Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Therapy (UBI)

Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Therapy has been shown to have a positive effect on over 60 diseases including respiratory problems, viral and bacterial infections, circulatory conditions and general inflammation. Dr. Auburn has seen firsthand the significant results of this treatment and now it is available at the NHIC!

What are the benefits on UBI?   

Benefits of UBI Therapy include increased blood oxygen level and white blood cell activity. This response is partly responsible for why the therapy can be effective in treating both viral and bacterial infections. Additionally, UBI also creates balance in the body's alkalinity, activates steroid hormones, accelerates the lymphatic system and positively stimulates the autonomic nervous system and immune system.

What is the procedure?

A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, much like donating blood. All of the blood is combined with saline, circulated through a machine exposing it to ultraviolet light and returned to the patient in a sterile, closed-loop system. Bacterial and viral cells absorb about five times as much photonic energy as their healthy counterparts and are killed off while healthy cells remain intact and the blood gains oxygen. When the blood is reintroduced containing the weakened or dead pathogen, the body can react similarly to the way it understands a vaccine. Immune response increases against the specific virus or bacteria that was in the blood, and we see accelerated improvement in the patient’s symptoms and health.

How many treatments do I need?

The amount of treatment needed is determined by variables such as the state of health of the patient's immune system, length of time the patient has been ill, and the severity of the disease being treated. Acute infectious situations typically will be treated with one treatment daily or every other day until improved or resolved.  Chronic situations are treated on variable schedule, but a typical pattern of treatment would be one treatment two times per week for three weeks, and then one treatment weekly for four weeks.

Receiving orders for your first treatment is easy. If you are already a patient, call our office at 616-301-0808 and ask to speak with Heather, our IV Director. She can request orders on your behalf and find out if you need to be seen by a physician. For other questions about UBI, feel free to contact us.

Patient Testimonial

I came into Dr. Auburn’s office with a severe upper respiratory problem. I saw Linda, who was very thorough and supportive. She recommended five UBI treatments while other tests were coming in. After I had the first UBI, I noticed a beginning reduction in symptoms within 24 hours. I had the other UBIs over the course of treatment and was able to notice an increased sense of well-being and help with symptoms. Staff was very knowledgeable, answered all my questions easily and made the experience supportive and painless. I got better and felt cared about in the process. Great experience!
