A main symptom of Overactive Bladder is the sudden uncontrollable urge to urinate! This urge is usually controlled by our sympathetic system or our body’s flight or fight response.

When we feel the sudden urge to go our body reacts to the urge with high alert, causing stress to the body, sometimes leading to leakage. To turn off this hypervigilant response and decrease the urge we use a technique called “urge suppression.” This method works by turning on the parasympathetic system in the body which relaxes and calms the bladder from its highly alert state leading to decreased urge.

Just Breathe and Believe in yourself.
