Alternative Cancer Treatment - Hyperthermia

For years, though the principles of tumor heating were widely understood, the technology to direct the heat in a concentrated area lagged behind the theory. In modern day hyperthermia, controlling heating placement is done using fine sensors and directional applicators that are now standard in hyperthermic medical treatment worldwide. Using microwaves and computers with these devices, cancerous tumors is heated from 107°F-114°F, breaking down the tumor without harming the surrounding tissues.

In normal tissues, blood vessels open up, 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. With heat applied to the tumor, vital nutrients and oxygen are cut off from the tumor cells. This results in a collapse of the tumors vascular system and destruction of the cells.

Hyperthermia in conjunction with low-dose IMRT is purpose intended to cure when tumors is localized. This approach has a curative intent, as opposed to palliative treatment used in conventional therapies like radiation alone, high toxic chemotherapy, and the "point of no return," surgery, whose purpose is only to prolong patients' lives. The high temperatures can destroy the malignant tumor without harming the surrounding healthy tissue. There is also evidence that hyperthermia increases the patients' immune system, allowing the patients' own system to fight the cancer as well as the side effects of other treatments. Hyperthermia also increases the effectiveness of radiation and/or chemotherapy

Hyperthermia greatly improves results of other cancer treatments
Hyperthermia combined with radiation therapy or chemotherapy, there is a dramatic improvement in response rates. A recent study comparing results from leading hyperthermia researchers showed that beneficial responses were obtained by only 33% of patients treated with radiation alone, compared to 67% when radiation therapy was combined with hyperthermia. There is a twofold to threefold increase in the favorable response rate

The most effective treatable sites Hyperthermia is known for are: brain, breast, bone, base of tongue, colon, neck, ovaries, prostate, skin, throat, thyroid, uterus and other anatomical sites.
The types of tumors hyperthermia is known for treating are: adenocarcinoma, carcinoma, thymoma, squamous cell, mesothelioma, sarcoma, melanoma, lymphoma, basal cell among others.
For many patients, battling cancer has also meant fighting constant pain, or relying on strong narcotics. However, there is now an excellent alternative without any addictive effects from drugs. Hyperthermia not only effects cancer treatment, but also can dramatically reduce pain. This can help patients to have more energy to their fight against cancer, and to have a better quality of life.

Adding hyperthermia with the targeted radiation in the form of IMRT "Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy," an advanced cancer treatment therapy implemented, and developed by Dr Bicher, is not done anywhere else!
