Why do so many “cleanse” programs suggest drinking hot lemon water in the morning? Warm beverages encourage movement in the digestive tract. Sour flavors, similar to bitter flavors, stimulate digestive juices to flow. A hot drink in the morning can help promote regular bowel movements. The bowels are one of the body’s main “detox” pathways. Clear, unsweetened fluids do not move the body from its “fasting” state to its “fed” state.

Since the appearance of an article about our success in treating a case of interstitial cystitis in Megan’s Blog, we have received many new patients and even international calls regarding our treatment of this miserable condition.

This is a recipe for simple healing soup. I recommend this recipe for people who are trying to heal and do not know what to eat. This simple diet is nourishing and will provide significant nutrition while being easy to digest. Simple healing soup will help reduce or eliminate the “toxemia” which occurs for digestive disturbances and which drives inflammation in the body. This soup can be varied in many ways, as the recipe demonstrates. 2-4 quarts of pure water. Do not use filtered or bottled water if the filter is a carbon filter, as most carbon filters are made today from coconut husk charcoal and this will put elements into.
“Interstitial Cystitis” is defined as a “noninfectious bladder inflammation that causes pain, urinary frequency and urgency with incontinence.” (Merck Manual) It is like a bladder infection that never stops, and that has no good conventional treatment.
