Have you ever wondered about the health of your breasts? Have you ever thought how great it would be to actually find out the state of your breasts before a lump or tumor is found on a mammogram?
Most tumors take years to develop to a size that can be seen on a mammogram. But what is happening to the breast tissue during that time? Wouldn’t it be comforting to really know?
And what about a lesser known but just as threatening condition called IBC ~ inflammatory breast cancer, which has no lumps to see on a structural picture like a mammogram?
Now there is a safe, noninvasive way to detect inflammations, blockages, possible toxins or damaged cells even before they are a severe problem, and it is called Computerized Regulation Thermography (CRT 2000). Using a highly sensitive contact probe and sophisticated computer software ~ which converts heat energy on the skin into electronic data signals seen on the computer monitor ~ we can measure the functionality of not only the breast tissue, but the function of all our organs and glands.
Blocked, Hot, Cold, or Toxic
With the CRT 2000, scanning of the breast tissue is painless, non-radiating, and takes about 30 minutes. The information gained during the scan is generated into a graph form (not infrared images), which allows for precise and accurate interpretation. The breast information is then taken from the graph and put into a visual to see the actual areas that are blocked, hot, cold, or toxic.
A hot spot indicates inflammation of the tissue region. A blocked spot indicates failure of the point to compensate to a temperature change, possibly a sign of a tumor or a cyst. A toxic spot is one that overreacts to the temperature change, a sign that can occur if toxins are present such as pesticides, or other chemical exposures. A cold point is excessively cold to begin with and can be seen in several neoplastic (cancerous) diseases such as DCIS (differential carcinoma in situ) or long-present calcifications.
A Graphic Picture
Fourteen different criteria, based on confirmed case studies, are used to determine signatures for breast dysfunction. They include blocks in the liver, sternum, tonsil/lymph, stomach, and breast. Dysregulation in the ovaries is also a factor, as well as increased chaos in the chest and breast. We need the entire picture to accurately assess the breast.
The CRT 2000 is an adjunctive diagnostic device (FDA cleared in 1997). Thousands of patients’ lives have been saved by its surveillance of the body’s terrain, of possible causal infections distantly involved (in other parts or systems of the body), and of local immune-system events such as lymphatic influences or hormone receptor abnormalities.
The three main categories pertaining to breast diseases and conditions are mastopathy (meaning usually benign and related to inflammation), fibrocystic, and suspicion for neoplastic (cancerous) tendency.
Not a “Local” Disease
Advances in themography research have shown that breast cancer is not a local disease, but a sign of failing, or failed, regional and global homeostatic regulation.
Many people don’t realize that there are several functional systems of the body that are highly influential in breast pathology. We must assess lymph origin and stress in the lymphatic system, endocrine (glandular) imbalance, metabolic influences from sub-optimal organ function (liver, pancreas, kidney, intestines), and suspicion for heavy metal toxicity, as well as the possibility of distant focal infections, such as tonsil or dental infections.
Assessing the body’s terrain is another essential key in determining areas of dysfunction. Our terrain is our body’s whole internal environment, including the connective tissue and the interstitial fluids comprised of protein, enzymes, minerals, and neuroendocrine transmitters.
Unhealthy terrain is created over years of disturbances in the body’s electromagnetic field, chemical toxins, negative thoughts, untreated trauma including medical procedures, and acid/alkaline imbalances, which provoke fungal, bacterial or mycobacterial progression. All of these affect our overall immunity, and our overall immunity affects our breast health.
Proven Diagnostic Track Record
In a German study, 54% of breast cancer patients were correctly diagnosed by history and physical examination. The number rose to 76% when mammography was added. However, when thermography was used, the accuracy of diagnoses rose to 92%.
We encourage you to take control of your health. Have your thermography screening to create your own unique health profile. Find a health-care practitioner who understands the importance of prevention and identifying the underlying causes of disease.
The Thermography Center of Dallas has been performing high-quality breast and full-body screenings for 5 years. We are open Monday-Friday and some Saturdays. Thermograms are only performed early in the day, making our latest appointment time at 1 p.m.
Because we scan the whole body, even for a breast evaluation, we have several payment schedules pertaining to your own personal needs. It is a reimbursable procedure by most insurance plans, but not yet covered by Medicare.
Computerized Regulation Thermography (CRT)
Why is Computerized Regulation Thermography (CRT) important for you? How can CRT be of service and helpful for you? With the increasing interest in and understanding of the need for non-invasive diagnostic information the CRT can be used for preventative wellness care or for monitoring your progress along your road to relieving symptomatic discomforts and healing. With CRT the breasts as well as all major organs, glands, and dental (teeth roots) are scanned. Every time. We are a whole complete organism with systems that relate to each other in very specific ways. It’s important to remember that no major imbalance occurs in isolation by itself. Therefore, it’s important to look at the whole picture and be able to see all the contributing factors. Where else can you find information about the breast, in particular, in such a gentle and non-invasive way?
Thermography allows us to see where the imbalances are in the body. There are always patterns of dysfunction, many times for years before an actual problem shows up. Identifying these dysfunctional patterns early often times prevent more aggressive means of treatment. Thermography can also determine whether further testing is warranted, consequently avoiding more invasive, unneccessary and expensive procedures.
The irregularities in function we are talking about, which are seen on a thermogram, are due to lifestyle imbalances over many years. Once these patterns are identified, treatment can be better guided toward a successful direction. With standard testing such as a mammogram for example, what is the main thing looked for? The presence or absence of disease. After that is determined, and knowing that imbalances are present for years before they develop into problems, you can still ask yourself “What is the state of health of my breast?” or “What is my state of health?” That question is answered with Computerized Regulation Thermography because it reveals the imbalances. True healing does require a change in lifestyle. Many patients are amazed and grateful for the information that is revealed on their thermograms and consider this an integral part of their yearly health evaluation.
So how does CRT work?
The autonomic nervous system (ANS), which controls automatic body functions, determines circulation to internal organs as well as the skin. It does this by altering the amount of dilation and constriction in blood vessels. Environmental temperature impacts the ANS and therefore affects blood flow. By measuring the temperature of many different points on the skin before and after a cold stimulus, we can monitor changes in circulation. The actual temperature, as well as how it changes in response to the cold stimulus provides information about the function of organs and tissues that correspond to the points being measured.
What can you expect at your appointment?
After adapting to room temperature, the first set of measurements are taken. After a 10 minute cooling phase the second set of measurements are taken. This involves standing in a cool room in your underwear for the 10 minutes. The tool used to measure the temperature is small, similar in size to a pencil eraser. It is touched lightly to 120 specific points on the body for both sets of measurements.
Computerized Regulation Thermography was approved by the FDA as an adjunctive diagnostic tool for the following conditions:
Abnormalites of the female breast
Abnormalities of the thyroid gland
Extracranial cerebral and facial vascular disease
Peripheral Vascular Disease
Various cancerous and inflammatory conditions
One of the major areas CRT is an asset is in the area of early detection and confirmation of breast cancers. In a German study, 54% of breast cancer patients were correctly diagnosed by history and physical examination. The number rose to 76% when mammography was added. However, when computerized regulation thermography was used, the accuracy of diagnosis rose to 92%. Many women today are concerned about the effects of accumulated radiation that is associated with routine mammograms. That concern is addressed with thermography and ultra sound when necessary.
Recent studies published in The Lancet demonstrate that breast cancer deaths have not decreased through the use of X-ray mammography. A Swedish study showed that nearly 30 percent more cases of breast cancer occurred in women who had been subjected to routine mammograms for ten years compared with those women never receiving mammograms.
