We Believe in Health Discovery vs. Disease Detection
Every person deserves the truth about their state of health. Instead of waiting for symptoms to manifest and a disease process to be diagnosed, Thermography gives you a very early look at the most important indicator of a potential health problem – Inflammation.
Thermography professionals want to help
Instead of disease detection, we call Thermography “Health Discovery” – a very important part of your preventive wellness program. Thermography detects inflammation, often long before you may feel any symptoms or be diagnosed with an actual disease. In a nutshell, Thermography can see your body asking for extra help.
Humans are famous for waiting until symptoms get so bad they finally act on them. At that point, there is probably little room for prevention – only Reaction– leaving them with no choice but to endure invasive testing, drugs with side effects plus treatments and surgeries that greatly reduce quality of life. However, on the Proactive side, trained practitioners can support your body’s ability to heal itself through various modalities like diet changes, supplementation, acupuncture, chiropractic, massage, exercise and more…All designed to return you to a healthy state of well-being.

From an article by Dr. Joseph Mercola
You might not realize that cancer is now the disease most likely to lead to your death. It passed heart disease as the #1 killer a number of years ago.
There are many approaches you can take to prevent breast cancer (or any cancer), including the dietary changes and lifestyle modifications I recommend on my site.
However, if you already have breast cancer — even in the early hidden stages — you need a radically different strategy, since the cancer could kill you before your dietary and other changes take effect.
Let me say this about mammograms: you may think they are the ideal screening tool to give you a warning stage before the cancer becomes far more difficult to treat. Unfortunately…
It is now widely believed that Mammograms Can Actually INCREASE Your Risk of Breast Cancer
That’s why I don’t recommend mammograms, despite what you may hear from other medical sources. They expose your body to radiation that can be 1,000 times greater than that from a chest x-ray — this makes you vulnerable unnecessarily to further risks of radiation-induced cancer.
Additionally, mammography compresses the breasts tightly (and often painfully), which could lead to a lethal spread of any existing malignant cells.
And there is no solid evidence that mammograms save lives. In fact, research demonstrates that adding an annual mammogram to a careful physical examination of the breasts does not improve breast cancer survival rates over getting the examination alone.
The Newest Safe Screening Tool
Fortunately, you now have some very effective options based on finding inflammation — the precursor to many of these types of diseases.
For the longest time, it wasn’t well-known that inflammation was the culprit responsible for many chronic diseases. However, many physicians like me now recognize that inflammation is a precursor to many diseases, such as cancer, arthritis, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
And here’s some good news: early detection of inflammation may help you prevent many negative health conditions from developing.
And while you can reduce inflammation with dietary changes, nutritional supplements, antioxidants, detoxification, stress reduction, and more…
Here’s my recommendation:
Find Out If You Have Inflammation Before it Becomes a Major Problem
Although this information is of particular interest to you if you’re a woman, men will also find it extremely helpful.
There’s a new diagnostic high-tech tool that I’ve recently welcomed to my clinic, The Natural Health Center, and it specifically measures inflammation.
It’s called thermal imaging, or thermography. In a nutshell, this tool creates a digital map of your body that illustrates heat patterns — patterns that may detect some condition or abnormality. It uses a scanning-type infrared camera that measures your body surface temperature, presenting the information as a digitized image.
These thermal images (called thermograms) are analyzed for abnormalities that may be signs of disease in your body. Additionally, since your body is thermally symmetrical if normal, thermal asymmetries can indicate problems.
I recommend this tool thermograms provide:
- Reliable and accurate information for diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis…
- Precise and objective data from accurate measurements of thermal information…
- Considerable financial savings over conventional investigations…
- It must be stated that they are not stand alone screenings, they are an FDA approved adjuct mammography.
And unlike most diagnostic tests, thermal imaging is:
- Not painful…
- Quick – your multi-image exams usually takes less than 15 minutes…
- Makes no contact with your body — with no body part compression (such as what you experience with mammograms)
- Emits absolutely NO radiation
So that leads you to wonder…
“How Can Thermography Really Help Me?”
If you’re wondering how this new diagnostic system will specifically help you better achieve your health goals, let me reassure you:
There are a number of areas in which thermography will help you better understand your body. But it specializes in:
- Breast Imaging
- Pain Diagnostics
- Early-Stage Disease screening
Yes, it’s true. Thermograms provide you with early screening and treatment assistance in such conditions as cellular changes that could potentially lead to cancers, inflammatory processes, neurological and vascular dysfunction, and musculoskeletal injury.
But How Are Thermograms Different From Mammograms?
Mammograms look at anatomical changes in the breast, as they detect masses or lumps in the breast tissue. On the other hand, thermograms look at vascular changes in the breast, as they detect blood flow patterns, inflammation and asymmetries.
Thermograms benefit all women. They may be particularly useful for young women who want to monitor their breast health before the recommended age of 40. Actually, your breast cancer prevention should start as early as possible. It needs to be stated for legal purposes that if you are a woman, you need to take your breast health seriously…
One in Eight Women Will Be Diagnosed with Breast Cancer at Some Point in Their Life
Proper breast self-exams, physician exams, and now thermography together provide you with the earliest detection system available.
The benefit of this new technology — digital infrared thermal imaging — is that…
Thermal imaging detects the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection or a vascular disease.
The first session provides the baseline of your “thermal signature.” The second session, usually 3 to 6 months later is a comparative study to analyze any changes.
From there, annual thermograms allow you to map changes in your body’s heat patterns over time. They can alert you to any deviations from your norm. Mapping your health annually helps you detect changes, often before disease develops.
Yet breast imaging is only one benefit of thermograms. Another area that can be of benefit to both sexes is pain analysis…
Thermography – The Only Method Available for “Visualizing” Your Pain
Whether your pain is acute or chronic, thermography can help provide answers to your pain issue.
In fact, thermography:
- Remains the only method available for visualizing your pain and pathology…
- Can assess pain and pathology anywhere in your body….
- Is a very useful adjunctive procedure to other diagnostic tools, such as x-ray, bone scans, and ultrasound…
- Is very cost effective, risk free, and provides you with instant images…
- Fills in the gap in clinical diagnosis…
While x-rays, CT scans, ultrasound, and MRI scans are all tests of “anatomy” that measure structures of your body, thermography is unique in its ability to measure your physiological changes and metabolic processes.
What Else Can Thermography Help Detect In Your Body?
Early stage disease screening is another area in which thermography excels. For instance, let’s take heart disease prevention.
Thermography screenings can assess heart function and detect inflammation in the carotid arteries (which may be a precursor to stroke and blood clots). When inflammation and/or occlusion of the carotid is visible, your doctor may do additional testing. Earlier detection of a heart problem may save your life.
And here are some other examples:
- Arthritis: Thermography can help you detect early signs of arthritis — and differentiate between osteoarthritis and more severe forms like rheumatoid. Effective early treatment strategies can then be implemented, before you experience further degeneration.
- 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.
- Dental Issues: If you have TMJ, gum disease, or an infected tooth, this will show up on a thermal scan as white or red hot.
- 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.<.li>
- 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.
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS): This condition is often misdiagnosed. For instance, you may think you have CTS, yet the scan shows your neck is referring pain from a different affected area. This will help you get the most appropriate treatment.
- 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.
- Other Conditions: Including bursitis, herniated discs, ligament or muscle tear, lupus, nerve problems, whiplash, stroke screening, cancer, and many, many others.
With all the great benefits of thermography, it may sound complicated — but it’s not!
Here’s What Happens When You Get a Thermogram
Here are the simple steps you’ll follow when you get a Thermogram:
Step 1: You sit in a temperature-controlled room to allow your body to cool from any external conditions. At that time, you’ll complete some simple paperwork, including a health survey.
Step 2: You’re positioned in front of a Thermal Imaging Camera, and the technician takes digital pictures (5-15 minutes). You will be able to see yourself “live” on the computer screen, which can help give you a better understanding of your body.
Step 3: Your pictures are sent out to a certified physician for analysis of 1) the amount of heat and 2) the symmetry of the heat patterns. Heat patterns may indicate inflammation, infection, or a variance from your body’s norm.
Step 4: You’ll receive a report of findings shortly thereafter. This will help you and your doctor determine any next steps. We also provide recommendations for ways to reduce inflammation, if present, and provide personal health coaching programs if desired.
Step 5: We recommend you return for thermograms annually to monitor your health and watch for changes. Since everybody’s body is different, the best way to detect problems is to measure changes from your own body’s previous scans to establish a baseline.
Not Just Some Experimental Tool
If you’ve never heard of thermography, you may wonder how credible it is. The equipment used is calibrated to measure to 100th of a degree centigrade. Thermographers are trained to exacting standards and must pass several tests plus keep current with continuing education. Your scans are actually analyzed and reviewed by certified medical doctors who’ve specialized in thermography. A detailed report plus your images are sent to you in 2 weeks. Suggestions for follow up and support or only a phone call away.
So you can rest assured this is a legitimate tool for helping you gain your best health possible.
“The value of Thermography is not defined by an insurance company. But by what people are willing to pay for the truth.”

Thoughts About the Effectiveness of Mammography
If 2000 women are screened regularly for 10 years, one will benefit from the screening, as she will avoid dying from breast cancer.
At the same time, 10 healthy women will, as a consequence, become cancer patients and will be treated unnecessarily. These women will have either a part of their breast or the whole breast removed, and they will often receive radiotherapy, and sometimes chemotherapy.
Furthermore, about 200 healthy women will experience a false alarm. The psychological strain until one knows whether or not it was cancer, and even afterwards, can be severe.
