Pelvic Organ Prolapse

    Anyone have experience with pelvic organ prolapse and experiencing improvement in symptoms after following Jack's protocols?

    Has Jack ever talked about this? What are his recommendations and has he talked about the science and cause behind them?

    I have grade 3 uterine prolapse as well as rectocele and enterocele. There seem to be so many theories on cause and opinions on how to help but it doesn't seem like solid science or evidence. So far everything I've tried hasn't really helped.

    They started a couple years after my first child was born. I've heard theories tied to hormones, muscle tone, ligament laxity, etc. I've seen a few doctors, physical therapists, pelvic specialists, tried the kegels, devices, pessaries, exercises, etc. Nothing seems to help much.

    That is tied to the dopamine levels in the pelvic wall. Women who rarely get their perineum in the sun suffer from this due to altered fiber type in the pelvic muscles.

    How to do pelvic floor muscle exercise using sunlight or PBM
    Once you can feel your pelvic floor muscles working, you can start exercising them in the light:

    • Pelvic floor muscle exercises can be done anywhere – while sitting, standing or lying down in the sun.
    • Squeeze and draw in the muscles around your anus (back passage) and vagina at the same time. Lift them UP inside. You should have a sense of “lift” each time you squeeze your pelvic floor muscles. Try to hold them strong and tight as you count to 8. Now, let them go and relax. You should have a distinct feeling of “letting go”. If you can’t hold for 8, just hold for as long as you can.
    • Repeat “squeeze and lift” and let go. It is best to rest for about 8 seconds in between each lift up of the muscles.
    • Repeat this “squeeze and lift” as many times as you can, up to a limit of 8 to 10 squeezes. This equals one set.
    • Try to do three sets of 8 to 10 squeezes each day.
    • I just got a new light unit built that is large enough where one can do this in any environment.
    While doing pelvic floor muscle training:

    • keep breathing
    • only squeeze and lift
    • do NOT tighten your buttocks
    • keep your thighs relaxed.
    Pelvic floor exercises are most effective when individually tailored and monitored. If you are not sure that you are doing the squeezes right, or if you do not see a change in symptoms after three months, ask for help from your family doctor, a Women's, Men's and Pelvic Health Physiotherapist or Nurse Continence Specialist. Doing this in sunlight works faster than it does with PBM.

    Thank you so much for the reply! I actually have been doing the pelvic floor exercises. I've seen a few different doctors and therapists, and the most recent has been very knowledgeable, though she stopped seeing patients in person due to the pandemic.

    I always wondered if it was hormonally linked given the tie in to me giving birth to my first born and developing the prolapses after and them worsening after weaning. Then they got better in the 3rd trimester of my second born and didn't come back until around the time he started to wean off nursing as well.

    My husband and I have been working on a way for me to get some sun in the buff in our backyard. So, it sounds like while I do that, I should do my pelvic floor exercises during that time, right? I have a routine that I do from my therapist that includes the ones you've described that I would do. Is it best to do that during the early morning sun before 10am or around solar noon considering I've never had those areas exposed to the sun before?

    That light unit looks amazing! Is there something like that available on a smaller scale for patient use at home for this purpose?
