LEMMO Integrated Cancer Care Inc is the longest running naturopathic clinic in Canada focused in cancer care which includes the use of hyperthermia technologies since 2008.
After careful review and research, we have received special Canadian government permission for an innovative Loco-Regional Hyperthermia (LRHT) medical device, the first system of its kind in both Canada and the United States and available to qualifying patients here in Vancouver, BC.
Loco-Regional Hyperthermia (LRHT) uses a heat-producing energy field to more locally target an area or region on or within the body that contains the cancer or tumor(s). Temperatures above 39 C and up to 44 C (102 to 111 F) in tumors is key in providing clinical benefit, while preserving normal tissue, according to more recent European hyperthermia oncology standards.
Medical centers and hospitals throughout the world are primarily using this kind of technology to enhance the positive benefits of radiation and chemotherapy.
Well-designed LRHT medical devices have the ability to target superficial cancers of the body closer to the skin such as in:
- the head & neck area and surrounding lymph nodes, breast, chest wall, esophagus, superficial malignant sites (i.e. melanoma), and which would also include the brain
AND to also effectively target deep cancer-involved areas found deep within the chest, abdomen, and pelvis which include the:
- bladder, cervix, rectum & colon, kidneys, liver, lungs, ovaries, uterus, pancreas, peritoneum, prostate, stomach, and deep within the bones, lymph nodes, and surrounding soft tissues (i.e. sarcoma).
Note: current knowledge in hyperthermia emphasizes the importance of LRHT related devices that possess at least two active electrodes along with enough power, when required, to effectively target deep areas within the body.
