Many people are waking up on awareness that they can control a part of their health themselves. Yet often we are missing accurate information about what we can preemptively do to stay healthy. Will you really become healthier by running around and eating wheatgrass? Are you really doing so well with your green smoothies and gluten and sugar-free dietary products?
One thing is certain. We have become aware that we can do something for ourselves. Yet, no human being is the same as another. Our genes are different, even though we look very much alike genetically. No diet or supplement will keep us all healthy forever. We can, however, do a lot to maintain our health for as long as possible.
A Preventive Health Approach
It would be great if you could take a peek inside your body to see if you are on the right track with your preventive health approach and what you could improve. We try to tap into our bodies with devices that measure our blood pressure, cholesterol, fat percentage, and the number of steps we take each day. We have also devised methods that calculate our true age and what the level of antioxidants in our bodies is supposed to be.
It makes sense to work preemptively on our health. For society as a whole, a preventative health policy is also important. Look at the financial picture too. We really need to save on our health expenses. Health care costs are soaring, and the cost of health insurance increases annually. Moreover, many people—maybe you—also spend a lot of money on complementary care, which is often not reimbursed.
But with what research method are we really able to look at our personal body processes? How can we help ourselves and others in the future develop a preemptive health policy for all? This is the point where thermography and the discovery of our physiology comes into the frame.
What Is Thermography?
When it comes to breast health, the most beautiful research method is thermography. Let’s be clear on this right from the start of this book that thermography is not a stand-alone device. It’s not looking for cancer and a clinical follow up examination with ultrasound can often determine whether deviating patterns need more examination. Thermography can be seen as an exploration of all your bodily processes in an effort to see if those processes have changed and to check for any early stages of an ailment or disease.
And that’s what everyone wants—to not get sick and to gain an insight into their physical health to see if they’re doing well or if they need to improve something in their approach to health. I’m sure that’s what you would like to hear from your doctor. You want to know beforehand the signs of a serious illness, not just the fact that you are already ill. Thermography can give you a view on your changing physiology, which may or may not lead to an illness. It is the research method of the future. We must emphasize, though, that thermography cannot detect cancer. Mammography, ultrasound, MRIs, and prescans can’t either. Ultimately, doctors should investigate further any women with a high-risk thermogram. The only way to diagnose cancer is through tissue research after taking a biopsy.
You do not have to be sick to get better. Every one of us knows that feeling. You sense you have a problem but do not immediately go to the doctor. However, it’s the kind of ailment where you know you will feel a lot better once you take a nice brisk walk. This gives you a good indication of what preventative health care is about—an active attitude and taking care of your own health.
Do not wait until you experience health problems. Doctors are trained to diagnose and treat diseases. Every clinical training and all clinical literature deal with the treatment of disease. Which pathway precedes actually getting that disease is usually not addressed in their education. Read more about the six phases of disease in chapter 2.
Doctors who help you stay healthy after an illness are available. For example, you can find them within the group of doctors who deal with nontoxic tumor therapies or online. There are already many doctors who take a broader approach and see the added value of a regular treatment in combination with complementary ones. There are also doctors who give you clues for improving your quality of life by referring you to a physiotherapist, a podiatrist, a dietitian, you name it. But they usually do so only after the ailments have already arisen. What do you do if you do not want to develop any ailments or if you know that your existing symptoms are not resolved?
In the current system, how should a woman know her breast health is at risk? With the results of mammograms, many professionals say, “Everything seems okay. We have not found anything.” Or they say, “Come back. We have found something.” If we look at how physicians today diagnose, namely through an image of our anatomy (x-ray, ultrasound, etc.), we can say that a mammogram shows something at the stage of a detectable lump. The node must be there and of a specific size for a person to see it at all.
Thermography, however, looks at the physical processes and the physiology of the body. With thermography, we are able to see the body’s reaction to what is happening right now. And so with thermography, we can look at a phase that precedes serious breast problems. Which does not say that these problems will necessarily grow to become cancer.
Naturally, it is up to you to decide which action to take. Is a walk in the forest or alongside the sea enough, or do you need to bring in some extra help from a healthcare provider?
So too, bear in mind that with a “High Level of Concern” thermogram, you will always be forwarded to your GP.
