WHOLE BODY THERMOGRAPHY TEST PREP INSTRUCTIONS

THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE NOT SUGGESTIONS.  FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS WILL RESULT IN INACCURATE TEST RESULTS OR RESCHEDULING FEES!

  • Refrain from dentistry and dental cleanings at least 3 days prior to the test.

  • 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.

  • Do not drink alcohol for at least 24 hours 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.

  • Do not exercise the morning of the test. This includes running, yoga, Pilates, etc.

  • Do not shower or bathe the morning of the test. However, a quick shower using only tepid water is allowable, as is a shower or bath 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 and nothing frozen.

  • Come to appointment hydrated; drink 12 – 16 oz of water 1/2 – 2 hours before the test.

  • Come to the appointment wearing comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that can be easily removed. Wear a long-sleeved shirt and long pants, even if the weather is hot or humid. Avoid tight clothing and synthetic fibers.

  • Women should not wear a bra or remove it at least 15 minutes prior to the test.

  • Remove your glasses when you get to the office, as there are sinus points on the nose that will be tested.

  • Turn off your cell phone when you arrive for your appointment. Cell phones should be forbidden in the thermography room or should be turned off as electromagnetic radiation affects the nervous system.

  • Arrive 15 – 20 minutes before your appointment so that you can fill out any paper work, and give your body a chance to relax before you are tested.
