There is a significant correlation between having cancer and having low body temperature. The direction of causation is not known, but we do know that chronic low body temperature is a serious health concern in itself.
A healthy human immune system is always responding to stresses, such as infection and abnormal cell mutation. The response consists of many complex chemical reactions, but when the body temperature is low, these reactions occur more slowly.
A fever speeds these reactions and allows the immune system to go into overdrive, but a chronic low body temperature is exactly the opposite. The immune system is trying to fight, but it’s in slow motion.
The BioMat is uniquely effective at raising core body temperature because of its very long wavelength (12 micron) light output. This light penetrates 6-8 inches into the body, warming it equally throughout.
Here is an interesting article by Dr. David Jernigan about the relationship between cancer and low body temperature.
There may also be a more direct way that FIR therapy can aid in the treatment of some cancers. Tumors generally do not have a very good network of capillaries running through them, because they are just unstructured masses of replicating cells. Without these capillaries, they cannot easily expel excess heat out towards the surface of the body. Because of this, in many cases, elevated temperatures can damage tumors before damaging healthy tissue.
This is called the hyperthermia treatment strategy. Some cancer clinics use BioMat for this purpose. The general method is to use the BioMat Professional under the patient, and the MiniMat on top, to isolate the area of concern. Both mats are turned to the highest setting, for 45 minutes to an hour per treatment.
There is a fascinating book titled The 4th Treatment for Medical Refugees that goes into more detail about a clinic in Japan that had success with this method. We can send a copy of this book to you upon request, in electronic format, or in print.
