AIDS and whole body heating

July 4, 2008

Whole body heating, with core temperatures ranging from 41 degrees C to 42 degrees C for 90 minutes, produced an improvement in the quality of life in six HIV/AIDS patients who had not responded to anti-viral therapy.

HIV virus inactivation occurs at temperatures above 37 degrees C, and is killed at temperatures in the range of 42 degrees C to 56 degrees C.

The majority of HIV virus is found in the lymphatic system, where medications cannot readily reach it. The heating treatments appeared to flush the virus from the lymphatic system into the blood,
where it was more susceptible to anti-HIV medications. (Alternative Therapies in clinical Practice, September-October 1997, p. 162-164)
