Are you struggling with...

urgency, frequency, or bladder pain? What about joint pain, muscle pain or weakness, insomnia, rapid heartbeat, recurrent rashes or hives, eczema, difficulty concentrating or focusing, fatigue, weight loss/gain, cold/heat intolerance, hair loss, gastrointestinal issues, such as abdominal discomfort, mood issues, seasonal allergies, bloating, diarrhea or constipation, migraines, hormone imbalance, pelvic pain, lower back pain, headaches, brain fog, low energy?


Are you facing the challenges of interstitial cystitis and feeling overwhelmed, lost, and confused? If you're on a quest to uncover the root causes of your condition and seek hope, you've come to the right place.

Our body's defense (the immune system) and inflammation are big players in health problems, including interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS). If you're dealing with IC, you might recognize symptoms linked to chronic inflammation – a sign that your body is out of balance. Long-lasting inflammation can mess with our body's harmony, impacting various tissues and organs.

The key to true and lasting solutions for reversing IC lies in getting to the root of it all. IC can be particularly challenging because its causes and symptoms vary from person to person. Unfortunately, many doctors may not fully grasp this variability, leaving those desperate for relief without adequate support.

The journey to wellness begins with uncovering your unique root causes and addressing them head-on, and we're here to assist you every step of the way. Whether through insightful books, one-on-one consulting, an online course, customizing your diet, or assembling a team of professionals, IC Wellness is dedicated to supporting you. We'll be by your side, providing guidance and support throughout your journey. There is hope, and together, we can work towards reclaiming your health and life.

How I Got My Life Back
My Journey with Interstitial Cystitis 

At 29, I was diagnosed with interstitial cystitis (IC). I endured debilitating pain for over a decade while trying to manage my symptoms, but my health continued deteriorating. Conventional medicine let me down, providing only symptom management that felt like a temporary fix and ultimately left me in a worsened condition. It wasn't until an entire decade later that I was introduced to functional medicine and decided to change my diet and lifestyle. As I witnessed my symptoms gradually improve, I became intrigued by the idea that I might have more control over my health than I had initially realized. This curiosity led me to delve into extensive research on the roles genetics, inflammation, immunity, proper supplementation, diet, pelvic floor dysfunction, infections, stress, and overall lifestyle play in an individual's well-being. After implementing these changes, I successfully put my IC into remission. 

I've found that a holistic approach to healing, meaning viewing and treating the body as a whole system, has been effective and life-changing in addressing interstitial cystitis. 

Join me on a powerful and transformative journey in my book 'How I Got My Life Back' as I share my inspiring triumph over interstitial cystitis (IC). This book offers invaluable insights and guidance, providing hope and practical solutions for those facing the challenges of IC/BPS
