Ultraviolet Light Therapy For Many Diseases

Exposing the blood to ultraviolet light for therapeutic purposes was first performed in the US in the 1920s. It was found to have many benefits and few downsides and became very popular. By the 1930s there was even a policy statement by the FDA “recognizing the therapeutic benefits of Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation or UBI”!

The use of light to treat disease was very forward thinking because the light is nothing more than high-frequency vibration. Unfortunately, no one can patent ultraviolet light so it fell out of favor with the dramatic advances in antibiotics, vaccines, and corticosteroids in the 1950s.

This was a setback because the downside, or “side effects” of these drugs were not known at the time and ultraviolet light treatments have very few of these negative results.

The last two decades have seen an escalation of immune-related illnesses such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, allergic conditions, HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis. UBI seems particularly adapted to address these conditions. This has led to a revival of interest among medical practitioners worldwide including the US.

In 1974 German biophysicist Fritz-Albert Popp, Ph.D. proved the existence of biophotons. These are light particles given off by our DNA producing many effects in the body. His biophoton theory points to many startling insights into the life processes and may well provide the major elements of a future theory of life and holistic medical practice based on such an approach. UBI treatments have been shown to increase the biophoton output from the red blood cells after treatment.

As a simple, non-toxic, FDA approved procedure, UBI is a potent immune system stimulant. Not only did it demonstrate potent antiviral and antibacterial effects, but it also had the huge advantage of producing no serious documented side-effects after being administered to more than 30,000 patients over a period of 70 years!

Besides inactivating viruses and bacteria, physiologically UBI has been shown to have a number of beneficial effects. These include increasing oxygen levels, causing a detoxification effect, deactivating both snake venoms and bacterial toxins and enhancing phagocytosis (the process by which specific immune cells engulf and digest foreign matter, debris, microbes, and tumor cells).
These treatments have also been shown to cause vasodilatation (dilating blood vessels) and decrease edema, activate cortisone-like molecules and control nausea and vomiting.

This is just a short list of benefits. Other conditions that have shown benefits from these treatments include influenza, herpes simplex/zoster, measles, viral pneumonia, and polio. Even more conditions such as non-healing wounds/fractures, cirrhosis, tetanus, malaria, typhoid and seizures have shown improvement using this treatment.

There are even studies underway at Michigan State and Johns Hopkins University to address the scourge of Alzheimer’s disease with this approach.

The International Institute of Biophysics, a network of research labs in more than 10 countries, based in Germany, is coordinating research in this field.

The future is here right now! A whole new era of “Medicine” has arrived!
