Ultraviolet Light Therapy: If you knew of a proven, non-drug therapy that helped thousands, would you tell a friend?

Mar 28, 2016 01:36PM ● By Nyree Abdool D.O.

For over 100 years, the healing qualities of light have been studied by scientists, and the general consensus is that the electromagnetic spectrum of light generated by the sun has many significant, beneficial effects on the human body. From the newborn infant with jaundice to the adolescent with acne or the adult with balding, light therapies have been a central part of an effective treatment plan for a very long time. 
    Unfortunately, with the introduction of more recent medical practices, technologies and pharmaceuticals, we have diverged from some of the original, simple, non-invasive modalities that aid in healing disease and creating long-term health such as Photonic Therapy, also known as Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI).

Ultraviolet light therapy has…
80+ years of clinical history
Minimal side effects
An efficacy rate of 60-80 percent
A positive effect on over 60 diseases
Over 200 medical studies
Is cost effective

What is Ultraviolet Light?
Ultraviolet light comes from the sun and is invisible to the human eye. It falls in between the range of visible light and X-rays on the light spectrum. It consists of UVA, UVB and UVC light. UV radiation has enough energy to break chemical bonds and creates a generalized germicidal and anti-inflammatory effect, especially when applied intravenously into the human body.

How does UV Blood Irradiation (UVI) Work?
In the fewest words, UVI works by creating a “natural vaccine” in the body. Most of us are familiar with externally administered vaccines such as MMR, polio, hepatitis and DPT where a weakened or dead version of those disease pathogens is introduced into the bloodstream. When a vaccine is introduced, the body sends a message to its B cells to form antibodies against those foreign agents and creates immunity so that if there were a future exposure to those pathogens, there would already be a defense system in place for the body to combat the invaders.
    Similarly, with UVI, the UVC (254nm) light breaks down the virus or bacteria that is present in the blood. During a treatment, a small amount of blood is taken out of the body, circulated through a medical ultraviolet light device and then reintroduced into the body. The body then mounts an immune reaction to the byproducts of the dead viruses and bacteria and activates B cells to recognize these pathogens as foreign, acting like a natural, personalized vaccine (referred to as induced secondary immune reactivation). UV light can create additional changes in the blood such as an increase in red blood cells and hemoglobin which improves oxygenation and also causes an increase in acid buffering capabilities which create a more alkaline blood environment.

What does UVI Do?
Optimizes the body’s immune response, kills bacteria and viruses
Creates powerful anti-inflammatory effects
Improves circulation and oxygenation of tissues
Supports a balancing effect (homeostasis) in the body
Reduces tissue pain
Increases immune and pain tolerance to radiation or chemotherapy
Cardiovascular protection by improved management of cholesterol, uric acid and glucose

What does UVI Treat?
Viral illness – Flu, hepatitis, herpes, pneumonia, mononucleosis, shingles
Bacterial illness – Skin and wound infections, gangrene, fungus 
Chronic illness – Multiple sclerosis, colitis, Crohn’s disease 
Circulatory conditions – Varicose veins, peripheral vascular disease, diabetic ulcers
Autoimmune diseases – Fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, lupus 
Respiratory diseases – COPD, asthma, emphysema, sinusitis
Eye disease – When caused by poor circulation 
Geriatrics –With old-age phenomena, UVI produces well-being 
Radiation and Chemotherapy – Are better tolerated and side effects are greatly reduced

The basic treatment series is recommended to be taken two times per week for five weeks, then monthly thereafter as needed and/or for prevention. The procedure usually takes less than one hour and most people report improvements after two to three treatments.
    UVI is a simple, highly effective, minimally invasive treatment option for countless disease processes and an optimal choice for those individuals seeking natural health care alternatives. The Power of Light is undeniable! For more info, visit
