MANY life-threatening diseases have been discovered over the years but so have medical breakthroughs. As medicine is an ever-evolving field, more and more researchers devote themselves to finding cures that can impact millions of lives worldwide. One promising advancement is the ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) therapy through the UVLrx Station.
UBI therapy is a procedure in which blood is exposed to various wavelengths of light to treat bacterial and viral infections. Although it has been around for more than a century and even won a Nobel Prize in medicine in 1903 for the successful treatment of lupus, it employs the transfusion method which involves removing donor blood and irradiating it with ultraviolet (UV) light before transfusing it back into the patient. The UVLrx Station eliminates the complexity, cost and safety risks of the traditional method by delivering UV light directly to the blood using a standard catheter. Doing it intravenously can treat 100 percent of the volume of patient blood during the hour-long procedure as opposed to the transfusion method which treats only five percent of patient blood.
Backed by decades of clinical literature and hundreds of international clinical trials, the UVLrx™ Treatment System has been proven to stimulate the immune system, improve blood flow, reduce chronic inflammation and deactivate pathogens (bacteria, fungi, viruses, parasites) thereby enabling the patient’s white blood cells to fight infection more effectively.
The UVLrx uses three kinds of wavelengths, each of which was specifically chosen for its unique therapeutic qualities. The ultraviolet A (UVA) and red light are administered simultaneously during the first 30 minutes of the treatment. The red and green lights are administered together during the last 30 minutes. The amount of UV light delivered during the treatment is equivalent to less than a minute of direct skin exposure to sunlight. And because the therapy utilizes a simple saline drip, the patient stays hydrated all throughout and light penetration is maximized.
In the Philippines, one of the first distributors of the UVLrx station outside of the U.S. is Evolucent Technologies. To experience the simple, safe and effective UVLrx therapy, head on over to Second Opinion Medical Clinics at Kyoob Complex, Ouano Ave., North Reclamation Area, Mandaue City.
