Healing Affects of UBI

1) Broad Spectrum of medical healing effects (general strengthening, desensitizing, stimulating and anti-inflammatory) in various illnesses

2) Stimulation of factors of non-specific defense and immunity

3) Anti-hypoxic, vasodilatory effects and improvements of the rheological  (flow, structure, etc.) of the blood and the microcirculation

4) Activation of metabolic processes and improvement of their regulation

5) Stimulation of hematopoiesis (making blood cells)  and regeneration

6) Rapid positive changes in  cell and blood plasma

7) Normalizing effect on those processes and functions that are below normal and of those that are high.  I.e. auto-immune attack and low immune response

Oxygenation affect

Within minutes venous oxygen level rise and can remain higher for weeks after the treatments.  Cyanosis (blue coloration)  tends to clear up rapidly, metabolism improves, lower extremity circulation improves.

Miley (1997) p 20; G.M. Miley, “The Ultraviolet Irradiation of Auto-transfused Human Blood:  Studies in Oxygen Absorption Values,: American Journal of Medicine Sciences, June 1939, p 873

Improvement of the ability of the tissues to extract oxygen.  Feet may feel warm even though arteries remain occluded because of tissue oxygen extraction.

Positive effects on Blood Components

Platelets benefit from UBI.  When deformed as a result of disease, UBI seems to reshape them into a normal pattern.  Serotonin in platelets give off a faint luminescence following UBI while platelets themselves can give off a strong luminescence in plasma.   They also develop greater electrophoretic mobility.

I.N. Piksin et al,, “UBI in Surgery [Russina],”  Khirurgiia (1990), No 11 pp 100-4.

Red blood cells register chances in their membranes including expression of antigens.  There is improvement in rheological (flow) characteristics and a drop in blood viscosity.   Redblood cell aggregation is greatly reduced as is their deformation.  Similar changes take place in platelets. 

UBI increases the activation of circulating IgM (by 2-16 times), IgG (by 2-4 times) and complement (by 2-4 times), i.e. it rapidly activates these factors of nonspecific immune defense.

UBI boosts the antioxidative capacity of the blood by activating peroxidase.  This activatioin has reached 40-50% above normal levels.

Safety of UBI

UBI treatments appear to lend higher specificity than many chemotherapies (pharma drugs) aimed at the same applications, since to attain their effects such chemotherapies must deviate from the ideal purity of energy-bearing molecules such as glucose and ATP.

Study of 2,380 sessions only 1.3% had complications and those were minor, hematomas at the IV site, coagulation in the tubing, shivering, dizziness and nosebleeds.

Marochkov, A. B.., V.A. Doronin, and N.N. Kravtsov (1990). "Complications in the Ultraviolet Irradiation of the Blood [Russian]," Anesteziologiia I Reanimatologiia 4:55-56

In over 10,000 UBI treatments only 6 had any adverse reaction and those were minor reactions including headache, temporary fever, chill and moderate gastrocnemium spasm.

UBI suggests negligible side effects because of its high specificity. In other words, UBI therapy is not only safe:  it is safer than competing chemotherapies (pharma drugs) throughout a wide band of therapeutic action

Infections and other issues

Streptococcal infections 

Strep Infections have been successfully treated. Strep throat, rheumatic fever, scarlet fever, acute tonsillitis, acute otitis media and erisypelas all are very responsive to UBI treatment.

Staphylococcus albus and Staphylococcus aureus

For those using just UBI as a treatment 8 out of 9 ended in complete recovery. The one case also had bladder carcinoma. Conclusion that UBI as a monotherapy was highly effective against staphylococcemia.

Severe Pneumonia in Infants and children

Another study of 56 children under 1 with acute pneumonia as compared to 45 in a control with standard drugs showed temperature and rapid heartbeats dropped faster, peripheral blood and phagocytosis showed more improvements and hospital stays were reduced by 24% compared to controls.

Shamsiev, al., “The efficacy of UBI in Combination Therapy of Acute Pneumonias in Young Children [Russian],” Pediatriia 9 1990), No 11, p 112

Other infections

Clinical trials of UBI successful against pneumococcus, staphylococcus, streptococcus and a mixture of other microbes. IN a 182 patient study with 90 as a control. The treatment group recovered more rapidly (by 5-7 days) had fewer complications and experienced a reduction in fibrogen to normal activation of anticoagulatory and fibinolytic elements. Initial Anemia – those treated saw a 30.7% increase in erythrocytes.

A study of 222 hospitalized patients with destructive tuberculosis of the lungs were divided in two groups.  The first group included UBI therapy, the second did not.  Within 3 months the 1st group was 100% disease free while only 58.8% of the group with antibiotics only was disease free. After 3 months 89.5% of the first group saw the destructive results of the disease disappear and only 3.2% of the second group.

Viral Infections

Influenza, Respiratory tract infections, Herpes zoster, Herpes Simplex, Mumps, Measles, Mononucleosis (EBV) and plantar warts

Reports of Miley and others have shown that UBI successfully treats influenza, respiratory tract infections, Herpes zoster, Herpes Simplex, Mumps, measles, mononucleosis (EBV) and plantar warts.  In the study below researchers listed 79 consecutive cases of virus infections treated with UBI with patients from early stages to moribund – 78% of the patients recovered including 8 of the 9 that were apparently moribund (near death)

Miley, G. P., Christensen, J.A. (1948), "Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Therapy in Acute Virus and Virus-Like Infections." Review of Gastroenterology 15:4:271-83

Study comparing LBI with standard drugs in patients with acute pneumonia fournd that with LBI that fever and intoxication disappeared an average of 4.8 days sooner and that ausculatory symptoms disappeared 3.29 days sooner.  LBI group had much less lung damage. Patients had virtually no perivascular suppuration or erythrocyte aggregation.

43 cases treated, three with severe chronic hepatitis – all successfully treated and with a follow up of 4.5-6 yrs.  Still healthy.  Comment by R.C. Onley M.D.  .”… the results of (UBI) are considered significant and noteworthy”

R.C. Olney et al “Treatment of Viral Hepatitis with the Knott Technique of Blood Irradiation,” American Journal of Surgery 90 (1955) pp.402-9

Another study from 1994 had three groups with chronic active hepatitis and cirrhosis of the liver patients studied.  Group 1 (20 patients) standard drugs  -  Group 1 – 12 of 20 had good results 2 died,Group 2 – (16 patients) LBI treatment -   Group 2  - 13 of 16 had good resultsGroup 3 – (10 patients) LBI infusion treatment.  Group 3  - 10 of 10 had good results.  Suspected improved microcirculation in the liver was a factor and accounted for the superior outcomes.

Acute Rheumatic Heart Disease

Also look at the 1949 Time Magazine report where they reported success on children with acute rheumatic heart disease in 22 consecutive cases. All of the children, aged three to 13, were acutely ill with inflamed heart muscles (one result of the disease), All patients left the hospital without sign of rheumatic heart disease except mechanical damage that had already taken place in the heart; 20 have returned to normal activity; one died, from another disease, and one "gained immeasurably."

Microcirculation improvement

Also, marked improvement in rheological properties of the blood. Viscosity dropped 30%, platelet aggregation by 25%, fribogen level by 20% leading to a 35% reduction in general peripheral resistance and normalization of diastolic pressure. Stabilization of hemodynamic levels and more rapid resolution of the heath attack. This maintained for the 6 months of follow-up.

Severe Ischemic Heart Disease in 145 males.  Patient received5-10 treatments of UBI along with standard drugs. 137 had favorable response to UBI and overall condition improved. Fewer analgesics or nitroglycerin tablets. 92 had fewer incidents of stenocardia and could walk 1,000 meters per day.  The other 45 saw moderate improvement.  Researchers felt UBI regularized biochemical substances and function in the body.

45 Unstable stenocardia patients – 26 with post-infarction cardiosclerosis against a control group.  5-7 LBI treatments later showed all 45 underwent improvement in general condition, less weakness, headaches and insomnia, reduced nitrates and other listed benefits.

Raynaud’s Syndrome

28 patients received LBI with 30 patients as controls receiving standard treatment
LBI/ UBI, there was 43% significant improvement, 50 % benefited, 7% no response

Standard drug therpy 33% significant improvement, 16.7% benefited, 50% no response, and 1 worsened

Double Blind Study of 50 patients in Fontaine Stage II of arterial disease.

Group 1 - 16 weeks of drug therapy distance walking improved 160%

Group 2 – 4-6 weeks inpatient therapy increased 100%

Group 3 – 6 day placebo with UBI (no light)  90% improvement

Group 4 – 6 day real UBI treatment -  360% improvement

Results confirmed in 18 subsequent trials and reports. Smoking and diabetes patients were more difficult and required more UBI treatments.

Hypertension – High Blood Pressure
73 Stage 2 hypertensive patients were divided into groups.  Group 1 – 24 received standard drug therapy Group 2 - received standard drug therapy plus LBI.  Group 2 had severe hypertension that was resistant to drugs.

In Group 2 Blood pressure dropped 24%, they had less headaches and dizziness and less ache in the heart area.  Drug levels were also dropped by 40%.  Remission lasted 4-8 months whereas Group1 patients did not surpass 4 months.  Hypertension reduction occurred 6-10 days after treatment.
