Please suggest some natural cure for incontinence.

There are some steps you can take to avoid embarrassing incidents of incontinence. However, to call them a cure would hardly be correct. The first thing to do is to determine medically that your incontinence is not a result of any other physical problem. Once you have cleared the path on this, begin by voluntarily going to the restroom every hour, whether you feel the urge or not. This will reduce pressure on your bladder and not let it get full at all. Once your body is used to the hourly interval, switch to making it 90 minutes. When you reach that comfortably, make it two hours. Try to reach the normal period of time between trips to the bathroom, which is about 3-odd hours. Do it slowly and gradually.

If you are overweight or obese, try to shed the extra weight. This will help to reduce the pressure on your bladder as well. If you are a smoker, you should know that prolonged exposure to nicotine will begin to irritate the lining of your bladder. As a result of this, when you cough, you may release a few drops of urine. Avoid popular diuretics such as coconut water and grapefruit. These will make you want to go more often.
