IC and Cooling Drink

IC and Cooling Drink

The inflammation that occurs with your IC bladder pain syndrome(interstitial cystitis, vulvodynia, chronic prostatitis, GERD, IBS, and fibromyalgia) as we’ve talked about in the past is from the hot and mobile qualities from an energy science viewpoint

As you know this pain can be excruciating and unrelenting causing undue stress on relationships and plans

And there are things that we have discussed that can help with temporary relief of symptoms  But what would it be like it you lived a life without any bladder symptoms at all  This is the cure of the apparent curable condition of IC

The Hot Quality and Cooling Off

As we’ve mentioned before the human energy anatomy Ayurveda says that there are three energy patterns that give us function  The Vata, Pitta, and Kapha physiologic energies gives the body movement, transformation, and stability respectively

Pitta the energy of transformation is the only one of the three energy patterns that has the hot vibrational frequency  This energy of transformation is responsible for your flares  Makes sense doesn’t it?  Hot transforms right?   But too much of this energy produces IC   Burning wood, burning thoughts, burning stomach, burning bladder, burning pelvis, burning vagina  Holy smoke!  Burned up relationships!

This is the energy that slso makes us competitive but if more hot enters into the equation it leads to aggressive behaviors that turn people off

Choosing Hot

So when it’s hot in the environment the same hot is aggravated in our own mindbody energy field   And when you eat trigger foods the same thing happens whether we can appreciate it or not  That’s why the food guidelines are so important because sometimes you can’t appreciate what’s happening

The hot from the sun is never as long term provoking as the hot that we ingest   As I’ve discussed in other blogs consumption of the hot quality has a much longer staying power of influence  This is a very important point since the physiology is affected literally for 35 days after a trigger food is chosen to be ingested

What happens when too much hot is in the energy physiology? You guessed it! INFLAMMATION

What To Do  What To Do

Sooo…. here’s a recipe for a delicious cooling herbal cocktail that you may find valuable particularly during flare seasons  But NO ice because ice is not nice

2T of aloe vera gel(NOT the juice)

2oz of pomegranite juice

2oz of water

Chug a lug! Hmmmm delissios

    Dr. Dean, I received an email today regarding IC and a cooling drink. When I clicked on “read more” the connection did not work. In a previous email you mentioned an herbal drink with aloe vera gel and pomegranite juice. Is this the drink you were referring to in my email today? I thought pomegranite juice would likely cause a flare!

    diet is great but this is more than that. I’ve had tremendous success by going on high dose nutraceuticals/amino acid/mineral and others to increase adrenal function and serotonin levels in the gut.
    on high dose vit c too and no problems . told me to stop taking b-6. Wrong again.. all western med Uros advice was crap. and that IC diet list is crap. Most everything any have to say with IC is crap. late dx for me, bladder perforated. (because it took a decade for any dumb doc to listen, and that happened only because I demanded they look at my bladder) now, my retention is great, pee like a horse. rarely a flare. Getting my life back, no drugs, no western med. go functional med, only way..

    i have been trying to find out if getting botox injections, in the facial area can cause a flareup of of my IC. The last time i had the facial injections, i had a flare up. Dont know if it was a coincidence, or if the botox caused it. What is your opinion? Thank you very much!
