Regrann from @breast_implant_illness - Regrann from @gretchenstewart_ - OK. This is about to get really awkward.
But, there is no way I can NOT share this with everything that I've learned. Even if my discomfort, or yours, saves just one person from suffering.
You see, I've recently had a huge breakthrough regarding my health. The final AHA moment. It's funny, I finally started writing my next book and then the floodgates opened. People and information and opportunities are coming to me. That's when I know I'm doing what I'm meant to.
Before I get weird, let me paint a brief picture. In my 20's I was tired. Exposure to Lyme, EBV, mold, HPV vaccine, divorce and ER/ICU nursing. But with all that, I was able to push through and ignore the fatigue.
In my 30's though, that's when I hit my wall and had some extreme ups and downs with my health. Here's where I'm about to get weird. Guess what the changed my life for the worse?? Breast implants.
Still with me? Good.
After a lifetime of insecurities of what God gave me, I surgically added toxic bags to my body like many other women do. What I didn't know at the time is about a thing called Breast Implant Illness. I didn't know that this was the final straw that sent my body into autoimmune crisis, inflammation, adrenal crash, postmenopausal hormones, debilitating pain, food intolerances, brain fog, extreme fatigue and more.
I'm in a group of over 42,000 women (yes, FORTY TWO THOUSAND and that is just who stumbled upon this one group) with similar (and even worse) consequences from implants. And thousands of women healing after getting them removed.
I had heard about BII, but didn't think it was me. I was fine. They were crazy. But more and more of my friends are getting theirs removed and healing and even reversing some of the long-term damage. I've seen some pretty amazing miracles after getting the implants removed.
So, now what?
I'm consulting with surgeons and planning on explanting as soon as I can (will have to be after my trip to Europe). I'm not sure how I ignored the fact I put bags of over 40 toxic chemicals near my heart, lungs, thymus gland. ( Full post cont'd on her page. )
