Thermography is a technology that safely scans the body for inflammation. PSI Medical’s highly specialized Infrared Camera is able to find inflammation via differences in thermal (heat) patterns in the body. Humans, and everything that is alive, give off Infrared Heat, so the Thermography camera looks for irregularities in ‘normal’ thermal patterns of the body. Inflammation is the beginning to ANY degenerative disease, so where we find inflammation we find the initial stages of disease and disorder. Detecting disease in its earliest stages, as we all know, leads to prevention.
At PSI Medical, we offer Breast Health Screenings to check the breasts for inflammation. Toxicity in women shows up in the breasts, so by scanning the breasts looking for inflammation we are able to work with the patient to lessen toxicity, inflammation, and thus disease.
Your Thermogram is done by a female Thermographer behind a privacy curtain. There is no touch, pressure or radiation with this scan. After your images are taken, they are read and interpreted by a Medical Doctor. Finally, you have a consultation with the Thermographer and Dr. Robert Grafton to go over your Thermography Report and answer any questions you may have. During this consultation, you will discuss your health goals with Dr. Grafton and we customize a health plan that is designed specifically for you.
Cardiac Health Screenings
The number one killer of men and women in America is Cardiovascular Disease. PSI Medical offers Cardiac Health Screenings to check for the beginning signs of heart attack and stroke. Thermography enables us to see decreased flow of infrared heat along a narrowed artery, usually due to atherosclerosis.
As we age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging. Sun exposure and years of muscle movement such as smiling, chewing or squinting gradually contribute to tissue breakdown of the skin. Fortunately, there are innovative cosmetic procedures to help ease this aging process and rejuvenate skin to that of one’s youth. Facial fillers, which are also known as “dermal fillers” and “injectables,” are temporary to long-lasting solutions administered through a few tiny injections on specific areas of the face. Various types of facial fillers are available in the United States; each is designed with one or several purposes, such as wrinkle reduction and lip augmentation.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
BOTOX® Treatments can take as little as 10 minutes to administer. Once treatment has occurred you will should notice a distinct improvement in moderate to severe frown lines in the brows. The effects can last up to as long as 4 months meaning you can continue to enjoy your active lifestyle without taking time out of your daily schedule.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time. In 2005, almost 3.3 million procedures were performed with FDA-approved BOTOX® Cosmetic. When it comes to selecting a physician-administered aesthetic treatment, chances are you’ll want proof, not just claims. The proof for BOTOX® Cosmetic is in the number. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women surveyed rated the improvement in the appearance of frown lines between their brows as moderate to better 1 month after treatment. Results can last for up to 4 months, and may vary.
BOTOX® Cosmetic has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 for the temporary treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people ages 18 to 65, and almost 3.3 million procedures were performed in 2005 alone. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery ranked BOTOX® Cosmetic as the most popular physician-administered aesthetic procedure in the United States for the fourth year in a row (surgical and nonsurgical combined).
PSI Medical has developed several concentrated formulas specific to the treatment of various types of acne. Everyone’s skin poses unique challenges. As a result we have created a step-by-step program and custom products specific to your acne challenges and skin. Dr. Grafton’s unique three-step program can help patients recover from acne and the effects of acne.
Your first step in treating any type of acne is to repair the damage done. This phase consists of two Formulas: Formula A PM ( Evening ) and Formula B AM ( Morning ). Custom formula Formula A PM serves two important purposes. It contains hydrocortisone which helps control the swelling that can be caused by killing acne bacteria and Retinoic Acid which helps to brings new cells to the surface. Formula B AM works to replenish and sustain your skin and has been customized towards exposure experienced during daylight. This unique combination of elements contains strong cleansers and anti-bacterials to reinforce your skin cells and maintain a healthy glow as you go about your day.
During this phase you will be prescribed Formula B AM and Formula B PM. PM works just like Formula A PM, by repairing damage and replenishing skin with new cells. A key difference between the PM formula in phase one and this formula is the absence of hydrocortisone. In most cases it is unnecessary to treat swelling after the initial phase of therapy.
Phase three of treatment contains all the necessary components to avoid new outbreaks of acne while rebuilding new replenished skin. Expect acne to surface because it has nowhere to go, in this case add additional hydrocortisone 1% to face twice daily for first week and it will remove the inflammation as soon as 2 days. Expect dryness as the medicine works hard to fulfill new cells. This can be remedied with our hypoallergenic moisturizer gel. Apply daily and avoid dryness immediately.
Intravenous (IV) Nutritional Therapy is a method of delivering vitamins, minerals, and other vital nutrients to the body directly into the bloodstream. A small intravenous catheter is temporarily placed into a vein so the nutrients can be administered over a period of time that is dependent upon the nutrients that are used. Most intravenous infusions take approximately 30 to 45 minutes but some nutrients can be administered in as little as 5 to 15 minutes.
How does IV therapy work?
IV Nutritional Therapy floods the cells with nutrients and can increase and optimize cellular health. This is particularly relevant since many vitamin and mineral supplements are not well absorbed by the body. For some people barriers exist in the gastrointestinal tract that prevents adequate absorption. With IV Nutritional Therapy we can deliver large doses of nutrients safely into a vein that would otherwise not be tolerated if administered orally. This is what we mean by flooding the cells with nutrients. All of the nutrients we use are natural and safe to be administered intravenously. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and certain other nutrients can have an incredibly potent effect when introduced directly into a vein but without the side effects of many prescription medications. Patients may only require a few treatments, or periodic treatments for some conditions including chronic diseases like Fibromyalgia in order to maintain the benefits.
IV nutrition treatments at PSI include:
- Myers Cocktail
- High Dose Vitamin C
- Anti-Viral (Chronic and Acute)
- Placquex Therapy
