The following text is an excerpt from the excellent book “Cancer Step Out of the Box” by Ty Bollinger. Reproduced here, with his kind permission.
I would be interested to hear from anyone who has successfully treated their cancer with Hyperthermia. It is something I have considered with my own. Simply because of where my cancer is situated (colorectal).
Hyperthermia is an artificially induced fever. Hippocrates noted that “ illness not cured by heat is incurable .” In 1893, Dr. William B. Coley observed the regression of cancer in 10 patients into whom he injected bacterial toxins (aka Coley’s toxins) directly into the tumor and created a high fever. The modern name for Coley’s toxins is Mixed Bacterial Vaccine (MBV). In a German study, advanced non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma patients receiving MBV had a 93% remission rate, compared to 29% for controls receiving chemotherapy. (Dr. Ralph W. Moss, The Cancer Industry , page 160) In 1927, Julius Wagner-Jauregg received the Nobel Prize in medicine for work involving the therapeutic application of hyperthermia.
Fever has long been a misunderstood and mistreated symptom. Most orthodox doctors try to combat and suppress fever, hence the need for Advil and Tylenol. However, the fact is that fever is a constructive, health-promoting symptom, initiated and created by the body in its own effort to fight infections and other conditions of disease and to restore health. You see, fever speeds up metabolism, inhibits the growth of invading virus or bacteria, and accelerates the healing processes.
Hyperthermia is a therapeutic procedure used to raise the temperature of cancerous tumor to at least 108ºF for one hour. It is based on a simple and easily verifiable scientific fact that a temperature of 108ºF kills cancer cells but not normal human tissue cells. In normal tissues, blood vessels open up (dilate) when heat is applied, dissipating the heat and cooling down the cell environment. Unlike healthy cells, a tumor is a tightly packed group of cells, and circulation is restricted and sluggish. When heat is applied to the tumor, vital nutrients and oxygen are cut off from the tumor cells. This results in a collapse of the tumor’s vascular system and destruction of the cancer cells.
All we need is some way to raise the body’s temperature, and we create a selectively negative environment for the renegade cancer cells, which can be mopped up by the immune system. Microwave energy is very effective in heating cancerous tumors, because tumors typically have high-water content. In 1990, Dr. Alan J. Fenn (an electrical engineer at Massachusetts Institute of Technology) developed a concept for heating deep tumors by means of adaptive microwaves. These adjust to the properties of a patient’s tissue to concentrate the microwave energy at the tumor.
There are several other methods used to induce hyperthermia, such as full-body submersion in hot water, ultrasound, and saunas, to name a few. Personally, I prefer saunas, since the skin is our largest eliminative organ and is sometimes called the “third kidney.” As a general rule, the skin should eliminate 30% of the body’s toxic wastes by way of perspiration. However, due to lack of physical work and an overly sedentary life, the skin of most people today has degenerated as an eliminative organ (since most people never sweat). If health is to be restored, it is of vital importance that the eliminative activity of the skin is revitalized. Taking sauna or steam baths regularly will help to restore and revitalize the cleansing activity of the skin. Hyperthermia combined with low dose radiation is a very effective treatment for many forms of cancer. There are few side effects and the body has the ability to recover from the low dose radiation in most cases.
Dr. A. Lwoff, a famous French bacteriologist, has demonstrated in repeated scientific experiments that fever is indeed a “great medicine,” and that it can help to cure many “incurable” diseases. Renowned oncologist, Dr. Josef Issels, stated: “ Artificially induced fever has the greatest potential in the treatment of many diseases, including cancer .” Keep in mind that this remark was made by one of the leading cancer specialists in the world!
“Hyperthermia gives cancer a “triple whammy” by:
1. removing accumulations of toxic chemicals that cause cancer
2. improving circulation so that tissues are both nourished with oxygen and flushed of acidic wastes
3. weakening or even killing cancer cells that have a lower tolerance for heat than healthy cells.”
In May 2009, the BSD Medical Corporation (based in Salt Lake City) attained a Humanitarian Use Device (HUD) designation for the company’s BSD-2000 Hyperthermia System for use in conjunction with radiation therapy for the treatment of some cervical carcinoma patients. But if you try to get hyperthermia treatment in an American hospital, you will mostly experience frustration. If you want to have a reasonable chance of adding hyperthermia to your own cancer treatment program you will still have to go to Germany, China or some other country that welcomes innovation.
Please note that because hyperthermia only focuses on destroying cancer cells in tumors and not on rebuilding the immune system with nutrition, the cancer patient should always use hyperthermia in conjunction with a nutrition-based protocol. Over 2,000 years ago, the famous Greek physician, Parmenides, stated “ Give me a chance to create fever, and I will cure any disease .” This traditional wisdom has certainly stood the test of time.
