side-therm2Who should have this screening?

Thermography is recommended for women of all ages but especially for younger women between 30- 50 years old due to the propensity for denser breasts. Dense breasts are not easily evaluated in mammography and therefore run the risk of inaccurate reporting. Women with breast implants, history of breast cancer and family history of breast cancer can benefit from thermography for earlier detection of vascular abnormalities that could signify an evolving pathology. 

It could take up to 10 years for a tumor to grow thus the earliest possible indication of abnormality is needed to allow for the earliest possible treatment and intervention. Thermography’s role in monitoring breast health is to help in early detection and monitoring of abnormal physiology. Breast cancers tend to grow significantly faster in younger women under 50.

The faster a malignant tumor grows, the more Infrared radiation it generates. For younger women in particular, results from thermography screening can lead to earlier detection and, ultimately, longer life.

Conventional medicine has not found the cure for breast cancer nor does it offer early prevention and safe treatment modalties. Thermography can give us the information to start working on potential problem sites using nutrition, hormone balancing, detoxification, vitamin therapy and stress reduction techniques. 

Only about 20 percent of biopsied breast lumps are cancerous. And, if cancer is found early, there are choices for treatment. With prompt treatment, the outlook is good. In fact, most women treated for early breast cancer will be free from breast cancer for the rest of their lives.
