Computer Regulation Thermography
Thermography is quite simply the measurement of heat. And Regulation Thermography is the measurement of precise skin temperatures over body organs and visually displayed in the form of graphs and diagrams for its analysis. Regulation Thermography can then provide a unique biochemical profile for each individual tested.
The use of thermography began in 1962 with its use in the detection of early breast cancer. Because these early instruments were somewhat inadequate and diagnostic criteria undeveloped at the time, thermography was dropped in favor of the more lucrative mammography. These financial factors are likely why it continues to be promoted today, despite a number of published studies failing to show any benefit in decreasing breast cancer mortality. And yet some doctors estimate the radiation involved in mammography to be 500 to 1000 times that of a chest X-ray.
While other methods of thermography exist (the most common being infrared thermography) we use computer regulation thermography because of its advantages in assessing multiple organ systems besides the breasts. Each thermogram has its own unique “fingerprint” and an individuals profile will continue to show that same “fingerprint” until intervention strategies are initiated.
Thermography involves no X-rays or radiation but it does register heat energy on the skin and re-interprets these as electronic data signals displayed on a computer monitor. The temperature patterns produced by the computer are based on data from over 30,000 thermograms providing the practitioner an amazing amount of information on the body organs, dental stress, lymphatic rigidity, breast or prostate anomalies, toxic metals, intestinal dysfunction and preventive care strategies.
A stress stimulus on the thermogram shows up as normal, inflammatory, degenerative, and rigid or blocked. A subsequent scan will reveal the effectiveness of the intervention strategies.
Thermography is not designed to diagnose disease but to assess the functional health of organs and systems of the body. The changes seen on a thermogram precede disease states, making thermography a true element of preventive care. It is objective, non-invasive, reproducible and reveals patters consistent with healthy or unhealthy states. There are over 12,000 journal articles or citations on thermography worldwide.
Taking a thermogram:
You will be asked to sit in a fairly cool but not uncomfortable room for 10-15 minutes. The first skin measurements are taken with the gentle touch of a temperature probe on particular points on the skin of the face and the neck. Then you are asked to remove your clothes from the waist up, thereby subjecting your body to a controlled "stress". It does not really feel like a stress, however since the temperature is not cold, only about 69-72 degrees Fahrenheit. The remaining measurements of the chest, abdomen and back are made rather quickly. You are then asked to remain standing, exposed to the room air for 10 minutes to complete the stress effect. According to clinical research, it takes 10 minutes for your body to stabilize and acclimate to the regulatory changes from the internal organs upon the skin. The measurements are repeated and the test is concluded.
