Interstitial Cystitis | Bladder Pain Syndrome

Interstitial cystitis (IC)/bladder pain syndrome (BPS) is a chronic bladder health issue. It is a feeling of pain and pressure in the bladder area. Along with this pain are lower urinary tract symptoms which have lasted for at least six weeks, without having an infection or other clear causes.

Common symptoms include:

  • Pain, sometimes severe, in your pelvis or between the vagina and anus in women.
  • Pain between the scrotum and anus in men (perineum).
  • Chronic pelvic pain.
  • A persistent, urgent need to urinate.
  • Frequent urination, often of small amounts, throughout the day and night (up to 60 times a day).

The medical community says there is no cure for IC and only recommend “managing symptoms” with pain drugs or other drastic surgeries or therapies. But we at the Forbidden Doctor baulk at such a thing! Our protocols address the foundational reason for chronic cystitis and we always expect the body to heal, given the right nutritional help.

Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, a medical doctor with two postgraduate degrees: Master of Medical Sciences in Neurology and Master of Medical Sciences in Human Nutrition, explains that chronic cystitis originates from a bad gut microbiome:

“Urine is one of the venues of toxin elimination from the body. In gut dysbiosis, large amounts of various toxins are produced by pathogens in the gut and absorb into the bloodstream through the damaged gut wall. Many of these toxins leave the body in urine: accumulating in the bladder, this toxic urine comes into contact with the bladder lining. The beneficial bacteria in the bladder and urethra maintain a protective mucous barrier, largely made from sulphated glucosaminoglycans, produced by the cells of the bladder lining. As this layer gets damaged, toxic substances in urine get through to the bladder wall causing inflammation and leading to chronic cystitis. This usually starts as baby, sometimes as young as the age of 3 months, when they get their first urinary infection. As her gut flora, vaginal flora and the flora of urethra and the bladder are not corrected, she’ll suffer from urinary infections all her life and eventually developed chronic cystitis.”

Dr. McBride recommends doing the GAPS diet and protocol to foundationally correct this problem. We also agree, and recommend you follow the GAPS diet (here on our website) for a few months, or for quicker relief, follow the protocol below for severe crisis pain and/or to help you avoid IC in the future.

By unleashing the Forbidden Doctor within, this protocol gives support to a body healing itself.

  • The protocol above is designed to address your issues at the foundational level, and not to treat disease. This means, in our opinion, most of our health problems, short of accident or trauma, are of a dietary nutritional deficiency. The listed protocol or supplement provides your body with essential micro and macronut­­­­rients to help and assist normal nutritional balance.
  • Daily dosage are in ( ) parenthesis for most protocols; for example (6) means take 6 per day, but spread it out by taking half in the morning and half in the evening. Some protocols will have more specific instructions to follow.
  • MediHerb products, shown in italics, often speed healing response and should be considered for most protocols unless contraindicated.
  • We recommend adding the General Health Daily Fundamentals pack to each protocol. This adds in the critical foundational nutrition each protocol needs. It contains Catalyn––an entirely whole-food and glandular broad-spectrum multivitamin, Trace Minerals-B12, and Tuna Omega-3 pearls for your DHA and EPA omega 3 fatty acids daily requirements.
  • Spacing out the daily doses throughout the day improves absorption and is strongly recommended.
  • Most supplements should be taken with food except for PMG’s, most calcium products, Gastrex, Chlorophyll Complex™, Okra Pepsin E3, Cholocol II and Zymex II. Also, most herbs work more efficiently if taken away from food.
  • Be advised that these nutritional and herbal products are not intended as a primary therapy for any disease, but rather to provide nutritional and herbal support to help normalize body physiology and repair.
