Hot water therapy: A cool way to treat cancer

by , 04 July 2014

A treatment used 5,000 years ago in Egypt is proving to be effective today in treating cancer.

It's called therapeutic hyperthermia and it uses water to heat the cancer tumour and the surrounding area.

Today, doctors are using this therapy to enhance other cancer therapies, especially radiation.

Here's how it works, and how it could help you or someone you know to fight cancer.

“By the end of summer, his doctor could find no trace of cancer
David J. had an 8cm tumour wrapped around his backbone – entering his spinal column – when he entered the hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia. This former athlete was completely paralysed. Surgery was scheduled, but the cancer was officially declared “incurable”.
Just four days later, David walked out of the hospital, using only a cane. A year later, he was swimming and riding his mountain bike again. By the end of the summer, his doctor could find no trace of cancer in his body.
What on earth helped David finally beat it? Some toxic new chemotherapy? No.
Believe it or not, he owes a good part of his recovery to a revolutionary therapy you’ll read about starting on page 72 in How to Fight Cancer & Win...

Doctors recommend Therapeutic hyperthermia with radiation
Therapeutic Hyperthermia treats cancer by exposing your body tissue to temperatures of up to 113°C. Typically, it’s given to a patient before a radiation course.
The patient lies in a darkened room and the precisely-heated hot water bags are carefully positioned on the affected area. The treatment lasts about an hour. Once the hyperthermia session is over, the patient immediately moves on to radiation.
Research has shown that high temperatures can damage and kill cancer cells, usually with minimal injury to normal tissues. By killing cancer cells and damaging proteins and structures within the cells, hyperthermia then shrinks the cells.
So why are doctors recommending hyperthermia with radiation? Because the heat improves the blood flow to the area where the tumour is, bringing more oxygen to the tissues, which increases the effectiveness of radiation.
Plus, it kills cancer stem cells that resist radiation. It also supports your immune system.
And the good news is that it’s risk and side effects are small.
Hyperthermia is popular for treating cancers on the surface of the body
This form of treatment is used often to treat cancers that occur near the surface of the body, such as breast cancer and skin cancer. But more and more, doctors are prescribing therapeutic hyperthermia to patients with cervix cancer, prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer and cancer in the rectum, bladder and liver.
Research is even indicating that this form of treatment is especially beneficial for people with recurring cancer where radiation didn’t help.
If you or a loved one is battling with cancer, speak to your oncologist about adding therapeutic hyperthermia to your treatment.
