Introducing a Safe and Pain-Free Way to Monitor Breast Health and Other Conditions Safely and Effectively. We are excited to offer the most advanced breast thermography imaging available. Thermography measures the heat that radiates from your body and is completely safe. There is no radiation exposure; rather, it is similar to a camera taking a picture of your body. Thermography is a non-invasive clinical imaging procedure that can detect and monitor breast disease and other conditions by showing the abnormal temperature variations present in the body.
I chose a rating of 10 because I feel as though we have an action plan to follow based upon the bloodwork results and the Zyto analysis. We want to get to the root cause of what's going on and now we have some direction to make that happen. Dr Trejo is kind, attentive and very knowledgeable.
Marybel discovered things wrong with me that needs to be corrected for a very long time. I've been to several doctors that didn't take the time to help me heal. She's very caring, thoughtful and definitely an asset to my health and wellbeing.
Maribel was so kind! Actually the whole staff was! Maribel was super knowledgeable and helpful. I felt confident about my health after leaving there. Like I have a partner who will help me navigate these somewhat scary waters. Super encouraging!
Jennifer has helped my family more than words can say and I am very grateful for her and for the staff at Abundant Life! May the Lord guide and direct your lives ladies! Go in His wisdom and strength!!
We love Jennifer! My son and I go to see her and every time we go is like visiting a dear friend that looks out for you. Gives the best care and the best advices. Not only she works on our physical health but also on our spiritual health!
Ramona is an expert at her work. Knows the system, knows the body, knows the colon! And just as important, she knows YOU, the client, as she takes the time to get to know you. Not just on one visit, but every visit she takes it to a personal level. Why? Because she CARES. Thank you Ramona.
Abundant Life has improved my quality of life and is very affordable compared to many alternative medical clinics. Thank you!
Because I am seeing results of my body healing for the first time in a decade. Everyone there actually cares about my health and well being.
Maribel was so thorough and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable with her almost immediately. It was refreshing to have a medical person really listen and try to get to the bottom (root cause) of a health issue. I was also impressed by the technology used (zyto scan). Very friendly staff...thank you all!
Abundant Life uses functional medicine as well as the body’s capability with support to heal itself. God created us in His image and designed our bodies to do just that. All of the practitioners are knowledgeable, professional and genuinely interested in helping us heal. The best part is that it is natural medicine. I highly recommend Abundant Life Wellness to anyone truly interested in healing and staying healthy.
Maribel is so kind and knowledgeable. She makes me feel at ease where I can talk with her about anything. I like how she starts with a few things at a time instead of overwhelming you. I love how the supplements are in stock and such a large supply.
Wonderful bunch of ladies! Highlight of my day coming and being pampered. Bottom line…..because I get help naturally with my health issues. I thank our God for leading me to Abundant Life staff. I am so blessed.
Breast Thermography is a technique used extensively in other countries as a first-line screening procedure to assess breast health. This reliable technology exists here in the USA but there is a limited awareness and insufficient education that has resulted in its being underused in clinical practice.
All women aged 25 and older can benefit from infrared thermography. Below are additional specific categories of women who can benefit.
A thermography report with a color copy of the thermography results are sent to the patient and/or the patient’s health care provider. The international standardized grading system used in the report is called the Marseilles System of Classification developed by the Pasteur Institute in Marseilles, France. This scale provides strict criteria for rating breast thermography scans. The scans are reported on a scale of TH-1 to TH-5.
TH-1: normal tissue
TH-2: some changes in tissue i.e. fibrocystic, but normal response to cold challenge
TH-3: suspicious tissue activity with areas not responding to the cold challenge and maintaining higher heat areas
TH-4: abnormal tissue activity with areas not responding to the cold challenge and maintaining higher heat areas
TH-5: severely abnormal tissue activity with areas not responding to the cold challenge and maintaining higher heat areas.
Level TH-1 provides reassurance that the tissue activity is normal and that the appropriate follow-up is screening by thermography in one year.
Level TH-2 indicates that tissue did respond normally to the cold challenge and tissue health can be improved through preventive therapies.
Level TH-3 indicates that close monitoring through ultrasound and professional examination are advised and preventive therapies are needed.
Levels TH-4 and TH-5 require immediate referral for ultrasound exam on the areas specifically located by the breast thermography along with professional examination and other screening methods as indicated and appropriate preventive therapies.
Why Haven’t I Heard of Thermography?
When breast thermography (a.k.a. infrared mammography) was first explored, thermographic abnormalities in younger women were detected many times but mammograms did not detect any tumors. These results were considered “false positives,” and placed suspicion on thermography. Years later, in recall studies, 35% of these women had developed breast cancer. In addition, 41% of the women diagnosed with benign breast disease (such as fibrocystic breast) also developed breast cancer, thus validating its early warning role.
More than 800 peer-reviewed studies exist on breast thermography, involving more than 250,000 study participants describing its usefulness. The number of women in the studies range from 37,000 to 118,000, and some women were followed for up to 12 years. An evaluation of these studies revealed that breast thermography has an average sensitivity and specificity of 90% for detecting early changes in the breast that can possibly lead to cancer.
Breast thermography is able to show the early stages of a breast cancer forming which allows for prevention via lifestyle, hormone balancing and other changes as necessary. Unfortunately, many doctors are still unaware of the importance and accuracy of this technology as a preventative tool. Some doctors know how to respond when there is undeniable cancer but not where prevention is needed such as lifestyle and nutrition to avoid this disease. (REF: Guthrie, M, Thermobiological assessment of benign and malignant breast disease, Ann J. Obstet Gynecol 147:461, 1983)
“Digital infrared imaging, is based upon the principle that chemical and blood vessel activity in both precancerous and the area surrounding a developing breast cancer is almost always higher than in normal tissues. This activity frequently results in an increase in regional surface temperature of the breast. Infrared mammography uses ultra-sensitive infrared cameras and sophisticated computers to detect, analyze and produce high resolution images of these temperature variations, which may be among the earliest signs of breast cancer.”

Infrared Mammography has the ability to identify the earliest signs of cancer formation, up to 10 years before other imaging modality can identify it.
