HERBAL REMEDIES FOR INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS

00:40 Samina Kausar 10 Comments


Interstitial Cystitis known as painful bladder syndrome is chronic inflammation of the urinary bladder wall. It causes urgent, painful urination and pelvic discomfort. People with interstitial cystitis have a bladder wall that is inflamed and irritated (red and sore). This inflammation can scar the bladder or make it stiff. It also does not store urine well. In some cases, the walls of the bladder may even bleed slightly. This inflammation is almost always a result of infection, bruising or irritation. This inflammation is chronic and can be very severe as compared to the common cystitis. A few symptoms of this problem are frequency of urination, inability to control urination, pain in the lower abdominal area, pain during sexual intercourse, migraine muscle pains, and in men, discomfort or pain in the penis or scrotum. In many women, the symptoms get worse before their menstrual period. Stress may also make the symptoms worse, but it doesn't cause them. A true diagnosis is done by a Cystoscopy and possible biopsies of the inflammation to verify it is not cancer. Some studies show that certain alternative treatments may benefit people with interstitial cystitis. Though there are a lot of medicines available in the market, however, along with these you may adopt some herbal remedies. Herbal remedies are often found to be quite effective in treating urinary problems such as interstitial cystitis.

 HOME REMEDIES FOR INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS

Marshmallow root
Marshmallow root has anti-inflammatory soothing demulcent properties. This can be beneficial in treating interstitial cystitis. It soothes and protects the bladder wall, as well as the lining of the kidneys, urethra and entire urinary tract and also helps with incontinence by initiating the urine stream. The best way to consume marshmallow root for interstitial cystitis is as a tea. It’s easiest to make a large batch of tea in the morning and drink it at room temperature throughout the day. Extreme hot and cold temperatures can shock a sensitive IC body and lead to irritation.
Add 4 teaspoons of the dry cut root to a quart of water. Simmer slowly for 10-20 minutes, then strain. It will make about 4 cups. If you prefer to make on a per cup basis, use 1 tsp. of marshmallow root per 1 cup of water. It is best taken as a cold infusion; soak the same amount of herb in a quart of water overnight. Strain in the morning and enjoy throughout the day.
Corn silk
Corn silk (also known as maize silk), classified as Zea mays, is known to have diuretic and soothing properties Corn silk tea can be made from fresh or dried tassels, fresh being preferred but attention should be paid to whether the plants were sprayed with pesticides. Corn silk (Makai resham) tea or infusion can be made by pouring 1 cup (240 ml) of boiling water over 2 tsp (2.5 g) of dried corn silk. The mixture is covered and steeped for 10–15 minutes. You can sweeten with honey to taste and a dash of fresh lemon juice may also enhance the taste. The tea should be consumed three times daily. At maximum use for 10 days and then skip for 5 days.
Usnea
Usnea has soothing and antiseptic properties. Usnea provides infection prevention at those irritations. Muscle relaxation and soothing of the bladder lining are key to reducing IC symptoms.
Gotu Kola
Interstitial cystitis usually involves an excess of “damp heat,” leading to stagnation and inflammation in the body. Gotu kola has a cooling effect on the body and can help to rid the body of excess heat. Anxiety and stress are common amongst those with IC. Gotu kola can be both a causative factor and an outcome of the condition. 30 mg of this herb needs to be consumed thrice daily to yield effective results.
Horsetail
Horsetail herb tones and detoxifies. Horsetail has an astringent and mild diuretic with tissue-healing properties. Horsetail’s products may heal irritated bladder lining scars, Tea made from the herb prevent infection and swelling.
Aloe Vera
The soothing and anti-inflammatory effect of aloe vera provides you comfort from symptoms of interstitial cystitis. Aloe vera helps reduce the inflammation of the bladder that results from interstitial cystitis. This will reduce the pain and frequency of urination. Moreover, the cooling effect of aloe vera will have a soothing effect on the feeling of pain and irritation. It can be taken as a juice or in capsule form.  Try 100% Pure 2 oz Aloe Vera Gel or ½ cup of unprocessed Aloe Vera juice twice a day. You may add honey and lemon to get the bitterness out. You will see positive results within two days.
Dandelion
Dandelion has been used since centuries as a diuretic for flushing the bladder. Diuretics are those that promote urination. Excessive urination will flush out some of the microorganisms and free radicals. This will alleviate the symptoms of interstitial cystitis. You can take dandelion jelly or tea twice a day to get some comfort from the pain and discomfort of interstitial cystitis.
Licorice
Licorice root has strong anti-inflammatory and antibiotic property that alleviate the burning sensation associated with many urinary aliments including cystitis.  Eating a lot of licorice, however, can also have serious side effects like high blood pressure, so look for DGL licorice. (It does not contain the potentially dangerous glycyrrhizic acid.) DGL (deglycyrrizinated licorice) sold in health-food stores in chewable tablets or powder. Chewing a couple of tablets or taking a ½ of the powder in hot water as tea drinking thrice a day will reduce the pain and other symptoms of interstitial cystitis.
Uva ursi/Bearberry,
One of herbalists' favourite herbs used to tackle cystitis and prevent re infection is uva ursi or bearberry, (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi ). A small, evergreen shrub that grows on moors and mountains, the leaves act as a urinary antiseptic thanks to a chemical called arbutin. In the body, this is converted to hydroquinone, a related compound with known urinary tract antiseptic properties; a glucose. Uva ursi is said to be particularly effective against E.coli - but again, it works better when the urine is alkaline, so drink plenty of pure water and you must avoid all acidic food while taking it.
Castor oil packs
Castor oil packs can be applied for IC that has associated bladder cramping or pelvic discomfort. ! A castor oil pack exerts mild compression and tension on the skin to increase pore sizes. This allows the castor oil to enter through the hair follicle and reach deep into the dermis where circulation lies. It also prevents the substance from rubbing off or evaporating.
Evening Primrose oil
Evening primrose, or Oenothera biennis, is a fragrant North American herb with yellow flowers. The seeds are rich in volatile oil containing gamma-linolenic acid, or GLA. Applying Evening primrose oil reduces inflammation from IC and heals the mucous membranes in your bladder wall. Internal use of this herb may cause gas.
