Computer Regulation Thermography (CRT)

Regulation Thermography evaluates the thermal response of our internal organs to cooling stimuli. The purpose of the CRT is to measure how the body responds to stress (cooling) and makes comparisons to a historical library of data, which identifies patterns of disease processes even in the early stages.

The CRT Procedure

The initial readings are taken on a rested, calm patient in a comfortable environment of 20 degrees. The procedure begins with measurements of 119 predefined points on the upper body ranging from the head (including dental points) to the torso. After this first series of measurements the patient disrobes and waits in room temperature for 5 – 10 minutes. This gentle cooling stimulus challenges the body’s organs and the 119 measurements are taken again. We then use a computer to compare the two readings to evaluate how the body reacted to the stress (cooling). In a normal situation the reaction to the cooling would cause the autonomic nervous system to reduce the body temperature of the torso by 1 degree centigrade and increase the temperature of the head by 1 degree centigrade. This would be a normal response of the body to a stressful situation.

With the help of the computer comparison of the two readings we are able to assess the ability of the body to regulate via the autonomic nervous system.

For example, if the temperature of the torso increases instead of decreasing after the cooling period, this would indicate a possible inflammation of the organ related to the particular point or measurement.

On the other hand if the temperature of the torso decreased more than the normal 1 degree, this might indicate that the organ is overburdened or toxic and is not responding in an appropriate manner.

If the first and second readings are the same, this would indicate that the body is not responding at all to the stress and this is not an optimal situation either.

There are several parameters that are looked at once the measurements are taken. We have described only a couple of possible outcomes to give an idea of what we are looking for in general with the results of this test. The actual analysis of the test is much more complicated to interpret and there are too many possible scenarios to outline here.

Once we have the results, we can actually treat the zones of the body where disturbance was indicated. Often these areas are treated with a protocol called Neural Therapy. It is very beneficial to measure the points again after the treatment to assess how the related organs respond to the diagnostic therapy. Having the capability to retest with the CRT following treatment of suspected areas gives the practitioner immediate and valuable information to refine further their diagnosis and treatment plan.

CRT can give an early indication (warning) of many abnormal and possible disease states that are occurring in the different systems of the body. Along with other diagnostic methods it can provide an important piece of valuable information in maintaining optimal health.
