Laser Pain Relief

Low level laser therapy (LLLT) helps to improve tissue repair, reduce pain and inflammation wherever the beam is applied on the body. In over 70 countries worldwide, LLLT has proven effectiveness equal to or better than traditional pharmaceutical painkillers, with faster and longer lasting effects.

Some of the clinical applications for laser therapy in Tyler, Texas include:

The benefits of laser therapy are supported by more than 400 clinical trials and over 4,000 laboratory studies proving its effectiveness. The therapy has shown to be safer and more effective than pharmaceutical anti-inflammatories for musculoskeletal conditions, improving healing, and reducing muscle fatigue. In fact, low level laser therapy is known to be an alternative to typical NSAIDs and can be considered a suitable replacement for those medications.

Instead of slowing the healing process for the sake of pain relief, laser therapy actually improves the healing process while reducing inflammation and pain. If laser therapy in Tyler, Texas sounds right to you, contact Brown Integrative today.

Ozone in Medical Practice

Ozone has been heavily studied and utilized in medical therapy for nearly a century. In fact, it was used during WWI to treat infected wounds. This led to the discovery that ozone can reduce inflammation and have profound hemodynamic effects on blood flow.

The main cause of aging and the diseases of aging is decreased oxygen utilization; ozone properly applied can correct this. It does this by increasing antioxidant buffering enzymes. The result is increased oxygen utilization and ATP production along with decreased free radical formation thereby allowing the body to heal itself.

The beauty of ozone therapy is that it is non-specific. It works with the body’s complex systems to affect many biochemical and physiologic processes. The following is only a partial list of diseases that may benefit from medically directed ozone:

Medical ozone is administered in several ways in our clinic. Major autohemotherapy is where blood is removed combined with ozone and re-infused. We commonly combine this procedure with Biophotonic (ultra violet) light therapy. It can also be safely insufflated into the rectal and vaginal cavities as well as the nose and ears. These procedures must be done under the direction of a physician properly trained in medical ozone.

We also offer limb bagging where an affected limb with a poorly healing or infected wound is saturated with ozone for about 20-30 minutes. We have seen dramatic results with this technique.

IV Intravenous Nutrition

There are a variety of different Intravenous IV Nutritional solutions that are provided dependent upon each individual’s specific health condition. IV Nutrients is the fastest way to replenish chronically depleted nutrient reserves. Vitamin C is one of the best antiviral agents available. It can neutralize and eliminate a wide range of toxins and is an antioxidant which helps protect from free radicals which cause oxidative stress. It has antihistamine effect which is useful in fighting allergies and the National Institute of Health has published evidence demonstrating Vitamin C’s anti-cancer properties. In his book, Primal Panacea, Dr. Thomas Levy, MD, JD writes about the benefits of high dose Vitamin C given intravenously for treatment of the following conditions: osteoporosis, arthritis, cancer herpes, viral infections and cardiovascular conditions.

An unappreciated fact is that our food is 40-60% less nutritious than 100 years ago. Micronutrient deficiencies include Potassium down 90%, Vitamin E down 80%, Calcium down 70%, Vitamins A, C and magnesium down 50% and Vitamin D down 50%. It should also be noted that food and supplements may yield a 5-10% absorption rate whereas IV nutrients can be as high as 60-90%. This can be especially important if one is suffering from Leaky Gut or other GI tract diseases. We offer high dose Vitamin C Infusions and Myers Cocktail.

Myers Cocktail

Probably the most popular IV Nutrition is the Myer’s Cocktail, named after Dr. John Myers, M.D. who used intravenous injections to treat his patients for a variety of health conditions. The Myer’s Cocktail IV is a mixture of B Vitamins, Vitamin C and minerals. Dr. Gaby describes many acute and chronic health conditions that benefit from intravenous nutrition: fatigue, depression, mental clarity, asthma, migraines, infections, fibromyalgia, muscle spasm, chronic sinusitis, upper respiratory infections, seasonal allergic rhinitis, cardiovascular disease, and many other conditions. He writes about the benefits of The Myers Cocktail and describes the following benefits: helpful with both acute and chronic problems, bypasses ineffective absorption in the gastrointestinal tract, enhances the healing process, promotes greater health, promotes greater ability to absorb nutrients, and promotes the use of nutrients orally.

Microcurrent Neurofeedback

IASIS Microcurrent Neurofeedback is a revolutionary and drug-free scientifically proven medical technology that has had tremendous success in alleviating a wide range of issues associated with disorders in patients of all ages.

By using carefully calibrated electrical signals (known as microcurrent), IASIS neurofeedback communicates with the brain to nudge the central nervous system back into balance. Unlike medications, Microcurrent Neurofeedback has the potential to produce long lasting modifications to the abnormally functioning brain in order to guide it toward optimal health and performance.

Microcurrent Neurofeedback has shown many benefits for people suffering from disorders and illnesses like:

Unlike traditional Neurofeedback, Microcurrent Neurofeedback creates near-immediate results in only a few sessions, producing a measurable change in the brainwaves without any conscious effort from the patient. This leads to a changed brainwave state that more than 85 percent of clients say has led to a positive, enduring, and sustainable outcome. Because Microcurrent Neurofeedback has shown such effectiveness in treating mental disorders, Brown Integrative in Tyler, Texas proudly offers the procedure to our patients.

Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI)

Our practice employs this therapy daily usually combined with ozone. This is not a new form of treatment. Harvard professor Dr. Michael Hamblin has published over 350 peer-reviewed articles in the past 25 years. In these publications, he discusses current methods used to treat infections, as an immune modality therapy and as a method for normalizing blood parameters.

Physicians have successfully treated serious infections dating back to the 1920’s. In 1942, Dr. George Miley, Clinical Professor of Medicine reported success with 103 consecutive cases of acute pyogenic infections. Results were 100% cure of early infection, 46 out of 47 for moderately advanced and 17 out of 36 of those who were near death. In the 1950’s, the age of antibiotics and vaccines began and UBI all but vanished from medical use. Currently there are only about 300 practitioners in the United States, 3000 in Europe and thousands throughout the world. Over one million UBI treatments have been successfully provided with minimal side effects and often dramatic results.

Like ozone therapy, UBI is non-specific. It works with the body’s immune and circulatory systems to help them function properly. There are nearly 30 documented changes in blood parameters, clotting changes, metabolic and hemodynamic changes, and improvement in immune defenses. Treatments have been effective for over 60 different diseases including viral infection, bacterial infection and autoimmune diseases. These can be reviewed in a booklet supplied in our office by Tom Lowe. “Today’s Medicine and the Power of Light”. A companion booklet also available is “An Introduction to Medical Ozone” by Micah Lowe.

It is important to understand that UBI and ozone are commonly used together and have a powerful synergistic effect. Again, a physician skilled in both modalities knows when and how to combine them.

Prolozone Injections

Prolozone is an injection technique pioneered by Dr. Frank Shallenberger, MD. It involves injecting a mixture of Procaine, Vitamins, Minerals, Glucose, a very small amount of steroid (in some cases), Traumeel and ozone/oxygen mixture. The ingredients can be changed depending on the patient and the site being injected. The result is re-polarization of injured cell membranes, improved circulation, reduced inflammation and edema, improved mitochondrial function, and improved glucose and oxygen utilization. Stem cells and blast cells get what they need, circulation and membrane stability are re-established, pain is reduced, and the healing
process is rejuvenated.

These injections are beneficial for painful joints, ligaments, tendons, connective tissue trigger points, scars, chronic neck and back pain, and plantar fasciitis. About 75% of chronic pain sufferers who undergo these procedures become permanently pain free, according to Dr. Shallenberger.
