 Carolina Holistic Health's investment in Thermography also known as Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI) brings an exciting and innovative health screening tool to Greenville. DITI, by Meditherm is the only FDA approved Class I medical thermal imaging device on the market. It is a revolutionary diagnostic tool that offers a clear image of patient health and immeasurable peace of mind. Traditional medical testing utilizes the body’s structure to determine a health risk. Foreign growths in the body such as tumors are discovered and reactive measures are then taken. The road to recovery is often difficult and painful. CHH offers the individual a proactive approach to healthcare, providing the opportunity to prevent future health issues. The major basis of clinical Thermography (DITI) is the correlation of temperature recordings with various conditions from disease and injury as it relates to autonomic function. DITI is a completely pain free and non-invasive procedure, requiring no harmful radiation to the patient.

 Inflammation, the precursor to life threatening diseases such as cancer and heart disease is captured by the highly specialized medical screening tool. DITI creates a full color image of the body’s physiology which is then analyzed by skilled medical doctors. DITI can screen for many common diseases such as: arteriosclerosis, breast disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, disc disease, nerve trauma, sprains, tendonitis, digestive disorders, and much more.

 Recommended by doctors worldwide such as Dr. Mercola and Dr. Christine Northrop as the 1st step in diagnostic imaging, DITI reveals disease in its earliest stage...inflammation. For example, inflammation, lymphatic activity, and increased blood vessel growth that are the precursors to breast cancer are seen in the first 90 days of development with DITI. Comparatively, it takes 8 years for breast cancer to develop a “structure” that can be seen on ultrasound or a mammogram. In November 2009, the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force began advising women to delay regular Mammography screening until age 50, and even then, to get tested only every other year. The government group issued its new guidelines citing evidence that the benefits of regular screening do not justify the potential harms in younger women. The U.S. Preventive Services Task force (USPSTF), funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, published its recommendations in Annals of Internal Medicine; its decision was based on an analysis of existing trials that looked at the impact of mammography on breast-cancer deaths. The task force further recommended that women between ages 50 and 74 get screened every two years instead of annually.

Doctors would have to screen 1,904 women ages 39-49 for a decade to prevent one death, vs. 1,339 women 50-59 and 377 women 60-69, according to a study accompanying the recommendations in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

 Early detection with DITI is aimed at prevention, before there is a more advanced pathology. The earlier the abnormality is detected the better the treatment options will be, resulting in a better outcome. Results of the DITI exam are processed within 48 hours. In collaboration with the patient, Christina formulates a natural health care plan that can be used with conventional medical practices. Carolina Holistic Health’s sworn medical oath of “heal not harm” prevails in all offered services providing the Upstate with effective tools to get well and stay well naturally!
