Breast Thermography Testing and The FDA
The Food and Drug Administration has cleared thermography for several purposes as an adjunctive screening. One of these is breast cancer screening. It is important to understand that breast thermography is not a stand alone procedure for breast cancer screening.
The FDA stance is a valid one, and one that we have embraced. We believe that the more information in the quest for the early detection we have, the more cases we will find. The November 2012 article in the New England Journal of Medicine brought this fact to light. Mammograms have failed to reduce fatalities in cancer across a population base as a sole method of screening. We would like to see research in the area of combining non radiation tests (MRI, Ultrasound, Thermography). It would be simple to incorporate thermography and ultrasound, or thermography and MRI.
Interactive Metronome® (IM) is an evidence-based assessment and training tool that measures & improves Neurotiming, or the synchronization of neural impulses within key brain networks for cognitive, communicative, sensory & motor performance. As the individual activates a trigger in time with a steady auditory beat, IM technology provides real-time auditory and visual feedback for millisecond timing. Knowing whether he is hitting before, after, or exactly in sync with the beat to the millisecond allows the individual to make immediate, online corrections to improve timing & rhythm over the course of training.
Peer reviewed studies repeatedly confirm the importance of timing & rhythm for human performance. According to IM research, improving Neurotiming may result in better function in the following areas:
Expressive & Receptive Language
Reading Comprehension, Rate & Fluency
Athletic Performance (golf, soccer)
HOW TEST MEASUREMENTS ARE MADE
Information exchange is available via the harness system attached to the forehead, ankles and wrists. The harnesses are made of special conductive silicone, which allows for very low- current electrical communication through the computer’s USB port and a multi-functional interface box.
During the testing/assessment phase a client’s biofeedback response is measured in response to nearly 7,000 separate items in 39 separate categories. This process takes approximately 4 to 7 minutes depending upon the speed of the computer. The computer calculates an average value of response between 0 and 2000, which results in a list defining the individual’s reactions or stress potentials. The greatest energy disturbances will be recorded and displayed at the top of the list. Each substance has its own distinctive, complex waveform, which is graphically viewed and represented by a unique fractal image. Additionally, the test matrix contains a detailed description of each substance.
HOW THE L.I.F.E. BIOFEEDBACK SYSTEM WORKS
L.I.F.E. System – Technical Information
The measurement made by the L.I.F.E. System is based upon the relationship between “action & reaction” by applying a challenge to the patient (“action”) and measuring the reaction of the human body as it answers the challenge (“reaction”).
The basic principle of the mode of action of the L.I.F.E. System device is the following: The L.I.F.E. System device sends a square wave signal with amplitude of 5 volts, and a duty cycle of 50% to the harness. The frequency to be applied, for determination of our test, is about 47.3 kHz. The measurement current throughout the body is limited to a maximum of 10mA, but usually no more than 5mA or less.
It can be claimed that when the situation inside the human body is disturbed due to a particular imbalance, the physical situation will become different. Any abnormal condition can be considered as a kind of imbalance, it can be easily seen that the temperature inside the area of interest is different. As a consequence, the shape of the signal that is detected will differ from the one measured in a non-conditional situation. The differences can be measured easily by detecting the time difference, as described above, and those time differences are characteristic for the respective situations. Evidence that they can be measured and detected was given by the outcome of the clinical investigation.

Biomarker stressor Virtual Items
A typical ZYTO scan begins with a scan of digital signatures representing internal body parts and systems such as:
- TCM Meridians
While the Compass and Balance scan a set number of biomarkers, the Select and Elite allow you to scan for more than 1,500 additional biomarkers. Some of these biomarker categories are:
- Brain areas
Other stressor Virtual Items
In addition to biomarkers, which are a subset of stressor Virtual Items, the Select and Elite can also scan for other digital signatures that influence the body. The software contains thousands of these items in a variety of categories including:
- Heavy metals
- Electromagnetic fields
- Lifestyle choices
Balancer Virtual Items
While a scan may consist of only a stressor Virtual Item scan to reveal which items may warrant further attention, a Balancer Virtual Item scan often follows to determine which items bring the stressor VIs into range. The ZYTO software contains thousands of balancer VIs from over 200 health and wellness companies in these categories:
- Essential oils
- Flower Essences
Additional balancer Virtual Items
With the Select and Elite, you can scan for additional balancer VIs in addition to nutritional products. These additional items include:
- Lifestyle choices
In total, there are over 40,000 items that you can scan for using the ZYTO software. The scanning process is made easier with a personal item inventory and pre-built scans that guide the selection of items. Due to the amount and variety of available data points, a ZYTO scan can reveal factors, trends, and patterns that haven’t been previously considered, allowing you to make better decisions in a shorter amount of time for optimized personal wellness.
