UV light therapy is a safe, effective, drug-free solution used to fight infection and stimulate the immune system. UV light therapy has been used for over 70 years to treat over 1 million people with significant results and little or no side effects. Before antibiotics were introduced, it was used to treat illness. Ultraviolet light has been used for disinfection for many years. It supports the body’s defenses to quickly target and destroy all infected cells. The healthy cells are not affected, while the infectious organisms absorb five times the amount of energy from the light, killing them in the process.
Not only is it useful for killing bacteria, fungi and viruses, but it stimulates the immune system and a variety of enzyme systems. Ultraviolet light enhances the body’s ability to produce antibodies against the infection, which then boosts the immune system. Additionally, this form of light therapy can be beneficial for antibiotic resistant bacteria or viruses.
UV Light Therapy supports the body’s defenses to quickly target and destroy all infected cells, leaving the healthy cells unaffected. A small amount of the patient’s blood is withdrawn from their arm and placed in an IV bag with saline solution. The mixed solution then passes through the UV light instrument, exposing it to ultraviolet light, which energizes the blood cells and returns back into the patient’s arm. These energized cells then stimulate the immune system.
