"What Women Should Know about mammograms & early detection
Thermography is an excellent adjunct or preliminary to a
mammogram without the radiation and is non invasive. Many
more things may be examined on both Men & Women.

Revolutionary and Safe Diagnostic Tool Detects
You might not realize that cancer is now the
disease most likely to lead to your death. It passed
heart disease as the #1 killer a number of years
And if you are a woman, breast cancer is the type of
cancer you are most likely to get.
There are many approaches you can take to prevent
breast cancer (or any cancer), including the dietary
changes and lifestyle modifications I recommend on
However, if you already have breast cancer --
even in the early hidden stages -- you need a
radically different strategy, since the cancer could
kill you before your dietary and other changes take
Let me say this about mammograms: you may think
they are the ideal screening tool to give you a
warning stage before the cancer becomes far more
difficult to treat. Unfortunately...
Mammograms Can Actually INCREASE Your Risk of
That's why I don't recommend mammograms, despite
what you may hear from other medical sources. They
expose your body to radiation that can be
1,000 times greater than that from a chest x-ray
-- this makes you vulnerable unnecessarily to
further risks of radiation-induced cancer.
Additionally, mammography compresses the breasts
tightly (and often painfully), which could lead to a
lethal spread of any existing malignant cells.
And there is no solid evidence that
mammograms save lives. In fact, research
demonstrates that adding an annual mammogram to a
careful physical examination of the breasts does
not improve breast cancer survival rates over
getting the examination alone.
The Newest Safe Cancer Screening Tool
Fortunately, you now have some very effective
options based on finding inflammation -- the
precursor to many of these types of cancers.
For the longest time, it wasn't well-known that
inflammation was the culprit responsible for many
chronic diseases. However, many physicians like me
now recognize that inflammation is a
precursor to many diseases, such as cancer,
arthritis, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and high
And here's some good news: early detection of
inflammation may help you prevent many negative
health conditions from developing.
And while you can reduce inflammation with
dietary changes, nutritional supplements,
antioxidants, detoxification, stress reduction, and
Here's my diagnostic recommendation:
Find Out If You Have Inflammation Before
it Becomes a Major Problem
Although this information is of particular
interest to you if you're a woman, men will also
find it extremely helpful.
There's a new diagnostic high-tech tool that I've
recently welcomed to my clinic, The Natural Health
Center, and it specifically measures
It's called thermal imaging, or
thermography. In a nutshell, thistool creates a digital map of your body
that illustrates heat patterns -- patterns that may
detect some condition or abnormality. It uses a
scanning-type infrared camera that measures your
body surface temperature, presenting the information
as a digitized image.
These thermal images (called thermograms) are
analyzed for abnormalities that may be signs of
disease in your body. Additionally, since your body
is thermally symmetrical if normal, thermal
asymmetries can indicate problems.
I recommend this tool (you'll have to call the
Thermography Diagnostics Center
at 847-252-4311 to get it) because
measuring inflammation through thermal
imaging is a proactive, preventative method you can
use for detecting disease, which significantly
improves your chances for longevity and good health.
Additionally, thermograms provide:
accurate information for diagnosis, treatment,
objective data from accurate measurements of
financial savings over conventional
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging Offers You a
Higher Level of Prevention
And unlike most diagnostic tests, thermal imaging

So that leads you to wonder...
"How Can Thermography Really Help Me?"
If you're wondering how this new diagnostic
system will specifically help you better
achieve your health goals, let me reassure you:
There are a number of areas in which thermography
will help you better understand your body. But it
Early-Stage Disease Detection
Yes, it's true. Thermograms provide you with
early diagnosis and treatment assistance in such
problems as cancer, inflammatory processes,
neurological and vascular dysfunction, and
To get into a bit more detail, here's...
How Thermography Assists You in Breast Cancer
Thermography can detect irregular patterns in the
breast, conditions that occur before a noticeable
lump is formed.
In some cases, such as inflammatory cancer, there
are no lumps to be detected by self-exam or
mammogram. That's why adding thermography to your
annual routine can help with early detection.
You'll increase your chances of detecting
breast cancer in its earliest stages.
"But How are Thermographs Different From
Mammograms look at anatomical changes in the
breast, as they detect masses or lumps in the breast
tissue. On the other hand, thermograms look
at vascular changes in the breast, as they
detect blood flow patterns, inflammation and
Thermograms benefit all women. They may be
particularly useful for young women who want to
monitor their breast health before the recommended
age of 40. Actually, your breast cancer prevention
should start as early as possible.
If you are a woman, you need to take your breast
One in Eight Women Will Get Breast Cancer at Some
Point in Their Life
Proper breast self-exams, physician exams, and
now thermography together provide you with the
earliest detection system available.
The benefit of this new technology -- digital
infrared thermal imaging -- is that it offers you
the opportunity of earlier detection of breast
disease than has been possible through breast self
examination, doctor examination, or mammography
Thermal imaging detects the subtle physiologic
changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it
is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection or a

And annual thermograms allow
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
Yet breast imaging is only one benefit of
thermograms. Another area that can be of benefit to
both sexes is pain diagnosis...

While x-rays, CT scans, ultrasound, and MRI scans
are all tests of "anatomy" that measure structures
of your body, thermography is unique in its
ability to measure your physiological changes and
What Else Can Thermography Help Detect in Your Body?
Early stage disease detection is another area in
which thermography excels. For instance, let's take
heart disease prevention.
Thermography screenings can assess heart
function and detect inflammation in the carotid
arteries (which may be a precursor to stroke and
blood clots). When inflammation and/or
occlusion of the carotid is visible, your doctor may
do additional testing. Earlier detection of a heart
problem may save your life.
And here are some other examples:
Arthritis: Thermography can help you
detect early signs of arthritis -- and
differentiate between osteoarthritis and more
severe forms like rheumatoid. Effective early
treatment strategies can then be implemented,
before you experience further degeneration.
and Back Pain: Thermal pain patterns
‘light up' white and red hot on a scan in the
involved area. You can get relief faster and
begin restorative care that more precisely
targets the correct area.
Issues: If you have TMJ, gum disease,
or an infected tooth, this will show up on a
thermal scan as white or red hot.
Issues & Headaches: Significant heat in
your forehead or sinus region revealed on a
thermal scan is an indicator that these systems
in your body are not functioning properly.
Dysfunction, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue:
The immune system correlates to the T1 andT2
areas of your spine -- high levels of heat in
that region can indicate immune dysfunction. On
the other hand, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia,
and aching joints are just a few complaints that
correlate to cool patterns seen at this area.
Tunnel Syndrome (CTS): This condition
is often misdiagnosed. For instance, you may
think you have CTS, yet the scan shows your neck
is referring pain from a different affected
area. This will help you get the most
Digestive Disorders: Irritable bowel
syndrome, diverticulitis and Crohn's disease are
often visible with thermography. If you're able
to address these conditions early on, you'll
find that health restoration is much more
Conditions: Including bursitis,
herniated discs, ligament or muscle tear, lupus,
nerve problems, whiplash, stroke screening,
cancer, and many, many others.
With all the great benefits of thermography, it
may sound complicated -- but it's not!
Here's What Happens When You Get a Thermogram
Here are the simple steps you'll follow when you
get a thermogram:
1: You sit in a temperature-controlled
room to allow your body to cool from any
external conditions. At that time, you'll
complete some simple paperwork, including a
2: You're positioned in front of a
Thermal Imaging Camera, and the technician takes
digital pictures (5-15 minutes). You will be
able to see yourself "live" on the computer
screen, which can help give you a better
understanding of your body.
3: Your pictures are sent out to a
certified physician for analysis of 1)
the amount of heat and 2) the
symmetry of the heat patterns. Heat
patterns may indicate inflammation, infection,
or a variance from your body's norm.
4: You'll receive a report of findings
in your mail shortly thereafter. This will help
you and your doctor determine any next steps. We
also provide recommendations for ways to reduce
inflammation, if present, and provide personal
health coaching programs if desired.
5: We recommend you return for
thermograms annually to monitor your health and
watch for changes. Since everybody's body is
different, the best way to detect problems is to
measure changes from your own body's norm.
Not Just Some Experimental Tool
If you've never heard of thermography, you may
wonder how credible it is. Let me assure you that
the manufacturer of the Meditherm Med2000® is well
established as the market leader in clinical
thermography -- with the largest network of
thermography systems installed in the world.
Your scans are actually analyzed and reviewed by
certified physicians who've specialized in
thermography. And the machine used at the
Thermography Diagnostics Center delivers a
higher degree of sensitivity and specificity than
other thermography systems on the market.
Plus, when it comes to credibility, Meditherm
sponsors major research programs at Duke
University. Other research institutions
using Meditherm equipment in clinical trials include
UCLA, VA Hospital Durham, and a number of other
So you can rest assured this is a legitimate tool
for helping you gain your best health possible.
Take Your Next Step to Prevent Disease from
Gaining a Foothold
Please avoid the following on the day of your
thermogram: heavy exercise, deodorant, spicy
foods, hot beverages, body creams and lotions,
gum chewing, and tight-fitting clothing.
It's been my nature not to over-prescribe too
many diagnostic tools, tests, and procedures,
because many of them do nothing to help you prevent
disease and enhance your health.
So you know that when I endorse thermography,
I've looked long and hard at the benefits to you --
and found them significant. Even if you're feeling
OK today, it's good to have a baseline
thermogram done now, so you'll have
something to compare to if anything ever pops up
down the road.
And if you're female, please don't go the
mammogram route. Consider thermography part of your
annual health prevention regimen.
I suggest you don't wait... don't procrastinate.
