UVB Therapy is a treatment in which a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, mixed with heparin and saline, exposed to UV light and allowed to flow back into the patient’s body. UVB Therapy has a number of benefits to the blood and immune system that can help to treat a variety of conditions. It many individuals, UVB therapy reduces inflammation, promotes healthy circulation and clotting, increases production of red blood cells, and improves oxygen use in the blood. UVB Therapy has minimal side effects, and is considered a very safe form of treatment.
Medical Ozone Therapy
Medical Ozone therapy is the practice of introducing ozone into the body. Ozone is a gas consisting of three oxygen atoms linked together. Because of its structure, it is likely to react with many different substances to produce oxygen, changing those substances when it does so. The changes produced in the body when ozone is introduced and reacts with the blood and other cells of the body have been shown to be very beneficial in treating a wide range of conditions, including infections and auto-immune diseases. Ozone has long been used for its antimicrobial properties, and promotes healthy immune system function. It also had anti-inflammatory properties, and has a positive effect on blood flow, circulation, and the uptake and use of oxygen in the body. Finally, ozone triggers the production of antioxidants, which prevent cell damage. It synergizes well with UVB therapy, and we find the use of these two therapies together to be beneficial to many of our patients.
