Detect the Earliest Signs of Breast Cancer with a Thermography Screening at HCA

When it comes to breast cancer, or any other type of cancer for that matter, early detection is key to successful treatment. Holistic Care Approach proudly offers Thermography screenings as a safe and effective method of catching breast anomalies at their very earliest, without being exposed to more radiation than necessary.
To create a high-resolution map of your breast tissue, Thermography uses ultra-sensitive infrared cameras in conjunction with powerful computers to detect and analyze your body’s temperature variations. What we’re looking for are concentrations of blood vessels that don’t contract the way they’re supposed to when you’re cold, a natural response intended to keep vital organs warm. If abnormalities are found, there are a variety of interventions that can be taken and we’ll discuss them with you.
Did you know that men can be diagnosed with breast cancer as well? Thermography doesn’t just have to be for breast screenings either, we also offers waist up and full body readings, which can be used to glean insight on sources of pain or inflammation.
If you have any questions about Thermography, or to schedule an appointment, please feel free to Contact Us! As a special offer for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, new patients will receive $25 Off their initial Thermography screening, and 10% Off the featured Breast Health Products listed below!

Breast Health Supplements at Holistic Care Approach
Holistic Care Approach is proud to offer the following breast health supplements to women in West Michigan. These compounds and natural hormones have been hand-selected because of their role in actively preventing cancer cell growth, or rallying your body’s defences to do the same. Take a look at some of their properties below, and enjoy 10% off all of them this month when you schedule a Thermography appointment with us!
  • DIM (Diindolylmethane): DIM has been shown in scientific studies to reduce the risk of breast, cervical and other estrogen-driven cancers by helping the body produce a better balance of the “good estrogen.”
  • Vitamin D3: Some studies have suggested that the active metabolite of vitamin D, known as calcitriol, may be anti-cancerous.
  • Iodine: The molecular effects of iodine as well as ongoing epidemiological evidence points to its possible role in the prevention of cancers through its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, pro differentiating, and proapoptotic effects.
  • Progesterone: Taking progesterone can prevent changes within the uteruses of women taking estrogen after menopause. It can also help treat menstrual periods that have stopped before menopause.
  • Melatonin: This hormone is produced within the human brain, and appears to suppress the growth of breast cancer tumors.
