People often fall into pot holes early in treatment, and sometimes even later in treatment doing things that are commonly known as healthy. But, what is healthy? While there are general things that are indeed healthy, those things may not be healthy for you right now. For example, using extra virgin olive oil is healthy-hands down. However, extra virgin olive oil in a person who is very symptomatic with IC will do nothing but escalate the pain levels. When this happens, this means inflammation is going up. That isn't healthy.
