BREAST IMPLANT ILLNESS

WHAT IS BREAST IMPLANT ILLNESS?

Breast implant illness (BII) is a term used to describe a range of symptoms that some individuals attribute to their breast implants. These symptoms can vary widely and may include:

Fatigue, Headaches, Joint and muscle pain, Brain fog or cognitive difficulties, Skin rashes or changes, Inflammation, Weight Problems, Hair loss

Autoimmune-like symptoms (such as joint swelling, muscle weakness), Gastrointestinal problems, Anxiety or depression, Hormonal imbalances, Swollen lymph nodes

WHAT CAUSES BREAST IMPLANT ILLNESS?

Silicone toxicity: Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel or saline solution. While silicone implants are generally considered safe by regulatory agencies, there are concerns about the potential for silicone leakage or migration, leading to systemic symptoms in some individuals.

Immune reactions: It's hypothesised that some individuals may have immune reactions to the implant materials, leading to inflammation and systemic symptoms.

Biofilm formation: Biofilms are communities of bacteria that can form on the surface of implants. It's suggested that biofilms may trigger immune responses and contribute to symptoms in some cases.

HOW HBOT CAN HELP BREAST IMPLANT ILLNESS

Tissue Healing: HBOT can promote tissue healing by increasing oxygen delivery to the affected area. After breast implant removal surgery, HBOT may help in healing surgical wounds and reducing the risk of complications such as infections or delayed wound healing.

Reduction of Inflammation: Some individuals may experience inflammation or tissue damage associated with breast implant illness. HBOT has anti-inflammatory effects and may help reduce inflammation in affected tissues, potentially alleviating symptoms.

Improved Circulation: HBOT can enhance blood flow and circulation, which may aid in the removal of toxins and promote overall tissue health. This could potentially benefit individuals experiencing symptoms associated with breast implant illness.

Collagen Production: HBOT may stimulate collagen production, which is essential for skin and tissue regeneration. For individuals undergoing breast implant removal, HBOT might help in restoring the natural elasticity and appearance of the breast tissues.

Management of Complications: In some cases, breast implant removal surgery may lead to complications such as tissue necrosis or infection. HBOT could be considered as an adjunctive therapy to help manage these complications by supporting tissue healing and combating infection.

HOW RED LIGHT CAN HELP BREAST IMPLANT ILLNESS

Pain Management: Red light therapy has been shown to have analgesic (pain-relieving) effects by reducing inflammation and stimulating the release of endorphins. After breast implant removal surgery, red light therapy may help alleviate postoperative pain and discomfort.

Wound Healing: Red light therapy has been found to promote wound healing by enhancing cellular repair mechanisms, increasing collagen production, and improving circulation. It may help accelerate the healing of surgical incisions and reduce the risk of complications such as infection or delayed wound healing after breast implant removal surgery.

Reduction of Inflammation: Inflammation is a common symptom associated with breast implant illness and can persist even after implant removal surgery. Red light therapy has anti-inflammatory effects and may help reduce inflammation in the tissues surrounding the breast area, potentially alleviating symptoms.

Scar Reduction: Red light therapy has been studied for its ability to improve the appearance of scars by promoting collagen remodeling and reducing scar tissue formation. After breast implant removal surgery, red light therapy may help minimise the appearance of surgical scars and promote more aesthetically pleasing outcomes.

Improved Circulation: Red light therapy can enhance blood flow and circulation, which may aid in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues, as well as the removal of metabolic waste products. This can contribute to overall tissue health and healing following surgery.

HOW PEMF HEALING CAN HELP BREAST IMPLANT ILLNESS

Inflammation Reduction: Inflammation is a common symptom associated with BII. PEMF therapy has anti-inflammatory effects and may help reduce inflammation in the tissues surrounding the breast area, potentially alleviating symptoms such as swelling, redness, and discomfort.

Immune Modulation: Some individuals with BII report symptoms suggestive of autoimmune-like reactions. PEMF therapy has been shown to modulate immune responses, potentially helping to restore immune balance and alleviate symptoms related to immune dysfunction.

Stress Reduction: Chronic stress is known to exacerbate symptoms of various medical conditions, including those associated with BII. PEMF therapy has been shown to have stress-reducing effects by promoting relaxation and modulating the stress response, which may indirectly help improve overall wellbeing in individuals with BII.

Cellular Repair and Regeneration: PEMF therapy has been found to stimulate cellular repair mechanisms, enhance tissue regeneration, and promote the production of growth factors necessary for wound healing. This may help accelerate the healing process after breast implant removal surgery and mitigate any associated complications.

HOW INFRARED SAUNA CAN HELP BREAST IMPLANT ILLNESS

Detoxification: Infrared saunas can induce sweating, which may help the body eliminate toxins and metabolic waste products. Some proponents of infrared sauna therapy believe that it can aid in the removal of toxins associated with breast implants, potentially reducing symptoms of BII.

Improved Circulation: Infrared sauna therapy can increase blood flow and circulation, which may aid in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and promote tissue healing. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals recovering from surgery.

Immune Support: Some individuals with BII report symptoms suggestive of immune dysfunction. Infrared sauna therapy suggest that it may support immune function by promoting detoxification and reducing oxidative stress.

Stress Reduction: Chronic stress can exacerbate symptoms of various medical conditions, including those associated with BII. Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation and may help reduce stress levels, thereby improving overall wellbeing.
