Hyperthermia treatment* goes back to the second half of the 20th century. When it was first observed how tumors reduced in size following high fevers. Extensive studies over the past 30 years have shown that prolonged periods with body temperatures above approximately 41.6 °C/ 106.88 °F activate various processes, such as triggering the destruction of cancer cells. So This therapy is increasingly being applied in oncological treatment programs around the world. Therefore, The effectiveness of hyperthermia treatment has also been demonstrated at our hospital in patients suffering from the long-term effects of chronic Lyme disease.
In fact, The effect of hyperthermia in the treatment of tumors is now well understood. Unlike in healthy cells, cancer cell metabolism is anaerobic. In case This difference results in these cells dying under high fever as they are unable to withstand the heat.
The effect is similar in the treatment of Lyme disease. However, The Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium is thermolabile and has difficulty withstanding high fever. So It dies at a temperature of 41.6 °C/ 106.88 °F.
At the same time, the elevated temperature activates macrophages (cells that engulf and digest microbes) within the body, which can eliminate the bacteria.
The few contraindications for hyperthermia treatment include:
A range of cardiovascular problems, hypotension, tachycardia, arrhythmias, etc. can occur during treatment, although these can be reduced to a minimum through careful preparation.
We have carried out whole-body hyperthermia more than 18,000 times in the last twenty years, and side effects such as these have only occurred in less than one percent of cases.
Because the blood vessels expand during the healing phase, a slight drop in blood pressure is often observed. Therefore, This can be countered through increased fluid replacement or the use of volume replacement solutions.
Therefore, Seizures are extremely rare and treated with intravenous diazepam(Lyme Center). So With proper positioning, only about three percent of patients experience lesions caused by thermal pressure. Burning on urination is normal within the first 36 hours, but requires treatment in protracted cases. But Careful selection of patients in compliance with the above recommendations can reduce the risks associated with systemic whole-body hyperthermia to a minimum. In general, this form of therapy considered to be highly effective and well-tolerated.
The St. George Hospital treatment program
We have successfully treated more than 800 patients with chronic Lyme disease and seen their dramatic improvement, as the bacteria, wherever they located in the body, were killed by whole-body hyperthermia, immediately stopping the production of neurotoxins. We have also developed our own tailored detoxification programs for the elimination of neurotoxins. The endocrine disorders that are often present in chronic Lyme diseases such as hypothyroidism, adrenal insufficiency, or sexual disorders also need to be addressed.
As chronic Lyme(Lyme Center) disease is multisystemic and can mimic a wide variety of diseases, treatment can also be complex. However, the focus is on the elimination of Borrelia through whole-body hyperthermia. Thus Everything else follows from this and serves to secure the success achieved by whole-body hyperthermia and return the patient to life, after what has often been a long history of suffering.
