Wondering if anyone has gone this rote. Have been discussing this as a potential next step with my LLMD after ending IV antibiotic therapy.

I have elevated Epstein Barr and mycoplasma titers, and being perviously diagnosed with CFS/Me, and doc thinks my viral load might be high due to immune suppression from lyme and confections.

We also think I may have a mold issue, as mold is a potent neurotoxin.

Quick background: UVIB passes blood through Uv light to kill virus, bacteria, fungus, etc. it is FDA approved as therapy for some conditions, though obviously unproven for various alternative uses.

I have been doing this for a year now and was getting better but stopped rx for 5 months and now feeling crappy again. I just started doing this rx again and can really herx badly after one of these treatments.

They do seem to work well

I don't mind trying this treatment, it sounds good in theory. But I'm unsure how much blood could be passed through each session to make it work.
