When I was doing my internship in the ’90’s I noticed with dismay that many of my female patients with autoimmune disease, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia also had breast implants. And when they had them removed, or explanted, they got better!
Today this phenonmenon has a name- Breast Implant Illness or BII. Breast implants, whether they are saline or silicone, are encapsulated in silicone. This plastic sac and its materials are foreign bodies and the body’s immune system can reject them. That’s only one of the problems. Leaking or ruptured breast implants, which some sources say are up to 90% of them by year 15-20, are associated with Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Raynouds, Lupus, Scleroderma, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.
In addition, the FDA first identified a risk of Breast Implant Associated Non-Hogkins Lymphoma (not breast cancer but a cancer of the immune system) in 2011 but described the risk and incidence as very low. Since then the World Health Organization designated this as a T-cell lymphoma. As the rates of this rare cancer have risen quickly in the last 10 years, researchers are now calling it an emerging and compelling medical challenge.
Reports and photos of mold growing on or in removed breast implants have also made the rounds, and doctors entrenched in the biotoxin illness realm say its like having sick building syndrome right inside of your body. As every environmental medicine doctor knows, in the case of mold, you must remove the patient from the source of mold. And if the mold is inside of you, this simply can’t be done.
One of the top environmental medicine doctors in the US also tested the blood of his sickest patients who had breast implants and discovered many chemicals- the carcinogenic solvents tri-chloroethylene (TCE) and benzene among them.
Other routes of exposure to toxins and foreign material for the body are Botox (which contains a black box warning- the most serious warning that the FDA gives a pharmaceutical product), fillers, and the wide variety of chemicals that even normal use of skin care and makeup entail.
Clearly in the area of beauty enhancements, there are risks and toxins involved that are not discussed. That’s where the Non-Toxic Beauty Revolution Summit comes in with my friend and fellow Orange County denizen, Diane Kazer.
Diane, who suffered from Breast Implant Illness herself, is ready to illuminate the truth about what beauty is and isn’t getting to the heart of what’s literally killing women in the name of beauty.
She’s here to help you by sharing what she learned.
The Non-Toxic Beauty Revolution will help you with:
● Identifying toxins in beauty products and procedures
● Transitioning to self-love and body acceptance
● Using diet and detox to build your beauty
● Understanding how breast implants impact your health
● Recovering from breast implant illness
● Aging gracefully — inside and out
● And so much more!
It’s beyond time for this important conversation!
It’s time to get the truths about non-toxic beauty out there into the world, into the minds and hearts of women everywhere.
Time to come together on one truth.
I am honored to be one of the experts interviewed for this ground-breaking summit.
ONLY 2% of women think they’re beautiful. Women are on a constant treadmill to “buy their beauty,” and it truly is killing them.
The average woman puts over 100 toxins on her skin every day, some of it is absorbed right into her body.
Babies are born with over 250 chemicals in them before they have even taken their first breath.
Everything we eat, apply and inject into our bodies could set off illness at any given moment (and can age us more quickly!) — women are literally dying to be beautiful!
Join me and learn how to transition to self-love and body acceptance and what you can do RIGHT NOW to build your beauty naturally!
I hope to see you on the FREE online Non-toxic Beauty Summit so save your seat here!
