Oncomagnetics: A New Experimental Treatment for Brain Cancer
The Peak Center has developed an experimental magnetic device in the form of an easily wearable and removable helmet. It generates concentrated, oscillating frequencies and patterns that have been shown to destroy brain cancer by targeting and disrupting dysfunctional energy production in the cancer cells.
Patients do not have to shave their heads and only 6 hours of treatment time is required per day.
