The noblest foundation for medicine is love. It is love which teaches us the art of healing. Without love, true healing cannot take place.   


A Bio-regulatory Medical Approach is Unique

The foundational principal of Bio-regulatory Medicine is that the innate intelligence that made your body knows how to heal your body.



The role of bio-regulatory medicine is to identify and remove whatever agents are blocking the healing process while supporting and helping to restore the body’s innate ability to rehabilitate and regenerate. However, in today's chaotic, stress-filled environment of unhealthy food, toxic dead water, poor sleep, wifi, 5G, EMF exposures, chemicals and pollutants, lack of movement and fresh air etc… it throws your body, brain and energy systems out of balance.

 We also know that healing cannot be achieved if we don’t correctly identify what the root cause of the imbalance is. We know that treating and assessing the whole person is directed at both underlying and immediate causative factors while also recognizing the interconnectivity between physical and nonphysical components of the human body and energy systems. For example we know that someone could seem physically healthy, but an unstable emotional environment or toxic influences can have a negative impact on their terrain and be a precursor to future illness.

At the root of most illnesses are psycho-emotional and environmental toxic blockades that overwhelm the body’s regulatory systems. Consider a barrel that is filling with water. Every stressful event, every bite of toxic food, every exposure to mercury filings is akin to pouring more water in that barrel. With every drop, more symptoms appear. Once the barrel is full it over flows into a disease state. But while everyone has a barrel, the influencing factors that fill each barrel are unique to each person. We all have different life stressors, dietary habits, thought processes, past traumas, and environments. Each person, depending on their emotional type or miasm (inherited predispositions toward physical and/or mental illnesses or weaknesses), also adapts in his or her own way to these barrel filling factors.

Addressing the Cause not the Symptom

It is important to not get caught up in chasing symptoms or what is showing on the surface that would be like putting a band-aid on a wound that has deeper issues going on. A core principle of Bio-regulatory medicine is to address the cause of illnesses, rather than simply treating or suppressing symptoms. In other words, we concern ourselves with the “why” as well as with the “what” of an illness or disease. Because of the patient-centred approach to care and the need to understand the underlying cause of health problems, visits are typically much longer than those with a medical doctor. I focus on investigating the possible underlying dysfunctions and often identify functional disturbances before illness sets in.

I value and emphasize prevention and health promotion through lifestyle and nutrition. Prevention is the best and, from a long-term perspective, the most affordable type of health care. For clients who have already developed health issues, Bio-regulatory medicine is a highly effective approach.

Through the integrated use of clinical nutrition, botanical/herbal medicines, Chinese medicine, nutraceuticals, Qigong, acupressure, homeopathic medicine, craniosacral therapy, various physical therapies, energy-psychology modalities, Reiki and quantum based healing techniques, lifestyle and spiritual counselling there are many options to choose from on your health journey.

My Promise to You:

As a former Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine for 30 years, it is my desire to assist you to identify your body’s primary stressors and interferences that are contributing to illness and disease so your body can heal. I practice a unique and very comprehensive energy based approach to preventing disease, improving health and supporting the person – not treat the disease.

I am trained and specialize in many natural and quantum based energy modalities designed to balance mind, body, energy systems and spirit. I integrate functional medical assessments, electrodermal testing and applied kinesiology (Divine muscle testing), Rife scans and treatments, and Biodynamic Light therapy with a broad range of natural intuitive energy therapies to promote better health, support and stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself and come into wholeness.

I will take the time to listen to your concerns and thoroughly understand your goals, answer your questions, and empower you in adopting a leadership role in your own health care. I see each client as an individual, and address their unique physical, genetic, constitutional, environmental, lifestyle, attitudinal, energetic and emotional aspects. You can expect to become an active participant in your own health and wellness program!

Let the healing journey begin.

What to expect at your first visit

Your first appointment will last approximately 1 1/2 hours. We will discuss your chief concerns in detail and review your completed health forms.  Relevant aspects of your lifestyle and any other issues that may be affecting your health will be discussed.  Every new client will receive a relevant physical exam, Electrodermal evaluation & testing, which may include an Applied Kinesiology (Divine muscle testing), Qigong and various energy assessments as part of your initial intake. Some clients may require a Live blood cell analysis. This in-depth assessment allows me to develop a thorough understanding of your current state of health, your bodies’ primary stressors, level of toxicity, energy blockages and vitality. This information is vital to provide you with accurate, safe and effective care. Recommendations for relevant blood or lab tests may take place. I will discuss with to you how the many tools of Bio-regulatory & Energy Medicine can be used to help you reach your goals for health, recovery and wellness.

Your second visit will be approximately 60 minutes and will generally take place 3-4 weeks of your initial appointment.  It will consist of relevant evaluation and testing, a review of findings and health evaluations in order to provide you with an appropriate health plan moving forward. Any relevant health history information that we did not discuss during the first visit will be reviewed at this time. Recommendations for any further evaluations will be made and heal care options will be outlined and begin if they already haven’t been started.

Most follow-up visits are 45-60 minutes and will be used to provide you with ongoing care, to monitor your progress and address any other concerns that may arise. Expect that a Electrodermal scans or Applied Kinesiology (muscle testing) or other energy testing will be a part of most follow-up visits.

In the event that you require care for an acute concern (ie. treatment for a cold or flu, checking a child’s ear for infection, blood pressure check, urine dip stick to check for infection), we will make every effort to accommodate a same-day appointment for existing patients.

Please note, it is your duty and responsibility to inform me of any changes in medications, health status, or new laboratory test results as they occur from your regular medical doctor. This information is imperative to share with me, I am not responsible for lack of disclosure on your part for any missing health information vital to your care.

Craniosacral Therapy 

What is it? It is an entirely new way of getting to the root cause of a wide range of illnesses and disorders purely by a very specific technique directed to the bones of the head and sacrum.

Dawn is trained and has 30 years of experience in Craniosacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation from the Upledger Institute.

Craniosacral therapy is rooted in the understanding that the whole body is connected by fascia, and that this sheet of fascia throughout the body is intimately connected to the movement of the craniosacral system. The craniosacral system, sometimes known as the Bio-cranial system, is a closed system, which produces a micro-hydraulic movement of the cranial bones, down the spinal canal to the sacrum. This movement is involuntary and is essential to the body’s life process in every conceivable way. It’s like a pumping station, and the rhythm oscillates approximately 12 cycles per minute. When this system is functioning properly, your body feels balanced, all muscles, tendons, bones, organs and connective tissue are receiving healthy support and signals throughout the body. When there are disruptions in the system caused by a wide variety of things (birth canal trauma, any bodily injury or trauma, electromagnetic interferences, piercings, surgical trauma, implants or scar tissue, dental fixtures, the stress of any kind, life…) your cranial system loses its rhythm and you get symptoms. Fact is, virtually every one of us is “flawed” or “injured” from birth in such a way that the bones of the head do not come into a particular relationship with one another from Day 1 of our life and it can result in a ‘flawed’ spinal alignment and abnormal cranial flow. We carry on in spite of this birth “flaw” and for the most part carry on with our lives apparently normally in spite of the levels of dysfunction in the system - at least for a time until the body’s compensation mechanisms can no longer hold normal function and symptoms appear.

Symptoms can range from headaches, sinus pressure, neck, back and joint pains, dystonia anywhere in the body and maladaptive structural alignment. How you experience symptoms to an imbalanced craniosacral system is unique to you. Your only symptom, for example, could be not thinking clearly, anxiety, ADD or feeling tired.

Bio-cranial treatments are unique because by addressing the bones of the head we find a whole range of disorders are improved as the whole body is rebalanced. Health issues like: neck and back pain, joint pains, fibromyalgia, sciatica, disk problems, asthma, arthritis, balance and vertigo problems, skin disorders, chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, tinnitus, inflammation of any kind including sport injuries or trauma improve dramatically.

Craniosacral Therapy uses a very gentle touch and is non-invasive in its full-body approach to healing. The goal is to open fully the cranial bones to their fullest and restore the cranial-sacral pumping action and remove restrictions within the system to restore anatomical function that affects all systems in the body. Using our hands, we are able to feel the craniosacral rhythm and assess how it is reflecting throughout the rest of the body to determine what we may be able to do to improve its functioning. Because the whole body and structures are covered or connected to the fascia, we can assess the rhythm and function of any organ or structure in the body. With cranial treatment, we are able to release strains throughout the body and regain function and reduce pain.

Craniosacral therapy is also especially useful in calming the vaso-vagal nerve (which keeps the body in stress mode). During a craniosacral session the autonomic nervous system is “reset” and brings the parasympathetic nervous system back into balance from chronic stress. The effects is a full body deep calm which is heavenly. In our busy stressful modern lives, regular craniosacral treatments are a gift for your health.

How does your cranial system get out of balance?

How does your cranial system get out of balance?

Many factors like stress and tension, a fall, trauma, improper breathing, birth canal challenges, sleeping in a maladaptive position, repetitive movements, poor hydration, postural misalignment, surgery, dental work, braces, body piercings, sports injuries, electromagnetic or radio frequency stress of modern buildings, WiFi, cell phones, and living etc…. Many cranial stressors occur in our life time and they accumulate to cause dysfunction in our physical body. Getting your cranial system moving correctly can not only bring tremendous physical relief but emotional relief also.


From newborns to the elderly and for all sorts of pain and injury, craniosacral therapy can resolve some of the most chronic and acute health challenges with its gentle hands-on technique. Treatments are done fully clothed, lying on a treatment bed – Relaxed. We usually start at the feet and head and then go where the body directs its’ needs. Craniosacral treatments are very good for headaches, tinnitus, digestive disorders, heart function, respiratory issues, the pain of any type (injury, strains, childbirth misalignments, neck strains, stress, etc….).

Treatments usually last 60 minutes. Receiving Craniosacral therapy is very relaxing and positively pleasurable! It’s a good re-set for life stress. You feel the differences immediately as your body regains proper fascial and cranial rhythms.

Electrodermal Screening (EDS): EAV Kindling and Avatar System

EAV is an acronym for Electroacupuncture According to Voll (Dr. Voll the developer of the technology), which is used to generally describe Electrodermal Screening devices. . The Kindling instrument is a German EDS system, The Avatar instrument is a US EDS system, both designed upon the principles of Electro Acupuncture according to Voll. These types of instruments obtain information from the electrical conductivity of the acupuncture system, and are known and relied upon worldwide for detailed health assessments.

Dawn Cormier has been using Electrodermal devices for over 25 years and is academy trained in using these devices to assess your body’s bioenergetic balance and your meridian system.

Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

These electro dermal devices are utilized by testing bioelectric conductance on specific acupuncture points of the hand and foot. A probe is used to contact the corresponding acupuncture point to get a digital reading, it is painless and enjoyable.

This device is also used to test various products for compatibility, and assess intolerances to various substances. Electrodermal screening is an avenue that allows me to monitor your progress and offer specific and individualized solutions to your health challenges. This screening also assesses your bodies’ primary stressors, level of biotoxicosis (toxicity load), causal chains, overall function and balance of various organ systems, identify deficiencies and mesenchymal stress in your body.

Electrodermal scanning provides a functional assessment of organs prior to their symptomatic dysfunction or the development of disease, it identifies internal stressors that usually go undetected by conventional tests, before disease ensues.

The full meridian scan

The scan covers all the major organs and deeper systems that are extremely valuable in understanding underlying stress or dis-ease in the body.


  • Small intestine
  • Large intestine
  • Stomach
  • Hormones
  • Adrenals
  • Thyroid
  • Nervous system
  • Lymphatics
  • Liver
  • Kidneys
  • Sinuses
  • Lungs
  • Digestion
  • Food intolerances
  • Toxins
  • And more…


It's totally amazing!


Once the full screen is completed, the priority point is determined by the Avatar or Kindling Device and this is the point that further testing is done from. It’s called the priority point. The importance of this point is that it is the best point to access the health of the whole person, according to Voll's years of experience.


For example, the priority point may be the liver, indicating that the liver needs help, or will need shortly. However the patient, off this point, may then test for a complete range of bowel remedies and no liver ones at all. This is called the "causal chain" and indicates that the liver requires the bowel remedies to help it, and as we know the bowel clears its toxins into the liver.


In this scenario just cleansing the liver and not the bowel would not get to the CAUSE of the problem as the bowel toxicity will just re-fill the liver. This is the advantage of having a highly accurate assessment device, it can show the causal chain of events and enable me to track events back to get to the cause of the problem to give long term relief.


This approach digs deeper to find the CAUSE and not just the symptom. This evaluation tool is one of many used in assessing your overall health and function.


Remedy testing


It is also possible to test remedies and supplements that will then be specifically chosen for the person tested. There are remedies for different organs, drainage remedies to shift toxins and ones for specific problems like candida, bacteria overgrowth, viral problems, mycoplasma patterns and many others. In fact there are hundreds that can be tested to see which ones suite your needs best.


In the example above if the liver point tested up for bowel remedies and one of those was the one to clear candida then we can assume that the liver is actually being affected by candida overgrowth in the gut!


Food intolerance/sensitivity testing


Along the same lines as remedy testing it is possible to test for food intolerances or sensitivities. For example if the allergy acupoint is used and this reads at a 50, so it is well balanced, and then a food it tested and it throws this point out of balance to a 30 then it is indicated that there is a bad reaction to the food and it should be avoided.


These EDS devices are not a “gold standard” diagnostic tool, they cannot say you have this or that disease. EAV devices read "energetic" health. So we can get an idea of weakened or stressed organs.


Where it is incredibly helpful is with issues that could have many causes. For example, fatigue problems can originate from the gut, from toxicity or the liver, from thyroid / adrenal / or other hormone problems. But which one to treat first? The EDS devices help prioritize this. For example the Avatar scan often indicates that treatment for many hormone problems starts with healing the gut. Why could this be? Well, the gut delivers toxins to the liver and the liver is responsible for managing the breakdown of hormones. If the liver doesn't do its job then excess hormones float around causing problems. But if you give hormone balancing remedies then you haven't fixed the liver, the source of the problem and if you cleanse the liver then it just tops up with toxins from the bowel. So commonly, it is cleanse the bowel first, which helps the liver, which then helps the hormones.



Note: This device is being used for investigative purposes only and is not being interpreted for a conventional diagnosis, however, specifications for this device support its use for diagnosing, treating, mitigating and preventing diseases, disorders or abnormal physical states in human beings. EAV evaluation provided by your practitioner is not a conventional diagnosis as is commonly understood in the medical system. It is a valuable evaluation of your body’s state of function and health according to your bioenergetic meridian systems and assists your me in assessing and evaluating your current state of health and imbalances that have an impact on your wellness.

EAV testing is done in conjunction with appropriate examination, medial history, conventional, functional and alternative tests to formulate an accurate evaluation of your health status. It is not a stand alone diagnostic tool.

 EAV device is an electronic FDA approved device designed by Dr. Reinhold Voll is used to measures the skin’s electrical activity at designated acupuncture points (hand & foot). The Vistron Kindling device is widely used in the North Americas and in Europe for evaluation purposes and is compliant with the EN Guideline 93/42/EWG. It combines modern metrological prerequisites for reliable evaluation with various therapeutic applications to regulate the body’s energetic meridians.

The Vistron EAV device was a Class II Medical Device by health Canada for many years, however no longer is cleared by Health Canada in this regard since 2017. Manufacturer’s specifications are for measuring and evaluating various products, incompatibilities and electrical potential on acupuncture points associated with organ function.

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)

Bio Electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) is a method of assessing your “body composition” – the measurement of fat in relation to lean & water body mass. It is an integral part of a health and nutrition assessment providing the practitioner with a baseline of health markers. Re-evaluating your BIA at set intervals can give the practitioner information critical to your treatment protocol and progress towards health.

Most new patients over 10 years old receive a baseline BIA test to help with your overall health assessment.

Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

Who Can Benefit From BIA Testing?

BIA testing is very useful tool in the following situations:
Achieving optimal body composition, and tracking weight loss/gain and weight management. Tracking body composition during athletic training is very useful. BIA testing can track how the body is holding up to intense training by following things like phase angle, water distribution and also maintaining lean muscle tissues.

BIA can also track caloric needs during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

BIA is also useful in tracking health parameters during a detoxification program.

BIA is a useful marker of overall cellular health and metabolism.

Nutritional Coaching

Nutrition is paramount and foundational to your health. We are presented with many opportunities throughout our days to impact our wellness, the question is; with each meal or snack, are we choosing to add to our health, or take away from it? Knowledge is power. The power of knowing how food impacts your health is a powerful tool to change dysfunctional habits that lead to illness. How we consciously choose to nutritionally support our bodies will ultimately determine our level of health or disease, depending on genetics and other lifestyle choices.

Health is created in the kitchen! There is no amount of exercise that will un-do poor choices in food consumption. In today’s world where large corporate profits come before natural, healthy and sustainable food growing practices and manufacturing, it leaves us with sometimes overwhelming choices of “bad food”. Unless you are keenly aware of the benefits of organically grown, whole, unprocessed foods, and eat accordingly, you are likely suffering from the western condition of ‘overconsumption and malnourishment’.

“When the science of medicine reaches perfection, treatment will be given by foods, ailments, fragrant fruits, and vegetables…” Abdu’l-Baha


Many clients come in very frustrated with their “diet” and default way of eating. They have tried everything, and they still suffer from bloating, fatigue after meals, skin rashes, low energy and weight gain… I admit, dietary choices and protocols can be confusing, overwhelming and frustrating. It seems there is a diet for anything and everything out there. Question is, is it the correct diet for you?

The first place to begin is identifying dietary deficiencies and excesses, food sensitivities and poor food choices. This is critical in my opinion for beginning the journey to building your health.

Did you know that even healthy foods can make you unwell. For example if you have insulin issues, natural honey can set your metabolism into a tail spin. If you have autoimmune thyroid disease, eating soya milk in place of cows milk may be the wrong choice for you. That’s why it’s a good idea to start with a personalized food sensitivity panel to determine your specific foods that trigger your gut immune response, trigger inflammation and imbalance your microbiome which can all lead to leaky-gut (a condition which undermines your health daily). Once you are clear on your trigger sensitivity foods, you can avoid your personal offending foods and heal your gut and regain health.

We are all unique, one diet and lifestyle does not suite everyone. I will suggest a lifestyle and personalized holistic nutrition program suited for your individual needs. A therapeutic lifestyle program which is designed to help you live your life in a way that improves your health so you can show up being the best version of you. This involves making choices every day that will enhance your health and help prevent disease, enabling you to achieve a full, healthy life.

You have the power to influence your cells, even your DNA with every bite of food, I will encourage and empower you to signal your body for health instead of disease.

Lifestyle Coaching

Dawn has extensive training in Healthy lifestyle habits. A large part of your visit will involve counseling on issues that are applicable to your needs like stress reduction, sleep hygiene, exercise, emotional well-being, and spiritual health. These areas of life help you achieve balance and happiness in every aspect of your life.

Your lifestyle coach is a resource for you in helping achieve your health and wellness goals. It is well known that our moods and emotional wellness serve as a regulator of our health and physiology. This may involve sessions looking at emotional blocks or subconscious maladaptive patterns that keep you stuck in reactive patterns that no longer serve you and your well-being. It is well proven that your thoughts become your beliefs and your beliefs run your life. Leading your life with conscious intention will change your biology!



Acupressure and Oriental Medicine

According to Oriental medicine, the body is governed by energy and divided into meridians. When Energy is deficient, in excess, or stuck, pain and illness happen. There are 12 major meridian channels, each corresponding to a specific organ system and flows in a specific direction and has divergent meridians. Acupuncture and herbal formulas work to balance the energy flow in these meridians and therefore the organs they correspond to.


Acupressure sessions involve gentle pressure and circular motion on acupuncture points to activate & open energy channels enhancing your own healing power. Your body will balance energy as its intelligence guides the work to unblock energy and tonify various organs that need assistance. Treatments usually take 30 minutes and are gentle and relaxing.


Dawn has used traditional acupressure and Qigong for over 30 years. Each acupressure session is enhanced with Qi Gong energy to assist the body in rebalancing itself to a healthy set point.

Acupressure can be used for:

What is Qi~ssage?

Qi~ssage is a fabulous and powerful technique that combines the energy principles of Qigong with the art of Massage, which is why it’s called Qi~ssage. Developed by Qigong Master Chunyi Lin who envisions “a world without pain and a healer in every home”. This combination of Eastern Chinese Energy Medicine and Western Massage is a magical and healing experience.

Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

How Qi~ssage works

There are 12 major energy channels in your body discovered by Traditional Chinese Medicine called meridians. These meridian channels have hundreds of points along them called acupuncture points. Each of these points affects the balance and flow of your body’s energy and function.

There are a couple dozen of these important acupuncture points that are vitally important in helping you heal and maintain your optimal health and wellness. Qi~ssage addresses each important point by massaging them (acupressure) and directing Qigong energy in a very specific order along your body from head to toe. This is done gently with the practitioner’s hands and fingers to stimulate the points.

Qi~ssage like qigong, can help you direct the transformation of your body’s healing energy for the better and remove blockages.

How does Qi~ssage feel?

A Qi~ssage treatment is done is a sitting position fully clothed. You are relaxed, and as you experience your channels opening and balancing, many experience pain relief, deep relaxation and your body’s vitality waking up. Qi~ssage continues to work hours after the treatment as your healing intelligence of your body directs the energy where it is needed.

Qi~ssage is a key to optimal health

Keeping your energy channels open and your energy flowing smoothly is the key to optimal health, wellness, healing and longevity. Qi~ssage can help you keep your healing energy flowing and prevent energy blockages that lead to pain and disease. Regular treatment is your key to energy balance and wellness.

Qi~ssage is safe for adults and children. Dawn has over 30 years of experience  and knows how to safely apply these healing Qi~ssage techniques.

Homeopathic Medicine

Based on the principle that “like cures like”, homeopathic medicines have been used since the 1700’s. As discovered by Dr. Hahneman, a distinguished German physician, very diluted amounts of natural substances are used to stimulate the body to heal itself. Homeopathy helps to balance conditions such as depression, ADHD, hormone imbalances, neurological conditions, headaches, colds and sore throats any many more health issues.

Modern applications of Homeopathy are commonly practiced as Classical Homeopathy or Combination Drainage Homeopathy. Both are very effective in stimulating the body’s Vital Force to produce a cure and improve your condition.

Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

Botanical Medicine

Botanical medicine involves the use of plants for their healing properties. For example echinacea and garlic are great for colds, ginger and peppermint for digestion and calendula for healing scrapes and cuts.

Herbal Medicine existed prior to Conventional (pharmaceutical) Medicine and still provides us with viable and safe alternatives to regain and maintain health and vitality in our modern world. Many plants and their active ingredients continue to inspire pharmaceutical applications in the conventional system. Nature provides exactly what we need to stay healthy. Dawn can help guide you in herbal selections appropriate for your situation. It is very important to remember that even though the plants are natural they are still medicine and can interfere with certain prescription drugs; caution is advised when combining prescription drugs and herbal medicines.

Breast Thermography Scans

Non-Invasive Breast Thermography

Our clinic is proud to offer Breast and full-body Thermography services provided by Thermography Clinic Niagara.

Breast Thermography uses no painful breast compression, no radiation and is completely non-invasive and benign to human tissue. Unlike conventional Mammography which traumatizes and radiates tissue with gamma radiation and imaging. Ask yourself, why does the medical system use screening techniques that actually cause trauma, inflammation and radiation damage to your DNA to screen for cancer, when these factors contribute to cancer???

Breast Thermography measures the infrared heat signature which is constantly radiating from the surface of human bodies. There is a process called thermoregulation which is the bodies way of breathing that cools or heats us, keeping the right amount of circulation and blood flow to the skin. This is automatic and controlled by the nervous system without thinking about it. It’s this heat signature that Thermography uses to get a functional assessment of body tissues - like the breast.

Thermography is an ideal tool for risk assessment not only for women of all ages. It not a stand alone tool in the screening and diagnosis of breast cancer, it’s an adjunctive assessment. It played a tremendous role as an early risk indicator or as a monitor of treatment.

Studies show:

  • Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

    An abnormal infrared image is the single-most important marker of high risk for developing breast disease

  • Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

    A persistent abnormal thermogram carries with it a 22 times higher risk of future breast disease

  • Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

    When thermography is used as a multimodal approach, 95% of early-stage cancers will be detected

Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

Brest Thermography is also a functional tool useful in assessing early changes associated with cancer growth. The procedure is based on the principle that chemical and early blood vessel activity is precancerous tissue and surrounding area is always higher than in normal tissue. This is due to the high metabolic activity needed for cancer cells to maintain growth and the recruitment of blood vessels (angiogenesis) to provide nutrition to cancer growing tumors.

This process results in an increased regional surface temperature of the skin associated with cancer. This gives the clinician an alert that something is wrong well before a cancerous lump or tutor can be detected on conventional tests.

Changes in tumor angiogenesis can be evaluated and other procedures can be offered to aid in the earliest possible diagnosis. So you can be proactive in changing your health and healing easier. Thermography is not a “wait and see” approach to your breast health. It is a early functional detection and proactive approach to breast health. Breast thermography has an average sensitivity and specificity of 90%.

When a thermography result is positive, a closer look at a patients diet, lifestyle is in order. Clinical blood work ultrasound and other testing can help with the evaluation.

I recommend thermographic Scanning early in a women’s reproductive life and monitoring on an individual basis as needed. The procedure is both comfortable and safe using no radiation or compression!

InLight Therapy

InLight Wellness LED light therapy systems are photo-modulated devices that provide low-level light therapy (LLLT), with multiple wavelengths emitted simultaneously. This polychromatic light therapy (PLT) is composed of infrared, visible red and blue LED lights providing gentle but powerful non-coherent light delivered to your cells. These devices use a carefully timed proprietary sequence of settings, known as pulses, to create an environment in which change may occur more rapidly, and consistently than conventional lasers. With the direction of your clinician, proper placement, frequency and application of the InLight pad system can assist your healing and regeneration at the speed of light. Standard settings are for pain & inflammation, neuropathy & re-balancing the nervous system for stress.

Watch a couple of short educational video on the effects of Light Therapy:

For more detailed understanding of the Benefits of Red, Blue and Infrared lights see PDF:


Increase circulation

Red, blue and infrared light enters through the skin and stimulates a photoreceptor in your blood called hemoglobin. When this is stimulated, the hemoglobin releases nitrogen oxide a natural substance that causes vasodilation. When the blood vessels are expanded, blood, oxygen, and nutrients can penetrate into areas that were previously compromised. red light also promotes angiogenesis, the building of new blood vessels. With this new improved circulation, the body can deliver nutrients and remove toxins for optimal healing.

Stimulate the production of collagen

Blue light and infrared light are responsible for stimulation of fibroblasts to produce collagen just under the surface of the skin. Collagen is the most common protein found in the body. Collagen is the essential protein used to repair damaged tissue and to replace old tissue. It is the substance that holds cells together and has a high degree of elasticity. By increasing collagen production less scar tissue is formed at the damaged site and aged skin rejuvenates.

Stimulate the release of adenosine triphosphate (ATP)

ATP is the major carrier of energy to all cells. Consider ATP your cellular energy currency. Increases in ATP allow cells to accept nutrients faster and get rid of waste products faster by increasing the energy level in the cell. Red and infrared light specifically increases the levels of ATP in each cell it touches.

Increase lymphatic system activity

Edema, which is the swelling of the tissues due to extracellular fluid accumulation. The first is a liquid part, which can be evacuated by the blood system, and the second is comprised of the proteins that have to be evacuated by the lymphatic system. All three lights (red, blue and infrared) increase lymphatic stimulation and flow. This means that both parts of edema (liquid and protein) can be evacuated at a much faster rate to relieve swelling.

Reduce the excitability of nervous tissue

The photons of light enter the body as negative ions. This calls upon the body to send positive ions, like calcium and potassium among others, to go to the area being treated. These natural ions in the body assist in firing the nerves, thereby relieving pain. Red light is responsible for increasing nerve function and nerve cell action potential which assists healing of neuropathy.

Increase phagocytosis

Red and infrared light stimulate phagocytosis which is the process of scavenging for an ingesting dead or degenerated cells by white blood cells for the purpose of clean up. This is an important part of the infection fighting process. Destruction of the infection and clean up must occur before the healing process can take place.

Stimulate tissue granulation and connective tissue projections

Red, blue, and infrared lights stimulate part of the healing process of wounds, ulcers or inflamed tissues by stimulating granulation.

Stimulate acetylcholine release

Red light helps increase the relaxation response (parasympathetic) via the release of Acetylcholine. Acetylcholine causes cardiac inhibition, vasodilation, cognitive, gastrointestinal peristalsis and other parasympathetic effects.


The InLight Medical products have been cleared by the FDA as being safe and effective, used to reduce pain and increase circulation. Light emitted from InLight Medical devices are within visible to infrared spectrum and consist of non-ionizing radiation, which is safe for use. InLight Therapy does not substitute any ongoing therapy, and does not substitute for medical care by your physician.

Pain Management

Pain is believed to originate from an ionic differentiation of potassium (K+) and sodium (Na+) ions across a cellular membrane. Theralase 905 nm super-pulsed laser technology increases cellular membrane permeability and causes a reabsorption of sodium and expulsion of potassium molecules, removing the gradient and thus the pain signal at source. The result is a reduction in pain.


No clinically tested modality is proven to be more effective for arthritis. While arthritis is a chronic condition without a cure, Theralase therapeutic laser treatments can provide substantial relief from symptoms by reducing inflammation of the joints, eliminating pain, increasing range of motion of the joints and improving immune cell production and efficiency.

Wound Healing

Laser treatments accelerate each of the three phases associated with the natural healing of wounds: inflammation, proliferation and remodeling. The result is a reduction in pain, inflammation reduction, increased stimulation of connective tissue (granulation tissue) and increased capillary production (angiogenesis) leading to improved blood flow during proliferation.


Despite the pain associated with this stage, the inflammatory phase is necessary for tissue repair. First, in the area of the wound, there appear platelets and white blood cells to coagulate the blood and stop blood loss. Next, an increased number of macrophages clean the area and remove dead tissue by engulfing and destroying foreign matter and damaged cells.


Theralase advanced anti-aging system is designed for facial rejuvenation and the treatment of various dermatological conditions. This non-invasive system erases years of lines and wrinkles without surgery or painful recuperation time. By combining laser/acupuncture facial points and both near infrared and visible red light, treatments optimize skin health and appearance through the production of collagen and elastin, both essential to healthier more youthful skin.

How Does It Work?

Light therapy has been shown to improve vascularity (circulation) by increasing the formation of new capillaries. New capillaries speed up the healing process by supplying additional oxygen and nutrients needed for healing and stimulate the production of collagen. One of the secondary mechanisms of light therapy is increased collagen synthesis. Collagen is the most common protein found in the body and is the essential protein used to repair and replace damaged tissue. It is the substance that holds cells together, along with elastin, thus forming a high degree of elasticity. Increasing both collagen and elastin production will decrease scar tissue at the injured site.
