  • Iced Rooibos tea sugar free

    Boil one cup of water and add one bag of Rooibos tea (aka red tea)

    In the boil water add also 1 tea spoon of stevia leave or a pinch of stevia white powder. (this will add sugar taste without calories)

    I do not react to Stevia but you may have to try it.

    Because I am not to sensitive to lemon, I add a little lemon.

    Remove tea bag and chill in the fridge.

    Serve on ice

    Enjoy
    Sorry if my english is not perfect. My first language is french.

    Current treatments:
    -IC diet
    -Elmiron 300mg
    -Elavil 20mg at night
    -Ditropan 5mg if needed (mostly in menstrual flare)
    -Alesse Continuous use birth control pills
    -Pyridium if needed
    -Tradamol if needed
    -Tylenol codeine if needed

    I also take

    Avapro high blood pressure
    Maxalt migraine
    Benadryl for allergies

    It's take 2 years before I got my diagnostic. I am the lucky one that Elmiron help a lot. Frequency and Urgency make me crazy at first. And after 1.5 years, burning in my bladder coming.

      I have never tried it!! but I will have to! Im scared to try anything thats not peppermint or chamomile lol... is it relativley good for IC?
      28 yrs old,

      I have little to no problems now with my bladder, unless I am very stressed out, I forget to take Elmiron for a few days, or I eat or drink something that I know is a trigger...(i.e) like eating a tomato or drinking tea.... Took a long time to get here, but it IS possible to feel good again I just want people who are new to know that IT CAN get better, and for every one person who is suffering, there are hundreds of others who feel GREAT because they have control of thier IC.

      What Works: Tylenol 3's, Pyridium, Elmiron (Going on 4 years now!) HOT showers!!!

      Medications/ Vitamins: Elmiron-100mg 4x's daily Tylenol 3's/Advil (flaring) Vitamin D, WILD salmon oil 4x gels in the morning, Women's ONE a DAY multivitamin (the gummy kind doesn't make me flare) and PROBIOTICS!

        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
        where there is hatred, let me sow love;
        when there is injury, pardon;
        where there is doubt, faith;
        where there is despair, hope;
        where there is darkness, light;
        and where there is sadness, joy.
        Grant that I may not so much seek
        to be consoled as to console;
        to be understood, as to understand,
        to be loved as to love;
        for it is in giving that we receive,
        it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
        and it is in dying [to ourselves] that we are born to eternal life.

          Thanks,

            I drink this tea. I make it like regular ice tea. Boil the tea in water then when cooled I add sugar. You can probably do this with any tea you can tolerate.
            Daughter your faith has made you well,go in peace, and be healed of your disease.(Mark 5:34)

            Tried:
            Detrol:only took one pill and it made me sick
            Elmiron:caused horrible pain(took 1 week)
            CystaQ:caused alot of burning and pain(only took one pill)
            Wellbutrin:only on it for three days as it caused alot of bladder pain
            Elavil:Took one pill and it caused a flare that lasted almost two weeks. It was the longest flare I've ever had. Never again..ouch
            Prelief:made my bladder burn and feel tingly.

            Take:
            Uracyst:Started May 19 2011
            Enablex:take one pill daily with no issues
            Naproxen:for pain as needed
            Baking Soda with water:as needed and it's a God send. It brings down my pain within 20 mins.
            Venofer: Started April 2012 by IV for low Iron. I do not tolerate oral Iron so this is the route I had to take.Does not bother my bladder but did have other side effects. I take Benedryl with each treatment to avoid side effects.
            Supplements:Whey Protein powder daily
            Dessert Harvest Aloe It has been helping alot but I can only take it every two days as my "die off" reaction has been severe.
