And on this week’s show!

When you think ‘Pelvic floor’ most people either think of women who’ve just given birth or elderly people, but having an unstable pelvic floor can affect us all – that’s including men, so I’ve invited a wonderful physical therapist, Dr Danielle Bailey, who helps thousands in her practice and online, get their pelvic floor in shape and transform all sorts of symptoms that aren’t just about peeing when you don’t want to – although that part is, of course, the biggest reason to get excited – even laugh and cry or sneeze, and be relaxed about it. Right? Danielle is a physical therapist and functional medicine practitioner in Plano Texas, USA, specializing in pelvic floor physical therapy. She supports women and men who experience pelvic floor dysfunction, such as urinary leakage, tailbone pain, frequent restroom breaks, pain with intercourse, and constipation. She also helps women who experience discomfort during pregnancy and postpartum. Danielle works closely with clients to help them discover the root cause of their challenging health issues.


Questions I asked Danielle:

  • Of all the things you could help people with as a health professional – why the pelvic floor? 
  • What are some of the things people experience in terms of symptom pictures, that could imply pelvic floor dysfunction? 
  • Can you talk us through what the pelvic floor actually is and what some of the reasons it can be weakened/lose function are? 
  • How does trauma feed into the PF conversation? Is it the nervous system health link? 
  • It’s a common thing to explore for women – but can this affect men too? 
  • We seem to accept not being able to jump up and down or sneeze without a cheeky leak as we get older or after birthing babies but do we really have to? 
  • Environmental toxins and leakage – I know when I was mold-affected and my ADH levels were way out, I was constipated because my GI system was snail-pace thanks to the nervous system impact of mould so I needed to pee all the time and had to pee halfway through an hour of tennis so that I wouldn’t leak – this resolved when I resolved the mould/ADH/constipation issue – it makes me wonder: Are there any other root causes you know of that might seem left field but can make a massive difference to people’s pelvic floor? I know you’ve talked about dietary adjustments before – can you share your insights? 
  • Do we all need to be doing vagina weights and Kegels? What is the difference between the two ? Can you step us through what doing pelvic floor work looks like for the beginner – what about for the “I’m up for a new challenge” person? 
  • Does maintaining a healthy pelvic floor look different for young/older man/woman
  • Of course, pregnancy/postpartum is a big time for pelvic floor focus – what are some of the most important aspects to care about during that period in the person’s life? 
  • How can having a strong pelvic floor then have a flow on effect for overall wellness?
