Advanced Health -  - Integrative Functional Medical Clinic

Advanced Health

Integrative Functional Medical Clinic located in Pacific Heights, San Francisco, CA

Advanced Health is the only center in the Bay Area to offer the latest in digital thermal imaging. We now use the latest thermography technology to detect inflammation, blood circulation, and cancer cells throughout the body. Thermography is a powerful adjunct diagnostic tool for digestive, neurological, and autoimmune disorders, neuropathies, stroke and heart disease assessment, psoriasis, and cancer detection. FDA-approved since 1957, thermography can easily detect the root cause of many chronic diseases 8 years earlier than any other diagnostic tests. CALL OUR OFFICE TODAY TO BOOK YOUR CONSULTATION.

What is thermography?

 Thermography, also called digital thermal imaging, precisely detects inflammation emitted from cells when the mitochondria (a.k.a, powerhouse) cannot produce sufficient energy.  Excess heat and free radicals is instead emitted. This environment allows inflammation and cancer cells to easily multiply and grow rapidly. Since cancer cells grow fast and use more oxygen than healthy cells, there is increased blood circulation and metabolic changes in this area which cause an elevated skin temperature. Thermography can precisely detect inflammation and cancer cells since it identifies these small changes in skin temperature, leading to an earlier cancer diagnosis compared to traditional testing methods. Different chronic conditions, such as autoimmune disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, and psoriasis, produce high levels of heat and free radicals from specific areas of the body.  This heat damages cells and causes inflammation to gets out of control. Chronic disease has now set in.    Thermography uses infrared technology to detect these skin temperature changes which represent inflammation and the growth of cancer cells.  The results of a thermogram demonstrate a high-resolution digital image similar to a heat map whose colors represent different levels of inflammation across the skin surface.  

What conditions can thermography detect?

Thermography is a vital option for all patients who want to monitor their risk for cancer and other chronic health conditions. It is painless and risk-free unlike mammograms and x-rays which are associated with radiation exposure, or with MRI and CT scans which often use contrast that potentially compromise kidney function. For example, thermography is a great option for women with dense breasts, breast implants, or before the age of 45 since mammography is associated with radiation exposure and can potentially miss microscopic growth of cancer cells around the perimeter of the breast.

For those with chronic digestive problems such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), chronic constipation, or IBD (inflammatory bowel disease), thermography is a great tool to detect the level of inflammation within the digestive tract and provide greater insight to the root cause of one's symptoms. Other diagnostic tests such as GI scopes, ultrasound, and CT scans can only detect anatomical changes once significant damage has already occurred but cannot consistently provide adequate insight to why this damage is present.

For those with chronic skin disorders, such as psoriasis, diagnostic tools are often underutilized and topical anti-inflammatory medications are overutilized. For example, psoriasis often develops from inflammation deep inside the body coming up to the skin surface and causing the temperature to rise. This, in turn, causes irritated scaly, itchy skin (plaques). Thermography can be an effective tool for detecting the root cause of where psoriasis' underlying inflammation is stemming from. The reason is psoriasis can be affiliated with an increased risk for autoimmune disorders and cancer in some patients.

Is thermography testing right for me?

Thermal imaging is an opportunity to discover more about your health and your risk for serious diseases. Used as a part of your overall health care plan, thermography is a multi-faceted diagnostic approach for cancer, IBD, IBS, autoimmune Hashimoto’s, plaque psoriasis, and so much more. Thermography is an adjunct risk-free diagnostic tool used to compliment other mainstream diagnostic tests.  It is a powerful tool the team at Advanced Health uses to detect changes in the body as early as possible and start focusing on prevention.  Early detection makes diagnosis easier to treat and hence, more effective.  Click Book Now for Thermography
