UV Blood Irradiation (UBI)

It has been long known that there is a connection between sunlight and health. For over one hundred years, light therapy has been used to treat a variety of medical conditions. This technique is called Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation or Photoluminescence. Photoluminescence increases oxygen levels in the blood and thereby improves a variety of medical conditions.

Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation, simply called UBI, is a simple, painless and safe means of treating a person for a variety of illnesses. The procedure involves removing about 200 cc of blood (about the amount in a typical glass of water) and passing the blood through a quartz cuvette where it is exposed to ultraviolet light and returned to the bloodstream. The ultraviolet light used is the same wavelength produced by sunlight.

Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation may improve your health by:

  • Inactivation of toxins
  • Destruction and inhibition of bacteria, viruses and fungi by activation of white blood cell function
  • Stimulation of cellular immunity
  • Activation of steroid hormones and stimulation of corticosteroid production
  • Improved circulation and decreased platelet aggregation
  • Vasodilation – dilates blood vessels
  • Decreased blood viscosity – improves blood flow
  • Increases oxygenation in the blood

Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation has been used to treat the following conditions:

  • Allergies – inhaled and food
  • Autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and Sjorgen’s Syndrome
  • Cancer – various types including breast, colon and prostate
  • Chronic candidiasis – chronic yeast overgrowth
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome and conditions
  • Mononucleosis
  • MRSA infections
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Pain
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Shingles
  • Toxicity
  • Various other common medical conditions.


UBI transmits energy to the blood. The effect of the ultraviolet light on the blood affects the chemical energies in the blood creating a strong response in the body. White blood cells begin to stabilize. The blood itself will come into balance. If the body is anemic, photoluminescence tends to build red blood cells. Photoluminescence helps the liver rid itself of fat and hence helps in treating elevated cholesterol and triglyceride problems. It allows for more efficient detoxification by the liver. Photoluminescence increases the cell’s permeability which enhances the body’s ability to produce antibodies and fight infection.

Photoluminescence indirectly attacks pathogenic microorganisms by causing a chemical reaction in the cell membrane increasing the cells ability to fight infection. The blood that is exposed to ultraviolet light continues to emit secondary radiation. Some scientists believe this may be the way ultraviolet blood irradiation has cumulative effects. Each treatment builds on and enhances the effects of previous treatments.

Overall, ultraviolet blood irradiation is a simple, safe and effective therapy for a variety of medical conditions and we use it often as support for other therapies.
