omg! i feel so naked right now!! :)
what is this?
My thermogram. In short, It detects "hot spots" which "could" be indicative of issues in your body. Basically, the ORANGE colored ones could be indicative of what is going on in my body. This is my 2nd--- 6th month Cancer marker Test. It indicates minimal "hot spots" that essentially correlate to where I started when I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer 9-2015. My previous test was an HCG (i call it a cancer pee test) and the results were basically the same. I chose these 2 tests because they are very "non-invasive" to the body. I will take these tests every 3 months for the next year to see if I have any changes from test to test. So now I have a baseline and can move from there to keep this cancer in check. Here is what I had to do to prepare for my Thermogram....
THEN WHAT HAPPENED?
I met with a woman name Eniko Fodor who did my actual scan. I had to rest naked from waist up and hold my hands above my head for about 5 minutes to let it all air out. Nothing unusual for me.. :) Then Eniko used a digital camera on a stand that looks like one of those really old school cameras from the early 1900's. It was connected to a computer so it could scan my upper body frontside and backside. I stood center , then turned and posed right, turned and posed to the left, then turned and posed with my back to the camera. Yes I smiled for each pic even though you can't see it. :) She sent my scans away to a doctor who actually reads the scans and then sends the results via email to me with a security code so no one can check out my boobies on line without my consent:). This is some of what they sent back to me along with the images above...
what exactly is thermography and why?
My understanding that YES being proactive with "early detection" is key to beating cancer. However, I have also learned that a Mammogram compresses the breast so much that it CAN help SPREAD the cancer that might already exist. I have also learned that the DIE that is used during an MRI has toxic elements that can stay in the body. This made me feel like those were not options for me at this point in time. Remember the whole idea is that my immune system is down because there are so many toxins in my body. I cannot be purrfect and eliminate EVERY toxin, BUT I can make an effort to pick and choose and eliminate MOST from my daily life in many ways. (I will re-discuss this in another blog) Here is a simple low-down about Thermography....
if you want to try this out, this is the company i used...
No this is not covered by insurance. My 1st visit is $225, all follow ups are $125. I was able to schedule an off-site appointment at a facility in Chicago. I also would imagine you can do this sort of BODY scan on other parts or your whole body. I feel good about using this method and will continue to mark my journey. I am feeling good and will keep charging forward. This COULD very likely just STAY AS IS and I live with it my whole life. I will just need to keep up with all the NON-TOXIC changes I have made in my life and work towards eliminating most TOXIC things from my life forever and ever and ever.... on my!
