as highlynutritious and explained how to cook them. The effort had some success in changing people’s views on organ meats, but the effect, didn’tlast much longer than the war itself. This is unfortunate because, as the time magazine issue shows, organ meats are rich in certainvitamins that muscle meat is not. And, glycine, an amino acid found in skin, cartilage and connective tissue has severalimportant health benefits- from being an anti-inflammatory to improving skin elasticity, improving insulinresponse, and it has been shown to ameliorate oxidative stress and lower blood pressure.

This study found that you could get a 30% increase in lifespan in rodents by restricting methionine, an amino acid found in muscle meat, or you could get a 30% increase in lifespanby supplementing glycine. Glycine supplementation also reduced fasting blood sugar, fasting insulin and even triglycerides. So it looks like the potential negative effects from eating too much muscle meat can be counteractedby simply consuming more of things like skin, cartilage, connective tissue, and bone broth.

Now in America you can surely find organ meats at some supermarkets, but in my 20 years in America, organ meats were rarely on the menu, though chicken skin is easy enough to find. Over in Japan, organ meats aren’t eaten every day of course, but they are more common. You can find them at the supermarket, or at Barbeque places and HorumonYaki places specializein organ meats, you can also get them on skewers at Yakitoriplaces. Pork is a big part of Okinawan cuisine and they don’t waste much of the animalAnother thing is green tea consumption. Green tea has been found to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-cancer effects as wellas blood sugar lowering effects thanks to the catechins in it.

Though, I’m betting green tea being healthy isn’t new information to you. Back when I lived in the states, the reason drinking it didn’t become a habit was thatit was simply annoying to have to buy it at the supermarket and then come home and makeit. Here, pretty much any restaurant serves it, sometimes for free, and you can always buyit from one of the many many vending machines prevalent throughout the country. What might be an even bigger benefit from regularly drinking green tea and other teasis that it keeps people from drinking sugary sodas. Here, I rarely see people here drinking soda with their meal, but I see people drinkingtea all the time.

One last point is the food being served to young children. In Japan, school meals are planned out by a nutritionist, cooked mostly from scratchfrom local ingredients, then served in the classroom by the students and eating mannersare taught by the teacher. The only drink allowed is milk, so students can’t be drinking juice or other sweet drinks. The meals aren’t always perfect, but they’re a lot better than what I remember gettingfrom the cafeteria in grade school in the states. There’s plenty more things about Japan I haven’t mentioned here, some that I evenexpect would be bigger determinants of health like consumption of Processed Foods, Sugarand processed corn, seed and soy oils. In short, it seems that people in Japan eat a lot more food rather than food like products. Japan’s food culture has contributed a lot to health over here, and I expect a lot more could be learned from looking at other countries’ food environments.




How Do You Know it’s Junk? Decluttering and Organizing Tips

How do you know it’s junk?

All right, on to today’s show, which is from a homeowner who is doing just that. She’s going through spring cleaning, she’s gutting everything out of her house, she’sdecluttering everything, and she wants to know what is considered junk? Oh, I love this question. All right, so junk is stuff that you no longer need, want or use. For example, let’s say that you are cleaning out your garage and you find a baby stroller. The baby stroller is nice, it’s in good, working condition ,but your children are 10 years old. Uh, okay, they’re never going to use that baby stroller again. The use and the life of that baby stroller are not going to work for you anymore. It’s junk, okay? So, junk for you.

Now if you want to get rid of that and you want to give it to someone else, you can putit out at the end of your driveway and make a little post, take a picture of it, makea little post and put it on nextdoor. com and say, hey, any of my neighbors, if you wantthis free stroller, it’s at the end of my driveway. Just come pick it up. I do this all the time. I just give stuff away. I put it out at the end of my driveway, I take a picture of it. I peek out my window and it’s gone, just like magic. Woohoo!I didn’t even have to leave my house. It’s so awesome.



All right, the next thing is, if you have stuff that you’re getting rid of, like I say,you can put it at the end of your driveway, or you can donate it to, say, for example,a thrift store. So if there are things in your life that you are done with, like videotapes. Do you have video tapes? Okay, you’re done with them. That is junk. They’re not even making video machines anymore. If you have CDs and DVDs, they are on their way out. Transfer everything over to a hard drive or to the Cloud or wherever and then just stream it. We’re done storing all that stuff, so that’s junk. Now, I helped a woman clean out her house,and we went through and we found a hundred belts. Over a hundred belts. A belt, that you hold up your pants with. And I asked her, “Well how many belts do you use?”And they were cute. They were cute belts. But she said, “I use exactly one. “Oh, okay, so why do you have all these other belts?There’s this really nice collection of belts. And she said, “I haven’t worn another belt in, say, 10 years. “10 years? All right, that is junk, okay?If you’re not using it, that is junk. All right, so get rid of it and move it on its way.

Candle Holders

Now, candle holders. Candles come in these fancy little containers and they have a little decorative top thatcome on them and when the candle burns down to almost nothing, people will save thoselittle jars with the intention of scooping out the rest of the wax. They’re going to wash them and polish them up and then they’re going to use them forhairpins or cotton balls or Q-Tips or candy or whatever. The problem is this; most people never get around to doing that final step. So while they have this decorative little jar, in most people’s houses, it still hasthat much wax at the bottom. That is junk.

The next candle you get, you can save that jar. Get rid of these jars because that is junk. Now, when you go to a trade show, people will give you things. They’re called ad specialties, and I’m not a fan of ad specialties because most of thetime, it’s ego junk. It’s ego junk, meaning it’s stuff that you’re never going to use. Maybe you’ll use it but it’s unlikely and it has somebody’s company name on it. One day, I open the cupboards in my house and we have, I’m not kidding, dozens of mugsthat have the names of banks, and car dealers on them, and dent, ding and repair shops. My husband is in the car business and so people will come to visit himand they bring him a mug. Then out of politeness and courtesy, he brings this nice, fancy mug home. Well, my husband and I don’t drink coffee, so guess how much we use those mugs? Like, let me check, oh, yeah. Not at all. Not at all. I don’t think we’ve ever used one of those mugs. I used one of them one time as a pencil holder and I put some pencils and ink pens in it. But I don’t need dozens, right?

If you have excess stuff like that that you’re not using, it’s junk to you. All right, another thing is Christmas lights. Do you have some Christmas lights in your house that, let’s say that you have one or two bulbs that are broken and the whole string is perfectly fine except the one or two bulbs. Every Christmas, you say, “Oh, yes, I’m going to go through that string of lights and I’mgoing to find the busted one and I’m going to replace it and then the whole string willwork just fine again. “But you’ve been storing these Christmas lights for six, eight, 10 years, and you’ve neverfixed the broken light. Well, the reality is, when it comes Christmas and they have the Christmas sales and allthe new lights come on sale, chances are you’re going to buy a brand new string of lightsand you’re never going to get around to this old, broken string. That is junk. Get rid of it. All right, another thing that we have to think about are appliances.

Small Appliances

There are small appliances and I’m thinking like little Panini makers and toasters andwaffle irons and stuff like that that you don’t use. If you use it once or twice a year, you probably don’t need it, okay? It’s probably just taking up space in your house. I know that when we moved from one house to the next, in the move I had this waffle ironand the handle broke off. Then I saved it because it was an expensive waffle iron. But the problem is, I don’t even make waffles. I haven’t made waffles in eight or 10 years, right?But here I was, hanging on to this waffle maker because, well, if you plugged it in,it still worked. It just had a broken handle. Junk, all right? That’s junk. Get rid of it because if you haven’t used it in eight or 10 years when you want a waffle, you can go to the store and buy an already made waffle or you can go down to the waffle house. If you don’t make waffles at home and that’s not part of your life, don’t keep the waffle maker, okay? It’s junk.

Let’s talk about clothes for a second. If I go into your closet right now, am I going to find some clothes that one day your skinnyself is going to get back into? Because if you have clothes in your closet right now that you’re going to shrink backinto, it’s junk. The reality is if you lose the weight and if you look spectacular, you’re not goingto go back to five or six-year-old jeans and go parading around in those, okay? Not going to happen. I hope that’s not going to happen, okay? So get rid of all of yesterday’s, last year, five years ago, model of clothes. Get rid of all that stuff because if it doesn’t fit you now, it’s junk. Don’t have stuff you’re going to grow into and stuff you’re going to shrink into. That’s junk.

What fits you right now, that’s what’s in front of you. That’s it. All right, another thing that we have to talk about is stuff, stuff that’s broken. Like, for example, let’s say that you have broken luggage and so the latches that hold the luggage together are busted and one day you’re going to fix it because luggage is expensive, right? You’re going to go down to the hardware store and you’re going to buy some latches and I don’t know how you’re going to do it. Drill holes in the side and put new latches on or whatever. Uh-uh. You’re not going to do that. You’ve never done that, you’re not going to do that now.

I do not see you waking up at five o’clock on a Saturday morning going, today’s the day I’m going to fix the broken luggage. Not going to happen. Now if it’s broken, and here’s the rule about broken stuff. If it’s broken and needs to be repaired, if you have not already repaired it, you probably are not going to ever repair it. So, get rid of it. I don’t mean put it out in your driveway and give it away and I don’t mean take it to the thrift store. The stuff goes in the trash bin. It is garbage. It is busted. You cannot use it, no one else can use it until it’s fixed. Toss it and get rid of it. That’s junk. Here’s the rule for junk, because I could walk through every room of your house and we would find some junk.

In fact, let me show you mine. Do you know what this is? This is a zip drive. This happened like, I don’t know, 10, 15 years ago and it holds a little disc, slides in here. It holds 100 megabytes of information. Woohoo!I know that was the big Mac Daddy at the time and I was so cool because I had a zip drive. Okay, I don’t even have a computer anymore that has a SCSI connector. This is so archaic. And this was it, I mean, this was small, this is an external hard drive and it is small. 100 megabytes. This is my new hard drive. 4 Terabytes. I pick the smaller one, it’s so much more convenient. All right, junk, okay? If you have stuff like this in your house, it’s junk.

If you have cords and electronics if you have yesterday’s phone charger from three, four,five years ago. The phone is gone but you still have the charger? Sell it on eBay or get rid of it because you’re never going backwards in time to buy an oldversion of a phone that you’ve already upgraded from. So get rid of it. You have cords that don’t plug into anything anymore. Get rid of them because that’s all junk. I have a great big box of cables and people come to me and they say, “Hey, I’m looking for a cable from such and such. “And I’m like, “Wait, I probably have one. “So I am the go-to person for cords and electronics.

Now, there’s probably somebody you know and if you have friends, you may have one friend that stores that box of cords and cables and all of you donate all your cords and cables and then all of you get rid of them so that there’s only one hub you go to for cords and electronic cables from past stuff. But there’s no need for everybody to be storing it because it’s garbage. So here’s the rule. when you’re going through your closets and your cupboards and all this stuff that you have and you’re getting rid of old pots and pans and old dishes and stuff that you haven’tused in years, the question is this: If I never saw this again, would I miss it? If the answer is, “no,” then you don’t need it now. It’s junk. If I never saw this again, the answer is, it’s junk. Alright, that’s my two cents for today and until we meet again,leave the world a cleaner place than when you found it.



How to care for and clean your laminate flooring

There’s a lot of misinformation out there on the World Wide Web about how to care for and clean your laminate flooring, and I know this is a pain point for you guys, especially that haze issue.  There are literally thousands of different styles and makes of laminate flooring available on the market today. But regardless of which type you have in your home, here are some tried and tested tips and tricks to keep your laminate flooring in showroom shape. Sweep and vacuum to remove debris. The most valuable step is also the easiest. Caring for your laminate floor starts with a regularly scheduled sweeping or vacuuming. Debris left on the floor can get caught underfoot or dragged around by a mop and cause scratches on the floor.

Remember to use a vacuum with a hard floor attachment and not the beater bar. The frequency will depend on how messy the space gets and how frequently it gets used. But so long as you’re mindful, your floors will look great. Mop Properly. Okay, my friends, here’s where things get juicy. First of all, using the right mop is crucial. For laminate floors, they tell me a flat head microfiber mop is boss, because it keeps moisture out and is the easiest way to use a spray product, which brings me to my next point.

Using a bucket filled with pine cleaners, lemon cleaners, oil soap, bleach or ammonia-based cleaners are not recommend for these floors because, you guessed it, they don’t leave a nice finish and can actually ruin the floor. If you do want to clean your floor the way the manufacturer says to,you have to use a properly formulated laminate floor cleanerand those come in a spray bottle and are available at home centers or flooring stores. When you do mop, make sure you mop in the direction of the grain to avoid the appearance of streaks. Hazy floor horrors! Let’s talk about one of the worst issues facing laminate floor owners –the haze.

It is the equivalent to a cleaning horror movie.  You clean and clean. It just keeps reappearing, and it’s practically impossible to get rid of. So I corralled one of the top product people here at Armstrong to help me with this very mysterious issue.  Marsha, hey.  Hey. Marketing Manager for Laminate Products here at Armstrong, what is the cause of this haze? You said it Melissa, it’s the product. You must use a laminate-approved product.  Okay.  Nothing else.  Those soaps,the oils, the pine-based, you’re going to get the haze. That haze horror is just what’s going to happen.  Interesting, guys.  Yeah. And so, is there anything we can do about the haze? Not so much.

Once you’ve got that haze,it’s going to be really hard to get off.  What we would recommend isthat you use that laminate cleaner. Okay.  That’s a spray.  Use that microfiber mop.  Mm-hmm.  And just keep working at it. But unfortunately some damage may have been done by using those cleaners,so it’s important to do it right, right out of the gate.  Okay.  That is really good advice.

Yes. Now about those mops, anything you want to tell me about mops? Those mops, it’s really important to clean them very frequently. Mm-hmm. But when you clean them, don’t use fabric softener.  Ah. They don’t need to smell pretty. That fabric softener is just going to bring the haze back even if you’re using that laminate-approved product.  Interesting.  So skip the fabric softener. And we know that about microfiber cloths, because we don’t wash them with fabric softener because that fabric softener clogs the fibers and that totally screws up thewhole microfiber situation.  Thanks, that was really helpful.  Thanks for asking.

Think ahead and protect your floor. Protect your floor so that it will last and look gorgeous. Dirt is brought into the house mostly by your shoes, so make sure you have a good front doormat system.  Now, we’ve covered this before,but I’ll quickly remind you, have one outdoor mat and one indoor mat, and, of course, a no-shoes policy in the house is best unless, of course, you’re breaking in a new pair of shoes,which I was doing a couple of videos ago. I did see those comments guys, and that’s why it happened. Also, if you have furniture on the floor which needs to be moved from time to time, use felt floor protectors. Steer clear of waxes and polishes. A laminate floor does not need to be waxed, polished, or refinished. It was designed to be durable and look shiny, so long as you take care of it properly.


Gelatin: for Joint Pain

The benefits of eating gelatin to ease joint pain.

  1. Joint pain is a common problem which can cause stiffness and lack of mobility. Stiff painful joints are caused by a variety of problems such as arthritis, exercise, age and physical trauma.
  2. The good news is that there are many natural foods which you can eat which will strengthen the joints and get rid of the pain.
  3. Gelatin is a common ingredient which is used as a gelling agent in food, medicine and cosmetic products. It is most commonly used in gummy candies and medical soft capsules .
  4. Gelatin is made of pure collagen which is extracted from the bones, ligaments and tendons of pigs and cows after slaughter. This is extremely powerful for improving the health of your joints and bones, as the collagen strengthens the tendons and connective tissue.
  5. Studies have taken place where people will eat gelatin every single day. It has been scientifically shown to strengthen the joint tissue and get rid of joint painover time.
  6. This works particularly well for those who are suffering with arthritis, or have had an injury and wish to heal the joints.
  7. Those who suffer with a lot of back pain should consider taking gelatin every single day along with gentle exercises to strengthen the muscles.
  8. When eating this daily, you will also notice your skin health improving as collagen is one of the main building blocks of skin. This provides elasticity, young looking and vibrant skin.
  9. There are different ways that you can take gelatin every day. You can make your own healthy “Jelly” or “Jello” by purchasing leafs of gelatin from the healthfood store or supermarket. These are soaked in hot water, and healthy fruit juices added to make a flavour some,yet healthy dessert.

When Should My Daughter Start Seeing an OBGYN

I’m Dr.  Emma Miller, I’m an OBGYN, and I practice at Timpanogos Women’s Center. So there’s no hard, fast recommended age for adolescents to come in. We generally say between 13 and 15 just to get them in, that’s about the time that they’ve started their period or maybe had their period for a year or two. I like to be able to see an adolescent early on in their years, so that they are comfortable with seeing an OBGYN, it’s something they’re going to have to experience the rest of their lives. But I want them to feel comfortable, to be able to come in the first time, maybe with their mothers, on one of their exams, just so they can be acquainted with it.

Really, all I want to do is make sure that they’re healthy, that if they’ve started having periods that they’re having normal, regular periods. Girls often don’t talk about them,and so they don’t know if they’re having normal or not. Some girls may be having very abnormal periods but not talking to their mothers or their friends about it and not knowing that there is something we could do to help them. Whether they be very painful cramps that are keeping them out of school, two, three days out of the month, which is not normal.

So they need to know to be able to ask those questions and know what normal is, so that’s something that really just a discussion to be had first and then to be there for them as they’re making the transitions. I think there are a lot of doctors obviously out there but being a female myself, as a young girl, I wanted to see a female OBGYN, it’s a time in your life when you’re not quite comfortable and it’s,thinks it makes it a little bit easier for them to relax and to know that there’s someone else that’s been through it that can give them that experience and at my office, you know, we have a wonderful M. A. who’s going to take them in and make them feel comfortable even from the start. We also want to make sure that they’re there to ask questions and maybe if they’re starting to ask questions about sexual activity, birth control, that’s something that they definitely can get in and talk to us about.

What is Menopause?

One of the best things about my specialty is,I get to start with a woman maybe in her teenage years,and follow her through marriage, her child bearing years, through to menopause,and a lot of women know that menopause is the change, but when does that occur? The average age is 52, but it’s plus or minus seven years on either side.

So they could be having symptoms in their 40s, or all the way into their late 50s. The definition of menopause is not having a menstrual period for greater than one year, but in the perimenopausal area, when that change is happening, it can be five years where you’re having irregular cycles,you’re having hot flashes, mood swings, and it’s important to know that these are a normal part of the change, but there’s also things that we can do if it’s impeding daily life.

Women need to know that they can come in and talk to me, and discuss the symptoms,and we can discuss the severity and whether or not it is important for them to be receiving treatments. There’s kind of a taboo about hormone replacement therapy, and if you Google it, you’re gonna find all sorts of horrible things.

But they need to know that there’s a lot that we can do, that there are treatments, and there is a place for that hormone replacement to help with hot flashes. And especially, it’s the biggest thing that we can help them do, get them to sleep well through the night and so they’re not so cranky in the morning,and they’re not getting their husbands and their children on their cases all the time. We just want them to be transitioning through this change of life the best way that they can, and the healthiest way that they can.

So they need to make sure that they know they can come in to see me during any phase, and that we can help them through that time. For the patient in menopause who’s having symptoms, it’s really important that they do come in and discuss those symptoms, and then discuss their personal history. There’s a lot of individualization we have to go through to figure out the best treatment for those patients. It’s not one size fits all; it’s definitely something we need to discuss with the patient so that they know their options and they know there are different things that we can use.


Fecal Incontinence Treatment

Hi, I’m Doctor Abby Crume. I’m a colorectal surgeon who practices in Salt Lakeand at Lakeview Hospital in Bountiful. Fecal incontinence is accidental leakage of gas or stool when not intended. It usually, when we treat it or see patientsfor it, it’s leakage of stool. Causes of fecal incontinence are very broad.

In general, the rectum is a storage place for stool, and the anal sphincter muscles contract to keep that stool in. Women who have been pregnant and have given birth have increased risk of being incontinent. Carrying a baby can stretch out those muscles and nerves and delivering babies can certainly damage the muscles and nerves. Just aging in general is a risk factor for incontinence. Any sort of nerve damage, whether it’s back problems,diabetes, multiple sclerosis, can lead to incontinence. And any sort of trauma to the anal or rectal region can lead to incontinence as well. We wanna do a good physical exam.

Usually the physician will do a rectal exam so they can rule out easily treatable causes for incontinence like big prolapsing hemorrhoids, a prolapsing rectum, or a connection from the inside of the anus to the outside. Once patients are optimized medically, if they’re still having problems we often will have them see a special physical therapist that specializes just in pelvic floor problems such as leaking stool and urine.

Options include anything from injecting a bulking agent into their rectum, or repairing the anal sphincters,to placing what we call an inner stem device which is a small wire that actually goes and lays next to the nerve that innervates the pelvis. And it sends a signal to that nerve and so it stimulates the nerves in the pelvis. If you would like to discuss fecal incontinence, please call and make an appointment to come see us and hopefully we can help you deal with this issue and figure out a better way to live your life.
