Thermography: Early Breast Cancer Detection

So I bet you’re wondering what all of this breast thermography stuff that you’ve been seeing around the office is about.  Breast thermography is an alternative form of early breast cancer detection.

Why do I recommend its use over a mammogram?  It detects changes within the breast without the use of harmful radiation exposure. It is non-invasive, there is no pain involved, and there are no associated health risks. It uses infrared imaging which may detect abnormalities that your normal shower palpation routines or mammograms may not detect. It does so by detecting new blood vessel formation. Blood vessels pop up to sustain the environment necessary for a tumor.

The best part about thermography is that it is okay for use by anyone! Whether you are pregnant, nursing, have large breasts, have had breast cancer in the past, male or female. “

A positive infrared image represents the highest known risk factor for the existence of or future development of breast cancer – 10 times more significant than any family history of the disease.” It also has 90% sensitivity for all age groups. This is, in my opinion, the best test to give increased suspicion for breast cancer. Cancer confirmation can only be done via biopsy of the region after the results of thermography.

The Power Is On ~ Thank You Dr. Rob!

Before receiving chiropractic care at Simply Healthy Wellness Centers I was plagued constantly with headaches, really high blood pressure and despite medication, was constantly tired, had numbness into my right fingers and hand, and pain in my left hip and abdomen. These problems affected my activities of daily living- my circuits were really messed up!

I used to think that chiropractors were doctors who specialized in giving injections to individuals who were experiencing chronic joint pain. After attending the new patient orientation at Simply Healthy Wellness Centers, I was totally blown away with the level of knowledge and expertise of the doctors and staff. The level of trust I felt was profound from the first time I spoke with the doctors, and I was ready to entrust my care to them.

My health has improved tremendously! I have not had any headaches, soreness, or stress-related tension in my shoulders, no stomach or hip pain, and the numbness in my fingers has decreased by about 90%. I am now more energized at work, my blood pressure is trending down, and I feel like a new person. The interference in the circuit breaker is removed and “THE POWER IS ON!”

Chiropractic care is the experience of God’s laws of love, health and healing. It is holistic medicine at its best. It is an opportunity to live a long life of health and vitality, obtaining wisdom and the knowledge of health and applying it.

Thank you to the staff of Simply Healthy Wellness Centers for creating the “new me!”
