The Importance and Power of The Pelvic Floor
Featuring Dr. Edythe Heus Founder of Rev6
“Doctor, why are you prescribing exercises for my menstrual problems?”
Written by Dr. April Graham

My patients visit me with a variety of health problems including digestive distress, urinary dysfunctions, menstrual issues, endometriosis, digestive distress, anxiety, depression, and low back or hip pain. They expect that I will help them with nutrition and give them supplements to help resolve their problems. What they don’t always expect is a prescription for pelvic floor work. Here is why this pelvic floor work is an integral part of their prescription:
Your pelvic floor is essentially three layers of muscles and connective tissue (including fascia), that has nerves, blood vessels and lymph vessels from running through it. Your pelvic floor is resilient, elastic, and sensory. We believe there is a branch of the vagus nerve that extends to the pelvic floor. This is important because your vagus nerve is responsible for your digestion, respiratory function, and even your mood.
