European Thermography is a non-invasive, whole body screen designed for men, women, and children. The findings prioritize root causes brewing beneath the surface of your symptoms, as depicted in the proverbial iceberg.
Your appointment will last 1+ hour, which will include the test and a review of the findings. The test will take 25 minutes, and then a report will be automatically generated to review with you. You will receive guidance in light of the findings and your history and current health situation, as well as remedy suggestions.
We will email you the appointment details and forms once you are scheduled. Follow the test preparations and be sure to arrive at the office 10-15 minutes early to relax and acclimate.
Feel free to CONTACT US if you have any questions.
The test involves taking two sets of temperature readings on your skin at over 100 specific locations, which takes about 25 minutes. The procedure is easy, and (best of all) non-toxic, gentle, and painless.
The test is done standing. We begin by gently taking temperature measurements at specific locations on your face and neck with an infrared temperature sensor. You are then asked to remove your clothing, except for your underpants, so that the remainder of the measurements can be taken on your front and back torso.
The temperature sensor is used to gently touch the skin and take the temperature readings. No electricity or vibrations or anything is emitted into your body. It's an infrared thermal sensor, a sophisticated medical thermometer.
After these initial readings are taken, you then remain standing unclothed in your undies for 10 minutes. (You will likely feel cool and get the goose bumps.) After the 10 minutes and while still undressed, we take a second temperature reading at all of the same skin locations and conclude the test.
Once the test is completed, the data is then sent electronically to Alfa Thermodiagnostics, Inc. to generate your report.
During your consultation, we review your report and findings in light of your history and any current complaints. You receive customized guidelines and natural medicine recommendations as well as referrals to local practitioners for therapies or further testing as needed. The report can be forwarded to your physicians and practitioners as well.
Preparations for Your Thermography Appointment
After you schedule your appointment, you will be sent important test preparations that begin 48 hours before your appointment date. For testing accuracy, the preparations make sure that your autonomic nervous system is as unstimulated as possible at the time of your test. You can review them now if you like.
Come to the appointment wearing comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that can be easily removed. Wear a long-sleeved button/zip-up shirt and long pants, even if the weather is hot or humid. Avoid synthetic fibers and tight clothing. Do not wear a bra or remove it at least 15 minutes prior to the test.
Do not shower or bathe the morning of the test. If necessary, sponge bathing with tepid water is allowable. You may shower or bathe the night before.
Do not use body sprays, skin creams or lotions, or cosmetics the morning of the test.
Do not drink coffee, black tea, or caffeinated beverages, and do not smoke the morning of the test. A light breakfast is acceptable, but nothing piping hot.
Come to appointment hydrated; drink 12 – 16 oz. of water 1/2 – 2 hours before the test.
Do not exercise the morning of the test. This includes running, yoga, Pilates, etc.
Stop taking all non-essential supplements and remedies 24 – 36 hours prior to the test. Continue all prescription drugs.
Refrain from ‘regulative’ and therapeutic practices within 36 hours prior to the test. This includes acupuncture, bio-energetic treatments, therapeutic massage, classical homeopathy, chiropractic treatments, etc.
Refrain from dentistry and dental cleanings at least 1 week prior to the test.
Women cannot be tested during the first or second day of the menstrual period. The lower abdominal points warm up and create false readings.
Arrive 15 – 20 minutes before your appointment so that your body has a chance to relax and acclimate before you are tested.
Remove your glasses when you get to the office, as there are sinus points on the nose that will be tested.
Turn off cell phones and electronic devices as soon as you get to the office. They cannot be on during your appointment. Electromagnetic radiation affects the nervous system and can alter your test results.
Do not drink alcohol for at least 24 hours prior to the test.
For insurance reimbursement, you can submit your sales receipt to your insurance company as we do not take insurance. On the receipt will be the following insurance codes:
CPT Insurance Codes:
95923 Testing of autonomic nervous system function
93740 Temperature gradient studies
93799 Unlisted cardiovascular service
You can call your insurance company ahead of time and ask if any of the CPT evaluation codes are covered by your policy.
It is often helpful for reimbursement if you have a doctor's recommendation and an appropriate diagnostic code, so ask about that too. For example, here are typical ICD-10 breast diagnostic codes that your physician could use:
N61 Inflammatory disorders of breast
N63 Unspecified lump in breast
N64.4 Mastodynia, breast pain/tenderness

It works in alliance with Nature and with the life-generating forces within your body. Therapies unleash the body's innate healing regulation and healthy cellular regeneration by reestablishing a healthy biological terrain through detoxification, nutrition, and microbial symbiosis. It's bio-logical, and it's effective.
