What is Breast Thermography?
Breast Thermography can screen for early indications of disease in the breast. You can then halt & reverse symptoms holistically before they become life threatening.
Thermography is 100% safe & non-invasive screening for breast health without harmful radiation or deep compression of the breasts

Breast thermography can screen for indications of breast disease up to ten years before a mammogram can

Thermography is also effective for dense breasts & breasts with implants

Because by now most of us know, or have known, someone with breast cancer this is the month to support our sisters, mothers, friends, and daughters, who are busy healing breast cancer while also becoming more informed about how we can all make good, solid choices regarding our breast health.

Breast Cancer is also Breast Health Awareness Month



 One of my favorite concepts and words is Ubuntu. It translates as the epitome of human kindness and interconnectivity: "I am because you are."


And, so, because I am indeed here because you are here, this month, with overflowing gratitude, I want to bestow the great blessings I've received over the past 2 years by paying my good fortune forward.



I have also been inspired this week to live by the words of the theologian Frederick Buechner, who encourages that, "you should go to the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet."


To that end I invite you to reach out into our communities to support, guide, standup for, give something back to, someone who has cancer or needs support in their aspirations to stay healthy. There is so much we can offer each other. 


For Cancer resources and support:


Please check out Camp Keepsake at http://www.cancerhopefoundation.org/    The weekend retreat for people with cancer and their families will be in the foothills of Ojai on Oct 4-6th


Mary Jo Siegel, an amazing woman and client was a patient of Dr. Stanislaw's and continues to volunteer her time through the website she co-created: Www.burzynskipatientgroup.org  website was developed by The patients of Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, MD.  Its purpose is to collect and disseminate testimonials from some of the past and present patients of Dr. Burzynski whose cancers were successfully treated using his advanced cancer treatment, as well as to educate potential patients and their loved ones.


The French Hospital, www.frenchmedicalcenter.org and Hearst Cancer Resource Center wellness and support services provide a bridge between standard medical care and a full range of healing therapies. There integrative approach offers a foundation for care that includes an array of programs designed to strengthen the body, educate the mind and alleviate the stress which often comes with a cancer diagnosis.

Many of the classes and services are they offer are free to cancer patients, family members and friends. These programs are designed to help those touched by cancer, and their loved ones, live better lives during treatment and beyond. Pretty amazing, right? Yes!


Beautiful Skin Without The Cost


As most of you know I LOVE organic extra virgin coconut oil and have been recommending it to my clients for years to cleanse, moisturize and eat.  The list of uses grows daily as we all have added to it over time. Recently I decided to kick my own beauty regimen up a notch by completely letting go of store bought formulas, and by researching pure ingredients found many items that we can use right out of the fridge. Here's what I have been mixing up in the kitchen:


This formula not only cleanses, it fights wrinkles and helps your skin glow! 

For a face wash I mix the following ingredients: ( this will last several days)

1 heaping tsp Organic (full fat) yogurt or Greek Yogurt

A few drops of lemon juice

About 6 -7 drops of grapefruit seed extract

1-3 drops of pure organic lavender oil

1 tsp olive oil

1 tsp xylitol (for it's exfoliating and anti-bacterial benefits - plus if the mixture touches your lips it will taste good as well :)

This all mixes into a creamy facial cleanser.  I then store the remainder in a glass jar in the fridge, which should last a few days. 

After I cleanse I soak a cotton ball in cold water and dap it with Apple Cider Vinegar and use this as a toner, because I find that straight ACV is too strong on my skin. Lastly, I apply either pure coconut oil, jojoba oil or emu oil as a moisturizer.

To nurture my internal landscape I drink as much water as possible and in three of those glasses I add 1 tsp of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. This not only helps my skin glow but has also been helping my energy. 


If you want to order already made pure beauty products, try Daron Hope's organic, botanical skincare line:  Earthtonics. http://www.etsy.com/shop/EarthtonicsSkincare

Now for something delicious to eat:



Sugar free chocolate fudge desert recipe.

(it is full of anti-oxidants & Omega 3's along with other additional benefits of organic extra virgin coconut oil)


Mix in a large bowl:

1/2 cup of Coconut Flour

1/2 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut

1/2 cup of organic raw cacoa/chocolate powder

5 tablespoons of organic extra virgin coconut oil

4 organic free range veggie fed eggs

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup of pure unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk

Sweeten to taste with Stevia and/or Xylitol.  I use about 1/4 cup of stevia & 1/4 cup of xylitol.  You may wish to try a little less and then test taste the batter before adding more.

 Mix well and pour batter into coconut oil greased glass cooking dish and bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees.

Bake for 12 minutes (check at ten minutes if you like a fudgy middle). I like to pour a little almond or coconut water over the hot fudge desert straight out of the oven.  Yum :)


*DISCOUNT DAYS - 2 days instead of just 1 this month!

Oct 17th in our Ojai office or Oct. 18th in our Santa Barbara office the cost of a breast screening is discounted to $185.00, full body scan (which includes the breast) is discounted to $375.00



Thank You To All Our Clients

In the spirit of Ubuntu, we will give all of our clients who book in the month of October $20.00 off the cost of their screening.  We will give any new clients $65.00 off the cost of their first breast or full body screening, so tell your friends because this is an amazing savings.

Adieu to Jackie Kane, former partner and CEO of Thermography Centers

I am letting out a great sigh of relief combined with such gratefulness as well as the realization that we did it, we really did it!  We partnered successfully, and now we have transitioned this amazing business from both of our hearts, hands and heads to only mine.  What an extremely gratifying and heart opening couple of years it has been to hold, and be held within, the healing potential that exists in all of us as we ask over and over, what makes what makes us sick, and what makes us well? Emotionally, spiritually, physically, socially, what makes us well?  It has been an honor to nurture and support, primarily women, in choosing to live an abundantly healthy life by taking the focus off of pathology and putting it on to prevention, wellness and healing.  What a year! 

So to Jackie, and to all of you...

Thank you, thank you, thank you.  You made it happen, and for that I am so very grateful. I couldn't be happier, doing the work I absolutely love.  What a job I have supporting women through holistic and preventative medicine, as well as being part of the change to reclaim our health from the disillusioned aspects of the current medical system.

Here's to bringing choices to women!  Here's to bringing the choice of thermography to a larger population of women (and men, of course) for 100% safe, radiation free breast screening and full body scans!  Hat's off to all the women and men who support thermography...and... of course, to Jackie for all her great work!

May you be well, Jackie, as you embrace what's next for you in your life. Anyone who would like to visit her, please look her up next time you happen to be on Martha's Vineyard.  She would be happy to see you.

I hope you enjoy the tips, recipes, tributes, and special offers.


In appreciation of wellness, beauty, collaboration. And you.




Full Body Thermography Scans 
Helpful & Revealing! 
Full Body Thermal Image
Full body imaging can provide a "body road map" which effectively points to indications of disease or areas in the body that need special attention before serious disease develops. This is a great preventative and restorative tool.

My clients and I are always surprised at the vast amount of information a full body scan can provide.

Heart Alert
For instance a recent full body thermography revealed concerns around the carotid artery pointing to indications of Occlusive Disease which relates to the arteries & the heart.
Although this person had received recent physicals, EKG's and other medical testing it was only the thermography which brought this serious concern to their doctor's attention.  

At the Thermography Centers we offer breast as well as full body thermal imaging for women and men 

We provide holistic care & guidance
You will receive gentle and compassionate care. Should the Thermologist's report see "areas of concern" we will guide you towards the right health practitioner for your needs. 
Call for an appointment or further information
805.560.7602 or visit us at
We look forward to seeing you all in the coming months.  Please remember to create a stable baseline with your 90 day follow up after your first thermography.  We have been able to identify and halt serious indications of disease developing in this time period. 
We wish you all a healthy and kind Autumn!

Be Well,
