Interstitial Cystitis

Also known as painful bladder syndrome, interstitial cystitis (IC) is a chronic inflammatory condition that causes frequent, urgent and painful urination. Although there is no cure for IC, it is possible to find long-lasting relief with a combination of targeted therapies and lifestyle changes.

Understanding interstitial cystitis

The bladder is a hollow organ that is responsible for holding urine. It expands until full, and then sends a signal through your pelvic nerves to inform the brain that it’s time to urinate. With interstitial cystitis, these signals do not work properly. Patients need to urinate more often and tend to release an abnormally small amount of urine each time.

IC can have a long-lasting impact on your quality of life and often results in emotional stress and intimacy problems. In addition, it tends to develop alongside other chronic conditions, including fibromyalgia, IBS, endometriosis and more.

The symptoms

The symptoms of interstitial cystitis aren’t necessarily consistent. They may flare-up and subside in response to certain triggers, such as exercise, sexual activity and menstruation.

The most common signs of this condition include:

  • Pelvic Pain
  • Pain while the bladder fills
  • A persistent urge to urinate
  • Pain during sex
  • Frequently urinating small amounts

Recovery from Fat Grafting

At Angel Longevity Medical Center, Dr. Anju Mathur will harness the power of her customized “Back to Wellness Programs” to help you achieve lasting relief from interstitial cystitis.

To begin, she will schedule an initial consultation to discuss your experience with IC. During that meeting, she will thoroughly investigate aspects of your life that could be contributing to your symptoms– including your environment, diet, stress levels, and sleep habits.

From there, she will collect detailed information about your symptoms and run a series of lab tests.

Armed with this information, Dr. Mathur will compose a comprehensive healing plan to deliver lasting relief and improve your quality of life. In many cases, this treatment approach will involve a blend of the following therapies:


Because IC is associated with tissue inflammation and overly stimulated nerves, acupuncture can offer relief. It can trigger a controlled response from your different bodily systems – including the immune, nervous, and hormonal systems – to restore the balance you need.

Diet changes

During your appointments at our office, Dr. Mathur will counsel you on food selections that are appropriate for interstitial cystitis. In many cases, she will recommend avoiding items that can cause inflammation, such as sugar, coffee, spicy foods and alcohol. Depending on your triggers, you may also need to cut out other foods that are known to cause problems for IC patients, such as tomatoes, potatoes, red meat and spinach.

IV therapy

Nutritional supplementation via IV therapy can be transformative for patients with IC. As part of your “Back to Wellness Program,” Dr. Mathur will customize a blend of nutrients that can relax the bladder, restore balance, and ease your symptoms.

Covid19 and Your Immune System – A special message from Our Founder, Dr. Anju Mathur

Update March, 22nd:

We remain open to provide crucial services to all our patients and we are welcoming new patients.

Our most important goal is to remain healthy and maintain or build a strong immune system. In an effort to do so, we researched and have found a special test to analyze the overall state of health of your immune system.

A healthy immune system is the only thing that will either keep you from getting Covid19 or if you do contract it, keep the symptoms as mild as possible and the recovery as quick as possible. Because of this, we want to provide the opportunity for you to come in and have the overall health of your immune system tested.

If you are interested in this new blood test to find out what the overall state of your immune system is like, you should contact us right away and make an appointment.

We have negotiated some very special pricing on this test and are including your test and report of findings consultation with Dr. Anju Mathur along with her recommendations to maintain your overall immune health for only $199.

Our doctor has also prepared a special message for you:

Update March, 16th:

In recent weeks we have all seen the news about the Coronavirus and even worse, we have seen blatantly threatening news reports, and our friends and family scared out of their wits.

I urge you not to panic. If you are not sure what to do, contact us and we will help you.

Coronavirus is real, but for healthy people it is not a death sentence. The mortality rate is only relatively high in immune compromised people or with other medical issues. Per Dr. SHIVA Ayyadurai, MIT PhD, “Viruses are NOT what kill & harm us (trillions of them in & around us) - rather the over-reaction of a weak & dysfunctional immune system caused by “underlying pre-existing conditions””… “CDCgov can bring CoronaVirus to its knees fast & stop deaths of seniors & immunocompromised by AT LEAST EQUAL emphasis- NOW - on specific foods & supplements to STRENGTHEN our Immune Systems.”

The best and right thing to do is to build up your immune system to be more resistant. In addition to high dose vitamin C, major autohemotherapy, and ultraviolet blood irradiation intravenous therapy, we are putting together our anti-viral supplement package for you. Call us for details.

Until then, we recommend you use very good hygiene practices:

  1. Wash your hands for 40 seconds with soap and hot water.
  2. Wear a mask if you are sick, coughing or sneezing, or have mucus. (Change mask every day).
  3. Wipe down your phone and doorknobs.
  4. Do not touch your face (eyes, nose, mouth).
  5. Use chemical-free anti-bacterial sprays and wipes (you can use essential oils, apple cider vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide)

Also, I want to share a wonderful anti-viral tea recipe:

Anti Viral TEA Recipe by Dr Mathur


  1. Fresh Grated Ginger-3 Tablespoons
  2. black whole kernels peppercorns- 20-30 pieces
  3. Cinnamon Stick- 1
  4. Black Cloves- 5-8.

Place all of the above ingredients in 3 cups of water and then boil for 20-30 minutes until the water turns black. Then strain it and drink it with some coconut or Almond milk and palm sugar or stevia.

Remember, these symptoms are treatable. You do not have to freak out. Be smart, keep your immune system healthy.

If you do contract the virus, let us know. Don’t panic, we are here for you.

Find facts instead of hysteria here.

John Hopkins reports 70,000 people have recovered worldwide.


Highest percentage of deaths are from immunocompromised patients and patients over 80 years old.
