How Far Infrared Heat Specifically Targets Cancer Cells

There are so many promising alternative cancer therapies out there that sometimes I hesitate to include this one. Basically it’s all about the healing power of Far Infrared heat. Similar to being in a warm car on a sunshine-filled day during winter did you ever ponder how it can feel so warm inside the car when the air outside is freezing? 

What you’re feeling is the infrared light from the sun. It is in this same way that Far Infrared saunas penetrate up to 1-1/2 inches below your skin to detoxify and revitalize your cells. This eventually produces a deep, detoxifying sweat that eliminates toxins at the cellular level. Infrared energy is powerful, yet it’s so safe it’s used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.

Heating the body is a well-known and underused method of killing cancer cells. Cancer cells are weaker than normal cells and more susceptible to damage from heat. Far Infrared saunas are superior for this purpose. However, when discussing cancer and Far Infrared Sauna therapy, or FIR, 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 on what others have discovered and experienced. The results of consistent use of FIR are very promising in terms of cancer prevention and possible cures.

Over 2,000 years ago, a Greek physician named Parmenides said, “Give me the power to create fever, and I will cure any disease.” Cancer clinics in Germany and Mexico are putting this principle to use. They routinely treat patients with hyperthermia, where the body is exposed to high temperatures. 

High temperatures can kill cancer cells, usually without damage to normal tissues. German cancer clinics use both hyperthermia and Far Infrared saunas for their patients as do do many Mexican clinics. Infrared saunas provide a form of whole-body hyperthermia that boosts your health in many ways.

To back this claim up I will cite an article in the Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, by Lawrence Wilson, MD. He writes, “If I were to single out one method to combat cancer, it is the infrared 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.” Dr. Wilson also notes that Far Infrared Sauna therapy for cancer offers a combination of healing mechanisms. They act simultaneously to support the fight against cancer. Infrared saunas are superior for this purpose, he says.

Hyperthermia or heating the body is an effective method of killing cancer cells, says Dr. Wilson. Cancer cells are weaker than normal cells and more susceptible to damage from heat. Eliminate toxins when in an Infrared sauna also helps purge the body of toxins, such as heavy metals and chemicals. Circulation is improved as cancer often grows in tissues with poor circulation and thus poor nutrition and oxygenation. Infrared saunas also boost overall circulation. 

This brings nutrients, hormones, oxygen and other substances to all body tissues. By cleansing internal organs like the liver, kidneys and others they will not become burdened with estrogen, chemicals, and toxic metals. Infrared saunas cause blood to move toward the body surface. 

This helps cleanse the internal organs. Pay attention to your largest organ; skin. Your skin is a major organ for eliminating body wastes. But in most people, it’s inactive because they don’t sweat enough. Far Infrared saunas help cleanse you from the inside. They encourage sweating and free up toxins stored beneath the skin.

In a clinical study published in the Journal of Cancer Science and Therapy, scientists studied Far Infrared’s effects on human cancer cells. Far Infrared therapy reduced tumor volumes 86% in thirty days. 

The tumor-suppressing effects were even seen without high temperatures as low as seventy seven degrees. In another study, researchers in Japan discovered that whole-body hyperthermia with Far Infrared strongly inhibited the growth of breast cancer tumors in mice without deleterious side effects. Researchers believe this therapy is promising for long-term studies of a noninvasive treatment of breast cancer.

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. This is not to be used as a stand alone therapy. FIR is best used in concert with other effective and convention cancer treatments.
