Integrated Health Conference: Thermal Imaging: UPDATE March 27th!

Thanks to Kid Against Chemo on YouTube, I found a video that explains how thermal imaging works.

Find out more information in this recent post in GreenMedInfo.

*********************************************

Last year my primary health doctor reminded me that it was time for my mammogram. I’m sure she thinks I am a pain in her ass because I usually “shoot down” her ideas and suggestions — like the day she told me I needed to take Fosomax the rest of my life and I told her “no.”

Then we argued about getting a mammogram for several minutes, until I finally agreed. She added, “You will need one every year.” I didn’t say anything, knowing that she would be lucky to get me to do it every five years.

In 2011 I had “more radiation than any other patient,” according to my radiologist. He added that he was surprised I even finished the treatments. Now that’s reassuring!

Since then, I decided to limit my exposure to toxic treatments and tests and find alternative, less invasive ways to monitor my health. Someone told me about thermal imaging a couple days before my mammogram appointment, but I didn’t have time to research it. I went through the drill, had my boobs mashed until I thought they would pop, had the imaging and waited for the results, which only took a few minutes.

In comes a 100 year old doctor with a file and says everything looked good but my breasts are dense, so it would be better to get a breast MRI in the future, in order to get a better picture. That’s when I asked about thermal imaging. His face contorted and he snarled, “That’s a bunch of garbage! There is no scientific evidence showing it works! You don’t need that!”

I felt my blood pressure going up, but I kept my cool. He’s lucky I didn’t tell him what I was thinking. It would have included a few f-bombs.

I stood up and said, “Thank you,” and left, knowing that I would never go back there.

At the Integrated Health Conference, a chiropractor had a thermal imaging camera in his booth. He was offering one free image and I stood in line to get one. He was only taking pictures of our faces that day, but offered breast imaging at his office, if we wanted to make an appointment.

What I liked about this man and the other vendors at the show was, they offered information about their products and services and there was no hard sell. I don’t like anyone pressuring me into buying anything so their attitude was a nice change.

This is my thermal image. The first thing the doctor asked was, “Do you have sinus problems?”

I said, “Yes.”

The red area shows inflammation and mine was in the sinus cavities and speaking of cavities, he said I might have a couple (also showing red in my lower jaw).

I did not make an appointment to get my breasts imaged since I just had that mammogram less than a year ago, but I took his brochure in case I want to later. There is debate about the efficacy of breast thermal imaging compared to mammograms, but there’s a debate about everything these days! Vaccinate. Don’t vaccinate. Sugar is good. Sugar is bad. It just depends on who is paying for the study.

I don’t know what I’ll decide when the time comes, but the doctor was right about my sinuses. If you want to learn more about it, click here.

Be well!

The 5 Why’s of Cancer : Matt Kreinheder D.C.

Matt Kreinheder D.C. (doctor of Chiropractic) spoke at the Integrated Health Conference but I did not get to see him. The speakers were videotaped but they have to be edited, so I don’t know when they will be available to watch online. You have to become a member to watch them though. If you want information about joining click here. I joined last year and the information they send me is quite helpful.

I did find a video that Dr. Kreinheder made a few months ago that you might find interesting. He discusses how and why we get sick in the first place. Let me know what you think in the comment section.

Be well,

Double Helix Water

When I arrived at the conference, the woman who checked my pass at the entrance, told me to stop at the booth with the “Wellness” sign first. I decided on the way to the conference to be open to whatever came my way, so I followed here advice.

They were selling something called Double Helix Water,  raw greens powder and protein powders. I never heard of Double Helix Water but since I told myself to be open to whatever came my way, I sat down to learn more… and got tested by a VitalScan.

To start, the tech who would be doing the scan sprayed my wrists with water and put two large clamps on both my wrists. I was told to sit still while the computer gathered information about my heart rate, my aura, chakras, meridians and other vitals. I admit I thought it sounded a bit hocus pocus when I saw chakra and aura on the list… but I was open to whatever came my way. I know I am body/mind and spirit so it shouldn’t be weird that a machine can detect which of those areas need improvement. I just don’t think I’ll see my doctors using it anytime soon.

If you want to see what the VitalScan is, click here.

The conclusion was: My Vata is too high (I actually knew that from taking an Ayurvedic dosha test several months ago).

I found a good explanation about what adrenal glands do on the Internet:

The adrenal glands are small glands located on top of each kidney. They produce hormones that you can’t live without, including sex hormones and cortisol. Cortisol helps you respond to stress and has many other important functions. With adrenal gland disorders, your glands make too much or not enough hormones.

My adrenals were running a little too high and making too much cortisol. Could that be why I get cranky sometimes? So far, the machine had me pegged. The tech asked me a few more questions about my health and I told him that I was low on B12. My doctor had just “reloaded” me with weekly B12 shots a few weeks earlier. He suggested I buy their plant based protein powder to add to my smoothies.

Then we talked about their Double Helix Water. It is too complicated for me to explain how the water works so I found a video that explains it.

The man being interviewed is Alpha Lo, a physicist who studied “water crystals” and wrote a scientific paper about it.

Since I am not good at science or physics I don’t understand how Double Helix water works. I don’t understand how acupuncture works either, but I know it works for me and that’s all I really care about. There are skeptics who say the whole idea is crap, but there are also skeptics about acupuncture….so I bought a bottle of the water and a protein powder.

I will keep you posted if I feel any different.  My next blood work is in two months so I will be curious to see the results.

Be well and stay open to whatever comes your way,
