    I listened to: It’s a Jungle Out There 2/21/09, the show Dr. K told a caller about regarding the inaccuracies of colonoscopies. So if this isn’t a reliable testing for cancer, what would be? Would a thermogram be able to detect this? I’ve heard thermograms are pretty remarkable at what they can find, and it’s non-invasive.

    You can take pity on my pooch. We live on an acre and can’t trust him off a leash. The other day, he got loose and was found herding *three* cars at once on a busier road!!! We had hoped he’d stop chasing cars after he got hit by one 4 years ago… .

    About a year ago, I wrote an article on thermograms, so I think I can help answer your question, Earl! Thermography (aka Medical DITI (Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging)) does not diagnose cancer by itself, but can raise a red flag. It has the ability to detect cancer (or other medical problems) before they are clinically evident. Usually, more than one test is needed to diagnose, or confirm, cancer. A thermogram will show if there is inflammation in the colon and help determine whether further tests are necessary.

    Thermograms are extremely useful in monitoring thermal abnormalities present in a number of physical injuries, as well as diseases, due to its intense sensitivity to pathology in the vascular, muscular, neural and skeletal systems. It also assists in therapy follow up and rehabilitation monitoring, and helpful in many fields, including sports medicine, orthopedics, rheumatology, neurology, and oncology.

    Thermography can also pick up on the earliest stages of breast cancer, several years before it shows up on a mammogram. Therms are also *extremely* effective in detecting IBC (Inflammatory Breast Cancer) which is rare but extremely aggressive. it won’t show up on a mammogram until it’s too late, and is often misdiagnosed as an infection or bug bite!

    Leza – great job on describing thermography – the clinical version! The sensitivity of the infrared scanners is very high therefore an excellent choice for screening the body for abnormalities in the physiology. The specificity is not so high so if the interp comments on an inflammatory response say in the large colon the reader can not tell you what is causing it. That’s why thermography is for screening – and just one tool in the tool box for the practitioner to use.

    I recently had a patient that was suffering from abdominal spasma and her doctor ordered a biliary scan and ultrasound of the gall bladder (as this was the area where she felt pain). Both tests were negative. She had an abdominal scan done in my office and the interp reported a problem with the ileocecal valve and inflammation in the hepatic flexure/descending colon. She returned to her doctor – he ordered a colonoscopy and the result was diverticulitis in the hepatic flexure/descending colon. Finally a diagnosis – the pain by the way was referred as the thermogram showed no hyperthermia in the gall bladder!

    Also I have scanned several people who had a colonoscopy (negative) within 6 mos. of thermogram and the colon showed signs consistent with IBS. SO again, thermography offers very early diagnosis.

    Earl, this is a great time to get to work on improving your health – before the symptoms show up! Find a good thermographer and make sure the scans are read by MD’s board cerified in thermology.

    Thanks for your answers, Pam and Leza! Were can I find a thermographer in my area? Pam, is there a list somewhere?

  5. Jake Says:

    I know several friends (male and female) who have had positive experiences with thermograms who have encouraged me to get one done, too, which I plan to do in the near future.

    I have a question: What are Body Scans and what can they show? I’ve heard of them but know next to nil about them. I’ve heard that Dr. Kolbaba does them at his office.

  6. Pam Says:

    Earl – easy – just go to and you will see a link for “find approved clinics” The listing will be by state.

    The Comprehensive Body Scan is a state-of-the-art nutritional assessment and is appropriate for people who are committed to natural healthcare as opposed to prescriptive medicines or drug treatment. The benefits of this non-invasive test can alert you to unknown health issues or challenges that are present and not yet symptomatic. It offers vital information regarding a weakening health status well before most other diagnostic tests can detect a health problem exists. It targets your particular nutritional needs based on your latest test results, as compared with previous results. Natural remedies are utilized to help your body return to a balanced state. Progressive testing such as this can be a great motivational tool that will leverage success as you’ve never experienced before.

    If you are seeking preventative protocols and interested in avoiding potential health problems, experience weakness, fatigue or frequent infections, suffer from chronic or recurrent disease, experience intermittent symptoms and treatment has failed, are at high risk for a particular condition or disease and interested in strengthening potential weaknesses, this test is right for you.

    People who constantly clear their throat, snore when sleeping, have brittle hair, experience joint pain, disturbed sleep patterns, or tend toward addictive behavior are considered prime candidates for this testing procedure. Individuals who generally experience recurrent symptoms such as asthma, allergies, seasonal affective disorders, migraines, skin issues and seizures can benefit from this protocol.

    Jake, if you are interested in more information, we have a brochure that covers all the details about the Comprehensive Body Scan. Call our HealthQuest Hotline at 1-800-794-1855 for a copy or to make an appointment in Dr. David C. Kolbaba’s office.
