Ashley AJuly 15, 2024Breast thermography and mammography are both imaging techniques used in breast cancer detection, but they work on different principles. Thermography is looking at physiological changes in the body, while a mammogram is an anatomical test looking at a lump that is already formed. Breast Thermography Principle Breast thermography measures the temperature patterns on the surface of the breasts using infrared imaging. It is based on taking a heat map of the body that looks for cancerous tumors which tend to have increased blood flow and metabolic activity, which can cause a slight increase in temperature compared to surrounding healthy tissue. Advantages: Non-invasive: No radiation or compression is involved. Early detection: Can detect vascular changes associated with breast cancer earlier than other methods. Suitable for dense breasts: Can be more effective in detecting abnormalities in dense breast tissue, which may be challenging for mammograms. It can show inflammatory breast cancer signs, which can not be picked up on a mammogram. Effective screening tool for women with breast implants. Repeatable: Can be repeated frequently without any risk. Limitations Not diagnostic: It can detect changes in breast tissue temperature, but it cannot diagnose breast cancer. It is a screening tool. Further diagnostic tests are needed to confirm any abnormalities detected. Mammography Principle Mammography uses X-rays to create images of the breast tissue. It can detect tumors or abnormalities based on the finding of a lump in the breast tissue that may indicate the presence of breast cancer. Physical activity can help reduce stress, improve memory, aid sleep, and boost overall mood. Advantages Diagnostic: Can detect breast cancer, making treatment more effective. Guided biopsies: Abnormalities detected on mammograms can often be further evaluated through guided biopsies. Limitations Radiation exposure: Involves exposure to ionizing radiation, which may pose a risk, especially with repeated screenings. Discomfort: Compression of the breast tissue during the procedure can be uncomfortable for some women. Less effective in dense breasts: Mammograms may be less sensitive in detecting abnormalities in women with dense breast tissue, or women who have implants. It is a screening tool, and further tests are needed to detect if cancer is present. Adding thermography to mammography can be beneficial because it provides complementary information. Thermography may detect vascular changes associated with cancerous tumors earlier than mammograms, especially in women with dense breast tissue. By combining both techniques, healthcare providers can potentially improve the accuracy of breast cancer detection, reduce false positives, and provide more personalized care. When a thermogram is used as an adjunct screening to a mammogram the results for early detection are significantly higher. [...] Read more...
Ashley AJune 4, 2024As a child it seemed I lived under a cloud, doing my best to block out the reality in front of me. I was constantly tired. I looked for validation outside of myself. I never spoke up for fear of being judged. I would hide who I really was in fear that people would not like me. Most of the time I felt lost, without a purpose. I had many limiting beliefs that affected the way I lived my life. As I got older I was drawn to understand why I felt like this, so I could heal. Mental health encompasses our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act, influencing our ability to handle stress, relate to others, and make decisions. When I was a child I grew up in a dysfunctional household, where addiction and confrontation were the norm. Due to these experiences I developed anxiety, and an insecure attachment style. Having a loving and stable upbringing lays the foundation for healthy emotional, cognitive, and social development. A child’s prefrontal cortex of their brain is still developing up until the age of seven, so what children experience in these first seven years is crucial to healthy development. I know now that the trauma I experienced, along with poor eating habits as a child had me show up and believe things that were not true. It created disoriented thoughts, and mood dysregulation. I have made many changes to the way I think through various principles that I have studied.When I work with clients we focus on a whole body approach to healing our mental health. This encompasses exercise, eating habits, mindfulness practices, inner-child work, and more. Below are some things I recommend you can start doing to elevate your mental well being Regular Physical Activity: Exercise releases endorphins, which are chemicals in the brain that act as natura l painkillers and mood elevators. Physical activity can help reduce stress, improve memory, aid sleep, and boost overall mood. Healthy Diet Eating a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, healthy carbs, healthy fats, and proteins, can improve brain function and emotional regulation. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon, grass fed beef and walnuts, have been linked to lower rates of depression. Eating liver is one of the richest sources of vitamin B12, which is crucial for maintaining healthy nerve cells and producing neurotransmitters that regulate mood. Deficiency in B12 is linked to depression and cognitive decline. If you do want to eat liver, you can either take these liver supplements or this protein powder. Adequate Sleep: Quality sleep is crucial for mental health, as it helps with cognitive function, emotional regulation, and stress management. Maintaining a consistent sleep schedule and creating a restful environment can improve sleep quality. If you have trouble sleeping please go to my sleep section on my shop so you can see the products I recommend. Mindfulness and Meditation: Practices like mindfulness, meditation, and deep-breathing exercises can reduce stress and improve mood. These practices help increase awareness and acceptance of the present moment, reducing negative thought patterns. Social Connections: Building and maintaining strong relationships can provide emotional support and reduce feelings of isolation. Engaging in social activities and community events can foster a sense of belonging and purpose. Healthy Lifestyle Choices: Avoiding excessive alcohol consumption and substance use can prevent the exacerbation of mental health issues. Engaging in hobbies and activities that bring joy and fulfillment can improve mental health. When we start creating these healthy habits, it will improve the quality of our life. It will enhance our emotional stability, and we will feel more satisfied and happy with our lives. You will notice how your productivity will increase, relationships will improve, and stress will melt away. Start engaging in these healthy practices and you will see how your life will become more fulfilled in various ways. [...] Read more...
Ashley AMay 20, 2024Our microbiome has more nerve cells than our actual brain does. It affects our mood, our immune system and so much more. We pass our microbiome down to our children. Our gut health starts in utero. We inherit our gut from our mother. If our mother did not have the best microbiome than we have to heal our own. If while pregnant you did not have this information, it is okay. You can start healing your kids gut health now. In the first year of life your gut lining is still sealing and you are more vulnerable to toxin exposure, which is why it is so important to nourish your baby with the right nutrients, and limit chemical exposure. Europe reststricts10,000 chemicals. The US only limits 12. Gluten is not sprayed with glyphosate in Europe but it is in the U.S When pregnant you want to make sure you are taking a prenatal vitamin, cod liver oil, choline, B vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and eating a nutrient dense diet. When you are eating a diet high in protein and fat your babies brain will develop properly.It is important to minimize toxins before we get pregnant. Everything we eat, and put into our body, including our emotional state will affect our baby. A study showed 287 toxins in the umbilical cord of a brand new baby which was all due to moms toxic exposure. Pregnant moms with high phthalate levels in their urine give birth to children who later show lower IQs. There is a study that showed 407% spike in Alzheimer’s among 30-44 year old linked to inflammation from nano plastics. As you can see, this is why limiting toxins is extremely important for overall health. Our children are bombarded with toxins like we have never seen before. When a child’s body is so overwhelmed with toxins they can’t keep up with detoxing and that is how disease and illness develop. The first five years are the most important because that is when our child’s immune system is most vulnerable. You can make a change and help heal your child at anytime. It is never to late to heal. Here are some things you can do: Breastfeed if you can. If you are breastfeeding, make sure you have a high quality diet, and are taking supplements that support the babies immune system. If you can not breastfeed, purchase a high quality formula with no seed oils or make your own raw milk formula. Limit antibiotics. Try homeopathy instead. Remember that a fever is not a bad thing- its the bodies response to fighting off the virus. Belladonna is a great homeopathic you can use for helping with your little ones fever discomfort. I like this brand. Limit vaccines, space out vaccines, or do not do them at all. If you have noticed your child has any delays, rashes, symptoms of autisim, please do not get a vaccine when this is occurring. They are loaded with toxic ingredients, heavy metals, aborted fetal cells, formaldehyde, polysorbate 80, animal and food proteins and aluminum to name a few. Here is a great book if you are interested in learning more. Opt for having your baby drink from a glass bottle, and throw away plastic bottles. I like these glass bottles for my baby. I like these glass cups for when baby is no longer on bottles. Put babies food in glass tupperware. I like this tupperware. Have a whole house water filtration system. This will limit exposure to chlorine. I love my water system in my house. Before getting a whole house one, I used this one that I loved! You can purchase this for an add on to your shower: Choose bath products that have zero chemicals. For my baby I like Use a natural sunscreen or make your own with zinc oxide and shea butter. I have found it hard to find a great sunscreen, because even when they say it is natural, they have many ingredients in them. Be sure to look at the ingredient list. This one is more pricey but if you do not want to make your own this is the best one I have found. I feel it is worth it because our skin is the largest organ on our body and those chemicals we put on our skin gets absorbed immediately into our bloodstream. This one is not on Amazon but its worth ordering from this company. Here is the link: https://skyandsol.com Get an air filter. The quality of the air in our home matters, and affects or health. I own this one. Get rid of glade plug ins, and purchase an essential oil diffuser instead. I like this one. I will do another blog on my favorite essential oils! Limit exposure to EMFS by limiting electronics, and TV and getting an EMF blocker for our home and devices. I turn off my phone and wifi at night for limited exposure and better sleep. Personally I have devices for my phone and computer and I keep Shungite near my wifi router. I am in the process of looking for a home EMF blocker. In the meantime you can get a few of these around your home. Opt for wooden toys over plastic ones. I love Melissa and Doug Toys for toddlers. Use all natural cleaning products in your home. Click on my blog about natural cleaning products to learn more! Buy an organic baby crib mattress. I love this one. Give baby or toddler a detox bath once a week with magnesium flakes, baking soda, and borax. I like this brand for magnesium. Let babies and kids play in dirt and in nature. Earth everyday! Get some earthing shoes if you can not earth. I like this brand. hrow away antibacterial wipes, and opt for water wipes. We need the germs to have a healthy microbiome. Avoid gluten and seed oils when looking at ingredients. Opt for snacks like these. Give your baby a nutrient dense diet starting at 6 months. Diet to give to a baby Bone Broth. You can make your own. If you do not want to, you can purchase my favorite brand here. Egg yolk. I like to get my eggs from a local farm. Organ Meats. I make a puree for my baby. You can also purchase these liver supplements and add to baby or toddlers food. Vegetables Fruits Grass fed meats, and pasture raised meats Raw dairy or A2 dairy For the first year of life it is recommended to give no grains. If you do give grains, please soak and sprout them. I will write another article about my favorite grains, how you can cook them and where to get them. To get started, you can cook lentils. I buy this brand and it is so fast to cook them! You can purchase sprouted lentils, and grains here. Vegetables Fruits Grass fed meats, and pasture raised meats Raw dairy or A2 dairy If your kid is past the age of one and you did not do any of this, its okay! You can still heal your child’s microbiome. If your kid has chronic ear infections,itchiness, ezema, asthma, diabeties, or allergies it can indicate that their microbiome needs work. Here are some things you can do to help: Line the gut with these supplements: L Glutamine Powder Ion Biome Collagen Powder Build their immune system with these supplements: Elderberry Cell Salts Rosita Cod Liver Oil For added hydration, which in turn helps with gut health: *Add electrolytes to water. This is my favorite one. *Add sea salt to water. I use Redmond Sea Salt. Herbs to use when your kids are sick: *Olive Leaf Extract *Goldenseal Extract *Homeopathy for colds Boiron Childrens Coldcalm Boiron ColdCalm Single Use **Black cumin seed oil *Raw honey If you want a glass jar use this one: *Vitamin D drops * Zinc All products I mentioned above I personally use or have used. I do not recommend anything I have not researched myself or have not used on myself or my kids. Not all products are made the same, so I take this very seriously. If you have questions please reach out to me.If you are looking to heal your child’s gut this is a great start. If your child is experiencing any symptoms mentioned above such as eczema, ear aches, rashes, itchiness, or chronic infections you may want to consider doing the GAPS diet for one month. I will share with you about that in my next blog. In the meantime you can remove gluten, corn, soy, and processed dairy from their diet to see if their symptoms improve. I hope this article was helpful. Please send me a message if you need more individual support. [...] Read more...
Ashley AMay 8, 2024Years ago my dad told me to read this book called “Think and Grow Rich,” by Napolean Hill. Much of what he discusses is what we now know as The Law of Attraction. This means that what we think and focus on becomes our reality. I have been studying this work for years, and I still tend to have shortcomings, falling back into old patterns. When things do not go right, it is easy to complain or to blame someone else. However, when we do this we are not creating the reality we really want. We think this is going to make us feel better. Yet, in the end it makes us feel worse, and we are only creating more drama, more unhappiness, more negativity, and more of what we do not want in our life. The question we must ask ourselves is “How do I attract more of what I want into my life, and less of what I do not want? In my opinion it is by constantly noticing and being aware of our thoughts, and our beliefs. Then shifting them to what we truly want. Abraham Hicks states that we must focus on what brings us joy, and constantly do that so that we can be in our highest vibration. When we think about thoughts that ignite fire in us, then our vibration raises, and it is easier to attract this into our existence. Each day I start my day with journaling, gratitude, and meditation. This helps get me in a good mindset for the upcoming day. During meditation, I notice what thoughts are arising, and I ask myself if these thoughts are serving me. If not, I picture them in a bubble floating away. I do my best to do this when I am going through my day as well. Now when I complain, I catch myself, and I notice how this thought is not serving me. This is not an easy task, especially when we have been doing this pattern for so long. When we continue to work on it, we start to shift our  mind in a new direction. We start to think about what we want, and what we have that is good in our life, and we focus on this. We do not focus on the lack of, or on low forming thoughts like gossip, blame, jealousy, comparison and so forth.  We can get ourselves into a higher vibration by just thinking about what lights us up. Then we start taking action on doing more of these things, It is a ripple effect. Manifestation is powerful. We all have the ability and power to manifest what we want in our lives. How to start manifesting: Write down all the things that bring you pure joy in your life. Think about each one, visualizing doing this each day. Take action by doing one thing a day that brings you joy. Think about what you have that you are grateful for. Gratitude is powerful. Start to become aware of the thoughts you are thinking, and ask yourself if they are serving you. If this seems overwhelming, start with the easiest task for you. The more you read about this work, and begin to do the exercises the easier it will become. Lets celebrate creating the life we have always wanted, and manifest it into existence! [...] Read more...
Ashley AMay 6, 2024I recently became a coach for an amazing company called IHelpMoms. Michelle, the owner is on a mission to help as many moms as she can get the support they need. When I coach clients, the topic of balance comes up alot. When I was asked to answer this question, I thought it would be a perfect blog post since so many of us are juggling so much at one time. When you have multiple kids, a tight budget and limited time as a working mom….how do you balance your kids lessons, sports and activities? Being overwhelmed can put our nervous system and our vagus nerve into shock. We can become scattered, anxious, and emotional when we are trying to get too much done on our own. The first step to balance is working on getting back to a place of calm. When we focus on one moment at a time, we can tend to stay in the present moment, and not get ahead of ourselves. There are many ways to balance the nervous system. When you are a busy mom you may not have the time to do all of the exercises but you can choose one that takes only five minutes to help prepare for the rest of the day. Set your alarm five minutes earlier and do 5 minutes of fire breath, or another form of deep breathing. This can help reprogram your nervous system. There are other tools we can go over too for moms who have a bit more time or want something different. The next thing I would recommend is asking for support. As moms we can NOT do it all on our own. Maybe you can find a moms helper, or ask a friend if they can pick up your kids from sports. You can work out a car pool to help make activities easier. Regarding budget and time around food, I feel meal prep is the biggest life saver. You can carve it out once or twice a week, and get your kids involved in helping. When kids are helping, they also get excited about eating healthier foods. When I meal prep, I make a soup, roasted veggies, lentils and rice, and some protein such as chicken or beef and put it in the fridge to have for a few days. To recap it is important as a busy mom to breathe, prep, and ask for support. If you can make the time for a few minutes in the morning, throughout the day or in the evening to do some self care that is only for you this would really help balance as well. Some squats, jumping jacks or a brisk walk can change your entire energy for the day. Do your best to take care of yourself so you can take care of your loved ones. You may want to write a list down of things you love doing, and things that bring you joy- and start implementing small things to each day. Small changes make a big difference. If you need any extra support, I am here to guide you on your journey.

Ashley AApril 15, 2024May is now here, and this is a great time for us to cleanse our space. I feel so much lighter when my house has less things in it, and when my closet is organized. I used to hear all the time that you can focus more when the space around you is organized. I truly get that now. I truly believe that when we strive to be more of a minimalist, we have more space for creativity to flow. Think about getting rid of toys your kids no longer use, old cloths you no longer wear, pots or pans that you no longer want, old electronics and so on. You can donate to a charity of your choice, and I guarantee you won’t miss those things. You get to create a sacred space that you will love. If you want more information on creating a sacred space, please let me know and I will connect you with my friend Paula who is wonderful at helping people with this. Now once you have decluttered and given away things that no longer serve you, you can start to do the deep clean in your house. I absolutely love my space after I have deep cleaned it. The problem with deep cleaning is that most people use products filled with chemicals that are harmful to your health. I suggest switching over to products that are more natural. Look for products that do not contain perfumes, dyes, or synthetic ingredients. Many products promote themselves as natural and are not natural so it is important to be your own advocate. You can also use an app on your phone called Think Dirty to see the rating. Here are a list of some of my favorite cleaning products that I use, and that are easily accessible on amazon: Laundry Detergent Dishwashing Soap Dish Soap Cleaner for Floor Countertop Spray Toilet Cleaner Bleach Alternative Stain Remover The last thing I want to discuss with you is what you are breathing in in your home. This makes a huge difference for your health as well. If you use any perfume plug ins in your home, those are filled with harsh chemicals. I suggest getting an essential oil diffuser. I own 5 of these and I diffuse oils all over my house. It helps my mood, creates a wonderful smell in my home, and benefits my health. You want to purchase good quality essential oils. I personally love Young Living Oils or Ver Vita Oils. If you were going to get one I would recommend purchasing Frankincense, as you can use this for so many various uses. These oils smell amazing, can be used on your skin too, and are benefiting your health. My next recommendation is to get an air filter. I recently got my house tested for Mold– and if you are experiencing any health issues, I highly believe in getting your home tested. If you need to know more about mold toxicity, I am happy to help. Just schedule a free 15 minute CONSULT HERE The mold inspector told me the most important thing for good air quality is getting an air purification system. I own the Air Doctor and have it running all the time. He tested it and said this is helping me have less bacteria in my air. When I first started learning about all these chemicals and needing to switch over, it overwhelmed me. I tried to create this sheet for you so you can have easy access to information that I needed to research. Please do not get overwhelmed. Take it one step at a time, and each step you take you are saying YES to a healthier you. [...] Read more...
Ashley AMay 26, 2022So often we eat mindlessly. We stuff food into our mouths while working on the computer, watching TV, or when we’re on the run. The pleasure of eating lies in slowing down and fully experiencing all of the elements of food. I have been practicing sitting down for meals, and teaching my kids to say a little prayer, intention or blessing before eating. Before eating I bless my food: “May this food provide me with the nutrients I need to make my body function to its highest potential. Thank you so much for this food in front of me” It is something short, and sweet. I feel this increases the vibration of the food. My daughter says this before eating: “Thank you for the food before us, the friends beside us, and the love between us. Bon Apetite, lets eat.” She is 5 years old, so we can start early with our little ones! A mindful eating journal is something I highly recomend. There is something magical that happens when we are writing things down, and practicing being intentional. You can purchase this amazing journal here. I have also been focusing on slowing down when I eat, and chewing my food more. Take some time to explore each of the following during your next meal and notice the difference. I have done in person workshops where we do these exercises, and people are amazed what happens when they are present to what they eat. Sight: Look at your food and imagine you are a Martian scientist. You just arrived on Earth and have never seen this food before. Look at it carefully without naming it. Can you see the water, the rain and the sunlight within the food? Smell: Bring the food up to your nose. Without naming the scent, experience smelling the food, and then describe what you smell. Physiological reaction: Now focus on what is going on in your mouth. Begin to notice that saliva is produced, even though you haven’t yet put the food in your mouth. Notice the mind/body phenomenon and how the senses respond to the anticipation of food being eaten Touch: Now explore how the food feels. Without naming the sensation, just experience touching your food. Motion and movement: How is it that your hand knows how to move the food directly to the lips? As you bring the food up to your mouth, notice what happens next. The mouth receives the food. Nothing goes into the mouth without it being received. And who or what is doing the receiving? The tongue. Observe what the tongue does with it. How does it get the food between the teeth? It’s amazing that the tongue is so skilled, and that such a remarkable muscle can actually receive food and then know what to do with it every time. Taste: After becoming aware of the food in your mouth, start biting into it very slowly. Then begin to chew. Notice that the tongue decides which side of the mouth it’s going to chew on. Give all your attention to your mouth and take a few bites. Then stop to experience what’s happening. What is happening is invariably an explosion of taste. Express what’s going on. Be really specific. What is the experience? Is it sweet or sour or juicy? There are hundreds of words to describe the experience of tasting. Texture: As you continue to chew the tastes change, as does the consistency. At a certain point you will become aware of the texture of the food because the taste has mostly passed. If the texture causes aversion, you may want to swallow it, but try to keep it in your mouth. Swallow: Don’t swallow it yet. Stay with the impatience and the inborn impulse to swallow. Do not swallow until you detect the impulse to do so. And then observe what is involved in getting the food over to the place where it’s going to be swallowed. When you detect the impulse to swallow, follow it down into the stomach, feel your whole body and acknowledge that your body is now exactly one bite heavier. Breath: Next, pause for a moment or two, and see if you can taste your breath in a similar way. Bring the same quality of attention to the breath that you gave to seeing, feeling, smelling and tasting the food. Silence: Be silent. By this point, you understand something of what meditation is. It is doing what we do all the time, except we’re doing it with attention: directed, moment-to-moment, nonjudgmental attention. I did a mindful eating workshop, where I blind folded each person. They picked food with their hand from a bag. They had to use their senses to guess what it was. It is fun to be connected to our food. This is a lot of fun to do with different types of smoothies and soups to use your senses with all the ingredients. My favorite blender for making soups, smoothies, nut butters and more is the Vitamix. I have had mine for years, and use it everyday! You can get yours here. Make sure you eat slow because when you do, you break down your food better! The main thing is to have fun, learn something and understand yourself better. If you need additional support with eating mindfully please purchase this book.   [...] Read more...
Ashley AMay 17, 2022Having a gratitude practice can shift your life. When I was growing up, I heard constant complaining, and constant negativity. I never heard the term grateful, or heard the word gratitude. The more we complain, gossip or discuss negativity, the more we attract this into our lives. We may think that this is helping us feel better, but it normally just makes us feel worse. When we compare ourselves to others, and think in terms of what we lack, then our mood can shift into a downward spiral. When we focus on what we have, and all that is working in our life, our mood shifts upward. For the past few years I have had a gratitude practice, and every morning my 5 year old daughter, and I share what we are grateful for. Even on days when I am not feeling grateful, I still do this practice, and it helps me feel at peace and accept the moment that is happening now. Finding gratitude is not always easy when we feel stressed, overwhelmed, or anxious. Even though we all know we have so much to be grateful for, our normal human behavior is to focus on what is not working, what we do not have, and what we are lacking. The shift to gratitude takes practice. Gratitude is a trait that is developed over time with consistency. There are so many benefits of practicing gratitude. Some benefits you experience are: Develop more positive emotions Feel more alive and joyful Sleep better Have more compassion and kindness Strong immune system How do we switch our behavior, beliefs, and actions to a state of gratitude? When I was working at a drug and alcohol recovery center, each morning the clients would write ten things they were grateful for. I encouraged them to be specific with their gratitude. For instance, if they wrote I am grateful for my boyfriend, I would ask them to write down why, or to expand on one nice small gesture he did that week. The more we focus on specific experiences that make us feel grateful, the more we deeply feel gratitude. You can write in your gratitude journal in the morning, or anytime of the day. I recommend waking up ten minutes earlier and doing this first thing in the morning to start your morning out right. If you would like more specific questions guiding you to set intentions with gratitude, here is an incredible gratitude journal you can purchase. Another option for those that do not want to journal is speaking your gratitude. For two years now, every morning I message one of my friends, and we share for two minutes specific things we are grateful for. I love this practice because I can do it anywhere, anytime, and I have a friend to hold me accountable. Plus I learn so much from listening to her gratitude. It gives me more ideas of things to be grateful for that I did not think of before. I encourage you when you get out of bed in the morning to put your feet on the ground and say “I am blessed.” Take a few minutes to stand or sit and visualize your day and how grateful you are for it. Just to recap, here are some ways you can focus on being grateful each day: Write a gratitude journal Talk and tell a friend each day for two minutes Wake up and say “I am blessed in the morning.” Then think of all the things you are grateful for. I hope you find a gratitude practice that works for you. I  hope you realize that life is not always going to be easy or perfect, but that life is truly a gift that we can be grateful for. This is the first book that opened me up to learning about a gratitude practice. Her experience showed me just how important and valuable gratitude is, and now I see the shift in my own life. You can purchase it here. [...] Read more...
Ashley AMay 5, 2022The start of my spiritual path began in 2010. I had just moved to New York City. I felt excited, overwhelmed, scared, and lost all at the same time. When I first arrived in NYC, I lived with a good friend of mine. I was in the process of trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, how to make money, and what I was interested in. I really wanted to start to get more in touch with who I was. I started questioning more and more about why I was here, and what the purpose of life was. I was not sure of my path or purpose, and I was eager to figure it out. Religion kept coming up for me. I grew up Jewish, but my parents were not religious. I was not really sure what God meant to me, or if I even believed in something higher than myself. My friend I was living with was Christian, and kept telling me to go to church with her. I started going with her. I enjoyed the message, but felt a bit out of place. I felt almost as if I was turning on my Jewish roots.I find it interesting that these beliefs about who I should be and how I grew up, were so deeply embedded in me. I continued to go to church, seeking something greater than myself. There was a Jewish Temple two blocks from where I was staying in midtown, so I decided to check it out. Walking in, I did not realize that this temple was a Chabad Temple. They spoke only in Hebrew, which I did not understand. In this environment, I felt a bit out of place, but I also felt this embodiment of love. I met the Rabbi and his wife, and I started going to their house for Shabbat dinners. I learned all the customs. I asked questions. I witnessed how patient, kind, loving, and present they were with their children and everyone around them. I was yearning for this. I felt like I was getting closer to understanding what God was to me. Some of each religion resonated with me. I enjoyed the tradition each one brought. Yet, I still did not feel completely in touch with a higher power, with God, or with myself. I decided to continue going to Temple and Church to see what could open up for me. Years go by and I move back to Florida. I decided to try yoga again. I had done it in the past, but only purely for exercise. This time I found a studio that taught philosophy,and breathwork too. I started going regularly, and felt a sense of deep relaxation and oneness with everything around me. I started studying yogic philosophy. This resonated with me because I was able to get in touch with myself. I was still yearning to understand how I could connect to God, and how I connect with this higher power. In Yoga training, they touched on Buddhism. I decided to check out some classes at a Budhissim Temple near where I lived. I really enjoyed this message, but knew I did not want to be a monk and have no worldly material possessions. Then on my journey, I crossed paths with Kabbalah. I enjoyed this philosophy as well, because it helped me take responsibility for my own actions, and then shed and spread light on others. All of these different philosophies fascinate me. I appreciate every philosophy and religion now. To me spirituality is not one religion or one specific principle. To me spirituality is having the awareness to know myself, to grow into the best version of myself, and to look within rather than without. All of the things I have learned on my path have helped me see this clearly. Now I put all the principles I have learned together to form a life of deep meaning, and connection with myself and others. I have made a little altar in my room filled with the 4 elements to help ground me. I have crystals that resonate with me to represent earth, a feather for wind, a natural candle for fire, and a sea shell for water. I also really enjoy the smell of sage before I meditate.

Ashley AJanuary 28, 2016Coming in for a follow up scan is extremely important. As you can see in the above picture, this person was supposed to come back for a 3 month follow up due to being high risk. She waited to come back, and unfortunately at this point the inflammation, or in her case the cancer had spread. We want to do everything in our power to prevent disease, or catch it early. If we have a thermogram showing risk and all other tests are normal, we have a risk marker for the future. You should return to monitor for 3 reasons: 1) Thermal findings getting worse over time after normal anatomical tests could signal a need for more frequent anatomical testing. The mammo/us/mri were normal but for the past 6 months the thermography is getting worse. The doctor may wish to repeat anatomical tests early given the thermography results. 2) Someone with a high risk thermography could benefit from combination anatomical imaging rather than just mammogram or just ultrasound. 3) If you choose to take action to lower the risk, the thermography can help you know if your actions are effective. Lets be proactive about our health. If you want more information on how to keep your breasts healthy please purchase this book.   [...] Read more...
Ashley AJanuary 28, 2016If there was a technology that could evaluate your risk of developing breast cancer years before it showed physical symptoms, wouldn’t you want to get it done? This type of technology is exactly what medical thermography accomplishes and it’s been around since the 1950’s. Thermography is a safe, comfortable and easy procedure. This risk assessment test can aid in the early detection of breast cancer with absolutely no radiation or compression. Not only is there no harm in getting this test done, but if you see you are at risk, you have the opportunity to change your diet and take other natural steps to reverse the damage. Never heard of thermography? This, unfortunately, is the case for many Americans because it hasn’t been accepted as a mainstream screening tool and many medical practitioners still advise patients against it, despite the ample research supporting it. In this article we will discuss some thermography misconceptions and how you can take charge of your health by scheduling a screening! Misconception #1: Breast Cancer is a genetic disease. Five percent of all cancers are genetic and less than 3% of all breast cancers are genetic. The highest risks are related to environment, diet, stress, and lifestyle. There is a field of study called epigenetics which literally means “above” or “on top of” genetics. It refers to the external modifications to DNA which turn genes “on” or “off.” These modifications do not change the DNA sequence, but instead, they affect how cells “read” genes.” This means breast cancer is preventable! It also means that just because your mom or sister had breast cancer does not mean you will have it too. Misconception #2: A normal mammogram means there is no cancer. While the mammogram is still valuable for detecting cancer, it is important to know that most breast cancers take 8 to 10 years to develop. That means that while you may have had years of negative mammograms, there may be microscopic cells growing that will need to reach a significant size before they will be detected in your annual screening. When you add thermography to a mammogram you can detect cancer 95% early. This number is a significant difference and can save your life. Misconception #3: Thermography is a diagnostic tool. Thermography is a screening tool. It shows you where the abnormal heat patterns are and evaluates your risk for breast cancer based on those heat patterns. If your thermogram comes back as high risk this does not mean you have breast cancer. The next steps would be to get an adjunctive screening to rule anything out at this time. Then you work on lifestyle changes and natural interventions so that when you come back for your follow up screening, your high risk thermogram has decreased. I have seen many patients who have come back for follow up screenings and lowered their risk for breast cancer through lifestyle changes. I also always recommend for each patient to follow up with their doctor. The most important thing to know is that thermograms give you the early warning signs that can be reversed naturally. The earlier the detection, the easier it is to make changes. Misconception #4: I need a doctor to refer me for a thermography screening. You do not need a referral from a doctor in order to get a thermography screening. Unfortunately, many doctors do not know about medical thermogrpaphy or the research which supports it. Also many doctors do not deviate from the mainstream screening tools. As we’ve seen time and time again, many natural remedies take decades before they’re accepted into mainstream practice. Misconception #5: Medical Infrared Thermography has no research behind it. Since the 1980’s Thermography has been extensively studied. There are over 800 published peer review articles discussing the benefits of thermography as a screening tool. A 2008 study at the New York Presbyterian Hospital in Cornell, published in the American Journal of Surgery, showed it had 97% sensitivity. The research is accessible to us. Misconception #6 : Medical Infrared Thermography should replace the mammogram. This is false, and I feel many practitioners do not recommend thermography for this reason. Mammography and thermography are two totally different screening tools. Mammography is an anatomical test that can evaluate structures in the breast such as a calcification, or a lump. Thermography evaluates the physiological changes occurring in the body, looking at the abnormal heat patterns to track activity that may indicate risks. Studies have shown that when you receive a mammogram, thermography screening, and self breast exam you can catch cancer 98% earlier! The FDA has recognized thermography as an adjunct to mammography. Mammograms and thermograms both have their place. Due to the fact that women can’t receive a mammogram until age 45, thermography is also an excellent tool for younger women. Misconception #7: Thermography is only a screening of the breasts. There are also full body screenings available. The thermal activity can show root causes of allergies, dental pathologies, carotid artery disease, breast cancer, digestive dysfunction, thyroid disease, skin cancers, and musculoskeletal conditions, pain, and circulatory issues. As a thermographer I am constantly educating people on understanding how thermography works, and showing people how to reduce their risk of developing cancer. Thermography is a highly misunderstood medical screening tool. I feel it is my job to educate the public and spread awareness. If someone has a high risk thermogram I help them make nutritional lifestyle changes and send them to the practitioners and therapies that can best help them. Thermography is not intended to diagnose disease but to enhance our ability to help you achieve optimal health. [...] Read more...
Ashley AJanuary 27, 2016One of the best ways to prevent breast cancer is to get a thermography scan and monitor yourself frequently. This is an early detection screening tool! There are many steps we can do to improve our breast health and make sure we always have healthy tatas. Today I am going to focus on GUT health. Did you know that in order to have healthy breasts your gut also needs to be healthy? The first thermography scan I ever had was not the best. However, when I improved my gut health and did a rescan, my thermography was low risk for breast cancer. I can not definitely say that this was the cause or the link but I do believe it was related since this is when I started my gut health adventure. I  LOVE reading health articles. I am the type of person who loves to learn and to teach. Medicinal Food News says “When we are in good health, the population of bacteria that lives in our gut is said to be in balance – the number of “good bacteria” outnumber the number of “bad bacteria”. We feel good; we are able to resist disease and infection because our immune system that is stimulated by intestinal bacteria is functioning well. Beside digestion and absorption, interaction with the body`s immune system is perhaps one of the most important roles that the bacteria that live in our intestines play.” Eighty percent of our entire immune system is in our gut. Think about what happens to our immune system if our food is not being absorbed properly. How healthy can our immune system really be? After years of experimenting I found certain things  that worked best for me to improve my gut health. They worked for me, so I believe they can work for you too. Whether you have gut issues or not, everyone should be doing these things.  These are some things I suggest you start doing today to help with your gut health: STEP 1: REMOVE the major food allergens from your diet. These are gluten, dairy, soy, peanuts, and corn. If you know you have leaky gut then remove all grains too. Leaky gut is when undigested food particles slip through the gut lining and pass directly into the bloodstream. Many people have leaky gut and do not even know it. It normally happens due to lifestyle factors which include stress, poor diet and bacterial overgrowth. STEP 2: Add in a quality probiotic supplement–I like The Seed probiotic. I get mine on Amazon. STEP 3: Make Bone Broth. My favorite recipe is putting some grass fed bones in the instant pot with filtered water, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, ginger powder, and himalayan sea salt.  I make other soups with the broth, or just sip it plain. This is the PURE beauty of bone broth! This amazing broth is going to help patch up your gut lining, sort to speak. Plus its packed with great amino acids that you can not find in other products! You can also purchase bone broth. My favorite brand is Kettle and Fire. You can purchase beef or chicken. Chicken is more mild. You can purchase it here. Step 4: Add Collagen, and L Glutamine to your routine. You can add collagen powder to your coffee, or to your smoothies. It has great amino acids and will help with your gut. L Glutamine is an essential amino acid. I take this first thing in the morning in my lemon water, and you can not taste it. I like these two brands you can order here: 1. Anthony’s Collagen Peptide Powder, 1 lb, Pure Hydrolyzed, Gluten Free, Keto and Paleo Friendly, Grass Fed, Unflavored, Non GMO 2. Pure Encapsulations L-Glutamine Powder – Supplement for Immune and Digestive Support, Gut Health and Lining, Metabolism, and Muscle Support* – with Pure Free-Form L-Glutamine – 8 Ounces Healing your gut takes time but you can do it! If I did it, I know you can too! Remember this is one step towards improving your thermography scan and having less inflammation in your body. If you need support or hands on nutrition advice you can book a health consult with me.   [...] Read more...
