[back] Ultraviolet blood irradiation
UBI--Irradiating Blood For Infections
A review from the Eclectic Medicine International (EMI) staff at http://www.holisticcancersolutions.com/
"The history of Ultraviolet treatments, or Photoluminescence Therapy, reaches back at least as far as the clinical use of medical ozone. The treatment is similar to major autohemo-therapy; blood is taken from one arm, it is exposed to ultraviolet radiation, then led back through the other arm. The two treatment modalities are close relatives; there are many similarities between them. However, there is one major difference: U.B.I. has been approved by the FDA, and medical doctors in the USA are free to use it. This fact in itself brings up some very disturbing questions. As you will see in this report, U.B.I., an entirely harmless, benign, and painless procedure, has already been proven very effective decades ago in reversing and completely eliminating viral infections that today are regarded as irreversible, and are treated with dangerous and expensive drugs.
Being informed about this treatment may one day save your life, so let us take a closer look at U.B.I.
Despite the fact that this modality is very little known in North America, it is not one of those obscure experimental methods that are practiced in the basements of some private clinics. Quite the opposite! U.B.I. has been used in mainstream medical practice in the United States from as far back as 1935. In Europe, particularly in the former Soviet Union, millions of patients were treated successfully with blood irradiation. One of the reasons for the interest in this therapy in the USSR was that it is a very inexpensive, yet effective procedure. Why didn't it become a major tool against viral diseases in the hands of US medical doctors?
In 1998 we have received a report from an M.D. in Ohio, who has just finished a large clinical study with 32 Hepatitis C patients. He reversed all of them with ultraviolet treatments, completely eliminating the infection. This was very similar to reports from naturopathic physicians in British Columbia, Canada, who are regularly achieving such results with medical ozone.
The U.B.I. equipment is being distributed in the USA by a firm called Foundation for Blood Irradiation, Inc. Its owner and medical director is Dr. Carl Schleicher. They offer training seminars to interested doctors. The followings are excerpts from their literature.
U.B.I. Therapy is intravenously applied ultraviolet energy.
This produces effects of a profound nature in human beings with photochemical, biochemical & physiological aspects.
These effects have proven to be of great value clinically in a wide variety of disease processes.
No harmful effects have been observed over a period of more than 25 years, during which UBI has been given more than 500.000 times to over 30.000 patients by at least 100 physicians.
Effects of UBI:
A rapid detoxifying effect.
An increase in venous oxygen in patients with depressed blood oxygen values.
A marked anti-inflammatory effect in diseases where severe damaging inflammatory processes exist.
A powerful regulatory or normalizing effect on the autonomic nervous system.
A rapid rise of resistance to acute or chronic viral or bacterial infections.
UBI has excellent effects in:
Viral infections (Hepatitis -- serum, infectious, acute, chronic, Mumps, Measles, Mononucleosis, Herpes, etc.)
Bacterial infections (Septicemias, staphylococcus, pneumococcus, streptococcus, coli, salmonella, pneumonias, etc.)
Profound overwhelming toxemias
Severe damaging inflammatory processes
Non-healing wounds, ETC.
Treatment requires from fifteen to twenty minutes. Outpatients rest fifteen minutes, after which time they resume their normal activities. The quantity of blood withdrawn is small, and the procedure doesn't cause either pain or discomfort.
END OF EXCERPTS.
In a letter written to us in 1998, Dr. Schleicher remarks: "We haven't yet seen an infectious disease we could not treat."
Here is the introduction to the 1997 Edition of a book written about UBI:
Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation: A History and Guide to Clinical Application
The publication of this book has been years in the making, with many hours of
fine detective work spent in finding some of the missing chapters long
considered lost. The Foundation for Blood Irradiation (FFBI), its well-wishers,
supporters and staff view this accomplishment as a coming of age and
renaissance for Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI). Those who participated in this effort can be justifiably pleased.
The writing of this manual began in the 1930's with the pioneers of this technique, specifically, Olney, Miley, Knott and Lewis. They treated thousands of patients with a broad spectrum of disease complaints, and closely observed these patients, often over a period of years. Because of their dedication and vision, we now have concrete documentation on the efficacy and safety of UBI. Their efforts have filled the pages of this manual and make a profound argument for UBI to become one of the more effective treatment methods of our time.
Writing was completed in 1997 with the addition of Chapter 23, which documents recent research into the treatment of HIV/AIDS using UBI. This Chapter replaces the original Chapter 23, which dealt with diseases of connective tissue, and regrettably was lost over the many years since work began on this project.
UBI was originally created through the research of E.K. Knott to fight the ravages of poliomyelitis in the 1930's, which it did with considerable success. However with the advent of antibiotics and the Salk vaccine this method of treatment fell into disuse during the 1950's and 1960's, and was for a long period of time overlooked by most physicians. Those who had not been totally seduced by the use of antibiotics continued to apply UBI and were soon rewarded with the knowledge that UBI could successfully treat many other ailments than polio, as well as those diseases not responding to antibiotic treatment. As news of this discovery spread, UBI found a renaissance in the 1980's and has been re- introduced by FFBI in the 90's, with an improved, state-of-the-art device.
The Foundation for Blood Irradiation (FFBI), an organization founded in New
York in 1947 by Louis Ripley, John Winters, Dr. H.T. Lewis and others, moved to
Maryland in 1979 and continues in operation today under the direction of Dr.
Carl Schleicher. Recently FFBI has obtained research reports of the use
of UBI in the treatment of HIV/AIDS; projects are currently in process for treating immune system disorders, Alzheimer's Disease and Gulf War Syndrome. While no claims can be made for UBI's efficacy in treating these illnesses, funds are being sought for research.
Since this method uses no drugs and lowers the cost of medical treatment, it can be expected that there will be resistance from those who feel that their interests are threatened by this device. A similar situation occurred in the 1950's and 60's when computers replaced many persons doing clerical keyboard operation. Now we can see that computers have actually created more jobs at higher rates of pay than the near minimum wage of keypunch operators. It is expected that the same could happen here with the advent of energy medicine and the use of alternative, non-drug approaches to the treatment of disease. It should be understood that most drugs have side-effects and risks. UBI has no known side-effects or risk.
This manual is dedicated to the pioneers of UBI and to their untiring search for more effective, safer, and lower-cost methods for healing the diseases that face humanity, using one of nature's own tools: ultraviolet light.
This book is largely a collection of the documented case work of Miley, Olney, Lewis and others as performed with the UBI device or Knott Hemoirradiator, applied to a variety of diseases afflicting their patients. This treatment continues to be effective today although it has not changed in application for 50 years. There have been no known negative side effects, and it continues to be a safe, painless and easy-to-apply process.
In his book Into the Light, William Campbell Douglass, M.D. (a pioneer in the
new era of UV energy medicine), states that Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation is the
life-saving breakthrough therapy of the age. The secondary title of Dr.
Douglass' book is Tomorrow's Medicine Today; we concur, and hopefully this
manual can serve as a guide to continue this breakthrough well into the next century.
END OF INTRODUCTION TO THE BOOK.
If you are interested in this treatment modality, please call the office of Dr. Schleicher. They will be able to give you the address of a clinic or doctor nearest to you, where you can obtain the treatment.
Is UBI an 'alternative' treatment? It is neither unapproved, nor actively suppressed. A medical doctor is free to practice it. However, it is very little known, and almost never used against infectious diseases, except by a handful of practitioners. If an excellent medical modality becomes neglected and forgotten by the medical community, does that place it in the category of alternative medicine? Hardly. Maybe we should create a new category: neglected medicine, or not sufficiently profitable medicine.
So, if you have an infectious disease, and you are not satisfied with the answers you get from your doctor, it may help to talk to other doctors. Don't let one person's ignorance prevent you from recovering your health."
