Hyperthermia Therapy: Alternative Cancer Treatment

Updated on February 18, 2014

In the last century, cancer cases have increased so dramatically that it is now a common disease among the public. In the US alone, it is estimated that 1,665,540 new cancer cases will be diagnosed by the end of 2014. In addition, roughly 586,000 Americans will die from this disease that same year.

Cancer occurs when healthy cells malfunction due to abnormalities in their genes and start multiplying out of control. The true cause of this disease is still a subject of debate. However, unhealthy diets, acidic blood, toxins, radiation, harmful microorganisms, stress and negative emotions have all been linked to cancer.

Did you know that pre-cancer cells develop in your body on a daily basis? A major reason why you don't have physical symptoms of cancer when you are healthy is due to the fact that your immune system is working properly. As you age, your health starts deteriorating and this eventually leads to a weak immune system. Having a weak immune system increases your chance of getting cancer, because the cells of your immune system can't eliminate abnormal cells fast enough.

Why Chemotherapy Isn't the Best Choice for Treating Cancer

One of the most popular conventional methods for treating cancer is chemotherapy. Unfortunately, chemotherapy has a lot of side effects due to its harmful chemicals. The drugs used in chemotherapy are effective at destroying cancerous cells, but they are also very harmful to healthy cells. For this reason, chemotherapy isn't a good long term approach for curing cancer. The best way to prevent cancer from growing out of control is to keep the immune system healthy.

Chemotherapy is very harmful to the immune system, which is why it isn't the best choice as a long term approach for treating cancer. Your immune system is your best tool to stop cancer. If your immune system has been heavily compromised, no amount of chemotherapy will be able to save you from cancer.

If you have been diagnosed with cancer, it is your responsibility to consider every treatment available. It is possible you may discover that standard cancer treatments aren't the best options for you. In this case, you may want to look into other alternative cancer treatments, such as hyperthermia therapy.

What Is Hyperthermia Therapy?

Hyperthermia therapy harnesses the power of heat and frequency in electromagnetic waves to kill cancerous cells without destroying healthy tissues. Using electromagnetic waves to destroy cancerous cells may sound strange to you, but scientists have been using electromagnetic waves (e.g., ultraviolet light) to destroy viruses and bacteria for decades.

A popular clinic that specializes in hyperthermia therapy is called Hyperthermia Centre Hannover. This clinic prefers to use hyperthermia therapy over chemotherapy because it is just as effective and has little or no side effects. During a hyperthermia treatment, the doctor will put you in a hyperthermia therapy machine. This machine will heat your body (excluding your head) to about 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius).

The increase in body temperature causes tumors to overheat, starving them of oxygen. This treatment causes cancer cells to become even more receptive to the chemicals used to kill them. In addition, the process of weakening the tumors makes it easier for the immune system to destroy them.

The Hyperthermia Centre Hannover also provides two other holistic cancer treatments, which include insulin potentiation therapy and electro cancer therapy. In addition, it encourages patients to eat a healthy organic plant based diet rich in cancer fighting nutrients.

Insulin Potentiation Therapy

Conventional doctors will quickly suggest that their patients get chemotherapy treatments as soon as they possibly can. These conventional treatments do kill off tumors, but they also take a toll on the human body. This is why the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover prefers to use insulin potentiation therapy instead of chemotherapy.

The human body relies on insulin to transport nutrients needed for cell health. Not only does insulin help transport nutrients, but it also makes cells more receptive to receiving nutrients. Researchers observed that cancerous cells seem to really like insulin and therefore they are more inclined to absorb the nutrients in insulin. This may be one of the reasons why cancerous cells have such an easy time spreading throughout the human body.

Insulin potentiation therapy is a form of cancer treatment that was developed in 1932. This therapy is designed to turn cancer cell's receptiveness to insulin into a weapon that can be used to eradicate the disease from the human body. Insulin potentiation therapy doesn't use as much drugs as chemotherapy; therefore, the side effects are less severe and it doesn't harm the immune system as much as chemotherapy.

Electro Cancer Therapy

Exposing cancerous cells to electrical currents has become a popular and effective form of alternative cancer treatment. The goal is to depolarize the cancerous cell, breaking down the membrane and ultimately destroying it. This type of cancer treatment is sometimes the only option for patients who have inoperable tumors. It is very effective on tumors that are close to the body's surface. Electro cancer therapy has little or no side effects. Although, some patients do notice a slight tingling sensation during their treatments but it is nothing too painful.
