Hay Fever and Your Pelvic Floor

Hay Fever and Your Pelvic Floor

The sun is shining through the Kegel8 office windows and it’s clear that spring has most definitely sprung!

We love the lighter nights and light mornings, but along with the sun comes allergies, and more specifically, thanks to the rise in pollen counts as the plants start to bloom, hay fever, which affects more than 10 million of us in England alone. That’s almost one in five of us who suffer yearly coughs, watery eyes and the almost-constant sneezing that comes with the rise in pollen counts. For most of us, hay fever is an inconvenience that can be controlled with simple over-the-counter remedies, but for those of us suffering from pelvic floor weakness, it’s a whole different story…

Allergy Awareness Week 2014 - Kegel8 & Nickel Allergies

Allergy Awareness Week 2014 - Kegel8 & Nickel Allergies

Monday 28th April sees the start of Allergy Awareness Week, and we’re raising awareness of nickel allergies. Do you find that after wearing metal jewellery your skin becomes red, itchy or inflamed? Are you one of the many women who can only wear gold because anything less will leave your ears sore? Or, do you find that the button on your jeans leaves you with a red mark on your stomach?

Chances are, this is your skin having an adverse reaction to the nickel in the metal, but many women don’t realise that they have a nickel allergy until they use their Kegel8 for the first time and find that they experience discomfort due to the nickel found in medical grade probes. But we've found the solution…

Bowel Cancer Awareness Month - Know The Facts

Bowel Cancer Awareness Month - Know The Facts

It seems like everything causes cancer these days.  Just last week there were reports citing mouthwash as a potential risk.  That’s right; mouthwash!  Isn’t that what we use to kill germs and keep our mouths healthy?

 

There’s not a day that goes by without news of something we’ve enjoyed or undertaken for years threatening to cause us harm.  So, how do we know what we should and shouldn’t be doing?  Well, there’s a definite difference between being paranoid and being vigilant.  That’s why the entire month of April has been declared as annual Bowel Cancer Awareness Month; so that you have the facts.

Why Use A Manual Pelvic Floor Toner?

Why Use A Manual Pelvic Floor Toner?

So you’ve been told that you need to do your pelvic floor exercises? Maybe you’ve just had a baby, maybe you’re suffering from some leaks, or maybe you just want to get your muscles strong, healthy and in great shape.

But, it’s not always easy to do your manual pelvic floor exercises, and every day we get calls from Kegel8 ladies asking for advice about whether they are using the right muscles, how often they should be exercising and how long they should be ‘lifting and squeezing’ for. That’s where a Kegel8 manual pelvic floor toner comes in.

Happy St Patrick’s Day from Kegel8!

Happy St Patrick’s Day from Kegel8!

Oh to have the luck of the Irish!

We know that the odd glass of Pinot Noir with our evening meal is harmless.  Indeed, a single glass of red wine could actually be good for us.  And we’ve all met those people who insist they could live on Guinness, because it’s “full of iron”. 

Well, it’s true that an alcoholic beverage here and there won’t do us any harm; but where do we draw that all important line?  What if one drink turns into two, then three, then... alright; you get the picture.  But, today is one of the biggest drinking days of the year, and we’re certainly not suggesting that everyone becomes teetotal; it’s how we manage it and take care of ourselves that counts.

No Smoking Day 2014 at Kegel8

Are you fanatical about fags, crazy about cigarettes, or simply a victim of your own dependency?  There’s no doubt about it; when it comes to smoking, giving in to temptation is a risky business.

 

We’re all aware of the heath implications; they’ve been well documented over the years.  Why then, do so many of us continue in pursuit of our daily nicotine ‘fix’ regardless?

10 Facts You Should Know About Perimenopause

10 Facts You Should Know About Perimenopause

Ladies, we all know what the menopause is, but did you know that our bodies enter a stage called perimenopause as much as 10 years before the ‘true’ menopause (which we don’t ‘officially’ enter until we haven’t had a period for 12 months). Read on to learn more about the perimenopause, and learn even more about it from a singing uterus in the video below (yes really!)…
