Symptoms, conditions and causes

What are the causes for interstitial cystitis?

Interstitial cystitis is a condition where there is some kind of inflammation in your bladder that creates a lot of discomfort. This can be resolved by following a healthy diet and lifestyle.


  • Painful bladder

  • Urgency to urinate

  • Painful urination

Getting your body healthy

This condition has an unknown cause. And there is no officially stated remedy for it. However, I believe that if you become more healthy overall, this condition should resolve.


  • L-arginine (2 g/day on an empty stomach)

  • Avoid the following:

    • caffeine

    • alcohol

    • MSG

    • refined carbs

    • sugar

  • Do the Healthy Keto® diet

  • Do an intermittent fasting plan

Potential Cause #1: Low estrogen

If you have low estrogen it can cause bladder issues. This is because estrogen itself influences the sensation of urination in your bladder. Low estrogen can be caused by menopause or some kind of issue with the ovaries.


  • You can take Estrogen Balance with DIM Supplement

Potential Cause #2: obstruction (due to fibroids or enlarged prostate)

If you can’t empty your bowels there could be some obstruction or blockage in the bladder; it could be a fibroid (scar tissue) or caused by an enlarged prostate.


Let’s look at the remedies to reduce the fibroid.

  • Vitamin D3 (10,000 IU)

  • Vitamin K2 (100 mcg)

  • DHA (500 mg)

  • maitake mushroom

  • D-fraction supplement

Let’s look at the remedies to reduce prostate enlargement.

  • Reduce estrogen levels:

    • take cruciferous vegetables (natural estrogen blockers)

    • take DIM (concentrated cruciferous)

    • avoid dairy

  • Reduce insulin levels:

    • avoid refined carbs/sugar

    • avoid snacking

    • do Healthy Keto®

  • do intermittent fasting

Potential Cause #3: ANS dysfunction

The ANS, or autonomic nervous system, has to do with your general body response during periods of stress. It also relaxes your body and many of its organs during a rest period. ANS affects your bladder function and nerves. If you have dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system, you may have bladder problems including urine retention.


  • Consume vitamin B1:

• nutritional yeast

• benfotiamine

  • Take long walks outside daily (at least 45 minutes)

  • Improve your sleep (take naps If needed)

  • Avoid things/people that stress you out

  • Consume potassium
