SURVIVOR/ REVERSAL OF Interstitial Cystitis! What ever you do please tell your wife to try the Paleo diet. I was diagnosed at 19 and my life became a living hell. I was on multiple medication, couldn't engage in any form of activity and was starting to get food allergies to things that I had been eating all my life. My doctors response was to up the medication and give me stronger doses so that I was numb to all the pain I was constantly in. After my first month on Paleo I dropped my symptoms, yes, bloating and pelvic pain included, by 50%. After four months on the diet I went off all my medications completely with the help of my doctor and have started HEALING the damage this disease does. I am currently 23 and have never felt, looked or preformed better and healthier in my life. The support groups are not there to give hope, just to complain about new procedures that remove more body parts and how much the medication cost. I will always have to be extra careful with my health, but its a much better price to pay then being sick, miserable and paying a small fortune for medication that did nothing but make me worse. PALEO saved my sanity and life. If possible please pass this on to the husband who wrote in.
If there are any other success stories please post, others need to know that it can be reversed.
