Towel Kills ICH!?

I don't know if towel & reduced light kills the ich, but here's a quote.

"You can raise the temperature to 84 degrees-SLOWLY and leave it there for three weeks. This is the easiest but least effective way to kill ich off. In addition to the increase in temperature, reducing light may accelerate ciliate death.

Here's the link:

Take it with a grain of salt!
