immune system punchUVBI goes by many names: Biophotonic Light Therapy, Extracorporeal Photopheresis, and Hematologic Oxidative Therapy Photo-Luminescence.  In simpler terms, it is an immune-boosting therapy that uses UV lights to transform your immune system into a stronger fighting machine.  This wonderful treatment is a time-tested therapy that has been around for over 70 years.  It is considered a very safe therapy to use for infection and autoimmune disease. Since most patients with Chronic Fatigue (CFS/ME), Lyme, and Autoimmune disease have some kind of injection connection, it makes sense why this therapy is so helpful in improving their symptoms.  At the Idaho Center for Integrative Medicine, we routinely combine this treatment with Major Autohemotherapy (ozone treatment of the blood) for impreved results.   Are you or a loved one plagued by fatigue and a weak immune system?  Help fight chronic infections by trying UVBI yourself. 

What is Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation?

UVBI involves taking your own blood out and then slowly running it back into your body through a glass cuvette that passes through a set of ultraviolet lights at specific wavelengths.   The procedure is safe, and it takes less than an hour to perform.  Most people with chronic conditions will require a series of 5-10 treatments for improved results.
