Contrary to local or regional hyperthermia, systemic hyperthermia aims to alleviate systemic disease conditions. Some of these are:
Degenerative diseases of the locomotor system.
Chronic inflammation like sinusitis, bronchitis, asthma, prostatitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and rheumatic conditions.
Chronic and recurrent viral infections.
Conditions requiring detoxification.
Whole Body Hyperthermia Therapy is founded on solid physical and biological principles. Modern Whole Body Hyperthermia devices utilize heat input techniques with skin-compatible and depth-effective water-filtered IR-A-radiation (wIRA) directly into blood-streamed tissues. We measure and monitor the body’s core temperature, heart rate, oxygen saturation, blood pressure, heart rate and respiratory frequency to achieve the best therapeutic effect with minimal patient toxicity. The effects that can be achieved include:
Immune system stimulation.
Direct killing of targeted cells (through short bouts of maximally tolerated temperatures).
Indirect curative effects (through longer duration treatments at lower temperatures).
Synergistic effect with other treatment modalities such as biological immune therapies or immunotherapy, orthomolecular therapies, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, etc.
