Safety of UBT


UBI was the original term for UBT.


In over 75 years and millions of successful UBT treatments, there have been no significant adverse side effects.

UBI treatments appear to lend higher specificity than many chemotherapies (Pharma drugs) aimed at the same applications, since to attain their effects such chemotherapies must deviate from the ideal purity of energy-bearing molecules such as glucose and ATP.

In a study of 2,380 sessions only 1.3% had complications and those were minor: hematomas at the IV site, coagulation in the tubing, shivering, dizziness and nosebleeds. Marochkov, A.B., V.A. Doronin, and N.N. Kravtsov (1990). “Complications in the Ultraviolet Irradiation of the Blood” [Russian], Anesteziologiia 1 Reanimatologiia 4:55-56.

In over 10,000 UBI treatments only 6 had any adverse reaction and those were minor reactions including headache, temporary fever, chills and moderate gastrocnemium spasm.

UBI has negligible side effects because of its high specificity. In other words, UBI therapy is not only safe: it is safer than competing chemotherapies (pharma drugs) throughout a wide band of therapeutic action. Dillion Kenneth J.

Researchers had treated 726 patients with various diseases for a total of 3,500 sessions. Significant healing was found in 84% of the cases with no complications. Ganelina, I.E. and K.A.
