High temperatures have been used to destroy tumor cells through a treatment known as Hyperthermic Oncology. Hyperthermia is an old treatment yet new tools and more precise delivery of heat has allowed hyperthermia to be used for cancer treatment. Though rarely used, recent research is suggesting it be used by oncologists with every patient because of its immune stimulating effect.
Another reason for traditional oncologists to pay attention to heat is that hyperthermia provides synergies with most conventional treatment modalities, boosts their efficacy helping to re-sensitize previously non-effective treatments.
When suffering from a viral infection nothing in the world will give more comfort and keep you warm (which is essential for immune system strength) than a far-infrared mattress. People are getting sick, as they have been for years, except now they sound alarms for every new case of flu/cold/bronchitis/pneumonia and tally it up on the coronavirus scoreboard to fan the flame of panic.
Almost every disease condition benefits from the heavy use of infrared technology because normal core temperature is the exact temperature at which all the functions of the human body can operate with optimal efficiency. Thus the easiest, safest and most effective way of treating most disease, including the coronavirus, is to increase body temperature with infrared therapy. See my essay Low Body Temperature Symptoms, Causes and Treatment.
Evidence suggests that convenient and non-invasive infrared (FIR) rays, a vital type of physiotherapy, improves the health of patients with cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, and chronic kidney disease, all of which are preconditions that are creating serious complications for coronavirus victims, which are being mixed in with other viral, bacterial, fungal and chemical causes of lung disease.
Thermal medicine refers to the manipulation of whole body or specific tissue temperature as a prelude to, or as the main treatment of diseases. From ancient times we read ‘Give me the power to produce fever and I will cure all disease,’ and ‘If indeed any were so good a physician as to be able to produce fever, it would not be necessary to look for any other remedy in sickness.’
Heat has been used to treat various types of diseases for centuries that decreases the transmission of pain signals to the brain. There is no doubt that heat is comforting and when patients body temperature is low heat can be a life saver. Even with dying patients heat should be used to make them as comfortable as possible.
Dr. Chen-Ting Lee, Dr. Thomas Mace, and Dr. Elizabeth A. Repasky published a paper in the International Journal of Hyperthermia giving us reason to use thermal therapy in the treatment of cancer. Mild thermal stress has the opposite effect to that of hypoxia (low oxygen). Adding heat to the body is a way of increasing blood flow and oxygen delivery to the cells while enhancing cytotoxic activity of human NK cells.
Natural killer cells (also known as NK cells, K cells, and killer cells) are a type of lymphocyte (a white blood cell) and a component of innate immune system. NK cells play a major role in the host-rejection of both tumors and viral infected cells.
One of the easiest, safest and most effective way of treating disease, including cancer, is to increase body temperature with infrared therapy. It is a foundational treatment, which has profound ramifications for thyroid sufferers, patients with adrenal issues and even for people with restless leg syndrome.
98,6° F (37C) is the ideal body temperature for optimal health. That temperature is the guarantor for good blood circulation and is the mainstay for vitality and strong immune system strength. Low temperatures between 95°- 97° F is common with patients with chronic illnesses.
Increased body temperature is correlated mathematically with increased immune system strength. Normal core temperatures are at the exact temperature at which all the functions of the human body can operate with optimal efficiency. The same can be said about pH because all physiological processes are pH sensitive. Thus, body temperature is crucial to address when treating cancer or any other disease. Thermal therapy is ideal when used in combination with other therapies.
“Mild thermal therapy may have a dual benefit: direct enhancement of immune cell activity through thermally sensitive molecular pathways associated with immune cell function/activation, and, indirect enhancement of immunosurveillance through a reduction in hypoxia-induced immune suppression via improved tumor vascular perfusion.

General Effects of Thermal Therapy
Scientists in Finland have shown that sauna bathing is associated with a variety of health benefits. The latest study with 100 test subjects shows that taking a sauna bath of 30 minutes reduces blood pressure and increases vascular compliance, while also increasing heart rate similarly to medium-intensity exercise.
Researchers have also published findings indicating that regular sauna bathing is associated with a reduced risk of coronary diseases and sudden cardiac death, hypertension and Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Frequent sauna bathing has also been associated with a reduced risk of respiratory diseases and lower CRP levels.
During sauna bathing, test subjects’ heart rate increased similarly to medium-intensity exercise, and their body temperature rose by approximately 2°C giving a considerable boost to immune system strength.
If it is possible to love a medical device one will fall for their infrared Biomat because it keeps you warm on cold nights and takes away pain. Everyone deserves a Biomat just as everyone deserves love. I call them medical love machines. Biomats are that good and that helpful. I wish everyone could afford one!
The Biomats far infrared light penetrates deep into the cells warming and stimulating them with frequencies that nurture and strengthen while providing pain relief and a relaxation that is heavenly. The Biomat is a wonderful piece of therapeutic equipment that improves circulation and cardiovascular function, improves the immune system, relieves pain, burns calories, eases joint pain, and reduces stress.
Infrared Therapy – Too Good to be True for the Flu
- FIR heat expands capillaries, stimulating increased blood flow, and aiding in regeneration, improved circulation and oxygenation.
- Far infrared heat speeds cellular metabolic rates by stimulating the activity of mitochondria, and triggering enzyme activity, therefore promoting the killing of many pathogens: bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. FIR energy strengthens the immune system by stimulating increased production of white blood cells (leukocytes) by the bone marrow and killer T-cells by the thymus gland.
- Far infrared heat promotes the rebuilding of injured tissue by having a positive effect on the fibroblasts (connective tissue cells necessary for repair) and it increases the growth of cells, DNA and protein synthesis necessary during tissue repair and regeneration.
