Root Causes of IC

Updated: Nov 25, 2019

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.
