Re: Coke as a trigger???

It's good your eating healthy, but even healthy food can make a person flare. I can't eat bananas because I flare, which are great for potassium nor can I eat Brazil Nuts, which are loaded with selenium. My point is that you should take the time to go to the IC web site, download their guidelines an...

Re: Coke as a trigger???

kpatterson, everybody on this board has some kind of inflammation going on in their pelvic area. It's been proven time and time again that diet plays a huge part in this disease. Instead of "believing" that coke isn't the culprit, why don't you stop drinking coke and eating food you shouldn't be eat...

Re: What sets me off

Neue01, I had a regular allergy test and another one, whose name escapes me at the moment. I was found to be allergic to Navy Beans, but I don't eat them. There was nothing else of consequence. I've never gotten any of the symptoms you described. Regarding food, it's extremely important to maintain ...

Re: You Can Heal Your LIfe

Just like IC/CPPS is not a one organ disease, I personally feel that treatment for this disease needs to utilize more than one type of intervention. I've mentioned before about dealing with IC/CPPS using a multi-modiel approach and this definitily would include something like this. Cleaning out our ...

I'm not surprised. You can't trust any of those f***s in the pharma industry. They care about their profits, not our health.

Re: Spicy foods harmful for chronic bladder pain

That's interesting. I always knew that IC/CPPS is not a one organ disease, but I didn't know that the colon was involved. It makes sense, however, when you take into account how many guys have a change of symptoms, positive or negative, when they have a bowel movement. Maybe they'll figure out a way...

Re: IC Support Meeting in Orange County

I'm sorry that nobody was interested in attending the meeting. It was actually pretty good. I didn't pick up anything new really, but it was nice to sit with people that can relate to you. There were about nine people at the meeting. We had a nice discussion about the different things that people ar...

Re: Coke as a trigger???

All carbonated drinks area no-no. First, the ingestation of that much sugar is horrible for your body. Second, the ingredients are almost guarenteed to make you flare. One things that everybody needs to realize is that all of us have a real serious problem, that we need to take seriously. There is n...

Re: Hello, Strobers here

Hey Carld, I hear what you are saying, but honestly I can't let the other half of me quiet down. If I just lay down, I will never be able to put forth the energy to battle this. I think it's important to accept it, the fact that I'm sick, but not to the point that I don't do anything further about i...

Hello, Strobers here

I hope everyone is having a good day today. I had my appointment with the doctor at the Whitaker Clinic last week and she made various recommendations. We spoke for almost an hour. She asked good questions and actually listened to me. (how about that, a doctor who can actually LISTENS) She felt that...

Just wanted to introduce myself (Strobers Case)

My Last Month Hello everyone, Well, it has been an interesting month. I had been feeling about 90% better and then went out to eat and had what I thought was a safe sandwich, but after taking a couple of bites of it, I realized that the bread had a light sauce. I stopped eating it because I never ta...

Re: major pain

Hi Brett, Personally, I feel that the double masturbation session is what messed you up, even more than the booze. If you had been drinking milk and then had back to back orgasms, I wouldn't have been surprised if you flared as bad as you did. When you mentioned that the second orgasm "didn't feel a...

Re: Use of Anti-Inflammatory Prior to Climax

Ejaculation is what started me problem too. I won't go into it here, if you are interested you can read my case. It's pretty comprehensive. I went from a four month flare, to a three week flare, to an eight hour flare to no flare over the course of 15 months. Abstinence, my personal protocol and tak...

Re: My Last Month

One great piece of news is that I had another session with my hypnotherapist and I was able to masturbate with absolutely no flare. That is the first time I have not experienced discomfort after an orgasm in almost 15 months. Wow...I take it that you did the hypnotherapy and went home and did it :?...
