Collection: Interstitial Cystitis

Interstitial Cystitis (IC) is a chronic condition characterized by bladder pain, urgency, and frequency, often resembling symptoms of a urinary tract infection.

Natural medicine approaches like dietary adjustments (such as avoiding potential trigger foods), stress management, and herbal supplements like marshmallow root or quercetin might provide some relief by potentially reducing inflammation and irritation, but individual responses vary, and consultation with healthcare professionals is important for an accurate diagnosis and to develop a comprehensive management plan that addresses both symptoms and underlying causes.
