Breast Cancer Prevention: Tammy Kohlschmidt, RDH, CCT, CBP. on a screening tool called Thermography - The WellBe Podcast with Adrienne Nolan-Smith (getwellbe) - The WellBe Podcast (getwellbe)
Since it's cancer prevention month, let's talk about this awful disease. Usually, people go to see a doctor because they’re experiencing some symptom that they want to treat. According to Tammy Kohlschmidt, a certified clinical thermographer, that’s entirely the wrong approach. As she explained to WellBe, thermography offers a way to catch dysfunction before it becomes symptomatic, helping people to prevent rather than treat disease — which is key to maintaining your health.
Thermography, also known as digital infrared thermal imaging, is a screening method that uses camera images to measure your body temperature and blood flow, looking for patterns and variations that can screen for dysfunction and precursors to disease.
Because of the way the screening works, it’s also able to detect abnormalities and dysfunction before other tests. Kohlschmidt explains that thermography can pick up cancer cells when they’re about the size of a grain of rice, or around two years old, whereas a mammogram won’t pick it up for eight years.
Listen to the episode to learn more about how thermography helps to detect what is really going in your body, how it differs from mammograms and ultrasounds, where to find a clinical thermographer, what to expect at your appointment and why this test isn't standard in conventional medicine.
