Featuring Dr. Sharon Gurm, BSc. ND, FABNO, Naturopathic Oncologist, The Benefits of Oncotherm in Cancer Treatment

Duration: 1 minute, 25 seconds

Oncotherm is one of the most exciting frontiers of cancer treatment and research namely because it’s a very noninvasive form of complimentary cancer therapy, and because it doesn’t cause any additional toxicity to the treatment in addition to the toxicity from standard therapies.

It also improves the outcomes that truly matter to the patient, namely it improves overall survival and it improves quality of life. From a patient experience perspective, Oncotherm is a very comfortable treatment.

Treatments can last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes depending on the area to be treated. And the number of treatments varies depending on what the treatment plan is overall for the patient in the short and long term.

So it depends on what types of other treatments might be integrated as part of the overall plan. It typically can vary anywhere from 12 to up to 24 treatments of Oncotherm. Temporary redness after treatment is quite common, and sometimes there can be some minor burns resembling a sunburn and that’s very easily managed and treatable.

For more information on oncothermia or local regional hyperthermia, find a naturopathic doctor who specializes in integrative cancer care.
