Thermal Screening: How Your Body’s “Heat Signatures” Can Show Your Future – NOW! by Brian Hazelgren
Your best defense against disease is early detection. Early detection helps SAVE LIVES, and prompt treatment reduces the likelihood of disease development.
Digital infrared thermal imaging (DITI), known more commonly as Medical Thermography or Thermal Screening, is 100% safe and a completely non-invasive test of the body’s physiology. This test will identify changes in the body’s physiological activity at the very early stages of disease processes. It is used globally for breast screening and evaluating pain and disease. DITI is unique in its capability to show physiological (functional) abnormalities and can graphically display and record the patients ‘subjective’ feeling of pain and signs of disease. This happens when the scanned image displays the changes in skin surface temperature produced by an inflammatory or neurological process occurring within the body. It is also referred to as “heat signatures.”
Thermographic Health Screening using DITI is used to identify much more than just “hot spots.” Nerve damage or irritation can also be detected because of reduced temperature (cold) on the scan. More commonly seen are patterns of heat caused by trauma or infection, even deep inflammation can be detected by thermography.
Benefits of Thermal Screening:
- 100% safe
- No radiation
- Helps to detect signs of disease at an early stage
Thermal Screening will someday play a major role in personal preventative health care. Technology is advancing at a rapid pace, and so is the awareness for preventative health care for individuals looking to enjoy a healthy and prosperous life style.
Utilizing proprietary software, highly specialized training, and the most advanced thermal imaging camera, we are on the road to bridging the gap between dental and medical services for patients.
Some Application Areas for Thermal Screening Score conditions:
- Checking lifestyle
- Pre-birth/Post-birth babies and mother’s health
- Breast cancer
- Brain connectivity
- Children’s health
- Senior health
- Prevent health risk surprises
- WellPod Team Treatment Planning identify “root cause”
- Measurement with validity of customized patient healthcare treatments
- Saliva testing
- Dieting results
- Massage therapy results
- Blood flow
- Poor blood flow and blockage
- Chiropractic care monitoring
- Brain trauma
- Emotional Stress
- Neurology issues
Thermography (infrared imaging) has been FDA approved as adjunct image screening since 1982 to spot inflammation and other signs of illness. The patient is assigned an “Heat Signature Score” – an early warning, red flag system for developing disease.
The Clinical Medical Thermographer (CMT) will conduct a thorough screening using software and a high-end thermal camera. Then create an extensive visual map is created of any developing pathology with either dental photos and/or thermal body scans.
Thermography and Breast Scans
- No radiation (Xrays)
- No compression (squeezing)
- No problem with dense or fibrous breasts
- No problem with breast implants
- No problem if pregnant or nursing
- A 15-minute test
- Better able to detect potentially cancerous tissue
- Readings are done by certified MD thermologists
- Cancer cells are typically in the body 10-20 years before the mass gets large enough to be noticed.
Chemical and blood vessel activity in the area surrounding a developing breast cancer is almost always higher than normal breast tissue. Cancer cells need an abundant supply of nutrients to maintain their growth and this can increase the surface temperatures of the breast. Thermography measures the skin’s autonomic response to that inflammation – its “heat signature.”
The technology converts infrared radiation emitted from the skin surface into electrical impulses that are visualized in color. The spectrum of colors indicates an increase or decrease in the intensity of infrared radiation being emitted from the body surface.
As an early screening tool, thermography is used to look for early, tell-tale signs of a possible malignancy. Look for asymmetry in the heat pattern due to temperature differences between the two breasts. Be on the lookout for a “hot spot” in one breast that grows larger over time. A series of thermal screens over time allows for detection of any asymmetry.
Thermal Screening can detect suspicious tissue 8-10 years before a mammography.
Thermography is especially helpful in detecting Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC). It is rare, but it is the most aggressive form of breast cancer and has a faster doubling time than other breast cancer. Doubling time is the time it takes for cancer cells to divide and grow. IBC makes up perhaps 3%-6% of all breast cancers. IBC usually does not manifest as a tumor; it usually grows in nests or “sheets” in the breast. The cancer cells clog the lymph vessels just below the skin giving the classic symptoms of warmth and color changes to the skin. Mammograms and ultrasounds often miss IBC because there is no mass or tumor. Because IBC has inflammation and heat, thermography is much better at detection.
The consensus among experts is that early detection holds the key to survival. If mammography’s look at structure can detect a cancerous mass, and thermography’s look at systems can detect early suspicions of cancer formation, then thermography can act as an early warning system, giving women the fighting chance they need to win this battle. Thermography is a screening tool which can help raise suspicions of breast cancer at an early stage, when there is still a chance of complete cure.
Thermography and Factor 5, DVT, and PE
Individuals who do a lot of sitting, run the risk of experiencing Factor V Leiden; Deep Vein Thrombosis, and/or Pulmonary Embolism.
- Factor V – is an inherited disorder of blood clotting, and is the name of a specific gene mutation that results in thrombophilia (abnormal blood clots that block vessels)
- DVT – this condition is serious because blood clots can loosen and lodge in the lungs. Leg pain or swelling may occur, but there may be no symptoms. Lab tests or imaging are always required.
- Pulmonary Embolism – is the sudden blockage of a major blood vessel (artery) in the lung, usually by a blood clot.
Medical use of Thermography now allows us to virtually look inside the body and see the areas of inflammation and heat recorded by the camera and detect trouble spots. Infrared imaging can “visualize,” through changes in heat patterns, the areas of inflammation present within the mouth and body. Without this technology, we might not know that these problem areas exist.
In patients with isolated calf DVT, the whole or greater part of the calf increases the temperature with the loss of dermopathy coolness. Infrared thermography is a safe, simple, non-expensive, and noninvasive test that is an attractive modality to initially screen patients suspected for DVT. A highly sensitive test would decrease unnecessary ultrasound exams and increase the detection of those individuals who need to be treated.
Thermal Screening Life Coaching helps people create and sustain positive life change, working with individuals 1 on 1 to identify obstacles that keep them from creating the life they want.
A team-based support model is built on three core components:
- Clinical Expertise: Each client team is overseen by and has ongoing access to a clinical expert in thermal screening health and wellness.
- Professional Training and Growth: Life Coaches are professionally trained and supported in their commitment to continual professional growth that benefits their clients.
- Motivation and Support: Clients/Patients benefit from 1 on 1 interaction with their coach and the support from a network of team specialists and experts.
Thermal screening assists the patient and medical professional in determining what risks are built up inside the body.
I believe so strongly in Thermal Screening, that my health and wellness firm provides the equipment and thermal screening for physicians and their patients, plus employees at the workplace.
