A New Choice in Breast Health

BREAST HEALTH

1 in 8 women develop Breast Cancer, and most breast tumors have been growing slowly for up to 20 years before they are found by typical diagnostic techniques, including physical exam or mammogram.

Detecting Breast Cancer earlier gives you a life saving head start on the road to a cure and fortunately, the five-year survival rates for women whose Breast Cancer is detected in its early stages approaches 100%.

NEW CHOICE

Your new choice for early breast screening and detection is Infrared Thermology. Thermology identifies functional changes in the breast up to 8 years before the invasive, ionizing radiation of mammography can - no matter your age or circumstances. This early detection is especially vital for those 20-50 years of age: those currently considered at greatest risk due to misinformation.

All women, and especially those with dense or fibrocystic breasts, small or large breasts, breast reductions or implants, women who are pregnant or lactating, women who have undergone lumpectomies or mastectomies, and pre- or post- menopausal women now have a choice!

MEDICAL SCIENCE

Infrared Thermography is supported by more than 800 peer-reviewed studies encompassing more than 300,000 participants. Unlike mammography, there is no pain, no ionizing radiation exposure, no contact - no breast compression, and it is non-invasive - no dyes or contrast mediums are used.

John W. Gofman, MD, PhD, an authority on health effects of ionizing radiation, estimates that 75% of Breast Cancer could be prevented by avoiding or minimizing exposure to the ionizing radiation from mammography, x-rays and other medical sources.

This safe, non-toxic, highly accurate and inexpensive form of diagnostic imaging used by progressive physicians in the US and Europe since 1962 is based on heat emissions naturally occurring in the body. As the body's cells go through their energy conversion process (metabolism), they emit heat. When there is uncontrolled growth, as in a cancer or early increase in blood vessels in a cancerous area, even more heat is emitted. Thermography is able to register these heat emissions and display them in detail on a computer.

EASE

Standing in front of a Thermography camera, a set of digital computerized pictures are taken. These pictures show the body's internal heat patterns. the pictures can then be reviewed using a four-part analytic method and your results are sent directly to your physician at Full Spectrum Family Medicine.

Thermography is easy, offers peace of mind, and is vital for maintaining optimal breast health. It is the newest, safest and most accurate choice of early detection. Thermography complements self-breast exam and other appropriate follow-up tests recommended by your physician such as mammography, MRI and ultrasound.

An Artist's Passion

by Rosemarie Turke

My interest in the visual arts has always been a prominent influence throughout my life. I love to explore the many art forms and have done so throughout the various stages of my life. In childhood, in war torn Germany, I found solace through draw-ing. In adulthood, as a parent interacting with my children. Later, my artistic creativity continued as I found ways to integrate art through teaching young children as a Montessori directress.

It was not until I retired that I could devote more time and energy into my passion. There I could find that quiet peaceful place of contentment within. This is what I strive to convey through my renderings. Whether I am painting a child, landscape or still life, I am especially attracted to the simplicity and the "silence" in the Chinese brush painting technique, where the concept of "less is more" is observed.

When selecting a media, it is the subject that dictates the type of media best suited to use. It may be watercolor, pastel, oils or perhaps even a collage that best reflects my intentions for that particular art form. My hope is that the viewer will also share similar emotions, discovering the "joie de vivre" when viewing my artistic expressions.

To purchase Rosemarie's art, please inquire at Reception. (All proceeds go directly to the artist.)
