Hyperthermia Therapy

Hyperthermia in 3 different modalities

MICROWAVE HYPERTERMIA

Hyperthermia use microwaves controlled by a computer targeting cancer mass, raising the internal temperature of the cancer cell approximately 107 to 108 Fahrenheit. Several research centers & hospitals throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States are actively studying the application of hyperthermia on weakening and even killing cancer cells within the body. In addition, this same research is also showing how hyperthermia can be combined together with radiation, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy medicines so that their positive effects can be enhanced in the killing of cancer cells. In basic terms you are "boosting" the benefits of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and immunotherapy with heat! For patients whose cancers have become more resistant to chemotherapy, hyperthermia is also showing promise in making those situations work better as well. There are several reasons as to how the use of hyperthermia work in fighting cancer: • Increases the immune system cells capacity to kill cancer cells. (i.e. macrophage, lymphocyte, cytotoxic T cells, dendritic cells.) • Increases lymphocyte recruitment and trafficking into the tumor area • Increases heat-shock proteins. • Increases blood flow/oxygen to the more low oxygen tumors (i.e. hypoxic tumors) • Makes tumor cell walls more "leaky" or weaker; allowing cancer-killing medicines to enter the cell more easily.

TDP INFRARED LAMP

magraylampThe use of TDP mineral lamp is a traditional Chinese therapy has been used for acupuncturists, body work therapist and other medical professionals, the premise of the lamp is that the far infrared (below visible light) emissions increases microcirculation accelerating the natural healing processes of the body. The TDP Lamp is unlike any other heat lamp. While most lamps use a common infrared bulb, the specially engineered TDP Lamp features a "black body" emission heating plate which is coated with a proprietary mineral formulation consisting of 33 elements. When activated by a built-in electric heating element, this mineral plate emits a special band of far infrared electromagnetic energy which penetrates deep into the human body. The human body (cells) has higher absorption efficiency for far infrared energy than near infrared. The state of research in 1985 showed TDP mineral lamp therapy to have been successfully used to treat over 30 different human and animal diseases and disorders; clinical evidence confirmed that TDP mineral lamp therapy would reduce inflammation, calm pain, and improve micro-circulation, and balance metabolism. Evidence was gathered substantiating TDP mineral lamp use promoted cell growth, reproduction, and repair, concurrently with promotion of specific enzyme activity levels and immune function.

FAR INFRARED SAUNA

ozone-sauna For many the biggest news in FIR technology is its application in the evolving science of detoxification, and the device being used is the far-infrared sauna. At home and in clinics, these saunas are said to yield many benefits; including relief from different kinds of pain, stimulation of immune response, improvements on skin tone and conditions, and accelerated burning of calories, but detox application is health news can benefit everyone. Today we are seeing new technologies, but one should say old techniques; employing far-infrared energy in healthcare products and in clinical protocols such as hyperthermic therapies for detoxification and cancer treatments. Traditionally we’ve gotten our daily dose of infrared from sunlight, which is composed of all the energy wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. Electromagnetic spectrum is the entire range of radiant energies, measured as waves of frequencies. Electromagnetic refers to the ability to exist as both particle (matter) waves (frequency). The spectrum is usually divided into seven sections, from the longest to the shortest wavelengths; radio, microwave, infrared, visible ultraviolet, x-ray and gamma-ray. Humans like other living organisms, have evolved to have unique absorption spectrum and to response specifically to particular electromagnetic wavelengths. Far-infrared light penetrates beyond the skin level and is absorbed efficiently by cells bellow, whereas visible light is mostly bounced off the skin surface. Far-infrared can penetrate up to 4 centimeters (1-1/2 inches) exciting the vibrational energy of molecules and resonating with cellular frequencies. The mechanism of action is in some ways simple. It is related to vasodilatation, or increased blood flow and local temperature. The penetrating far-infrared energy brings in nutrients and oxygen to the soft tissue region being treated and at the same time stimulates the removal of accumulated toxins. Also far-infrared has an ionizing effect.
