Mind Over Matter: Healthy Bowels, Healthy Bladder offered

MONROE — Women can take the evidence-based program, Mind Over Matter: Healthy Bowels, Healthy Bladder, offered through Green County ADRC.

More than half of women over age 50 experience issues with bladder or bowel control. These problems can be slightly bothersome or totally debilitating. For some women, the chance of embarrassment keeps them from enjoying many activities and can take control of their life. 

A class offered through the ADRC can help. Mind Over Matter: Healthy Bowels, Healthy Bladder is a workshop researched and developed through the University of Wisconsin Madison — School of Medicine and Public Health, designed to give women, age 50 and older, the tools they need to take control of their bladder and bowel symptoms. 

The workshop provides information, group activities, and simple exercises and dietary changes to practice at home. Note, women that are ages 50 and older and are not currently experiencing any bladder or bowel symptoms, are still able to benefit from this program to delay or prevent any bladder and/or bowel symptoms from developing.

Join us for the next upcoming offering of Mind Over Matter on the following dates: Monday, Nov. 7, Nov. 21 and Dec. 5.

Mind Over Matter: Healthy Bowels, Healthy Bladder, consists of three, 2-hour sessions, meeting every other week. All three sessions will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at the Kelch Aviation Museum & Airport located in Brodhead. It is highly encouraged to be able to attend all three sessions. 

This class is free of charge. Pre-registration is necessary and spots are limited. No in-county living requirements.
