Reversing the Effects of Breast Implant Illness

Are your breast implants making you ill?

50,000 women have reported debilitating & life-altering symptoms

Given how beautifully breast implants enhance body contours to achieve a more attractive, appealing silhouette or reconstruct the breast area following a mastectomy, it’s no wonder more than 10 million women worldwide have chosen to undergo breast implant procedures. Yet, despite years of assertions that silicone implants are inert and safe, tens of thousands of women are experiencing, debilitating symptoms and illnesses that are being increasingly linked to breast implants.

What is Breast Implant Illness (BII)?

Breast implant illness is typically characterized by a vague tapestry of symptoms such as brain fog, chronic fatigue, joint pain, dry eyes, hair loss, or merely feeling poorly overall. These symptoms are often deceptive and confusing, making one feel like there may be other health issues or factors at play.

Because the FDA did not require public reporting of these types of breast implant problems, the assumption and the illusion of 100% safety prevailed. However, once reporting rules were implemented in 2017, the number of breast implant injury reports skyrocketed into the thousands.

At Valhalla Wellness & Medical Centers, we take an integrated approach to diagnosis and care; identifying the underlying cause of a patient’s symptoms and providing treatment that supports optimal health and function.

How breast implants may increase your risk of autoimmune disorders & other conditions

Whether filled with silicone or saline, breast implants can leak, break, or break down over time. Anyone of these situations can expose the body to harmful chemicals, heavy metals, silicones, free radicals (oxidative stress), and biotoxins that may create a toxic burden, destabilize the immune system, produce inflammation, and other health issues. While some people don’t appear to experience significant ill effects, for others, the consequences can be more severe and debilitating.

Complications may include the following conditions:

  • Autoimmune disorders such as Hashimoto's hypothyroidism, Sjorgren's syndrome, sarcoidosis, or systemic sclerosis
  • Infection
  • Cancer
  • Raynaud's Syndrome

According to statistics, the risk for women with breast implants developing an autoimmune disorder is 45% higher than those without implants. And, by all indications, cancers affecting the immune system in women with breast implants are also on the rise. Other types of breast cancers may also be harder to detect when implants are present.

Restoring wellness

At Valhalla Wellness & Medical Centers, our goal is to optimize your body’s capacity for healing. Wellness increases, beginning with healing on a cellular level. We provide treatment and therapy that supports reducing any toxic burdens and restoring immune system balance.

If the implants are causing the sickness, explant surgery must be performed with a specific procedure. An En Bloc Capsulectomy should be performed by an experienced surgeon.
