Let's talk about thermography and Mammography
Thermography is non-invasive and a great alternative or complimentary to mammograms. One of the ways I monitor my breast and lymph health is through toxic-free thermography imaging. I check myself yearly with a women’s wellness session with my thermographer to check not just my breasts but my whole body for any inflammation or other issues.
In the age-old battle against cancer, mammography was, for a while, rightly regarded as the most effective method of identifying cancer in the breast. But research and technology move on quickly and for some time now there have been other options that provide an earlier and more accurate indication of cancer risk. This includes Thermography and ultrasonography.
The simple fact is that a mammogram, even at 100% accuracy, can only ever tell you that you already have the disease. It’s not in any way preventative. And it’s not 100% accurate, either. I can vouch for this statistic too. When I did my first (and last) mammogram I actually HAD BREAST CANCER AT STAGE 2 (of course I didn't know it at the time), and the mammogram came back NEGATIVE.
In fact, there is now strong evidence to suggest that the majority of women would have a lower risk of cancer if they didn’t attend mammography screening.
This was the conclusion of a significant piece of research called "Screening for Breast Cancer Using Mammography" which was carried out by the highly-respected, globally-renowned and – crucially – completely independent Cochrane Institute.
In short, what the report makes clear is that for every 2000 women who undergo mammography regularly for ten years, only one death will be prevented whilst ten otherwise healthy women will become cancer patients as a direct result of the mammography screening method.
Put another way, the law of averages suggests you have a greater chance of remaining healthy if you don’t undergo a regular mammogram.
The truly frightening thing about the report is that very few women are told research exists to suggest that regular mammography – peddled by the cancer industry as something of a silver bullet in the war on breast cancer – can actually cause the very disease you’re trying to protect yourself from.
As I’ve said before, other countries are already in the process of reviewing whether mammography has a place in modern cancer care. Switzerland has already discontinued its use as a screening tool.
Yes, times they are a changing. It's important to empower ourselves with knowledge and know what our options are when it comes to our health. We are our own best health advocates. That's what inspired OWN YOUR OHM HEALTH since the beginning.
