Question: I know you recommend thermograms for cancer screening instead of mammograms. If something shows up on the test, what is the next step?
Dr. Brownstein's Answer:
Medical thermology is the science that uses infrared images of the human body for diagnostic purposes. In simpler terms, thermography uses the heat of the body to provide an image of the body. Hot areas of the body may indicate abnormal blood vessel growth, such as a cancerous lesion.
I have been recommending thermology as a diagnostic imaging procedure for the breasts for years because there is no radiation exposure. There are hundreds of studies validating diagnostic infrared imaging for breast cancer screening. In fact, some believe that thermoscans can pick up abnormalities years before mammograms do.
Once an abnormal area is picked up by an infrared picture, steps can be taken to reverse the warm areas. Supplements like calcium D-glucorate and indole-3-carbonyl have been very helpful in this regard. If an infrared picture determines a problem is worsening or persisting, then one can move to mammograms to confirm or refute the findings.
However, mammograms introduce too much radiation to recommend annual usage.
