In part two of our discussion, Danielle Valoras returns to dig into the science behind breast implants, why they cause some women to develop symptoms of Breast Implant Illness, and what we can do to hold the FDA, manufacturers and surgeons accountable.
Despite increasing evidence that breast implants can and do cause complications and immune responses for many women, too many providers still dismiss their concerns.
If you’re experiencing a shift in your health and wellbeing following breast implant surgery, know that you are not alone. It is not all in your head. And there are compassionate providers out there who will help you navigate your choices so you can get your life back.
Listen to the full episode to hear:
- How breast implants interact with your immune system, regardless of if you develop symptoms.
- Why rupture isn’t the only risk factor for breast implant contents to get into your system.
- How even small amounts of platinum leaching from an implant impact your GI tract.
- Why even saline implants expose you to silicone.
- Diagnostics to ask for and a functional medicine approach if you think your implants may be impacting your health.
