UBI therapy. Have you heard about it? Do you know a little and want to know more? Do you know nothing at all? Either way, this blog is for you. We’ll present you with five things to know about UBI therapy.
1. UBI stands for Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation
Now, those are a lot of science words and you may not recognize them all or understand their purpose. Well, blood you probably know. So let’s skip that. Ultraviolet is part of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, situated in the area where the wavelengths are shorter than the violet end of the visible spectrum and longer than that of the X-ray end.
2. Ultraviolet is present in sunlight
You might be wondering why ultraviolet is used in UBI therapy. It’s because it has similar cleansing effects to sunlight, in its ability to rid things of bacteria and viruses. That may prove to be beneficial to your blood.
3. UBI therapy is considered safe and effective
Multiple studies have shown the treatment to not have any recorded negative side effects. It is also seen as potentially killing bacteria and viruses in a patient’s bloodstream, rejuvenating their blood, and boosting their immunity.
4. UBI therapy is simple and easy
Because the science behind the treatment is centuries old, it’s not all that complicated. The patient’s blood is drawn, sent through a machine that hits it with ultraviolet light (cleansing the blood with its UV rays), and then returned to the body. Most patients who receive the therapy find it to be not too uncomfortable. You’ll likely feel the first pinch when the needle is inserted into the vein to draw the blood but the treatment itself requires little else from you. And when the procedure is over, you can return to your normal activities. There is no downtime and many patients report feeling more rejuvenated after.
5. UBI has a somewhat related treatment called Ozone therapy
Ozone therapy is another blood based treatment a patient can opt for. In this therapy, instead of the blood being cleansed by UV light, it is boosted with pure and rich ozone.
There are two types of Ozone therapy. Major Autohemotherapy is one. Here you get highly purified ozone entered into your blood and this raises the oxygen levels in the body. The other type of Ozone therapy is called 10 Pass Hyperbaric Ozone Therapy. In this version, the patient’s blood is drawn, infused with ozone, and then is returned. The “10 Pass” part of the name refers to the number of times it is recommended that a patient receive treatment to get the full benefits. It is recommended, as well, that continued maintenance treatments are received afterwards so that benefits will also continue. (All subject to change based on the patient’s condition coming in. Discussion with a trained professional ahead of time will help to decide the best course of action.)
So there you have it. Five things to know about UBI therapy. Both UBI therapy and Ozone therapy can be received at the Los Angeles-based RWA Center in Beverly Hills. You could opt for one or the other or get both in a package. Call us at (310) 407-0542 and make an appointment so we can discuss this further.
