Hyperthermia therapy

Hyperthermia is a therapy in which the body temperature is increased. The body is overheated and brought up to 39 – 43° C, which makes use of the positive properties of fever. Among other things, it stimulates the immune system, supports detoxification through perspiration, and also improves blood circulation, resulting in increased tissue perfusion.

Basic research shows that, depending on metabolic conditions, from 41.5° C, a cell-killing and growth-inhibiting effect can occur in carcinomas or cancer tissues. Due to the mentioned properties, hyperthermia is not only used for cancer and chronic infections, but also shows a positive effect for chronic pain, weakness of the immune system, fibromyalgia or rheumatism.

Fever is a natural and effective reaction of the body to various pathological situations. Many people lose the ability to develop fever over the course of life. With the help of hyperthermia, a kind of artificial fever is created, which results in the various positive properties.
