Breast Thermography Early Detection Tool for Early Prevention of Breast Cancer Breast Thermography is an excellent tool for preventive breast health. Unlike mammography, whose function is to detect a tumor after it has already formed and grown big enough to be seen by the mammogram. The function of the breast Thermogram is to allow prediction on risk of breast cancer. It shows changes typically associated with the formation of cancers. Thus, the clinical use of breast Thermography is preventive (allows you to take action before the
cancer) while mammography is corrective (take action after the cancer is already there).
The Thermogram is rated according to risk (Thermal rating 1 to 5) with levels 1 and 2 yielding a 99% confidence that there is no breast cancer present. A level 5 risk suggests a high risk of cancer already present (even if it just recently started and is microscopic). As the pattern suggestive of declining breast health evolves and becomes more pronounced, the risk level rises. Another way of looking at this is that the pattern shows a gradual decline in breast health, i.e., statistically getting closer to having cancer. Similarly, if no change is taking place year after year, this suggests a stable breast health condition. It is always nice to know that no new vessels or hot spots are developing.
It is even more rewarding to see that a high thermal pattern reading can be reduced when a programme is devised and followed suggesting that whatever is being done is (statistically) reducing the risks. In Ireland 1 in 10 women wil get breast cancer, a risk which increases with age, it is comforting to know that what we are doing is helping our health. We don’t have to just wait for bad news. It’s a great feeling to know we can have some visibility and control here. Thus, the added uses of Thermography are: > Monitoring breast health > Monitoring changes (improvement as well as decline) > Monitoring for adverse changes after treatment of breast cancer > Monitoring to see if the breast health program is effective. > Helping to monitor hormone replacement therapy > Another interesting use for the breast Thermogram is to help monitor hormone replacement therapy. When estrogen dominance is present this represents an imbalance, between estrogen and progestrone and we begin to see a pattern suggestive of higher risk. It is advisable in this case to complete a full investigation of the female hormone profile including the metabolism of estrogen. “Ctrl and Click” the link below:t= https://www.youtube.com/embed/aaS3VIyltJQ
What is Thermography and what are the differences between a Mammogram and Thermogram? Infrared Breast Thermography is an imaging of the temperatures on the surface of the breast and is a risk assessment tool. It does not replace Ultrasound, Mammography and/or MRI but has been an important FDA-approved tool for adjunctive breast cancer risk assessment since 1982. Thermography and Mammography are different, and both have an important role to play. Here is a comparison of the most important differences: Thermography A non invasive, radiation free, no contact, method of imaging the heat patterns given off by the body. These heat patterns reflect different aspects of risk and/or breast health. Functional assessment: Thermal pattern changes are reflective of physiological or functional changes Preventive: Most useful before there is a cancer to identify low vs. high risk. For example am I at high risk for developing a cancer? Helps monitor/ review your efforts to reduce your risk. For example is my risk level improving in response to my treatment protocol. Investigative: Thermography produces thermal images of the breast tissue and “The surrounding lymphatic tissue and glands”.
Our Services Naturopathy is based on 3 very simple core principles that are organic and fundamental to how we function. The body is self healing and can recover from any condition as long 1. as one is functioning as close to 100% as possible. 2. It is imperative to remove the root cause of most conditions and not just treat the symptoms al owing the body to return to health and happiness In order to restore and preserve health to 100% one must remove 3. any barriers to the healing process and restore the body’s natural ability to recover.

Salivary Hormone Testing Knowing your saliva hormone levels is an important first step in assessing where your hormones may be out of balance and determining whether your current natural hormone regime is working for you. If you are wondering whether certain symptoms may be due to a hormone imbalance, this is a quick, easy, and accurate way to find out. Thyroid Hormone Testing Thyroid imbalances have a far reaching effect and elicit fatigue, depression, coldness, constipation, poor skin, headaches, PMS, dysmenorrhea, fluid retention, weight gain, anxiety/panic attacks, decreased memory and concentration, muscle and joint pain and a low sex drive. A total Thyroid screen with reverse T3, to give the ful picture of the Thyroid health status Adrenal Function Testing Adrenal insufficiency refers to the inability of the adrenal glands to produce a normal quantity of hormones. It may also be defined as a reduced ability to cope with stress. It is one of the most common imbalances in our
population today. The Ragland test is a simple test of the blood pressure that can be done to see if one has a possible problem with their adrenal glands and is calculated on al new patients. Blood Draw Services Our office has a ful -time phlebotomist to draw blood for routine tests, function blood chemistry and any other needs. There is no need to go to a separate site. Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis Using a comprehensive routine blood test, we are trained to look not just at the laboratory ranges but to look more deeply into the results to look at early imbalances and malfunctions that can cause disease before it presents outside the set range. Other various functional tests We can order varieties of functional tests based on your needs such as Comprehensive Digestive Function tests, Neurotransmitter testing, Parasitology profile, and more.
