  • D Mannose and Marshmallow Tea

    Surprise surprise?! These actually seem to work.

    I"m to tired to write a lot here now but for those interested in trying these, and if Cystoprotek and other similar things haven't done ANYTHING give these a go.

    Basically my urinary pain is the only symptom of IC, but it can be maddening if I trigger it and flares are also terrible too. Nothing except drinking a lot of water has prevented the urinary burning from occurring.

    I decided since everything else has failed to try D Mannose with Marshmallow Tea, and you know what? It kinda worked the first week. Then when I changed the dose of D Mannose from 500MG 2x a day to 1000 MG 2x a day my pain dramatically decreased. It was pretty stunning to feel real results.

    So far I'm sticking to this by drinking 1 cup of tea before bed, one in the morning, and taking the D Mannose 1x500MG morning 1x500MG afternoon. My pains basically much lessoned than in the past.

    Even without drinking tons of water the pain is very low compared to before starting these two things. And I only began the tea later but noticed results with JUST the D Mannose.

    My plan is to continue this for awhile and see how it goes. The pains not GONE because things still trigger it but it's less and I feel almost normal sometimes.

    Frankly I don't care why it seems to work, it definitely helps. I plan to continue the marshmallow tea indefinitely when I feel ready to get off D Mannose.

    Thought I'd share my story

    Thanks for letting us know what your experience was with these two supplements. I was wondering if you are prone to uti's and this is why the dmannose is helping, or do you think it is just helping your IC overall? I tried it a long time ago and ended up with diarrhea so I stopped it. Have you noticed any side effect like that? Or is it just me?

      I can't do marshmallow root because I'm already taking a diuretic for high blood pressure and don't want to add another. I haven't had infections so haven't tried anything for that.

      I'm glad something seems to be helping you.

          I also started using d mannose in powder form and marshmallow root in pill form. It seemed to help me too. Sometimes I have a uti and other times the same pain, but no uti. I am going to keep taking these and hopefully keep feelilng better everyday. Lots of luck to you.

            The marshmallow root tea helped my a whole lot. I took it in small doses through out the day.

              I'm still using both these, so far the results seemed to slightly decrease, but then bam I felt them again. I'll continue on this and let ya know in a month how it is going. Pretty interesting.

              One thing that confuses me, if I drink coffee usually it will prevent my pain. Pretty weird huh? What that does to my kidneys idk lol Anyways just wanted to make that observation see if anyone else experiences the same thing.
