Hello, I love drinking herbal teas. However I also have bladder irritation and frequency issue. I find that so many herbal teas are diuretic and i dont find that helps anything. I just wondered what teas people find to be non diruetic but that also may help the bladder.
I have heard of marshmallow tea but tead that is diuretic - has anyone tried cornsilk tea?any other reccomendations? I really like Rooibosh and honeybosh tea but they are really diurectic for me.

thank you

Hi MerryC

Deborah Grant, the herbalist I use at the Hale Clinic in London, has a special herbal tea for IC. It is very soothing and I drink it four times a day.

You can get in contact with her about it through her website and she can send it out to you.

Best regards

Rachel

merryc, liquorice tea is not diuretic but to be avoided for people with high blood pressure. Also tastes lovely!

I drink cornsilk tea sometimes, and find that OK - in fact it's about the only herbal tea I've found that I can tolerate.

Hi merryc,

Nettle tea is soothing to the bladder. It is also healing to the kidneys.Most teas contain tannins, which are astringent and can irritate a bladder that has issues. That can be overcome by adding a little milk. the colloidal protein in milk will bind with the tannins and eliminate thatt problem.
