Donna Tomey, Thermographer
Due to a diagnosis of breast cancer early 2006, Donna understands first-hand the importance of prevention, not treatment after-the-fact. She suffered with cancer and endured a unilateral mastectomy, additional surgeries, chemotherapy and reconstructive surgery. As a result, she endeavored to find a better way to monitor breast health, and she found it - with thermography, and founded her own thermography clinic in December, 2007.
Six weeks after her unilateral mastectomy, Donna had a breast thermogram, and there were already significant vascularities developing in her left breast...and she discovered that she was on her way to getting cancer in that breast. This was not revealed with a mammogram, since mammography is a structural test, a test of anatomy, and it detects once you already HAVE cancer. Quite simply, thermography detected the abnormal vascular development, which alerted her early enough, without waiting until the cancer was large enough to be detected with a mammogram, or any other imaging method.
Seeking the help of a nutritionist, and with a simple blood test, Donna was advised that her estrogen was metabolizing in such a way as to promote cancer growth. With a strict diet, the right natural supplements and most critically, balancing her hormones, Donna was able to actually reverse the abnormal vascularity and to this day it remains stable, with no risk of breast cancer. Donna owes her life to thermography and hormone balancing.
Donna has lectured and educated women and men, using her own images to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt, that thermography, along with nutrition and hormone balancing, saved her life. Now it may save yours.
Though her primary focus is for the prevention of breast cancer, Donna also conducts full or partial-body scanning, which is an excellent screening tool that gives you an “inside look” of what’s going on inside your body before a symptom even presents itself.
