What is Hyperthermia Therapy
Hyperthermia treatment or therapy refers to heating the body or parts of the body to induce healing. It’s a practice that has been around for hundreds of years, and Molecular Hyperthermia Therapy is among the newer forms of this.
Creating Unique Health Experiences
Hyperthermia Therapy, a form of heat treatment, which in turn increases blood flow and enhances the efficient delivery of oxygen, nutrients, and low-dose chemotherapy.
Hyperthermia Therapy is a non-invasive treatment method that can accelerate the healing process.
Cancer Immunity and Therapy using Hyperthermia
Hyperthermia is currently being used in most of the “leading” countries in cancer research. It can be applied locally at a fixed point, or in a generalized manner, throughout the body surface. Its purpose is to complement the classic treatments of chemotherapy or radiotherapy, to enhance its effects and sensitize the tumor to these treatments. In several countries it is already considered the 4th pillar in the treatment of cancer (along with chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery). It is a treatment that, in addition to cancer, is indicated for other pathologies where the immune system is weakened and where its anti-inflammatory effect may be useful, such as fibromyalgia, Lyme disease or chronic inflammatory diseases.
Mechanism of Hyperthermia
Heat therapy began in ancient times when hot water from thermal springs, mud baths, and hot steam from volcanic caves was utilized for healing. Many Greek and Roman physicians agreed that increasing a body’s temperature (hyperthermia) could fight even the most critical of diseases, including cancer. The Greek philosopher Parmenides was deeply convinced of the effectiveness of hyperthermia and said, “Give me the power to produce fever and I will cure all diseases”. In the 19th century, New York physician, William Coley, successfully administered toxins to his cancer patients to induce fever and elevate their temperatures to begin the healing process. In the late ’70s, U.S. trials of hyperthermia showed that when combined with radiation, the results in cancer patients were more successful than with radiation alone. Currently, hyperthermia is becoming more utilized in the United States, with EKSO treatment being an increasingly popular choice.
