We have treated many cases of IC successfully at the Health and Vitality Center. Patients are placed on an allergy elimination diet. Caffeine, alcohol, gluten, soy, corn, dairy products, food additives, citrus fruits, and other specific allergens have been eliminated successfully. Heavy metal detox and IV chelation has also played a major role in treatment of IC. We have had mixed reviews on Myers’ and IV Vitality drips. Some patients have been able to tolerate Vitamin C and B Vitamins and some have experienced more irritability in their bladder.
Gut function is also optimized through a gut permeability test and a complete diagnostic stool analysis. Proper nutrients and probiotics are prescribed to heal the intestinal lining and enhance the gut flora.

"Dr. Lalezar, just a note to thank you for the chelation treatments, which have made a major difference in my health! All of your services are really excellent but the chelation in particular is fantastic."
“Ever since I have been seeing Dr. Lalezar, my overall health has improved 100%. Dr. Lalezar's techniques and methods have helped me lose over 60lbs and maintain the weight loss. I have not felt this healthy and young in years.”
“Dr. Lalezar has changed my life. Before I became her patient, I consulted with several doctors, but to no avail. After being treated by Dr. Lalezar, all of that changed.”
“She literally has changed my life both psychologically and physically. Her advice along with her treatments works so well that I have a totally different life now.”
“Five years ago, I couldn't even walk and now I am dancing! YES - GO TO DR. LALEZAR! She is the best physician in Los Angeles (and maybe the world)!”
“Dr. Lalezar is the best! She helped me recover from Hashimoto's thyroiditis and I am feeling the best I have in 14 years. I cannot recommend her enough!”
“I went to Dr. Lalezar frustrated that after having seen 4 specialists. No one could figure out what was wrong with my thyroid. Well, she did in the first 10 minutes I met her. I highly recommend Dr Lalezar.”
“I have my Dr. Lalezar to thank for my life and my health. I spent probably over $100,000 over the years looking for answers only to be told it was all in my head. I am so grateful. If I hadn't found her, I can't imagine where I'd be.”
“I feel better than I have felt in years thanks to Dr. Lalezar. I had been to other doctors ... She has prescribed balancing hormones and various minerals and micronutrients to get me feeling better than ever. Those, along with chelation IVs have made incredible transformations in my health.”
“My only regret is not finding her earlier, before the ten years of needless drugs and dealing with pain for no reason. If you have a health issue, trust Dr. Lalezar. I'm really glad I did.”
