Fighting Chronic Lyme Disease

Saline Breast Implants Out

I know my posts have been quiet recently and this is why. After weeks of preparation, consultations with doctors, lab testing, interviews with surgeons, more testing, it’s finally done. My saline implants were explanted by Dr. Kolb in Atlanta last Friday, who is the nation’s leading expert on breast implant-related immune deficiency disorders. She has diagnosed and surgically removed implants from thousands of women who were suffering physically and could not get any answers from their regular doctors. Having any kind of breast implant can weaken the immune system sooner or later. But for Lyme patients struggling to recover from countless pathogens, it is absolutely imperative to eliminate any potential source that can harm the immune system.

Silicon gel implants contains more than three dozen chemicals, many of which the FDA wouldn’t allow on your dinner plate. Years ago I opted for saline implants instead, believing the marketing pitch of the time that they would always be safe and only require removal if visually deflated. Although the saline content is indeed considered safe, the man-made silicon shell is still a toxic source to the human body in the long term. Dr. Kolb immediately observed upon removal of my implants that the valves had been compromised and leakage had occurred even though externally they looked just fine. As Dr. Pierre Blais from Canada explains, once a valve is damaged, saline can be expelled during motion or squeezes (such as hugs) and replaced with body fluids along with all the “ills” such fluids may contain. In the worst cases, implants can become breeding grounds for serious conditions (refer to my earlier post on the subject).

The red flag for me was my recent blood test for mold and fungus. The results came back highly positive for 7 different species in my body – on top of everything else! Mold harboring is a key issue with contaminated breast implants according to Dr. Kolb. Many women (who were not Lyme sufferers) fully recovered from their crippling symptoms after their implants were removed and the mold toxicity was eradicated. A lot more is explained in her book, “The Naked Truth About Breast Implants” (see below), and additional information can be found on her website http://www.plastikos.com/atlantaplasticsurgeryarticles.html#page=silicone

As a Chronic Lyme Disease patient, I know this step isn’t going to be the cure-all. But I feel relieved that a potential contaminant has been removed to help my immune system and gain strength. Many many thanks to everyone and all who have helped fund the costs of surgery. Love to you all.
