Sleep Problems/ overactive bladder/ mitrovalve prolapse

I am writing this in regards to my mother who is 56 years old. Over the past year or so she has had a lot of problems sleeping. For a while it she not only couldnt sleep but she was also going to the bathroom every 30 minutes. After a while it got better, she was able to sleep but the overactive bladder continued, though only every hour or two. Lately though, mainly in the past two days, she hasnt been able to sleep at all and goes to the bathroom every 15 minutes.

A little background info, my mother is not overweight and eats EXTREMELY healthy. She is, for the most part, afraid to use modern medicine cures (such as vesicare), one of the reasons is because she is afraid it will be too strong for her. That is of course because of her mitrovalve prolapse, every medicine affects (effects?) her more than it would a normal person. She is also very naturopathic (sp?) and is much more inclined to try natural cures.

Any help/ advice would be AWESOME! I love my mother to death and I feel terrible for her because she is miserable right now. She has been to SEVERAL different medical professionals and has yet to find a cure/ treatment.

Thanks ahead!
