Naturopathic Health Consultations with Dr. Connie Hernandez


Breast Health

In 2007 my husband and fellow naturopathic doctor, Marcel, and I journeyed to Bangkok, Thailand for screening health care at one of the most highly rated hospitals in the world. I had a mammogram and a breast ultrasound, both of which were completely clear.

A few months later at a medical conference in Las Vegas, Dr. Chi, a brilliant practitioner of Eastern Medicine, read my tongue and fingernails, informed me that I was at a very high risk for breast cancer and suggested a treatment protocol. I thought that was ridiculous, given my clear screening tests and my perceived state of hormonal balance.

Coincidentally, my office had purchased breast thermography equipment and, as I was being trained by Dr. Robert Kane in my office to do breast thermography, we discovered that one of my breasts had a very high risk rating for breast cancer. Using thermography, I was able to track the efficacy of my naturopathic treatment protocols over 3 month intervals of time and I am happy to report that my breast cancer risk rating in both breasts is now quite low.

Although breast thermography is not something that can be provided in absentia, it is of enormous importance in well woman care and breast cancer prevention. Breast thermography allows us to do a breast cancer risk analysis for each breast, to assess the effects of hormones on the breasts, and to track the efficacy of treatment protocols in addressing conditions of the breast and preventing breast cancer.

It is important to note here that neither mammograms nor breast thermography can diagnose breast cancer. The only diagnostic for breast cancer is breast biopsy.
