(BREAST) THERMOGRAPHY FOR LIFE!
I am so excited that enquiries for Breast Thermography are increasing. The TRUTH ABOUT CANCER docu-series (https://thetruthaboutcancer.com) has helped to raise awareness around concerns of using mammography as a screening tool for the prevention of breast cancer. THERMOGRAPHY is a better breast health screening tool which can truly be considered as preventative AND potentially life saving!
Mammograms (x-ray), MRIs or ultrasound are used to identify masses that have grown to a detectable size. Infra-red thermography on the other hand, detects subtle blood vessel changes long before a mass is even detectable using these conventional imaging methods. Thermography can identify these blood vessel changes that are known to be present prior to, or in the very early stages of the formation of a breast cancer providing a considerably longer lead time on diagnosis.
The procedure is based on the principle that chemical and blood vessel activity in both pre-cancerous tissue and the area surrounding a developing breast cancer is almost always higher than in the normal breast. Since pre-cancerous and cancerous masses are highly metabolic tissues, they need an abundant supply of nutrients to maintain their growth. In order to do this they increase circulation to their cells by sending out chemicals to keep existing blood vessels open, recruit dormant vessels, and create new ones (neo-angiogenesis). This process results in an increase in regional surface temperatures of the breast which in turn is detectable by thermography.
Breast Thermography is also a valuable screening tool for monitoring hormonal imbalances as there is a significant correlation between an estrogen dominant state and breast cancer risk. Understanding this link between hormone balance and breast health is important for every woman to know.
