Photoluminescence involves exposing blood to ultraviolet light to promote healing. This is why the procedure was originally called Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation.
One of the first pioneers of Photoluminescence , Emmett K. Knott, irradiated the blood of his first human subject in 1928. Dr. Virgil K. Hancock and Mr. Knott published the first article on the therapeutic efficacy of phototherapy in June of 1934. By June of 1942 they had treated 6,520 patients with ultraviolet therapy. Not only had the treatment worked nearly every time in getting rid of infections and toxicity, it had done so in the complete absence of any harmful effects.
As indicated above, Photoluminescence is extremely safe. It is contraindicted only in people with the diagnosis of Porphyria, hereditary metabolic disorders such as phenylketonuria, exeroderma pigmentosum, acute photodermatitis, and a hypersensitivity to sunlight or other forms of ultraviolet light.
Photoluminesence has been shown to have these effects:
The blood that is exposed to the ultraviolet light continues to emit secondary radiation. Some scientists believe this may be the way ultraviolet blood irradiation has cumulative effects. Each treatment builds on and enchances the effects of previous treatments.
The procedure is pictured below. A catherer is initially placed (similar to a blood draw) in one of the veins around the elbow. The blood is removed and travels through a small glass chamber, called a cuvette, where it is subjected twice to ultraviolet light and returned to the blood stream. Generally, 1.5cc of blood per pound of body weight is withdrawn up to a maximum of 250cc.
Currently, insurance companies do not recognize natural medicine techniques like photoluminescence and thus it is not covered by insurance.
This varies with the individual, but many people begin to feel improvements in their condition after just a few treatments. Depending on the severity of the condition, some patients may need ten or more treatments. For conditions not as severe, three to five treatments are normally required. While treatments can be given once every 24 hours, most patients receive one to three treatments per week.
