Thermotherapy: The Solution for the Cause of All Disease

Explore the benefits of thermotherapy with Sparkle Mat, a revolutionary approach to reducing hypothermia, enhancing health, and fighting chronic diseases.

Thermotherapy: The Solution for the Cause of All Disease

You’ve probably heard it said that inflammation and/or stress are at the root of all disease, but what if hypothermia was the cause?

You probably just scrunched up your nose and said, “Nah!”

But hear me out.

I just finished reading a book that opened this concept up to me. It’s called, The Fourth Treatment for Medical Refugees: Thermotherapy in the New Century by Nobuhiro Yoshimizu. 


It begins with some pretty powerful statistics, that when the body temperature is decreased by just 1 degree, the following happens:

  • 36% of immune functions decline
  • 12% of basic metabolism declines
  • 50% of enzymatic activities decline

Then, it delves into the untapped potential of thermotherapy as the solution, offering a beacon of hope and innovation in the realm of medical science and disease treatments, including cancer.

Thermotherapy Book

What is a Medical Refugee?

The name of the book, The Fourth Treatment for Medical Refugees: Thermotherapy in the New Century, includes the term “medical refugee,” but what does that mean?

It’s a term that came about because most doctors only acknowledge the three standard cancer treatments (surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy). Doctors don’t want to be responsible for other treatments, so when patients ask for alternative treatments that are less invasive, they are told they can’t help them. Plus, almost all of those treatments are not covered by insurance.

Thus, the medical refugee was born. It’s someone who has to flee the conventional healthcare system in order to get the natural treatments they desire.

This concept is one of the main differences between the cancer treatments available in the U.S. versus those in Japan. In Japan, treating hyperthermia for cancer with thermotherapy is well-known.

Is Hypothermia the Cause of All Disease?

At first glance, the title of this section seems outlandish. 

First of all, doesn’t hypothermia happen only when someone is exposed to cold air or water for extended periods of time?  

And second, there’s no way it’s at the root of all disease, right? 

Well, you might be surprised.

What is Thermotherapy

What Exactly is Hypothermia? 

In The Fourth Treatment for Medical Refugees, hypothermia is defined as a low body temperature state that occurs during chronic disease.

And the cause is poor blood circulation.

What happens is that the capillaries in the hands and feet contract during low temperatures, which impairs the ability of the heart to transfer warm blood throughout the body, and that leads to further low body temperatures.

Furthermore, the cooling of the body causes the sympathetic nerves to become excited, initiating the excretion of granulocytes, which promotes inflammation. 

And most of us have heard that inflammation is the root of all disease. 

So, what is happening during hypothermia is that the sympathetic nervous system is in a dominant position, causing blood circulation to slow down. Without enough energy being circulated in our body, our immune system becomes compromised.

What we want to happen instead is to excite the parasympathetic nervous system by heating up the body. That will activate lymphocytes, improve immune function, and reduce inflammation.

Causes of Hypothermia & How to Know if You Have it

Hypothermia is a lot more common than you might think. It can occur from outside temperatures, yes, but also from other factors, such as improper diet, drugs, stress, and lack of sleep or exercise.

When we are under stress, eat junk food, or don't get proper exercise or sleep, we tend to have poor circulation and our body isn't being supplied with the energy it needs to function properly. Then, immune function declines and we become susceptible to cancer and chronic disease.

On the other hand, rest and a peaceful mind balances the autonomic nervous system, which improves blood circulation.

People who have hypothermia often have cold hands and feet even though the area close to their heart is warm. Sometimes, when they warm up their hands and feet, they still feel cold inside as well.

Are you a person who always tends to run cold? When you take your temperature, is it sometimes below 37° C (98.6° F)?

Optimal Body Temperature

The Solution for Low Body Temperature: Thermotherapy

What is thermotherapy?

At its core, thermotherapy is a type of hypothermia supportive therapy that involves raising the body's temperature to enhance immune function. It is often used to target and kill cancer cells, which are sensitive to heat. 

Thermotherapy methods include things like hot baths, far infrared heat therapy, and even drug-induced fever treatment. 

And with the advancement of far infrared heating mats like the Sparkle Mat, it is now widely available from the comfort of your own home.

Sparkle Mat Thermotherapy

The benefits of thermotherapy are wide-ranging. They are aimed at purifying the body and strengthening its natural defenses.

Yoshimizu's holistic vision emphasizes the synergy between thermotherapy and lifestyle modifications, such as nutrition, exercise, and stress management. This comprehensive approach underscores the importance of treating the body as a whole, ensuring a balanced path to recovery and wellness.

Benefits of Thermotherapy

The advantages of mild thermotherapy include: 

  1. HSP Production - Mild thermotherapy induces the production of Heat Shock Proteins (HSP), strengthening body defense mechanisms.
  2. Immune Function Improvement - It activates Natural Killer (NK) cells, enhances antigen presentation, and boosts interferon and tumor necrosis factor (TNF) production, thereby strengthening cancer-killing effects and infection immunity.
  3. Improved Blood Flow - Enhanced blood flow makes cancer treatment drugs more effective as they are better delivered into the cells.
  4. Delayed Lactate Production - It helps in delaying lactate production, thereby improving physical capacity.
  5. Increased Body Temperature - When our body temperature is higher, it leads to a higher metabolism, healthier cells, and increased fatty acid combustion.
  6. Detoxification Through Sweating - Through sweating, waste materials are excreted, aiding in detoxification.
  7. Pain Alleviation - It stimulates the production of endorphins, alleviating pain.
  8. Aging Prevention - It contributes to the prevention of aging, promoting longevity and vitality.

A New Horizon in Cancer Treatment

The journey through traditional cancer treatment methods – surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy – while sometimes effective, tends to come with significant side effects and limitations. 

That’s why Yoshimizu makes a case for thermotherapy as a fourth treatment to not only kill cancer cells and improve immune function, but also to help make the other treatments more effective.

With extensive research and clinical experience, Yoshimizu, a prominent Japanese doctor, tested the hypothermia supportive therapy with incredible results.

The Science Behind Why it Works

Body temperature plays a key role in the function of our immune system. According to Professor Abo, the optimal body temperature for our immune system to function optimally is around 37° C (98.6° F), but if it drops just one degree to 35° C (95° F), diseases, including cancer, can become active because it causes immune function to decline by 40%.

As Yoshimizu puts it, “Low body temperature means that your immune functions are declining and failing to protect your body. [This leads to:]

  1. Imbalance in the autonomic system
  2. Decreased metabolism
  3. Lower production of ATP
  4. Decline in physiological activities due to lack of vitamins and minerals
  5. Inactivation of enzymes and poor blood circulation"

Enzymes are critical to our health since they get our chemical reactions going for every process in our body. But when our body temperature is low, our enzymes become inactivated, our cells cannot produce adequate amounts of energy, and they cells begin to age, which reduces their ability to perform.

When a tumor mass gets to 42° C (107.6° F), it becomes inactive, and when the body is heated up to 43° C (109.4° F), it causes cancer cells to die.

Normal cells top out at 40° C (104° F) because blood flow keeps them from getting any warmer. This is good news because it means that when we heat the body up, we can kill the cancer cells, but not the normal cells. 

Since tumor cells don’t have as many blood vessels as normal cells, they are not regulated by the autonomic nervous system. Without adequate blood flow, they become acidic, which makes them even more heat sensitive, causing them to die when heated past 42° C (107.6° F).

Once the temperature reaches beyond 42° C (107.6° F), their repair functions stop working, so they die off. This may not happen instantly because they can resist heat for short periods of time, but with repetitive treatments, they can’t resist any more.

In comparison, when radiation and chemotherapy are used, the DNA of the cancer cells gets damaged, weakening the cells, but not killing them. 

Plus, thermotherapy makes chemotherapy and radiation more effective, which means less of it will be needed and side effects are reduced.

PLEASE NOTE: We aren’t saying that thermotherapy can cure cancer on its own, however, it can certainly be used in conjunction with other immune reinforcing therapies, or even alongside radiation and chemotherapy, to make the cancer cells more vulnerable to those other treatments.

Thermotherapy Improved End-Stage Cancer by 70%

While the Thermotron is a useful thermotherapy device, it is too pricey for most people. That’s why Yoshimizu sought out a less expensive option. He landed upon a hot gemstone therapy mat, allowing for temperatures up to 70° C (158° F). 

They used one large and one small mat so that they could sandwich the tumor with heat. In their words, here were their results:

“When we started using this device, our treatment results started to increase dramatically. There were cases where breast cancer and prostate cancer completely disappeared within 2 to 3 months of treatment.”

“When he implemented thermotherapy in large hospitals, 70% of 52 end-stage cancer patients became better after the treatment. This treatment combines 2 hours of thermotherapy with chemotherapy treatments. By combining the two treatments, they were able to reduce the drug dosage by 1/10 to l/20." 

The Most Affordable Thermotherapy Device

The hypothermia supportive therapy that was discussed in the book used an amethyst far infrared mat, like the
Sparkle Mat, because it allowed them to adjust temperatures between 35 and 70°C (95 and 158°F) and the far infrared frequencies emitted were able to penetrate deep into the body. 

They used the mat for 40-60 minutes 1-3 times per day at 70° C (158° F) and they found that by lying on a large mat and placing a small mat on top, they could sandwich the tumor in between the two mats. Since each mat can penetrate 6" into the body, it was highly effective.

They also used the mat during sleep at 35-40° C (95-104°F).

The amethyst and tourmaline in the mat naturally hold in the heat and amplify the healing properties of the crystals. It also produces negative ions, which reduce acidity in the blood and improve the body’s ability to detoxify.

This is an inexpensive treatment that can be used every day with no side effects.

But the Sparkle Mat doesn’t stop there. It combines far-infrared rays, negative ions, and hot gemstone therapy with pulsed electromagnetic frequencies (PEMF) and red light therapy for an enhanced and truly holistic solution. You can learn about the science behind it all here.

Here are the key features that make Sparkle Mat a superior choice for enjoying the benefits of thermotherapy:

Improved Circulation & Detoxification

By promoting better blood flow and supporting the body's detoxification processes, the Sparkle Mat aids in the removal of toxins and heavy metals, facilitating a healthier physiological state.

Immune System Boost

The gentle heat from the Sparkle Mat enhances the body's immune response, which might create an environment less conducive to cancer cells and more robust against infections and diseases.

Pain Relief & Relaxation

The soothing warmth offered through the far infrared heat therapy in the mat supports relief from chronic pain and stress, contributing to overall well-being and faster recovery.

Versatile Medical Applications

Sparkle Mats show promise in managing autoimmune disorders, metabolic diseases, and chronic pain, thanks to their ability to improve circulation and stimulate the immune system.

Enhanced With 5 Healing Therapies

Unlike other mats that only include hot gemstone therapy, far infrared heat therapy, and negative ion therapy, the Sparkle Mat is enhanced with two additional technologies to further its healing benefits. These therapies include pulsed electromagnetic frequencies (PEMF) and red light therapy.

How to Use the Sparkle Mat for Thermotherapy

Here’s how to use the Sparkle Mat as a thermotherapy device…

To effectively use a hot gemstone far infrared mat as a thermotherapy device, lie on it at 70 degree 70° C (158° F). This will get the body temperature to above 42°C (107.6°F), which will strengthen the immune system while weakening the cancer cells.

Heat the tumor in this way for 40-60 minutes one to three times a day. (Sufficient hydration is needed before and after the treatment. Adding a pinch of Celtic sea salt to your water will help the water get into the cells for proper hydration.)

You can place the mat on the floor or on a bed or sofa. Then, place a portable Sparkle Mat on top of the area where the tumor resides. This will allow the heat to penetrate 6 inches into the body from each mat.

If the temperature in your environment is low, you can place a light cotton sheet on top of you to hold in the heat.

If you’d like to use the mat while sleeping to enhance the effect, you can set the Full-Size Sparkle Mat at 35-40° C (95-104°F)

    What to Expect

    According to Dr. Yoshimizu, “When 70°C heat is applied for 50 minutes, the patient’s body temperature will go up to 39∼40°C and start sweating viciously.” 

    While this can cause some people to stop the therapy, I want to encourage you to stick with it. 

    When the body temperature is between 37°C and 40°C (98.6°F and 104°F), immune function is increased by two to ten times, making it an optimal cancer treatment. The more treatments you do, the more benefits you will enjoy, and after a few treatments, you will get used to it.
