Want to know more about thermography and how it can be a great additional screening tool for you?  Please read this article I am sharing from her website (http://www.prohealthimaging.com/).  Please check it out her website to learn more.  You can book an appointment to see Lynn at our clinic and if you have any questions for me, do not hesitate to ask. 🙂 We are offering thermography services by Lynn Scott, RN at the OMWC on April 13th 9am-5pm.

About Thermography 

“Which one is better—a mammogram or a thermogram?” That’s what everyone wants   to know. It’s a perfectly logical question, one I am asked everywhere I go. But   it’s the wrong question. It’s more complex than that. Yes, both tests can produce images of the breasts, and both offer the possibility of early breast   cancer detection, but other than that, they have nothing in common. They’re different tests, produced in different ways, showing completely different things.

Mammography involves radiation and breast compression. Thermography requires neither. Mammography shows anatomy (structure). Thermography measures subtle   temperature changes in the skin associated with underlying pathology. It is a   physiological test only. It cannot “see” a cancer. Mammography can detect   cancers very early, as small as a few millimeters. Thermography can detect   physiologic changes associated with a cancer while it is still at a cellular   level—before it becomes visible on a mammogram.

Thermography has other unique abilities as well. It can indicate estrogen   dominance, an imbalance in estrogen levels associated with higher breast cancer   risk. It can detect lymphatic congestion, also a precursor to disease. The   effects of diet can also be clearly seen. Women on a typical Western diet who   switch to a healthier, plant-based diet, show remarkable improvement in their   thermal patterns.

In short, thermography is a way to monitor breast health, not just a way to   detect breast disease. Mammography can show you if you have a cancer or not, but   other than that it has little purpose. Thermography offers a woman the chance to   become aware of worrisome physiological changes before there is a diagnosable   cancer—which is when risk-reduction strategies such as diet, exercise, and   stress reduction are most effective.

The unique ability to detect changes suspicious of breast cancer before it   can be seen on a mammogram is both the promise and the dilemma of thermography.   The promise, because every woman wants a better early warning system; the   dilemma, because it flies in the face of conventional medical thought.

The thermography/mammography debate is a microcosm of the debate between   alternative and conventional medicine, which explains much of the confusion and   controversy surrounding the matter. Thermography is firmly rooted in the   alternative world, where the concept of disease prevention through lifestyle   change is well-accepted. Conventional medicine is based on surgical procedures   and pharmaceuticals. It can’t deal with something that is too early to be   diagnosed. Only you can do that.

As medicine becomes more integrative, many of these issues will disappear.   Thermography will become more accepted as paradigms change and perspectives   broaden. Thermography doesn’t replace mammography. It is not FDA approved as a   stand-alone test. It adds a much needed piece to the puzzle, providing risk   information and possible early warning that mammography cannot. It can help you   become aware of your breast health. It’s not just another way to find disease
