UV Light Therapy uses therapeutic ultraviolet light wavelengths which are administered into the bloodstream through an IV.
Ultraviolet light emerged in the spotlight in 1903 when Niels Finsen won the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his use of UV light in the treatment of diseases. Since then, ultraviolet light has been widely used for sterilization of hospitals and water and improving air quality in homes.
UV Light Therapy uses different wavelengths of light to trigger distinct biological mechanisms within the body which may aid in improving circulation and strengthening the immune system. Light therapy may also help improve a wide range of medical conditions including pain, chronic inflammation, upper respiratory infections, chronic Lyme disease, Epstein-Barr Virus(EBV) and more. Along with UV Light Therapy, IV vitamins and fluids may be administered to help with hydration and wellness.
Patients sit comfortably while they receive their 60-minute UV Light Therapy treatment. There is no blood removed during this procedure and no use of blood thinners or additives.
