Maria Bond, a board-certified naturopathic doctor and natural health professional, now owns and manages Thermography of Indianapolis out of her practice, Organic Health Alliance (OHA), at 4546 West 71st Street.
Bond aligns herself with traditional naturopathy based on a common-sense balance of tradition, science and respect for the healing power of nature. Her work at OHA blends modern, scientific testing and therapeutic procedures with ancient and traditional healing methods. Bond holds a Ph.D. in transpersonal counseling and a degree in Diagnostic Medical Microbiology from the State University of New York. She is also certified in massage therapy by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Body Work, a certified nutritional counselor, a registered yoga teacher and holds additional certifications in iridology, kinesiotaping, microcurrent therapy, massage cupping and light touch therapy, among others.
“A thermogram has some advantages that a mammogram does not,” says Bond. “For example, thermograms have the ability to monitor breast health without the use of compression or radiation. It’s especially an option that should be mentioned to those that advocate no breast screening at all.”
Thermography, Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging, is an FDA-approved, brief, non-invasive, radiation- and pain-free clinical imaging procedure for detecting and monitoring a number of diseases and physical injuries by showing the thermal abnormalities present in the body. Thermography is covered by some health insurance plans and is used as an aid for diagnosis and prognosis plus monitoring therapy progress for conditions and injuries, including back injuries, arthritis, headache, nerve damage, artery inflammation, dental issues, vascular disease, digestive disorders, stroke screening, whiplash, unexplained pain, fibromyalgia, breast disease, carpel tunnel, disc disease, inflammatory pain, skin cancer and referred pain syndrome.
