Thermometry is a non-invasive, functional test of the body’s organs that utilizes infrared technology, 30+ years of research data, and over 100,000 patient assessments to identify specific patterns of disease. Through powerful diagnostic tools like this one, we’re able to help patients at Michigan Health and Wellness set the most comprehensive foundation for their health goals in as little as one 30-minute appointment. Whether you’re focused on disease prevention, management, or treatment, keep reading to find out the 5 ways thermometry can benefit your long-term health.
1. Thermometry provides a comprehensive and accurate picture of organ health
Inside the body, your organs work through the autonomic nervous system (ANS) to respond to different stressors, such as changes in room temperature. By analyzing the ANS blood flow response at over 100 points on the body before and after exposure to a cooling stimulus, thermometry can reveal underlying information about the organs connected to each point. This gives patients a holistic and accurate picture of overall physiological health.
2. Thermometry can spot a problem before symptoms begin
Early detection and diagnosis is one of the most powerful and effective defense mechanisms patients have against all kinds of disease. For example,research showsthat lung cancer patients who catch disease at stage 1 have an 87.3% chance of survival after one year, compared to only 18.7% in those caught at stage 4. Thermometry’s ability to reveal critical information about the status of organ health before symptoms are even visible makes it one of the most important preventative tools available.
3. Thermometry can identify the underlying causes of disease
By revealing the unseen status of organ health and comparing it to tried-and-true results from a database of patient assessments, thermometry allows us to find objective clues for potential causes of disease. Once we understand this root cause, we can start to correct disease at the source with efficiency and accuracy. Additionally, multiple studies demonstrate the importance of this understanding, as knowing the root cause of disease reduces medical error enables patients to manage disease symptoms with a higher quality of life
4. Thermometry can help guide and monitor treatment
Without an accurate diagnosis and understanding of why a disease evolved in the first place, treatment can only be trial and error at best. Using thermometry, we can not only pinpoint the most effective treatment strategies for patients, but also continue to track their progress. As we examine the ANS’s ability to influence blood flow response over time, we can gain important insight into how well a treatment regimen is working and make adjustments as necessary.
5. Thermometry reduces toxin exposure by screening without radiation
Did you know that some of the most common diagnostic tools in the conventional medical industry are sometimes contributors of disease themselves? Practices like radiation expose patients to unnecessary toxins that can accumulate in the body and impair immune functioning. Thermometry, on the other hand, is a completely safe and non-toxic diagnostic tool that allows patients to get clarity about their health without compromising it further.
Whether you want to be proactive about your health or already have a diagnosis, thermometry offers many benefits for disease prevention and treatment. To learn more about how thermometry can help with your health goals at Michigan Health and Wellness, reach out to our team for a FREE consultation.
