Knowledge is the first step toward making a difference when addressing breast health issues. This is true for both the practitioner and the client. Thermography (in this case, breast thermal imaging) allows safe and frequent monitoring to evaluate the effectiveness of the protocols that a person has chosen to incorporate into their breast health care regimen.
Approved by the FDA since 1982, radiation-free thermal imaging creates a visual “heat map” of organs such as the breast. Thermography detects patterns of heat emitted from the increased circulation produced by abnormal metabolic activity in infectious, inflamed or pathological cells. This safe technology can help detect pre-cancerous conditions years before such are detected using other tests.
Advantages of Thermography for Breast Screening:
• Safe, easy, and no discomfort.
• No radiation or compression to the breast tissue.
• Effective and safe for screening: breasts with implants, pregnant and nursing women, adolescents.
• Earliest detection of breast disease available, even earlier than a physical examination.
Alive & Well Naturally delivers advanced medical infrared breast thermal imaging that provides:
• Real-time, high resolution digital images in color and gray scale (14 images in total).
• Gray-Scale Imaging necessary for a vascular pattern evaluation.
• Advanced information for self-help on: reducing the risk of breast cancer, hormonal balancing, thyroid dysfunction, depressed immune function, possible infection and lymphatic congestion.
Thermal imaging can detect early signs of areas of concern years before any noticeable lumps or issues are formed. This technique is completely safe using no radiation or compression. During the imaging process inflammation, escalated metabolic activity and vascular circulation abnormalities can be detected which is often a precursor to arthritis, heart disease, cancer, and even stroke and diabetes. Using Gray-scale Thermal Imaging hormonal changes and imbalances can be detected.
Regular breast thermal imaging is recommended for women at the time of menses. Though a vast portion of our scans are for women breasts, thermal imaging can be effective scanning other areas of concern as well as full body scans for both men and women.
Thermal Imaging is not just for breasts, here are some of the other ways thermal imaging can help.
Arthritis: Thermography can help you detect early signs of arthritis. We can even differentiate between osteoarthritis and more severe forms like rheumatoid in many cases. Further degeneration can combated with effective early treatment strategies.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS): You may think you have CTS, yet we have found that many times the scan shows your neck is referring pain from a different affected area. Thermal imaging can help p you get the most appropriate treatment.
Dental Issues: TMJ, gum disease, or an infected tooth, this will show up on a thermal scan as white or red hot.
Digestive Disorders: Irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis and Crohn's disease are often visible with thermography. If you're able to address these conditions early on, you'll find that health restoration is much more likely.
Immune Dysfunction, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue: The immune system correlates to the T1 andT2 areas of your spine, high levels of heat in that region can indicate immune dysfunction. On the other hand, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and aching joints are just a few complaints that correlate to cool patterns seen at this area.
Neck and Back Pain: Thermal pain patterns ‘light up' white and red hot on a scan in the involved area. You can get relief faster and begin restorative care that more precisely targets the correct area.
Sinus Issues & Headaches: Significant heat in your forehead or sinus region revealed on a thermal scan is an indicator that these systems in your body are not functioning properly.
Other Conditions: Including bursitis, herniated discs, ligament or muscle tear, lupus, nerve problems, whiplash, stroke screening, cancer, and many, many others.
