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.

    Health Tips

    Intermittent Fasting

    food, health, plate

     Intermittent Fasting: Fasting is not starvation. Starvation is the involuntary absence of food, while fasting is the voluntary withholding of food for health or spiritual reasons.
    Fasting has been practiced by all civilizations worldwide for thousands of years.
    Intermittent fasting (IF) is an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating. It’s not about what you eat, but more about when you eat. Fluids such as water, tea, small amounts of coffee etc. are not restricted in IF.

     

    These are the most popular methods:

    The 16/8 method: Also called the Leangains protocol, it involves skipping breakfast and restricting your daily eating period to 8 hours, such as between 12-8 . Then you fast for 16 hours in between, til lunch the next day. Ideally you do not want to eat later than 3 hours before bedtime.

    Eat-Stop-Eat: This involves fasting for 24 hours, once or twice a week, for example by not eating from dinner one day until dinner the next day.

    The 5:2 diet: With this method, you consume only 500–600 calories on two non-consecutive days of the week, but eat normally the other 5 days.

    IF has been shown to drop insulin levels and make insulin more sensitive. This forces more fat loss, thus assisting in weight loss. Growth hormone levels significantly rise in IF which help muscle growth and fat loss. Many immune and genetic functions balance and repair themselves with IF, leading to longevity and disease protection.

    IF can help you lose weight, reduce inflammation, improve blood sugar and insulin control, improve brain and heart health, may reduce cancer risk and overall act as an anti-aging tool.

    Pregnant, breastfeeding, underweight/eating disorder individuals and less than 18 years of age people should not IF. Diabetic, hypoglycemic, low blood pressure or seriously ill people should not IF without medical guidance or supervision.

    At KNC, we have experience with IF and assisted many through implementation and monitoring of this technique. If interested, give us a call.
