Thermography and Breast Abnormalities

According to the National Institutes of Health, one woman in 8, will be a victim of breast cancer in her lifetime. We know that our environment, with chemicals and pesticides and hormone-laden meat, are all contributors to this. But also, mammography using ionizing radiation is problematic.

No doubt you have heard of MRIs and mammograms for detecting breast cancer, but let us introduce you to thermography which also gives women an assessment of any abnormalities that may be present and which may require further testing.

We know that breast cancer survival depends upon its earliest possible detection. Research has shown that if breast cancer is discovered in its earliest stages, the cure rates are excellent.

Who is at greatest risk for breast cancer?

Your chances of getting breast cancer increase if you have a family history of the disease although 75 percent of women who get breast cancer have no such history

Excess estrogen is the greatest single risk factor for breast cancer.

Thermography can warn women if they have excess estrogen within their breasts and the risk factors can be decreased with proper diet and lifestyle change.

What is Thermography?

Thermography is:

  • Non-invasive
  • No radiation
  • Painless
  • No contact with the body
  • D.A approved

This quick and easy test starts with your medical history being taken before you partially disrobe for the scanning to be performed. You do not have any contact with the equipment and your first 15-minute session provides the baseline of your ‘thermal signature'. A subsequent session assures that the patterns remain unchanged.

Thermography detects the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, and we can then plan accordingly and lay out a careful program to further diagnose and/or monitor you during and after treatment.

All of your thermograms (breast images) are kept on record so any changes can be detected during your routine annual studies.

When should women be screened?

All women should be screened starting at age 20. Approximately one-third of all breast cancers occur in women under the age of 45.

At LifeWorks, we refer our female patients to another clinic which offers thermography. If you are referred to them by one of our practitioners, then you have the option of having your thermography report sent to your LifeWorks practitioner for review at your next appointment.

All of your thermograms (breast images) are kept on record and once your stable thermal pattern has been established, any changes can be detected during your routine annual studies.

Thermography can also be applied to other specific areas to check for blockages in blood flow, such as the carotid arteries going up the neck to the brain. Blockages in these arteries can lead to premature strokes.

Thermography

Thermography, or the measuring of body temperature, was first documented around 400BC by the Greek doctor, Hippocrates. He wrote “In whatever part of the body excess of heat or cold is felt, the disease is there to be discovered”. From this concept has evolved the 21st century science of being able to measure subtle temperature...

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
