Ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy has been shown to have many effects, such as increased oxygen to various tissues and organs, inactivation of toxins, and activation of white blood cells.

Ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy  (UVB), which involves extracting a small portion of the individual’s blood (300-400 cc) and exposing it to UV light, is administered intravenously through a sterile catheter and quartz cuvette.

Developed by Russian scientists and used since the early 1920’s, UVB reinforces the concept of light as energy. During therapy, blood soaks up the light and, depending on the combination of UV light used, a number of positive health outcomes can be achieved.

Wavelength determines the characteristic healing properties of each light. For example, UVC light has more germicidal (bacteria, yeast, virus) activity than UVA sources alone.

As the UV treated blood is re-introduced into the arm of the individual, it acts as a kind of immune system blueprint against various infectious agents. UVB has been shown to have many rheological effects, such as increased oxygen to various tissues and organs, inactivation of toxins, and activation of white blood cells.

According to the American Cancer Society, ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy is approved by the FDA for treating T-cell lymphoma involving the skin. Clinical trials of ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy have been successful against pneumococcus, staphylococcus, streptococcus, and a mixture of other microbes.

In the end, UVB is painless, completely safe, and offers numerous life-changing health benefits.

UBV Benefits

  • Anti-inflammatory

  • Decreased viscosity of blood
  • Vasodilation
  • Increased metabolism of cholesterol, uric acid, and glucose
  • Anti-infection, anti-disease properties
  • Decreased platelet aggregation
  • Liver detoxification
  • Stimulation of fibrinolysis
  • Activation of steroid hormones
  • Inactivation of toxins

Root Causes of Depression

  • Cerebral infarction
  • Virus meningitis
  • Lyme disease
  • Diabetes
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Pulmonary cardiopathy
  • Bronchial asthma
  • Lung abscess
  • Chronic pain and fatigue
  • Shingles
  • Multiple sclerosis

  • Autoimmune diseases (lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Sjogren’s Syndrome)
  • High blood pressure

Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Therapy Wavelengths

UVC –  Ultraviolet A, B, and C are absorbed by the blood, but only UVC light contains the highest germicidal activity. UVC is capable of breaking apart the DNA strands within the nucleus of living cells. By deactivating pathogens in the blood and re-inserting them, the body has the ability to create antibodies and fight back. According to studies, UVC light killed both lipid-enveloped (LE) and non enveloped (NLE) virus and bacteria. Even though only .16%  of the blood is exposed, the results are astounding. When UVC comes into contact with red blood cells, it is absorbed by the hemoglobin, which reduces inflammation, increases O2 in the system, and improves overall microcirculation.

UVA – The longest of the UV lights, UVA is the most absorbent wavelength. UVA light is able to modify the immune response of cells and carries anti-inflammatory properties. Even though the machine carries UVC, it takes a mixture of both to modulate or alter the function of the white cells that are having an auto-immune effect.


  • Is ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy safe?

Successfully used in Russia, Germany, and the United States, UVB is backed by many published, well-documented studies which document its effectiveness against many well-known diseases and infections. Before vaccines and antibiotics flooded the medical market, UBI was used extensively throughout the 1940’s and 1950’s. Now that we are left with more antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria, UBI has a chance to rewrite medical history. Since everything is administered in a controlled, carefully monitored environment, all risk is minimized.

  • Does ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy hurt or cause pain?

UBV is not only effective, but it also uses zero medication. Other than a small amount of anticoagulant (Heparin), which is added to prevent any issues with clotting, UBI is able to fight infection and prevent chronic and acute disease states. In less than an hours time, UBI is able to transmit potent energy to the blood in a single, customized dose.
