Dear friends, distinguished experts, colleagues:

On behalf of the organizing committee, we are glad to invite you to attend the 32nd Annual Conference of the International Clinical Hyperthermia Society (ICHS) -cum- International Training Workshops on Clinical Application of Hyperthermia and the 3rd Annual Conference of The World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies - Specialty Committee of Natural Therapy (WFCMS-SCNT) that will be jointly held in Clifford Hotel, Panyu District, Guangzhou, China from November 8 to 10, 2013.

The general aim of the conference is to provide an academic exchange platform for experts, researchers and medical practitioners exploring the application of hyperthermia and various native natural therapies in treating benign and malignant diseases and to promote international collaboration in practical application, research and new technology/method development in hyperthermia and native natural therapy.

Hyperthermia is an important part of natural medicine. Since ancient times, humans have learned to treat diseases by heat. Using heat to treat diseases can be traced back to ancient Greece, Egypt, China, and India thousands of years ago.  People used bath, drug fumigation, hot water bath, spa bath, sand bath, traditional moxibustion, cupping therapies etc to cure the diseases. Over the past 20 years, modern hyperthermia technology advanced rapidly in the clinical treatment of various benign and malignant diseases. Hyperthermia have been widely used. Its curative treatment effect in combination with other treatment methods have been well reported.

Natural therapies play a very important role in the prevention of diseases and maintenance of good health by means of food, air, water, sound, light, electricity, magnetism, cold, heat and other natural elements in combination with a variety of animals and plants, herbs, and a variety of traditional medical treatment. Natural therapies also play very important role in medical history of human development. With the development of modern medicine and the progress of the society, it has been well perceived that natural therapies, due to its efficacy, safety, Non-toxic (Green), less side-effect, have attracted more attention. Natural therapies including traditional medicine, with national medical treatment as its fundamental basis and Non-toxic (Green) individualized treating regime, have gradually become a new model of the modern medical treatment.

We invite you to attend this wonderful event and to submit your paper with abstract in order to share your achievement and experience in the fields of hyperthermia and natural therapy application and relevant research.

We look forward to seeing you in Guangzhou in November 2013!
