Alternate Cancer Remedies
“11. Relax: The patient is encouraged to relax. As the temperature increases, breathing exercises are used, eg: Breathe in through the nose, pulling the air in with the “stomach muscles,” then out through the mouth. Swab the face, and fan with a wash cloth.
“12. Time: 20-30 minutes: It takes about 20- 30 minutes for the average patient to reach 1030- 1040 F. On the first treatment a lowered tempera- ture is attempted (1010-1020) to begin acclimatiza- tion. The final temperature is determined by what the patient feels he can tolerate.
“13. Heat the bed: Preheat the patients’ bed us- ing an electric blanket over the other blankets. Help the patient into the warmed bed and disconnect the electric blanket.
“14. Stay in warm bed: The body temperature is maintained in the bed for another 15-20 min- utes at which time the blankets are slowly removed, one by one. This cooling-off process will take about another 20 minutes. Upon leaving the tub and en- tering the bed, sips of hot herb tea are given. As the cooling-off process continues, cooler fluids (never cooler than room temperature) can be given until, at the time of completion, several glasses of orange juice are recommended.
“15. Shower: When the patient returns to his room, a lukewarm shower should be used to fur- ther assist in washing off the skin. A restful after- noon is indicated. Many sleep several hours. Regu- lar meals and juices need not be interrupted.”— ”Hyperthermia Treatment,” Gerson Primer, 4th edi- tion, 11 [3rd edition, 13].
As noted above, someone should always be
monitoring the patient; and the temperature should be continually checked so that it does not go above 102o F., measured orally.
Hotter water can generally be tolerated for
short periods, but it may cause an increase in body temperature that occurs too quickly. This may cause the treatment to be ended soon and leave the patient feeling uncomfortable.
Consult your physician before doing this
treatment if the patient has any of the following conditions: high or low blood pressure, serious illness, diabetes mellitus, multiple or muscular sclerosis.
Do not use this treatment during pregnancy.
Other individuals who may be especially sen-
sitive to heat include those with anemia, heart dis- ease, seizure disorders, or tuberculosis.
Those with cardiovascular disease should
not use hyperthermia. This especially includes those with arrhythmia (irregularity or loss of heart rhythm), tachycardia (abnormally rapid heart
rate), or severe hypertension or hypotension.
Those with temperature regulatory problems
(especially the old and very young) should not use hyperthermia.
Other reported risks of hyperthermia include
herpes outbreaks (including herpes zoster), liver toxicity, and nervous system injury.
Some substances used to induce hyperther-
mia are not recommended: blood products, vac- cines, pollens, benign forms of malaria. All such are dangerous. Only use water or warm blankets!
Do not use microwave or other forms of di-
athermy. They burn tissue around the eyes, burn the bones, and kill people with pacemakers.
Those with peripheral vascular disease or
loss of sensation are at risk of burns during hy- perthermia.
Watch for signs of hyperventilation. These
include numbness and tingling in the lips, hands, or feet. If hyperventilation occurs, reduce the bath temperature; breathe from the abdomen, not the chest, or breathe into a paper bag until the tin- gling passes. (Hyperventilation is excessively rapid breathing, which results in carbon dioxide deple- tion and fall in blood pressure and vasoconstric- tion.)
Stand slowly after finishing the treatment
and be careful, in the shower, for the cool rinse.
BREAST AND SKIN CANCER APPLICATIONS
Note to researchers: Aspects are noted here which should be given special scrutiny for possible beneficial effects.
In the late 1980s, researchers discovered that women develop breast cancer far more frequently in certain localities than in others. Analyzing them, it was discovered that they are those areas where there tends to be less sunlight throughout the year. For example, northwestern California, the west- ern slopes of Oregon and Washington, and the Northeast had a far greater number of breast can- cer cases than did Florida, Texas, Arizona, and southern California. The solution: Take sunbaths from time to time, throughout the year. Sunlight is important for maintaining good health, purify- ing the body, and resisting infection.
Breast cancer occurs more often in women who started menstruating early in their youth, had a late menopause, gave birth later in life, had a fam- ily history of breast cancer, developed obesity af- ter menopause, and/or had a history of alcohol- ism and eating a high-fat diet.
Research indicates that those who take oral contraceptives are three times more likely to de- velop breast cancer. Silican (used in breast im- plants) causes cancer in test animals. Those who
