Regulation medicine is a new vista. In Europe, specifically Germany, Switzerland and Austria, Regulation Thermography is not only used as a primary screening method for over 40 disease patterns, it is also used to monitor treatment efficacy by successive scanning. Since it is non-invasive and can be performed as often as necessary without consequence, its universal application is clear. Regulation Thermography is an instrumental tool for:
- Developing a new understanding of the creation of disorders
- Identifying how parallel organ systems and tissues contribute to disease
- Verifying treatment choices
It is bound to play a major role in increasing accuracy of disease prognosis and understanding the true causes of disease.
Regulation Thermography: A Direct Method for the Assessment of Regulation in Functional Medicine
Regulation Thermography is not unlike the cardiologist’s treadmill test. More information about health can be obtained from watching how the body behaves dynamically, than with static blood tests or X-Rays that often miss disorders in their developing stages. Still, imaging anatomy by way of mammography or MRI cannot be substituted by stress physiological methods such as thermography. Even static thermography does not image the internal anatomy that is so necessary for adequate tissue and organ diagnostics. Regulation medicine expands into another field of vision not unlike the way radio telescopes revolutionized our awareness of phenomena in the universe. Regulation Thermography represents a major step forward in the field of medical imaging. By assessing the functional capacity of the body’s regulation system, it can provide physicians with increased diagnostic and pre-diagnostic capabilities. Regulation medicine is clearly the next step forward for medical diagnostics as we know it.
What is Health?
Regulation and homeostasis is simply a state of balance. Whether one looks at endocrine feedback pathways, neurological inhibition and excitation, or inhalation and exhalation chemistry, one’s level of health is a balance of opposites, biological terrain chemistry, toxic load effects, and genetic or epigenetic precursors. As a diagnostic tool Regulation Thermography is also a measure of balance. A cool-air stress is applied to an unknown system, and responses reflect the current multidimensional biology. The secret is in the physiological response that has been found to produce clear indicators for clinically-verified disorders. This has been proven over the last 30 years in over 1,500 clinics worldwide, and the data can now be used to create an accurate and reliable computer-assisted method.
The Biological ‘Ideal’
After clinical evaluation of thousands of healthy individuals, a theoretical ‘ideal’ thermogram was created that serves as a ‘backdrop’ to the Regulation Thermography system. This ideal was partially constructed by taking dynamic measurements of Olympic athletes, as well as normal healthy adults, and then identifying dysfunctions in the behaviors of thermological points in sick patients.
With ideal regulation, when a healthy patient is subjected to a cool-room exposure, most points on the body cool as the blood is functionally re-routed to the core and head, similar to a ‘fight or flight’ reaction. In Regulation Thermography, therefore, with a normal or ideal reaction we see the head values warm in their response as the body values cool. When this normal neurologically-controlled reaction is not seen, it can be assumed (and clarified by further medical tests) that there is an “input phenomena” that originates from the regional organs and tissues underlying those abnormal points. For instance, in an acute hepatitis case (and often in chronic hepatitis) the points over the liver (right upper abdomen) become warmer after a cool-air exposure in a paradoxical response. This can be helpful to the physician in that he can now place priorities in systems where he was previously blind. Every doctor makes assumptions based on education and experience, which is always limited. Regulation Thermography provides visual insight into cases that have complex causes or incomplete diagnoses.
Preparations for your Thermography appointment:
The reason for the preparations is to make sure that your Autonomic Nervous System is as unstimulated as possible.
IMPORTANT TEST PREPARATIONS – REGULATION THERMOGRAPHY
- Come to the appointment wearing comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that can be easily removed. Wear a long-sleeved button-up shirt and long pants, even if the weather is hot or humid. Avoid synthetic fibers and tight clothing. Do not wear a bra or remove it at least 15 minutes prior to the test.
- Do not shower or bathe the morning of the test. However, a quick shower using only tepid water is allowable, as is a shower or bath the night before.o not use body sprays, skin creams or lotions, or cosmetics the morning of the test.
- Do not drink coffee, black tea, or caffeinated beverages, and do not smoke the morning of the test. A light breakfast is acceptable, but nothing piping hot.
- Come to appointment hydrated; drink 12 – 16 oz of water 1/2 – 2 hours before the test.
- Do not exercise the morning of the test. This includes running, yoga, Pilates, etc.
- ·Stop taking all non-essential supplements and remedies 24 – 36 hours prior to the test. Continue all prescription drugs.
- Refrain from ‘regulative’ and therapeutic practices within 36 hours prior to the test. This includes acupuncture, bio-energetic treatments, therapeutic massage, classical homeopathy, chiropractic treatments, etc.
- Refrain from dentistry and dental cleanings at least 3 days prior to the test.
- Women cannot be tested during the first or second day of the menstrual period. The lower abdominal points warm up and create false readings.
- Arrive 15 – 20 minutes before your appointment so that your body has a chance to relax before you are tested.
- Remove your glasses when you get to the office, as there are sinus points on the nose that will be tested.
- Turn off cell phones during the appointment.
- Do not drink alcohol for at least 24 hours prior to the test.
The test involves taking two sets of temperature readings on over 100 points on your skin, which takes about 30 minutes.
When you arrive you will sit fully clothed for 10-15 minutes to relax and acclimate. The test is done standing. The process begins by taking temperature measurements by gently touching specific locations on your face and neck with a temperature sensor. You will then be asked to remove your clothing, except for your underpants, so that the remainder of the measurements can be taken on front and back of your torso.
After that you will remain standing unclothed in your undies for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes and while you are still undressed, temperature readings will be taken at all of the same locations and conclude the test.
A report will be generated and reviewed by one of the doctors. The report will offer a thorough analysis and give guidance of supportive treatments or supplementation that may be necessary. Follow up Thermograms can be used to track progress and measure improvements. Annual screening is an option as well.
The procedure is safe, easy, and (best of all) non-toxic, painless, and informative.
