Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Therapy

I would like to know whether ultraviolet blood irradiation can be used as a preventive therapy. Would it be of any help for a normal healthy person to undergo UVBI therapy to prevent diseases and help them obtain optimum health? What are the effects of this therapy on a kidney transplant recipient who is also Hepatitis B positive? Will the Hep B virus be completely eradicated?

Prevention with UVBI (photoluminescence) is a good idea if you are suspecting something to come up at a certain time. For example, if you always seem to have influenza in January, then weekly UVBI beginning at the end of December would make sense. As to use in kidney transplant, I know of no contraindication to that and as with all infective agents, it would help suppress the Hep B virus. As to complete eradication, it depends on the previously existing condition of the immune system. If it does not eradicate with UVBI alone, the next step would be a detox program to help bring back the immune system.
