While researching options for her own pro-active health, Dr. Smith became interested in Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI) or Thermography.
Further study lead her to the realization that DITI is an amazing and underutilized screening tool that could help people detect very early changes in their physiology and be used to track the efficacy of their treatment choices.
In 2006, Dr. Smith decided that educating the public about Thermography and offering a superior service was where all the roads she had traveled led to. She went to North Carolina to receive her training on the campus of Duke Medical Center through the auspices of the American College of Clinical Thermography.

Dr. Smith became interested in mind/body therapies during the early years of her practice, doing advanced training in several techniques, and incorporating them her practice.
In 2013, she changed the focus of the integrative chiropractic practice to specialize in Thermography and Wellness coaching.
Hillary was born in Los Angeles and received her education locally.

IN THIS EPISODE:
What have you heard about breast thermography? Probably not enough. It’s one of the things I’m most excited about when it comes to the prevention of the terrible disease of breast cancer simply because it enables you to diagnose a potential problem years before other methods will be able to detect an issue, and by then it could already be too late.
Breast thermography is a non-invasive technique that does NOT bombard your body with any kind of harmful radiation or chemical to do its work. It is a high resolution camera that detects the heat signature of your body’s parts and organs and highly trained technicians are able to read the picture to determine if you have any foreign masses growing in your body.
With the existence of breast thermography I don’t see any reason women should continue having mammograms done. Not only are they unneeded, they are also being show more and more to actually cause harm to women while they are doing the work of diagnosing. What kind of sense is that? I can’t see any which is why I am suggesting thermography to all my clients.
Or maybe you didn’t realize that. Mammograms are the process of running radiation through the breast in order to take a “picture” what what exists in the breast in terms of masses, cysts, etc. But the saddest part of the mammogram scheme is that the only thing proven to cause breast cancer is radiation. It’s silly. Women are encouraged to have regular mammograms which are very likely the very cause of the cancer they are trying to detect. It’s ridiculous.
I hope you take the time to listen to this conversation with Dr. Hillary Smith, my friend and licensed Thermologist. She’s got a load of great insights to share with you about how the practice of thermography could help you detect breast health problems long before they become problems. This one screening could do more to put you in charge of your health than any other medical procedure I know of.
