Intravascular UV Light Phototherapy Treatment
From September 2016 onwards, SHA Wellness Clinic will be the first wellness clinic in Spain to offer the Intravascular UV Light Phototherapy treatment, integrated in the Ozone Therapy Unit managed by Dr. Rosario García, Ozone and Serum therapy specialist.
This new technique is an innovative system (LED) that applies light in different intravascularly longitudinal waves . It is carried out with an optic filament that accesses the vascular system through a standard catheter, providing a direct intravenous treatment.
The procedure of the UV light is a treatment based on clinical investigations carried out in the last few decades. The activation of our receptors (such as flavoproteins, porphyrins, hemoglobin and flavines) causes them to become excited when they are exposed to the light, whilst also activating the biochemical pathways directly or indirectly related to them.
Each longitudinal wave activates a specific biochemical pathway which has the following therapeutic effects:
- Stimulates the immune system
- Debilitates and deactivates de pathogenic agents present in the blood
- Reduces inflammation
- Increases natural energy levels
- Improves blood circulation
The treatment lasts approximately one hour, where 3 longitudinal waves are emitted: UVA, red light and green light which will treat approximately 100% of the patient’s blood. Normally, 3 to 5 sessions are recommended and they can be done on a daily basis. There is usually a noticeable improvement after a few treatments, but it also depends on the severity of each patient’s state of health.
According to Dr. García, the benefits of this treatment are “an increase in energy, strength and resistance, an improvement in the general performance, as well as sleep behavior and a positive effect on general mood, allowing for a reduction in the consumption of medications.
Additionally, Dr. García also assures that the Intravascular UV Light Phototherapy treatment “optimizes the recovery of the damage caused in the organism during the summer. It’s proven to be effective and stands out for having rapid and long lasting effects”.
This treatment decreases the recuperation time following surgical procedures as it has an immediate reduction in inflammation, minimizing the pain and accelerating the wound healing process. It can also combat:
- Chronic illnesses
- Neurological disorders
- Inflammatory disorders
