Give your Blood a Little Sunshine – UBI
BY: DR. MELINA ROBERTS
We are excited to now be offering a therapy called Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI). This is a natural therapy that has been used in medicine for well over 70 years with significant results and little to no side effects.
This procedure involves taking out a small amount of blood from a patient, then infusing that blood back into the patient, but before we give the patient back their blood, we run the blood under ultraviolet lights. The bulbs emit UVA and UVC light.
The UVA gives more photonic energy and has an immune balancing effect. When the body is having a difficult time being able to decipher self from non-self , such as in an autoimmune disease, then the UVA helps that body to decrease the attack on itself. Thus this is helpful for all autoimmune conditions including allergies, rashes, Multiple sclerosis, Lupus, Asthma, Rheumatoid Arthritis etc. The UVA is also good at modulating the immune system, which is helpful for cancer and fibromyalgia. The photonic effect helps to increase circulation and oxygenation of the blood, hence being helpful for cardiovascular disease.
The UVC has a germicidal effect. This means that it is able to kill viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites. The infectious agents are killed by the light by tearing apart the DNA strand and causing cross-linking so that it can no longer replicate. These strands are sent into the body and act to boost the immune system against any other infections in the body. This is able to occur without causing any damage to the healthy cells. Hence the UVC light is good for treating acute and chronic infections.
Typically the UBI treatments for acute infections are 2 times per week for 2 weeks and for chronic diseases are done once a week for 4 weeks and then re-evaluated.
