It has been almost 2 months with our new thermography camera and it has been great! The pictures are so clear and the new turnaround time has been about 5-7 working days. The new style of reports is a great improvement as well. Dr. Kane puts a lot of what he says in a way that everyone can comprehend. He still uses the medical terminology, but he also says things that you and I can understand without using a medical dictionary. Another improvement in the reports is the hormonal grade that is given. What this does is it gives you an idea about the amount of Estrogen that he detects in your breast. It’s a breast appraisal of the amount of Estrogen and the effects that it is having on your breast. This rating alone should not be your sole basis to tell if you are or are not Estrogen dominate, the more accurate way to tell is to do the hormone panel.

All scans are rated from a TH-1 to a TH-5. TH-1 being the best and TH-5 being the worse. We have done clinical studies that show the effects of certain supplements on the breast and how they can reverse the unhealthy changes in your breast. Dr. Lieberman and our nutritionist sat down and put them in a special formula called the Women’s Breast Health Formula. This formula is made up of many different supplements and vitamins. It has been proven to reverse changes in the breast in as little as 6 months. Some women, depending on the severity and her body have taken a year or even a little longer. However, it works and its better than the alternative.

The Women’s Breast Health Formula is just one of the many treatment options that we can offer you. So for all of our current and former thermography patients, come in and see the new camera for yourself. I know you will like it as much as I do. And for all the ladies out there who have never had a thermography, come in and check it out. Please be confident in knowing that this first step you take by getting a thermogram is one of the best steps you can take for your health.

As many of our readers have seen, the Center upgraded the thermography equipment in April of this year.  The new equipment allows for an even more sensitive reading of the scans.�

Because the Center received such an overwhelming response from the special offer for the last several weeks, we have decided to offer another special for anyone who missed out.  From now until September 6th any NEW or REPEAT thermograms will be priced at $165.  This is a wonderful discount from the normal price of $275.

A few reminders:

1-      Remember that you do not have to be a current patient of Dr. Lieberman or the Center to receive a thermography.

2-      There are very strict instructions that patients must adhere to prior to receiving a scan.  They range from items such as no prolonged sun exposure (no sunburn) to the chest or breasts for 5 days prior to the procedure (including no tanning beds) to no bathing within 1 hour of the exam.  Note: A complete list of instructions is provided to those who schedule.

3-      Thermography involves no radiation or pain and is totally non-invasive, requiring no contact with the body.

4-      Abnormalities caught early enough can often be reversed through simple nutritional therapies.

5-      For anyone who is considering repeating a thermogram with this new equipment, they should know that the method of evaluation is the same.  The only change is the degree of sensitivity and that is for the better.

There is no reason why any woman should not take proper precaution in preventing Breast cancer.  Your health and your life are very dear.

I have noticed that many of the patients who come in for their first thermography scan are not sure what to expect or what is going to happen. I want to give some clarity on the whole process that you have to go through.

There are things that you can and cannot do prior to getting your scan. First, you can have no prolonged sun exposure for 24 hours prior to the scan. This is for a good reason. If your skin is hot or warm from being out in the sun, it can cause inaccurate results on your scan. Also, you cannot shave under your arms 4 hours prior to your appointment time. This is pressure and it can cause changes in your breast.
When you get here, I will walk you back to our thermography room. I will ask you to disrobe from the waist up. You will have to sit in a chair, in a room that is 69 degrees Fahrenheit, for 15 minutes with your arms up so that the area between your arms and your body may cool. I know this sounds like torture, but it’s really not that bad. You will be cold, but it’s only for a brief period of time. After the 15 minutes, I will come back into the room and get you in place while I adjust the thermography camera. I will get a total of 5 pictures at first. I will then have you put your hands in ice cold water for 60 seconds. Again, I know that sounds like torture but it’s over before you know it! At the end of the 60 seconds, I will take 3 more pictures of you. The purpose of this is to look at the vascular patterns in your breast; to see if they constrict like they should when provoked. After the last 3 pictures, we are done.

The longest part of the whole process is having to cool to the room temperature. The actual screening only takes 5 minutes! All of my patients tell me that the process is never as bad as they anticipated. Many patients have expressed how much happier they are with this process than with mammography. No pain, just cold. If you have any further questions about what to expect, just give us a call and I will be more than glad to answer any questions you may have.

Breast thermography is the choice for any woman, regardless of age or breast size, who desires a painless and radiation-free procedure to screen for breast cancer. The American Cancer Society says women are at risk for breast cancer if they:

• Began menstruating before age 12
• Have not borne children
• Bore their first child after age 30
• Stopped menstruating after age 50
• Have personal history or family history of breast cancer
• Have personal history of radiation exposure to the chest
• Are currently taking or have recently taken hormone replacement therapy for longer than 5 years
• Are obese
We recommend that women having one or more risk factors have an annual breast thermogram and younger, premenopausal women have a baseline breast health thermogram. You can come have a scan done no matter what age you are. It’s perfectly healthy with no side effects. So don’t be scared and don’t worry. Just remember the most is important part is taking the first step.

If you have a rating on your scan of TH4 or TH5, this means your chances of developing or maybe having breast cancer are higher than they should be. I know it sounds scary but the one thing I ask of all my patients is NOT to panic.

With our new camera, the sensitivity is so much higher now than it used to be. Please always keep in mind; a scan can detect changes in your breast 10 years before a mammogram can. For the majority of cases, we can help reverse those poor ratings. We do offer multiple treatment plans. We can send you for an ultrasound or a MRI if that is how you wish to proceed after your results come back. We can also start treating with supplements that have been proven time and time again to turn things around. In some women those changes can happen in 6-8 weeks, as others may take a year to see changes. But we have the studies to show it works.

So next time you come in for a scan, if your results come back high, just remember don’t panic. We can get you turned around and on your way back to good health.

“Normal (non-cancerous) tissue has a blood supply that is under the control of the autonomic nervous system. The ANS can either increase or decrease blood flow to cells. Abnormal tissue, on the other hand, ensures its own survival by secreting chemicals that override these ANS regulations, thereby ensuring its own steady blood supply. Cancer can be thought of as being “off the power grid” of the body.

When the hands are placed in cold water during the breast screening, an ANS reflex occurs in the breast. Generally speaking, this reflux causes the blood vessels in non-cancerous tissue to constrict, but does not result in constriction of blood vessels supplying blood to cancerous tissue. The resulting difference in blood flow can result in cancer showing up as “hot spots” on thermograms.

Scientific signs and criteria established by the American Academy of Thermology are used to interpret thermogram data. Breast Thermology does not diagnose breast cancer; rather it detects physiological changes in breast tissue that have been shown to correlate with the presence of cancer or per- cancerous states. Breast cancer is only diagnosed by pathological microscopic examination of breast tissue.”

This blog shares a document provided to us from Dr. Robert Kane, the physician who works with COEM to interpret Thermography scans.  He discusses in this document how to understand and interpret the different rating levels he provides on each report.  It gives a really thorough explaination of each rating that is very easy to understand.

Those of you who have not scheduled a Breast Thermography are encouraged to call us to schedule one as soon as you are available. Thermographies are painless, safe, and very quick. We offer a coupon through the office of $100 off for new and repeat Thermography appointments.

Understanding Your Thermal Breast Imaging Report

© Robert L. Kane, DC, DABCT, All Rights Reserved

Thermal imaging is a tool that is used to help assess risk for breast cancer. Unlike
screening examinations or diagnostic examinations, the findings can suggest risk for
currently having breast cancer or for developing it in the future. This information can be
used to help determine when additional testing or intervention designed to lower risk is
necessary. By watching for changes from examination to examination, Thermal Imaging
can also help monitor the effects of interventions to see if they are effective. This includes
things such as modifying one’s diet or lifestyle, and improving nutrition among others. It
does not directly detect or diagnose cancer but can help reach those goals. Thermal
imaging does not replace mammography or any other diagnostic or screening examination.

TH 1: Lowest Risk
Based upon temperature analysis, this rating suggests the lowest risk that breast cancer is
currently present or that it may develop in the future. This rating cannot guarantee that
the breasts are cancer free and should not delay any other breast examination
recommended by your doctor. When cancer is present, it tends to be growing less quickly
(less active) or has not produced enough inflammation or changes to the blood supply so
that it is visible on thermography.

TH 2: Low Risk
This is also a low risk thermal image. The increase in risk between TH1 and TH2 is
minimal. This rating is not a guarantee that breasts are cancer free and should not delay
any other breast examination recommended by your doctor. When cancer is present, it
tends to be growing less quickly (less active) or has not produced enough inflammation or
changes to the blood supply so that it is visible on thermography.

Follow Up Recommendations for TH 1 and TH 2:
Follow-up imaging for women over 30 years of age should be performed annually and, for
women 20 to 30 years of age, every 3 years. Imaging should be performed along with your
annual breast examination.

TH 3: Medium Risk
This rating suggests a medium risk that breast cancer is currently present or that it may
develop in the future. Follow-up thermal imaging and other breast examinations can help
clarify any significance to this rating. When cancer is present it may be more active and
growing slightly faster than those found in the lower TH risk categories. This rating can
also be caused by conditions such as normal variation in anatomy, some benign tumors,
lymphatic activity or congestion and low grade inflammation or infection. It is important to
determine the cause of the thermal findings and not prematurely conclude that cancer is

Follow Up Recommendations for TH 3:
3-6 month follow-up thermal imaging is recommended depending on your individual
situation. Additional imaging such as mammogram or ultrasound should be performed if it
has not taken place within the last year. Your doctor will recommend the best test for you.
If something is being watched on another examination such as a mammogram, you should
consult with your doctor to determine if any additional testing is necessary at this time.
Interventions intended to reduce risk should be introduced as a preventative measure.
TH 4: High Risk
This rating suggests a high risk that breast cancer is currently present or that it may
develop in the future. Since this rating can also be caused by inflammation, infection and
some fast growing benign tumors, it is important to determine the cause of the thermal
findings and not prematurely conclude that cancer is present. Other factors such as
lymphatic congestion and/or hormone imbalance can contribute to these findings and need
to be considered when evaluating their significance. Most women with TH4 ratings do not
have cancer at the time of the thermal imaging examination but do indicate high risk for
developing cancer in the future.

TH 5: Highest Risk
This is also a high risk thermal image. As with TH4, this rating can also be caused by
inflammation, infection and some fast growing benign tumors so it is important to
determine the cause of the thermal findings and not prematurely conclude that cancer is
present. Other factors such as lymphatic congestion and/or hormone imbalance can
contribute to these findings and need to be considered when evaluating their significance.
Most women with TH5 ratings do not have cancer at the time of the thermal imaging
examination but do indicate the highest risk for developing cancer in the future.

Follow up Recommendations for TH 4 and TH 5
It is strongly recommended that you consult with your physician and begin additional
imaging such as mammography, ultrasound, or any other appropriate test promptly to help
clarify the thermal findings. A biopsy may be recommended if this rating occurs in a breast
with a lump or other suspicious finding on another examination. Interventions intended to
reduce risk are strongly recommended as a preventative measure.
Follow-up thermal imaging should be performed at 3-month or at the discretion of the
Thermologist based upon the thermal findings and any intervention being performed.

A plus or minus sign is used to upgrade or downgrade the severity within a particular TH

Hormonal Grade

How Do You Determine the Effects of Estrogen on Your Level of Risk: The

Hormonal Grade:
Lifetime exposure to estrogen has been identified as a significant risk factor for the
development of cancer. The hormonal grade is a way to look at the effects of estrogen on
the breasts. When we measure the level of estrogen and progesterone in the blood, urine
or saliva we are looking at the hormonal balance in the whole body. The question remains,
what is the effect of these hormone levels on the breasts. Normal fatty tissue in the
breasts can actually produce estrogen and will be missed on blood testing and can
contribute to risk. Some women have estrogen receptors that are more sensitive or bind
estrogen more easily. They may even have low estrogen levels but their breasts are
actually being over stimulated by the estrogen they have. By looking at the hormonal
grade, we can put all of these factors into perspective.
It is important to recognize some additional factors that can affect the hormonal grade that
may or may not be the result of estrogen stimulation. Systemic inflammation can produce
mottled thermal patterns that can simulate the appearance of estrogen stimulation in the
breasts and should therefore be considered in the case of an elevated hormonal grade.
Altered thyroid function can create mottling and can directly alter the estrogen
progesterone balance. In addition, chronic: pain, stress, hormonal imbalance, allergy,
illness, (low-grade) infection, exposure to foods/chemicals for which one is sensitive can
also affect nervous and/or immune/lymphatic system function creating mottling. When the
hormonal grade is at a 3 or 4, all of these factors should be considered.

Grade 0 – There are no symmetrical blood vessel patterns in the breasts which means
the breasts do not appear to be stimulated by estrogen at all. Your breasts appear to be
handling the estrogen in your body very well and there is really nothing to be done to
restore hormonal balance in the breasts. If you are taking hormone replacement, this
rating is great news since it suggests that the estrogen is probably not contributing to any
risk you may have for developing cancer. This rating is most common in post menopausal
women and is considered to be the healthiest.

Grade 1 – Symmetrical blood vessel patterns are seen in the chest wall and upper most
breast surface only. This suggests a small amount estrogen activity but like Grade 0,
suggests that the estrogen in your body is not contributing to any risk you may have for
developing cancer. This rating is also common in post menopausal women and is
considered to be healthy.

How should you follow up for a Hormonal Grade of 0 or 1:
No follow up or management is necessary. You are doing just fine!

Grade 2 – Symmetrical blood vessel patterns now extend to the upper-inner and/or
upper outer quadrants of the breasts. This suggests a slightly higher activity than Grade 1
suggests and the estrogen in your body is probably not contributing to any risk you might
have for developing cancer or that the contribution is small. This grade is commonly seen
in premenopausal women and is considered to be healthy.

How should you follow up for a Hormonal Grade 2:
This grade does not necessarily require any follow up or management and may be
normal especially for pre-menopausal women. For post menopausal women who are
not on hormones, they may wish to work with a holistic practitioner to try to lower the
estrogen stimulation to the breasts especially if their TH rating is suggesting any
elevation in risk.

Grade 3 – The blood vessel patterns now extend to the level of the nipple line as they do
during pregnancy under the effects of estrogen. This suggests moderate estrogen activity
and may suggest that estrogen stimulation of the breasts may be contributing to risk for
developing cancer. The reason I say ‘may’ is because woman who are pregnant, lactating
will generally have a Hormonal Grade of 3 or 4 due to natural hormonal changes. Also,
women on birth control pills and hormone replacement will also commonly exhibit this
Hormonal Grade as a function of the hormones they are taking. This grade simply says the
level of stimulation is elevated. The TH rating will let you know the level of risk for
developing cancer. Other possible causes for this rating included large breast size, poor
estrogen-progesterone balance and poor estrogen metabolism.

Grade 4 – The symmetrical blood vessel patterns now are seen extending below the
nipple line. The significance is the same as Grade 3. The level of stimulation is just greater.

How should you follow up for a Hormonal Grade 3 or 4:
The first thing to do with a Hormonal Grade 3 or 4 is to check the TH ratings to see the
level of risk. We will show you how to put together the two rating systems in the next
section. The next step is to investigate what might be causing the elevation.
If you are pregnant or lactating there is nothing to do. This is completely normal for
you and should not generate any concern. If you are taking hormones or birth control
pills, this is likely the cause and reducing the activity may not be possible as long as
you continue on these medications. Use the TH rating to determine if there is an
elevated level of risk for the breasts. If there is a TH rating of 3 or higher, addressing
the estrogen may be a way to lower your risk. If discontinuing treatment is not an
option or not desired, watch the TH ratings to see if any increase in risk can be
detected and use that with your health care provider to determine if changes to your
hormone intake are warranted.
If there are no obvious sources of estrogen that could explain the grade it is time to
look at environmental and dietary estrogen, estrogen-progesterone balance and
estrogen metabolism. Tips on how to do this may be available from the center where
you were imaged or a consultation with a holistic health care provider can be

How do I understand the significance of a particular TH rating with a particular hormonal grade?
The easiest way to think about this is to remember that the TH rating looks at the effect of all risk factors on the breast tissue while the Hormonal Grade looks at only the effects of estrogen. In other words, you can have a high hormonal grade suggesting lots of estrogen stimulation but a low TH rating. This means that although the estrogen stimulation is high, it is not causing a measurable increase in your level of risk. It is also possible to have a high TH rating and a low Hormonal Grade. This means that the level of risk for the high rated breast is elevated but that estrogen does appear to be a contributing factor.

It’s Leap Year! We have 1 more day this year, more time, or do we? What is time? It’s not a clock or a watch or a calendar. Time, I’ve been told is an artificial construct, something man created to give order to his world. Our ancestors observed patterns of change in the sky above them and used these patterns as a basis for creating the concept of time. Time gives predictability to our lives, even if it is an illusion. “When?” and “How long will it take?” are important questions to us, but perhaps we need to worry less about how much time we have and be more concerned about how we use the time we have, the choices we make.

I’ve observed that the perception of time seems to vary with individuals. Young people often think time is moving too slowly, while older people know that it moves much too fast. Some people seem to think their time is more important than the time of others. Observe the driver who weaves in and out of traffic, unnecessarily endangering other drivers because he or she didn’t allow enough time to get to a destination, or the doctor’s office that expects a patient to be on time only to wait and wait and wait for the doctor who spends 10 minutes with them, if they are lucky, or the insurance company that demands that we pay our premiums on time but makes us wait far too long for them to pay a legitimate claim. My grandson operates on his own time schedule. He doesn’t care what day it is or what time it is. If he is absorbed in completing a task he has set for himself, forget about expecting him to do what you want him to do when you want him to do it. He’s very bright and he usually makes good grades in school, but he sometimes has difficulty completing a test in the allotted time because he wants to answer every question correctly and fully according to his standards.

Most people are concerned with saving time, but what if we could buy time? At COEM we make it possible for women to buy time when it comes to breast cancer with our thermography program. Thermography, a completely safe procedure with little discomfort, gives a woman an early warning signal by providing information about changes in breast tissue which may predict the development of cancer 6 to 10 years before the cancer actually develops, and gives her time to do something about those changes. We offer advice about life style and dietary changes and supplements which can reverse those changes and restore normal tissue, preventing cancer. Thermography helps a woman save her life by buying time. Call and set up an appointment and buy yourself some time.

We are pleased to have you visit our website and request you to check back regularly and participate in the discussions.
Our first blog is about the types of people who come for treatment at COEM. While the center is based in Charleston, SC our patient population actually comes from all over the world!  There are several reasons for this:
1. Reputation of Doctors
2. Quality of Care
3. Value
4. Personal Attention
COEM believes in looking at the “total body stress load” for every patient that comes to our center.  We compare the human body to an elevator:  an elevator may have a maximum capacity of 2,500 lbs.  The elevator does not know who gets on and who gets off, it just knows that after it reaches 2,500 lbs it cannot function the way it would like to.  Our bodies respond the same way;  allergies, exposures, diet, work-related stress, and depression are just a handful of the many ‘passengers’ that get on our elevators.  We work to eliminate some of the ‘passengers’ through allergy testing, chelation therapy, dietary supplementation, nutritional counseling, and other techniques.
COEM prides itself on the sincerity we take with our patients. We know that you have
choices and can seek care anywhere. What sets us apart is the attention to detail and the attention to the individual. We genuinely care for our patients and that shows in the numerous personal referrals we get of friends, co-workers and family members. It is not uncommon for us to treat 3 generations of one family!  Here are just a few comments from patients that we have received:
“Everyone was pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable” – Columbia, SC
“So full of information, took time with me, I felt like everyone truly wanted to help you.  I was not pushed out the door in 30 minutes with a bag full of medicine that would not help.  I feel I have found the right place to help with my problems.  Thank you” –  Walterboro, SC
“Exceptional value” – Hilton Head Island, SC
“My experience at COEM was very personal.  My historian and Dr. Lieberman were great listeners and showed concern for me personally” – Lyman, SC
“I have renewed faith in doctors.  Not only are you thorough- you actually listen” – Charleston, SC
Would it surprise you that we see patients from the far East, Middle East, Europe, and all over North America?  What is the farthest distance you would be willing to travel to seek help for you or your loved one’s conditions?  What do you most value when you visit physician offices?
Our approach to medicine is more holistic and we try to help your body heal itself.  Do you want to take a more holistic approach to healing?
The purpose of this blog is to get both current and prospective patients to interact with us.  Tell us what you want from a doctor, tell us what you already like about the Center, share with us news articles pertaining to what we do or medicine in general.

Borage Oil is a nutritional supplement that is high in Essential Fatty Acids (efa’s). Whereas the various forms of DHA and fish oils that we offer are high in Omega 3 essential fatty acids, Borage Oil is the one essential fatty acid that we recommend. Normally we get too much efa’s in our American diet, but certain plant oils like Borage Oil are desirable for their unique Gamma Linolenic Acid or GLA content. GLA boosts beneficial prostaglandins that are anti-inflammatory and provide a sense of well-being.

If you observe nutritional practices, you’ll see that there’s always a “newly discovered” supplement on the market that attracts a lot of research and attention. Back in the early 1990’s Scientists became interested in that “new” supplement – Borage Oil; although it had been used by herbalists for centuries prior to help relieve symptoms of stress, colds, and bronchitis.

In 1993, clinical trials, reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine (1), using 1.4 grams of borage oil daily for 24 weeks, found it to be a well-tolerated and effective treatment for patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

Another 1993 study, in the British Journal of Dermatology (2), reported that 48 children with dry scales and crusts on their eyelids, scalp, face, armpit, and groin—in other words 48 miserably uncomfortable children—used borage oil topically for just 10 to 12 days, and all the children became totally free of lesions with no recurrence.

The famous doctor and author, Dr. Andrew Weil, uses Borage Oil to help relieve hair loss, dandruff, itchy scalp, and folliculitis. Even Northstar Nutritionals uses Borage Oil in the Restore FX hair loss product that we carry at COEM.

Borage Oil has also been used by alternative practitioners for its hormonal effects. It reportedly helps stabilize the adrenal glands and boosts production of adrenaline, and therefore helps relieve stress. Other practitioners have used it more specifically to relieve PMS symptoms in women.

Dr. Lieberman recommends a high GLA supplement such as Borage Oil (3) not only because of the above effects, but more specifically because of its ability to boost Prostaglandin E1 and help relieve depression. Individuals with British, Scottish, or Welsh ancestry especially have difficulty converting essential fatty acids into Prostaglandin E1, and GLA helps bridge that gap and relieve their lifelong tendency of mild to moderate depression. Those individuals may be prone to drink too much as well (even if just wine or beer) because alcohol temporarily boosts Prostaglandin E1, despite the fact that it also uses up the raw materials to make Prostaglandin E1, so the individual is driven to drink more to try to get the same lift. GLA provides the raw materials so that the individual ultimately gets the lift without drinking.

Dose: Take 1 capsule 2 to 3 times daily with meals.

Contraindications: Due to its hormonal effects which also include relaxation of uterine muscles, Borage Oil should not be taken during pregnancy. It also reduces platelet function so if an individual has a tendency to bleed easily or is on a blood thinner such as Coumadin, Borage Oil should not be taken.

Also the seeds, though not necessarily the oil, contain a toxic substance that can harm the liver, so very large doses of Borage Oil should not be taken for prolonged periods of time.

As with all nutritional supplements we recommend that you purchase only high quality, doctor researched and recommended supplements and use them as directed by a physician or nutritionist in order to get the most benefit and avoid any potential problems from their use.

3 A proper balance of fatty acids is as important to good health as are vitamins and minerals. This supplement is desirable whenever Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) is needed to boost beneficial prostaglandins which help counteract inflammation and provide a sense of well-being. It has been used in eczema, chronic fatigue, and certain forms of chronic depression. Borage oils provides a higher ratio of GLA to linoleic acid than Evening Primrose Oil and similar plant oils. This product replaces our former Evening Primrose Oil. Each 1,000 mg softgel provides 1,000 mg of cold-pressed Borage Oil, supplying 200 mg of Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) and 7 mg of Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E). 100 softgels.
