Who We Are

ICAMA is a part of BOMAMED which was founded by Boaz Brizman, M.T.O.M., L.Ac., and Matia Brizman, M.T.O.M., Ph.D., L.Ac. in 1997 when they began treating and specializing in chronic inflammatory and immune conditions. ICAMA is dedicated to their work with treating Interstitial Cystitis specifically.

The system that we developed and have used in our own model published in 2006, which is a merging of Classical Chinese medicine and Western medicine and addresses the underlying causes within the gut and immune system.  We work by helping people create life-style changes and dietary changes and assist them in using herbal (ours and other brands combined) and dietary supplementation to return their microbiome to a healthy balance. Ultimately, this is key to wellness. We were writing about this in the early 2000’s, and this is now commonly agreed on in medicine today. 

Our intent is to continue to provide ongoing care for those we treat from around the world as well as be a source of information and help to those who need it.

Matia Brizman
M.T.O.M., L.Ac., Ph.D.

Board certified in Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture.

Matia Brizman is a doctor of classical Chinese medicine (Ph.D.) Her work is an original system comprised of her own integrative approach between classical Chinese and Western medicine.

This body of work is published in her Ph.D. dissertation, which may be found on Amazon.com. In this work, Dr. Brizman discusses her model for the development and treatment of IC. It is her own unique understanding of how chronic illness develops, but interestingly, she believes this model applies to most chronic health conditions. 

Together with her husband, they each bring their own unique interpretations of Chinese medicine to the modern day clinic and continue to deepen this incredibly valuable body of work. They both feel that this work is built upon the immense depth of Chinese medicine but has been expanded upon with their own understanding of modern health challenges and conditions.

Boaz Brizman
M.T.O.M., L.Ac.

Board certified in Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture.

Co-Founder of ICAMA. Partner and husband to Matia Brizman, Boaz brings the combination of his expertise in Chinese medicine and his unique vision to ICAMA.

After working in their clinic together for many years on their own individual areas of chronic illness, Boaz joined his wife in treating IC implementing the system she devleoped in her doctoral work. Over this last decade, his work has illustrated how these methods can be studied, learned and executed, as he has been incredibly successful in helping so many with IC gain back their health. Many of our successful stories are the result of his work. Boaz brought with him his own brilliant body of work with chronic illness. His work has been synonymous with the work of his wife and partner in that he addresses the body as a whole in the treatment of these kinds of conditions. Together, this husband and wife team continue to collaborate in making the ICAMA methods more and more effective with each passing year.  

Currently, they are working on documenting their body of work to pass on to others in hopes of helping people in a larger capacity.
