Science has long known that the heat patterns of the body can be used to characterize physiological processes. An abnormal physiological process will typically have an abnormal “heat signature.” So a thermography examination simply measures and records these heat patterns in order to compare them to normal heat patterns and thus normal physiological processes.
Regulation Thermography, also known as European Thermography, is a whole-body medical procedure that is designed for men, women, and children over 6 years old, that is gentle, painless, non-toxic, and non-invasive. Regulation Thermography uses an infrared sensor to measure skin temperatures at over 100 points on the body, gathering information about the functioning health and integrity of various tissues and organs.
Grounded in the science of Regulation Thermography, this system provides a visible measurement of the Autonomic Nervous System, often the key to knowledge regarding the mechanisms involved in the development of disease.
It offers a comprehensive assessment of the neurologically controlled terrains that often create or sustain disease environments. It identifies multiple areas of physiological dysregulation and generates recommendations that can be used to guide treatment priorities to address the causative factors of many diseases.

How does it Work? – The principle is simple:
A healthy organ will respond in a particular way to cooling stimuli to the skin. If a particular organ is not responding normally, this abnormal reaction can indicate a problem in that particular organ.
Using a non-invasive infrared measuring probe readings of skin temperatures from 90-120 body points are taken before and after exposure to a cool, ambient room temperature. This data is then compared to a database of healthy patients. The comparisons reveal deviations and identify patterns that are reflected in easy to understand charts and reports. Comparing temperatures before and after stress has proven to correlate with imbalances often related to degenerative or inflammatory conditions.
Regulation Thermography thus allows us to see where the imbalances are in the body. Identifying these imbalances and dysfunctional patterns early often times prevents the need for more aggressive means of treatment. Thermography can also determine whether further testing is warranted, avoiding more invasive, unnecessary and expensive procedures.
Regulation Thermography vs. Thermogram using a Infrared Camera
Regulation (European) Thermography uses a highly sensitive contact probe to collect data, which is then screened by sophisticated computer software. This software converts the temperature readings into electronic data signals that can be seen on a computer monitor. It is a physiological test that measures the body’s regulation system and its ability (or lack of ability) to respond to a slight stress. For example, our system makes an objective assessment of organs, glands, lymph, sinuses, brain, teeth, etc. and how they respond (or not) to a slight temperature stress. This is an exact science, now interpreted by sophisticated computer algorithms developed as a result of more than 100,000 patient screenings. It compares an individual’s unique data pattern with a database of both healthy and dysfunctional results to produce an overall assessment. It is a test of the functioning of your body and overall health.
Camera Thermography similarly tracks temperature changes at the skin’s surface but does so using infrared cameras. It is an anatomical test (much like every other diagnostic tool such as mammography, CT Scan, MRI, ultrasound, etc.) With anatomical tests, we study a region of the body and address anomalies with a subjective opinion. A thermography expert then reads the patterns of hot and cold that appear in the photographic images. There is greater room for error in this method and thus Regulation Thermography has been created as a solution to false-negative readings as a result of the sometimes-difficult assessment procedure of reading an infrared image.
