Early Uses of Oxidative Medicine
The use of oxidative therapies clinically was first documented during the great flu outbreak of 1918-1920. During that time a British physician in India was able to cut the death rate of influenza and pneumonia by 50 percent using intravenous hydrogen peroxide therapy. Ultraviolet energy had been applied to skin for skin infections. Then, in the 1930s and ’40s, ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) treatment began to appear in the literature and a physicist named Knott developed a technique for removing some blood, treating it with ultraviolet light, and putting it back into the patient.
Remember, this was before antibiotics, and the therapy was remarkably effective for treating infections that would have otherwise been fatal.
