We believe that any health condition starts and ends with the immune system and its ability to ward off disease or to rebuild and regain health. With this in mind we focus large amounts of time and energy in turning on the immune system—at every level.
One of the basic ways our body fights disease naturally is to increase its core temperature through a fever. When the body’s intelligence senses cellular danger or imposition it goes to war through an inflammatory response which sends healing cells like cytokines to the effected area or throughout the entire body; causing heat, redness and inflammation to an area (like in the case of a sliver) or fever, body aches, chills, etc. (in the case of a virus). This is a perfect way of knowing our body is doing it’s job and we are on the road to wellness.
In part, this miraculous way of warding off pathogens and other threats is what our technology is designed to focus on and recreate as part of our treatment at Life Health Centers.
One of the reasons disease is on the rise is due to the increase in anti-inflammatories and the pharmaceutical advances that allow us to turn off a fever—our body’s first line of defense—in order to go without suffering. While this is understandable since being sick is inconvenient to our normally busy and stressful lives, it is not conducive to giving our immune system practice and at least annually (suggesting a person gets a cold, flu or infection once a year) monitoring and regulating the almost constant interaction our body’s have with toxins, pathogens, and anaerobic cells of all kinds including cancer, Lyme and other serious life-threatening conditions.
It’s interesting to note that most chronically ill patients report not having a fever in many years—indicating 1. There are many layers to the immune system and 2. Their immune system is not functioning well.
Whole-body Hyperthermia is designed to “turn-on” the cascade of events that happens when the body’s core temperature is increased—a natural healing response.
Hyperthermia is defined as a temperature elevation by several degrees above the normal physiological level. Hyperthermia treatment is not new—in fact it’s very old, as old as Socrates, and has been established as a great tool for fighting disease. Currently, there are several ways medicine uses heat to handle varying conditions. However, none of them are as effective as heating the whole body and holding the core temperature at increased levels for an extended period of time.
Due to our specifically designed suit and the incorporation of PEMF technology as well as Hyper-oxygenation, we are able to reach resounding effects at lower body temperatures than previously used; this is good news for our patients who are not required to be sedated and are at minimal risk. We manage a very specific balance with heat; making sure to empower healthy cells and organisms while eliminating diseased cells and organisms—again, one of the advantages of our patented technology.
Hyperthermia is ideal as a treatment option in itself as well as being a complement for antiobiotics, allowing patients to boost the effectiveness of their medication with whole-body hyperthermia.
Life Health Centers is the only clinic in the United States that does whole-body hyperthermia. It is widely used in clinics in Asia and Europe.
