The Heat Is On

Women are repeatedly told that early detection of cancer is important and that we should have regularly scheduled mammograms.

What if, instead of looking for what has already gone very wrong, we had regularly scheduled checkups that helped us to make holistic course corrections in our overall health? What a concept, right!

Let’s use the analogy of your car. You take it in for regular maintenance and checkups, right? You want to make sure that everything is running smoothly and you do the maintenance required to prevent things  from blowing up in to very expensive repairs. So, why wouldn’t you do that for your own body?

Personally, I believe that every woman should include thermography as part of their regular health care practice.

Thermography utilizes a digital infrared imaging camera and computer to establish the physiology of your breast. It is safe and effective for all ages and all breast types. There is no squeezing, pressure, or touching of your breast. There is no harmful radiation from an x-ray.


Abnormal cells appear hotter than normal tissue because they require more food to sustain rapid growth. What is fascinating is that abnormal cells are capable of triggering new blood vessels to grow in your body. This concentration of blood vessels generates heat, which will then show up in contrast to the temperature of normal breast tissue on a thermographic image.

Thermography has an accuracy rate of 90% whereas mammograms have an accuracy rate of only 75%. However, just like some malignancies are not denser than normal breast tissue and will not show up on a mammogram, there are some malignancies that do not show an increase in blood supply. Therefore, they will not show up on thermography imaging.

As I mentioned in a previous blog, while all diagnostic tools are effective at what they do, only a biopsy can definitively confirm breast cancer.

What I like about thermography is that it does not cause any long term harm to your breast, the process is painless, and of all the tools out there, it is most suitable for my breast type. Best of all is its accuracy rate at a very early stage.

I believe that having this advanced knowledge would have given me the opportunity to address the issues with my physical body, my mental body, and my emotional body that created the abnormality in the first place, before the abnormal cells developed in to cancer.

As an interesting side note, of the four tools available to women (mammograms, ultrasounds, MRIs, and thermography), only thermography can be utilized as a preventative tool. And yet, it is the only diagnostic tool not covered under our BC medical services plan. Huh? Why is that? Well, I can give you a clue.

It’s not personal, it’s just business. So much business that Health Canada is being pressured to ban the import of thermography equipment in to Canada, a smear campaign is stating that thermography is just quackery, and efforts are being made to shut down thermography clinics across our country. This is in direct contradiction to the Health Canada statement that Canadians have a right to choice in our health care.

As with anything in your life, it is always best to be proactive. Whether you choose the path of conventional or traditional medicine, knowledge is power. Educate yourself on the real choices that are available to you, rather than relying on the dictates of big business.
