Last week I’ve written about the role that chronic inflammation plays in chronic disease, including bladder conditions such as interstitial cystitis.
Today I’d like to look at lab tests for inflammation and also dietary options and supplements that may help reduce inflammation.
The Cystitis Diet Protocol
A body with a healthy immune system can fight off infectious organisms, including those causing cystitis. A healthy microflora is also supportive.
To keep the immune system working efficiently, our bodies need nutrients.
Therefore, it is wise to consume a diet high in fresh, nutrient-dense foods and low in nutrient-poor, calorie rich foods that deplete nutrients and weaken the immune system.
