Implant Illness: Get Help, Detox and Feel Well Again

Apr 30, 2023 02:00PM ● By Jessica Scofield-Chichester, PhD, Rev
Breast augmentation has been one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for women over the last few decades. Women choose to get breast implants for various reasons, ranging from cosmetic enhancement to post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. However, recent studies and reports suggest that breast implants can cause a range of health issues, commonly known as “implant illness”.

Implant illness is a term used to describe a range of symptoms and health problems that women with breast implants can experience. There are over 80 symptoms you could experience, including fatigue, brain fog, joint pain, rashes, hair loss, autoimmune disorders and more. Implant illness is not recognized as a formal diagnosis by the medical community, and the symptoms can be similar to those of other illnesses, making it difficult to diagnose.

Signs and Symptoms of Implant Illness
The signs and symptoms of implant illness can vary from person to person, and some women may not experience any symptoms at all. However, some of the most common symptoms reported by women with breast implants include:
• Fatigue
Women with implant illness often report feeling fatigued and run down, even after getting enough sleep.
Brain fog. Brain fog refers to a feeling of confusion or forgetfulness, and it can make it difficult for women to concentrate or remember things.
• Joint pain. Women with implant illness may experience joint pain, stiffness or swelling.
Rashes. Some women may develop rashes or other skin irritations after
getting breast implants.

• Hair loss. Hair loss or thinning is an other common symptom of implant illness.
• Autoimmune disorders. Women with breast implants may be at a higher risk of developing autoimmune disorders such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis or Sjogren’s syndrome.

How to Get Better and Heal
If you suspect that you may be experiencing implant illness, the first step is to see a qualified healthcare professional who believes in implant illnesses. It is also essential to find a qualified and experienced doctor who believes in breast implant illness, has an experienced background in explants and who is able to perform the procedure well. There are many sites online to help find resources for explant doctors.

While there is limited scientific research on this topic, anecdotal evidence suggests that many women experience significant relief from their symptoms after explant surgery. According to a survey conducted by the Breast Implant Victim Advocacy (BIVA) group, which included responses from over 2,000 women who had undergone explant surgery, 85 percent of the respondents reported that their health had improved after having their implants removed.

Detoxification and Lifestyle Upgrades
A good doctor may recommend a full detoxification program that includes dietary changes, supplements and other therapies. Finding a wellness center that specializes in helping women detoxify their bodies and improve their overall health and well-being is at the core of health, longevity and transformation. Some therapies include:
Infrared Sauna Therapy: Infrared sauna therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses heat to help the body detoxify. This therapy can help improve circulation, reduce inflammation and promote relaxation.
BEMER Therapy: BEMER therapy has five world patents and uses specialized pulsed electromagnetic fields to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. This therapy can help improve circulation, reduce pain and inflammation and promote overall health and well-being.
Ionic Foot Detox: Ionic foot detox is a gentle and non-invasive therapy that helps the body eliminate toxins through the feet. This therapy can help reduce inflammation, improve circulation and promote overall health.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy: Lymphatic drainage therapy is a gentle massage technique that helps improve lymphatic flow and remove toxins from the body. This therapy can help reduce inflammation, improve circulation and promote overall health.
Nutritional Counseling: Nutritional counseling is an essential part of any detoxification program. A professional can help you develop a healthy eating plan that supports your body’s natural detoxification processes.

These various devices work together to help balance out the different systems in the body. For example, the infrared sauna and BEMER therapy can help improve circulation and reduce inflammation, which can help promote overall health and well-being. The ionic foot detox and lymphatic drainage therapy can help the body eliminate toxins and improve lymphatic flow, which can help reduce inflammation and promote healing. Additionally, nutritional counseling can help you make healthier food choices and provide your body with the nutrients it needs to support its natural detoxification processes. 

By combining these services, it can provide a comprehensive and personalized approach to anti-aging and healing, as well as detoxification from implant illness. Scope out expert facilities in your area.
