Re: Intertitial Cystitis....
Rooibos is also known as red bush tea or African red tea; it comes from a plant that doesn't contain caffeine. Some people have problems with it, but many IC patients can take it just fine.
What you can eat and what you can't will vary from person to person. Most people have problems with chocolate, but I never did (thank goodness!) Meanwhile, many people can take small amounts of tofu, but it flares my IC like there's no tomorrow. It's kind of a trial and error basis that takes a long time to refine...I'm still learning things now and then, haha. Sauerkraut doesn't bother me, but I'm not as diet sensitive now, and didn't eat it when I was...so...I guess try it and see how it goes?
