Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) is a procedure that exposes the blood to 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.This means the fragments of the killed infecting agents create a safe, autogenous vaccination-like response. This further activates and directs your immune system to the specific infections your body is attempting to overcome. The net result is the induction of a secondary kill of these infecting agents throughout the entire body. Treating only 35 cc of blood with UBI induces a beneficial systemic response.
Other reported benefits include:
- Improved circulation
- Oxygenation of tissues
- Balancing effect (homeostasis)
- Reduction of tissue pain
- Increased immune and pain tolerance of the body toward radiation or chemotherapy
- Cardiovascular protection through increased metabolism of cholesterol, uric acid, and glucose
- Anti-inflammatory effects
- Powerful anti-infection properties
- Stimulation for production of red blood cells
- Improvement in the flow and properties of the blood
The amount of treatment needed is determined by variables such as the state of health of the patient’s immune system, length of time the patient has 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, etc.) immune modulating therapy, as noted in published studies listed on the website: www.drsubi.com. For more information please schedule an appointment with one of our Riordan Clinic doctors.
While past research has demonstrated many positive benefits, the Food and Drug Administration has yet to approve these diagnoses and more research is still needed before UBI will be accepted within the usual standards of care.
