Ultraviolet blood irradiation (simply called UBI)
Is a cure that time has indeed forgotten. UBI was extensively used in the 1940s and 1950s to treat medical conditions including pneumonia, tuberculosis, and even cancer. The advent of antibiotics leads to a decline in the use of UBI as an effective treatment option. Now, with the increasing incidence of antibiotic-resistant infections and a desire for more natural therapies, UBI is enjoying a type of rebirth.
The UBI procedure involves inserting a small catheter (similar to giving blood) into a vein in the forearm. A small amount of blood is removed with sterile technique; approximately 200 cc or 6 ounces. The blood passes through a flat quartz cuvette, is irradiated with ultraviolet light in a closed, airtight, sterile circuit, and returned to the bloodstream. The entire procedure takes about one hour.
It is believed that exposure to ultraviolet light boosts immune function and continues to provide benefits even after the treatments are completed. Ultraviolet blood irradiation has a cumulative effect. Initial treatments are usually followed by maintenance treatments. Indeed UBI has been proven to be a safe and effective medical treatment.
