UBI And Ozone, A Natural Alternative To Conventional Antibiotics

By design, our immune system is our first line of defense against pathogens. But our immune system is under attack in our modern world. Poor diet and nutritional deficiencies, lack of sleep, and stress which releases excess cortisol, are common ways the immune response is blunted, creating the recipe for pathogens to thrive.

The discovery of penicillin in 1928 opened the door to the era of modern antibiotics saving millions of lives and therefore establishing the use of the synthetic medicine as the staple for treating infectious diseases. Penicillin saved countless lives in WWII, for example.

Unfortunately, because antibiotics worked so well, they were over prescribed and often misused. Additionally, antibiotics have been added to commercial livestock feed. Today we have a legacy of antibiotic-resistant microorganisms leading to a “superbug crisis.”

Superbugs like MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), C. diff (Clostridioides difficile), drug resistant salmonella, and VRSA (vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) have been populating the list of pathogens that are no longer susceptible to regular antibiotic therapy. Newer antibiotics to treat these superbugs don’t exist because pharmaceutical companies lack the economic incentive for making them.

Although in severe cases, antibiotics can be a life saver, they also come at a price. Broad spectrum antibiotics launch an indiscriminate attack on both the “bad” and “good” bacteria found in the intestines, lungs, and bladder. Some 70% of our immune system resides in the gut so killing off the “good” gut bacteria leaves the body’s defenses severely compromised. Now it is easier to acquire secondary and often more resistant infections. Many people report extreme fatigue during and after a round of antibiotics, unsurprisingly, since antibiotic treatment is a form of chemotherapy.

Thus there is increasing interest in “old school” methods that got forgotten in the excitement when new antibiotic drugs became available. Such is the case of UBI (ultraviolet blood irradiation) and ozone therapy. These two therapies are often used in combination and can, in many cases, replace the use of conventional antibiotics. They prompt a healing response by supporting the body’s intrinsic repair mechanisms while preserving the integrity of the intestinal flora and the bacterial balance of the whole body.

Ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI)

Ultraviolet blood irradiation (also known as photoluminescence, hemo-irradiation, photodynamic therapy, and oxidative phototherapy), was first developed to combat polio. It was also extensively used in the 1930s and 1940s to treat medical conditions including pneumonia, tuberculosis, and cancer.

UBI is used for a number of conditions today, ranging from specific issues like psoriasis and bladder infections, to more chronic infections and auto-immune diseases. UBI is a safe, proven medical procedure that kills bacteria and viruses, boosts the immune system, and rejuvenates the blood. It uses ultraviolet energy to increase the oxygen level in the blood, and inactivate microbes and toxins. The vasodilation and micro-circulation created provides for a new, supercharged immune response and an improvement of overall health.

For this procedure, blood is withdrawn from the patient’s arm and run through a sterile device in which the blood is exposed to concentrated, sanitizing ultraviolet rays. As blood is returned to the patient’s vein, the effects begin immediately. The number of sessions needed may vary and depend on individual patient health, duration of the illness, and severity of disease being treated. For professional athletes, this can make for significantly better recovery times after workouts.

Ozone therapy

Ozone is a highly active form of oxygen that supercharges the body’s own healing abilities.

Normal oxygen molecules, O2, the kind we need to breathe, have two oxygen atoms. Ozone molecules, O3, have three oxygen atoms. That extra atom increases the amount of oxygen circulating in the body and is the source of its medical properties. Ozone is found naturally in the body – our white blood cells make it as part of the immune response.

Pure medical grade ozone, when it is used according to the established medical guidelines, has a safety record that is unparalleled. Ozone has been shown to stimulate local stem cells and repair tissues, including cartilage. Ozone also increases antioxidant protection more than any just about any other therapy, including intravenous vitamin C. This therapy is useful for disinfecting the blood and treating chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Lyme disease, chronic hepatitis, herpes, macular degeneration, and autoimmune disorders. Some of our professional athlete patients use ozone weekly because it speeds recovery and improves their stamina during workouts. For those with challenging chronic conditions, we can use a “multi-pass” ozone treatment which is essentially a higher dose and this works synergistically with UBI.

Ozone therapy is most often administered intravenously. However, ozone also can be applied in the treatment of external wounds to treat infection, or in an enclosed space “gas bath” for the inactivation of bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

Both UBI and ozone activate oxygen molecules, leading to a number of positive biochemical changes at the cellular level. An environment is created that supports the cells’ natural ability to respond to threats such as bacteria and viruses. These two therapies in combination work synergistically to boost your immune system and help you attain a state of homeostasis (balance) necessary to help your body heal naturally. Give UBI and ozone a try and see the results for yourself.
