Whole Body Hyperthermia Therapy – Patient Instructions

This is a deep acting, powerful therapy that can be augmented by the use of intravenous/injection therapies before, during or after the actual treatment. Detoxification symptoms after the first 1-2 treatments is not uncommon and can include headache, fatigue and increased pain but these will disappear shortly thereafter. If you have significant scars on your body, please tell the nurse, as they may need to be covered.

For sterility and hygienic reasons please bring the following items:

  • 3 large cotton towels
  • cotton or flannel pajamas, long sleeved and long pants
  • cotton socks
  • 1 flannel sheet
  • 1 – 2 pillows, 1 for the head & one for under the knees if you want
  • sip cup or water bottle for water (must be able to drink while on your back)
  • CD’s (easy listening music for relaxation) or cassette player with headphones
  • Try to relax, meditate, read or sleep during the treatment so as to keep yourself calm

The overall treatment will take approximately three hours. Patients should have someone to drive him or her home, as the ability to drive a vehicle may become impaired. Drink plenty of water over the next 24 hours to re-hydrate your system.

     Quality Sleep: According to Stats Canada, about 1/3 of the population do not get the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep per day. Many more, get poor quality sleep in the form of falling asleep and maintaining sleep issues. Inadequate sleep, alters the body’s homeostatic circadian rhythms negatively and disallows the body to rest, recuperate, repair and detoxify, both body and brain.
    Poor sleep increases risks to heart disease, stroke, diabetes,obesity, depression, dementia, chronic pain, decreased sex drive and premature aging, not to mention just being tired, grouchy and less productive.
    The more you work, shift work, increased stress and decreased exercise, all worsen sleep quality. On the other hand, good quality sleep increases productivity, athletic performance, learning and  mood.

    At KNC, we can measure sleep and stress hormones, evaluate sleep environment and look at all factors that may be interfering with your sleep pattern. Give us a call.
