Bladder health is an important part of overall health and well-being.
IC/PBS is a chronic inflammatory condition of the submucosal and muscular layers of the bladder. The cause of IC/PBS is currently unknown and the condition is regarded as a diagnosis of exclusion.
Because the etiology is unknown, there are no uniformly effective treatments nor is there a cure. Symptoms are similar to an acute urinary tract infection, and include pelvic pain, urethral pain, urinary urgency and urinary frequency.
An estimated 4 to 12 million people in the United States suffer from IC/PBS, 90 percent of whom are women. This is a conservative estimate because many people with IC/PBS are either misdiagnosed or undiagnosed.
Desert Harvest is unique in that the high concentration of nutrients in our Super-Strength Aloe Vera preserves the glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) which adhere to the bladder mucosal lining, preventing potentially irritating solutes in the urine from reaching the bladder wall. Desert Harvest Super-Strength Aloe Vera coats the bladder with a protective GAG layer naturally, without harsh chemicals or side effects.
Because aloe vera is antibacterial, antifungal, antibiotic, analgesic, anesthetic, antiseptic, 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 the IC/PBS sufferer.
Symptoms associated with IC/PBS are often relieved with varied approaches including the supplements and skincare found in our IC Starter Set, Bladder Protect Allergy Set and Ultimate IC Kit
