With this article I will provide you with a list of all the remedies I tried for my interstitial cystitis. I will explain how to apply the remedy and how that remedy is supposed to work.
Many of these remedies have helped many people, but I can’t give you any guarantees. As I’ve said before, regular consumption of quercetin with bromelain has provided me personally the greatest benefits. But everyone will be different so don’t give up hope if it doesn’t work for you and move on to another therapy.
I always suggest you consider an interstitial cystitis natural treatment when considering various drugs and their side-effects.
Supplements for Interstitial Cystitis
Quercetin is my favorite of the interstitial cystitis natural remedies as it both reduces inflammation and helps prevent infection. There is a much clinical evidence supporting its use. If you have a sensitive stomach, I suggest you read my article about quercetin side-effects before trying it.

Nutrition for Interstitial Cystitis
Isolate & Eliminate
Food sensitivities are often the cause of chronic inflammatory conditions. Use an elimination and challenge diet to determine food sensitivities.
Consume only unrefined and unprocessed foods. Include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, seeds, nuts, olive oil, and cold-water fish (salmon, tuna, sardines, halibut, and mackerel).
Avoid Sugars And Processed Foods
Stay away from sugar, dairy products, refined foods, fried foods, junk foods, some beans (fava, lima, black, soy) and caffeine. Coffee, chocolate, alcohol, carbonated drinks, citrus fruits, and tomatoes often worsen symptoms.
Drink Plenty of Water
You should drink about fifty percent of your body weight in ounces of water daily. So if you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink about 75 ounces of water each day.
Herbs for Interstitial Cystitis
Herbal remedies for Interstitial Cystitis an provide natural leaf through a regular regiment of consumption. But just like with all medications, taking more is not better and overdosing on even natural herbs can lead to serious illness.
Try these herbs for interstitial cystitis natural treatment:
Try 30 mg standardized extract triterpenes three times a day. Theoretically it improves the integrity of connective tissue by stimulating production of glycosaminoglycans, an integral component of the mucous layer in your bladder.
I suggest trying the following as a tea or infusion:

Provides your urinary system a soothing diuretic and antiseptic.
Provides soothing demulcent properties. I recommend you try it as a cold infusion. Soak the herb in cold water for several hours, strain and then drink.

This is an astringent and mild diuretic believed to have tissue-healing properties.
