Total Body Hyperthermia
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 body’s 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 the body’s core temperature gently and safely to therapeutic fever levels.
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.
Treatments last 3 hours.
Conditions That Benefit:
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 and it can be beneficial for the following:
- Lyme disease: Neurological Lyme, Lyme induced autoimmune and CIRS response
- Neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis
- Cardiovascular Health
- Cancer Therapy and Prevention
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
What to know before you go
Total Body Hyperthermia stimulate immune system to improve its defense against infections and downregulate autoimmunity
It’s effective in treating chronic infections and mitochondrial disorders.
Total Body Hyperthermia induced therapeutic fever therapy is not FDA approved as therapy for cancer and is used as an adjunct to conventional cancer therapy at OWM. Weekly treatments are recommended during active cancer therapy.
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 an additional two hours. The client 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.
The client’s core body temperature is closely monitored through a rectal probe thermometer.
