Ultraviolet blood irradiation (abbreviated as UBI or UBV) is an “intravenous therapy that represents a safe, non-toxic, low cost and drug-free method of treating most blood-borne viruses and it offers hope to those who suffer from viral infections and related conditions,” such as cancer.[1] Dubbed ‘the cure that time forgot’ by the American Journal of Surgery, UBI was first used in the 1940s and 1950s to treat diseases including pneumonia. Its success led it to being used extensively to treat “tuberculosis, arthritis, asthma, and even poliomyelitis."[2]


How Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Works


UBI is a multi-process medical treatment that assists the immune system and rejuvenates blood properties. Furthermore, “it has also proven to increase oxygen flow to the tissues, causing vasodilation and microcirculation,” a benefit highly regarded in cancer treatments.


UBI, as explained by the Physicians UBI Awareness Center, is a simple process that produces major, effective results. In step-by-step explanation:


blood is withdrawn from the patient’s arm using a butterfly needle, and then run through a device which exposes the blood to controlled ultraviolet rays. The patient’s blood is exposed to the UV light, where smaller bacterial and viral cells are targeted; they absorb the majority of the photonic energy. The healthy cells remain intact while the disease cells are killed and become antigenic. An “autogenous vaccine,” meaning self-generated, is thus produced. This process is formally known as “induced secondary immune reactivation,” and the end result provides a new supercharged immune response, greater oxygenation, and a balancing of your system; this enriched blood is then re-directed back into the body via the same needle.[3]


The science behind UBI is clear, exemplifying that “low and mild doses of UV kill microorganisms by damaging the DNA, while any DNA damage in host cells can be rapidly repaired by DNA repair enzymes.”2



Ultraviolet blood irradiation is extremely beneficial to patients battling cancer because it strengthens the immune system and improves overall health. In addition, UBI has multiple therapeutic benefits, which can further assist in other cancer treatments simultaneously. These benefits include:


Destruction of fungal, viral and bacterial growth

Improves circulation and decreases platelet aggregation

Improves circulation by dilating blood vessels

Improves the body’s ability to detoxify and inactivate or remove toxins

Activates cortisone-like molecules, sterols, into vitamin D

Restores normal size and movement of fat elements

Following the advent of antibiotics, UBI declined in common usage; doctors turned to prescribing pills, which could be taken out of the hospital, arguably a more minimalist approach to curing disease to multi- day hospital stays. However, due to “the increasing incidence of antibiotic resistant infections and a desire for more natural therapies, UBI is enjoying a type of rebirth” and becoming more highly requested and used in medical offices.1


What can UBI treat?


Ultraviolet blood irradiation is unique in that it “invokes photolysis of proteins,” which plays “a role in antigens, launching the appropriate immune reactions in the organism of the patient.”[4] As such, UBI is used to treat a variety of illnesses and medical conditions, some of which include:1


Viral infections



Bacterial infections

Wound infections



Furunculous and carbunculosis

Inflammatory process: thrombophlebitis, fibrositis, cholecystitis, pancreatitis

Diseases due to inadequate peripheral circulation

Varicose or diabetic ulcers

Peripheral atherosclerosis

Vascular headache

Non-healing wounds and delayed union fractures

Rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases

How does CMN utilize Ultraviolet blood irradiation?


CMN Alternative Cancer Treatment has found UBI therapy to be immensely effective in treating patients with a wide variety of illnesses – especially those who are struggling with cancer. At CMN, our physicians can safely administer this form of therapy and use it as part of our comprehensive approach to patient treatment and wellness.
