But then again you have the chances of getting too much sunlight. So if the sun can cure these common ailments, why not use something similar without the danger? Something that helps your whole body. What runs through every origin of your body? Yes, BLOOD. This isn’t anything new though.
Ultraviolet (UV) light has been known for decades to have a sterilizing effect. Almost all bacteria can be killed or weakened by UV rays. In the late 1800s a man by the name of Niels Finsen had shown convincing evidence that skin infections could be treated successfully with intensive light therapy (UV blood irradiation). He received a Nobel prize for his work and findings in 1903. By the early 1940s, light therapy was being used in several American hospitals.
In the late 1940s numerous reports were being made about the high efficacy for infection and complete safety of light therapy. Sadly, about the same time, antibiotics made its debut, and the reports suddenly ceased. These antibiotics soon became the treatment of choice and light therapy got pushed into the shadows.
The most appropriate name for this light therapy that came to be is photoluminescence. “Photo” refers to light and “luminescence” refers to the emission of light. Today this remarkable treatment is called Biphotonic.
