Why is a 90-Day Follow Up Visit so Important?

Thermography is a wonderful tool for preventive health care and women’s breast health screenings. But the real value of the thermal study is a comparison of her thermal pattern over time. When a woman comes in for her initial screening, we have captured a snapshot in time of her thermal pattern. Although this can be considered a “baseline,” it is not a “stable baseline.”
Every woman has their own unique thermal pattern, or signature. So while her pattern may raise a concern, we need to know if that pattern is stable. In other words, has there been an increase in the temperature of a “thermal anomaly?” Has the identified anomaly grown in size? Are there any new patterns? These are questions that can only be answered by having the follow up study done and comparing the initial images with the 90 day follow-up images. Then, if there is no change in the pattern, we can say that she has a “stable baseline.”
At Medical Thermography Associates, we strongly believe in early detection and preventive healthcare, and that is why we promote the concept of the 90 day follow up for our female patients. This way, we can capture changes as soon as possible and provide our patients with the earliest identification of a change in the normal vascular activity of their breasts.

WHAT’S HAPPENING AT MEDICAL THERMOGRAPHY ASSOCIATES?

February filled our hearts and minds, with the excitement of exhibiting at the NY Women’s Expo, insightful presentations from Jennifer Burke, Occupational Therapist, of Creative Health Solutions and Dr. Frederick Dreher, Holistic Dentist. Additionally, our monthly “The Truth About Cancer” eye opening documentary series viewing continued.

We followed Jen Burke’s rollercoaster journey managing Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, learned some valuable tips to use now and how Medical Thermography helped change the course of her treatment after 25 years.

Dr. Dreher and his staff shared amazing facts on the dangers of mercury fillings, awareness on the Oral/Systemic link to illness and why treating the body and patient as a whole is so important.
Additionally, the continuing documentary series, “The Truth About Cancer” Episode 4 opened our eyes to numerous ways to combat cancer and ways we can prevent it from growing in our bodies. Stay with us or join us for the first time this month and next, as we continue on a path to continued wellness. All evening workshops are held at our 2 Chelsea Place, Clifton Park office. Watch Facebook for event postings or call the office to RSVP. We will gladly save a space for you.

This month, we are excited to offer you news and special offers in support of your femininity and immune system function. A Core health screenings can help identify thermal patterns associated with immune system function. Our Core heal screening also includes breast images, part of your breast health screening. This month, we are also offering you a complimentary luxurious AromaTouch Therapy Session with each Full Body Scan. See our pricing specials on Women’s Health (Core) Screening in support of this. As usual, we have lined up some insightful wellness presentations; our wellness contribution to the community.

Medical Thermal Imaging for Preventative Screening With over 8,000 journals published worldwide, medical thermal imaging has plenty of research to support its use for non-invasive and preventative screening. Most recently it has been promoted for use in early detection of breast cancer. Read more

Breast Cancer Prevention or Detection… What Women Really Want

We hear so much about the importance of early detection for breast cancer to “save lives,” but women really want to know how to prevent breast cancer. Early detection is not prevention. Prevention is supported through breast health education, risk factor awareness, and lifestyle modification. Now more than ever, women can capitalize on the preventive resources and tools available on their journeys to better breast health. Read more

Thermography for the Prevention of Breast Cancer We are all familiar with breast cancer walks, races, fund-raisers, luncheons, etc., raising millions if not billions of dollars for research for “the cure”. Why then, in 1940 only 1 in 22 women got breast cancer, yet today it is 1 in 8? Shouldn’t we be focusing on prevention, rather than wait until we are diagnosed to do something about it? Read more

Cancer Facts and Fictions, Breast Cancer, Hormones, Skin Cancer & Essential Oils

Evaluation of digital infra-red thermal imaging as an adjunctive screening method for breast carcinoma: a pilot study.

Early screening plays a pivotal role in management of breast cancer. Given the socio-economic situation in India, there is a strong felt need for a screening tool which reaches the masses rather than waiting for the masses to reach tertiary centers to be screened.

Why Mammography Screening is being Abolished in Switzerland

Last year, the Swiss Medical Board, an independent health technology assessment initiative, was asked to prepare a review of mammography screening. The team of experts on the board included a medical ethicist, a clinical epidemiologist, a pharmacologist, an oncologic surgeon, a nurse scientist, a lawyer, and a health economist. Read more

In the Community Medical Thermography Associates can be found at these upcoming events, educating the public about the value of Thermography scans and early detection.

“Prevention is better than cure.”   -Desiderius Erasmus  

What is the Lymphatic System and what’s so important about it?

lymphatic-systemMany people have heard of it, but what is the “Lymphatic System”? “The lymphatic system is part of your immune system and the term includes all of the organs and cells which are part of the immune system. This includes the lymph nodes, lymphocytes (i.e. special disease-fighting white blood cells) and organs like the spleen and bone marrow which make and store lymphocytes. The lymphatic system is inter-connected by a fine network of tiny microscopic lymphatic vessels, which are present throughout your body like a net, through which lymphatic fluid circulates.”

Quite often the lymphatic system becomes “congested”. Medical thermography is able to “see” the evidence of lymphatic congestion. We have found that approximately 80% of our (female) patients have lymphatic congestion to one degree or another.

This congestion has been correlated to development of Breast Cancer as well as arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome and other medical conditions. However lymphatic congestion, particularly Axillary (armpit) center of the lymph system, can be “cleared” naturally, without the use of medicine or surgery and you can often do it by yourself.

The key is to know how the lymphatic fluids flow in the body and how to move them when there is a congestion. Quite often this can be done with a simple technique known as “Dry Brushing”.

Medical Thermography Associates is working with Seton Health’s Sandie Sanderson who is an expert on the lymphatic system and lymphedema and Maria Nguyen, who is a licensed massage therapist who specializes in lymphatic massage.

Sandie and Maria will be doing a workshop on “The Lymph System, What It Is and How It Works” and will teach participants how to do dry brushing for lymphatic clearing. The workshop will be held on Tuesday, March 3,, 2015 from 7pm – 8pm at our offices located at 2 Chelsea Place, Clifton Park, NY 12065.
