Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation
Photo-oxidation therapy is also known as Photoluminescence, Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UVB), and Extracorporeal Photophoresis. A photo-oxidation (UVB Therapy) treatment consists of the insertion of a needle into a vein and the withdrawal of 60 or more cc’s of blood that is passed through tubing where it is exposed to an ultraviolet (UV Ultraviolet “C” Light) light briefly. The treated blood is then directly returned to the patient’s bloodstream. The only discomfort is during the insertion of the needle and is minimal. The effects are long lasting and there is an absence of harmful side effects. The simple treatments are easily combined with other medical procedures and are economical, dependable and gentle for the patient.
UVB Ultraviolet Therapy (Photo-oxidation therapy) is a biological healing modality utilizing ultraviolet irradiation of the blood (with UV Ultraviolet C light) to produce the following beneficial photochemical reactions:
- Improved micro circulation and oxygenation of tissues.
- Anti-inflammatory effects
- Stimulation of the immune system
- Increased tolerance of the body towards radiation or chemotherapy.
- Cardiovascular protection through increased metabolism of cholesterol, uric acid, and glucose
- Resolution of vascular spasms
- Powerful anti-infection properties
