This is a great article which speaks about the use of probiotics and the effects of them on the eyes. I have found this to be true for the last two decades (under the appropriate circumstances of course) and I also use them (in a specific manner) topically in the eye when there is infection with tremendously positive results. I thought this would be a great article to share with everyone: https://www.eyeworld.org/perspectives-probiotics Dr. M

I find most of our patients with IC have trouble with weight, but more often than not it is that they are not assimilating their nutrients properly and it is causing weight loss rather than weight gain. There are some patients however with the opposite problem. Working with the Microbiome in our experience is key to re-establishing health and that in turn effects everything including the metabolism.

There are so many perspectives on each condition of the body and how to approach it. I thought this was pretty interesting. If you think you have Lyme you may find this interesting as well. http://www.prohealth.com/lyme/library/showarticle.cfm?libid=29931

Did your IC start with recurrent UTIs? This is one way in which IC may start, although, certainly not the only way. It seems that some may be separating these conditions and it is my opinion that they are not at all separate, but in fact different versions of the same thing.

No matter your thoughts on vaccines-read this very very long article. It is extremely interesting and I think very relevant to those having chronic illness as many having chronic illness also struggle with infections in pregnancy. This may influence your choice of healthcare with your baby and could make a huge difference in his or her health! https://medium.com/@jbhandley/did-chinese-scientists-find-autisms-missin...

I was having a conversation with someone today that is newly pregnant and thought I should post. Low progesterone can be a big problem with IC and, as many of you know, we don't advocate it's use or the use of hormones in general except in certain very specific situations.
