Interstitial Cystitis and Good Nutrition


One of the most easily misdiagnosed health conditions for women is IC or Interstitial Cystitis. ďWhatís that,Ē you ask? Hopefully youíll never have to know personally. But for over 700,000 American women, itís like having a chronic bladder infection Ė everyday, all the time.

Women who suffer from the Symptoms of IC find themselves making the rounds from one specialist to another usually being treated for a recurrent bladder infection. But what separates IC from a bladder infection is that there is no active bacteria associated with IC. Thatís why antibiotics donít work.

IC is a chronic inflammation of the lining and walls of the bladder and there is yet no known cause or cure. Some suspect itís a result of environmental allergies, food sensitivities, an autoimmune response or an association with other chronic illnesses like fibromyalgia.

More than likely, this disease has a lot to do with our modern diet of highly processed, nutritionally devoid foods and poor eating habits. There's no known cure, but regardless of this, good nutrition can only help to alleviate the condition and allow the bodyís immune system to begin the healing process.

It's best Ė even for those of us who donít have IC Ė to follow a nutritious diet including whole grains, fruits, vegetables, lean meats and dairy, fish and clean water. Avoid processed foods and high acid foods and drinks like those with caffeine, tomatoes, vinegar, red meats and chocolate.

Supplement your diet with good whole food nutritional supplements that include essential fatty acids and omega-3 oils with EPA and DHA. (Go to www.omega3fattyacids.info for more information and to see an IC success story. Nutrients like EPA, DHA and bioflavonoids have been shown in studies to act as a natural anti-inflammatory. If you can decrease the inflammation of the bladder, you've taken a big step toward overcoming IC.
