  • Pumpkin seed oil

    A few days ago I started on Pumpkin seed oil after doing some research. All I can say so far is I highly recommend giving it a try. In a short time I've noticed about a 30% reduction in burning, urethral pain, and frequency. I've tried so many things over the years and I can honestly say this is the first time I've gotten my hopes up. I know we are all different and respond to different things but so far I would say this is well worth a try! Highly recommend.

        MelindaP which brand do you use? How are you doing these days? We spoke in may when my flare started (I had been in remission for three and a half years before)
        Long story short ,I have found the reason why I was flaring so much as I started with vaginal symptoms and I have been diagnosed with several vaginal infections along these months , the vaginitis is caused for intestinal flora overgrowth :ecoli, enterococcus, streptococcus, and klebsiella and they are detected by vaginal cultures(I ma not using any special laboratory for this .
        My ND thinks I have gut dysbiosis and of course vagInal dysbiosis(this last is obvious) I took a round of antibiotics in june and the first vaginal infection dissapeared but at the end of august I started having symptoms again and two new bacteria appeared , another round of antibiotics but this time it just killed those bacteria and two other growed . It is like a nightmare. I have been taking some antimicrobial herbs during 45 days under my ND guidance just to try getting rid of the excess of bad bacteria in my intestine and now I have started probiotics.I still feel my vagina is not well and that give me more bladder symptoms , but my bladder is a bit better that in may.
        How are you doing now ? Has the elmiron done the trick? Please tell me the brand of pumpkin oil you use.
        Hope you are doing a ton better,
        Hughs
        IC diagnosed by symptoms at the end of september 2011.
        Other conditions:Asthma (controled since 13 years old )

        PAST IC symptoms :frequency, urgency , bladder pressure and lately pain around the pubic area which increases when my frequency is lower.

        Past treatments: DMSO instills, rescue instills at home, MSM, Atarax , DETROL.,lorezapam, phisical therapy, cystistat instills and natural suplements under my ND attendance.

        First remission from november 2012 - august 2013 (what helped me most was my ND treatment as I got rid off intestinal candida that was the main culprint of my symptoms My remission ended with a UTI that was not detected on time and damaged my bladder again.

        Since augst 2013 till march 2015 I tried again cystistat instills (did not work this time, more natural suplements and even a long term antibiotic therapy .This last one antibiotic therapy only damaged me more.

        Since march 2015 till today taking elmiron and natural suplements and I am feeling really well latelly Hope to be in remission soon.In remission since november 2015. I wish it last forever.

          Hi there. I somehow missed your last post! I hope you are doing better at this point? Sounds like you have been through a nightmare! I still am managing my IC. Not in remission but it has been a bit better. I am also trying to heal my gut and taking probiotics as I feel this might be the root cause of my flare up. Please let me know how you are doing now.

            Hi Melinda! I also did not see your answer before. Glad you are doing better. As for me , I finally could manage my vaginal problems in December after using some vaginal ovules (first some with esential oils and then some with vaginal pre and probiotics) As I suspected, as soon as my vagina improved my IC improved a lot.
            Before Christmas I was started feeling very well and I have remained very stable and much better until last week(my frequency has reduced a lot (some days I only void six times per day and I can sleep seven hours without having to pee most of the nights) .
            But, because there is always a but, I had to take three days of antibiotic for a bronchitis that did not go away two weeks ago and I am just a bit more sensitive and of course afraid of candida, but hopefully am anticandida treatment I am going to start next week can keep it away. I think the Elmiron probably has started working again but I am also in a lot of suplements :the pumpink seed did not seem to do any difference but desert harvest aloe has helped a lot I am also on B complex , vitamin D, probiotics, zinc, melatonina, dmanosse and some others that I change every two months according to my ND suggestion.
            Hope a wonderful year is waiting for us
