Biophotonic Therapy: Harnessing the Power of UV Light

Using ultraviolet light as a medical treatment inside your body may sound like science fiction. But ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) — or biophotonic therapy — has been around for more than 75 years.

In fact, it had widespread use during the 1940s and ’50s for treating numerous diseases, including arthritis, pneumonia, asthma, and tuberculosis. However, when antibiotics came on the medical scene, UBI treatments declined, despite their numerous benefits.

As providers of cutting-edge regenerative therapy treatments, our team at Independent Physical Medicine is proud to offer safe and innovative solutions like biophotonic therapy. Here’s what you need to know about how UBI works and whether it’s right for you.

How biophotonic therapy works

Ultraviolet (UV) light is a type of electromagnetic radiation. You can thank this energy for giving you a healthy-looking tan after you spend time out in the sun. When UV levels get high, however, they can lead to sunburn and cause damage on a cellular level. 

Biophotonic therapy treatments safely harness the power of UV light. We draw approximately a half-pint of blood from your arm and run it through a tube, exposing it to three different spectrums of UV light before returning it to your bloodstream. 

When exposed to this UV energy, healthy cells in your blood remain completely intact, but pathogens — like bacterial, fungal, and viral cells — absorb the photonic energy, which destroys them. 

The benefits of biophotonic therapy

Ultraviolet blood irradiation causes your system to develop an autogenous or self-generated vaccine. In very general terms, it kills bacteria and viruses and supercharges your immune system. As a result, biophotonic therapy offers numerous physical benefits, including:

UBI promotes homeostasis, or balance, within your body. Undergoing biophotonic therapy can also protect your cardiovascular system and increase your body’s tolerance of cancer treatments like radiation and chemotherapy. 

In addition, this procedure doesn’t come with the side effects or risks seen with many prescription drugs or surgical treatments, and it doesn’t destroy helpful bacteria or depress your immune system.

When to consider biophotonic therapy

UBI is a time-tested treatment. Because of the strong immune response it triggers, we recommend biophotonic therapy for a variety of conditions, including:

You can also find relief from other conditions, like yeast infections, nonhealing wounds, allergies, and chronic fatigue. Or simply get a general boost to your immune system before a medical procedure.
