Local Body Hyperthermia
Local Body Hyperthermia treatments use modern technology to target and destroy tumours without damaging surrounding healthy tissue. Unlike the X-ray radiation used in conventional radiotherapy, Local Hyperthermia is not radioactive and doesn’t harm the patients.
It has become an important and sought-after treatment in integrative medicine because the risks compared to chemotherapy are significantly lower.
Worldwide, over 20,000 studies related to hyperthermia and cancers have been completed, and many scientists now consider Local Body Hyperthermia treatments as the fourth pillar of cancer treatment. It is EU-approved and widely used in European cancer centers.
Local body hyperthermia is a type of cancer treatment in which a specific area of the body is exposed to high temperatures in order to kill cancer cells. This treatment is often used in conjunction with other cancer therapies, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy, to improve their effectiveness. Local body hyperthermia has a number of potential benefits for cancer patients, including the following:
- Reduced side effects of chemotherapy: Local body hyperthermia may also help to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy, such as nausea and vomiting. This is because the high temperatures can help to kill cancer cells that may be resistant to chemotherapy drugs, allowing for lower doses of the drugs to be used.
- Increased effectiveness of chemotherapy: Local body hyperthermia can increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy by making cancer cells more sensitive to the drugs. When the body is exposed to high temperatures, the blood vessels in the treated area become more permeable, allowing chemotherapy drugs to more easily reach the cancer cells.
- Targeted treatment: Local body hyperthermia is a targeted treatment, meaning that it only affects the specific area of the body that is exposed to the high temperatures. This can be especially beneficial for cancer patients who may not be able to tolerate the side effects of more widespread treatments, such as whole-body hyperthermia.
- Improved quality of life: In addition to its potential benefits for cancer treatment, local body hyperthermia may also help to improve a patient’s quality of life. This is because it can help to reduce pain and other symptoms associated with cancer and its treatment.
Overall, local body hyperthermia is a promising treatment for cancer that can be used in conjunction with other therapies to improve their effectiveness and reduce side effects.
Why Choose Local Body Hyperthermia?
The introduction of a specific hormone reduces the blood glucose level to a safe minimum. By doing this, the cancer cells are weakened, their membranes become more permeable and the extra receptors increase sensitivity to any form of chemotherapy. At that moment, a very low dose of chemotherapy (10-15% of the usual dose) is injected with the aim of killing those weakened cancer cells.
The side effects of the chemotherapy drug on the organs are minimised due to the low dose administered. Therefore, this form of therapy is very well tolerated and can be repeated many times. It is suitable for almost all type of cancers.
