Thermography is a simple test of physiology that relies on the
sympathetic nerve control of skin blood flow and the ability of the sympathetic nervous system to respond to and react to pain, pathology,
injury or dysfunction anywhere in the body. Tests such as ultrasound,
x-ray and mammography show the body’s structure or anatomy
looking for structural changes such as tumours… but the majority of
health problems do not come in the form of tumours and even
tumours often have a signature pre-development phase.
Just as thermography, these tests are non-diagnostic as they require corroboration of findings which identify possible abnormalities. The
unique contribution of thermography is that it shows physiological and metabolic processes… that is, thermography looks at how the body
is functioning and helps to identify what is stressing the body.
Thermography is an additional procedure that your health practitioner
may use along with other tests to evaluate your health. By using the
most advanced infra-red cameras images capture & analytical software
can accurately measure the temperature at every single point of the
human body. The role of body temperature as a very good indicator of
health and wellness has been known since the time of Hippocrates, as
changes of just a few degrees on skin (cutaneous or superficial) can be
used as an indicator of inflammation and possible illness.
Thermography can see your body asking for extra help, Thermography
is a “Health Discovery Tool” and we consider it to be a very important
part of a preventive wellness program. By accurately measuring
temperature regions and identifying thermographic patterns,
thermography detects inflammation, often long before symptoms
may be felt or eventually diagnosed with an actual disease.
