Whilst I was in California accessing intravenous antibiotics, I also tried various other alternative treatments. One of which was an 8 week course of UVLrx. This is a new cutting edge treatment for infection and virus load and is getting great results for patients with Chronic Lyme. Ideally it would have been more beneficial for me to have up to 20 treatments of this but due to lack of financial funds it just wasn’t possible.
This treatment is the first of this type of direct-to-blood intravenous light therapy treatment to be available. For each treatment an intravenous catheter is inserted into a blood vessel in my arm and the Polychromatic light source administers multiple wavelengths into the insertion site for 1 hour per treatment. Other light based treatments only deliver a single wavelength where as this treatment delivers 3, therefore increasing the potential for healing and for destroying unwanted pathagons. The UV light in this treatment is a powerful antimicrobial agent working against blood born pathogens in the body. The additional wavelengths delivered have been proven to repair damaged cells in the body and enhance the immune system.
Prior to starting this I was slightly skeptical as to how much it would help, but after seeing other patients get such great results I knew I had to give it a go. I can tell you though, I literally noticed the difference after the first treatment, and during sessions 3-5, I actually noticed the difference during the hour of those sessions. My energy levels over all increased and on occasions it was like I had been given a double espresso! I found my mental clarity improved, and with each treatment my brain fog lessened considerably. The brain fog is on-going, but I do feel as a whole it has lessened in severity and my cognitive abilities have improved. I noticed over time, a considerable reduction of inflammation and pain. This was apparent especially in the back of my head and base of skull and neck, which after having encephalitis was a really troublesome area. During sessions 6-8, I felt I did herx much more than previous sessions, and our thoughts on this were that we were reaching infections at a much deeper level. Maybe it was some of those super persistent bugs who thought they were getting off lightly after invading my body!
I had noticed prior to this course of treatment that my tremors were at a high level and the feeling of internal vibrations/jitters was quite intense, and again although this does still exist on a daily basis the intensity of these type of neurological symptoms are greatly reduced. I believe for myself personally that I was responding well to this cutting edge medical technology and had I been able to afford further treatments of this type, that I would have most likely continued to see positive results.
UV light treatment has been used for over 80 years and has been proven to make rapid readjustments to a variety of health conditions. I think it was only a matter of time before a machine of this nature was invented and I hope that with time it can aid many patients in their healing journey. I am really pleased that Gordon Medical Associates have invested in this technology as it is another option which is less toxic to the body than conventional medicine.
As a whole I feel this treatment has reduced both my viral and infection load and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to another patient who is also suffering with chronic levels of pain and inflammation.
Big love, hope and light! Chantelle x
