Supplementary Lyme Disease & Tick-Borne Illness Therapies Offered at the Burick Center

At The Burick Center, we understand the unique challenges faced by those battling Lyme disease and tick-borne illnesses and offer advanced integrative therapeutic protocols that incorporate traditional medical and functional therapies. This blog will share the innovative therapies available at The Burick Center, combining traditional medical protocols with adjunct complementary therapies like IV Ozone Therapy, EBOO (Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation), Prolozone Injections, and Ultraviolet Light Blood Therapy.

Understanding Lyme Disease and Other Tick-Borne Illnesses

Lyme disease, primarily caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi, is transmitted through the bite of infected black-legged ticks. This condition is part of a group of infections known as tick-borne illnesses, which can include other diseases such as babesiosis, anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever . Lyme disease is characterized by symptoms like fever, headache, fatigue, and a distinctive skin rash known as erythema migrans. Due to its varied symptoms, which can resemble those of many other health issues, Lyme disease can be challenging to diagnose. Without appropriate treatment, the infection may spread to the joints, heart, and nervous system, potentially leading to severe and complex health problems. Like Lyme disease, other tick-borne diseases also pose significant risks and can potentially benefit from supplemental therapies.

The Role of IV Ozone Therapy for Lyme Disease 

At The Burick Center, IV Ozone Therapy can help improve oxygenation and circulation, boost the immune system, and enhance the body’s detoxification processes.  A novel therapeutic approach that provides the potential benefits of enhancing immune function and symptom relief. IV Ozone Therapy underlines the significance of a comprehensive treatment strategy for patients living with tick-borne illnesses.

Complementary Therapies at The Burick Center

While ozone therapy is potent as a singular therapy, combining it with other therapies may enhance its effectiveness further, while potentially providing symptomatic relief.

1. EBOO (Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation)

EBOO is a highly advanced treatment that involves the placement of two catheters. As we draw the patient’s blood it passes through a special filter which removes toxins, viruses, heavy metals, and fatty lipids from the blood. The filtered “cleaned” blood is continually nourished with a liter of oxygen as it is reinfused via a second catheter back into the patient. EBOO offers the added benefit of ozonation which can further enhance the therapeutic effects of the treatment.

The Burick Center has adopted EBOO due to its potential in relieving a myriad of symptoms, from chronic infections to autoimmune disorders. EBOO aims to bolster the body’s innate ability to heal, repair, and rejuvenate by providing a cleaner, more oxygen-rich blood supply to the tissues and vascular system.

2. Prolozone Injections

Prolozone injections are a combination of ozone and nutrient-dense solutions that can stimulate the healing of tendons, joints and ligaments. Prolozone injections are a highly precise, non-surgical, ligament and connective tissue reconstructive therapy.

The Burick Center uses a proprietary formulation mixed with ozone gas and is administered by a Burick Center physician who is certified and specialized in advanced injection techniques by the world renowned Dr. Frank Shallenberger.

3. Ultraviolet Light Blood Therapy 

Ultraviolet Light Blood Therapy is a procedure where blood is exposed to ultraviolet light, which is known to enhance the body’s immune response and deactivate pathogens. This therapy can be effective in helping to manage the microbial load associated with tick-borne illnesses, thereby potentially reducing the burden on the immune system while relieving symptoms. Through this process, Ultraviolet Light Blood Therapy can potentially improve patient outcomes by supporting a more robust immune function and facilitating relief.
