From Ancient Greece to Modern
Japanese and European Hyperthermic
Hyperthermia or heat therapy using
Far infrared (FIR), sometimes combined with other
methods, is used worldwide in many different
countries to help combat disease, including cancer
- sarcomas, skin tumors and carcinomas of the
breasts, prostate, ovaries, lung, stomach and
skin. The temperature of the cancer tissue is
elevated by heat energy - normally 107 to 113
degree range - to weaken and combat malignant
Far Infrared radiant healing devices produce
heat energy, which is then radiated directly to
the body from a very close distance between the
device and the body area being targeted (far
infrared loses intensity the farther away it is
from the body). Far Infrared heat travels in a
straight line and penetrates the body to a depth
of 2-2 1/2 inches and is an absolutely safe and
natural treatment with no side effects.
has been known for many centuries that heat
helps the body combat and destroy illness and
disease including malignant cell activity.
Unfortunately, the enthusiasm of modern American
cancer research for this natural healing
modality has been lukewarm and sporadic until
recently. It has been the alternative health
community and innovative hyperthermic
oncologists that have kept the access open for
patients, particularly in countries such as
Europe (Germany), and Asia (Japan).

History Of Hyperthermia:
Hyperthermia is a method of targeting
cancer that has a long history, dating back to
around 3000 B.C. The term hyperthermia is a
combination of two Greek words: hyper (rise) and
therme (heat) and refers to the increasing of body
temperature or selected tissues in order to
achieve a precise therapeutic effect.
Heat Therapy in the Ancient Times.
The use of high temperature as a method of
treatment of various diseases was common in
various cultures since ancient times. Primarily,
the heat had sacral meaning and was associated
with the healing power of the Sun. Therefore, it
was used for the treatment of locally affected
human body parts or the whole organism. For that
purpose, hot water and sand (mud baths) from
natural thermal springs, and hot air and steam
occurring in volcanic caves were utilized.
The first known use of heat treatment was carried
out by an Egyptian aruspice named Imhotep
(2655 – 2600 B.C.). The Edwin Smith
Papyrus from about 1700 B.C., which is
probably a copy of a thousand year old text,
reports that the ancient Egyptians used the
so-called "fire drills" (hot blades and sticks)
for breast cancer. These protocols involved the
burning of cancerous cells and had nothing to do
with elevated body temperature. It is worth noting
that the local and systemic hyperthermic methods
were also very popular in ancient China and India.
In ancient Greece and Rome many physicians shared
the opinion that knowledge how to control human
body temperature will allow them to cure all
diseases, including cancer, whose pathology was
well known and described in those days. For
example, the Greek philosopher Parmenides (ca.
540 – ca. 470 B.C.) was deeply convinced of
the effectiveness of hyperthermia as evidenced by
the words: “Give me the power to produce fever
and I will cure all diseases”.
This view was shared by Hippocrates (460 – 370
B.C.), a Greek philosopher and scientist who
is considered the “father of medicine”. He claimed
that the disease must be incurable if it can not
be cured by using heat. Moreover, Hippocrates
successfully used heat to target breast tumors.
His medical practice was based on the philosophy
of ancient Greece, which attributed the fire to
the highest level of intelligence and freedom.
Heat therapy was recommended after unsuccessful
trials of surgery and when known drugs and other
methods failed. This conviction is well
illustrated by the words of Hippocrates: "What
medicines to not heal, the lance will; what the
lance does not heal, fire will".
Belief in the curative effect of fever was also
shared by Celsus (ca. 25 B.C. - 45 A.D.),
a Roman author of the first systematic treatise on
medicine "De Medicina" and Rufus of Ephesus,
a Greek physician who lived at the turn of the 1st
and 2nd century. Celsus described the hot baths as
a tool in the treatment of various diseases.
the 19th century German
physicians observed regression of sarcoma in
patients who suffered prolonged high fevers due
to infectious disease. In NY, William Coley,
a famous oncologist at the time, used
immunotherapy toxins produced by a German
pharmaceutical company, known as Coley's toxins,
to induce fever (hyperthermia), and in multiple
documented cases, successfully attack many types
of cancer, from 1893 thru 1963. He thus showed
again what has been recognized for centuries,
that elevated body temperature for 30 minutes to
several hours, may be used as a therapy for
cancer and other diseases. It must be noted that
for various reasons, including the development
of radiation and chemotherapy at this time, the
medical establishment and the FDA were extremely
critical and opposed.
Coley Review, Post Graduate Medical Journal:
the 1960's, some researchers confirmed
that cancer cells are more vulnerable to heat
than their normal counterparts. In the U.S. the
hegemony of the three official modalities -
surgery, radiation and chemotherapy - lasted
until the 70's, when hyperthermia was taken off
the ACS blacklist (Unproven Therapies List). In
the late 70's and early 80's several trials
showed that hyperthermia combined with radiation
produced superior results over radiation alone.

updated whilst being used all over the world to
combat cancer, most notably by hyperthermic
oncology institutes and clinics in Germany. Published data worldwide has

1) Klinic St. Georg in
Germany - www.klinik-st-georg.de/e/therapies/hyperthermia/index.html -
uses hyperthermic oncology to increase the
permeability and receptivity of tumor cells to
chemotherapy. Hyperthermia therapy is a very
gentle but nevertheless very effective protocol
and is one of the basic elements of the integrated
cancer therapy concept of Klinic St. Georg. During
hyperthermia therapy, tumerous tissue is heated
using different techniques.
As a result:
- The cancer cells are
damaged and weakened.
- The blood and oxygen supply is reduced, causing
an increase of cancer cell death.
- The body's own immunological defense mechanisms
Hyperthermia is applied
alone, or recommended by some experimental Western
oncologists to be given in in combination with
radiation or chemotherapy. Hyperthermia is also
used successfully in the aftercare for secondary
cancer prevention. Metastasis and tumors that are
inoperable or resistant to other protocols can be
influenced favorably by Hyperthermia.

Hyperthermic Oncology in Europe.
For nearly three
decades, oncologists in Europe have gathered
together to discuss the use of hyperthermia to
treat cancer, as well as actually implementing
it. The two most prominent groups being "The
International Clinical Hyperthermia Society" and
"The European Society for Hyperthermic Oncology
"The object of the European Society for
Hyperthermic Oncology (ESHO) is to promote for
the public benefit, fundamental and applied
research in physics, engineering, biological and
clinical sciences relating to the use of
hyperthermia in cancer therapy.
Moreover, the society wants to facilitate
integration and exchange of information between
different disciplines in the study of the
biological effects of heat in the treatment of
cancer either alone or combined with other
cancer treatment modalities.
The European Society for Hyperthermic Oncology
was established in 1987 in England. In 1992, the
registered office of the Society was transferred
to The Netherlands.

meeting in Munich, Germany, 2013:
"Over the last years, the field of clinical
Hyperthermia has become increasingly dynamic.
Results of phase II and III studies as well as
new findings in basic research have firmly
established Hyperthermia as a protocol option in
conjunction with standard regimens in the field

Oncothermia developed in Germany, stems
from Hyperthermia. Oncothermia is a Hungarian
invention from 1988, connected to the
bioelectric ideas of a Hungarian Nobel Laureate
for discovery of Vitamin C, Albert Szentgyorgyi.
German, Hungarian and Japanese scientists and
engineers have partnered up together conducting
ongoing research and development, distributing
this method worldwide. Known as the Oncotherm
Group, they hold International symposiums in
Europe and have multiple publications available
for personal research.
Heat Therapy Clinical Trials:
'"In trials reported in the May 2005 Journal
of Clinical Oncology, Theodore De Weese, a
radiation oncologist at Johns Hopkins
University, showed that heat therapy could
amplify radiation's effects. The scientists
recruited 109 cancer patients with superficial
tumors, such as those in the skin of the head,
neck, or breast. Half the patients received
radiation alone, and the other half received
radiation plus two weekly sessions of
several months, the researchers found that about
two-thirds of the patients in the hyperthermia
group showed no lingering signs of their cancer.
In contrast, only 42 percent of patients receiving
just radiation had that response." - www.sciencenews.org/articles/20061014/bob10.asp

citations on hyperthermia from all over
the world. Here is just one from The
