I usually research into hypothetical issues but today I would like to help bridge the hypothetical with the Physical. There have been many recent developments in physics lately, one of which I strongly believe will Transform modern medicine. Hyperthermia Therapy is a potent cancer fighting tool that is less offensive, more actual, and easier to deliver than most current conservative anticancer therapies on the market. Hyperthermia Therapy itself (the ability to deliver a fever (heat) to treat disease in the body) has been around since at least Egyptian times if not forever. Use of hyperthermia in cancer treatment is of specific interest. It is known that hyperthermia therapy kills or inhibits cancer growth at or above 41 C’ but normal cells can survive temperatures of 47 C’. We take benefit of this temperature difference to kill the tumor cells and extra the normal tissues and cells.
The new machines are small, portable, relatively inexpensive comparative to other current technologies and let us deliver a ball of safely organized heat anywhere we need it into the body at a depth of 15cm. This ball of heat increases blood flow to the targeted area by about 15 times the normal rate thus, speeds up healing and the safe response. The increased blood flow to the area has been found to increase the blood ph. locally and systemically, increasing the speed of transfer of immune cells, stem cells, and oxygen to the area. The properties of the units electromagnetic field repolarizes cell membranes. All of these properties have overwhelming effects on cancer and wonderful applications in spinal cord injuries and a wide array of applications anywhere and anytime a doctor needs more blood and oxygen flow to a vital area. The future is wide open for new discovery in the field! In clinical trials doctors only preserved the primary tumor site because the Hyperthermia therapy seems to wake up the immune system and bare the metastatic tumors as foreign to the body! Once the main tumor dies as a result of the therapy, the metastatic tumors get distributed with by the immune system.
