Since its conception in 2000, HealthQuest has been consulting with numerous individuals and professionals with regards to various health challenges that face us. Through the years, many of these challenges have become more urgent and critical in nature. Of particular interest is the continued rise in the incidence of breast cancer, despite the various and sincere efforts of different organizations. There is clearly something being missed by the current system dealing with the disease. While some can wait and wish for the day when there will really be a cure for cancer in general, there are others who just cannot wait or are unwilling to wait. In the light of this challenge, HealthQuest brought its considerable clout in information, research and contacts to find a solution to address this particular challenge.
At HealthQuest, every project starts with research. Be it a search for the highest quality food supplement to match the stringent needs of a client or the evaluation of current naturopathic and medical practices, we make it a point to consider the new and the not so new in looking for solutions to health challenges.
After much effort and time, our research uncovered one particular technology whose potential in addressing increase of breast cancer incidence is very valid but has not been properly harnessed to its fullest by the health authorities and establishments. A technology that has been around since the late 70's and approved for medical use by the US FDA in the early 80's.
In August 2008, HealthQuest Research® proudly introduced MDITI™ – Medical Digital Infrared Thermographic Imaging™ - the LATEST and most advanced computerized technology in digital infrared thermographic imaging for medical use. The first of its kind in the Philippines.
We offer thermographic imaging and interpretation service for the early detection of breast disease. If properly utilized and interpreted, MDITI™ can be used as the main tool in advanced breast cancer screening and monitoring. The benefit of MDITI™ testing is that it offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast disease than has been possible through breast self examination, doctor examination or mammography alone. Some studies suggest that if MDITI™ is used together with mammography, accuracy of results increases to 94%. But as a stand alone screening tool, its accuracy is better than 99%.
We also offer free consultations of the results to guide and explain to clients the meaning of their MDITI™ results and what else they can do. Since we are a "naturopathically" and nutritionally focused company, we naturally recommend and educate clients on natural alternatives to breast health management.
MDITI™ is non-invasive, truly painless, no contact with the body and best of all, radiation-free! MDITI™ has been recognized as a viable diagnostic tool since 1987 by the AMA Council on Scientific Affairs, the ACA Council on Diagnostic Imaging, the Congress of Neuro-Surgeons in 1988 and in 1990 by the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
One day, there may be a single method for the early detection of breast cancer. Until then, using a combination of methods will increase your chances of detecting cancer in an early stage. Mammography, ultrasound, regular and monthly breast examination, and MDITI™.
Another unique feature of HealthQuest's MDITI™ is its interpretation services of the thermographic images. We are trained, certified and accredited by EMI and is a member of ACCT. EMI is the internationally recognized authority in thermographic interpretation services. ACCT is the international accrediting organization for practicing thermographers.
Aside from MDITI™, HealthQuest Research 2000 Inc. is recognized as the unofficial clearinghouse and consultant for naturopathic and alternative health information. We have worked side by side with various international companies committed to providing accurate, objective and unbiased natural health information based on research and scientific studies. As such, we are able to provide research support and contacts on the highest quality and class of natural food supplements for the most discerning professionals, companies and individuals.
As part of our consultation services, we specialize in designing unique and special nutritional programs for each individual in relation to a client's lifestyle, dietary, genetic predispositions and special personal conditions. Since we believe that no two person's dietary and nutritional needs are alike, we take the time and effort to know more about a client's background, so every consultation takes 2-3 hours.
The company also prides itself in being on top of the development of various technological and scientific advancements particularly in the natural alternative industry. We look forward to being able to bring in and introduce to the Philippines more innovative technology and products from around the world that would safely contribute to the health of the Filipino people.
