Painful Bladder also known as Interstitial Cystitis (IC) is multi-faceted. Some spend thousands of dollars, visit multiple specialists and still find no relief.
Nutrition and Lifestyle changes made a HUGE difference in my healing journey.
I hope this list helps you connect some dots and leads you closer to finding your root cause.
* Remember if you just take medicine it does NOT stop the inflammation or address what is causing the inflammation to begin with.
Health related/conditions associated with IC -
Diet - Eating processed and pro- inflammatory foods causing inflammation
Alcohol – acidic & fermented
Birth Control Pills
Injury or Trauma to Bladder
Chronic UTI Infections
Stress is a big flare trigger
