So I am guessing they had the same fever treatment? I may start some fever/sauna treatment at home.
sauna and hyperthermia are two different things. Hyperthermia is raising your core body temperature. Sauna is raising your skin and below skin temperature, so it does not have a big effect on the bacteria that is deep inside you.
Hyperthermia is very dangerous, your body does not like its temperature being raised and it will fight against it as much as it can, so probably the people that do this will give that person all sorts of things, fluids and medication to make sure damage to internal organs is minimized.
another way to do this is to take drugs that raise your body temperature artificially, that's also very risky. i think there was another clinic that was doing this.
some people are desperate enough they will inject themselves with malaria just so that they get a very high fever. that is borderline insane, imho.
anway, several things about
hyperthermia out there, probably it works. that tells you that when you will eradicate all persisters, with some drug, you will regain health. it's probably not causing lasting autoimmune damage, to a large extent of the patients, that means if the persisters are gone, the disease is gone.... even more hope for people this will be history at some point...Infrared sauna does have a different affect from normal saunas. I'm not educated enough in that area though but, its easy research. It's such a horrible feeling to be so desperate ): The only safe way is under ICU supervision. Infrared saunas help to an pretty great extent but do not heal to the point most lyme patients strive to be. Do some more research on St Georg Klinik Bad Aibling Germany and get in touch about
how they supervise and protect you as a patient. It's a scary idea, hyperthermia (under doctor supervision), but thats all it really is. An idea, in fact I see it more as the most effective treatment I had and I tried almost everything. Some things work more for others though. Although I suspect this feed was started to talk about
the treatment. I suggest research, and begin to treat with IV abx and INFRARED saunas after you are cleared to do so by your lyme literate doctor. Don't do anything by chance. Its a step by step process. Not a big leap into a seemingly "scary" treatment. Research. Read the testimonies. Contact the doctors and the administrators. And become more familiar with the treatment option. Best of luck <3
