The Hidden Dangers Of Breast Implants

Breast implants stimulate a chronic foreign body inflammatory response. Both saline and silicone implants have a slow leakage of silicone/heavy metals/chemicals/toxins referred to as “gel bleed,” they also commonly develop biofilm on their surfaces and oxidise in the body contributing to oxidative stress. With saline implants there is an added issue that many of the saline valves allow body fluid and tissue in which creates colonisation of microorganisms inside the implant, which can form mould and mycotoxins.

Some of the first signs of illness may include: fatigue, cognitive dysfunction (brain fog, memory loss), muscle aches, joint pain, hair loss, dryness of the lips, mouth, eyes, hair & skin, recurring infections, digestive issues, rashes, food sensitivities and anxiety.

Breast implant illness occurs in both saline and silicone implants and is a very varied illness. Once the implant is put into the body it creates an artificial disturbance and interference within the body, starting with the immune system and then creating a cascade of systemic dysregulation.

There is no single test to diagnose breast implant illness therefore symptoms can be used to recognise the pattern of characteristics prevalent with breast implants. In all honesty, if you have breast implants and if you aren't feeling well and cannot put your finger on what it is AND cannot seem to feel better. I would be looking into an explant surgery asap. I would also be working with a holistic health practitioner in regards to clearing the body of any residue ailments and toxins.
