Interstitial Cystitis (IC) is a chronic condition causing bladder pressure, bladder pain, and sometimes pelvic pain. Other symptoms can manifest including high urinary frequency and painful urination. The pain ranges from mild discomfort to severe pain that can prevent people from having a normal job and leave them in a debilitative state. The condition is a part of a spectrum of diseases known as bladder pain syndrome or BPS. Bladder pain syndrome is no longer considered a rare disorder. Every year, in the United States alone, there are 200,000 newly reported cases of Bladder Pain Syndrome. Approximately 4-12 million people (Source: J. Quentin Clemens. Male Pelvic Pain. International Pelvic Pain Society 18th Annual Scientific Meeting on Chronic Pelvic Pain) have IC in the United States alone. Globally, the numbers can reach almost 80 million. Painful bladder syndrome is often difficult to treat. Antibiotics have not been shown to help with Bladder Pain Syndrome (Mayo Clinic Study), which leaves patients with dangerous prescription options like Elmiron or risky surgical options like hydrodistension (stretching your bladder with water) or removing your bladder completely. For many people, these options are too invasive or too risky. While there is no cure for BPS, there is hope. One clinic is finding success reversing patients’ symptoms by an average of 87% in just 6 months using natural protocols that do not involve prescriptions or surgery.
