Product description

Interstitial cystitis, or painful bladder syndrome, is a common and highly debilitating condition that Western medicine finds notoriously difficult to treat. Blending ancient and modern holistic medical traditions from both East and West, Philip Weeks guides the reader through the process of managing their symptoms effectively using a simple yet powerful combination of natural techniques, nutrition and herbal medicine. Applying his deep understanding of the principles of Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, he provides clear explanations of specific holistic methods and techniques, along with step-by-step instructions for introducing them to daily life and simple, clinically-tested recipes. A chapter is devoted to men with interstitial cystitis and prostate or pelvic pain, and the book also looks in a holistic way at effective natural treatments for common co-existing conditions, including allergies, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and chronic fatigue. This pragmatic and compassionate self-help guide will empower those with interstitial cystitis to gain control over their symptoms and achieve greater physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. It will also be of interest to complementary, alternative and mainstream health practitioners involved in treating or supporting those with the condition.
