Integrative Medicine for Chronic Disease

Established in Southport in February 2016 with the following principles:

Focus on management of chronic diseases by immune modulation using moderate whole body hyperthermia supplemented by intravenous therapy.

Integrating evidence–based medicine from the ground up with nutritional and environmental medicine and clear scientific basis applied at all times.

Carefully attuned to supplement orthodox medical care with complimentary medicine to optimize benefits of both, thus improving beneficial response and recovery.

Holistic, compassionate care with attention to all modes of healthcare including nutritional supplements, diet, exercise etc

Integrative Medicine for Enhanced Wellbeing

In June 2020 with the addition of Dr Olivia Lesslar to our clinic we can now provide an increased range of therapy options for benefit of our patients.

Using specific combinations of mild whole body hyperthermia (37C to 38C), Red/Near infra-red (red light) therapy and Intravenous nutrition can be used to enhance tissue repair, recovery from muscle fatigue, reduction of age changes in skin and increase endorphins (natural feel good hormones).

Gold Coast Hyperthermia now utilizes market leading Biomax PlatinumLED therapy lights from the USA for red light therapy.

Red Light therapy utilizes limited wavelength red and near infrared LED light panels to supply localised penetrating red light for skin and tissue benefits. The patient is seated in front of a panel array of LED lights for short periods (15-30 minutes). The combination of wavelengths works synergistically to target not only skin cells but deeper tissues as well … a harmonizing approach that restores health and wellbeing.

At Gold Coast Hyperthermia we have the newest Heckel HT3000 Whole Body Hyperthermia technology system from Germany for whole body hyperthermia. This hyperthermia unit has been developed over 40 years as a means of efficiently and safely supplying thermal energy to the body and deeper tissues using infrared-A (IR) radiation. The IR light is water-filtered to reduce skin-burning frequencies.

The Heckel hyperthermia system is in the form of a tent made of flexible, thermally insulating material with a canopy and frame supporting heat lamps.

The tent is placed over the awake patient lying comfortably on the bed during the heating phase, with their head outside the tent.

For an hour, heat rays from the lamps penetrate the skin to a depth where the blood can absorb the heat and spread it throughout the tissues and organs. Subsequently the body’s core temperature is slowly and safely heated up to 40°C. (Heat Induction Phase)

Once the desired temperature has been reached, the infra-red lamps are switched off, the device raised up and insulating tent walls can be folded down and wrapped around the patient to maintain the elevated core temperature for a further hour or so. (Heat Retention Phase)

Whole Body Hyperthermia Therapy is always performed under medically supervised conditions with optional light sedation or calmative medication and continuous monitoring of vital signs, including:

-Temperature

-Blood pressure

-Cardiograph

-pO2 (saturation of oxygen in the blood)

-Pulse rate

-Respiratory rate
