Energy Specific Far Infrared Radiation Treatment for Hyperparathyroidism

Overview

A study to determine the possibility of using far infrared radiation to treat Hyperparathyroidism.

Full Title of Study: “Phase 1 Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of Using Energy Specific Far Infrared Radiation Treatment for Hyperparathyroidism.”

  • Study Type: Interventional
  • Study Design
    • Allocation: Non-Randomized
    • Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment

Detailed Description

Overactive parathyroid glands secrete an excess of parathyroid hormones, resulting in increased levels of calcium in the blood stream, which can lead to weakening of the bones and to kidney stones. We are postulating that the non-invasive energy specific electromagnetic radiation of the central nervous system, the viscera and the endocrine system has the potential to stop the over secretion of the parathyroid hormones and normalize the body's metabolic functions.

Interventions

  • Radiation: Far Infrared Radiation
