Total Body Hyperthermia Fever Therapy

Total Body Hyperthermia Fever Therapy services offered in Buffalo, NY

OWM total body hyperthermia fever therapy is performed  with a specialized dome sauna. It is used to treat multiple conditions such as cancer, Lyme disease, bacterial and viral infections, and  autoimmune conditions. Parmenides from Elea 540-480 BC wrote; “give me the power to create fever and I can cure any disease”. Clinical research suggests that fever is one of the bodies most effective means to restore its complex regulatory, repair and defense mechanism.
Healthy cells survive increased heat environments without lasting damage while the increased metabolism that accompanies the heat can irrevocably harm damaged, infected or mutated (cancer) cells.  Total body hyperthermia is used to induce a fever of 103°F. Our curved dome sauna uses infrared technology to penetrate through the skin and into the tissues and blood vessels. This deep heating raises body's core temperature gently and safely to therapeutic fever levels.

On a cellular level, whole body sauna induces metabolic changes that include:

  • Improved immune function
  • Lowers inflammation markers
  • Lowers inflammatory cytokines
  • Production of heat shock proteins
  • Increased production of endogenous antioxidants
  • Reduced oxidative stress
  • Increased NO (nitric oxide) bioavailability
  • Increased insulin sensitivity
  • Induces Nrf2 pathway
  • Improved detoxification and elimination
  • Improved cardiovascular functions and endothelial-dependent vasodilatation metabolic pathways
  • Increased mitochondrial function



 The benefits of total tissue hyperthermia induced fever therapy are numerous. Most importantly, hyperthermia activates our bodies natural healing mechanisms which can then promote repair as well as fight off cancer and infections.

How is OWM’s total body hyperthermia different?

  • OWM’s curved dome sauna uses infrared technology for safe deep heating
  • Adjunctive fluid and electrolyte replacement is used through intravenous and oral routes
  • Ambient relaxation music and virtual reality meditation is used to help clients achieve healing brain alpha states during the hyperthermia therapy session



  • Temperature is raised to 103.1°F over the course of one hour. The body’s elevated core temperature is maintained in the turned-off sauna dome for additional two hours
  • The patient typically loses 2-3 liters of fluid through sweat. This fluid is replaced by drinking 2-3 liters of filtered water during each sauna session
  • Body’s core temperature is closely monitored through a rectal probe thermometer
