About Dr Bill

Dr Bill Dean began practicing urology in 1979 and retired from this practice in 2011 and completed an Ayurvedic medicine fellowship at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2014

He has chosen the use of internet consulting to reach out to the many who are interested in exploring an effective systematic approach to IC that is different to what is presently offered by traditional urology practices  This can lead to helping people implement the practical applications of this knowledge either with one on one interaction or with support groups  New information that improves health requires changes in habits and support groups may be helpful in changing lifestyle patterns of behavior

Due to his training Dr Bill is uniquely positioned to serve as a guide to compare and contrast the matter and energy science healing disciplines.  “When the current allopathic healing approach doesn’t have an answer Ayurveda can certainly shed light and deal with difficult clinical problems  This is because of how the 2 healing models differ in seeing how physiologic disease occurs”

Early in his urology career as a resident he researched a condition called chronic urethritis in women   Now in retrospect this was the beginning of his study of IC

Dr Bill became interested in the alternative medical discipline of Ayurveda through the Chopra organization in 1995  This introduction showed him how contemporary physics supported the fundamentals principles of Ayurveda as biologic energy medicine

In 2000 having his own medical problems he sought help at the Ayurvedic Institute and over the years has watched his health gradually but dramatically improve   He realized that going to work, taking nourishment, and communicating in relationships did not translate into health   He looks back and muses, “Until we begin taking an inventory we do not realize how sick we are”   As he began doing this healing slowly over the years problems such as chronic edema from varicose veins cleared, longstanding bowel issues gradually resolved with resultant improved bone density, clearance of longstanding skin lesions, and an improved healthy understanding of relationships   He saw that real healing took time and through the experience realized tools and techniques that could be used to reverse the disease process   Dr Bill began seeing healing in a more complete way

This improvement in his health brought enthusiasm to use some simple therapies in his urology practice for IC since there were no consistently good results with standard therapies in urology  He slowly began to realize that the medical matter science healing tradition that he was practicing was a disease detection and treatment program   Yes, it could provide semi-emergent treatments for concerning conditions such as appendicitis and cancer but there was no means to treat chronic disease and certainly no system of prevention using the present system of healing

In contrast he found that the science of Ayurveda used a different model of healing, not founded on molecular expressions of disease but on physiologic energetic imbalances in the body

In 2004 he wrote a paper on the results of a study showing the improvement of men, women, and children using Ayurvedic nutrition and aloe  vera gel    The results are reported at   In 6 weeks 91% of the patients had a 50% reduction in symptoms   This was indeed exciting and energized him to continue expanding on this approach to healing   He presented this paper at the Northwest Urological Society annual meeting in Vancouver BC Canada in 2005 and began his first website  He submitted the paper for publication in a mainstream urology journal  The paper was going to print after going through an editorial review when it was mysteriously pulled without explanation

With continued success using Ayurvedic principles in  the office he began actively blogging at which contrasted the matter science or molecular approach to healing which he was practicing to that of the Ayurvedic or energy science approach   The blog was specifically to show the differences in the two approaches that he practiced  In the ensuing years of practice he continued to help his patient’s pain with what he now calls an energy science of healing   This led to the 2010 publication of Foods Heal: Why Certain Foods Help YOU Feel Your Best which uses the nutritional model to show the differences between the current matter science medical discipline and the Ayurvedic or what he terms the energy science medical discipline

Says Dr Bill “Chronic diseases are not adequately managed since in the matter science medical model the origins of disease are not well understood   The energy science medical model has room for how diseases in the body begin   This is the key to helping with these debilitating conditions that we have today”

So he wants to show people who come to him how this energy science of Ayurveda can heal IC   “Complete resolution of IC seems like a tall order” he says, “but with my past experience and what I have learned during my fellowship that it is definitely possible for patients  to resolve IC if they want to take on the challenge”  In 2013 he completed IC Bladder Pain Syndrome:  The Alternative Medical Treatment for Interstitial Cystitis which describes the energy science and how it can be specifically applied to IC

Dr Bill is married and has 3 children and 5 grandchildren    He graduated from the University of Nebraska’s medical school in 1972 and has done fellowships in nephrology, pediatric urology, and completed the two year fellowship program in Ayurvedic medicine at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque New Mexico  He is teaching Ayurveda at the Bastyr Naturopathic Medical School in Seattle as well as supervising student practitioners who are seepatients in the clinic  He enjoys skiing, backpacking, and staying physically fit through daily exercise
