Why do Breast Implants Cause
Breast Implant Illness Symptoms?

Why do Breast Implants Cause Breast Implant Illness Symptoms?

Breast implant illness is not 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 large foreign objects implanted in your chest over fragile organs and glands which prompt a foreign body immune response as your body mounts a battle against the implants causing immune cell deficits and eventually autoimmune symptoms and diseases.  Immune cell deficits allow various infections to thrive in us which can be either bacterial, viral, fungal or parastical in nature and cause many of our symptoms.

Next, the array of toxic chemicals and heavy metals in silicone which are known endocrine disruptors, inflammatory, carcinogenic, cytotoxic and neurotoxic poison our fragile endocrine gland system, our immune system, our gut health and create toxicity in our organs and glands.   

With saline breast implants there is also the added element that many of the saline ports collect blood and tissue which can mold and these fungal organisms can cross from the implant fill valve directly into the implant and colonize the inside of the implant. Mold organisms produce metabolites know as biotoxins which are very toxic to us. 

The interior of all capsules is a perfect place for infections to grow and the inside of capsules necrotize over time.  Textures add another layer of toxicity as they soak up body fluids and provide a perfect space for microorganisms to reside.  Textures also flake off and are carried away by immune cells to lymph and aggravate the lymphatic system perhaps even causing cancer of lymph and immune system.  

Many of us also have pathogens or parasites in our gut due to bad gut health and even past our gut as they cross the gut barrier due to leaky gut and because there is little immune opposition to them due to immune deficits. Due to poor gut health we cannot digest our foods and are depleted of many necessary nutrients and due to autoimmune processes our guts and bodies are full of inflammation.

    You have just made a ghost about tap my shoulder and say THIS IS IT. My Mom. She had this and she just wanted the doctors to find out what was wrong with her. I remember taking her to a specialist trying to figure out where her constant pain and numbness in her legs back arms eventually numbness and pain everywhere was coming from. While on every opiate pfyetnol patches and countless other drugs she never wanted to take. I remember her crying and she never cried, she just wanted them to listen to her and fix her she didn’t want anymore drugs she just wanted the pain to stop or them to fix her instead of making her feel like she was crazy. A hypochondriac. Or just some stupid diagnosis she knew was bs with drugs that wouldn’t help her. She was at an all time low, she wasnt even able to work as a waitress bc eventually she could not even walk right anymore or at least not without being in excruciating pain. She couldn’t sit lay or stand bc everything hurt her. I could not even be around her or watch her try to fall asleep bc it was so sad to see such a strong woman, my mom, in the pain she was in and I couldn’t watch her like that. One of my memories was her asking me to sleep outside on the pool deck under the stars bc she knew I loved to do that and it would possibly help her back pain enough so she could maybe fall asleep. It was a memory I thought would be a good one until she finally started falling asleep without the moaning pain… And started to vomit while laying on her back and began to choke on her vomit and could not breathe. I was screaming for her bf for her to get up and holding her back up best I could while freaking out entirely. I was a wreck, scarred, scared. And this was not the only episode. The doc office were the worst. Bc she just wanted them to fix her. She was young 51 when she passed. She went to sleep and never woke up turns it she took her mother’s liquid morphine who had just died from cancer …to help ease her pain ..n like I said she hated drugs, it was not like her, she had a paper bag filled with drugs from numerous docs but never took them bc they made her sick and didn’t take the pain away. She probably didn’t know the drugs power and was snoring all morning until my little brother stopped hearing her checked and she was no longer breathing. My mom had every symptom. Reading the comments here I just wish she had read them before she started feeling like she was dying and there was no one who understood it, or believed her. Someone who would not have called her crazy bc she was not she was suffering for a very long time. And just wanted it to stop. I know she didn’t mean to take her life bc my father did when I was 15 n she was so mad at him she would’ve never ever done it intentionally. But she just knew it helped her sleep hey pain off. So take it from a girl who doesn’t have her mom to call or to get a hug from. That this illness is very real and if it’s not too late for u or someone you know, spread the word to is very real and I am convinced she had this. You have a chance I or my mother never will. That is too get your life back, so please do research and spread the word bc I wish she could’ve known this bc I think I might have still had her to call or just would have my mom still if she only would have read this post.

    Thank you for the information and please do something about this if you have someone who is suffering, you may save a life and your lucky to have that chance.
