Otherwise known as IC, this condition causes many different types of bladder irritation that can either be continuous or have a flare-up pattern. Most commonly, IC patients deal with pain with urination, urinary frequency, increased nighttime urination as well as a wealth of other unique symptoms. Interestingly, in Interstitial Cystitis, the patient has a negative urine test (meaning no bacteria is found in the bladder). Conventional medicine has no known cause for this condition, although recognizes that certain foods may trigger symptoms.
In Naturopathic medicine we have discovered several ways to decrease the frequency and intensity of IC flare ups, as well as heal the integrity of the bladder. Food sensitivity testing is incredibly beneficial for many IC patients. This greatly helps in identifying the foods in your diet that are contributing to the problem.
