Woman’s Health

Thermography provides the earliest possible detection and is a true holistic approach to women’s health, particularly for the breasts. It is an adjunct diagnostic screening technique that has evolved over the last 40 years.

Breast Cancer, a woman’s health issue!

woman-upperbody-ad-thermographyhawaii-comHave you ever wondered about the health of your breasts? Have you ever thought how great it would be to actually find out the state of your breasts before a lump or tumor is found on a mammogram?

Most tumors take years to develop to a size that can be seen on a mammogram. But what is happening to the breast tissue during that time? Wouldn’t it be comforting to really know?

And what about a lesser known but just as threatening condition called IBC ~ inflammatory breast cancer, which has no lumps to see on a structural picture like a mammogram?

A sophisticated thermography device, a contact probe and computer software, converts various temperature readings of the skin into electronic data signals that are displayed on a computer monitor. Readings are taken before and after exposure to a cool room (70 degrees Fahrenheit) and, using complex algorithms, the computer compares these results with a database of over 300,000 healthy and abnormal thermography results. With this information, doctors are able to discover patterns of thermography responses that signal organ and tissue dysfunction. It is thought that thermoregulatory changes are the first signs of an organ’s functional disturbance.

Regulation Thermography is an especially powerful tool in determining breast health. Here is why this procedure is an essential component of an overall breast health plan:

  • Thermography supports early detection of organ disturbance that may indicate the potential of breast cancer development;
  • Thermography does not expose the patient to radiation or any harmful substance, it is 100% safe and non-invasive;
  • Empowers you and your health care provider to build a customized health program based on your own unique health profile;
  • The procedure can be repeated many times supporting early detection, as well as tracing the success of treatment options. This often becomes an integral part of a yearly health evaluation;
  • Thermography reveals imbalances, which develop over many years. Once patterns are identified, treatment can be better guided toward success;
  • It answers the questions: “What is the state of my breast health” and “What is the state of my health?” Most testing will only reveal the presence or absence of a disease.

“By the time breast cancer is detected by a mammogram, a woman will have already had the disease for an average of 6 to 8 years,”
(American Cancer Society 2001).

Please note that Thermography is not a replacement for Mammography. These two procedures work together with physical examination to create an overall strategy for ensuring breast health. The highest detection rates of breast cancer were seen when Thermography was combined with physical examination and Mammography.
