Upwards of 8 million women suffer from insterstitial cystitis (IC), a chronic bladder condtion that can be extremely painful and debilitating and is typically treated with one prescription medication that not only provides little relief but also causes hair loss.
Studies show that 92% of IC patients experience significant relief of one or more symptoms with whole-leaf, freeze-dried oral aloe vera. 68% report substantial improvement in pelvic pain, urethral burning, and urgency and frequency of urination.
Special guest, Heather Florio, CEO of the company Desert Harvest is with us today to discuss the connection between Interstitial Cystitis/Bladder Pain Syndrome (IC/BPS) and the symptom relieving benefits of Desert Harvest Super-Strength Freeze-Dried Oral Aloe Vera. IC/BPS is a chronic inflammatory condition of the submucosal and muscular layers of the bladder. The cause of this condition is currently unknown and the condition is regarded as a diagnosis of exclusion.
Desert Harvest's product is unique in that the high concentration of nutrients adhere to the bladder mucosal lining, preventing potentially irritating solutes in the urine from reaching the bladder wall. Because aloe vera is antibacterial, antifungal, antibiotic, anesthetic, antispetic, antiviral, antimicrobial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory, and because there are no harsh side effects, it adds many more elements to the pain relief and improvement in day to day life for sufferers.
