The tendency is to treat everybody for breast cancer, thereby producing the major harm of over diagnosis: the treatment does no help because there was nothing to fix.Christine Horner, M.D

What is thermography?

Full Body Thermal Imaging at Arlington ChiropractorThermography is a radiation-free, state-of-the-art screening procedure that captures heat images of the body to aid in earliest detection possible of imbalances. Cleared by the FDA in 1982, this procedure measures thermovascular temperature and vascular patterns on the surface. This internationally accepted imaging is an excellent adjunctive examination. The procedure is comfortable and safe, using neither radiation nor compression.

Board Certified Thermographers compare heat differences. These temperatures and patterns can be monitored over time for changes caused by physiological abnormalities. Both men and women can benefit from thermal imaging for general health assessment of the whole body or a particular area including:

  • breast and thyroid screening
  • oral pathology
  • vascular system analysis
  • lymphatic congestion
  • abdominal inflammation
  • nervous system and muscular disorders

Knowing your imbalances early allows you and your practitioner to be proactive with lifestyle interventions to maintain health. Cancer is hot, benign is not.

All women aren’t the same and their needs for mammography are going to differ. Until we start tailoring medicine to be a little more personalized, we use one set of guidelines.Dr. H. Gilbert Welch, Professor at Dartmouth Medical School

thermal-breast-scanBefore a breast tumor forms, new blood vessels will start to grow into the area. But they are not normal blood vessels. They grow in abnormal patterns and produce an abnormal amount of heat. Thermograms are safe, harmless infrared pictures of the breast that can pick up these abnormal physiological blood vessel and heat patterns as early as five to ten years before a tumor grows to the point where it can be detected by a mammogram, MRI, or ultrasound or felt by a physical exam.

What is most exciting is that when these abnormal processes are caught this early, they are reversible. The warning patterns seen by thermography have been found to resolve and return to normal after only a few short months of the healthy diet and lifestyle changes and dietary supplements. Thus, thermography is the first technology we have that shows promise as a screening tool that can help prevent breast cancer and end the breast cancer epidemic.

The patient should be made to understand that he or she must take charge of his own life. Don’t take your body to the doctor as if he were a repair shop.Adnan Qalbani, MD
