I have been intrigued by this therapy for some time now, and ever since the alternative clinic in Mexico had suggested that this would be one of the main treatments for my kind of cancer, together with the Gersion Therapy (juicing) and coffee enemas, I have thought of finding this therapy in Australia. There are not many of these machines here, but one is in Robino, Queensland. Since I am planning a road trip to Byron Bay end of April, this may just be a great little side trip – 1 hour north of Byron.
The benefits of Whole Body Hyperthermia
During Hyperthermia treatment, tumour tissues are treated directly, in a way that prevents damage to the healthy tissues surrounding it. As a result of the extensive research on thermobiology over the last several decades, we now know that temperatures above 40.5 °C have direct effects on malignant tissues. In short, heat can be used to kill tumor cells and inhibit their growth. During hyperthermia therapy, the tumour cells are overheated, creating a state of hypoxia, or lack of oxygen, and the creation of an acidic cell environment, which depletes cell nutrients within the tumor. In doing so, the cell metabolism of the tumor is disturbed, which leads to apoptosis, or cell death.
