On this episode of the She's Healthy Podcast, I have the privilege of talking to Kristen Barry, the inspiring owner of Space Coast Thermography in Rockledge, Florida. Kristen shares her journey, from a breast cancer diagnosis missed by three mammograms to becoming a beacon of hope for women seeking non-invasive and proactive approaches to breast health.
Kristen holds a BA, MA and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and worked in this arena for 20 years. After her breast cancer diagnosis she began a deep dive into researching ways to enhance her health, prevent reoccurrence, reverse the side effects and help other women avoid going through what she had to.
She became involved in and ran several support groups in Brevard County, FL and attended numerous national conferences, and used herself as a "guinea pig" for many natural treatment modalities.
In 2018 she opened Space Coast Thermography and she continues to help educate women on this radiation-free and compression-free tool.
In this episode, Kristen delves into her transformative journey and the profound insights she gained along the way. Here are three key takeaways from our conversation:
Safe, Affordable, Non-Invasive Breast Health Monitoring: Kristen emphasizes the importance of accessible and non-invasive methods for monitoring breast health. Her story underlines the limitations of traditional mammograms and the need for alternative options. Space Coast Thermography provides a radiation-free and compression-free tool, ensuring women can track their breast health without discomfort or potential harm.
The Power of Informed and Proactive Health Choices: Kristen's experience urges women to take charge of their health actively. She highlights the significance of being informed and proactive rather than relying solely on conventional healthcare systems. By sharing her story and expertise, Kristen empowers women to become advocates for their well-being, encouraging them to explore safer and more effective approaches to breast health.
Thermography: Your Personalized Risk Assessment: Kristen introduces us to the incredible capabilities of thermography, a cutting-edge technology that offers personalized risk assessments. An abnormal infrared image is a crucial indicator of high risk for developing breast cancer. Through Space Coast Thermography, Kristen is dedicated to providing women with a powerful tool to understand their own bodies better, offering them a chance to take control of their health and reduce the risk of breast cancer.
Kristen's story is one of resilience, transformation, and empowerment. Her journey from a breast cancer diagnosis to becoming a champion for breast health awareness is inspiring. In our conversation, she shares the importance of non-invasive methods, proactive health choices, and the exceptional potential of thermography. By listening to Kristen, we hope that women can find the strength and knowledge to prioritize their breast health and reduce the risks associated with breast cancer.
