As you can see, I’m hooked up to an IV…
You probably want to know what’s going on.
I’ll explain in the video, so take a look (I also have a brief written explanation below.)
Take a look now…
Your question of the day: Have you ever done an IV therapy? What was it?
What The Heck is UBI (Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Therapy)?
Ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy is administered by a device called the Knott Hemo-irradiator — that’s what I’m hooked up to.
My understanding of this treatment is fairly simple.
You are given an IV by a nurse who then takes out about a beer bottle worth of blood. Afterwords, the blood is dripped back into your arm, but it is run through the Knott Hemo-irradiator machine to disinfect your blood. UV light is very effective at killing bacteria — many bacteria killing water systems use UV rays.
Once the blood is back into your system, it does two things…
1. The blood still has some of the UV light energy that it can distribute back into the body — I don’t know how this happens, but apparently it does.
2. The dead bacteria form a blueprint for the immune system and allows it to examine the infectious agents to help it make antibodies — I get this one loud and clear.
So as you can tell, this is all about boosting the immune system and helping it clear the body of infection.
I’ve had the therapy now twice and the first time I didn’t feel much of anything afterwords. But this time was different.
During the therapy, I felt lightheaded, probably since they took out a nice amount of my blood (about 1/20th of it.) But afterwords, I felt fatigued. Apparently this is 100% normal.
Today, a day after I write this, I feel great, but again, that could be because I generally feel great these days — it may or may not be a result of the therapy.
My main interest in this therapy is for the possible benefits it may have for Lyme disease.
As you may know, I was infected with the Lyme bacteria when I lived back in Connecticut. I caught the infection early, and after a quick and painful 3-4 days, I haven’t had any more symptoms at all. But, my friend and colleague Dr. Williams — who is an infectious disease expert in his own right — tells me that you never fully get rid of everything.
So my focus is to continue to boost the immune system to give my body the help it needs to make sure the latent bacteria and viruses in my system never act up enough for me to have symptoms — or full blown illness — again.
Tomorrow, Dr. Monhollon talks about hydrogen peroxide therapy by I.V. That’s the treatment I did after the UBI which you see in this video.
