Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation


Ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) is a treatment therapy that time has indeed forgotten. UBI was extensively used in the 1940’s and 1950’s to treat medical conditions including pneumonia, tuberculosis and even cancer.  The advent of antibiotics lead to a decline in the use of UBI as an effective treatment option. 


Now, with the increasing incidence of antibiotic resistant infections and a desire for more natural therapies, UBI is enjoying a type of rebirth.

The UBI procedure involves inserting a small catheter (similar to giving blood) into a vein in the forearm.  A small amount of blood is removed with sterile technique; approximately 200 cc or 6 ounces.  The blood passes through a flat quartz cuvette, is irradiated with ultraviolet light in a closed, airtight, sterile circuit and returned to the blood stream.  The entire procedure takes about one hour.

Research shows UBI strengthens the immune system and improves overall health.  UBI has been shown to have the following benefits:

  • Increases oxygen absorption into tissue

  • Inhibits fungal, viral and bacterial growth

  • Enhances the immune system’s ability to fight infection

  • Improves circulation and decreases platelet aggregation

  • Improves circulation by dilating blood vessels

  • Improves the body’s ability to detoxify and inactivate or remove toxins

UBID Therapy is beneficial for:

  • UBI may be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments for conditions including:

  • Allergies – inhaled, food or chemical

  • Arthritis – osteoarthritis, rheumatoid or psoriatic

  • Autoimmune illnesses – e.g. SLE, RA, Ulcerative Colitis, Scleroderma...
