Biomat is a device that emits Far Infrared rays. These rays are used to raise the bodies temperature and various other positive effects like increase blood flow and so forth. Body temperature is what i will focus on in this post because its the main reason you would consider it beneficial for someone with cancer. Even if your using this device for other reasons, but have cancer, you might want to reconsider using it altogether.
Not used in any cancer studies.
Of course there are 2 ways you can use the Biomat, alone or together with another treatment or therapy. Figuring out whether it will have a positive or negative effect becomes really complicated. The main reason it’s so complicated because there are no clinical trials or studies we can reference.
Hyperthermia not always successful.
There are studies that used heat therapy by increasing the bodies temperature as an added treatment with mostly positive results. I say mostly because studies show hyperthermia doesn’t always improve responses when used as an adjunct treatment. For the most part it’s positive. But depending on the type of cancer and type of chemotherapy, it can make things worse. On top of that, there is no way to find out if the Biomat can replicate other heat therapies used in studies.
Not capable of output measurement.
There is no output measurement that can be verified for the Biomat. No accurate way someone can measure a certain interior part of the body with accuracy at home as a Do it Yourself. In the end we are left with a lot of questions and not to much data to feel very confident. Basically it’s a shot in the dark.
Cancer patients need to be cautious.
Whether you’re thinking of using the Biomat alone or together with other treatments keep in mind all the draw backs. The lack of data alone are enough to stop and question using it for cancer related issues. Using the Biomat for heat therapy and not getting your body temperature high enough can be devastating for a cancer patient. Increasing temperature only moderately can increase blood flow and increase the growth of cancer by many mechanisms. Biomat can be beneficial for many things and many people, but cancer patients really need to be cautious.
I have personally not heard or seen any anti-cancer effects with the Biomat. Please do your research very well when thinking of using it or any other heat therapy for that matter. Weigh both the pros and the cons before making your decision. Don’t rush.
- Heat therapy shows positive results when used in combination.
