What is Breast Thermography?
Full Body Thermal Image
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

State of the Art Technology & a Certified Clinical Thermographer are here to guide you towards optimal breast health
Our thermal images are read by MD's certified by the American College of Clinical Thermology

What Doctors Are Saying About Breast Thermography and Breast Screening

Dr. Christiane Northrup,
"Since thermal imaging detects changes at the cellular level, studies suggest that this test can detect activity 8 to 10 years before any other test. This makes it unique in that it affords us the opportunity to view changes before the actual formation of the tumor. Studies have shown that by the time a tumor has grown to sufficient size to be detectable by physical examination or mammography, it has in fact been growing for about seven years achieving more than 25 doublings of the malignant cell colony. At 90 days there are two cells, at one year there are 16 cells, and at five years there are 1,048,576 cells--an amount that is still undetectable by a mammogram."

"An abnormal breast thermogram is the highest known risk marker for the presence of or future development of breast cancer. As such, breast thermography should be a part of every woman's regular breast health care."
William Hobbins, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Fellow - American College of Surgeons
Women's Breast Health Center

"The use of computerized medical infrared imaging for breast cancer detection, diagnosis, and as a high risk and prognostic indicator leads to both earlier detection of breast cancer and increases the overall survival of breast cancer patients."
Robert Elliot, M.D., Ph.D.
Comprehensive Breast Care Specialist
Founder and Director - EEH Breast Cancer Research and Treatment Center
President - American Mastology Association

Dr. Robin Bernhoft in Ojai states,
"A leading breast surgeon at Harvard estimates that frequent exposure to mammograms increases lifetime risk 25%.   Additionally, many oncologists fear that the mechanical breast compression which mammography requires may facilitate the spread of breast cancer cells to distant locations.  Data on these points are not clear-cut.  However, there is considerable evidence that mammography leads to overdiagnosis and unnecessary breast biopsy surgery, especially in women ages 40-49.  Digital infrared thermography, which is 88 to 96% reliable in various studies around the world, exposes the patient to no radiation.  It merely uses an infrared camera to find "hot spots" caused by blood vessel changes associated with tumors.  Since these changes occur quite early in the growth of breast tumors, thermography has the ability to pick up breast cancer at a much earlier, smaller, and probably more curable stage of development than mammography (which generally does poorly with small tumors)." 



Dr. Mercola,
"Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women, who have a one in eight chance of developing this disease during their lifetime. It is the most common cancer
Thermography can increase your chances of detecting breast cancer in its earliest stages by locating irregular patterns in the breast - conditions that occur before a noticeable lump is formed.
Thermal imaging looks at vascular changes in the breast and detects blood flow patterns, inflammation and asymmetries. Mammograms, on the other hand, focus on anatomical changes, like masses or lumps in the breast tissue.
Aside from breast cancer, thermography screenings can also help detect many other conditions, including heart disease, arthritis, neck and back pain, sinus issues, dental issues, immune dysfunction, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, carpal tunnel syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, Crohn's disease, etc."

When in doubt, cut it out!

That's been the breast cancer industry's sickening mantra for years.

The moment a mammogram or biopsy turns up a tumor -- or even abnormal tissue -- you'll have some mainstream surgeon in your ear promising that a lumpectomy or mastectomy will save your life.

He'll even tell you that it's better to be safe than sorry.

But a massive new study proves that thousands of American women are being needlessly disfigured and traumatized ever single year. All thanks to aggressive breast surgery that we now know won't add a single day to your life.

Evidence be damned!

Earlier this year I told you about the crucial importance of getting a second opinion for a breast cancer diagnosis, especially if that diagnosis is ductal carcinoma in situ. DCIS, as its known, is the presence of abnormal cells in the milk ducts of the breast.

Note the key word here: abnormal. The cells are not necessarily cancerous and may never become cancerous. They're simply abnormal.

That's why DCIS rates a zero in breast cancer's five stages. Zero!

And if that sounds like it deserves the lowest level of concern, you're right.

But instead of actually educating women about DCIS, it looks like mainstream surgeons are just steering them into painful, disfiguring -- and totally pointless -- surgeries instead.

In a study in the most recent issue of JAMA Oncology, researchers followed more than 100,000 women for 20 years after they'd been diagnosed with DCIS. Nearly all of them ended up having either a lumpectomy or a mastectomy.

And, believe it or not, some were even encouraged to get a double mastectomy.

A double mastectomy! For a condition that might not even be cancerous. It looks like an awful lot of surgeons must be checking their ethics -- and their shame -- at the operating room door.

And here's the worst part -- it was all for nothing. The women who received surgery to treat their DCIS had the exact same chance of dying of breast cancer in the 20 years after the operation as they had before it.

These women were put through physical and emotional trauma that lasts forever. And they won't live one extra minute for their trouble.

About one-quarter of so-called breast cancer cases in America today involve DCIS -- so you can bet that tens of thousands of women are being victimized by these unnecessary surgeries every single year.

You can almost hear the disgust in lead researcher Dr. Steven Narod's voice when he was asked what his study revealed about how we should be handling DCIS.

"I think the best way to treat DCIS is to do nothing," he told The New York Times.

But as you can imagine, that's been a pretty tough sell with the breast cancer industry that's making a fortune off these operations. The chief breast cancer surgeon at Memorial Sloan Kettering and the top medical officer at the American Cancer Society both said surgeons should keep doing what they're doing.

In other words, lop off those breasts -- the evidence be damned.

But the truth is, you should never agree to any course of treatment or DCIS without having at least two pathologists look at your results. As I told you this spring, a large study involving several of the nation's top hospitals found that pathologists misdiagnose DCIS all the time.

And no woman should have to suffer through a painful surgery, or have a breast removed, based on a faulty lab report.

If you're worried about DCIS progressing, experts say there are some simple things you can do to slash your breast cancer risk. Regular exercise, sufficient sleep, reducing stress, and eliminating added sugars (which feed cancer cells) can go a long way toward prevention.

Plus studies have found that your breast cancer risk is lowest when your vitamin D levels are consistently high.

And all of these healthy habits sound a lot better to me than agreeing to an aggressive, disfiguring surgery that's may wreck your life, but probably won't save it. 


There is a lot of new research indicating A-MA-TA or the root of the Pueraria Minifica plant can reduce or even alleviate the symptoms of menopause.  
I think it is worth discussing with your holistic healthcare practitioner!
