Interstitial Cystitis



Interstitial Cystitis / Bladder Pain Syndrome (IC/BPS) is complex. While some patients have visible lesions on their bladder wall, others may have a completely normal bladder. Some struggle with pain, while others have just frequency or urgency. Why? Because structures beyond the bladder are often underlying cause of bladder symptoms. Today, clinicians perform a much more comprehensive diagnostic workup to study not only the bladder, but the pelvic floor muscles and more. Learn more about IC on our health education website - Interstitial Cystitis Network

*It's not unusual for some to have sensitivities to various ingredients. Please review the label carefully for any known allergens. We suggest starting small. Try one capsule and see how your body handles it. If you feel good, try one a day for a week and again assess. If you are doing well, you can gradually increase to the manufacturers recommended dosages. Of course, if you struggle with any side effects, stop the supplement and talk with your physician.
