Interstitial Cystitis

The Gillespie Approach may be the missing piece for women’s healthcare. 

A thirty-four-year-old woman presented with a list of conditions: rheumatoid arthritis, interstitial cystitis, UTIs, yeast infections, headaches, neck pain, back pain, fatigue, brain fog, and anxiety.

She had a history of 4 or 5 concussions, cheerleading and snowboarding accidents, and a difficult birth. She presented with a zero-second brain cycle and a pelvic fascial twist, creating tightness into her head

During the first four visits her craniosacral fascial system released well, and many of her conditions responded beautifully. Her brain cycle opened to an amazing 300 seconds.  

On the fifth visit, her bladder, urethral area, and pelvic floor started to open up. Since she reported some improvement the following visit, fascial tightness may possibly be the root cause of her UTIs, yeast infections, and interstitial cystitis.

In defending this hypothesis, the fascial web connects every cell of the body and releases in its own space and time. Starting with their own birth injuries after conception, many women have a lifetime of traumas.

Over time, these cumulative fascial restrictions can compromise function, which can predispose these women to pelvic diseases. After the medical model unsuccessfully tries to find the cause of these problems, they will resort to managing the conditions.

The Gillespie Approach attempts to discover the root cause of a problem. Realizing the body knows best how to heal itself, providers listen to the patient’s fascial web and allow it to release its layers in its own space and time over a series of visits. The body heals more completely, resulting in better functioning tissues.

Our goal is to educate the world that this restrictive process can start and be best mitigated at birth. Gillespie Approach Training is a must for all newborn providers.
