Six years ago I remember reading about someone who had thermography breast scans instead of mammograms.
I have occasionally googled it, looking for where I can have thermography and my Chiropractor gave me the no. for medscans.co.uk and I spoke to Rosa who owns the company with her husband. They are based in Liverpool but run satelite clinics, the nearest for me (Warwick) was Shrewsbury. I wanted my daughter (23) to have a thermographic breast scan which would have been difficult for us both to get to.
Rosa came to my house on Monday. Six of us had a scan, we had completed a health questionnaires beforehand.
I asked friends if they wanted to come along but had no response. then I asked the members of my Thyroid UK support group and some came along.
A couple of us had a full body scan, we will have a phone conversation with Rosa on the findings soon.
This is just my opinion ..... I believe that women are brainwashed into thinking that mammograms are safe and detect tumours early. This is not early detection. It takes several years for a tumour to form. When having a mammogram you receive around the same amount of radiation as you would with 40 chest X-Ray's! How can this be safe. Then many women undergo gruelling so called treatment for something that wasn't even there!
The film which medscans.co.uk have made is excellent, a real eye opener and if only it was shown on television for more women to be aware of how harmful mammograms are!
There are also some YouTube clips of Rosa and Phil Hughes speaking which are worth watching.
Switzerland have phased out mammography, I hope the UK will soon do this too.
I recently had a form from the NHS asking me to sign to say that I no longer want mammograms, I am going to write to them to say "why should I sign out of something that I have never signed into?"
Hypothyroidism battles were just the start for me, it has opened my eyes to just how health matters are driven by big Pharma and how doctors have to do as they are told. I do hope the whole truth comes out soon!
