This review is from: You Don't Have to Live with Cystitis (Paperback)
If you have ever suffered from any type of bladder problems or pain, you won't want to miss this opportuntity to learn more about how to overcome some of the symptoms of the dreaded disease of Interstitial Cystitis. I was diagnosed with this condition in 1988 after four very long years of suffering and going from doctor to doctor. Then I met Larrian Gillespie and found that my symptoms weren't in my head as many of the other doctors had told me, but that indeed IC was my problem. After reading this wonderful book, I was able to put into practice many of the recommendations and lifestyle changes that she suggested. The diet hints were especially helpful, as many of my symptoms worsened when eating the wrong foods. Living with this condition is not easy, but with understanding from a kind and caring physician, making the required changes in your diet and lifestyle, it is a condition that you can live with. As a registered nurse, I appreciated the medical reasoning presented in this book, but even someone with no medical background will enjoy the wit and humor that Larrian has brought to this subject. I've learned to live with my condition and you can too. Don't miss this opportunity to help yourself to better health and less pain as a result of this sometimes debilitating disease. Thank you, Larrian so much for caring for the needs of so many, many suffers from this condition.
