The preponderance of clinical evidence from the US and Europe indicates that hyperthermia is maximally effective when the patient is exposed at the desired temperature (45C) for a length of 2-3 hours. The highly technical and complex nature of this procedure requires a strict, hospital-controlled environment.
Your Angeles Functional Oncology team has created a proprietary system of treatment that incorporates both Hyperthermia and Ozone therapies.
In the SO3H technique, blood is extracted in a constant flow and heated up to 45C by the SO3H system. Ozone is then integrated into the blood through an Ozonification & UV device that processes the blood. Before returning to the body the hyper-oxygenated-heated blood passes through a detoxification filter to cleanse it of toxins and cellular debris.
Throughout the procedure the patient is monitored by trained staff and by the SO3H System at all times.
SO3H Impact on Cancer cells
Scientists know that when the cells of the body are exposed to higher than normal temperatures, changes take place inside the cells, and that some of these changes can be harnessed to increase the likely effectiveness of orthomolecular cancer treatments. The earliest attempts to treat cancer using heat were met with mixed results due in large part to the difficult challenge inherent in regulating the ideal temperature to a specific part of the body while limiting potentially invasive or deleterious effects on other parts of the body.
Today, advancements such as the SO3H system provide superior control and precision heat delivery.
Under normal conditions, tumor cells are invisible to the immune system; however, under the influence of heat and UV exposure tumor cells will form “heat shock proteins” , effective identifiers of non-healthy cells that appear on the surface of the degenerated cells. The body’s immune system detects these proteins as extraneous cells, triggering its immune cells to fight the cancer cells.
Unlike healthy human cells that love oxygen, cancer cells are anaerobic, i.e. cannot live in high oxygen concentrations. Overexposure to oxygen in tumor cells, also known as the Hypothermic Ozonification, results in over-acidification of the heated cells and a consequent nutrient deficiency in the tumor. Cellular metabolism is destroyed, resulting in apoptosis (dell death) of the tumor cells.
Cellular biologists have also detected that malignant cells have an increased rate of glycolysis, which increases the production of lactate.
Ozone therapy has the impact of significantly decreasing lactate production, indicating successful inhibition of the metabolism. Tumor cells suffer a peroxide intolerance due to insufficient peroxidase and catalase; ozone is thus able to oxidize the outer lipid layer of malignant cells and destroy them through cell lysis.
Our proprietary SO3 Hyperthermia System in our program has been proven to have phenomenal synergistic effects with the rest of our treatment approach and is the cornerstone of the Angeles Functional Oncology program.
