Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Synopsis

Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation or extracorporeal photopheresis is a process that removes a small amount blood from the patient, exposes it to light then returns the blood to the patient intravenously. This process is proven to be effective in the inactivation of toxins, contaminates, destruction of viruses and the elimination of bacteria, while it activates white blood cells, helping blood viscosity, increasing blood oxygen transport and decreasing platelet aggregation. Improving oxygen delivery and consumption, rise in circulation, stimulation of mitochondrial oxidation. The UV light’s biochemical reaction varies depending on vitamins and nutrients present in the blood. The light inactivates toxin and viruses, while it destroys and inhibits bacterial growth. It also accelerates the lymphatic and circulatory activities, normalizing metabolism and glandular actions, while stimulating the sympathetic system. UV light helps facilitate oxygen metabolism increasing oxygen absorption and leading to fast symptomatic relief and long term healing. Many health problems can be linked to inadequate production of cellular energy, traced back to faulty oxygen metabolism. It breaks down toxins and helps the white blood cells in their phagocytes. After the blood is exposed to the ultraviolet light it continues to emit secondary emanations to the rest of the blood once back in the body, inactivating destructive pathogens deep within tissue. All of this activating antibody production and in turn immunizing the body against diseases. It is thought that the UV light plays a part in stabilizing the mineral balance in the blood. This safe, simple, inexpensive treatment is an extremely effective method for treating many aliments. It has been found that the photodynamic effect can be increased by incorporating light activating drugs. There are many natural photosensitive elements in blood including; white blood cells, antibodies, steroids, insulin, porphyrins, liposomes and some amino acids. (Treatment Indications)
