Be Empowered – Be Proactive

By Shawn R. Seuferer, Certified Clinical Thermographer, Thermography of Wisconsin

Thermography, or medical digital infra-red thermal imaging, is a beneficial screening tool which can help gauge a woman’s health risk status by identifying symptoms related to estrogen dominance, adrenal fatigue/insufficiency, thyroid dysfunction and hormone imbalance.

Because thermal screening is non-contact, noninvasive, painless and uses no radiation, regular imaging is an ideal proactive breast screening tool for women. And, when combined with mammography or ultrasound, which view structures within tissue, a more complete understanding of a woman’s breast health status can be determined. Even women who have dense tissue, have had mastectomies, or have implants can benefit from thermography as a tool to monitor their health.

With regular thermography screening, potential health conditions can be identified at the early stages, allowing a woman the advantage of early intervention and perhaps prevention of further development of disease or dysfunction. This allows more time to evaluate the many treatment options which, in turn, can result in a better outcome.

Many women understandably fear a breast cancer diagnosis. According to the American Cancer Society, a woman born in the U.S. has about a 13% chance of developing breast cancer sometime in her lifetime. This also means that she has an 87% likelihood that she will NOT develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Many factors play into that statistic: genetics, age, obesity, lifestyle, environment, emotional health, race, etc. and many of these factors are manageable.

It is important for us all to consider that our health is a matter of mind, body and spirit. Fearful thoughts can cause a cascade of negative effects on one’s health and well-being. This author recommends looking at breast care holistically and proactively building a team of specialists, therapies and tools to help monitor and maintain health and vitality. Positive attitude, regular exercise, healthy diet and restorative rest are all important factors which affect breast health.

Why not be proactive in your health? Better yet, help empower another woman to be proactive with her health. Thermography is a great place to start. Bring this article to your next Thermography of Wisconsin screening through October 2023 and receive $25 off the regular price of a breast screening.
