Primitive man adored light. Ancient civilizations recognized its power. Light has wonderful associations with life, health and vitality. The ingredients of sunlight have long been known to have health-giving benefits. Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation sounds a little scientifically complex and frightening, but it is simple, painless and safe. UBI is essentially, the healing power of light. This month, we turn a spot-light on this amazing therapy:
Photoluminescence, as it is also called, is prescribed at the Center For Natural and Integrative Medicine, as a therapy for a number of conditions and illnesses.
There is a wonderful history behind UBI. “In the 1940s, a multitude of articles appeared in the American literature detailing a novel treatment for infection. This treatment had a cure rate of 98 to 100% in early and moderately advanced infections, and approximately 50% in terminally moribund patients. Healing was not limited to just bacterial infections, but also viral (acute polio), wounds, asthma, and arthritis.”
In spite of this success, in the latter part of the 20th century, this therapy gained the name “The Forgotten Cure,” because of the rise of chemical and artificial medicines in that time period. As we begin the 21st century, more and more first-class Health and Wellness Centers are rediscovering the value of this therapy for treating such conditions as:
Mononucleosis, MRSA infections, Multiple sclerosis, Osteomyelitis, Allergies – both inhaled and food. It also might be prescribed for Autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and Sjorgen’s Syndrome.
UBI has been effective for: Cancer – ( including breast, colon and prostate, ) Chronic candidiasis – (chronic yeast overgrowth,) and Chronic fatigue syndrome.
The treatment also might be prescribed for: Chronic Pain, Peripheral vascular disease, Shingles and any type of Toxicity.
The session proceeds in four steps:
1. In our quiet treatment room, our technician will remove 200 cc of blood.
2. This small amount of blood is passed through a quartz cuvette where it is exposed to ultraviolet light, at exactly the the same wave length produced by sunlight.
3. The blood is then returned to the blood stream.
4. Nature controls what happens next, and it is very exciting. The “irradiated” blood stimulates a far-reaching auto-immune effect on all of the blood, systemically.
To put it simply, the re-vitalized blood communicates with the entire blood system, charging up the body’s own natural immune system. Then the power of the patient’s own white blood cells become capable of inactivating toxins, destroying or at least inhibiting bacteria, virus, and fungi. So, if the illustration above is a specimen plate full of bacteria being exposed to ultraviolet light, the bacteria would be dying.
You will be happy to know that, as the patient, your cellular immunity is boosted, and your circulation is increased. Your blood flow and oxyenation are increased. You feel better, renewed. Discover more details at our special page.
It is important to note that your general health and diagnosis will mandate how many UBI sessions will be of benefit to you. We know every case is unique, and we pride ourselves on meticulous examination and consultation before prescribing this, or any other, therapy. UBI is gentle, and it might be combined easily with other treatments and nutritional guidance here at the Center of Natural and Integrative Medicine. Far from being a forgotten cure, this is a treatment whose time has come.
