Thermography simply means heat measurement. Even the doctors of good old times diagnosed with the backs of their hands on the body surface of their patients particularly warm or cold skin areas and brought them in relation to diseases of internal organs.
Today we use modern technology: With the help of an infrared sensor the skin temperature is measured at around 100 points on the body.
This simple and non-invasive diagnosis method is even more effective, when we measure the skin temperature not only once, but twice, namely before and after a slight cooling down period. This forces the body to react. The cold is generated by the fact that the patient stays undressed (except underwear) at normal room temperature from 20 ° to 22 ° C. The nature and extent of the temperature change at the individual measuring points gives important diagnostic information:
Each part of the skin is connected to a corresponding internal organ through a reflex arc. Therefore, one can conclude from the heat regulation behavior of the skin to the functional state of the corresponding organ. Thus, the cause can often be found in the case of unclear complaints, and connections can be clarified.
But the most important thing is that these heat changes are often noticeable years before the onset of dysfunction, and especially of an organ disease or other clinically undetectable conditions. Thus, the regulation thermography is a real check-up that helps prevent diseases.
It is also a valuable aid in the planning of therapies and the control of the initiated therapy, since you can follow the progress of recovery in the thermogram.
To provide reliable results, it is important to follow certain standards. These are explained in more detail on the enclosed sheet or on the back of this page. Please read this information carefully. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
