* Celebrate Hot Tea Month with IC Friendly Teas

There is nothing like the cold temperatures to get your mind thinking “hot drink”.  Most people who have interstitial cystitis (IC) cannot tolerate the go-to beverages for winter warmth like regular coffee and tea. These drinks cause pain and overactive urination in those with IC. So what’s a person to do to celebrate National Hot Tea Month

While regular coffee and tea are off limits, most IC sufferers can tolerate some herbal teas.  Some of the following might work just fine:

  • Chamomile
  • Peppermint
  • Rooibos (from an African bush)
  • Blueberry
  • Warm pear juice
  • Cinnamon (heat up cinnamon sticks in water)

All people with IC do not respond well to the above drinks, but these have been noted to be the least likely to cause a flare.  Just make sure they are all herbal with no regular tea leaf in the mix (this includes green tea). 

So with temperatures dropping this winter, grab your favorite mug and enjoy.  These IC friendly drinks might just be your “cup-o-tea”.
