If You Have Been Told You Are Crazy And Need Anti Depressants...   Study This Page!

Three hundred thousand women will  get breast implants this year, making it the number one cosmetic surgery in the U.S.

Research shows the typical breast implant patient has high self-esteem and good mental health, higher and better than the general population.

According to implant manufacturers, satisfaction rates top the 83-97 percentile range, excellent results for any kind of surgery.  

So why would some women with breast implants have a higher rate of suicide than women who don't have them?

YOUR NOT CRAZY!!!

Symptoms of Breast Implant Illness Exist

Have you been slowly becoming more and more sick, filled with fatigue, aches and pains daily, brain fog, body temperature spikes, stomach and digestive issues, loss of hair???


Have you been to doctor after doctor who has treated you like you were crazy?       To the point that you almost thought you might be crazy...     Doctors telling you that you need anti depressants, but you know your not depressed, pill after pill and nothing helps.  Only to be frustrated and still having all the same symptoms day after day.  You can't engage with family and friends because you are so exhausted.


Well you are not crazy!!!  Breast Implant Illness is a very real issue and some of the symptoms are listed to the right side.

My guess is that you have many of these symptoms.  

Please review the videos and information collected below.  I hope that this will help you in your search for a better life!  

WHAT THEY DIDN'T TELL US THEY WERE PUTTING IN OUR BODIES...

If your doctor handed you this list of "ingredients" - - Would you put them in your body?        Of course not!!!

The next time a friend tells you she is getting implants, show her this list and then ask her that same question.

Breast Implant Illness is a real issue. It is affecting women and they don't have a clue what is wrong with their health.

What Am I Doing Wrong?

I eat healthy, try to stay fit, do all the right things, but I feel miserable everyday...

Young women and mothers between 20 & 60 years old, should not feel like they are 80 or 90 years old with constant aches and pains and joints that move today but not tomorrow.  Women this age don't have to take naps during the day to function.  Or they cannot play with their children or keep the house tidy because of the chronic exhaustion.  Or be driving in the car and have sudden anxiety attacks or heart palpitations.  Or a metal taste in the mouth, as if your sucking on a nickel.  They  carefully watch what they eat, only to have failing bodies.  Dieting is a loss cause because the body is concentrating 24 hrs a day on fighting off the chemicals in the implants, that it cannot shift gears to loose weight, because you are in a constant state of "fight or flight" mode.  The cortisol levels are thru the roof and the hormones are unbalanced.  At this age, women do not loose their hair or have chronic stomach issues and all types of allergies to foods and everything else around them.  Women at this age should not be thinking 24 hrs a day about, "How am I going to make it through the rest of the day"...  Only to feel the same way the next morning when you wake up.

Although your doctor keeps telling you that "You are fine".

HEAVY METALS TOXICITY FROM DENTAL AND BREAST IMPLANTS

If you feel you may be heavy metal poisoned from dental, fish, breast implants or another source please read Andy Cutler’s book: Amalgam Illness: Diagnoses and Treatment . It is an excellent read about detoxing mercury and other heavy metals safely using oral chelation.

PALEO AUTO-IMMUNE PROTOCOL DIET

If you have auto-immune symptoms, the Paleo Auto-immune Protocol Diet could be very helpful in minimizing your symptoms and modulating your immune system responses while healing and recovering. Information on the Paleo Auto-Immune Protocol Diet can be found here: https://www.thepaleomom.com/start-here/the-autoimmune-protocol/

MTHFR GENETIC DEFECT 

In 2003 the Human Genome Project revealed an important gene to our detoxification, the MTHFR, is defective and mutated in many people. When it’s working correctly the MTHFR gene produces the MTHFR enzyme. The MTHFR enzyme works with folate vitamins (B9, folic acid), breaking down and converting to the amino acids homocysteine and methionine which is used by your body to make proteins, utilize antioxidants, and to assist your liver to process fats. Methionine helps with depression and inflammation. It also helps convert estradiol (E2) into estriol (E3). Methionine is converted in your liver into SAM-e, which is anti-inflammatory, supports your immune system, helps produce and breakdown your brain chemicals serotonin, dopamine and melatonin, and is involved in the growth, repair and maintenance of your cells. So a proper methylation pathway means you will be able to eliminate toxins and heavy metals easier than if it is defective and mutated.

When it is not working correctly the MTHFR gene only functions at 40% to 80% of its capacity which means you won’t break down toxins or heavy metals very well and you could find yourself accumulating toxins and heavy metals. The defective gene does not break down folate vitamins properly which can cause high homocysteine and homocysteine is poorly converted to glutathione which is your body’s master detoxifier and so you are more susceptible to toxin buildup.

How to treat it? You can’t change a defective gene but you can help it do its job better and minimize problems. Some find their folic acid lab test levels are high (it’s one of several folate vitamins) since a defect in the gene prevents your body from using it, it goes high. The recommended solution is avoid supplements and many processed foods with folic acid. Healthy foods that contain folate should be okay, as would be the active form of folate called methylfolate as a supplement, also called 5-MTHF (5-methyltetrahydrofolate). B12 might also be high, so patients tend to avoid the synthetic supplemental version of B12 called cyanocobalamin and instead favor the more useable methylcobalamin (methylB12), which will help break down those high levels. But the methylB12 will be used by your body in detoxing you from toxins, so you may need to start low to avoid detox side effects like fatigue, achiness, etc. Another good B-vitamin is the methyl version of B6, called P-5-P.

Dr. Ben Lynch feels that “repairing the digestive system and optimizing the flora should be one of the first steps in correcting a methylation deficiency”, and that especially includes treating candida because of the toxins it releases, inhibiting proper methylation. Some experts recommend eating clean, such as Paleo or the GAPS diet. Avoiding exposure to toxins is important. Minerals play a key role in several enzymatic functions. Vitamin C helps reduce oxidants. Molybdenum (500 mcg) helps break down excess sulfates and sulfites

High copper and low zinc is a common finding when you have an MTHFR defect–a high level of copper, which will conversely mean your zinc levels will fall. And since the ratio of these two metals is highly important, correcting the problem is crucial, since high copper can be related to hyperactivity, depression, headaches, acne, frequent colds due to lowered immunity, sensitive skin and/or bruising, worsening hypothyroid, adrenal stress and more.

7 Of The Most Potent Antifungal Foods







JANUARY 12, 2018 BY ASHLEY HOAR

Detox Regimen

Morning upon wakening:

Large glass (probably about 24oz) of warm water with 1/2 lemon, 2tbsp raw organic apple cider vinegar and 1tsp of Schinoussa sea vegetables. It contains: spirulina, E3live, chlorella, blue green algae, chlorophyll and iodine. These all stimulate detoxification.

2 serrapeptase capsules on empty stomach (serrapeptase is a powerful natural enzyme from silk worms. I HIGHLY recommend researching this stuff and reading more about it. It essentially breaks down scar tissue, reduces inflammation and speeds up tissue repair. I can't say enough good about this miracle enzyme.

With breakfast

2 5-HTP sprays by Physica (I have been taking this for over 6 months and have noticed a huge difference in my anxiety, panic attacks and depression)

5 sprays of Garden of life vitamin D (Vitamin D is essential in healing and hormones, I have always taken it and continue to do so)

5 sprays of Garden of life vitamin C (Vitamin C is essential in reducing inflammation and boosting immune system)

1 tsp Genestra vitamin B-complex (Again, I have been taking this for years, B vitamins are important for detoxification, nervous system and metabolism of carbohydrates)

With lunch

1 scoop AOR inositol

3/4 tsp MSM powder

Both MSM and inositol initiate silicone detoxification. Inositol is often sometimes called Vitamin B8 although it is not technically a vitamin. It helps with nerve function (Much needed after explant, nerves are stretched from the implants originally being inside, once removed there is often nerve damage) MSM has so many more benefits as well like muscle pain and spasms, hair and skin growth and helps gut health issues.

With dinner

1 Enzymedica digestive enzyme (I east dinner late and often eat meat at this time so I like to help my body out with an enzyme to break down my food and absorb my nutrients)

1 ATP Estro control (Implants have seriously messed up my hormonal health over the last 3 years and I suffer from high estrogen, this brand makes a great formula that effectively promotes healthy estrogen metabolism, it contains DIM and an added bonus turmeric which is amazing for inflammation too!)

At bedtime

1 Garden of life ultra 90 billion (Just a favourite brand of mine, probiotics are definitely needed for restoring the gut, and healthy gut flora) ***update*** I am now just taking a 25 billion probiotic. The 90 is very strong and potent, I only used that for a month after surgery. IMO you don't need that high of probiotics for that long of a period of time

2 CanPrev 5-htp capsules (Another form of 5-htp tryptophan that has really helped with me with anxiety, depression, panic attacks and mood stabilization. It also helps me sleep better)

Progesterone cream (This natural bio-identical progesterone cream is made for me specially by my integrative doctor. Silicone is an endocrine disruptor and strips the body of progesterone and causes other hormonal imbalances)

Magnesium spray on my feet! (helps me sleep and raises cellular magnesium levels)

*I sometimes also take Aloe vera juice for digestive support on days I feel I need it, and L-Theanine for high stress days. I also take an amino acid complex when I lift heavy (which I currently not doing for a while lol)

***update*** I have slowly started incorporating weight training again! yay!!! At 14 weeks post-op.

**As you can probably notice most of what I take is in liquid form. This is for better absorption and personally preference. What I can't find in liquid I open the capsule and swish it around with water and swallow. I have tasted some nasty things but I much prefer this way and...I can't swallow pills lol.

***Once cleared to do so, I will also be taking regular epsom salts baths to stimulate detox, sauna about 4-5 times a week, hot/cold showers and dry skin brushing to promote circulation, stimulate lymphatic system and again detoxification.

***UPDATE***

I have been cleared to bath, sauna, massage, workout and all the good stuff! I have been dry brushing and having a 20-30 min sauna sessions every single day. After I shower I either massage or perform cupping on my breasts. I recently just bought this glass cupping set (I avoid plastic and silicone products) on amazon and its amazing! You can google how to do this. Its really easy and is great for breaking up scar tissue, firming skin/stretch marks, cellulite and detoxification.

https://www.amazon.com/Face-Glass-Vacuum-Cupping-Therapy/dp/B0109M5O2M/ref=sr_1_4_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1515499169&sr=1-4&keywords=glass+cupping

Back to supplements, other than what listed I really like to get all the micro nutrients, antioxidants, minerals and anti-inflammatories from real, whole organic food. I eat a ton of ginger and turmeric for inflammation, garlic for immunity, brazil nuts for selenium, a large variety of greens and so on. Now this brings me to the next part of my detox, a LOW mycotoxin/antifunfal diet!
