Have you had breast implants and now are experiencing symptoms of toxicity. There have been concerns ofr years that silicone implants can rupture and cause auto-immune disorders. Silicone gel filled implants are no longer legal for plastic surgeons to place in a person’s body, but women still travel to countries where they are legal, sometimes with effects on the immune system.
These implants were replaced with saline filled implants but they have also been known to cause auto-immune disorders. They also cause hardening of the breast and other cosmetic problems that were also typical of silicone filled implants.
Breast Implant Concerns
The classic concern with impamts is that the contentsmay rupture and cause autoimmune diseases such as scleroderma and lupus erythematosus. Both diseases are fatal.
Appearance-wise some women experience capsular contracture, which is the shrinking of the scar tissue around the implant. This can cause painful hardening of the breast or a distortion its appearance.
Another risk to implant surgery is the formation of calcium deposits in the tissue that surrounds the implants. This causes the breasts to become rock hard and there may be pain and infection as well.
Sometimes the implant can shift around. This can result in an implant with unnatural look. This is sometimes referred to as migrating breast implants.
Loss of nipple sensation is also common, especially if the incision point for the implants was made around the nipple area.
An x-ray machine cannot read through implants. The plastic inserts interfere with mammography readings and therefore making it more difficult to detect breast cancer.
It is also not a good idea to get breast implants if you are planning on breastfeeding. Although the implants themselves do not interfere with the process the breasts are often compressed in a way that encourages less milk production.
Breast implant surgery also has many known risks that are commonly associated with any type of surgery including complications from general anesthesia, infection, hematomas, and skin tissue death resulting from the treatments.
Toxic Effects of Breast Plants
People who may have cause for concern about their implants may experience autoimmune-like disorders such as swelling of the joints, swollen glands, fatigue, headaches, muscle weakness, rash, nausea, vomiting, hair loss and swelling of the hands and feet.
If you have any of these problems, there are tests that can be done to detect levels of antibodies to silicone that presumably indicate a leaking or ruptured implant and there is nutritional support and a lifestyle protocol that can help with auto-immune disorders of all kinds.
