Thermography

We recommend Thermographies for detecting breat abnormalities

Thermography, or the measuring of body temperature, was first documented around 400BC by the Greek doctor, Hippocrates. He wrote “In whatever part of the body excess of heat or cold is felt, the disease is there to be discovered”. From this concept has evolved the 21st century science of being able to measure subtle temperature differences in the breast using photo images of the heat emitted from breast tissue with a special infrared camera. These temperature differences can give us a very early clue to the existence of breast abnormalities. Thermography is a valuable procedure for alerting your doctor to changes that can indicate breast issues that require further diagnostic testing. In our experience, when changes are detected early the abnormal process can be reversed with holistic treatments. This is the best use of preventative medicine.

The benefit of Thermography over other methods is that it offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast abnormalities than has been possible through self or doctor manual breast examination or mammography without the radiation of a mammogram. Mammography only detects changes in breast tissue when there is actual structural change due to calcium deposits. With thermography, we can detect biochemical changes and do an early intervention.

Thermography detects the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology. When your Thermography results have been reviewed, your doctor can then plan accordingly and lay out a careful program to further diagnose and/or monitor you during and after treatment. (continues below video)

Thermography is:

  • Non invasive
  • No radiation
  • Painless
  • No contact with the body
  • F.D.A approved
  • Takes only about 15 minutes

At LifeWorks, we refer our female patients to another clinic which offers thermography. If you are referred to them by one of our practitioners, then you have the option of having your thermography report sent to your LifeWorks practitioner for review at your next appointment.

All of your thermograms (breast images) are kept on record and once your stable thermal pattern has been established, any changes can be detected during your routine annual studies.

About Dr. Minkoff

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
