Reducing thermal risk ratings
by Connie Hernandez, ND
A simple way to decrease breast cancer risk ratings observed on breast thermography exams is by relieving lymphatic congestion.
The first step is to forego the use of underwire bras, which are congestive by their nature.
A good second step is daily lymphatic breast massage.
Follow the link below for an explanation and a video of Daya Fisch demonstrating lymphatic breast massage.
I’ve often seen thermal risk ratings revert to normal after just three months of daily lymphatic massage. The effectiveness increases by adding applications of Itires cream and/or Itires drops.
Unsweetened cranberry juice mixed in water cleanses the lymph and helps reduce congestion. Exercise also gets the lymph flowing.

Dr. Marcel’s Faux Meatballs
Whenever I make these meatballs, I invariably get asked for the recipe. You can include them in pasta dishes or serve them as a separate entree. Or you can shape them as a meatloaf.
A pesto sauce is excellent, but any sauce is fine.
1/2 eggplant, diced in ½-inch cubes
1 onion, diced fine
1 cup bread crumbs
½ cup grated parmesan
¾ cup pulverized pecans
½ cup pecan pieces
2 beaten eggs
20 basil leaves, chopped fine
1 carrot, julienned or diced very fine
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
- Heat oil in a large skillet. Sautee the onion in ¼ cup olive oil on medium heat for 3-4 minutes.
- Add eggplant and cook until soft – water should begin evaporate from eggplant. While the eggplant is sautéing, add about ½ tsp salt.
- When the eggplant/onion mixture has reached a brown, pasty but still moist consistency, turn off the heat and allow to cool. When cool, mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
- Form into meatballs or loaf.
- For meatloaf, bake covered at 375˚ for 40 minutes, then uncover and bake until the meatloaf mixture starts to brown on top.
- If making meatballs, wet hands and form slightly squashed balls about two inches in diameter. Pan fry in olive oil, browning both sides. The meatballs may also be oven baked.
- Serve with sauce of your choice.
