Symptoms And Signs of Breast Implant Illness
Breast Implant Illness is not determined by a specific brand, or type of implant that you have. It occurs in all brands, both smooth and textured, and in both saline and silicone implants. Because breast implants usually affect your whole body health, there are many various symptoms that can that can spread completely throughout the body.
Many patients experience a foreign body immune response. Certain genetic markers are associated with patients being ill in the first year of implantation and some are predisposed to a higher sensitivity to silicone.
Symptoms can be multi-faceted and come from auto-immune dysfunction, auto-immune symptom flare ups, endocrine system issues, chemical toxicity, neurological problems, and metabolic symptoms.
If you find yourself having many of these symptoms, please do more research and look into explant.
The sooner that you can get the foreign bodies out, the earlier you can work on getting your health back. Stop spending all of your time and money on scans, tests, and multiple diagnoses by a list of specialists. After explant you can get back to being balanced. Gut health, heart health, mental health, and whole body health.
There is not currently a test to diagnose breast implant illness. We can eventually rule out other conditions with inflammatory symptoms such as MS, or Lyme disease. And after much investigation and research, and many specialists, removing the implants and seeing if this relieves any symptoms for the patient.
I did it more for various physical problems after 5 years of different physical, and occupational therapists. I wanted to get them out just knowing how toxic they were. Not to mention the pain and symptoms. Any relief of symptoms was a blessing. I am very thankful for every blessing, and there have been many.
