Whole Body Thermography is a gentle, painless, non-invasive testing method that is an adjunct diagnostic device for breast health, prostate health, thyroid abnormalities, musculoskeletal disorders and many more chronic conditions. Whole Body Thermography can identify underlying causes of many chronic illnesses long before symptoms appear.
What is Whole Body Thermometry / Thermography?
Whole Body Thermography is a full body screening that, unlike regular Thermography, is not based on an anatomical view of the body. Rather, Thermography evaluates how the whole body and especially its organs and glands are regulating. This is done by measuring temperature changes before and after a cooling stress is applied to the body. We are able to assess dental issues, endocrine function, brain function, digestive issues, reproductive health, sinus issues, and much more.
How does it work?
An infrared sensor is used to take temperatures on over 100 points on your body in a temperature-controlled environment while you are dressed. Once this is done, you disrobe down to your underwear and stand in a cool room (68-70 degrees) for 10 minutes. Certain patterns in your body’s response to the cooling can indicate a number of underlying health issues which you may wish to investigate further.
Who Can Take The Test?
Whole Body Thermography is for women, men and children (over the age of 6 years).
Why It is Different From Other Tests
Many diagnostic tests require the patient to be exposed to radiation or trauma, as in the case of mammography. Because we are not “imaging” an anatomical view of the body, we are able to use infrared sensors which cause no harm to the body in order to paint a physiological picture of the body and how it is functioning. This whole body screening is non-invasive, safe, and convenient when compared with other types of screenings.
Thermography has been used for more than 20 years in Europe but has recently been automated in order to improve accuracy and interpretation. Dr. Daniel Beilin brought this technology to the US and developed the system used at K6 Wellness Center.
