What your surgeon doesn’t want you to know: The Truth About Breast Implants

Breast Implant Illness


Your doctor likely doesn’t know about it, your surgeon didn’t warn you about it, and implant manufacturers are hiding and denying it.


Yet, it’s affecting tens of thousands of women around the world right now.


What do you do when you have 50+ unexplained symptoms, illnesses and ailments that NO doctor or test can help you with? What do you do when you find a group of women who all have the same symptoms as you and the only common denominator is that you ALL have breast implants?



At the end of this past year, I decided to remove my implants.


It was a last resort, but it was the ONLY thing left to try to heal.
I had spent years denying that they could be the root cause of all of my mystery illnesses.
But, it was the last thing left that could explain what I was suffering through.


I am her.
I am the 18 year old girl who feels the pressure to change her perfect body
I am the exotic dancer who feels like she won’t have a job if her body doesn’t match her colleagues’
I am the breast cancer survivor who had to undergo a double mastectomy and simply wants to feel feminine again
I am the mama who wants her pre baby body back
I am every woman.
I am her. And she is me.


There are as many reasons to change our bodies as there are women on this planet. We as a society need to treat our women better. Women are goddesses and deserve to be treated as nothing less.


When I first began my journey to explant, I truly wasn’t sure how or what to say, or IF I even wanted to share something this personal, but when I thought about my 2 daughters, my sisters, my 32 year old self, every mama out there, every woman out there…I knew I HAD to share this. For them. For me. For us. Having a public voice, means I have a responsibility to share my journey and my truth.




Every woman needs to know. Every human needs to know.

If this can save even one person from what I’ve endured, it will be worth it. 



When I first heard about “breast implant illness” also known as BII, it was about 2 years ago through a dear friend sending me a link via text. (Thank you angel friend) I read it, and then dismissed it. That’s not a thing after all, is it? …But a lightbulb had gone off in my body even though my brain wasn’t willing yet to cooperate. I had been suffering (mostly silently) since 2013. Silently, because I had no idea what was actually wrong with me. It was terrifying.


My brain and body had been tormenting me for 5 years with no obvious link or explanation in sight. Test, after test, after test, kept coming back “normal” according to my doctors. I tested for EVERYTHING. Hormones, depression, illness, disease. Everything I could think of. I knew something wasn’t right. I didn’t feel like ME. I honestly felt like I was slowly dying. I’ve always known myself, my brain, my body really, really well and I’ve always had an incredible sense of intuition around my health. [I caught my own melanoma diagnosis at age 22 when 3 different dermatologists missed it.] So, when my declining health kept on its downward spiral and more and more symptoms kept layering on, I felt so very isolated. I knew in my gut something wasn’t right. But I had no answers and no support in finding out what it was. Still I kept searching. This past year my health took an even deeper turn for the worse.


This year I also happened to stumbled on a Facebook group called “Breast Implant Illness and Healing by Nicole” that’s now comprised of over 60,000 + members (some of whom I also personally know and love) who were ALL listing the same symptoms as me. I had almost every one (50) of the 70+ symptoms of breast implant illness. It’s a slow poisoning from the inside out, and it’s not only physical, it’s mental too. It’s torture. I felt like my body and mind were betraying me at an epic level. It was such a relief to know I wasn’t alone, AND to know I could still trust myself to find the truth. Always advocate for your own health – you are and always will be your BEST healer.


Breast implant illness is CHEMICAL POISONING, and it can present in many different ways, and differently in each person as well.


 Some symptoms of BII include:
  • BIA-ALCL cancer
  • Fatigue
  • Brain fog
  • Memory loss
  • Missing words
  • Back and neck pain
  • Nerve pain
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Pain in the arms, shoulders hands
  • Food sensitivities
  • Dry skin
  • Rashes on the skin
  • Yellowing of the eyes
  • Dulling of the skin
  • Weight gain/inflammation
  • Candida
  • Hair loss
  • Suicidal thoughts or actions
  • Loss of mental clarity
  • IBS
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Thyroid and adrenal problems
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Slow recovery from illness
  • Recurring infections
  • Cognitive dysfunction
  • Heart or chest Pain
  • Feeling like you are dying
  • and many many more…


 Had I known before going through surgery (to get implants 5 years ago) about the TRUE dangers and risks, I never would have done it. I wasn’t a body hater, and I wasn’t insecure – I just wanted my pre baby body back. I can honestly say, I BARELY made it out alive. Now, I’m just so grateful for my body exactly as it was designed.


No type of breast implants are safe. Not saline, not silicone, not gel, not smooth, not textured…NONE.


All breast implants contain: CARCINOGENS, HEAVY METALS, NEUROTOXINS and lots more nasty stuff…and they are then sewn into our bodies over top of our two most precious and vital organs, our heart and lungs.
Other ingredients include: formaldehyde, talcum powder, lacquer thinner, benzene, urethane, just to list a few.


Being in Health & Wellness for the past decade, you’d think I would have known. But we are told they are “safe”, by the very people who are meant to advocate for our health. And we are sold these toxic bags of death that immediately wage war on our bodies and immune systems for the benefit of the manufacturers and doctors/surgeons who sell them. Anyone who knows me, knows I refuse to even take an Advil for pain, or cold medication for cold symptoms. Aside from the toxic soup these implants are made from – having them in my body felt out of alignment to me for so many more reasons.




If you are suffering from unexplained symptoms, are considering implants or know anyone who is PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE share this post with them or just google “breast implant illness” first. Knowing what I now know, I would NEVER have gotten them 5 years ago, or ever.


Our bodies are FUCKING BRILLIANT, but they need our cooperation. 


I explanted on Friday, December 21, 2018.
The toxic death bags are out.

And let me tell you, the HEAL is REAL! Upon waking from surgery, 99% of my symptoms had completely disappeared IMMEDIATELY. The only ones I can’t say for sure yet are whether my hair will fully grow back and how fast the inflammation weight will come down – those 2 will take time. Otherwise, I’m floored at how our bodies know what to do in order to heal.
