Hyperthermia is an artificially induced fever that provides the body with all the same healing effects as a natural fever. It is used locally or over the entire body. Perhaps the most important yet most overlooked mechanism of a fever is the fact that it increases mitochondrial function. It is important to note that without exception, degenerative diseases are not possible in an individual where the mitochondria function is at optimum levels.
One form of hyperthermia is provided by the steam sauna which mimics a fever state resulting in an effective natural process of detoxifying and stimulating the healing processes. FIR Far Infrared Rays, raise the body temperature at a deeper level. The HOCATT™ System used both Far Infrared Rays and steam sauna to increase the body’s temperature safely and effectively. Artificially induced hyperthermia results in the destruction of bacteria and viruses combined with heavy sweating resulting in a cleansing effect. Adding ozone will result in the elimination of toxins and accumulation mainly in the lymphatic system relieving the liver from the difficult task of dealing with them. In a 1959 review of studies on the effects of heat treatments, Mayo Clinic researcher Dr. Wakim and colleagues cite findings indicating that the number of white blood cells in the blood increased by an average of 58% during artificially induced fever. The generation of antibodies speeds up, as does the production of interferon, an anti-viral protein that also has powerful properties. Documented studies show that induced Hyperthermia eliminates anaerobic viruses and bacteria; cleans and detoxifies; aids mental clarity; cleans veins and arteries improving circulation and speeds up metabolic processes resulting in a 200-450 calorie loss per session. Research has indicated that in most cases, there can be a reversal of many degenerative type diseases and ameliorating aging process.
Unlike normal tissue, tumors have poor blood flow relative to their metabolic needs and cannot dissipate the heat, so they tend to get hotter than the surrounding area. Rapidly dividing cells are more vulnerable to the effect of heat. Normally, part of the damage caused by radiation is repaired by the cells, enabling some to survive, however, heat foils this self-repair ability. Taken together, these facts tend to make tumors more vulnerable to heat treatment than normal cells. Hyperthermia increases Tumor Necrosis Factor (a substance produced by the immune systems to eliminate tumor) by 500 times. Hyperthermia is now approved in the US for treatment of different areas.
