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:
- Reduces inflammation
- Promotes healthy circulation and clotting
- Increases production of red blood cells
- Improves oxygen use in the blood
- 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 through blood mixed with saline solution.
When ozone/blood/saline is introduced and mixes with the blood, it is 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.
