The Effects of Heat Against Cancer

by Mauris Emeka

“Hyperthermia (also called thermal therapy or thermotherapy) is a type of cancer treatment in which body tissue is exposed to high temperatures. Research has shown that high temperatures can damage and kill cancer cells, usually with minimal injury to normal tissues.

National Cancer Institute

Harvard Medical School discovered that cancer cells are vulnerable to heat and will be destroyed by temperatures over I 06 degrees Fahrenheit. The body’s normal temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Unlike cancer cells, normal cells can handle a certain amount of heat, and therefore, they are not destroyed by I06 degree Fahrenheit temperatures.

Dr. Lawrence Wilson M.D. wrote the following in the publication  Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients: “If  I were to single out one method to combat cancer, it  is the sauna. It assists with removal of chemical toxins and heavy metals, increases oxydation, and enhances the immune system …”.

Dr. Yoshimizu, M.D. is the former director of Yokohama General Hospital located in Japan.   He authored the book “The Fourth Treatment for Medical Refugees”, (copyright 2009). Chapter 3 of this book is titled “Heat the Body with Thermotherapy”, and it discusses how sufficient amounts of heat can shut down cancer cells.

How can someone challenged with cancer get enough heat into their body to turn the corner against cancer?    It has been shown that sitting is a sauna, especially  an  infrared sauna, can be of  great help. Another way to heat up cancerous  tissue deep within the body is with the use of a device called a BioMat. The BioMat is an FDA approved device that combines far infrared light and negative ion technology with the healing power of amethyst  crystals.  It puts heat as much as 6 inches into the body, and as a result it enhances blood circulation, making it easier for oxygen to circulate throughout the body. The added heat also increases white blood cells which in turn strengthens the immune system and helps detoxify the body.

Cancer cells thrive best in relatively cool temperatures of around 94 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit and NOT in temperatures of 105 to 106 degrees Fahrenheit. The BioMat can be used either professionally or at one’s home. It’s important to note that Dr. Yoshimizu’s book explains that the BioMat can be wrapped around any part of the body except for the head; and that’s because brain cells, unlike all other cells in the body, cannot handle high amounts of heat introduced deep within them.

For more information, one can go online. has several informative videos about  the BioMat  and other ways of putting heat deep into the body. There are  also well-researched articles that can be accessed online. (Incidentally, I own 3 BioMats, one full sized and two that are medium-sized, and I highly recommend them).
