Detoxing With Dani Pelvic Floor Podcast Feature

In August, I sat down with Danielle Ferguson, host of Detoxing with Dani , to discuss some important health issues that many of us face. It was so great to chat with Dani about the ways that pelvic floor dysfunction can affect your body and other health issues.
You can find the episode via Dani’s site , and it is full of great information! We cover the wide-ranging functions of your pelvic floor, the types of symptoms you might be experiencing, and how this can affect your overall health. We combat the idea that these issues are taboo, or occur simply because “you’re aging” or “this is a normal part of having kids” or “you can expect pelvic pain that may not go away after vaginoplasty”. Everyone has a right to and can work towards pelvic floor health, you just need the right tools!
There are plenty of exercises, stretches, and modifications available. If you think this could be your issue, or you are looking for things you can do at home, take a look at my YouTube videos or find a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist in your area. There are more links listed at the bottom of this article for recommended videos and products to help you reach your goals!
