for treating Cancer
Home Hydrotherapy is a treatment that
detoxifies the body and may effectively kill the cancer cells.
Detoxification is a must in healing the
body. Hydrotherapy as a home treatment option plays an important role as an
adjunct to the Gerson program for reversing cancer. Hydrotherapy treatments
heart rate and respiratory rate
increase metabolism important for

For the cancer individual there is an
additional important benefit in the hydrotherapy treatments. Many types of
cancer cells are much more sensitive to heat than are normal cells.
If temperatures can be raised high enough
(104 degrees F or more) and long enough death of cancer cells may result.
Research has shown that following intravenous
or rectal application of laetrile there may be a temperature increase in the
tumor mass of 4-5 degrees F. When this localized increase is added to total
body hyperthermia many benefits have been noted, including tumor shrinkage and
stimulation of detoxification. For more
information on laetrile see _________.

Preparing for and Undergoing Hydrotherapy
Don’t eat 3-4 hours prior to treatment. Liquids such as juices tea, etc
can be continued.
One hour before scheduled treatment a coffee enema is taken.
at this time a thorough cleansing shower is to be taken.
those individuals taking laetrile will have it applied 15 minutes before the
scheduled treatment. (see laetrile ________
for more information)
15 minutes before the treatment a cup of hot herb tea is given.
Bathing suit may be used as you will need assistance from others during the
Your temperature, heart rate
and pulse will need to be monitored.
It is important that you are
not alone during this time.
You may experience overheating
(during this time your muscles may become weak making it difficult to get out of
From the hot shower the individual goes to the hot tub. The tub is entered
slowly, submerging until the shoulders are covered and a comfortable position
I am a tall, large woman. It
was difficult to become submerged in the tub water covering my shoulders. As a
result I could not raise my body temperature to the desired 103-104 degrees.
My husband, being an
industrial engineer, came up with a simple solution. He attained a heavy clear
plastic, taped it to the top of the bathtub on three sides. He cut a slit in
one end for my neck and head to stick out. On the other end of the tub, he
un-taped the edge just enough to slowly pour in boiling water in order to raise
the temperature of the water.
This allowed my body
temperature to be raised to the desired temperature or at least to the
temperature I could tolerate.
This was a very difficult
therapy for me. However, I persevered. I knew the health benefits and that it
was the natural radiation I needed to kill the cancer cells.
When I felt that it was
intolerable I thought of the medical radiation that is also very intolerable and
often leaves one weak for days and weeks to say nothing of all the side
affects. For me the water hydrotherapy was uncomfortable for only the time I
was in the hot tub.
A second up of herbal tea is taken upon entering the tub.
Cover head with towel:
The head will be covered by a towel to limit heat loss.
Monitor temperature and
pulse: Temperature and pulse will
be monitored frequently as the body temperature increases. This is done by your
partner who continually monitors your progress and any reactions.
The individual is encouraged to relax, and maybe listen to calming music, or
recordings of spiritual words on healing. As the temperature increases breathing
exercises are used, e.g.: breathe in through the nose, pulling the air in with
the “stomach muscles,” then out through the mouth. Swab the face, and fan with
a wash cloth.
20 – 30 minutes. It takes about 20 – 30 minutes for the average individual to
reach 103 – 104 degrees F. On the first treatment a lower temperature is
attempted to begin acclimatization. (102-103 degrees F.) The final temperature
is determined by what the individual feels he/she can tolerate.
I discovered that my tolerance
was very low. I needed a very kind, gentle, and encouraging yet insistent
partner, that did not let me quit. It paid off in big dividends. How important
Heat the bed:
Preheat the individual’s bed using an electric blanket over the other blankets.
Help the individual into the warmed bed and disconnect the electric blanket.
I lost too much body
temperature heat moving from the bathroom to the bedroom. I also found it
difficult to stay in the tub for the full 30 minutes.
Therefore we prepared a
makeshift bed on the floor of the bathroom. We used a sponge mat and covered it
with plastic, and sheets, and seven to eight blankets, covered with a heating
blanket to warm the whole pile first.
I would move as quickly as I
could from the hot water tub to the makeshift bed. My partner would quickly
cover me with the blankets to hold as much heat in my body as possible. He
turned off the heating blanket too.
The longer I could hold the
high body temperature, the more cancer cells would be killed. Cancer cells
cannot tolerate heat. That is why radiation is effective.
After another 20 – 30 minutes,
I would move to a warmed bed.
Stay in warm bed:
the body temperature is maintained in the bed for another 15-20 minutes at which
time the blankets are slowly removed one by one. This cooling-off process
continues, cooler fluids (never cooler than room temperature) can be given
until, at the time of completion, several glasses of orange juice are
When the individual returns to his/her room, a lukewarm shower should be used to
further assist in washing off the skin. A restful afternoon is indicated. Many
individuals sleep for several hours following treatment. Regular meals and
juices need not be interrupted.
IMPORTANT POINTS TO BE OBSERVED WITH ALL
The room should be warm and
free of drafts.
Protect bedding furniture,
rugs, etc. with waterproof sheets
Assemble Supplies before
Use care when adding hot or
cold water. Avoid chilling.
Individuals should be dry and
warm after treatment
