    • Breast Cancer
      • Breast Cancer is the primary cause of DEATH
      • For women between the ages of
      • 35 and 54
      • Current research indicates
      • 1 in every 8
      • Women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime
    • Cancer cells do not play by the rules!
      • They turn our immune system against itself
      • Multiply unchecked
      • Steal nutrients
      • Re-route blood supply
      • Lack pre-programmed cell death
      • The cancer cells’ goal is to survive at all cost!
      • Early detection of breast cancer is crucial
    • What can you do?
      • Become familiar with the look and feel of your breasts; reports any changes to your doctor
      • Breasts are lumpy by nature, so do not panic if you locate a lump
      • Avoid toxic environmental ESTROGENS and Hormone Estrogen ( eg in Soft plastic products, plastic wrap, medical plastics, pesticide laden foods,
      • Avoid Cosmetics & deodorants containing PARABENS
      • Choose non-bleached Feminine hygiene products
      • Avoid Dark hair dyes which contain phynylene-diamine
    • Mammograms Are they safe & effective?
      • Mammography is a method of finding lumps
      • mammograms expose your body to radiation that can be 1 ,000 times greater than that from a chest x-ray, which poses risks of cancer
      • Mammography also compresses your breasts tightly, and often painfully, which could lead to a lethal spread of cancerous cells, should they exist.
    • Breast Thermography and MRI are safe alternatives to Mammography
      • THERMOGRAPHY
      • NO Radiation
      • SAFE
      • NO squeezing
      • Painless
      • Long before a lump is felt, HEAT is produced that can be detected via Thermography
    • Thermal Imaging is used in the following ways:
          • Risk Assessment
          • Adjunctive Diagnostic Information
          • Treatment Monitoring
          • Prognostic Indicator
          • IT IS NOT
              • A Stand Alone Screening Examination
              • A Diagnostic Examination
              • A Replacement Examination
    • Thermography
      • average sensitivity and specificity of 90%.
      • An abnormal thermogram is 10 times more significant as a future risk indicator for breast cancer than a first order family history of the disease.
      • Research shows the long-term survival rates increases as much as 61%.
      • When used as part of a multimodal approach (clinical examination + mammography + thermography) 95% of early stage cancers will be detected.
    • TH-1 Low Risk
    • TH-5 Very High Risk
    • TH-3 Medium Risk
    • The Follow Up
    • Medical Imaging
    • TH-4 Right Breast
      • Patient reported palpable lump right breast at 8-9 o’clock.
      • No other tests or reports available at the time of this evaluation.
      • Strong family history of breast cancer. Referred for structural testing, later confirmed positive
    • Tracking
        • TH 1 Lowest Annual
        • TH 2 Low Risk 9 Months – 1 Year
        • TH 3 Medium Risk Structural test and 6 month follow up
        • TH 4 High Risk Structural test and 3-6 month follow up
        • TH 5 Highest Risk Referral and 3 month follow up
    • Reaction - Breast Cancer In 1860’s 1 in 91 women had breast cancer Now 1 in 8 women have breast cancer The Pill In 1968 – 1.5 million women took birth control pill, later took fertility drugs that lead to ovarian cancer Today 16 million women in the US are on the Pill
    • Breastfeeding
      • In 1935 – 17% of babies were bottle fed
      • In 1946 – 35%
      • In 1966 – 73%
      • In 1970 – 95%
      • In 1998 the annual sales of formula was $8 billion in the US alone
    • Synthetic HRT
      • PREMARIN – 15% is Equilin – Horses Estrogen that is eight times too potent
      • PROVERA – The True Villain - Has 150 listed side effects in the body
      • HYSTERECTOMY AND ANTI-DEPRESSANTS
