Lindsey Vestal has helped thousands of people overcome chronic pelvic health challenges like incontinence and pelvic pain. Her goal is to empower women and men to listen to the wisdom of their own bodies—without resorting to invasive surgeries or prescription drugs—so they can heal and get back to enjoying life again.

In this episode of Poised & Powerful Podcast, Lindsey and I discuss the following:

  • What a pelvic floor is, and where to get started exploring this part of your body so you’re not afraid of it.
  • How your daily activities - and bathroom habits - affect your pelvic floor. 
  • How to find the right pelvic floor therapist for you, who takes the time to listen to you and understand your concerns. 
  • How more muscle tone isn’t always better when it comes to the pelvic floor, and other pelvic floor myths debunked! 

Whether you’ve given birth or not, your emotions and experiences affect your pelvic floor, and we want everyone to be empowered with this information. Especially if you’re dealing with leaking, “sneeze pee”, chronic constipation, painful sex, or other pelvic health challenges - we don’t want you to be too embarrassed to seek help. Take care of your pelvic floor and it will take care of you!
