Regulation Thermography

DIAGNOSTICS

Regulation Thermography

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!

Patient Test Preparations for Regulation-Thermography
Exclusion criteria

 

  • Women cannot be measured on the first two days of their period because the abdominal points heat up during that time, distorting the results.
  • Children under the age of six cannot be tested because their physiology is still developing, and most of the time it is difficult for them to stand still.

 

Three days before the examination

 

  • Please do not have dental and professional teeth cleanings done in the 3 days prior to the test.

The day of the investigation

  • Take a lukewarm shower only in the morning of the thermographic measurement (no extreme hot/cold showers, Kneipp treatments, no hot baths).
  • Hot baths are allowed the evening before the examination.
  • Please refrain from using skin creams and lotions or other cosmetics so as not to pollute the probe.
  • Coffee, black tea, or other caffeinated drinks are not allowed, as well as nicotine and alcohol.
  • Please do not eat the last two hours before the examination.
  • Before that, a light breakfast is allowed (with no coffee and black tea!), but no hot food or drinks.
  • Please drink enough in the morning of the examination, but not in the last half hour before the examination. No exercise should be practiced on the morning of the test, including yoga, Pilates, etc. This advice also applies to autogenic training, meditation, etc.
  • All less important supplements should not be taken 24 hours before the test. Prescription drugs should be continued as usual. Please note that some medication may affect the measurement result. Beta-blockers, steroids, sleeping pills, painkillers and sedatives can increase the so-called rigid measuring points in the thermogram.
  • Clothing on the day of measurement: Comfortable, loose-fitting clothing with long sleeves and pants that can be pulled off easily. The covering of the arms and legs is important because the cold is triggered by the removal of clothing. Synthetic or tight clothing should be avoided. Bras should either not be worn or pulled off 15 minutes before the test.

In the clinic

  • Please come to the examination calmly and relaxed. Because of the adaptation to the room temperature, it is important, especially in winter, to come to the practice 15-20 minutes before the actual examination appointment.
  • Eyeglass wearers should remove their glasses when they arrive in the office as sinus points are measured on the nose.
  • To avoid pressure points, open the trouser cuff and bra cap.
  • Switch off mobile phones during the test because electromagnetic radiation affects the nervous system.
