UV Light Therapy Houston
What is UV Light Therapy?
UV Light Therapy was actually used extensively in the 1940’s and 50’s prior to the advent of antibiotics. Back then the only method for administering UV light to the blood was by drawing the blood from the body, running it through a device, and then delivering the treated blood back into the body. Now, with the latest in technology we are able to deliver UV technology directly to the bloodstream through a specialized IV catheter.
This new method also allows for nearly 100% of a patient’s blood to receive a therapeutic dose of light, maximizing the health benefits! Treatments are 60 minutes in length and are divided into two thirty-minute phases. Each phase administers a specific combination of light wavelengths to maximize the desired clinical effect. The first segment consists of both UVA and red light. The second segment emits both red and green light.
This treatment is greatly needed to combat the super-strains of bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics that the over-use of antibiotics has produced. Unlike antibiotic use, which can cause severe damage to your gut health, there are no side effects with UV Light Therapy.
The Benefits of UV Light Therapy are Extensive and Include:
- Destroys yeast, fungal, viral & bacterial growth

- Autoimmune illnesses
- Candida (yeast) overgrowth
- Acute infections
- Adrenal / Chronic Fatigue
- Multiple Sclerosis
The UV Light Therapy Process
The process begins the same as a standard IV, with the insertion of an IV catheter. A special adapter is then attached to the catheter. This adapter will allow for the administration of both saline fluid and the UV light. The UV Light is delivered through a special fiber optic cable that sends the therapeutic light directly into the IV catheter and into the bloodstream.
Treatments are 60 minutes in length and are divided into two thirty-minute phases. Each phase administers a specific combination of light wavelengths to maximize the desired clinical effect. the first wave consists of both UVA and red light. The second wave emits both red and green light.
