Biography of Expertg

Pip McCahon is running three Medical Infrared Digital Imaging Clinics in AUSTRALIA – Canberra, Brisbane and Sydney. This very sophisticated technology comes from the United States, where Pip McCahon received her training and continues to be involved as a presenter for professional development conferences with the American Academy of Thermology.

Thermal Imaging (in relation with Sympathetic Nervous System )

Control and regulation of body temperature, called thermal regulation, is the most important role of the Sympathetic nervous system because fluctuations in temperature destroy the vital enzymes, neurotransmitters and peptides necessary for the cells to produce energy and keep the body alive.

The Sympathetic nervous system controls body temperature through distribution of blood flow according to the neurological and arterial pathways of the body. The normal core body temperature is 360Celsius, 98.60 Fahrenheit, and the surface temperature is normally about 33-340Celsius unless there is nerve impingement, circulatory pathology, spinal cord injury or serious neurological disease.

A healthy person’s surface temperature should be symmetrical, the same on the right and the left. Medical Infrared Digital Imaging (MIDI) technology has established scientifically sound parameters which states that any deviation from the symmetrical evenness of a healthy pattern, is accompanied by some type of pain, dysfunction and symptoms that range from numbness and tingling to paralysis.

Pip McCahon – Thermology Analyst from Australia performed Medical Infrared Digital Imaging on Mr.Trivedi. The findings indicated that his lowest body temperature is 68 degrees Fahrenheit and the highest body temperature is 950 Fahrenheit only (20 to 350Celsius).

Mr.Trivedi’s body has extreme temperature contrasts of 4.50centigrade within a few inches in each hand and each foot (distance from the finger tips to center of palm and distance from the ends of the toes to the ankle). There was a 70 centigrade difference between his upper torso and his abdomen, and 50centigrade between the front and back of his torso. There is asymmetry from right to left side and there were patterns of extreme temperature contrast in 40-50 locations throughout the body that were completely unique.

Initial Full Body Report

This report is written in easy to read language for you, our client. Infrared imaging is able to measure your physiology (soft tissue/muscle/nerve activity), providing you with the opportunity to monitor changes in your body function. These changes can provide early warning of developing disease or injuries. Therefore, MIDI should not be viewed as a single assessment, but rather as a monitoring tool, providing a safe economical way of having regular (annual at least) health checks.

Main Observations:

Upper Body

Significant inflammation (red/white/pink) is centralised over the upper vertebrae of your neck, extending across the base of your skull. Distinct inflammation also extends to the right of the lower vertebrae of your neck. Diffuse inflammation radiates throughout the muscles of your neck, shoulders and upper back, particularly right side (images 1-12). Inflammation is seen throughout your forehead, temples, around your eyes, particularly right side of your mouth and over your cheeks, consistent with irritation of your sinus regions. Focal inflammation is evident throughout the glandular regions of your neck/throat (images 2-4, 6-8). These patterns are consistent with irritation/inflammation of your sinus, glands and immune system stimulation.

Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging

Nerves distributed from your spinal cord through your neck vertebrae supply your head/face/neck and shoulders/ arms/hands. Irritation or compromise of these nerves can contribute to symptoms of pain, numbness and tingling, as well as affecting organ function in your head and neck.

Inflammation is centralised over the vertebrae of your upper to mid back, radiating into adjacent muscle regions (image 5). Irritation or compromise of the nerves distributed by these vertebrae can affect organs of your chest and upper abdominal regions. Diffuse inflammation is noted over your upper chest/sternum (image 6).

Increased hyperthermia is evident over the palms of your inner wrists, extending into a focal point in the centre of the palms of your hands. Increased patterns are also seen over the back of your wrists/hands particularly left hand. A localised focal pattern is seen over the base of your left thumb.

Diffuse inflammation is noted over your mid to upper left abdomen, over your oesophagus/stomach regions. Diffuse inflammation extends over both sides of your chest wall/upper abdomen, consistent with irritation of your abdominal oblique/serratus muscle group regions. These patterns are particularly focusing over your left side (images 13-19).

Thermal Imaging

Localised diffuse hyperthermia is seen mid right aspect of your abdomen (see arrow image 13) and over the bladder region of your lower mid abdomen. Cooler patterns (blue/purple/black) extend across your mid to lower abdomen, particularly right side and around your right upper hip/waist region. These patterns can indicate nerve irritation/dermatome distribution.

Lower Back/legs/Torso

Significant inflammation is centralised over the vertebrae of your mid to lower back and coccyx, radiating into both your hips/buttocks (image21). Nerves distributed from the vertebrae of your lower back affect your hips/ thighs/legs and feet. Irritation or compromise of these nerves can contribute to symptoms of pain, numbness and tingling in these regions. Nerves distributed from these vertebrae also supply your lower abdominal organs/ regions. Irritation of these nerves can also produce symptoms in your lower abdomen.

Colder patterns over your lower right thigh and knees and lower legs/heels/feet, particularly right lower leg, are also consistent with irritation of the nerves distributed from your lower back (images 21-31). These patterns can indicate significant root nerve irritation from your lower back. Inflammation is noted over your left knee and lower left leg, consistent with an injury you report to this region.

Thermal Imaging

Slightly increased patterns are seen over the top of your left foot. Increased hyperthermia is evident in the sole of your right foot, consistent with weight transfer from your left leg onto your right leg (images 30-31).
