• Breast Health Awareness

  • Breast tissue is delicate; the breasts are like the "canary in the coal mine." They can tell us what is going on in our environment. The breasts are connected to many systems of the body and breast tissue is particularly responsive to estrogen and progesterone which are hormones produced by the ovaries and adrenal glands.

    The proper balance of estrogen and progesterone is not only essential for maintaining healthy breast tissue, it is also important that the estrogen receptor sites are available for natural estrogen to bind. Today's environment is polluted with synthetic estrogens called "Xenoestrogens" which are found in herbicides, pesticides and petroleum by-products such as plastics. They are also found in make-up, hair care and skin care products. These synthetic estrogen mimickers may cause havoc to a woman's health if they bind onto the estrogen receptor sites.

    Screening for changes in breast tissue is an essential component of being proactive. Traditional screening methods such as mammography, ultra sound, breast self-examination and MRI's are looking for "structural changes" in breast tissue. Computerized Digital Infrared Thermography, another screening tool, assesses "functional changes" which occur before any tissue structural change takes place.
