PRLog - Sep. 25, 2010 - SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- October is, of course, Breast Cancer Awareness month which always gives reason to pause. Let’s reclaim this beautiful autumn month and rename it Breast Health Awareness month instead and celebrate all the natural options dancing on the edge of the spotlight.
In the light of so much confusion around mammograms and women’s breast health stands the simplicity of an efficient and non-invasive screening technique, called breast thermography. Breast thermography can screen for indications of breast disease up to ten years before a mammogram, at the cell stage, when we can still halt and reverse indications of disease holistically. Thermography is also effective for dense breasts & breasts with implants. Although medical thermography has been around for over two decades it is just now stepping into the limelight.
The first real step to avoiding and halting breast cancer is as easy as educating and empowering women to make their own decisions based on sound and authentic information. Breast thermography is a 100% safe & non-invasive early screening option which more and more women are turning towards.
Jackie Kane, Exec. Dir. of the Thermography Center of Santa Barbara believes we are at the tipping point stating, “As a Certified Clinical Thermographer I often hear from my clients about their desire to have safe and effective options for monitoring and caring for their breast health without exposure to radiation or compression of their breasts, which they fear can cause cells to spread. I think it is important to let women know that there are choices available to them whether they choose thermography, mammogram, ultra sound or a combination of the above. I’d have to say that 99% of the women who come to me are choosing thermography as their prime screening method for breast disease, as they perform their own research and read the recent reports which shed an unattractive light on radiation from medical imaging.”
Breast Thermography offers women a sensible choice with State of the Art digital thermal imaging. Thermal imaging detects abnormal heat generated by new blood vessel growth in the area of tumors as well as heat generated from other abnormalities that need not be cancer such as lymph congestion, fibrocystic symptoms and estrogen dominance.
Kane goes on to state, “As with any medical imaging, it is highly recommended that you create a stable baseline for added assurance and we are able to do this within ninety days of the first screening. We do not need to wait six months to a year to see changes in the body’s physiology. We can see indications of cell proliferation when it takes place in ninety days.”
This procedure empowers women to make decisions at the earliest moment possible and to take a pro-active approach to their health through nutrition, hormone balancing and healthy detoxification. Lymph congestion, estrogen dominance, cysts and even calcifications can often be relieved with non- invasive approaches such as lymphatic therapy and a nutritional detoxification program guided by a health practitioner.
“I have found that true peace of mind comes at the moment we understand that we have the power to heal ourselves,” states Kane adding, “It is my goal to make breast thermography as common and vital as your annual pap test, as well as affordable. We encourage women, and the men whose lives they touch, to educate themselves about the option of breast thermography and to make wise decisions after considering all the information available.”
