The Medical Action of UV Light

The wavelength of ultraviolet light is shorter than the violet end of the visible spectrum and longer than the wavelength of X-rays.

People may get vaccinated for a variety of reasons. Most everyone has been vaccinated at some point in their life: as a child, before international travel or maybe during flu season. Vaccines are a commonly accepted and effective way to fight virus and bacteria, but do you know why?

The basic premise is really quite simple. A live virus is attenuated (weakened) and then introduced into the body of the patient. When a weakened or dead pathogen is introduced into the bloodstream, the body’s B-cells go to work. It is these cells that are responsible for fighting disease-causing pathogens. Once the B-cells are stimulated to act, antibodies are formed and the body develops immunity to the particular pathogen. It can, however, become a problem or be ineffective if you don’t happen to have the correct strand of bacteria or if it has morphed so that the body doesn’t recognize and attack the correct “invader.” There are also those who have become sick because of the vaccination itself.

With Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation, the UVC (Ultraviolet C wave length – 254 nm) light dismantles the exact virus or bacteria that you have in your blood. It is then reintroduced into your bloodstream acting like an individually tailored vaccine. This uniquely personal “vaccine” has been shown to be very effective against illnesses such as shingles, MRSA and a host of other hard to treat microbes when other medicines or vaccines are not.

Treatments have been effective for over 60 different diseases including the following:

Viral infections

  • HIV
  • Hepatitis
  • Influenza
  • Herpes simplex/zoster
  • Mononucleosis
  • Mumps
  • Measles Infections
  • Viral Pneumonia
  • Polio

Bacterial infections

  • Pneumonia
  • Wound Infections
  • Septicemia (staphylococcus, streptococcus, pneumococcus)
  • Lymphatic infections (lymphangitis)
  • Peritonitis
  • Recurrent skin infections (furunculosis, carbunulosis)
  • E-coli
  • Necrotizing infections

Autoimmune diseases

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lupus
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Psoriasis
  • Psoriatic Arthritis
  • Raynaud’s Disease
  • Sclera derma
  • Multiple Sclerosis

UVA, UVB, UVC: Forms of UV Light

What about other bands of UV light? Are they helpful? UVA does not have the germicidal killing power but it is easily absorbed into the hemoglobin and has a wonderful balancing effect on the immune system. As the photonic energy from the UVA is dispersed throughout the body, it can help to “kick-start” a compromised immune system or calm one that is overreacting.

This has all been documented on thousands of patients (i.e. Ganelina and K.A. Samoilova, eds. Healing Affects of UBI Mechanism of the Influence of Blood Irradiation with Ultraviolet Rays on the Organisms of Humans and Animals [Russian] Leningrad: 1986 pp. 207-11 & p 236). It works for autoimmune disorders such as: asthma, allergies, rashes, MS, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. This is not an “all-the-time” cure but in 50-70% of the cases, after three or four treatments, the patient will notice significant, positive results. They return occasionally for a “booster” UBI treatment.

Many patients have suffered from different autoimmune disorders and have been able to get relief thanks to UBI treatments. Here are some of their testimonies:


“Several years back I developed an autoimmune disease that attacked my nerves and arteries. This resulted in sharp pains throughout my body as it moved through my muscles and joints. After conventional therapy and a list of different drugs for years, I still could not control the pain. I now have completed ten UBI treatments and have had a considerable reduction in pain. I have been able to reduce my drugs to the minimum amount to prevent a relapse. I have more energy now and thank GOD for the availability of this treatment.”

“I had extreme allergies to smoke and a number of other things. If I was near any smoke or someone who smoked, I could not breathe and lost my voice for several hours. Chocolate gave me migraine headaches, caffeine and alcohol sent my nerves sky high. I was told nothing could be done and to ‘learn to live with it’. After only three Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation treatments, my allergies were cured! Someone was within five feet of me smoking and I didn’t have an attack. I ate chocolate and had some wine and nothing happened! I had no reaction to them. It is wonderful to not have to wonder when my allergies are going to kick in or decide to disrupt my life.”

Rash/Skin Reaction

“I was involved with plastics and inks in the place that I worked. After some time, I developed a rash that would just not go away. Over the weekend it would subside a bit but then come right back as soon as I started to work. Doctors gave me a number of drugs and creams to use, but nothing helped. I quit work but unfortunately the rash on my face and neck continued. After trying everything I could for 5 YEARS I came in for a UBI treatment and in 1 treatment the rash disappeared. It was a miracle! I have been rash free for 6 months now.”

Multiple Sclerosis

“In 1998, I was diagnosed with progressive Multiple Sclerosis. I was given different interferon medications but my symptoms were not subsiding. I tried acupuncture, apitherapy and zone and water diets. In 2004, I lost my balance often and had a hard time speaking and seeing. I lost most of my sight in my left eye and my legs were in constant pain. It felt as if a hot skewer went right through my muscles; the pain was constant and excruciating. My hands and arms ached constantly in 2007. After the third Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) treatment, the pain in my legs was gone. After the fifth treatment, my eyesight in my left eye became clearer and after the seventh treatment my balance was returning. After the tenth treatment, I wanted to have a new MRI taken to compare with my 2004 MRI to show what common sense and prayer can do to an autoimmune disease. I believe the UBI treatment was the main reason for my healing.”

More oxygen, better blood flow, healthier red blood cells make for healing

In the previous section we talked about some of the positive results that UBI has had for viral, bacterial and autoimmune diseases, but the effects of UBI don’t stop there.

Other healing effects of this treatment include:

  • Increased tolerance of the body towards radiation and chemotherapy
  • Increased oxygen, dilation of blood vessels, improved flow and structure of the blood along with better microcirculation
  • Activation of metabolic processes and improvement of their regulation
  • Stimulation for the production of red blood cells
  • Rapid positive changes in cell and blood plasma


“One afternoon in June of 2009 we received a gentleman of over ninety years into our clinic. His son, who was a friend of ours, brought him in and immediately we could see the discomfort he was living in. His arms were covered in sores and he had been diagnosed with dementia. In an effort to improve his quality of life, they thought they would give the UBI treatments a shot. After just two treatments, not only did the skin sores disappear, but he spoke in sentences for the first time in nine months, he was able to recognize his kids, get in and out of the car by himself and resumed using the bathroom by himself. I am not saying that he was cured, but that his quality of life drastically improved for a time because of improved oxygenation, better rheology of the blood, vasodilation and greater microcirculation.”

“Doctors were considering amputation. The man’s foot was near black from gangrene. He came into our clinic where we gave him two UBI treatments each week for four weeks and documented his progress with photos. The man’s foot completely healed. It was truly a medical miracle!”

Poison Ivy

“I had suffered from allergies, most notably poison ivy eruptions, for years with my landscaping business. The poison ivy outbreaks were so bad not even caladryl lotion would work on the blisters and I had to use Clorox. Since my first UBI treatment I have not had a blister, let alone an outbreak.”
