My family, particularly on my mother’s side, is very prone to cancer. The women tend to get breast and ovarian cancer and the men are diagnosed with prostate and pancreatic cancer. To date I have lost both maternal grandparents, a couple of aunts and three cousins. To me this is not only tragic it’s frightening. As a result I have thoroughly vetted the information regarding how Far Infrared sauna therapy aids in prevention and even possibly cures for many varieties of cancer.
When discussing cancer and Far Infrared sauna therapy it is always advisable to add the disclaimer that I am not a professional and therefore can make no promises in terms of prevention or cures. That said I can report to you on what others have discovered and experienced. The results of consistent use of Far Infrared sauna therapy are very promising in terms of cancer prevention and possible cures.
Commonly quoted is Lawrence Wilson, MD. In 2004 he wrote an article on Far Infrared sauna therapy and the battle combating cancer, “If I were to single out one method to combat cancer, it is the sauna. It assists in the removal of chemical toxins and heavy metals, increases oxygenation, enhances the immune system and reduces the radiation burden in the body.” The use of Far Infrared saunas provide a form of whole body hyperthermia which boosts health in several ways acting simultaneously and synergistically to support the fight against cancer.
Specifically the principal of hyperthermia reveals that cancer cells are far more sensitive to and intolerant of excessive heat than normal cells. Cancer cells cannot adapt and reproduce within higher temperatures. Tumors are simply unable to handle heated blood circulating around them. Cancer cells are weaker than normal ones thus more susceptible to elevated heat. It has been shown, in many studies, that high temperatures actually kill cancer cells while maintaining the integrity of surrounding healthy cells.
Far Infrared sauna therapy flushes toxins and disease from your body thus allowing for optimal physical and mental health. Infrared heat can also play a significant role in cancer reversal and prevention. When battling cancer, or attempting to prevent it, adding Far Infrared sauna therapy into your health routine assists in killing all types of abnormal cells. These cells include ones containing radioactive minerals, chemical toxins, toxic metals and even other defective or abnormal cells. Though far from conventional, the use of Far Infrared sauna therapy and the resultant hyperthermia, is a well researched therapy for cancer.
Utilizing heat, or inducing a fever in cancer patients, is not new. The Greek physician, Parmenides, agreed. Two thousand years ago he stated, “Give me the power to create fever, and I will cure any disease.” William Coley, MD, published a paper in 1891 about this very subject. Noting that cancer patients who became feverish sometimes went into remission, his research revolved around the revelation that induction of a fever, in the body of a cancer patient, possibly stimulated the body’s natural immune response thereby causing the cancer to subside. Currently many hospitals in the US offer some form of induced infrared hyperthermia for cancer patients, the easiest and most efficient being the use of the Far Infrared sauna. Far Infrared heats the patients body causing a fever, boosting health in several ways. It is also an effective tool for detoxifying after many sessions of chemotherapy.
Considering my family’s health history I will always use Far Infrared sauna therapy as part of my ongoing health maintenance therapy. When battling cancer, or attempting to prevent it, adding Far Infrared sauna therapy into your health routine assists in killing all types of abnormal cells. This is not to be used as a stand alone therapy. Far Infrared heat is best used in conjunction with other effective and conventional cancer treatments.
