Heat damages proteins required to repair DNA damage. Normal cells typically recover faster than cancer cells when exposed to either heat or the combination of heat combined with additional natural cancer treatments.

Additionally, normal tissues have more blood flow than cancerous tissue so they dissipate heat better. Cell death from exposure to heat is a function of both the intensity of the heat and the length of time of the exposure. Cancer cells are damaged at a temperature above 104 degrees Fahrenheit . Researchers believe the right level and length of heat damages 99% of all cancer strains. This makes hyperthermia one of the most effective natural cancer treatments available. Importantly, hyperthermia does not damage normal healthy cells, and may actually enhance the immune system.
