What is it?

LIRC (Longwave Infra Red Capsule) treatment issues long infrared waves emitted by the capsule, to promote the increase in body temperature from the inside.

By raising body temperature and simulating a fever, you can achieve numerous benefits such as strengthening the immune system, detoxification, weight loss, disease prevention,etc.


The four effects of LIRC hyperthermia

  1. Remove deposits of toxic chemicals that cause diseases.
  2. Improve circulation so that tissues are better irrigated with oxygen and nutrients.
  3. Release the body from acidic residues.
  4. Weaken and accelerate the death of tumor cells with less tolerance to heat than healthy cells.

How LIRC hyperthermia works

The equipment incorporates Long Infrared Ray emitters made of three different metal alloys: platinum, titanium and aluminum. The heat and the rays (between 4 and 14 microns in length), penetrate deep into the body raising the core temperature up to 38º C, thus inducing a natural fever.

This increase in temperature causes a deep sweating that eliminates impurities not removed during normal physical exercise or bathing.


How does a LIRC session work?

The patient enters the capsule wearing only their underwear or swimming suit (all metal objects must also be removed).  They lie on their back with their head sticking out one end. The session is pleasant, and clinical support remains on hand.

The treatment is noninvasive, safe and holistic with no side effects when administered properly and in patients who are able to receive it.

LIRC hyperthermia sessions last on average 40 to 45 minutes

  • Helps reduce body volume and fight cellulite.
  • Tones the body and firms-up muscles.
  • Improves blood flow and eliminates toxins.


Hyperthermia and cancer

Scientific studies show that hyperthermia is a beneficial complementary treatment for cancer patients. High temperatures can damage and kill cancer cells, usually with minimal lesions in normal tissues. By killing cancer cells and damaging oncogenic proteins and structures within cells the tumor mass decreases. Hyperthermia can also be partnered with chemo or radiotherapy, increasing the effectiveness of these conventional treatments.
