Below you will find various relationships to, and potential clinical treatment approaches for interstitial cystitis.
It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine, treatment for "interstitial cystitis" is rarely focused on the symptoms exclusively. Alternatively, a practitioner is looking at the factors that led to the development of "interstitial cystitis" - i.e. the "cause(s)".
For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.
