Thermography

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.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
