During graduate school at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, she specialized in autism spectrum disorders and led her thesis research in food aversions and nutrient intake in children with ASD.

There are very few dietitians specializing in ASD across the country, which makes accessibility extremely low. Because of this, she offers video and phone consults to parents and individuals all over the nation to increase the reach of nutrition therapy and nutrition education for families and individuals affected by ASD. She is extremely knowledgeable about autism in relations to diet, biomedical interventions, food selectivity, food sensitivities, gastrointestinal disorders, and even nutrigenetics.

We’re sitting down with Austin Thermography owner, Gabi Shannan, to talk about this mammogram alternative – breast thermogrpahy! Have you heard of this?

Breast Thermography

  • What is thermography?
  • What can it do for a breast cancer screening?
  • Who can do it? Who can’t do it?
  • What does it show?
  • Cost
  • Is it safe?
  • So much more!

About Gabi Shannan

Gabi holds a BA in Architecture, but discovered her passion for whole-person wellness after meeting her chiropractor/nutritionist husband in 2003. When her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, and a dear friend died at age 42 as a result of breast cancer, Gabi began to research breast cancer screening methods and was led to thermography. Upon learning about its numerous benefits, but finding the availability of thermographic screening facilities in the Austin area were limited to a few traveling technicians from other cities, she determined to establish a full-time local facility so men and women of the Austin area could more easily access medical thermographic imaging. Gabi is a Certified Thermographic Technician, as well as the owner of Austin Thermography.
