  • Uqora

    Hi, has anyone heard of Uqora being used for Interstitial Cystitis? A friend of a friend is trying it, and asked if I've ever heard of it.
    Diagnosed Nov 2012 after birth of my daughter. I feel like IVF hormone injections triggered my debilitating IC symptoms, but that I had it mildly even before that and didn't realize it.

    Currently taking daily: probiotics, licorice root, vitex, vitaminB12, thyraxis, D3, Calcium/Magnesium, permeability factors, digestive enzymes. Nightly castor oil packs on my abdomen. I follow the IC diet, anti-inflammatory diet, gluten and dairy-free (most of the time), with as much organic, local food as possible.

    My approach is to try to get to the root of the problem, which according to everything I've read, is probably centered in the gut (read, chronic constipation my whole adult life). I have a list of things to try and keep checking things off my list. My inspiration has been Wendy Cohan's Better Bladder Book.

    There's more than one Uqora --- there are some ingredients that are questionable for an ICer, some that might be beneficial. On the beneficial side is D-mannose which can help avoid infections. Some of the things that concerned me were citric acid and green tea. Please read the labels carefully before trying.

    Please be careful.

    Stay safe
