Hyperthermia (also called thermal therapy or thermotherapy) is a type of cancer treatment in which body tissue is exposed to high temperatures (it starts at 103 up to 107°F). Research has shown high temperatures can damage cancer cells, usually with minimal injury to normal tissues.
Hyperthermia is almost always used with other forms of cancer therapy, such as oxygen, ultrasound, juicing, essential oils, and immunotherapy.
According to The British Institute Of Radiology: There is an abundance of evidence that cancer cells grown in vivo or in vitro are sensitive to elevated temperature. They achieved considerable success with the regression of tumors by educing high temperatures in cancer patients with bacterial toxins.
Furthermore, according to the European Journal of Oncology (1965) an application of moderate heat dose lead to a permanent cure of transplanted tumor without causing any damage to the surrounding normal tissue. The heat treatment causes distinct histological changes in the tumor cells without causing damage to normal cells.
Several methods of applying hyperthermia:
- Local – heat is usually applied to a small area where the tumor is located by using a far infrared heat lamp.
- Whole-body – This can be accomplished by using a chamber. Studies have shown an infrared sauna can cause cancer. Therefore to achieve hyperthermia safely experts recommend using a

Heat lamps also vary in cost, but these lamps are usually priced reasonably. The heat lamp shown here retails for $127 USD.
Hyperthermia shouldn’t be your only therapy. Rather, it should be used in conjunction with other therapies, such as juicing, essential oils, and oxygen therapy. You can find other articles about these therapies right here on our website.
