Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary end point is to determine the therapeutic effects of far infrared radiation on Hyperparathyroidism. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Effect of far infrared radiation treatment on other immune deficiency diseases like thyroidism and diabetes [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Estimated Enrollment: 2
Study Start Date: January 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
1 Radiation: Far Infrared Radiation
Far Infrared Radiation (5μm to 20μm wavelength) for 30 to 40 minutes each session.

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.
