Regulation Thermometry is based on the analysis of changing skin temperatures evaluated before and after a stress-stimulus of cool air is applied. Because of the connections of the skin located in segments connected to our inner organs, an indirect measurement of the organ and tissue systems can be evaluated, utilizing a phenomena of stress-response through the Spinal-Reflex-Arc. Because this nervous-system pathway of peripheral nerves ‘hooks up’ with the organ and tissue signaling, patterns of response can be evaluated using historical data of disease behaviors contained in those temperature changes specific to the region sampled by the infrared sensor. The test takes 20 minutes and the patient must strip to his/her underwear in order to measure the skin’s response to the room-temperature air. Results are immediate and are evaluated by the physician.
