How it works:

We help people who are suffering from interstitial cystitis by improving how the body systems work so symptoms go away and stay away.

Why is our method different?

  • We take a whole body treatment approach when dealing with interstitial cystitis. While it is important to restore bladder health, we now that there are multiple factors which contribute to chronic problems such as interstitial cystitis. By taking a whole systems approach, we can not only reduce bladder sensitivity and urinary frequency, we can improve digestive health, emotional health, and even circulation, all of which contribute to long term success in dealing with chronic urinary problems.
  • The conventional method of treatment focuses on using medications and over-the-counter drugs to suppress the symptoms of interstitial cystitis. Very often, these drugs come with a variety of long term side effects such as digestive bleeding, liver damage, or may even increase the risk of hospitalization. Some drugs even cause the hair to fall out. With out approach, we can not only improve symptoms but we can often make the body function better as a whole which means greater relief and better quality of life.

What is interstitial cystitis?

Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a chronic condition of the urinary bladder where the bladder wall becomes inflamed and irritated. IC is different from chronic urinary tract infections because there is usually no infection present.

 

What are the symptoms of interstitial cystitis?

The symptoms of IC may include: pressure or pain in the bladder, chronic pelvic pain, frequent urination (often occurring in small amounts), urinary urgency (and maybe the need to urinate up to every 10 minutes), pain with urination or during sexual intercourse, bladder spasms, excessive urination at night, or pain in the genitals.

 

How can Chinese medicine help people suffering from interstitial cystitis?

Chinese medicine has a rich history of treating chronic disease conditions all over the body, including issues of the bladder. The approach we take includes a variety of medicinals which remove inflammation, promote complete urination, and aid in restoring normal protective coating inside the bladder and urinary tract to prevent further irritation from occurring.

Additionally, there are a variety of medicinals we use to relieve pain and help in dealing with scar tissue associated with interstitial cystitis. One of the great benefits of this treatment approach is that the pain-relieving medicinals are not addictive like those found in modern medicine. Further, this approach has a tendency to alleviate depression and anxiety which further contributes to proper recovery.

 

What is the cause of interstitial cystitis?

While the precise cause of interstitial cystitis is not presently known, there are a variety of factors that may contribute to this condition. For instance, IC sufferers may have a defect in the epithelium (protective lining) of the bladder. This defect can allow some substances in the bladder to cause irritation which can lead to inflammation, pain, and an urgency to empty the bladder frequently. Some sources also suggest that IC may be related to autoimmunity, previous infections, allergies, and may be hereditary.

 

What are the risk factors associated with interstitial cystitis?

Risk factors for IC include: gender (IC is much more common in women than it is in men), age (usually diagnosed over the age of 30), other chronic pain disorders such as fibromyalgia, IBS, autoimmune disease, anxiety, depression, or other issues causing central sensitization.
