More and more women are coming to realize that the cause of many of their otherwise unexplained symptoms is, in fact, their breast implants. This is something that we’re increasingly becoming aware of. That’s why many of us have made the decision to get our implants removed.
In this conversation, Lunden and I go over the complications that nobody told me about when I first got my breast implants. We explain what breast implant illness is and why your doctor may not be aware of it. With an increased knowledge of the risk of many ailments, ranging from food sensitivities to depression and cancer, many women are coming to the same conclusion that it’s time to say goodbye to our implants.
I also tell you how taking a close examination of my own health led me to the decision to get rid of my implants. There are some surprising lessons that I’ve learned throughout this journey, lessons that I’m ready to share with you all today.
