Today with so many testing options to image our bodies for breast and body health, we would like to share with you all the benefits of thermography.
The saying goes, “Knowledge is Power”, right?
We hope to share some of that knowledge and give you the power to make smart choices, so, let’s get started!
To start with thermography is FDA approved.
Also, the procedure involves:
Also, thermal imaging is completely safe for pregnant women, women with breast implants, women with large, dense or sensitive breasts.
The use of thermography is based on the principal that metabolic activity and vascular circulation in both pre-cancerous tissue and the area surrounding a developing breast cancer is almost always higher than normal breast tissue.
In an ever-increasing need for nutrients, cancerous tumors increase circulation to their cells by holding open existing blood vessels, opening dormant vessels, and creating new ones.
This process frequently results in an increase in regional surface temperature of the breast.
Thermography uses ultra sensitive medical infrared cameras and sophisticated computers to detect, analyze, and produce high-resolution images of these temperature variations.
Because of the extreme sensitivity, these temperature variations may be among the earliest signs of breast cancer and pre-cancerous state of the breast or other parts of the body.
If you are a woman, you need to take your breast health seriously!
Thermography is an extremely valuable and important adjunctive test with regard to early detection of breast disease and other abnormalities in the body. Thermograms may tell you how healthy your breasts are. This allows you to implement lifestyle changes that can improve the health of your breasts proactively instead of waiting for a cancer diagnosis later.
An annual thermogram allows you to map changes in your body’s heat patterns over time. They can alert you to any deviations from your norm. Mapping your health annually helps you detect changes, often before disease develops. Thermography creates a digital map of your body that illustrates heat patterns – patterns that may detect some condition or abnormality.
INFLAMMATION: IS IT GOOD OR BAD? DO WE WANT TO ELIMINATE IT?
Yet breast imaging is only one benefit of thermograms. Another area that may be of benefit is pain diagnosis and inflammation (precursor to disease and pain in the body).
Chronic inflammation is a bad guy and a real destroyer of health. Often we are unaware that we have inflammation until it has damaged our tissues.
Fortunately, we have some very effective options based on finding inflammation . And here’s the good news: early detection of inflammation may help you prevent many negative health conditions from developing.
While you can reduce inflammation with dietary changes, nutritional supplements, antioxidants, detoxification, stress reduction, and more…… finding out if you have inflammation before it becomes a major problem is the key. Thermography may be able to detect inflammation at it’s earliest stages.
Thermography is best known as an adjunct screening for breast/body health. Thermography is not a stand alone diagnostic device, it is used along with other screenings and tests, but it could be your first safe line of defense and early detection of something abnormal developing. All diagnostic screenings including: Mammogram’s, X-rays, CT scans, MRI’s, Pet scans,Ultra sounds, Thermography, and biopsy’s can have a false negative or false positive. The only way to diagnose and confirm cancer is through a biopsy.
We hope this information has been helpful.
