Infrared Saunas and Cancer Therapy


Research shows that a 2% increase in body temperature results in a 40% increase in immunity.  Even more amazing, cancer cells die at 109 degrees.  In repeated infrared sauna treatments, cancer cells become weaker and immune function gets stronger, as tumor cells die away.


Dr. Nobuhiro Yoshimizu, M.D., wrote a book titled The Fourth Treatment Medical Refugees, which is about helping cancer patients who have failed traditional medical treatment.  According to Dr. Yoshimizu, advantages of infrared heat therapy include:

  • Body defense mechanisms are strengthened
  • Immune functions improve against infection
  • Blood flow improves which aids drug efficacy
  • Higher body temperature produces healthier cells and breakdown of fatty acids
  • Increased detoxification as waste materials are excreted with sweat
  • endorphin production increases which helps alleviate pain

Dr. Yoshimizu also reported that one-third of patients whose cancer was cured naturally, experienced high fever.  Hyperthermia also helps kill abnormal cells Tumors tolerate heat poorly, so raising body temperature impedes their growth.  Heat also disables or kills cells mutated by radiation or damaged by other toxins.

In a clinical study published in The Journal of Cancer Therapy, scientists studied far infrared's effects on human cancer cells in vitro and on cancer cells in mice.  Far infrared therapy reduced tumor volumes 86% in 30 days.
