Could You Be Brewing Cancer? Optimum Health Report #366

Thermography: An Alternative Way to Detect Breast Cancer

Greetings all!

Do you ever wonder if you could be brewing cancer? This is a common question in this day and age where cancers are so prevalent.

Some people advise a full body CAT scan to “look” but that is a lot of radiation and may not be the best test to look at early very small tumors. They may not be big enough to see.

A full physical exam is a necessary thing to do and for women a PAP smear and breast exam is a good idea annually. I don’t like mammograms as they are also radiation and not good for the breasts and often misleading as to what is going on. Breast thermography is much better and safer and gives information on potentially growing tumors years earlier than mammograms. To check for colon cancer a test called COLOGUARD seems to be very accurate and does not require a colonoscopy. This should be done annually if you are over 40 years old and your PCP can order this for you.

There are two other blood tests that can also be helpful. One is called Ivygene and can detect proteins from early growing tumors. The other is called a Cancer Metabolic Profile and also is any early detection test with blood and urine.

In my experience, early detection is best and doing this set of tests can put your mind at ease if the thought of cancer has been on your mind. Here at LifeWorks we specialize in detecting and treating cancer using integrative principles. We can help you to sort this out and give you a program for health so your chances of getting cancer are much less.

Have a great week.

What began as an experiment blossomed into LifeWorks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
