Breast Implant Illness & Healing by Nicole
“Breast implant illness is not really to do with the brand or type of implant that you have. Breast implant illness occurs in all brands and both saline and silicone implants and is a very multifaceted illness.
For both saline and silicone breast implants a strong and immediate response to the silicone shell directly after implantation may be predicated by your genes specifically HLA B27, HLA DR52 and HLA DR53 which are genes associated with being ill in the first year after implantation and a higher sensitivity to silicone. Even if you don't have these specific genes your body will still respond to the fact that breast implants are huge foreign objects implanted in your chest near vital organs and glands and you will experience the usual foreign body immune response as your body mounts an all out war which causes immune deficits, immune dysfunction and eventually autoimmune symptoms and diseases.
Our overwhelmed immune system eventually switches over to attacking itself instead of attacking invaders. This is known as switching from TH1 dominance to TH2 dominance and it is when the immune system developes antibodies against itself instead of killer T-Cells to kill what it perceives to be abnormal cells. Eventually, both saline and silicone breast implants cause immune system failure by overwhelming the immune system and allowing various infections in the body to gain a foothold and cause many of our symptoms. These infections can be bacterial, viral, fungal or parastical. Next the approximate 40 toxic chemicals and array of heavy metals in silicone which are known endocrine disruptors poison our fragile endocrine system (thyroid, adrenals, and the other glands) and poison our immune system, poison our Thymus and poison our gut health and create toxicity in our organs and body.
With saline there is also the added element that many of the saline ports collect body fluid/tissue, mold and allow colonization of microorganisms and these organisms can even cross into the implant due to defective valves and colonize the implant. These microorganisms produce metabolites which are toxic to us known as biotoxins. The interior of all capsules is perfect place for infections to occur and grow and the inside of capsules necrotize in time. Many of us also have pathogens and parasites in our gut due to bad gut health and even past our gut as they inhabit our body because there is little immune opposition to them due to immune deficits. Due to poor gut health we cannot digest our foods and our due to autoimmune processes our guts and bodies are full of inflammation.
We could go on and on but as you can see saline and silicone implants profoundly damage our health in many ways.”
