UVI, also cited as Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation, is one of the safest and natural way to help treat a wide-range of diseases. The process for UVI therapy is quite straightforward. In this treatment, a patient’s blood is exposed to ultraviolet light so that it can boost the overall immune system of the body to kill infections and bacteria.
UVI treatment is purely non-surgical that does not have a high-risk of pain, scars, or side-effects.
How Does UVI Therapy Work?
The provider will gently remove a small amount of blood from the patient’s arm. The procedure is similar to what is followed during the blood donation at a blood bank. The blood sample is filtered into the tubing and then passed under ultraviolet light. Bacteria and viruses absorb the ultraviolet light, which destroys them.
Ultraviolet therapy also directs the body’s immune system to combat infections and illnesses. Once the irradiation procedure is completed, the extracted blood is injected back into the patient’s body.
Conditions That Can Be helped By UVI Therapy
UVI therapy is used to help treat a wide-range of infections in the body. At RMAI, our providers utilize UV treatment to treat psoriasis, lymph nodes disorders, and other non-specific diseases associated with viral and bacterial infections.
UVI treatment may also help people suffering from autoimmune diseases, Lyme disease, and chronic fatigue. As this therapy modulates the immune system, it may help enhance the body’s ability to fight against a low level of viruses and bacteria available in the bloodstream.
Advantages of UVI Treatment
UVI therapy offers a wide-range of benefits to patients. The treatment may provide anti-inflammatory effects and it may strengthen the immune system of the body to a large extent. The photons available in UVB improves oxygenation of tissues that may help with wound healing.
The therapy may also help the body to metabolize uric acid, glucose, and cholesterol. The treatment also balances the body’s immune process and enhances pain tolerance. People receiving radiation or chemotherapy may also benefit from UVI therapy. Most patients experience a reduction in tissue pain in just one session.
