This information on therapeutic baths comes from two books by Paavo
Airola, Ph.D., N.D. The first section is from his book Cancer Causes,
Prevention and Treatment, The Total Approach, Health Plus Publishers,
Sherwood, Oregon, 1993. His books present many other types of
therapeutic baths than are discussed here. It is good to have alternative
treatments for cancer that do not involve eating, because nausea or cancers
of the digestive system may make eating difficult.
Artificially Induced Fever
"Give me a chance to create a fever and I will cure any disease," said the
great ancient physician Parmenides. Many modern giants of biological
medicine in Europe, such as the Nobel Prize winner, Dr. A. Lwoff,41 famous
German cancer specialist, Prof. Werner Zabel,42 and the director of the
most successful cancer clinic in the world, the Ringberg-Klinik, Dr. Josef
Issels, use artificially induced fever in their battle against cancer.42
Dr. Werner Zabel told the following true story, which illustrates the cancer-
preventive and cancer-healing effect of artificially induced fever:
Not far from Rome, Italy, there were huge swampy areas called the Pontine
Swamps. These swamps were excellent breeding grounds for malaria
mosquitoes, and the whole area was affected by malaria.
Then, by government action, the Pontine Swamps were drained and dried
out. As a result malaria completely disappeared. But Italian medical
researchers made a remarkable observation. While earlier the whole
malaria-infected area was completely free from cancer, now, one
generation later, it had the same prevalence of cancer as the rest of Italy.
The scientists concluded that the frequent fever attacks common in malaria
stimulated the body's own defenses so that cancer could not develop.
Fever has been too long a misunderstood and mistreated symptom. Most
orthodox doctors try to combat and suppress fever. Actually fever is a
constructive, health-promoting symptom, initiated and created by the body in
its own effort to fight infections and other conditions of disease and to
restore health. High temperature speeds up metabolism, inhibits the growth
of invading virus or bacteria and accelerates the healing processes.
In folk medicine in various parts of the world fever has been used for
centuries to heal disease. In the West Indies, natives afflicted with syphilis or
cancer cured themselves by deliberately subjecting themselves to infection
from such high fever diseases as malaria, typhus fever or typhoid fever.
Dr. A. Lwoff, famous French bacteriologist, has demonstrated in repeated

scientific experiments that fever is indeed a "great medicine," and that it can
help to cure many "incurable diseases". In biological clinics in Europe,
artificially induced fever, mostly in the form of overheating baths, has been
used successfully to treat such conditions as rheumatic diseases, skin
disorders, insomnia, arthritis - and cancer. Dr. Josef Issels has said,
"Artificially induced fever has the greatest potential in the treatment of many
diseases, including cancer." Mark well that this remark is made by one of
the leading cancer specialists in the world!
The usual method of inducing fever is the so-called Schlenzbath.43 The
patient is totally immersed in a large bathtub filled with water between 100-
102 degrees Fahrenheit. Only the nose and mouth are left free for breathing.
In about half an hour, the body's temperature will gradually rise to match the
temperature of the water.
Needless to say, treatment should be given by the nurse and should be well
supervised. The temperature of the water and of the patient, and the
patient's pulse, should be checked periodically. Detailed instructions for
administering the Schlenz-bath are given in my book, How To Get Well.43

The following section comes from the book by Paavo Airola, Ph.D., N.D.,
How to Get Well, Health Plus Publishers, Sherwood, Oregon, 1993. The
letters "N.D." after Dr. Airola's name indicate that he is a "Naturopathic

THERAPEUTIC BATHS
How to use or administer overheating baths, sitz baths,
sauna, hot-and-cold shower, Kneipp baths, salt water baths, etc.
Water has been used for remedial purposes since time immemorial. Natives
in various parts of the earth, sought the healing effect of natural waters,
mineral springs, sea water, rivers and springs. When medical science saw its
birth, healing disease with water was recognized as one of the most
important therapeutic modalities. Hippocrates, Celus, Galen and other
ancient greats of medicine praised water for its many curative properties. In
all major ancient civilizations, bathing was held in esteem not only for its
remedial properties, but as an important health-building and disease-
preventive measure.
In modern times, the therapeutic properties of water were popularized by
Father Kneipp, Maria Schlenz, Priessnitz, and other European water-cure
pioneers. There are hundreds of Spas and "Bads" in most European
countries where therapeutic baths are used as a major healing measure,
especially so-called Kneipp-baths. As Father Kneipp said, "Water contains
great healing power" - and millions of yearly visitors to these "bads" can

Here are some therapeutic baths that can be employed in healing the sick
and in preventing disease. Some of these, like overheating baths, should be
supervised by a doctor or nurse, but most can be employed in a do-it-
yourself manner in your own home.
OVERHEATING THERAPY
"Give me a chance to create fever and I will cure any disease," said the
great physician, Parmenides, 2,000 years ago.
Fever is one of the body's own defensive and healing forces, created and
sustained for the deliberate purpose of restoring health. The high
temperature speeds up metabolism, inhibits the growth of the invading virus
or bacteria, and literally burns the enemy with heat. Fever is an effective
protective and healing measure not only against colds and simple infections,
but against such serious diseases as polio and cancer. In biological clinics,
overheating therapies or artificially induced fever are used effectively in the
treatment of acute infectious diseases, arthritis and rheumatic diseases, skin
disorders, insomnia, muscular pain and cancer, to name a few conditions.
Such giants of medical science as Nobel Prize Winner, Dr. A. Lwoff, Dr.
Werner Zabel, and Dr. Josef Issels, recommend and use fever therapies
extensively. Recently, a research team under the direction of Dr. David S.
Muchles, from Oxford University, reported that the studies confirmed what
ancient physicians and biological doctors knew all along - that fever is
effective in combating many diseases, including cancer.
There are many ways to induce fever. Some doctors use certain vaccines
(like BCG) or drugs to create artificial fever. Personally, I prefer a more
natural approach. Although fever induced with BCG or drugs can have a
beneficial effect by "waking up" and stimulating the body's natural defensive
and immunological mechanism, there is less stress on the body if fever is
induced with an overheating bath. Schlenz-bath has been used for this
purpose for nearly a century.
SCHLENZ-BATH
Here's how the curative Schlenz-bath is administered. First, the patient
should not eat for at least two hours before treatment. If possible, the
bladder and the colon should be emptied. The bath tub should be as large
and as deep as possible. If a regular American bath tub is used, you may
need to plug the emergency outlet to raise the water to the top of the tub.
The patient must be totally covered with water, including his head; only his
nose, eyes and mouth - and as little as possible of them should be left
uncovered. Start with a low temperature of about 95 degrees, or about the
temperature of the skin. Let warm water run slowly from the faucet and stir
constantly. In 15 to 20 minutes, bring the temperature in the tub to about 100
degrees; later to about 103 or even slightly higher, depending on the
patient's reaction.

treatment without
consultation with
a physician.
Some health
professionals say
that pregnant
women should
not undergo
detoxification
because toxins
released from fat
stores can
expose the fetus.
In Finland,
pregnant women
are said to enjoy
saunas without
difficulty, and
even find them
relaxing places to
give birth.
We suggest that
any girl who
plans to become
a mother should
take care not to
allow toxic
chemicals to
build up in her
body, and should
enjoy regular
detoxification
(such as saunas)
as part of her
healthy lifestyle
prior to becoming
pregnant.
Health problems
that can be
helped by saunas
include cancer,
ADD/ADHD,
fibromyalgia,
chemical
exposures,
The length of the treatment is about one hour. Although the temperature of
the water is not too high, when the patient is totally covered by the water
there is no heat escaping from the body and its temperature will invariably
rise to match the temperature of the water.
The Schlenz-bath, if given to sick patients, must be supervised. The pulse
should not go over 130 or 140. The temperature of the water should be
monitored at all times with a bath thermometer. If the patient feels any
discomfort, he should be raised out of the water to a sitting position for a
while. It is also recommended that the nurse massage the patient with a
bristle brush during the bath. This brings the blood to the surface of the skin
and relieves the heart from undue pressure.
SAUNA
A sauna, or Finnish steam bath, is another excellent way to benefit from
overheating therapy. In addition to an artificially induced fever, which a
prolonged steam bath always accomplishes, the sauna bath is specifically
conducive to profuse therapeutic sweating.
The skin is our largest eliminative organ - "the third kidney." It is generally
considered that the skin should eliminate 30 percent of the body wastes by
way of perspiration. Due to lack of physical work and an overly sedentary
life, the skin of most people today has degenerated as an eliminative organ,
since it is hardly ever subjected to sweating. If health is to be restored, it is of
vital importance that the eliminative activity of the skin is revitalized. Taking
sauna or steam baths regularly, once or twice a week, will help to restore
and revitalize the cleansing activity of the skin.
The therapeutic property of the sauna is attributed to the following facts:
Overheating stimulates and speeds up the metabolic processes and
inhibits the growth of virus and bacteria.
All the vital organs and glands are stimulated to increased activity.
The body's healing forces are aided and assisted, and healing is
accelerated.
The eliminative, detoxifying and cleansing capacity of the skin is
dramatically increased by the profuse sweating.
DO-IT-YOURSELF SAUNA
If you do not have your own sauna, and have no easy access to a sauna,
you can make a do-it-yourself sauna in your own bedroom, as follows:
First take a hot bath, as hot as you can stand. Then dry yourself and wrap in
a heavy bath towel. Put a plastic or rubber sheet on your bed to protect it
from damage by perspiration. Lie on the rubber sheet, take a couple of
hotwater bottles and cover yourself with an electric blanket, turned on high,
leaving just a crack for breathing. Use several heavy blankets, if necessary.
Remain in bed while profuse sweating occurs half an hour or more. Finish
with a shower.

NOTE: Although fever is a natural, constructive, beneficial symptom, and
fever therapy is one of the most effective means in the arsenal of biological
modalities, I must stress the fact that fever therapy should always be
supervised by an expert practitioner and undertaken on the advice of a
doctor. The patient's heart condition, his ability to perspire and his general
vitality should be checked and his reaction during the therapy closely
supervised. Also, the length of the overheating therapy, and the dosage of
fever-inducing drugs (if they are used), should be determined by the doctor.
The above warning is in regard to patients who are ill. There is, of course, no
danger for healthy people to take sauna or other steam or hot baths, or even
a Schlenz-bath, on a regular basis as a preventive, cleansing and health-
building measure, as millions of people are doing both here and in Europe.
End of excerpts from writings of Paavo Airola, Ph.D., N.D. We highly
recommend that you obtain and read Dr. Airola's books.
The Thermometer
Hyperthermia is a hit or miss affair without a good thermometer. After
looking in several drug stores without success for a bath thermometer,
we found a satisfactory thermometer at a Pool & Spa store. We
compared the readings from several thermometers in the rack to make
sure they all produced the same result. The one we selected floats, has
large lines and numbers so it is easy to read, has scales for both
Fahrenheit and Celcius, and cost less than $10. The 38 C mark lines
up with 100 F, the 42 C mark lines up with 108 F and we keep our
bath water hovering right in this temperature range while we soak up
the warmth. These temperatures are only slightly above body
temperature and are not hot. The secret is nearly total immersion.
This simple thermometer has converted our bath tub into a state-of-the-
art whole body hyperthermia system. Remarkable!
For best results:
(Optional) Fill your tub from the shower if it is equipped with a
filter to remove chlorine. Or go to a pet store and buy chlorine -
neutralizing drops sold for fish tanks.
(Optional) Add epsom salts to the bath water to create a mineral
bath. You might also add a pint of 3% hydrogen peroxide to
oxygenate and sanitize the water for multiple users.
If necessary, block the bathtub overflow hole (duct tape works
well) so that the water is deep enough to cover the entire body.
Scrub your body from time to time during your bath to remove
dead skin and open the pores.

Heat the Brain?
Ayurveda suggests that it is not good to heat the brain. The Ayurvedic
heat treatment called swedena heats the body but not the head.
However, we should keep in mind that Ayurveda places GREAT
emphasis on PREVENTION of disease and maintenance of good
health. Anyone who enjoys swedena and other Ayurvedic preventive
treatments regularly will probably not get cancer.
It takes many years for a cancer tumor to grow large enough for you to
notice. During these years there is a good chance the tumor has been
shedding cells and the cancer has metastasized to many other
locations in your body, including the brain. If this has happened and you
survive long enough, you will find these tumors sprouting like
mushrooms all over the place. Whole body hyperthermia will heat these
cancer cells wherever they may be.
Therefore, our conclusion is that when using hyperthermia to prevent
disease, follow the Ayurvedic rule and do not heat the brain. However,
when using hyperthermia to fight cancer, there is a good chance that
the cancer has already spread to the brain. Exposing the brain to low
temperature hyperthermia seems safer than the higher temperatures
(140F or more) found in traditional saunas.
On the other hand, purists who refuse to heat their brain can take
recourse in the abscopal effect. The abscopal effect appears only in
the presence of a functioning immune system. The abscopal effect is
when treating cancer in one area of the body results in cancer in other
areas of the body also shrinking. This is due to the treated area
reducing the burden on the immune system, releasing immune system

We suggest you obtain a thermometer and follow Dr. Airola's
therapeutic bath instructions carefully, or buy / build yourself a sauna.
Infrared Sauna
If you are interested in purchasing a home sauna, you might have a
look at infrared saunas. There are two kinds of heat - convection heat
and radiant heat. Convection heat uses a medium such as air to carry
warmth from the heat source to your body. Radiant heat uses a
frequency of light that resonates with water molecules. This frequency
of light is called "infrared". Infrared heat is safe, being the same kind of
heat that warms you in sunlight or in front of a fire. If you have ever held
your hand over a flashlight, you will know that light penetrates the body.
Unlike convection heat which just warms the skin, infrared penetrates
several centimeters below the surface of the body. Due to this deep
heating effect, an infrared sauna produces much more sweat.
In the past we have recommended "far infrared saunas", however we
now find that there may be possible harm from electromagnetic
radiation coming from certain electronic components. There are far
infrared saunas that do not produce excessive electromagnetic
radiation and these are fine. However, you do need to test the sauna
with a trifield meter before purchasing it. When using a trifield meter,
look for ELF radiation readings of 2 milligauss or less where you will be
sitting in the sauna. More than two milligauss may cause harm to the
body. Once you have the meter you can also test your home
(particularly where you sleep), workplace, car, etc. Aluminum window
mesh has been reported to be effective to shield some sources of
excessive electromagnetic radiation. There are now many saunas on
the Internet that are reported to measure at a safe level 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,
7.
Also OK is a sauna that uses standard infrared light bulbs that produce
abundant heat without the electromagnetic radiation. 1, 2

There are a growing number of testimonials regarding a product called
"Bio-Mat". The Bio-Mat uses amethyst crystals to generate far infrared
waves that penetrate several inches into the body. Even on a low
setting, which is about body temperature, there are still reported to be
benefits from the far infrared energy. People, including children, are

Mitochondria apparently benefit from exposure to far infrared light.
Mitochondria metabolize oxygen and fuel (glucose/fats) to produce
cellular energy. The part of the body that uses the most energy is the
brain. Mitochondrial malfunction is implicated in diseases of the

Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and bipolar disorder.
Mitochondria defects are also implicated in cancer.

Male Birth Control
The low temperatures (108F / 42C) recommended for hyperthermia
should not affect male fertility. However, Dr. Voegel from Switzerland
found that higher temperatures could be intentionally used to create
temporary male sterilization. Dr. Voegel found that immersing the testes
only in a 116F bath for 45 minutes daily for three weeks would result in
temporary sterility for six months.
According to Dr. David Williams Alternatives newsletter October 2002,
during the 1930's through the 1950's Dr. Voegel "taught hundreds of
men this procedure to help them keep from getting their wives
pregnant...During the 20 years he practiced this technique, he found no
adverse effects. Some individuals were able to sustain temperatures as
high as 125 degrees F, but 116 degrees F was comfortable enough to
be tolerated by everyone, and it reliably kept the men infertile for six
months. After the six months, their fertility would either gradually return
to normal, or they could repeat the process for another six months of
protection. In the mid-1950's, the Japanese government expressed an
interest in Dr. Voegel's work, and after careful studies and evaluations
of their own, they found the technique to be very effective...This may
sound like a lot of trouble or inconvenience, but it's another one of
these low-tech tools that costs little, works, and can be used anywhere
by anyone."

Hyperthermia gives cancer a triple whammy by:
1. removing accumulations of stored toxic chemicals that cause cancer
2. improving circulation so that tissues are both nourished with oxygen and

flushed of acidic metabolic wastes
3. weakening or even killing cancer cells that have a lower tolerance for heat
than healthy cells.
This makes regular hyperthermia an excellent addition to a healthy cancer-
preventing lifestyle and a useful part of a comprehensive program to remove
cancer. Hyperthermia to detoxify the body is most effective if used together
with exercise and enhanced nutrition.
It is possible to overdo a good thing. "In the tissue culture the cancer cell will
be damaged by a temperature of 39 C. and dies at 42 C.; the normal cell
will be damaged by 43 C. and dies at 46-47 C." - Professor Lambert,
quoted in Gerson page 45. Cancer cells damaged by hyperthermia are much
more easily killed by other means, so hyperthermia works well as a
complementary therapy.
If you are using hyperthermia for therapeutic purposes find a doctor to work
with who knows about hyperthermia. Also, if you are having a sauna
frequently, be sure to supplement your diet with calcium, magnesium and
trace minerals to replace beneficial minerals lost in the sweat.
"For many patients, battling cancer has also meant fighting constant pain, or
relying on strong narcotics like demerol or morphine derivatives.
Hyperthermia is an excellent alternative to the use of these addictive drugs.
Not only it is an effective cancer treatment, but it often dramatically
reduces pain which allows for better quality of life. Subsequently, this
enables many people to devote more energy to their fight against cancer." -
Valley Cancer Institute
We find that a hot bath (108F / 42C) is very effective to relieve pain,
nausea and other discomfort. Since it is free and simple, why not give it a
try? Hyperthermia is on our list of non-drug ways to deal with cancer pain.
Chelators bond to a toxic metal ion and form a stable complex that can be
removed from the body. The herb cilantro helps remove metals such as
mercury, lead and aluminum from the body. Cilantro is a kind of parsley
and is widely available in grocery stores. The seeds of the cilantro plant are
commonly known as "coriander". Chop the cilantro finely and mix in soups
and salads to cleanse these metals from your body. Malic acid (found in
apples and apple cider vinegar) helps remove aluminum from the body.
Other natural chelators include vitamin C, sulphur-containing amino acids
such as methionine and cysteine (whey powder is a good source of these
amino acids), yellow dock root, and chlorella.
Iodine chelates metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium and aluminum
and halogens such as fluoride and bromide. Iodine also removes
perchlorate (rocket fuel) from the body. In the United States, perchlorate
frequently contaminates drinking water, milk, and other foods. There are
many health benefits from increased iodine intake, either from consuming
potassium iodide, or from rubbing tincture of iodine on the skin so that the
body can absorb what it needs through the skin. We take an Iodoral tablet
31/07/14 18:16 Alkalize For Health - Hyperthermia Helps Prevent and Remove Cancer! - Cancer Alternatives
Page 10 of 14 http://www.alkalizeforhealth.net/therapeuticbaths.htm
daily. Iodoral contains both elemental iodine and potassium iodide in a
quantity similar to that which the Japanese people receive daily from
consuming seaweed.
Alpha lipoic acid helps remove mercury from inside cells and the brain.
The mercury is then carried to the liver where it is mixed with bile, and then
goes into the intestinal tract. Sulfur-rich foods can bind with mercury in the
intestinal tract so that it is not reabsorbed by the body. Algin is a non-
digestible fiber from brown seaweeds such as kelp. Algin will also bind with
mercury in the digestive tract, and will also bind with cadmium and
radioactive materials. Other intestinal chelators include spirulena, chlorella,
aloe, and bentonite clay.
Increasing the amount of glutathione in your body will help remove heavy
metals such as mercury, lead and cadmium while increasing lifespan by up
to 40%. Eating whey powder is a good way to increase your glutathione
level. Heavy metals and other toxins stored in the liver and gall bladder as
"stones" can be voided via the colon when you do a liver and gall bladder
"cleanse" or "flush". You can do a search of the Internet to learn how to do
this.
You can purchase or build your own home sauna. By regularly enjoying
a prolonged (45 to 90 minute) low temperature (about 108F / 42C)
sauna, copious quantities of waste are removed from the body in the
sweat. The result is a cleaner body and much softer, healthier skin.
Since hyperthermia is the safest, most efficacious and economical
way of removing heavy metals and toxic chemicals from the body,
we regard some means to accomplish this (sauna / hot tub / bath
tub) as a household necessity.
Whirlpool Bath Not Recommended
At first we thought that a whirlpool bath would be better than a hot tub
because the water is changed for each user. However, it turns out that
there is a problem with whirlpool baths due to water being retained in
the piping and jets. This unclean water is a breeding ground for bacteria
and fungi. When you fill the bath and turn on the jets, the clean water is
immediately contaminated with the bacterial soup from the jets.
A test of 43 whirlpool baths found that all were contaminated.
Contaminants included fecal bacteria, Pseudomonas, Legionella, and
Staphylococcus. A teaspoon of normal tap water contains 138 bacteria.
A teaspoon of whirlpool tub water contained 2.7 million bacteria.
The bacteria identified in whirlpool baths can cause Legionnaire's

disease, septicemia (infection of the blood), endocarditis (infection of
the surface of the heart), gastroenteritis (infection of the gastrointestinal
tract), osteomyelitis (infection of the bones), carbuncles, septic arthritis,
toxic shock syndrome, Pontiac fever, pneumonia, scalded skin
syndrome, and general infections of the intestines, respiratory tract,
eyes and ears.
One hundred and fifty people caught Legionnaire's disease and 16 died
after passing by a whirlpool bath on display at a Dutch flower show.

Editor's note: Millions of whirlpool bath tubs have been sold. If you have
unexplained or recurring skin conditions and other infections, perhaps
your whirlpool tub is the cause. If you do not have a whirlpool bath, we
recommend you do not buy one. The whirlpool bath needs to be
redesigned so that all water drains from the piping and jets when the
tub is emptied.
For more information do a search of the Internet. Look for hyperthermia,
fever therapy, sauna, sauna therapy, far infrared sauna, BioToxic Reduction
Program (BTR), Zane R. Gard, M.D. (founder of the BTR Program),
UltraClear (for hepatic detoxification), EDTA chelation therapy (to remove
heavy metals from the body such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and excessive
iron & copper), HMD - Heavy Metal Detox, etc. There are also several
articles in our Library.
Essential oils may assist in detoxifying the body.
Also, Amazon.com carries several books on saunas. Type "sauna" into the
Amazon.com search engine on our "Contents" page and see what comes

There are many studies showing increased survival from cancer among
those treated with hyperthermia. Why stop the treatment when it can be so
easily done at home? Here is a simple and inexpensive do-it-yourself
procedure that can help prevent cancer, treat cancer and prevent the
recurrence of cancer. Everyone should do it regularly.
Antiperspirant, as the name clearly indicates, prevents you from
perspiring, thereby inhibiting the body from purging toxins from below
the armpits. These toxins do not just magically disappear.
If your sweat smells bad, perhaps you should think in terms of helping
the body remove the substances from the body by means of techniques
to facilitate sweating, rather than trying to prevent sweating.
Also, bacteria feeding on nutrients in sweat produce waste products
that cause body odor. Colloidal silver is effective as a deodorant without
preventing perspiration. Save money by making your own colloidal

silver. Every home should have a colloidal silver machine. They are
inexpensive and easy to use. Do an Internet search and you will find
many suppliers and even directions to make your own machine. (Three
nine volt batteries in series, connected to two silver electrodes
suspended in water for about 20 minutes.) Be sure to keep your
colloidal silver in a dark glass bottle because it is sensitive to light.
"I've observed for years that people whose diets are rich in high-quality
vegetable material have much less body odor." - Dr. Robert Jay Rowen
Coley's Toxins
Coley's toxins produce a fever as high as 104F. Doctors who do not
attempt to reduce the fever with antipyretics have much better results
than doctors who reduce the fever. Bacterial toxins contain
polysaccharides, as do some mushrooms. Polysaccharides can inhibit
the growth of tumors in animals. Coley's toxins also contain
lipopolysaccharide, renamed tumor necrosis factor (TNF). The modern
name for Coley's toxins is Mixed Bacterial Vaccine (MBV). In a German
study, advanced non-Hodgkin's lymphoma patients receiving MBV had
a 93% remission rate, compared to 29% for controls receiving
chemotherapy. Coley's Toxins were removed from the American Cancer
Society's "unproven methods" list in 1975, but are still not generally
available. - Dr. Ralph W. Moss, The Cancer Industry, pages 123-124,
160.

Page Summary
Heat therapy is an ancient and effective technique to promote good health,
prevent disease, and treat many conditions. Whether you bury yourself in
desert sand, sit in the sun, soak in warm water, or experience a fever during
illness, raising body temperature and increasing sweating will purify the
body, cleanse the skin, relax the body, improve circulation, stimulate the
immune system, and weaken or kill cancer cells. A relatively long (45 - 90
minutes) low temperature (about 108F / 42C) heat therapy session is most
effective. You can do this weekly to prevent disease and promote health, and
daily to help the body recover from disease. Heat therapy is inexpensive and
can be enjoyed at home by everyone.

Off to a Fast Start...the Wonders of Meditation
Continuing our non-dietary interventions, we will now discuss the wonders of
Transcendental Meditation (TM). TM has been learned by about six million
people around the world, so there are lots of subjects for scientists to
examine. Plus, the technique is highly effective and produces measurable
consequences for scientists to monitor. The result has been the publication
of many hundreds of scientific studies. TM is probably the best documented
and most effective self development program in existence. All on its own, TM
produces dramatic reductions in disease. When supplemented with exercise,
better diet, hyperthermia and other improvements in lifestyle, the result can
be very much better health and significantly increased longevity. So let's look
at Transcendental Meditation.
In 1904 there was very little cancer. Now there is an abundance of
cancer. What has changed? Can this be reversed? If you have cancer
or do not want to get cancer the information you and your family need is
