Ultraviolet Blood Therapy
Photo-oxidation therapy is also known as Photoluminescence or Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UVB). A photo-oxidation (UVB Therapy) treatment consists exposing a sample of the blood to an ultraviolet (UV Ultraviolet "C" Light) light briefly.
Ultraviolet light has been used as a disinfectant for many years; most contaminated objects can be cleansed rapidly of viruses and bacteria by exposure to this kind of light.
However, the most dramatic effect of ultraviolet irradiation is the stimulation of the immune system and various enzyme systems. Through a mechanism which probably involves increased production of lymphokines, the immune system is activated to "attack" either cancer cells or invading organisms.
We are now able to do this in a non invasive fashion making this an affordable and safe therapy available to all patients.
Called Sub-Lingual Photoluminescence we can expose the blood to these UV rays without the need to remove the blood from the patients body. The UVB is delivered under the tongue to the sub lingual veins where the blood is very superficial.
The effects are long lasting and there is an absence of harmful side effects. The simple treatments are easily combined with other medical procedures and are economical, dependable and gentle for the patient.
UVB Ultraviolet Therapy (Photo-oxidation therapy) is a biological healing modality utilizing ultraviolet irradiation of the blood (with UV Ultraviolet C light) to produce the following beneficial photochemical reactions:
Historically, photo-oxidation therapy was first administered to humans in 1928 in Germany when a woman dying of sepsis (a usually fatal bacterial infection of the blood) was cured in two days. Currently, when use and over-use of antibiotics has produced super-strains of bacteria resistant to more and more powerful (toxic) antibiotics, and new mutated strains of viruses are being identified every decade, photo-oxidation is needed more than ever. Medical research from American and German sources, provides dozens of references on photo-oxidation.
Indications for photo-oxidation: When a patient has reached a plateau, photo- oxidation can often improve these patients further. Indications include: Infections of all types- (bacterial, viral, fungal, protozoa) toxic conditions, injuries, wound healing, venous stasis ulcers, Raynaud's disease, migraine, acute flare ups of arthritic joints, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis pain, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, asthma, acne, herpes zoster, psoriasis, chronic intestinal inflammation, occlusion of arteries, (including stroke post care), thrombosis or increase in blood coagulability, thrombophlebitis, general detoxification.
The biological effects seen are increases in arterial and venous oxygenation, blood pH, lymphocytes, electrical charge on the red blood cell, of bacteriocidal capacity of the blood, hemoglobin, white blood cell count, lymphocytes, phagocytosis ability; Reduction of : cholesterol, creatinine levels, blood lactate, clot formation tendencies, blood viscosity, uric acid levels, fibrin levels, plasma viscosity, surface tension of the blood; Normalization or modulation of: immune status, glucose tolerance , and fibrinolysis.
Treatments are given based on the severity. Acute infectious situations typically will be treated with one treatment daily or every other day until improved or resolved. Chronic situations are treated on a variable schedule, but a typical pattern of treatment would be one treatment two times per week for three weeks, and then one treatment weekly for four weeks, then gradually moving towards one treatment every two months as maintenance. The treatments may take effect immediately and the benefits are apparent for up to 45 days.
After your Photo-oxidation treatment:
Ensure adequate water intake. Avoid taking antioxidants for about 24 hrs following treatment and make sure you are eliminating properly – exercise, increase fiber, colonic therapy, herbal laxatives.
What can you expect after a treatment?
Some people feel better immediately afterwards. Occasionally, some people feel worse before they feel better. This is because the body is actually detoxifying from the treatment. The stimulated oxidation process can cause your body to "break" an infection.
In individuals with weakened immune systems (chronic fatigue, Candida, multiple sensitivities, etc.) it may take up to four treatments (rarely more) before the immune system is noticeably better.
