The problem in medicine today, as it has been, is that no emphasis is put into prevention. The reason is very simple, doctors were never educated in prevention. The “business” of medicine is fueled by the pharmaceutical companies, according to some estimates 55% of each dollar spent on medicine in the USA goes to pay for drugs. This is one of the main reasons that the cost of medical care in the USA is the highest in the world, amounting for 16% of GNP.
Cancer Prevention: Explore the benefits of state of the art Thermography. This modality is painless and can diagnose early Angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels which are formed as a result of tumor stimulation) that emits more infra-red waves (hot spot) that will be picked up by the IR (Infrared) camera.
This modality has no radiation (unlike mammography) and does not cause breast trauma due to breast tissue compression (like mammography) which, in it self, is a risk factor for developing breast cancer.
Most importantly, it quantifies the risk for developing breast cancer and therefore encourages you to use the “Prevention Protocol” to reduce the risk, thereby, preventing cancer.
Dr. Dekel is the only Board Certified OB-GYN and Breast Thermography in the Tri-State area.
Menopause effects 60 million women in the USA, the recent WHI (women’s Heath Initiative) study that showed an increase in breast cancer and heart disease in women take Premain (horse estrogen) and Provera (a synthetic derivative of Progesterone), created a shift in thinking of many women.
But, stopping HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) “cold turkey” is far from being pleasant, and increases your chance of experiencing menopausal symptoms, developing Osteoporosis and Heart Disease. Would you like to find out about the alternative?
Andropause (male menopause) – no one is talking about it other then promoting Viagra on TV. Few men even know about their alternative options!
Did you know that the number one cause for depression, muscle mass loss, and ED, in men over fifty, is low Testosterone?
Obesity is the number one health problem in the USA , a recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine stated the 64% of Americans are over weight and 30% are obese (more then 30% over ideal BMI). Obesity is directly related to increased incidence of hypertension, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer, inflicting huge toll on peoples health, life style, life expectancy and is estimated to cost over 200 Billion dollars a year.
If you are struggling with over weight, in spite of proper life style, you may be suffering from Adrenal and or Thyroid fatigue.
Our immune system is a subject that we all take for granted until we get sick. The majority of doctors will prescribe antibiotics after a short interview and a quick physical exam, just in case they are dealing with a bacterial infection. How many times we take antibiotics, unnecessarily, only to find that we have a viral episode but still, helping in creating resistant strain of bacteria? Would you like to find a natural way to boost your immune system, prevent infections, and increase your chances of preventing cancer?
Dissemination of the information that we already have, both to patients and doctors, showing them that prevention can significantly change the way we practice medicine in the USA , will improve the health and life style of millions of people.
