    Font Size  A A A  

    Along with the progress and development of modern medicine, the concept and the trend of “return to nature” have raised attention among all of us. Natural therapies including hyperthermia, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, etc., will certainly become important methods in disease prevention and treatment in the 21st century. In particular, hyperthermia combined with traditional Chinese medicine has shown significant efficacy in cancer treatments. There are five therapies as follow:

    1. Hyperthermia Combined with Orally-Taken Chinese Medicine.

    According to the tumor symptoms of Qi stagnation, blood stasis, and cold stagnation, TCM combined with hyperthermia is applied to rid off cancer-related toxins and regulate the immune system. Deep regional hyperthermia can be applied in combination with whole-body hyperthermia, and it is conducted every other day in the interval between two treatments of whole-body hyperthermia. TCM taken orally is used for treatment based on syndrome differentiation of the patients, one dose a day, taken in the morning and evening. Since a fast is required prior to whole-body hyperthermia, a dose of TCM should be decocted in high concentration and taken orally after the completion of whole-body hyperthermia.

    2. Hyperthermia Combined with Intraluminal/Endocavitary TCM Perfusion

    When rectal TCM perfusion is applied in combination with deep regional hyperthermia, an enhanced treatment efficacy can be achieved, as TCM is administered to the tumors directly while hyperthermia is being applied, it can help the cancer cells become more sensitive to TCM. The therapy works well for a variety of cancers, and particularly effectively for colon cancer (descending colon, sigmoid colon and rectum) as well as prostate cancer.


    3. Hyperthermia Combined with External Application of Chinese Medicine

    External application is the mainly used method in TCM external treatments. It adopts easily through skin administration and attains the healing purpose through drug potency, which is infiltrated into the local area. It is then transferred throughout the internal recycle to promote Qi movement and strengthen vital Qi so as to dispel pathogenic factors.

    4. Hyperthermia Combined with Traditional Natural Therapies

    Traditional natural therapies such as acupuncture, moxibustion, massage, cupping and bee-sting therapy can strengthen the vital energy, suppress the pathogenic factors, enhance the immune system, readjust homeostasis, improve the human body function, etc. Traditional natural therapies are featured with simplicity, convenience, low cost and effectiveness. They are indeed non-toxic, and have a significant role to play in integrative oncology, either used along or combined with other treatments.

    5. Hyperthermia Combined with Medical Qigong

    Medical Qigong has been practiced for over a thousand year. It is a non-medicated health-cultivating therapy by managing various physiological and psychological processes including the regulation of the body, breathing, relaxation of the limbs, adjustment of the respiration, and the relaxation of mental activities. The therapy can help to achieve a balance of the Yin and Yang of the human body. Medical Qigong can strengthen the vital energy of the human body while suppressing the pathogenic factors. Hyperthermia has shown some effects in immune enhancement. A combined treatment is beneficial to symptom alleviations and long-term treatments. Medical Qigong combined with hyperthermia is an innovative treatment model in oncology.
