  • IC Friendly Food in Mason Jar

    Anyone have some ideas for dry ingredients (ic friendly) to put in mason jars as gifts? Thinking it could be a good way of sharing ic friendly recipes with family and friends at Christmas.
    Tried Elmiron, Elavil, Atarax, Botox...with no success and/or adverse reactions.

    Current: self administered bladder installations (down to 2x a day per dr advice), Lamictal, Lexapro, Lorazepam, Zyrtec occasionally, Prelief, Tramadol, Oxycodone, Trimethoprim at bedtime, Gabapentin, Omeprazole, Flector patch, Tens Unit, warm baths, other forms of heat therapy, IC diet, Gluten/Wheat free diet, vitamins and Premarin because of hysterectomy and osteoporosis.

    Have difficulty getting pain under control from IC and other health issues. I've pretty much accepted it as part of my life.

    I am thankful for supportive family and friends. Not everyone is supportive all of the time, but I am so thankful for the support I do receive.

    I pray for healing for all and for a cure.

    How about oatmeal cookies with butterscotch chips? Or white hot chocolate mix (dry milk, powdered sugar, white chocolate powder), white chocolate chip cookies, canned homemade apple or pear sauce, homemade granola or trail mix with IC safe ingredients, peanut brittle, multi-colored popcorn,

    Not food: Lavender or Peppermint scented bath salts (Epsom salts is so cheap!), lavender or peppermint scented coconut oil (great in your hair as a conditioner!)...or if people are dog/cat lovers, jars with treats from bulk food at PetCo.

    Wow, you have me thinking!

    Did you know that up to 94% of interstitial cystitis patients find some symptom relief when they change their diet, and that dietary modification is recommended as a first line treatment for IC? Check out the IC Food List to get started!

      Thank you for the awesome ideas! They all sound great. I have a bit of an obsession with mason jars so I thought it would be good to use some for diy gifts. (I made soap pump jars last year) I've had my ic diagnosis for years but the diet restrictions are still misunderstood by most of my loved ones...which is totally my fault. I'm thinking this could be a fun way to expose them to more ic friendly foods. And I love the non-food ideas too! I think the Epsom salts is a great idea. Budget friendly gifts are very helpful.
      Thanks again!

        I have a friend who wrote a cookbook using the jars. It is out of print now but I just looked and there are used copies on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/096661190X

        I don't get anything for referring and neither does he. Just wanted to throw it out there!

          What great ideas. I had a neighbor give me homemade laundry detergent that was fantastic. Very mild and worked really really well!
