Infrared Medical Thermography is a non-invasive, pain- and radiation-free test, which accurately measures and monitors the body’s heat emissions to detect abnormalities in its processes and functions. The images offer a physiological rather than structural view of the body to detect the original source of the pain, allowing for early and appropriate intervention.

IMT is used for a wide range of patients suffering from chronic pain including, neurological and muscular-skeletal disorders, arthritis, diabetes and sport injury. It can spare patients from some unnecessary surgeries, amputations and ineffective nerve blocks, as well as monitor the results of treatment. For many chronic pain sufferers, thermography is the only visual test available to prove the existence of pain.

Medical thermography and Kinergetics. Date of exam: 07/06/2003

Introduction: An IRT represents the pattern of heat emission from surface and deep structures of the body recorded by an infrared electronic heat sensor camera. The thermography in individuals who had no disruption of the heat emission, show a symmetrical pattern on right and left side of midline. The non-dominant extremity may be minimally cooler than the dominant side, but this difference is negligible. In pathological states, the linear isometric patterns of temperature distribution are disrupted showing asymmetry in thermatomal, or dermatomal distribution. The pathologic area may show areas of increased or decreased heat emission (hyperthermia or hypothermia). The camera sensor is also capable of producing black & white views, which may add more information regarding any dermatomal nerve root dysfunction.

Brief procedure protocol and background:

The patient was disrobed and equilibrated at a constant temperature of 210C for 10-15 minutes, using strict clinical protocols1. Standard baseline images were obtained using high-resolution computerized infrared imaging equipment.

The upper body study included infared thermal images of the posterior cervical, posterior thoracic, anterior chest (breasts were not images on female patients), posterior arms, anterior arms, radial forearms, ulnar forearms, and dorsal and palmar hands.

The lower body study included infrared thermal images of the lumbar spine, posterior buttock, posterior thigh, anterior thigh, the lateral thigh, medial thigh, anterior leg, posterior leg, lateral leg, medial leg, and dorsal and plantar foot.

Please see below 4 patients' case studies with images before and after the Kinergetics balancing.

Ref: 1. S.Gulevich et al, Stress Infrared Teletermography is useful in the diagnosis of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Type 1 (formerly Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy), The Clinical Journal of Pain, 1997, 13:50-59

Patient 1: 49 y.o. female with consistent pain/stiffness in the posterior neck, around both shoulder blades, mid- back and lower back areas.

Image 1a - Baseline: Diffuse nerve irritation on the C3-C6 (more on the R) and in both subscapular areas (C7-T1), characterised by clear hyperthermic pattern. Central hyperthermia (L3-L5) with more irritation on the R and S1 (both R and L).

Image 1b - Immediately after kinergetics (5-10 mins):

- Immediate significant temperature reduction (reduction of nerve irritation, better muscular blood perfusion) in the R subscapular area (delta t = 10C vs baseline); L subscapular area (delta t = 0.8 0C vs baseline); lumbar area (delta t = 0.40C vs baseline); posterior thoracic area (delta t = 0.30C vs baseline).

- Other: Hyperthermia becomes more pronounced in the posterior neck area C3-C7.

Discussion: Kinergetics balancing resulted in immediate and significant temperature reduction, which may be consistent with reduction of nerve irritation/inflammation, improved blood supply to the peripheral tissues and muscular groups. Thermographic findings are considered clinically significant with the temperature differences of 1.00C or above.

We therefore can conclude that the kinergetics balancing resulted in a clinically significant reduction of inflammation (and pain) in the both subscapular areas. Some effect was seen in the mid-back and lower back areas.

The patient will benefit from further sessions concentrating on the posterior neck and mid- & lower back areas.

The patient reported immediate relief from tension in the neck and back areas.

Patient 2: A 45 y.o. man with mild hay fever symptoms (blocked nose, more on the L).

Image 2a - Baseline: diffuse hyperthermia on both maxillary sinuses with some hyperthermia around the L orbite. A central ("Branches") hyperthermic pattern on the anterior chest, which may be reflective of bronchial tree vascular distribution.

Image 2b - Immediately after kinergetics (5-10 mins):

Significant reduction of hyperthermia around both maxillary sinuses by 0.60C on the L and 0.40C on the R).

Disappearance of the hyperthermic pattern on the anterior chest with temperature reduction by 0.70C.

Easier breathing reported by the patient.

Patient 3: 52 y.o. female with constant pain in the R shoulder and reduced mobility, particularly in overhead activity. Brachial plexitis (?) diagnosed 2001; i/m Vit B therapy with some temporary relief.

Image 3a - Baseline: An area of hypothermia identified on the R T1-T3 levels. This may be consistent with nerve irritation (sympathetic overactivity) and/or vascular spasm on the R T1-T3. An area of "spot hyperthermia" on the R is consistent with R T6 irritation.

Image 3b - Immediately after kinergetics: Diffuse hyperthermia on the T1-T3 levels with temperature increases by 0.70C on the Left and 0.90C on the Right. The "spot" hyperthermia on the R T6 is replaced by diffuse hyperthermia across the T6-T8 levels (the temperature increase on the left by 0.90C.

Discussion: Temperature changes observed are consistent with reduction of sympathetic system activity and improved blood circulation. The patient reported pain reduction and improved mobility in the R shoulder.

Learning Problems

LEARNING PROBLEMS – ADHD TRIAL. Concerned with the current trend of ADHD I decided to trial four case studies of teenage children medically diagnosed with ADHD. I offered these children, three boys and one girl between the ages of 11 to 16, four sessions consecutively over one month using solely Kinergetics. In all cases these children showed remarkable improvements after the first session. One boy improved his spelling scores from 3 out of 20 to 17 out of 20. The behavior in all children improved dramatically after the second session with glowing reports from school and home. The parents were extremely relieved to see there was no longer anything wrong with their children and their lives returning to normality. Also two parents were glad to take their boys off medication. It is now 18 months since the trials and all children show continued improvement at school. Sherril Jepson, Kinergetics Instructor Aug. 1998.

LEARNING PROBLEMS - DYSLEXIA TRIAL. Recently I have been working with 48 children ages from 6 to 14 with dyslexic tendencies. I use a combination of Kinergetics, Edu-K and Applied Physiology for corrections with profound results. Before commencing any corrections I always test for T.M.J. (jaw) imbalance. Out of 48 of the children tested, 29 had an imbalance. I balance the jaw using the RESET technique. On 5 of the children I purposely did not correct the jaw, and the dyslexic corrections did not hold. I then corrected the jaw using RESET and got the results I always get. The first part of the corrections is cross crawl (touch left knee with right hand, right knee with left hand in sequence). This particular 8 year old boy could not even start. He seemed to have 6 hands and 4 knees. His mother told me that at 18 months old he had been accidentally hit in the mouth with a railway tie that fell from a pile and the mouth and top gum were badly cut. I did RESET on him and when I had finished he did cross crawl perfectly. Dave Everett Jan. 1997.

Bioelectrical Body Composition Analyzer

Master Class Perth Australia August 2003

There are some variables with the testing. The time of day may make a slight difference, stress levels, nutrition, amount of water drunk etc.

What is significant is that during this workshop every student improved their hydration and phase angle (a measure of cellular health).

The machine used was a Quantum 11 RJL Systems from the US.

Several students were tested before and after a RESET workshop. The machine was set to test the Kidney energy. There was a significant improvement after the workshop.
