Many of us are so busy with our every day lives that we don’t take time for ourselves. But taking the time every day to care for your body and mind will make you feel good about yourself and will expand into every part of your life.
Through my blog, I have given you numerous little and easy things you can implement into your life to improve your health and well-being.
-Watching out for Inflammation
-And Thermography exams
We only have one body and need to treat it right.
I want to re-emphasize the importance of Thermography in self-care.
It has been drilled in many of our heads by countless doctors that every woman should get a mammogram every year after they turn 40. What these doctors are not telling you is that mammograms are not as helpful or safe as you might think.
Mammograms expose you to approximately 1,000 times the amount of radiation you’d get in a chest X-ray. This radiation is stored in your cells and accumulates to significant levels over time if you’re getting the annual mammogram. Also, during a mammogram your breast are being compressed. This can damage breast tissue and may even open cancerous tumors.
The American College of Physicians, the largest medical specialty group, recently questioned the benefit of mammograms. They stated that the risks might outweigh the benefits.
These are pretty amazing and alarming findings.
I encourage you to also do your own research. Find out your options and what is best for you health. We have the power of choice.
Love your body and treat it well!
