Fiber & Laxatives

Jill Osborne, ICN Founder As IC patients quickly learn, constipation, diarrhea and/or IBS attacks often trigger bladder pain and discomfort. Throw in the regrettable side effect of constipation caused by many of our IC medications (i.e. Elavil), it's important that we use a fiber that keeps us regular without irritating the bladder or bowel. Many commercial fibers have coloring and preservatives that irritate the bladder (i.e. like Metamucil Orange flavor). Throw in the fact that IBS makes our bowel very sensitive to traditional fibers (i.e. like granola), and we're often not sure what to use.

The secret?? We need a fiber that is bladder friendly and soothing to the bowel. Luckily, Heathers Tummy Care has the perfect solution... Acacia Fiber. I use it myself and can honestly say that for the first time in 25+ years, I'm normal, regular and THANKFULLY pain free. - Jill O., ICN President
