Whole Body Hyperthermia is a highly technical procedure that raises the temperature of the entire body under a controlled medical environment. The main goal is to capitalize on the fact that tumors have a disorganized vascular structure that cannot dissipate heat, triggering protein damage and apoptosis, or program destuction of the cell.
Hyperthermia mimics a fever. It increases blood flow and oxygenation by 10 fold, helping good cells, but with devastating effect on cancer cells-making them less able than normal cell to withstand the added stress from heat.
This procedure enhances good response to other therapies given at lower doses.
Am I a candidate for this treatment?
All types of cancer such as Breast , Gastrointestinal, Colon, Prostate, Ovarian, Lung, Skin, Lymphoma, Chronic Leukemia, Liver, Kidney, Pancreatic, Esophagus, etc., are affected by this treatment. To find out if you are a candidate for this form of treatment talk to one of our doctors.
The procedure called "Whole Body Perfusion Hyperthermia" induces heat from the inside-out, bypassing the natural body barriers and insulating systems, to effectively raise the core temperature of the body.
Higher temperature raises enzyme activity, oxygen saturation and immunity several fold, affecting cancer cells directly, but leaving normal cells unharmed.
Renders cancer sensitive to other therapies ranging from administration of high doses of vitamin C or A to other drugs or radiation.

Whole body hyperthermia is widely recommended as an effective treatment for most forms of cancers, especially patients suffering from metastatic disease from their primary tumor.
