What is it?
Thermography is a whole body scan that measures using a temperature sensitive probe, temperature changes on 119 points on the body. The scan gives a functional perspective based on physiology and stress response. Thermography shows dysfunction or its capacity to function, or regulate under stressful conditions. Through the scan the highest priority of dysfunction in the body can be revealed. The scan can do early detection of various diseases, such as breast or prostate cancer. Thermography can even be used as an adjunct diagnosis to mammography.
How does it work?
Thermography measures the amount of body heat in targeted areas. 119 points on the body are measured. These measurements are then displayed on a single image and shows major organs and their functions. By studying the different patterns, areas of inflammation, degeneration, or blockages can be found.
What are the benefits?
The major benefit is identifying major points of inflammation, degeneration, or blockages. Knowledge is key in providing a good diagnosis and protocol to move past symptoms.
What is the procedure?
You will be asked to fit in a fairly cool but comfortable room for 10-15 minutes. The first measurements are taken with a gentle touch of a temperature probe on points on the skin. You are then asked to remove clothes from the waist up which subjects the body to a controlled “stressor”. The rest of the points are then taken. After standing exposed to room air for 10 minutes, the measurements are retaken. The results are given immediately after this test.
