Healing warts by heat
Type of Spiritual Experience
The non specific immune system is present from birth. It is a quick response system effective against a wide range of pathogens and foreign substances. It always gives the same type of response. For example when the skin is irritated by a foreign substance such as poison from a stinging nettle, there is inflammation
We tend to think of inflammation as a bad thing, but inflammation is a sign that our body is working for us. The symptoms of inflammation are redness, swelling, heat, and pain which are caused by increased blood flow into a tissue. Injured and infected cells release various chemicals that produce fever and the dilation of blood vessels. Both have their uses, as dilation of blood vessels helps the ‘troops’ to get round the system faster to defend the body and heat is often a killer for pathogens. Fever is not a bad thing. It is there to help us. The following scientific paper shows heat at work in relation to one type of virus……….
A description of the experience
Local hyperthermia could induce antiviral activity by endogenous interferon-dependent pathway in condyloma acuminata - Zhu LL, Gao XH, Qi R, Hong Y, Li X, Wang X, McHepange UO, Zhang L, Wei H, Chen HD; State Key Department of Dermatology, No. 1 Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang 110001, China.
Local hyperthermia has been successfully used in the treatment of viral warts by mechanisms that have largely remained unclear. Using an organotypic culture system, we found that hyperthermia at 42 °C and 45 °C could induce a significant increase in the transcriptional expression of interferon (IFN)…, in a temperature-dependent manner in condyloma acuminata (CA), but not in normal skin. …………. Local hyperthermia proved effective in treating human papillomavirus-infected skin. These results suggested that hyperthermia took effect partly by inducing the expression of local endogenous IFN and partly by subsequent IFN-induced antiviral activity.
