If you are a woman over 30, I’m sure you’ve heard that at some point you need to start getting regular mammograms. Lately, there has been more & more controversy about them, mostly regarding how often they should be done, and by the time a problem is found, it is usually some stage of cancer. Breast thermography is another tool you can use along with mammograms (or instead of, if you choose). Last week in our office we had someone who did a presentation to about a dozen women about thermography, explaining what it was and its benefits.
Also, the New York Times recently ran an article “For Women, a More Complicated Choice on Mammograms” which brought more people questioning the procedure, or at least when & how often to have one done.
For more information, read that article and/or check out this website to learn more about the benefits of breast thermography as a screening tool. While a mammogram (or even thermography) is really only a detection device and not prevention, the earlier you can catch a problem the better. Thermography appears to be the earliest way to detect a possible problem. Eat healthy, decrease your stress levels, get your Vitamin D, get adjusted, and do the research to decide what you want to do.
