We have some good friends who own a far-infrared light therapy "bed" (like a cot) and they have offered it to us for Richard to use. I have done a little research on the Internet and have found mixed claims - some sites claim it as an all-out cure for cancer, but others have debunked that. The claim is that cancer cannot survive the temperature of the infrared light. Now I don't believe the cancer-curing claim, but it does seem to have some therapeutic value for pain relief and relaxation.
Does anyone have any further information about this therapy? Is there a chance it could actually be harmful and encourage cancer growth?
Richard's last scan results showed some new cancer growth in the liver, so we are switching to second line chemo. We're willing to try just about anything at this point!
