Breast cancer is a very real health threat. Here are the statistics.
Breast cancer screening is important, but using traditional mammograms comes with problems, not the least of which is the incidence of false positive readings. This source said the false positive rate is as high as 12.3%! https://www.breastcancer.org/research-news/false-positives-may-lead-to-screening-delays Thermograms eliminate the stress and anxiety that comes with a false positive reading.
Supplemental Wellness has a state-of-the-art Infrared Mammography (also known as Thermography) breast cancer detection system. Partnered with Therma-Scan Reference Laboratory, you will have the most experienced and accomplished providers of medical thermology in the world. Visit their website at www.thermascan.com
Thermography works with heat signatures. Look at the photos to your right. The top photo is a normal thermogram. There are bright red spots just above the collar bone. Those are used as reference temperatures. You can see that the colors in the breast tissue are cool green or blue. Also, the breasts are similar on each side.
The photo below is that of an invasive cancer. The blood vessels that feed cancer cannot constrict, so they show up bright red. They show up particularly well when a "cold challenge" is used to highlight them, as is explained below. A thermogram done right, can pick up potential cancers 5 to 8 years BEFORE they become the situation you see on the bottom photo.
These are the screening options that are currently available. As you can see, we can pick up potential cancers while they are still very tiny, about the size of a grain of rice. For the Screening MRI and X-ray Mammogram, they pick up calcium deposits in the tissues that happen after the cancer has begun to grow. At this point, it is difficult, if not impossible, to support the body to the point of healing itself. And that doesn't even address the number of times cancers are missed altogether. A change in heat signature can not be missed.
At Supplemental Wellness, a special room dedicated to performing thermograms was custom built. Look carefully and you can see the FLIR infrared camera and the little purple mat on the floor. As the patient, you stand on the purple mat, and the camera is about five feet away in front of you. NO compression, NO touching, NO RADIATION! The person taking the images stand behind the computer. You simply put your arms up and turn from side to side as the images are taken.
Do you see the big bowl on the stand in the back? The bowl contains very cold water. After a 10 minute cooling off period, three images are taken of your normal state. You then put your hands in the bowl for 1 minute. The cold water causes a total body constriction of the blood vessels. Remember we said that vessels feeding cancer cannot constrict? After 1 minute, you dry your hands quickly and three "post cold" images are taken to pick up any vessels that can't constrict.
The images are immediately sent to ThermaScan for processing. This can take anywhere from 3 days to 4 weeks, depending on the time of year. They get really busy in the fall. Breast Cancer Awareness is in October, so there is a flood of therms done. All of the images are personally reviewed by Dr Phillip Hoekstra, PhD. He has more experience reading thermography images than anyone in the world.
Once the report back from ThermaScan, you will receive a detailed letter with lots of information about what the readings mean, and any recommendations. There is SO much you can do from the point of diet and supplements to improve your breast health!
Traditional practitioners and mammogram clinics, and even some thermography centers, simply cannot give you solid guidance. If you did great, you will be encouraged to come back annually. If the scan is not what you hoped for, very specific recommendations and guidance will be given on how to improve your status. There is no additional charge for that consultation.
A number of years ago, Dr Hoekstra called the clinic and asked, "What are you doing?" Seemed like a strange question, but he was seeing improvements in readings over the years. Images being done at other clinics either stayed the same or the readings got worse. It was rare for my patients to get worse, and most got better! Why? Intervention! If you have a less than optimal reading, why wait and see if it gets worse? Intervene and make the next one better! I'm here to show you how to do that.
