“The Truth About Cancer” is a “docu-series” of videos about cancer and is comprised of interviews with doctors who talk about different types of treatments for cancer and how to prevent it. Albuquerque’s Dr. Sunil Pai is one of the interviewees.
Many of my patients told me about the video series and its reference to thermography. The videos are produced by Ty M. Bollinger, a cancer researcher. I found this brief video with Dr. Ben Johnson M.D, NMD, DO:
In it, Ty asks him a question about thermography; but the answer covers a general overview of how, many alternative or integrative medicine doctors view conventional cancer diagnostics and treatments.
After eighteen (18) years of doing thermography and seeing numerous cancer patients in all stages of disease, I am supportive of any treatment protocol a person chooses to follow. A cancer diagnosis is a very personal journey and although friends, family and physicians want to help and have advice; it is ultimately the patient’s decision. The best we can offer is support for whatever treatment path they choose, without overwhelming them. I believe from experience that we inherently “know” what is best for us and that may include natural cancer treatments or chemotherapy and radiation.
I have focused my practice on thermography because it is totally non-invasive. Images are produced from the heat given off by the body. Breast thermography consists of six (6) images, including the base of the neck, underarms and of course, the chest. Full-body thermography consists of 25 to 30 images that encompass the face, neck, chest, abdomen, back and limbs.
Thermographic images are produced without cancer causing radiation and without touching the body. The areas of heat are indicative of increased circulation or inflammation. Remember that inflammation precedes almost all disease. Cooler areas are often indicative of poor circulation or radiculopathy (nerve irritation).
