A good question indeed. Manfred von Ardenne of Dresden did much to
investigate hyperthermia and its, at times, devastating influence on cancer
cells. He achieved this with whole body (except for the head) immersion in
hot water initially. Later, he experimented with heating the core
temperature of the body using the sauna to which he later added oxygen.

I had the pleasure of communicating with him during a number of
workshops and he often spoke of Coley's Toxins. There was no question that
overheating weakened cancer cells, allowing better access and efficacy of
other treatment methods but, often, the patient was in no physical
condition to withstand the heat stress in the tub. The sauna was no real
answer as the core temperature during a Finnish type (dry) sauna only
I wonder whether Coley's treatment would be better tolerated by more
people. If so, perhaps Socrates was right after all:
"Give me the power to create a fever, and I shall cure any disease".
There are unconventional cancer treatments out there. Some of them
can be quite effective yet there appears to be little or no interest to
even have a closer look. Considering the dismal failure of conventional cancer therapy, this
is a sad state of affairs.
