How to discuss Thermography with your doctor, family, and friends.

Patients are always asking me if their doctor will understand their thermography report. There’s a large spectrum of responses I’ve heard from my patients’ doctors. Some doctors support thermography so much they require all their patients to have an annual full body scan from me. The full body scan will assess an individual’s current health status by listing any abnormal hot or cold spots throughout the entire body. Medical thermography is infrared imaging.  Ideally, you would use thermography for cancer prevention, but it can also be early cancer detection which could save your life (70% of those who have diagnosed cancers from anatomical testing, could have been found up to 10 years earlier on a thermography). Other doctors have never heard of thermography. Most are somewhere in between.

Let your doctor know that “we are not looking to replace the traditional tests, only add to them*”. You can e-mail your report to your doctor and ask for a consult appointment to review your results. A thermologist will compose your thermography report much like how a radiologist will write a report on an X-ray or ultrasound. These reports are meant for your primary care physician to offer you further recommendations based on your results if any are needed. If you’d like a sample report to review with a Breast Thermography International (BTI) member, we’d be happy to discuss it with you or your doctor. E-mail us at shanna@flowwell.org to set up a review.

There are a wide range of suggestions your doctor could give you to improve your next thermography report. For example, you may be recommended to change parts of your diet. You may be instructed to relieve muscle and joint tension with Yoga or other forms of exercise.  Since most diseases can be caused by stress, you may be advised to meditate with calming music.  Perhaps you may need to improve your circulation with BEMER and chiropractic adjustments.  Sometimes, although we try our best to live a healthy life, we still may need to reduce toxins with a detox program of your choice.  These are just some of the many recommendations you and your physician can discuss in order to work toward a healthier life.

Share your thermography report with your family and friends. This might encourage them to include thermography into their own annual health regiment. Remember, early detection saves lives and prevention is ideal.

Be Well!
