The Healing Power of Medical Ozone Treatments: Unveiling The Best at the Burick Center

In the realm of progressive medical treatments, Ozone Therapy stands out for its remarkable healing properties. A leader in this therapeutic domain is Dr. Shallenberger, often dubbed the “Godfather of Ozone” in North America. With over 30 years of clinical practice offering Ozone Therapy, he’s revolutionized its application and broadened its horizons. But what does this have to do with the Burick Center? The connection is deep and significant—Theresa Burick, D.O, F.A.C.P and Mike Siciliano, M.D, D.C. are direct proteges of Dr. Shallenberger. This mentorship lineage places the Burick Center in an exceptional position, making it a premier destination for Ozone Therapy.

Training under a legend such as Dr. Shallenberger equipped Dr. Burick with unmatched expertise in Ozone Therapy. The Burick Center for Health & Wellness is committed to patient-centric care, integrating traditional and innovative treatments to optimize your health. Ozone Therapy is one of the cornerstones making the center synonymous with excellence. The Burick Center specializes in advanced Ozone protocols and therapies to include IV Ozone Therapy, Prolozone Therapy, and EBOO Therapy. Dr. Theresa Burick is triple board-certified through the American Board of Internal Medicine, American Academy of Ozone Therapy and the American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine.

Dr. Mike Siciliano: A Synthesis of Tradition and Innovation

Dr. Siciliano’s educational journey under Dr. Shallenberger’s guidance is noteworthy. Blending traditional medical practices with state-of-the-art techniques, Dr. Siciliano bridges the gap between time-tested treatments and modern advancements. His background in primary care, chiropractic care, integrative, and functional medicine, honed at renowned institutions like the Cleveland Clinic, converges seamlessly with the principles of Ozone Therapy. Dr. Siciliano is renowned for his Prolozone injection techiniques and their healing applications.

The Treatments: More Than Just Ozone

At the Burick Center, the scope of treatments goes beyond Ozone Therapy. The therapies include:

Medical IV Ozone: A Versatile Healer

How it Works: Medical IV Ozone therapy involves the administration of ozone gas (O3) directly into the bloodstream. Ozone is a powerful molecule consisting of three oxygen atoms, and it has remarkable therapeutic properties. When introduced into the bloodstream in a controlled and precise manner, ozone can stimulate various physiological responses. This method capitalizes on ozone’s unique properties to stimulate the immune system, enhance cellular function, and improve oxygen delivery.

Conditions Treated: Medical IV Ozone is known for its versatile applications in treating a wide range of health conditions, including:

  • Lyme Disease: Ozone therapy can help combat Lyme disease by directly targeting and neutralizing tick born bacterias related to Lyme Disease and responsible for the infection. It also enhances the immune system’s ability to fight off the disease.
  • Autoimmune Disorders: Ozone therapy may alleviate symptoms associated with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and multiple sclerosis by modulating the immune response and reducing inflammation.
  • Cancer: While ozone therapy is not a standalone cancer treatment, it can be used as a complementary therapy to support cancer patients. It may help enhance overall vitality and improve the patient’s response to conventional treatments.
  • Detoxification: Ozone therapy aids in detoxification by breaking down toxins and promoting their elimination from the body. This is especially beneficial for individuals dealing with heavy metal toxicity and environmental toxin exposure.
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Ozone therapy can boost energy levels and combat the fatigue often associated with chronic fatigue syndrome.
  • Viral Infections: Ozone therapy has shown promise in managing viral infections, including chronic viral hepatitis, HPV and herpes infections.

EBOO (Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation): Regeneration at Cellular Level

How it Works: EBOO is a specialized treatment that involves removing a portion of the patient’s blood, ozonating it outside the body, and then reintroducing the ozonated blood back into the circulation. This process supercharges the blood with oxygen and ozone. It essentially acts as a blood cleanser, ensuring every red blood cell interacts with the therapeutic benefits of ozone.

Conditions Treated: EBOO has demonstrated efficacy in various conditions, including:

  • Heavy Metal Poisoning: EBOO can help remove heavy metals from the body, such as lead, mercury, and cadmium, which can lead to serious health issues if left untreated.
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: The increased oxygenation and improved circulation provided by EBOO can alleviate symptoms of chronic fatigue, including persistent tiredness and muscle weakness.
  • Tetanus: EBOO can support the treatment of tetanus, a bacterial infection that affects the nervous system, by promoting oxygenation and improving the body’s immune response.
  • Nephritis: This therapy may benefit individuals with nephritis, an inflammation of the kidneys, by improving blood flow and reducing inflammation.
  • Bursitis: EBOO can help manage bursitis, an inflammatory condition affecting the fluid-filled sacs (bursae) that cushion joints, by reducing inflammation and promoting healing.
  • Ischemia and Cardiovascular Disease: Improved blood oxygenation and circulation are beneficial for individuals with ischemic conditions and cardiovascular disease, helping to reduce the risk of complications.
  • Joint and Disc Regeneration: EBOO’s ability to release growth factors makes it a valuable treatment for regenerating damaged joints and deteriorated discs.

Prolozone Injections: The Natural Pain Reliever

How it Works: Prolozone Injections are a homeopathic-oxygen injection technique developed by Dr. Frank Shallenberger. It is a minimally invasive technique that derives its name from the combination of ‘proli’ which means to regenerate or rebuild and the word ‘ozone.’ It involves injecting a mixture of ozone and nutrients directly into damaged or painful joints, tendons, or soft tissues. This injection-based treatment combines ozone, vitamins, and minerals to heal and provide pain relief in areas of the body with diminished circulation and oxygen.

Conditions Treated: Prolozone Injections have been successful in a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, including:

  • Joint and Muscle Pain: Prolozone can provide relief from chronic joint and muscle pain, often caused by conditions like osteoarthritis or repetitive strain injuries.
  • Disc Herniations: This therapy is effective in treating disc herniations by reducing inflammation and promoting the healing of damaged spinal discs.
  • Sports Injuries: Prolozone can accelerate the healing of sports injuries such as ligament sprains, muscle strains, and tendon injuries.
  • Back Pain: Individuals suffering from chronic back pain, whether due to degenerative conditions or injuries, can benefit from the regenerative effects of Prolozone Injections.
  • Arthritis: Prolozone has shown promise in alleviating the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis, improving joint function and mobility.
  • Foot Pain: Conditions like plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis respond well to Prolozone Injections, providing relief and promoting healing.

Ultraviolet Light Blood Therapy (UBT):

How it Works:

Ultraviolet Light Blood Therapy, often referred to as UBT, is a straightforward yet highly effective intravenous therapy. During the procedure, a small amount of the patient’s blood is gently withdrawn from their body and exposed to the therapeutic power of ultraviolet (UV) light. This UV light, emitted by a specialized machine, acts as a potent cell cleanser, targeting and neutralizing harmful bacteria present in the bloodstream.

Conditions Treated:

UBT has proven to be a versatile treatment option with a particular focus on pathogenic infections. Its efficacy is attributed to the following mechanisms:

  • Selective Destruction: Unhealthy cells within the bloodstream absorb significantly more photonic energy from the UV light than healthy cells, causing them to perish. This selective destruction of unhealthy cells is a hallmark of UBT.
  • Immune Activation: The elimination of unhealthy cells initiates a robust immune response within the body. This response activates the immune system to target and combat specific viral infections or bacteria that may be causing illness.

In our clinical experience, UBT has consistently demonstrated remarkable results, especially when employed in conjunction with Ozone Therapy. This combination of therapies enhances immune function and offers a multifaceted approach to promoting overall health and combatting infections.
