UBI or ultraviolet blood irradiation is a light treatment which is also known as Photoluminescence, Extracorporeal Photophoresis, Photo-oxidation or UVB Therapy.
Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) therapy is a treatment which involves withdrawing a small amount of blood into a syringe and then briefly exposing that blood to selected frequencies of Ultraviolet Light and then re-infusing the blood back into the body. The blood is also treated with a very small amount of medicine to prevent it from clotting (heparin). This treatment is often performed as an add-on therapy to blood that has been mixed with ozone as part of a major autologous hemotherapy (MAH) ozone treatment. However, it can also be done as a single treatment without ozone.
UBI therapy is used clinically as both a specific (ie psoriasis,) and non-specific (chronic infections, chronic fatigue, auto-immune diseases, scleroderma, etc.) treatment. Certain forms of cancer, auto-immune diseases, infections and tissue transplant rejection have all been published as benefiting from Biophotoinc – UBI therapy. Although there are many positive medical studies and testimonies regarding this therapy, this therapy is still largely unknown in the United States and most US physicians would still consider this therapy to be “investigational” or “alternative”.
