Thermography is thermal imaging either for the full body or breast. It is used for the early detection of many diseases and disorders.
WHAT IS THERMOGRAPHY?
Thermography is a safe, adjunctive screening method helpful in the diagnosis and documentation of diseases. Thermography can be used as a whole body approach to wellness with the understanding that there is no "normal" asymmetrical heat in the body. Thermal cameras can detect heat on the skin surface that may show underlying pathologies. Thermography is an excellent tool to assess your health.
This state-of-the-art screening procedure captures heat images of the breast to aid in the early detection of breast cancer, in some cases up to 10 years earlier than a mammogram, with absolutely NO RADIATION. Thermography can establish overall breast health and is an excellent test for assessing fibrocystic breasts and response to treatment. Thermography is a helpful screening for early detection and prevention.

Ashley Ageloff received her bachelor’s degree in Education and is certified as a health coach, yoga instructor and thermographer. She merges her skills in teaching, and knowledge of health to educate people about thermography and wellness. Her passion is to spread awareness about health modalities that can effectively help others.
For a long time, Ashley was on a quest to live healthier. She got to a point in her life where she was stressed and unhealthy. She realized that the bread, sugar, and coffee she was consuming were contributing to adrenal fatigue and overall exhaustion. A short time later, Ashley was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease, which is an autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid. She knew it was time for a change. This is when Ashley met with a health coach and along her journey, she changed the way she lives, thinks, breathes and eats. Ashley is grateful she gets to inspire and guide others to do the same.
When Ashley found Thermography she realized that this screening tool can save lives, and prevent health issues from developing. Since Ashley’s passion is prevention, she decided to get certified as a thermographer and spread awareness about this non-invasive, radiation-free screening tool. Now Ashley speaks at different locations on the benefits and science of Medical Thermography.
