What is Infrared Thermography…Really?

Have you heard of thermography or infrared imaging for the human sciences? If not, this is an opportunity for an astonishing discovery about the human body. If you have heard of thermography, this may offer you a new respect and awareness for what it really offers for everyone.

Thermography is: a highly sensitive study of the largest, most intelligent and most available organ of the body: the skin.

The U.S. FDA accepts the following indications for use: “Thermography is intended for use as an adjunct to other clinical diagnostic procedures for quantifying and screening of differences in skin surface temperature changes.” Simple and so complete… That definition covers every inch of the body!

  1. Thermography is not a stand‐alone diagnostic tool (thank goodness… there should always be more than one test for any diagnosis).
  2. Thermography can be used with any other unspecified tests. That could be x‐ray, mammogram, MRI, CT, etc. In fact, because the FDA specifically identifies thermography as an adjunct to mammography, anyone who has ever had a mammogram should also have a thermogram!
  3. Thermography analyzes skin temperature changes on the surface of the body.

Are you thinking “only the skin?” Here’s the good news about the skin:

Central Processing Unit

The skin is like the body’s central processing unit; it’s a communication hub that functions as an interactive, bi‐directional network of interconnections, sharing information between all systems, including but not limited to the neurological, immune and endocrine functions and pathways. The skin has the information, and thermography functions as the monitor, measuring and evaluating the metabolic signals and telling the story as it happens.

Non‐Verbal Communication

The skin offers non‐verbal communications about our health that we can often see, even with our naked eyes; color changes can indicate a lack of oxygen, trauma, and exposure to chemicals, radiation, hot and cold conditions, embarrassment and stress. It also betrays signs of alcohol and tobacco abuse. These signs, along with visible skin disorders, are often a sign of morbidity or advanced damage, even psychological disorders.

Thermography, however, gives us a different, more telling look at the skin that we cannot see with our eyes!

The skin is constantly experiencing dynamic change. Change that emits from the body as subtle voltage variations and thermography is the interface offering another set of eyes for the invisible, unique non‐ verbal communication. Not only is the skin a recipient of signals, it also produces hormones that are released into circulation. Even before the patient or provider is aware, the skin is already shouting: “THERE ARE ISSUES HERE!”… But we can only see that otherwise invisible warning with an infrared device.

Mindful Wellness

The human body is miraculously programmed to maintain and heal itself… as long as we don’t abuse it. Thermography, or infrared imaging with its heightened sensitivity, allows us the ability to observe the body in the process of prioritizing problem areas so we can ask the question and see the answer to: “What are you DOING?” We can then investigate with focused guidance.

Whether we realize it or not, we unconsciously look at people’s skin to evaluate their general health. Now we can intentionally and uniquely observe the skin for that very purpose. So you see, thermography is not just a device that sees heat, it is also an exciting observer of our most intelligent, revealing, dynamic and familiar organ: our skin.

Today, with the uncertainty of our provided health care situation, individuals are aware of the need to stay as healthy as possible. Now Thermography is more relevant than ever and is being recognized and talked about as a tool to safely and inexpensively monitor health. Thermography is the People’s Prevention technology.

If you are a believer in Mindful Wellness, we invite you to discover the unspoken communication revealed by clinical infrared thermography.
