Hyperthermia

 

 “Give me the power to produce fever and I’ll cure all disease”,
quote from the Greek doctor Parmenides, ca. 500 BCE.

 

This guiding principle resulted in the well-known Nobel Prize winner Prof. Manfred v. Ardenne taking up the development of equipment to artificially raise the core body temperature; so called Hyperthermia treatment beds. Sauna and infrared cabins warm only the body surface, whereas systematic whole body hyperthermia targets the careful warming of the whole body to over 38.5 °C and higher.

 

The system IRATHERM® 1000 uses for this purpose special water-filtered infrared-A radiation which releases the energy only in the deep skin tissues. Therefore, a temperature increase which is well tolerated is possible despite the high energy intensity.

 

During the whole body hyperthermia, the treated person lies unclothed and covered in a heat foil on a free standing bed with a special net through which the sweat can easily drip. The head of the patient is free during the whole procedure so that there is no problem with claustro­phobia.

 

Whole body hyperthermia; its effects:

  • Improving the metabolic activity
  • Improving the oxygen supply
  • Improving blood and lymph flow, tissue regeneration
  • Stimulating detoxification
  • Reducing pain by removal of pain inducing substances
  • Strengthening the immune system, building up resistance
  • Stimulating the inner function of the glands (influence on the micro and control hormones)
  • Energy supply through heat and photodynamic effect on the mitochondria

 

Whole body hyperthermia; its scope of application:

  • General lack of performance und energy weakness
  • Chronic pains of all types, back and sciatic pains, joint pains
  • Muscular tensions
  • The elimination of unwanted substances and toxins (caused by metal, pharmaceutical and organic toxic loads) is stimulated
  • Essential hypertension grade 1 and 2
  • Fibromyalgia, polymyalgias and polyarthralgias
  • Rheumatic illnesses
  • Autoimmune illnesses (scleroderma, lupus erythematosus)
  • Chronic infections of all types (borreliosis, viruses)
  • Depression depending on the season (especially winter depression)
  • Complementary biological immunotherapy for treating cancer (active pre and post checks, combined into an overall immunobiological concept)

 

Our therapeutic treatment staff guide you through the whole procedure, from start to finish.

The local hyperthermia therapy (Indiba®)

 

Indiba® is a local hyperthermia therapy using electrodes with alternating current that stimulates the movement of ions in the tissues and results in a local deep warming. Simply put, a “local fever” is created that restores the natural cell membrane potential and the defense system. Tumor cells are sensitive to heat and if they are exposed over a longer time to a “fever” they can recede. Also other chronic or degenerative illnesses can be positively influenced. The effect of the local hyperthermia is similar to the one of whole body hyperthermia.

Local hyperthermia; its scope of application:

  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Dislocation of joints
  • Tumors
  • Chronic or degenerative illnesses

 

Every person has an individual sensitivity to heat that can change daily depending on various factors. The heat of hyperthermia should be as warm as possible, but not to the level where there is a sensation of burning.

Jeder Mensch hat ein individuelles Wärmeempfinden, das sich auch durch verschiedene Umstände täglich verändert. Die Wärme der Hyperthermie sollte so warm wie möglich, nicht aber als Brennen empfunden werden.
