Bilateral Breast Exam and Ultrasound

He performs bilateral breast exams and ultrasounds and does not require a prior mammogram! (His office can also bill your insurance; please inquire about out-of-pocket fees) Please note: Dr. Armstrong is a conventional Western physician who recommends traditional breast screenings to his patients – however, he is the only source we have found for ultrasounds. He does not provide electronic images of the Ultrasound, however, he interprets the ultrasound while you're there, and gives you a written report and explanation.
Please note, all professionals on this list are familiar with Thermography, how to read the reports and the significance of heat imbalances in the breast tissue. Each practitioner treats conditions in their own way, and The Thermography Center of Sonoma County does not promote any specific treatment or action as all treatment decisions are the sole responsibility of the client and Health Professional they have chosen.
Time and time again we see clients who drink coffee on a regular basis have "hot spots" and high risk scans that are hard to shift. We encourage women to avoid both regular and decaf coffee products as much as possible. Finding a good coffee replacement can be very difficult but we feel Teeccino to be such a great go-to! Naturally energizing, alkalizing and so close to that rich coffee taste people love. Comes in ready to use tea bags or ready to brew grounds, like coffee!

Recent Studies show that what we are putting on our armpits could be seeping into our lymph system and into our breast tissue! Finding a non-toxic/natural deodorant that actually WORKS is both vitally important and very rare. We LOVE Primal Pit Paste and get rave reviews from clients who try it as well! The 6 pack sampler for $20 is a great way to try them out, give away to friends and family to try or just to find your favorites!

We have seen amazing improvements with client scans who try a more alkaline diet. This is our favorite, most easy to use pH testing tape. Test your urine FIRST thing in the morning, right after you wake up, BEFORE you eat or drink anything...to find your accurate baseline pH. Then adjust you food and beverage intake for the day to reach the ideal 7.4 pH range. Hold your pH as that ideal range for at least 1-3 months.
Here is our favorite pH Testing Paper...
If you want a good book on the pH lifestyle, Amazon has those as well...
We have learned from many sources over the years, how terrible underwire bras can be for our lymphatic flow and breast health...but we hear time and time again how hard it is for clients to find both attractive and supportive wire free bras. We have had great success with the JC Penny bra department and hope you do as well. We encourage you to explore wire free bras and hope that you pass the importance of them to all the women in your life.
This link has over 170 NON-WIRE Bras...
The number ONE health tip that we see improve our clients scans is SELF-CARE!
If you need a good book to read and some ideas how to slow down and make self-care number one, check out these book on the following link...
We caution women about the use of coffee - either decaf or caffeinated, due to the high level of acidity coffee has. However, we have recently found an alkalized decaf coffee found online at BioCoffee.com. Check it out - it tastes delicious, is naturally sweetened, and has wheat grass in it (which is what makes it alkalized!). YUM!
