Systemic hyperthermia

In 1996, there were medical reports that showed the spontaneous disappearance of cancerous tumours. This phenomenon is normally due to the patient’s own immunity or a stronger immune system while the patient underwent treatment. Some of the tumours that had been noted to disappear are as follows:

  • Kidney cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Melanoma

Therefore, one of the main aims of cancer treatment is to ensure that patients are able to maintain a healthy immune system in order to manage their condition. Having said that, in general, the conventional treatment pathway is to examine and destroy cancer cells that are found in the patient’s body. Upon the completion of the planned treatment cycle, the patient is put through various tests to ensure that they are clear of cancer. Patient education and precautionary actions need to be taken to reduce the chance of recurrence.

One of the techniques to increase the body’s immunity that many people do not know is a process known as Systemic hyperthermia or Whole-Body Hyperthermia. Through this process, the body’s temperature rises to 39-40 degrees Celsius. The raised temperature will result in better white blood cell function causing the increase of Heat Shock Protein (HSP) which is a type of stress protein that helps protects essential cells from harm.

Reports have shown that when the body is invaded by cancer cells or if the body has an infection, the body’s natural response is to trigger a fever. This is because when the body temperature rises, it stimulates white blood cells to come out to work. The key function of white blood cells is to fight infections or any foreign body for that matter.

Research studies have shown that many cancer patients may experience fever that comes and goes without a known cause or origin. From the oncology perspective, these fevers experienced are known as tumour fever. These fevers may be caused by when the immune system in the body works to fight the diseases. The body does it by increasing the body temperature which at the same time also triggers the white blood cells to fight cancer which is foreign to the body.

One of the techniques to increase the body’s immunity that many people do not know is a process known as Systemic hyperthermia or Whole-Body Hyperthermia. Through this process, the body’s temperature rises to 39-40 degrees Celsius. The raised temperature will result in better white blood cell function causing the increase of Heat Shock Protein (HSP) which is a type of stress protein that helps protects essential cells from harm. The increase in body temperature can also increase the function of other white blood cells such as T-cell, B-cell, Macrophage, Dendritic cell, and Natural-killer cell (NK-cell).

As the level of infection or tumour increase, the white blood cells get more divided to the point where there are gaps for further infections. This will also mean that the patient’s immunity will get lower and when that happens, it can also affect the efficacy of a patient’s treatment. Studies have shown that if the patient is being treated with a systemic heating device or Hyperthermia at a temperature of 39.5°C, there will be an increase in the number and function of the NK-cell and T-cells. These cells act like soldiers for the body and therefore automatically also increase the body’s immune system or defense.
