Thermography Questions and Answers

1. When should a woman start thermography screening is she doesn’t have a breast lump or pain?

A woman may want to get her first thermographic screening at 25 years old. Thermography detects cancer up to 8 years before mammograms. Women are certainly at risk for breast cancer by 33 years of age. The incidence of breast cancer at age 30 is 1 in 227, by 40, it is one in 68.

2. What is the risk of cancer in a woman who doesn’t have breast pain or a lump for having cancer with a TH1 or TH2?

Thermograms are graded from TH1 to TH5. TH1 and TH2 are very good evidence that a woman will not develop cancer in the next year. Of all the tests for breast screening, this is the most accurate at reassuring a woman she does not have breast cancer. A TH4 or TH5 is of concern that a woman may have breast cancer developing. Additional studies such as a mammogram might be recommended. The TH3 is the “fence sitter” and could go either way. The only way to know what will happen is to get another study and compare it to the previous thermogram to see if it develops into something more serious.

Quick reminder:

If you haven’t scheduled your thermogram this fall, the special continues until Halloween (October 31) at midnight. All of our October appointments are full, but the special will be honored if you pay by Halloween.

What hygenic drying agent has been found to increase ovarian cancer? Ladies: THIS IS IMPORTANT!

Application of baby talcum powder to the genital area and underwear increases the risk of ovarian cancer by 33%.

In 1971, an association between talc and ovarian cancer was first made. In 1982, the first large scale study on women by Dr. Daniel Cramer et al in the journal Cancer, found a 92% increased risk in ovarian cancer in women who used genital talc. Dr. Cramer has been a tireless advocate to mandate that Johnson and Johnson (the primary distributor of talc used for humans) to label the product with health warnings. There have been 22 additional studies showing a link between talc usage and ovarian cancer. Since 1993, The US National Toxicology Program found clear evidence of carcinogenic activity of talc. In 2003, a meta-analysis of 16 talcum powder studies found that application of talc to the genial area increased the incidence of ovarian cancer by 33 %. Despite the discrepancy between Dr. Cramer’s research and the meta-analysis, there is still a statistically significant incidence of ovarian cancer in talcum users.

There has been a jury award of $55 million to Gloria Ristesund of Sioux Falls SD, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer after 40 years of talcum usage. Talc was found in her ovarian tissue.

Another patient Jacqueline Fox of Birmingham AL used J & J talc for 35 years, and died of ovarian cancer last year. Her family was awarded $72 million.

J&J is facing now 1,200 lawsuits in Missouri and New Jersey, charging it with fraud, negligence, conspiracy, and failing to warn consumers about the cancer risks.

An Abnormal Thermography and Natural Healing

A patient in November of 2015 had an abnormal thermogram. She has a strong family history of breast cancer. She was a TH3 in her right breast.  This is called the “fence sitter”, it is not normal but not abnormal.  This lady researched cancer and decided to take matters into her own hands.  She did the Budwig diet, ate organic, ate broccoli sprouts, used the essential oils Frankincense, and drank Essiac tea.  You can see the before and after views of her thermograms.  She was TH3 on the right breast in November 2015 and is a TH1 in March 2016.





BACKGROUND: Two (2) replicate sets of three (3) high-resolution radiometric infrared images were made of the anterior and the right and left lateral aspects of the thorax to feature the breasts. The second set of images was made immediately after the patient withdrew both hands from a one-minute immersion in cold (approx. 11°C) water. This procedure is a deliberate and simple dynamic functional challenge that anticipates the adaptive constriction of normal blood vessels with consequent cooling of the skin. The challenge is intended to differentially indicate regions of unregulated hyperemia that are reliably and proximately associated with solid cancerous neoplasm. The results of this challenge are coupled with specific features of vascular configuration, quantitative thermal differentials and, where available, time-based evolution of thermal patterns and levels to provide a multi-parametric risk assessment for malignant breast disease. The patient’s related history includes a 1989 bilateral prothetic augmentation, the current administration of estrogenic hormonal medication and a familial and a personal risk factor(s) for breast cancer. The patient’s related history includes ‘discolored’ discharge from the right and left nipples as a symptom(s) associated with breast disease.

Check out our new technique to help with pelvic issues in both men and women.

This includes dribbling, urinary urgency and sexual dysfunction.

There is a new injection technique that helps men or women with incontinence issues and helps women with painful intercourse.

Women can have these issues from having children or having gynecological surgery.

Men also can have incontinence from surgeries such as those related to prostate cancer.

This technique takes less than 30 minutes in the office. We recommend a series of 4 injections over a 4 week period.

Be Happy Now

Top five regrets of the dying written by a caregiver Bronnie Ware author of “The Top Regrets of the Dying: A Life Transformed by the Dearly Departing”

Top five regrets of the dying written by a caregiver Bronnie Ware author of The Top Regrets of the Dying: A Life Transformed by the Dearly Departing

I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
I wish that I had let myself be happy.

And not a mention of not having enough sex….


Cologuard® Is Back

The stool screening test for early cancer detection has reemerged. Cologuard requires the donation of a stool sample and does not require special dietary restrictions. It is 92% accurate for detecting cancer, but detected less than half of advanced precancerous lesions. Cost is about $600.

Qwest Labs has another test called the Septin-9. This blood test is very convenient, requires no dietary restrictions but is only 70% accurate. The cost is about $600.

The test I have used for years is the Fecal Immunochemical Test (FITs) and does not require special dietary preparation. This test is about 74% accurate and costs around $50.

Current guidelines by the American College of Gastroenterology recommend colonoscopy starting at age 50 and repeating every 10 years. When colonoscopy is not available or the patient declines the procedure, guidelines recommend annual fecal occult blood tests. Some guidelines now recommend computed tomography colonography every 5 years as another alternative test for average risk patients. Beware of the high radiation levels with this form of cancer screening

Real Affordable Health Care?

I was invited to a meeting to understand a new health care co-op – O’Na Health Care. It is a Native American Health Care Plan. You do not need to be a Native American to participate.

For legal reasons:

O’Na Health Care cannot be referred to as a medical insurance plan.
O’Na Care must be applied for.

The type of client that they want to help are people interested in natural health methods and in taking responsibility for personal health.

In this system, reimbursement will be allowed for alternative healing methods.

The deductible is $5,000 for a single person, $10,000 for a family.
Your monthly premium may be as low as half of what you are currently paying.
Dependent children up to age 26 can be covered on the parent’s policy.
This plan is an opt-out for Obama-care, and can take the place of medical insurance.

I’m considering signing up as a provider of these plans and I like to know what you think.

Please email me with your opinion at O’Na Health Care – response
