Giving Back and Advocating for Change
Desert Harvest started in 1993 to help a family member with her chronic bladder pain condition. Our mission has been to educate about the scientifically studied benefits of Super-Strength Aloe Vera to help relieve the symptoms associated with Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome.
We work with organizations and healthcare professionals to help educate and advocate for all those with IC/PBS worldwide. We offer our Compassionate Assistance Program (CAP) for qualified individuals to receive free or discounted Super-Strength Aloe Vera Capsules and Reléveum®.
In addition, Desert Harvest works with the following non-profit organizations who align with our mission. Proceeds from your purchase of Desert Harvest products helps support the important work of these organizations.
Desert Harvest has partnered with the Interstitial Cystitis Association (ICA) for the past 25 years. The Interstitial Cystitis Association (ICA) advocates for interstitial cystitis (IC) research dedicated to the discovery of a cure and better treatments, raises awareness, and serves as a central hub for healthcare providers, researchers and millions of patients who suffer with constant urinary urgency and frequency and extreme bladder pain called IC. The ICA was established in 1984 to put a face on all those affected by IC and remains today as the only non-profit health association solely dedicated to improving the quality of healthcare and lives of people living with IC. To fulfill its mission, the ICA pursues three core functions: advocacy, research, and education. http://www.ichelp.org
