  • bovine colostrum

    Hi, Has anyone had success with bovine colostrum? I read about it and it sounds easy to use?
    Diagnosed with IC in September 2010, after suffering from chronic UTI's. I suffer from pretty bad insomnia as well.
    Prosed in the beginning of diagnosis. Cysta- Q helped heal my bladder.
    Amitriptyline (discontinued now, but was very very helpful), and Macrobid to maintain pain relief and get some sleep. Prelief and Marshmallow Root capsules/ or tea leaves, daily to maintain pain relief.
    Lyrica and Pristiq to maintain bladder urgency and help with nerve pain and sleep.
    IC diet is my life now. Stress reduction is a MUST to survive this illness.

    No clue, what is it and how is it used?

      It's the "first milk" from a newly calved cow, before the milk comes in. Several years ago I asked my primary care doctor and he said it's no more nutritious than regular milk, but much more expensive.

            I read it can heal your bladder. I thought it would be something to try. Thanks everyone.

              I have heard maybe like 2 people with IC say that it put them in remission after like 1-2 years of taking it. but have heard alot people also say that it doesnt work. There is no scientific proof that it works for IC. it doesnt mean that it cant work. I do hear more people say that it strenghtens the immune system and people get less colds and flus while on it. Im not planning to try it personally. I do believe that natural products can help certain conditions, but Im a bit skeptical when there is no clinical trial/study to back up the claims
              Diagnosed with IC October 2009- through bladder biopsy (no glomerations or hunners ulcers found, just irritation)

              I have moderate-severe IC

              Currently stopped taking all medications due to pregnancy

                Thanks, I think I'll try to find some more information on it from the health food stores before I try it. I'll let you all know if I find out anything else.

                  As Donna said, it's the first milk from a cow that has recently calved. It is full of maternal antibodies, which is important for the calf - those maternal antibodies will protect it from infectious disease until it's vaccinated. (Same goes for women and children...)
                  I don't know off-hand how it might work to "heal" the bladder. Maybe someone will conduct a research study on it someday... Best of luck if you try it!

                    Growth factors have been shown to help stimulate cell and tissue growth by stimulating DNA formation. They are found naturally and in high concentrations in Colostrum. Several studies show that these growth factors are capable of increasing T-cell production, accelerating healing.
                    When I was taking Colostrum my recovery time from flares was much shorter .
