Local Body Hyperthermia
Local Body Hyperthermia treatments use modern technology to target and destroy tumours without damaging surrounding healthy tissue. Unlike the X-ray radiation used in conventional radiotherapy, Local Hyperthermia is not radioactive and does not harm the patients.
It has become an important and sought-after treatment in integrative medicine because the risks compared to chemotherapy are significantly lower.
Worldwide, over 20,000 studies related to hyperthermia and cancers have been completed, and many scientists now consider Local Body Hyperthermia treatments as the fourth pillar of cancer treatment. It is EU-approved and widely used in European cancer clinics.
Why Choose Local Body Hyperthermia?
In localised hyperthermia, an area of the body is heated in a way that the concentrated heat will start to destroy cancer cells. The reason is that healthy cells can self-regulate and have the ability to dissipate artificial heat effectively and quickly.
Most tumours do not have this ability. The treatment involves the placement of a probe onto the patient’s skin. High frequency waves are then targeted into the tumour, heating and killing its cells without the healthy tissue around it being harmed.
