Thermography...No Radiation…No Contact
Thermography….No Radiation…No contact
Most people have not heard of thermography. I know I sure had not until recently. Thermography is a radiation free, state of the art screening procedure that uses heat detection to locate areas of temperature differences in the body. Most pathological processes demonstrate a form of increased heat, and some neurological processes show excessive cold or hypothermia. This screening can detect breast disease by detecting areas of excessive heat that may indicate areas of angiogenesis, or increase of blood vessels supplied by a growing tumor. Thermography has been used for breast cancer detection since 1956. It was cleared by FDA in 1982 as an adjunctive screening for breast cancer. There have been many studies done on breast thermography and some of these studies show 90-97% sensitivity. One study at New York Presbyterian Hospital in Cornell was published in American Journal of Surgery showing 97%.
Some women and Dr’s fear that mammograms are causing over treatment and resulting in more cancer cases. According to studies by a scientist published in New England Journal of Medicine, 1.3 million US women have received unnecessary and invasive cancer treatments including surgery, radiology, hormone therapy, chemotherapy over the past 30 years. This has been done from routine mammograms detecting harmless tumors. Thermography can reduce the number of false positives and over-treatment of cancers by demonstrating whether a tumor is metabolically active or not when combined with anatomical testing.
Thermography is used for general assessment. As toxins and excessive hormones create increased heat in certain areas. Monitoring of these heat patterns is an excellent way to promote wellness and see response to various health approaches and treatments.
There is several areas of the body that can be tested with thermography:
-full body thermal imaging
-breast health screening
-nervous system disorders
-vascular system analysis
My Screening Experience
I was emailed some medical history and health forms prior to by appointment to fill out. I was also sent protocol to follow leading up to the screening such as no deodorant or lotions, etc. I went into Nola Thermography and had a ½ body scan. I sat down with the person doing my screening and she went over a few basic things with me regarding the test and asked me a few questions. We then went into the room for testing. The screener did a few adjustments with the camera while my clothes were on and then she left the room. I then had to undress and stand behind a screen naked for 10 minutes to get my body temperature acclimated to the room temperature. I was instructed to try to just stand still and not itch or scratch etc. She came back in the room after ten minutes and sat behind the screen at a computer and talked me through all the positions to do for each screen shot. It did not take long at all and then I could redress and leave. I was told my results would take 3-7 days and they would contact me to go over the results. You can set up an appointment to go over results or do it via email or phone.
6 days later I got an email with a bunch of jibberish. Lol. You know all the medical and technical terms that as I read I got nervous and thought something was wrong. I was not long after contacted and told my results were AMAZING! I honestly was shocked. I had no clue what to expect. I told her going into it that I workout and try to eat healthy, but by no means am I perfect. She went on to tell me that my results were beautiful and that most women have lots of toxins and inflammation. She assured me that my diet and working out is surely a huge contributor in such great results and that I should be proud of my hard work.
If you are curious of cancer from family history, or own personal reasons or are simply looking to get a better idea of other ailments due to toxicity or inflammation in the body, I would definitely consider this method of screening.
