Breast Cancer Awareness: How Do You Prevent Breast Cancer?

By Linda Weber Spradling

The subject of risk and screening for breast cancer is very complex and controversial even among medical professionals. More women are getting breast cancer and they are getting it at younger and younger ages. Most breast cancers occur in women with no known risk factors. How can you find peace of mind?

Hormone balance, diet, nutrition and exercise! The state of your general health and how well your immune system is functioning are your strongest defenses against any disease. To quote Dr. Thomas Hudson, MD., author of “Journey to Hope”, “Prevention knows no boundaries.”

Western medicine is very good at fighting disease but we are on our own to bridge the wide gap between western medicine and preventive health or alternative therapies. Screening for early detection saves lives. Mammography is not effective for all women. Adding thermography as a complimentary tool to mammography offers a 98% success rate for early detection. The two tests are very different and give different information, so the combination offers the most information available. Mammograms “see” structure, like tumors. Thermograms “see” function, like vascular activity, inflammation and lymphatic activity. Thermography can detect a problem early enough to reverse the disease without surgery or radiation. It offers breast “health” information.
More information about causes and prevention can be found in Dr. Christine Horner’s book, “Waking the Warrior Goddess”.

Medical Thermography of Metro St. Louis has offered thermal imaging in the metro area for over 7 years now. Traditional insurance companies do not reimburse for this test, however it is affordable for most. Upper body imaging offers additional information and an opportunity to maintain a more optimum state of health by finding disease earlier than traditional tests while it is easier to treat and reverse.
