Ultra-Violet Blood Irradiation (UVBI): Using the power of light to kill cancer, viruses and bacteria
We have known for hundreds of years that sunlight is excellent for killing germs. As early as the 1880′s, researchers and doctors were delving into the germicidal properties of natural light. One such pioneer was Dr. Niels Finson, who began to explore the potential effects of ultraviolet light.
Nearly 50 years later Emmet Knott began to explore the medical uses of ultraviolet light – using a machine that he invented which allowed blood to be withdrawn from a patient’s arm, exposed to a specific frequency UV light and returned to the patient – he was able to cure a case of sepsis, a serious blood infection. By the early 1940′s, over 6,000 patients had been cured of various diseases.
Alternative medicine has embraced the technology of using ultraviolet light as a means to heal various diseases, including cancer. By exposing certain cells borne in the blood, be they cancer, viruses or bacteria, we can administer a precise amount of UV light to those cells using the UVBI machine invented by Knott and refined by modern technological advances.
Although the full and exact method in which this therapy works is still only roughly understood, we do know that exposure to a specific wavelength of UV rays damages the DNA of cells. If the DNA of the cell is sufficiently damaged, the cell will be unable to replicate, thereby undergoing apoptosis – programmed cell death.
The cells destroyed in this manner then act as a sort of vaccine, teaching the immune system to look for other cells like the ones damaged by UV light and ultimately destroying them.
