Specialist Digital Camera Takes a Picture of Health
When it comes to health more and more people are looking for natural ways to impro
ve it, maintain it and diagnose potential problems. We all know that many treatments can be toxic but some diagnostic procedures can also do more harm than good. So it’s refreshing to find an investigatory procedure that can pick up problems in the very early stages, which is completely harmless and non-invasive – The Thermographic Body Scan.
Wendy Calver, RN is a certified Clinical Thermographer. She has been a registered nurse for over 35 years and has also studied reflexology and Reiki during that time. Wendy has always enjoyed using natural therapies to look after her own health and that of her family. Wendy had a Thermographic Scan a few years ago, thought it was impressive and decided to become a Clinical Thermographer so that she could continue to help people in a different way.
This Investigatory procedure has the unique ability to pick up the nervous system’s projection of disease, alerting an individual to a problem in their body. A non
-contact digital infrared camera captures and records temperature variations on the skin. It is not a diagnostic test or tool and doesn’t replace any medical machinery on the NHS, but it can be used in conjunction with those machines. While it doesn’t diagnose cancer, it can detect increased blood supply (as found in cancers) called angiogenesis. It is well documented in all fields of medicine that the earliest detection leads to the best outcome.
Mammography, MRI and X-ray detect anatomical changes (structure), but will miss such things as active inflammation, or increased blood supply. Thermography can detect early danger signs in the body years before other devices. In many diseases there are variations in blood flow which in turn affect the skin temperature. The digital camera photographs the amount of heat on the body’s surface. It’s then translated into a digital image seen immediately on a specialised computer programme. It is not invasive, doesn’t involve radiation, injections or dyes going into the system. The scan produces special digita
lised images, which are sent to a worldwide team of medical doctors, specifically trained in thermography (thermologists). They interpret the scan and make suggestions as to what the patient should do if there are any problems highlighted on the scan.
The camera can be used for breast health, regions of interest (somewhere on your body that is causing you concern (e.g. possible thyroid gland symptoms), half body or full body scans. A thermography appointment will take approximately 30 minutes for a breast scan or a region of interest (including medical history) and about an hour for a half body or full body scan. The doctor reads the images and the patient’s report is sent to the patient via email within 72 hours. Thermography can be used on both women and men of all ages, including pregnant women, and it can also be used on children if referred by a GP.
Thermography enables earlier intervention and gives people more options to look after their health. Clinics in East Sussex and Kent.
