Top Five Reasons to Love Breast Thermography

Posted on 01 May 2017 by Douglas Merrow

Radiant Body Thermography, located in northwest Portland, suggests five reasons to love breast thermography.

  1. Detects Inflammatory Breast Cancer, a fast-growing, lethal cancer possessing a heat signature not seen with mammography.
  2. No compression! Thermography scans are performed with a “no contact” camera that detects detailed heat patterns. Mammography uses 44 pounds of pressure; it takes only 22 pounds of pressure to burst the capsule of a tumor.
  3. No radiation! Thermography is safe, capturing the heat the body emits with a lens; nothing is “beamed” into the body. Radiant Body Thermography learned in 2005, in the seventh Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation report by the National Academies of Science that even low levels of non-ionizing radiation (used in mammograms) are “known human carcinogens” with “no known safe levels.”
  4. Extra information. Imbalances such as rapid cell growth, thyroid dysfunction and estrogen dominance have unique “signatures” that can be detectable in a breast scan.
  5. An ally in avoiding unnecessary biopsies and over-treatment. Thermography offers a safe, non-invasive procedure that is a valuable adjunct in determining whether a lesion is benign (statistically “cool”) or malignant (statistically “hot”). By ignoring or excluding information about a lesion’s “thermal signature”, aggressive treatment is more easily justified and employed by a profit-driven medical system.
    “Love your lumps and know their thermal signatures before justifying aggressive, invasive testing and treatment,” suggests Candace Parmer, certified clinical thermographer in Portland’s Pearl District. She adds, “Most lumps I scan have cool signatures.”

Locally Sourced and Produced Raw Diet for Dogs

Posted on 01 May 2017 by Douglas Merrow

We all know that eating wholesome food is healthy for humans—but what about other animals?
To answer this question, renowned food blogger Rodney Habib visited Finnish scientists who were conducting a study on more than 8,000 dogs to determine the effects of a raw diet. The scientists discovered that both methionine and homocysteine (acids found in dog kibble) are linked to cancer in dogs. During the study, they found that when a dog was kibble-fed but switched to an all-raw diet, the levels of both dangerous acids were lowered. Additionally, the researchers saw health improvements when as little as 20 percent of a raw fresh diet was added to a regular diet.
Nutritional specialist Dr. Cheryl Morris formulated the unique balanced Meat & Bones raw blend that any dog will love eating and dog owners will love feeding, with confidence. Meat & Bones suggests trying their four-pound package first, if in doubt. Meat & Bones never uses synthetics in their food and they share all ingredients with consumers. Everything is locally sourced and produced in Portland.

Celestial Seeds Offers New Copper Product

Posted on 01 May 2017 by Douglas Merrow


The folks at CBD LOVE are at it again with a new product, Copper LOVE. Many people may not be aware of the benefits of colloids, or may have only heard about Colloidal Silver, which has been widely available. According to Celestial Seeds cofounder Thom, while colloidal silver has antibiotic and antiseptic properties, colloidal copper has many beneficial functions most people have never explored.
Dr. Werner Hangarter, a German physian, first noticed in 1939 that copper miners wouldn’t get arthritis until they retired. Working at the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center in 1973, Dr. L.M. Klevay reported he had found a relationship between copper and cholesterol and also theorized that copper deficiency was a contributing factor in coronary heart disease. Famed psychic Edgar Cayce said that copper balances the emotions and aligns the mental state with a spiritual nature. More information is available at
