Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) is a procedure that exposes the blood to ultraviolet (UV) light to heighten the body’s immune response and to kill infections. With exposure to UV light, bacteria and viruses in your bloodstream absorb five times as much photonic energy as do your red and white blood cells, which is a toxic dose to these infections.
Fragments of the killed organisms actually create a safe vaccination-like response. This further activates and directs your immune system to attack the infections your body is attempting to overcome. The net result is both a first direct exposure treatment and a second immune activated treatment throughout the entire body. Treating with as little as 35 cc of blood with UBI induces a beneficial systemic response.
In 1903 Niels Finsen of Denmark received the Nobel Prize for Medicine for his use of an ultraviolet lamp to successfully treat the disfiguring lesions caused by tuberculosis of the skin. Before long, UV was used widely in the medical world for the treatment of a variety of ailments.
The amount of treatment needed now is determined by the health of your immune system, length of time you have been ill and the severity of the disease being treated. UBI can be used clinically as both a SPECIFIC (i.e. psoriasis, lymph cancer) and NON-SPECIFIC (chronic infections, chronic fatigue, auto-immune diseases, anti-aging, etc.) immune modulating therapy, as noted in published studies.
