A reliable substitute for mammography? Part 1
April 23, 2019
Thermography, a controversial imaging technique, is the subject of today’s interview with Dr. Kristine Blanche, owner and operator the Integrative Healing Center of Long Island and New York City. What is thermography? In view of the limitations of mammograms, and women’s concerns about radiation exposure, is breast thermography an adequate and reliable substitute for mammography?

What roles for diet, exercise, supplements, stress reduction? What are xenoestrogens, and how can women minimize their exposure? Click HERE for part 2.
