Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.
INFORMATION FROM THE CANCER CONTROL SOCIETY CONVENTION OF 2017 – INTERNATIONAL TREATMENTS.
Hello First Day of November,
The holiday season begins, I taught our daughter that you can have fun; however, the number one rule is to use safety. So, for my family, friends and viewers, use safety during this holiday season.
November starts off the season with Thanksgiving. Imagine a nation where people did not bother to express gratitude. Imagine a society devoid of benevolence and humility.
Unlike what some people believe, Thanksgiving is not a binge fest. Yes, the meal is a bit much. The dinner table is usually groaning with the weight of the food. With the abundance of delicious food, it is understandable why people give their weighing scales a holiday.
The underlying philosophy behind the Thanksgiving celebration is to offer thanks to God.
You don't realize how fortunate you are to be blessed with abundant food, and a loving family.
Many people are not that lucky. Thanksgiving gives you an opportunity to express gratitude.
Millions of families will join their hands in prayer to say grace. Thanksgiving is integral to American culture. On Thanksgiving, say a prayer of thanks to the almighty, for the bountiful gifts bestowed upon you. Many years ago, the Pilgrims of Plymouth did so. They shared their food with the natives of the land, who had helped them in times of misery. The tradition of sharing the Thanksgiving meal continues even today. In honor of that tradition, share your gifts with friends and family.
Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive. It means learning to live your life as if everything were a miracle, and being aware on a continuous basis of how much you’ve been given.
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~ Melody Beatti
So, give thanks for a little thing and you will find a lot.
HELLO NOVEMBER 🐿️
Continuing on INFORMATION FROM THE CANCER CONTROL SOCIETY CONVENTION OF 2017 – INTERNATIONAL TREATMENTS. Today I will be blogging on Hyperthermia. This is where your research comes in, for every facility has their way of doing this procedure.
The preponderance of clinical evidence from the US and Europe indicates that hyperthymia is maximally effective when the person is exposed at the desired temperature (45C) for a length of 2 to 3 hours.
The way that I received the procedure is, blood was extracted in a constant flow and heated up to 45C by the SO3H system. Ozone is then integrated into the blood through an Ozonification an 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.
One of its advantages is the non-invasive approach of the treatment and the fact that patients are fully aware of their surroundings. I and the perfusionist were in constant communication during the procedure. Vera Lopez with her years of expertise as a perfusionist, provided a security that together with the comfort of the procedure and the effectiveness of this treatment, made Hyperthermia Perfusion one of the most unique, innovative and successful methods in the fight against my cancer.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH HYPERTHERMIA PERFUSION:
I was honored to meet Vera and later Dan and I became good friends with her and her husband.
HYPERTHERMIA PERFUSION: The concept for hyperthermia perfusion is to warm up the patient’s blood slowly up to 42-43 degree Celsius, which is Fahrenheit 107.6 degrees Celsius (42) or 109.4 C (43). This is like having a mild fever. This procedure is continued for anywhere from one hour to two hours.
This depends on the patient’s homodynamic stability and blood gas results. The flow is a very low flow, around 30 to 80 ml/min. A high flow is not necessary, just as long as it is continuous.
A linear flow is better. This is done by providing a constant low flow at a warm temperature.
The patient is awake and this enables the perfusionist and the doctor, who are both present during the entire procedure, to monitor the patient closely. The console that provides the temperature and flow is regulated by parameters dialed in. The patient has a monitor which reveals EKG, respiratory rate, arterial saturation, and blood pressure. ACTs are run the length of the case to ensure proper anticoagulation, so no clots form in the software. The patient will experience no discomfort.
The patient can sit up, read, talk, work on the computer or an iPad, and watch television, drink beverages, or converse with family in the patient’s room. Most patients will feel warm and perspire.
Their color is great and they feel good. The ACT is allowed to become normal before the patient leaves the room the hyperthermia procedure allows the cancer cell membrane to become warm and enhances the treatments that are to be given. The temperature increases also burns the cancer cells, because they cannot survive in this temperature of 42-43 degrees Celsius. The results seen are very good. There is no chemo medication in this hyperthermia procedure. It is warming the patient’s blood with a small amount of Heparin (5000 units) in the priming volume. Therefore, the patient experiences only the warmth running through their entire body
WHOLE BODY HYPERTHERMIA
Another hyperthermia way is; WHOLE BODY HYPERTHERMIA. This consists of heating the person’s body by circulating blood through a heat exchange device. This is a modern expression of the ancient observation that cancer cells cannot stand high temperatures to which normal cells otherwise are insensitive.
High heat sets off a cascade of intracellular events in cancer cells leading to apoptosis or programmed cell death.
Cancer and other abnormal cells have a lowered ability to conduct current across cell membranes, making them more sensitive to heat then healthy cells. This susceptivity is exploited by hyperthermia systemic full body program that elevates the body’s temperature enough to destabilize cancer cells, while leaving healthy cells unaffected. This type of hyperthermia is FDA approved. Unlike conventional medicine, abroad they use it in the context of a non-toxic, alternative approach.
Hyperthermia cooks cancer cells to death, and is a sophisticated machine imported from Germany.
This machine raises one’s core body temperature up to 104-105 degrees Fahrenheit a temperature that kills or weakens cancer cells while leaving the healthy cells undamaged.
After about two hours at this fever temperature, during which the patient is asleep, the patient’s body temperature is brought back to normal.
When choosing a facility, this question must be asked; if they provide hyperthermia ask how they perform the procedure.
Each hyperthermia, may depend on which is the best for your condition.
Courage is standing face to face with fear... and smiling at it!
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.

Until Tomorrow, this saying wraps up what thankfulness means; gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse. So, this month go out and show kindness and gratitude.
