One of the most popular Therapies Dr. Tatsumura uses is the Far Infrared Onnetsu (heat) Therapy, which is based on the combination of the ancient Japanese concept of inner body heat and the modern technology of the Far Infrared Ray from the Sun, originally discovered by NASA in the 1960’s as the Sun’s healing energy.
Traditionally, the Japanese believed that the cause of illness lies in the low inner body temperature. When the body temperature becomes lower than 97.7ºF (36.5ºC), the organs will not function well and the immune system deteriorates, causing illnesses. Far Infrared Onnetsu Therapy has been found to be a remarkable Alternative Therapy for cancer and other degenerative diseases.
Dr. Kazuko Tatsumura Hillyer has written numerous articles and co-authored 2 books Overcoming Cancer and Other Diseases in a Holistic Way (with Tomeko Mitsui, O.M.D.) and Your Immune Revolution & Healing Your Healing Power (with Toru Abo, M.D.).
