Dental Health with Thermography

Thermal imaging is an effective, radiation-free way to examine oral health issues and pain conditions. A healthy jaw will have even heat patterns throughout, while inflammation or infection will appear in higher temperatures on a thermal image.

Dental ThermographyDental thermography can more accurately identify facial pain reducing unnecessary root canal treatments or extractions and other invasive treatments.

There are three ways that thermal imaging can help in dentistry. It can identify if an existing root canal has chronic inflammation infection in the surrounding tissue, it can identify if a cavitation exists (an extraction site that has infection in the jaw bone below the gum tissue), and it can identify if an abscess is beginning to develop.

In a root canal, the dentist severs the nerve connection to ensure there is no pain but pain acts as a warning system that something is wrong. When a patient has no symptoms of pain or discomfort they assume that all is well. But if an infection develops they have no way of knowing it. By then an infection could have there for years and have created other health issues. Chronic inflammation has been accepted as “the silent killer” that leads to chronic disease, heart disease, and cancer. Root canals are inherently susceptible to infection and inflammation.

While x-rays do identify some infection, they are simply not designed to identify sites of chronic heat, inflammation and infection as subtly as thermography.  That is what is unique about thermal imaging! It can pick up areas of chronic heat before the challenged site develops into a crisis situation.

Tell your dentist you would like them to add thermal imaging as a screening technology for chronic oral infections so that you and your dentist may be proactive in your dental health.

Detecting Risk Factors with Thermography

Thermography is a screening tool that can detect risk factors so plans can be put into action to improve your health and reverse developing pathology. This is prevention, not just early detection. It is safe, there is no radiation, it is noninvasive and is FDA approved.

Just as we all have bacteria and viruses in our bodies, we all have cancer cells too. So why do they grow and develop in some people and not in others? There is almost never just one cause, but an accumulation of factors.

One important factor is the terrain of the body. All disease grows in an acidic, congested environment. The perfect breeding ground for disease is a body that is under constant emotional stress, sleep-deprived, and fed a steady diet of junk food, which is full of pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and sugar. Add foods that have been genetically modified (GMOs) and radiated until there is no nutritional value, and you contribute to an already unhealthy situation.

thermography of bodyOnce again, it is the accumulation of factors, not any single one, that add up to trouble. So, it makes equal sense that if we make small changes every day those can add up too. Among the changes are: eating organic, avoiding GMO’s, getting a good night’s sleep and detoxifying regularly.

There are many things that we can do to avoid “dis-ease”, but knowing your risk factors should be at the top of everyone’s list. With proper risk assessment, we can develop an action plan for improving our health or even reversing existing developments. Knowledge is power so the best thing to do on your journey to health and well-being is to take action!

If your body was moving in the direction of developing a disease, wouldn’t you want to know that before the diagnosis, or would you rather find out after the fact? Don’t you think a better option is not getting that diagnosis in the first place?

How to keep a Healthy Lymphatic System

Below I have listed an excellent article from The Truth about Cancer, about things you can do to keep your Lymphatic System Healthy. However, one thing that the article did not discuss is Electro-Lymphatic Drainage Therapy, which is noninvasive, painless and very calming and relaxing.

Electro-Lymphatic Therapy can stimulate the lymph at a greater depth than Manual Lymphatic Massage and will enhance lymph flow with far less therapy time. A combination of vibration, light and electrical waves help to stimulate the flow of the lymph by breaking up congested lymph fluid so that it can be released from the body. Since lymphatic organs play an important role in the immune system, the proper flow of the lymphatic fluid can have a positive impact on many conditions.

Also, Thermography is a powerful tool to work together with Lymphatic Therapy.

lymphatic therapyThermography shows you those areas in the body that have inflammation.

Thermography is an excellent tool for monitoring lymphatic congestion and subsequent improvement through lymphatic drainage therapy. All disease grows in a congested environment and creating healthy lymph flow is essential to our overall health.

I have found it is the best way to find out what your body is up to! Prevention is the smartest way to handle physical challenges and thermography tells you what you need to focus on.

4 Ways to Activate Your Lymphatic System

Lymphatic therapy

#1 – Movement

Lymphatic vessels are activated during movement of the musculoskeletal system. The main lymph vessels run up the legs, arms, and torso so moving these areas will move the most lymph. Studies show that daily moderate exercise significantly reduces recurrence risk for breast cancer, in part due to its effect on the lymphatic system. It is highly likely that it also provides a reduction in all cancers. Fortunately, exercise and physical activity come in many forms:

Activities such as dancing, gardening, climbing stairs, physical labor, household chores and others that require movement and the contraction and relaxation of muscles. Exercise and sports – walking (especially brisk walking while swinging your arms), running, biking, yoga, Pilates, tennis, golf, swimming, weight lifting, aerobics, jumping jacks, rope jumping, and many others…

#2 – Deep Diaphragmatic Breathing

While muscular movement clearly helps the lymphatic system, deep breathing is equally important. Dr. Jack Shields, a prominent lymphologist, conducted a study in 1979 that showed deep diaphragmatic breathing causes the lungs to press into the thoracic duct (after its purification by lymph nodes etc.) which presses the fluid from there back into the blood stream where it belongs. This relieves the pressure off of millions of check valves throughout the entire system.

Deep diaphragmatic breathing facilitates movement of lymph through the bloodstream and dramatically increases the elimination of toxins…

#3 – Rebounding

Rebounding is the equivalent to jumping up and down on a mini-trampoline. Because lymph fluid mostly runs vertically, certified lymphologists and reboundologists (yes, it is a real term) believe that vertical motion exercises such as rebounding are more effective for lymphatic actuation than horizontal motion exercises, such as walking, jogging or biking.

Vertical movements are perceived to be particularly effective in pumping lymph fluid because of the continuous contraction and subsequent relaxation of muscles, and the continuous compression and release of the connective tissues, and tissue spaces. It is with millions of one-way check valves that lymphatic fluids are kept moving in a consistent one-way direction…

#4 – Dry Skin Brushing or Effleurage

Dry skin brushing helps to release toxins and stimulates the lymphatic system. Dry-skin brushing is best done first thing in the morning (before showering) because toxins are released and build up during sleep. Start with the soles of your feet and brush with upward strokes as you move up the legs and towards the heart. Do the same beginning with the hands up the arms. The routine is easy and should take you no more than 5-10 minutes.

You can dry skin brush daily, but do it a minimum of three times a week (and preferably five) for best results. A natural-bristled brush is best; avoid nylon and synthetic brushes because they can scratch and irritate your skin. Brushes can be purchased in any drugstore or online…

Pro Active Health with Thermography

It’s that time of year again, the beginning of a new year and a fresh start. Many of us have great goals for the New Year and there are a number of things that we can do proactively to improve our wellbeing whether we are striving for excellent health or dealing with a serious illness.

It is not unusual to feel that we have little control but June Drennon is hoping to shift people’s focus away from disease and toward proactive health. With good health habits, an understanding of risk factors and proper preventive screening, she says, there is plenty we can do to avoid a frightening diagnosis. “There’s quite a bit of research supporting the theory that only 5 to 10 percent of cancers result from genetics,” Drennon says. “The World Health Organization says that 70 percent of cancers can be avoided, and many scientists believe that it is more like 90 percent.”

Thermography is a screening tool that can detect risk factors so plans can be put into action to improve your health and reverse developing pathology. This is prevention, not just early detection.” It is safe, there is no radiation, it is noninvasive and is FDA approved. Thermography is a window to the inside of your body to help you and your health care practitioner put together a game plan so that your know the efforts your are making are truly beneficial.

“I know—it sounds like we don’t have a chance,” she says. “But once again, it’s the accumulation of factors, not any single one, that adds up to trouble. So it makes equal sense that if we make small changes every day, those can add up, too.” Among the changes she recommends: eating organic, avoiding GMOs, getting a good night’s sleep and detoxifying regularly. She also strongly advises knowing your risk factors which is a way to head off problems before they start.

“If your body was moving in the direction of developing a disease, wouldn’t you want to know that before the diagnosis, or would you rather find out after the fact?” she asks. Don’t you think a better option is not getting that diagnosis in the first place?

Unlike many after-the-fact imaging technologies in use, Breast Thermography has the ability to give a warning signal up to 10 years before any other procedure. Breast thermography offers women information that no other procedure can provide therefore it is one of the most essential tests in breast cancer risk assessment and early detection.

Upper Body Thermography is a very comprehensive test that can identify inflammation, lymphatic congestion, dental and sinus infections, thyroid dysfunction, thymus issues, carotid artery dysfunction, colon, uterine and prostrate concerns and much more.
