It’s Time to Talk About Women’s Health | Cassie Dionne | TEDxQueensU

The subject of women’s health is one that is oftentimes considered taboo. We see images of half-naked men and women day in and day out (yes, sex sells), but as soon as we start discussing female reproductive parts in a legitimate medical context people often become uncomfortable, believing topics related to women’s vulvas, vaginas, or pelvic health is something to be kept private. Unfortunately, our lack of discussion about women’s’ health has led to some very serious health consequences. Women are often left unaware of what is normal or abnormal or how they can better their health. Symptoms like incontinence, pelvic pain or pain with sex are incredibly common but do not have to be a woman’s norm – there is help. In fact, research shows pelvic health physiotherapy is an effective treatment for women to improve their pelvic and sexual health and can effectively help women live a life without pain, discomfort, anxiety or fear of their reproductive parts. Watch as Cassie Dionne, Pelvic Health Physiotherapist at Taylored Training Physiotherapy in Kingston, ON opens up the dialogue and talks about the absurdity of our current understanding of women’s health, what we all should know as women (and men!) regarding our pelvic and sexual health and what can be done if you experience symptoms. This talk will change the way you feel about the words vulva, vagina, pelvic health and sex! Cassie is a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist at Taylored Training Physiotherapy where her mission is to change the conversations we have around pelvic and sexual health. Cassie works with a wide range of clients including high level athletes, pre-and post-natal clients, and women of all ages and in all stages of life to help them feel and move their absolute best.

Cassie graduated from the Queen’s School of Rehabilitation in 2011 and has worked in the Kingston community since this time. In addition to her clinical work Cassie is working with researchers in the Queen’s Department of Psychology to further examine the importance of pelvic health physiotherapy as first line treatment for pelvic floor dysfunctions. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

    In discussion with my friend she said that she will never make payment to any medication when I ask why? She said four consecutive times she ordered and she didn't see any, I feel for her anyway because is not easy to be disappointed but, I told her my product is arriving US tomorrow according to DR RORPOPOR HERBAL on YouTube and it was so, not only that I got healed just within 17days of usage. And my friend who said over her dead body will she order for any medication is now asking me to give her the doctor number. May you live long to heal more souls…..🌿🌿🌿🌿

    I'm super excited, I finally got rid of my damn virus. I have been battling with this Herpes Simplex Virus for 2years. I have used some Antiviral drugs such as Acyclovir, Famvir and some other products I heard about here on YouTube such as Oregano Oil and Hydrogen Peroxide, friends this product did not cure me, It's really helped me in reducing pains during outbreaks. I finally got rid of the virus using the herbal protocol I ordered from Dr Alaho Olu on YouTube. DM the herbalist if you wanna be cured totally.

    Stay at home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority. @t
