Interstitial cystitis is a condition of the bladder wall that causes symptoms of pelvic pain, urinary frequency and urgency.
It is often misdiagnosed as other urologic or gynecologic conditions, but does not resolve with the treatments for these conditions.
Interstitial cystitis is really “leaky bladder” – a condition that allows irritants to penetrate the bladder wall and cause symptoms. While the organ affected is the bladder in this case, we treat it similarly to other “functional” conditions such as asthma, eczema, and irritable bowel syndrome.
This work includes fortifying the lining of the bladder with appropriate remedies to create a proper barrier so that irritants cannot penetrate the tissue.
We also work with each patient to identify dietary and other triggers that may be exacerbating their condition. Overall, we develop a plan for long-term healing of the bladder mucosa, as well as an acute plan for treatment of symptoms involved in flare ups of this challenging diagnosis.

We want to assure our patients that the continuity of your care is our primary concern during this period of transition. Your practitioner will continue to be available to you in the same way, providing the same services, and accepting the same insurance plans. The only change will be where you drive to see her (and easier parking!). Concerning your access to supplements, you can continue to get them from your practitioner at her new location, or she may have set up an online dispensary to make reordering more convenient. Those details will be shared with you by your practitioner.
After we receive your appointment request, we will call you within 1 business day to confirm details and officially book your appointment.
