The Safety of UBI

UBI is safer than aspirin. Initially, you may think that the statement I just made is a little bit radical, but the data proves my statement. There has never been a death or even a major medical complication that has been recorded as a result of using UBI. The most common side effect known to UBI is flushing of the skin which is caused by increased blood flow. Occasionally patients will experience light flu-like symptoms when excessive pathogen die-off occurs and creates a mildly toxic situation. When this takes place, the body can become overloaded and must work to get rid of the unwanted intruder. This is often referred to as a "Herxheimer Response" and is short-lived. In especially sick patients, it is wise to begin with a half-treatment to minimize the possibility of a Herxheimer Response.

A Russian study (Marochkov AV, Doronin VA, Kravtsov NN. "Complications in ultraviolet irradiation of the blood" Anesteziol Reanimatol. 1990 Jul-Aug;(4):55-6) assessing complications in 2,380 sessions of UVBI therapy reported that 1.3% of the sessions had "complications associated with the technical performance of the manipulation." Also, twelve patients reacted to the ultraviolet blood irradiation itself resulting in, "shivering (four cases), hypotension (two cases), nasal bleeding (three cases), hypoglycemia (one case), bronchospasm (one case) and urticarial or skin rash (one case)."

Aspirin, Ibuprofen, naproxen sodium and other NSAIDs which are over the counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have a much worse record:

“Conservative calculations estimate that approximately 107,000 patients are hospitalized annually for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, (NSAID)-related gastrointestinal (GI) complications and at least 16,500 NSAID-related deaths occur each year among arthritis patients alone."

~ Singh Gurkirpal, MD, “Recent Considerations in Non-steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug Gastropathy,” The American Journal of Medicine, July 27, 1998, p. 31S

The safety of UBI has been established for over 80 years of history. Its every day, common usage in the European medical community is proof that this therapy is both effective and safe.

The realization that such an amazing therapy with all of its life-saving, disease-curing affects has virtually disappeared from today's conventional medicine should make us sick (no pun intended). How would you feel if someone you know and love was not given the best, most effective treatment possible and suffered because of it?

Easy and painless... almost

You would think that such an effective, time-tested therapy might be time consuming or difficult. Nothing could be further from the truth. Although in the past there have been some obstacles to overcome, these have been eliminated in the last few years.

Historically, 250ml of blood was removed from the patient into a sterile, vacuum bottle. An anticoagulant was then added and this mixture was channeled past the UV light and back into the patient.

New studies have shown that an equal or even more effective therapy can be performed if the blood is diluted with saline. Also, a newly designed cuvette (special glass tube that the blood flows through) allows for more exposure of the blood to the light in a shorter amount of time.

Now only 40ccs (less than ¼ cup) of blood is withdrawn from the patient using a butterfly needle and syringe. A small amount of heparin is added to the blood and then combined with approximately 160ml of saline. The IV tube is attached to the needle in the patient's arm and then gravity fed past the UV light and right back to the patient using the same needle used to withdraw the blood. This procedure takes less than half an hour in most clinics.

A UBI unit on every floor in the hospital

One of the major issues around the country today is that of antibiotic resistant bacteria.

"In affluent nations, infections acquired in settings such as hospitals and nursing homes are a major source of illness and death. In addition, community-acquired infections are emerging, both as independent epidemics and as primary sources of resistance in hospitals. If resistance to treatment continues to spread, our interconnected, high-tech world may find itself back in the dark ages of medicine, before today’s miracle drugs ever existed."

~ What is Antibiotic Resistance and Why is it a problem?

MRSA and tuberculosis are two well known diseases that have been in the news. Hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) also called is becoming a problem as well. “Killer pneumonia” along with sepsis could be easily treated in the hospital and many could survive if only this virus-taming therapy was utilized.

Sepsis, a deadly immune system mediated inflammatory response to a bacterial infection, is suffered by about 750,000 people in the United States annually. UBI therapy has a history of stellar results when dealing with infections such as sepsis, but without widespread acceptance, it has been relegated to the shelf.

There has never been a non-drug therapy that is so simple to use and affects so many disorders. It is not a silver bullet, but when used either alone or in combination with other therapies it is as near miraculous as any therapy has ever been. Light has been known to have positive medical effects for decades and thanks to a few brave doctors, this proven and effective therapy is available in most major cities around the country.

Although this therapy has been relegated to the "integrative" doctors in America, there is still hope that it will become more widely accepted. In fact, a large research hospital in the Midwest has recently considered doing studies using UBI in a double blind, placebo controlled study. If all goes well, this would show the medical world that UBI should be reinstated to its rightful place. This small machine could be wheeled into any hospital room and hooked up in a matter of minutes. No drug reactions, no complications just the healing power of light.

In 2012, an American physician from an African mission hospital considering all of the infections that they deal with called it “A hospital in a box!” While this is an obvious overstatement, it makes a solid point.

How would you like a therapy that...

  • Has 80 years of history
  • Has virtually no side effects
  • Is inexpensive
  • Has an efficacy rate of 60-80%
  • Has a positive effect on over 60 disease
  • Has 200+ medical studies
  • Has helped over one million patients
  • Is commonly used in Germany and other places
  • Cures instead of covers up

To sum up

Today, Biophotic Therapy (UBI) is almost totally unknown to the medical profession, even when there are over 200 medical studies supporting its virtues. In fact, when mentioned to most Western-taught doctors, it appears to them as an outdated and ineffective therapy of the past. If one attempts to support their argument with studies and the fact that Russia, Germany and most of Europe uses this method, they will pass it off as of no consequence.

Why? Because they were not instructed regarding this method during their time in medical school. The truth is that there is virtually no support from the drug industry, the research labs or the medical universities. They believe that something considered effective in the 1940s must be out of date today, but nothing could be further from the truth. The tremendous tragedy is that many deaths, not to mention the suffering of a great number from various diseases and disorders could be avoided if only this simple therapy were more widely utilized.

One doctor who worked with UBI for over 20 years said it well:

"It is unthinkable that what could be the best solution ever to stopping the world's killer diseases is being ignored, scorned and rejected, but that is exactly what is happening right now. The procedure is called photoluminescence (UBI). It is a thoroughly tested, proven therapy that uses the healing power of light to perform almost miraculous cures. This remarkable treatment works its incredible cures by stimulating the body’s OWN immune responses. That is why it cures so many ailments and why it has been especially effective against AIDS. Yet, 50 years ago it virtually disappeared from the halls of medicine."

Although we have made tremendous strides as a society in the field of medicine, we have also lost ground in some areas of the health world. We need to recover some of those areas and for me, that starts with Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation. There is hope. The good news is you have read these articles and now have information that can change your life and the lives of those you love. Passing this information on to others may be one of the greatest gifts that you could give them.
