Languages of publication
People live with one or more chronic diseases, medical and surgical treatments of which may affect their quality of life negatively. Thermobalancing therapy (TT) and Dr Allen’s therapeutic Devices (DATD) for the first time uses own body energy to treat chronic internal diseases. This invention received a US patent. Here we observe condition of people with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), kidney stone disease and chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) before and after use of TT and DATD. 10 years of empirical evidence has been studied in people with kidney disease, CP/CPPS and BPH. 2 clinical controlled trials on TT with DATD were conducted. The dynamics of clinical characteristics and parameters, such as pain, urinary symptoms and ultrasound prostate volume (PV), were compared with the no-treatment control groups. 124 men with BPH and 45 men with CP/CPPS used DATD for 6-month period, as mono-therapy, in clinical trials. The outcomes confirmed that TT with DATD reduced pain and PV in men with CP/CPPS and PV and urinary symptoms in men with BPH, while there were no positive changes in the control groups. 4 people with kidney stones, random from the 10-year follow-up, confirmed that after using DATD kidney stones were dissolved without side effects and complications. DATD is a class-1 medical device, which do not need an involvement of notified body, and it is easy use this device. Therefore, people with kidney stones, CP/CPPS and BPH should use DATD, as a tool for self-management in the first place.
