At least three different types of light therapy can benefit MRSA suffers. They are: blue light therapy, UVB light therapy, and UV blood irradiation.
Blue Light Therapy
In several studies, blue light has been proven to kill staph and MRSA bacteria. It does this naturally, without the risk of UV, and without any negative side effects. Learn more.
UVB Light Therapy
UVB is what produces Vitamin D3 in the skin. Vitamin D3 helps in two ways.
The best way to get UVB light therapy is by regular, full body sun exposure. Since that is hardly realistic for most people today, the next best thing is artificial UVB, found in low-pressure tanning beds. Vitamin D3 supplements are also available, but require fairly regular blood tests to make sure optimum levels are achieved and maintained year round.
UV Blood Irradiation
If the antibiotic resistant infection has made it’s way into the blood, it is possible to treat this with light using UV blood irradiation. In this case, blood is directed out of the body, filtered through UV light, then directed back into the body. The UV light exposure kills the bacteria in the blood, harming nothing else. For more information about this therapy, please visit this page Medical Light Association’s website and see item #3. We also have a few links to related books on our Resources page.
