#010: Breast Health Awareness with Dr. Ellie Campbell
In celebration of Breast Health Awareness Month this October, Dr. Kyrin and Dr. Ellie discuss the facts regarding the use of thermography to detect pre-cancer changes in the breast with this revolutionary modality.
Although mammography screening for detection of early breast cancer is still the standard of care, it is fraught with difficulties that are detailed in this discussion.
Thermography has been used for over three decades to detect physiologic changes that lead to breast cancers and has been proven to allow superior detection of the functional changes that predate the development of breast cancer.
Dr. Ellie Campbell is a leader in educating physicians and laypeople regarding the benefits of thermography, early breast cancer change detection and reversal.
She is a pioneer in holistic and integrative healthcare in the greater Atlanta area and educates clinicians nationwide. She is double-board certified in Family Medicine and Integrative Functional Medicine.
