Bev Laumann A Taste of the Good LIfe

The ICN is delighted to feature monthly columns by IC patient Beverly Laumann. Bev is the author of "A Taste of the Good Life: A Cookbook for an Interstitial Cystitis Diet," the only comprehensive book written for ICers who are concerned about nutrition and diet. It is a best seller throughout the world and in our own ICN shop.

Bev is also one of the most important IC activists, authors and contributors to the IC movement in the USA. She frequently collaborates with researchers around the country, participates as a guest speaker at various IC conferences, and helps to develop new diet related research for IC. We are truly blessed to have her involved in the IC cause.

Special Note: Bev appeared LIVE on the ICN for a special "Meet the Expert" presentation. You can read the transcript in the Meet the IC Expert Archives.
