Safe Solutions for Treating: Bladder Leakage, Painful Intercourse, Sexual Heath & Prolapses

Wednesday, February 21, 2024

Hosted by Dr. Michelle Willis, ND



When the vaginal tissue gets weakened (from childbirth &/or low hormone levels or estrogen blocking drugs), women can experience a multitude of problems ranging from:

  • waking in the night to urinate
  • recurrent bladder infections
  • quality of life issues from bladder leakage
  • constipation from a prolapse
  • weak orgasms
  • loss of intimacy

I have now been working for 17 years seeing women experiencing these symptoms. We go through enough in this world as women, we certainly don’t need ANY of these additional stressors dragging us down. Especially when there are good and relatively simple answers.

In this lecture, I will explain the causative factors for bladder leakage, painful intercourse & pelvic prolapses. I will provide a variety of solutions for these common issues with an emphasis on laser therapy. My goal is to help you live your optimal quality of life.

What's New at IHC

BC Cervical Cancer Screening Update

Traditional pap testing for cervical cancer screening, has now transitioned to HPV testing in BC.

What does this mean for BC residents? The transition to HPV testing will occur slowly over the next few years. If you are due for your next pap test, and have no history of abnormal pap smears, you can order an at home self-screening HPV test in replacement of your pap test. Alternatively, you can make an appointment with your doctor, and we will collect a liquid-based sample that will be triaged at the lab for either HPV or pap test, depending on your age. If either is flagged as positive or abnormal, further testing will be run on the same sample. While this new screening process may seem complicated or overwhelming, our doctors are here to help guide you through the process and ensure you stay updated on your optimal cervical cancer screening program.

Dr. Rurak is excited and honoured to have presented at the 13th annual ONCANP conference in Arizona this past weekend.

She updated clinicians regarding the importance of breast cancer prevention and screening. This is a reminder to us women on the importance of staying up to date on both cervical cancer screening and breast cancer screening.

The Benefits of Testing Fasting Insulin Levels 

Fasting insulin levels can offer valuable insights into various aspects of our well-being. Fasting Insulin is a reliable indicator for identifying insulin resistance, a condition that precedes the onset of type 2 diabetes. By recognizing insulin resistance early, individuals and healthcare professionals can implement proactive measures to manage and potentially reverse this metabolic imbalance. Insulin levels play a crucial role in fat storage. Elevated insulin levels are often associated with weight gain and obesity. Insulin resistance contributes to atherosclerosis and hypertension, highlighting the importance of monitoring insulin levels in assessing cardiovascular health. Testing your fasting Insulin is a cost effective, simple test completed at life labs and only requires a 10 hour fast. Consultation with healthcare professionals is crucial for interpreting test results and developing personalized health strategies.

From the Cancer Care Centre

I have a very exciting announcement from the CCC!

Thanks to the kind donations to the IHC CCC Research Department (yes, we offer charitable receipts!), we have been able to hire two researchers, Dr. Sara Izadi, PhD and Lisa McQuarrie, MSc (statistician). Both Sara and Lisa currently work doing research for the BC Cancer Agency.

To kick off 2024, we had our very first IHC Research Department meeting. In attendance were:

  1. Dr. Gurdev Parmar, ND, FABNO(USA), Principal Investigator
  2. Dr. Sara Izadi, PhD, Research Associate
  3. Lisa McQuarrie, MSc, statistician
  4. Mark Elderfield, Managing Director
  5. Dr. Sarah Denotter, ND, MS, Research Assistant (absent)

Dr. Izadi and Lisa have already started their work getting our 10-year cancer research published. They will be starting with the publication of our data on glioblastoma multiforme (brain cancer) and stage 4 colorectal cancer. It has already become apparent how capable these two researchers are, and that our IHC CCC research work has now officially begun.

Moving forward, the goal is to build a robust research department that conducts well designed prospective research to disseminate data on what we all see every day in our clinic, good clinical outcomes. Something that naturopathic and integrative medicine needs, the dissemination of our knowledge and results.

I look forward to providing more updates on our ongoing and new research projects over the coming months.

On another note, most of you know already that I am taking a 3-month sabbatical from February 1st to May 1st, 2024. Here are a few housekeeping items for my patients:

  • My current resident Dr. Sarah Denotter, ND, MS, will be looking after all the follow-up visits, examinations, and treatment oversight.
  • Dr. Kevin Sclater, MD will be looking after much of the advanced symptom management and palliative care needs.
  • All new cancer patients will be seen by one of our incredible CCC docs, Drs Soles, Rinas or Rurak.

Until next month!

Dr. Gurdev Parmar, ND, FABNO(USA)

Iron Infusions

Do you have chronically low iron and oral supplementation just does not seem to work? Are you pregnant and struggling with fatigue and low ion? Or do you have surgery coming up and want to heal well afterwards? If you answered yes to any of these questions then an iron infusion might be just what you need.

Recognition of Boswellia in Conventional Medicine

We love to see conventional medicine getting excited about herbs! Some of our most important chemotherapies can be traced back to herbs.

"Extracts of a plant used in traditional medicine for centuries [Boswellia] have shown anti-proliferative effects against breast cancer in an early-stage clinical trial."

We’re so excited to see this in the news! At IHC, Boswellia has been part of our cancer treatment plans since day one.
