ILBI Procedure - Intravenous Laser Blood Irradiation
Since 60-s of XX century, when the laser - a monochrome polarized light with a small low beam divergence - was first discovered, all the studies on its health properties have just confirmed the positive therapeutic potential of laser irradiation. In Ukraine, the laser health-promoting effects were first brought into use more than 30 years ago, and the creation of high-tech medical equipment made it possible to use laser in integrated methods of treatment and prevention of complex general and local disorders. Modern technologies allow making the irradiation procedure maximally comfortable and effective.
ILBI: Mechanism of Curative Action
Today, the laser therapy has a leading role in medicine due to not only the ease of use and multiple possibilities. Continuous experience shows that low-intensity laser irradiation of LLLT is capable of curing many pathological bodily disorders without causing any side effects. Besides, it is well tolerated, may be successfully combined with other therapies and enhances the drug exposure.
Despite the fact that ILBI is an invasive therapeutic method, it is important to comprehend that no foreign substances are injected into the blood during this procedure. Intravenous irradiation contributes to the direct effect of light on the blood without any loss of radiated power, which provides a stronger effect as compared to the non-invasive methods. When the laser radiation acts on a biological blood substrate, there gradually occurs the chain of photophysical, photochemical and photobiological reactions, which reinforce the system of self-regulation and gently corrects the disruption of homeostasis - the patients feel improvement of their overall physiological condition. Regulation of internal processes is occurring at the following levels:
- spatial structure of blood;
- composition of the blood and its properties;
- response of organs and tissues.
All changes resulting from the use of ILBI are therapeutic since they possess analgesic properties, reduce inflammation, stimulate the immune system, reduce the risk of allergies, lower cholesterol and blood acidity, calm the nervous system, remove spasms in lungs, blood vessels, bile passages. Over a long time after a single ILBI procedure, the patient’s follow-up reveals the varying degrees of such effects:
- blood improvement by all indicators, including circulation;
- improvement of antioxidant activity of blood;
- stimulation of red blood cells formation;
- increase in activity of lymphocytes;
- increase in resistance to non-specific factors;
- vascular distention and microcirculation improvement;
- normalization of tissue metabolism;
- stimulation of intracellular DNA repair systems;
- normalization of metabolic processes;
- stabilization of the energy balance;
- stimulation of regeneration processes.
The mechanism of ILBI action proves once again that the blood condition plays a major role in awakening the ability of an organism to regulate itself. Therefore, the mere improvement in the quality of blood is already capable of preventing recurrences and pathology in various organs. The internal forces of a particular patient are directing the energy of light through the bloodstream where it is needed the most, so this procedure cannot do any harm.
ILBI: Indications and Contraindications
Since ILBI enables to affect blood most steadily with the maximum absorption of the required dose, the exposure time of up to 20 minutes for adults and up to 7 minutes for children is enough to provide a therapeutic effect for one session. Depending on the degree of severity of the disease and its dissemination, the entire radiation course of blood treatment can take up to 20 days, with one session per 1-2 days. The indications for the procedure are the general health improvement and diseases related to:
- respiratory system;
- cardiovascular system;
- nervous system;
- musculoskeletal system;
- gastro-intestinal tract;
- endocrine profile.
Contraindications to ILBI are the modified natural bodily conditions or pathological changes with a sharp response to irradiation:
- presence of malignant tumors;
- chronically increased production of thyroid hormones;
- mental disorders;
- pronounced chronic lowered pressure;
- reduced blood clotting ability;
- syndrome of hemoconcentration.
ILBI: Therapy Delivery at our Health Resort
"Matrix-ILBI" and "Lazmik-ILBI" – the medical equipment for laser therapy, which is the product of National Centre for Laser Medicine and Research Center "Matrix" joint activities. Wavelengths and power capacity of the equipment fall within the range of 0,36-0,9 microns and 1-35 mW respectively, which allows setting the most effective treatment regimen for different patients, while maintaining the low intensity beam. The additional ultraviolet or infrared light spectrum activation modes can optionally increase the effects of this procedure.
The specialists of our medical department conduct an intravenous irradiation using the equipment with a short fiber optic light (20 cm), which enables to have a direct effect on blood without any necessity to consider the specific characteristics of other tissues and organs.
Constant and profound study of LLLT methods, clinical trials and practical experience of qualified doctors of our center - not only allow predicting the results, but can also guarantee their safety. Treatment with the help of our therapy methods is not only effective, but also accelerates the rehabilitation after diseases. The atmosphere, setting, European service, high-quality food, healthy recreation and innovative treatments - all together it not only benefits to patients’ quick recreation, but may also become an excellent way of health problems prevention for your entire family.
