A testimonial from a former patient:
"My name is Catherine Monteblanco and I am a mother of 3 wonderful children. My oldest, Tristan, has one of the worse case of eczema; having covered in sores from his scalp to his ankles, but with the help of the elimination diet, acupuncture, juicing and ketogenic diet his skin is clear.
When he was younger, he had small patches on his arms or behind his knees, but would clear up after applying steroid cream. His flare ups were minor and manageable with steroid creams.
In late 2013, his eczema was noticeable so we decided to change our food choices to organic products. In 2016, his condition continue to get worst that his body was covered in rashes, itches non-stop, barely sleeps at night (4 hours at most based on a sleep tracking device), and wore long sleeves and jeans to cover up even in the summer. We avoided going to the pool or beach to prevent the sores from getting infected.
We saw his primary care doctor, who prescribed more steroid creams at incrementing doses, until it stopped working. We also saw an allergist, who performed blood test and skin test.
After some research, we came across the idea of healing eczema from the gut. We purchased a book called “The Eczema Cure” by Emily Bartlett and started the elimination diet. We started eliminating major known food allergies. During this time, we saw an acupuncturist Dr. Hyun Kim, who performed acupuncture and prescribed herbal suppliments. The acupuncture treatments were very helpful and boost his immune system. His eczema was better, but not healed. After one year of treatments, we decided to seek for alternative ways.
He was slowly recovering, but felt that something else was missing. That’s when we met Dr. Gigi Siton. In November 2016, I attended the “Nutrition Boot Camp” and it was an eye opening experience. I quickly realized that even though we switched to organic food products and followed the elimination diet, our meal portion was completely off - with more meat and grains on the plate rather than vegetables.
After attending the class, we started juicing and switched to the ketogenic diet. Following this diet, we saw change; he was scratching less, sleeping better and his skin started to clear up on some areas. In 3 months his skin is almost clear and within 6 months, there were no trace of any rashes on him."
Thermography is a non-invasive, safe, diagnostic tool that takes pictures and analyzes changes in the skin's surface temperature without the use of radiation. While X-rays, ultrasound, mammography show us the structure of the body, they will miss such things such as active inflammation and increased blood supply as found in many illnesses. Thermography is unique technology that takes a picture and creates a map of the infrared patters of the body. It is different from other screening tools because it helps you to see how your body functions.
