Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) is one of the best options for boosting the immune system. The immune system is one of the most important elements within our bodies because it protects us from diseases, viruses, and other illnesses. Having a strong immune system leads to living a healthy life because you are less prone to develop dangerous entities that could enter your body.

Improving your immune system is an essential step for optimizing your health and wellness, but there is no need to go out of your way to find vaccines, injections, and medications. 

BPT and UBI both treat the body by exposing the patient’s blood to ultraviolet light. This results in killing viruses and bacteria in addition to activating and energizing the immune system. UBI therapy helps patients to overcome illnesses and take control of their lives.

What Is Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation?

Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) is a medical procedure that has been used since the 1940s, but not many people know about it. It’s a rather revolutionary treatment as ultraviolet light is used to heal the body and treat diseases. No outside medications are required for people to experience an improvement in their health with UBIs.

UBIs have an 80% success rate as a majority of patients have seen an improvement in their overall health. While the effectiveness of treatment is determined by underlying health conditions or diseases, most people will experience positive benefits if the advice from medical professionals is followed.

If UBIs are so effective, why isn’t it more common knowledge? Although UBI therapy has been around for the past 80 years, UBIs have slipped under the radar until a couple of years ago.

In 2016, a scientific study revealed that the decline of UBI resulted from the development of antibiotics. Although UBI therapy was continually being practice in European countries like Russia and Germany, Western countries like the United States viewed the holistic treatment of UBI as controversial.

Further research is being constructed on UBIs because the medical industry did not focus on ultraviolet blood irradiation for basically the last 50 years or so. This is due to medical practices and doctors primarily focusing on medicated treatments so UBI was unfortunately placed on the back-burner until recent years. 

Who Can Recieve

A hesitation most people have when approaching an unfamiliar form of treatment is the question: Is it right for me? The good thing about UBIs are that they are appropriate for anyone with a pulse.

As long as a person has blood flowing through their body and pumping to their heart, then they can receive UBI treatment. Essentially, ultraviolet irradiation of the blood has the potential to be the right treatment for anyone if they wish to optimize their health and begin to heal. 

Unlike other treatments, which can be more selective of their patients, UBI therapy can be for every person. For example, some people may choose to have a specific medicated treatment but are unable to receive treatment because they don’t “qualify.”

Possible UBI Side Effects

Each patient responds to UBI therapy differently and the likelihood of experiencing side effects usually comes down to the detox response of the patient. When side effects of UBIs occur, they can last only for a few hours before disappearing. Patients typically do not experience long-term discomfort from UBI therapy.

After UBI therapy a person could have fatigue, mild nausea, headaches, or flushing but these symptoms are not increasingly common. In 1948, Dr. E. H. Block at Olney Clinic observed the effects of blood sludge from 32 UBI patients. Blood sludge can result in a blood flow increase or a decrease of charge aggregates.

The most known side effects of UBI therapy come from the biochemical and physiological effects of ultraviolet energy. A study on UBI clinical application from 1933–1997 explained the similarities between UBI and ultraviolet ray toxins by discussing bacterial infections. Essentially, bacterial infections are closely related to the bactericidal action of ultraviolet.

With all of this being said, some patients do not experience any side effects or their reactions are minor. At the most, effects will make people feel lethargic for a day or two before they return to their usual activities.

What Conditions Can UBI Treat?

There is a wide variety of conditions, diseases, and illnesses that can be treated with UBI therapy. Research continues to find new benefits to add to the list of many treatable conditions.

Whether the patient is suffering from poor circulation, hepatitis, non-healing wounds, lupus, or fibromyalgia they can experience relief through UBI therapy. Chronic conditions like asthma or allergies and temporary conditions like staph or respiratory infections can also improve with the help of UBIs.

Lupus and Lyme Disease are also known conditions that can be relieved with ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy. For those who have experienced failed treatments or don’t respond well to medications, UBI therapy is a beneficial option.

How Do

Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation


During UBI therapy, ultraviolet light is used to boost the immune system, heal the body, and decrease inflammation. Red blood cells are energized with UV light, which causes a healing response to be activated within the body.

Only a small amount of blood is needed for UBI therapy, withdrawn similarly to donating blood. The patient’s blood is placed in a medical ultraviolet device, where it circulates for the blood cells to be exposed to UV light. Within the device, the blood receives treatment before it’s returned back into the patient’s veins through a closed loop system.

One UBI session usually takes less than an hour and enhances the body’s ability to produce natural antibodies. These antibodies help to activate the immune system to work against bacteria and viruses, even the ones that are considered antibiotic-resistant.

A patient can receive UBI and Ozone Therapy at the same time because ozone is within UBI treatment. How it works is that once the blood is drawn from the patient, ozone is added to maximize the healing effect. Essentially, the added ozone is proving oxygen to the patient’s red blood cells which in turn gives oxygen to the rest of the body.

Benefits of UBI Therapy

In addition to UBI therapy strengthening the immune system and improving overall health, UBIs have proved to be beneficial in other ways. The benefits received vary from patient to patient as each person responds to UBI differently. However, all UBI benefits promote a healthy life as the body’s functionality improves.

The body’s ability to detoxify improves with UBI while toxins are removed or inactivated. Pain caused by inflammation can be reduced as the inflammation in the body is decreased. Tissue pain can also be lessened or relieved with UBI therapy.

After UBI therapy it’s easier for the body to fight off infections and blood circulation increases. Heart health also improves as UBI causes cardiovascular protection through increased metabolism of cholesterol, uric acid, and glucose.

UBI can give patients hope for healing when other treatment options could fail. Sepsis, a life-threatening response to an infection, can potentially be treated with UBI. Good candidates for UBI are also patients with SIBO, candida, any autoimmune disease, or any chronic condition. As research for UBI continues, each year we are learning new benefits from this therapy.


Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation therapy is one of many holistic and regenerative medicines Integrated Wellness Bountiful offers at their clinic for their patients. To guarantee their patients receive the best possible care, the first visit includes a consultation to assess their current health status and determine the most optimal approach to living well.

UBI therapy is like gaining superhuman powers, being able to fight out the villainous bacterias and viruses. Any infectious agent is killed while the immune system receives the boost it needs to heal and recover.

Patients can come to receive UBI therapy sessions up to 2 or 3 times a week as there is no harm in doing multiple treatments during one week. To find out if UBI therapy is the right option for you to achieve your health and wellness goals, you can request a consultation at our clinic.
