In 1994, Qingyao Shi, Lic. OM & Acu., our medical director, began clinical research with one of the most nationally renowned interstitial cystitis (IC) experts, Dr. Kristine Whitmore, the chairman of Urology, Graduate Hospital, Philadelphia. From this partnership, the paper “The Chinese Medicine approach: Herbal Treatment for Interstitial Cystitis” was published.

Since then, there have been many more years of clinical research, and each year, we receive more and more requests for treatment IC patients all over the country. Because of this, we set up an interstitial cystitis intensive treatment program which combines acupuncture, allergy elimination treatment, and Chinese herbal medicine to target the patient’s immune system.
