Women often experience uterine prolapse, a condition in which muscles and ligaments around the uterus become weakened and sag out of position. Uterus basically separates the bladder from the rectum, and according to nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, uterine prolapse can lead to several health problems for both organs, including lower abdominal pain and heaviness, constipation and difficulty urinating.
Diwekar, who often shares important health and fitness tips, shared information about uterine prolapse, what it puts at risk and how to support their uterus in her latest Instagram post.
What puts women at risk for uterine prolapse?
According to the expert, women are most at risk of uterine prolapse during menopause because they are weak around the pelvic floor and lower body. Other than this, age and delivery are two other risk factors that contribute to uterine prolapse.
Posting the video explaining the complication, Diwekar mentioned the exercises and foods beneficial for uterine health in the caption. She said exercises such as “cycling, squats, inversions and kegel” and food items such as “ragi and rajgeera, local berries, curd chutney and kharvas” ensure good uterine health.
The nutritionist said that you should do Kegel exercises 5-10 times a day and at least 5 squats a day. In addition, one can also practice the Brazilian fitness test. This is basically a sit and stand exercise, you have to first sit cross-legged on the floor, then stand up and sit down again. Repeat the movement. The expert also suggested that women should do at least two days of strength training and two days of cycling, as this strengthens the lower body.
She said to watch their attitude. “Make sure you’re standing up straight and your front and back are parallel to each other,” Diwekar said.
In the video, she also emphasized the importance of rest for women. “Rest for at least 20 minutes every afternoon. It will improve hormonal balance, recovery and health of the uterus,” Diwekar concluded the clip.
