One of the primary focuses of Naturopathic Medicine is tolle causam – find the cause of illness and disease. With increasing frequency chronic illnesses are being recognized as having profound relationships to environmental toxins.
Functional Medicine is an individualized approach that is focused on finding the cause of disease. It is a science based, patient centered practice that involves specifically selected testing, careful history of patient, family, environment and occupation, and involves participation of the patient in all aspects of the discovery process.
In the interest of better health screening we offer digital infrared imaging. Karmen Lawson, CCT is in our office on Mondays, every other month. Digital infrared imaging is a non-invasive procedure for detecting and monitoring a number of diseases and physical injuries by showing the thermal abnormalities present in the body. It is used as an aid for diagnosis and prognosis as well as monitoring therapy progress. Images or "Thermograms" can be taken of the whole body or just areas being investigated.
The role of thermography in breast cancer and other breast disorders is to help in early detection and monitoring of abnormal physiology and the establishment of risk factors for the development or existence of cancer. When used with other procedures the best possible evaluation of breast health is made.
