I am so happy you have decided to share your journey with us! Having a support team is alwasy important while going through something life-changing. Having a positive attitude can make or break your success! Detoxing from breast implant illness is such an important part of the journey! After my explant I started a Non profit , created numerous informative videos with Plastic surgeons and Holistic Doctors
and websites to help share what I’ve learned. These are the personal detox successes that have changed my life as a Woman, Wife and a Mother.
While there are many suggestions listed here none are made by a clinical doctor, suggestions are based off of personal experience. Each person will have different reactions based on preexisting conditions, heredity and lifestyle. As always I encourage you to do your own research to determine whats best for you.
There are many stages and layers to the journey of healing breast implant illness. The number of years you have had implants, the health of the implants as well as the brand and make -up of implant. It seems some implant styles (such as textured) have created a range of symptom severity. Look out for info more and more are being recalled.
When the body goes into inflammatory response, autoimmune issues can become debilitating. “Let food be thy medicine”. Start on the autoimmune diet. HERE
While diet is a HUGE part of how your body will begin to heal, diet alone wasn’t enough for me. I have MTHFR and this gene mutation( or imbalance ) needs a real nudge. One of the side effects /symptoms of this “mutation’ (or some believe a deficiency in riboflavin) means the body doesn’t detox properly. Often times needing binders and methylated B vitamins to become healthier and release toxins easier.
Some believe that detoxing while your implants are still intact is useless. I, however, believe heavy metals are detrimental and can be detoxed with binders at anytime. My fatigue and brain-fog was so crippling Benetonite clay and zeolites! were my only salvation! I suggest pill form for the clay, it tastes awful! ( 25% off discount with code : darbyfit)
Pre Explant – My Salvation Was:
- Benetonite Clay 3 hours before eating in the am. The clay worked as a binder and helped remove chemicals. I had energy after taking it each day.
- Can’t Beet This: This is a beet supplement but the combination of ingredients makes it more bio-available and extremely effective. While it is a detox product, it helps with methylation or detoxing . The formulation also has Cordyceps mushrooms which help open up the respiratory system and green tea which is an important antioxidant.
- Sever anxiety? High quality CBD that is purity tested is key! Full spectrum 1500mg MY FAVORITE HERE
I did Yoga Nidra.
No matter what your religious orientation is, it’s amazing and calming. This helped me so much with anxiety. It is free on YouTube. I made my intention ” my body is healing and removing all toxins I feel amazing” it is important that you find intention that feels good to you. I have created a healing guided meditation available Here.
I did no other detoxing prior to explant.
The Day of Explant:
This day should be a day of rest along with a few days to follow. Gentle liver support and detox tea.
1/2 Red clover tea
4 cups a day are used only organic high-quality herbs. Try for loose leaf to avoid metal staples steeping in the tea.
As you detox your organs its important to take special care of the liver. Milk thistle , selenium, beets, Niacin and a gallon of water with lemon are all wonderful ways to support the liver. Make sure you are drinking enough water.
This list isn’t meant to do all at once, starting slow, seeing which products work best for you and when to ease off or add more is personal . No two detox journeys will be the same.

the body. Focus on alklaining foods. A guide HERE
If you are a big meat eater this is a good time to focus on easy to digest proteins: Clean Poultry, fish and vegetable.
Make sure to add lots of greens! I use a green drink daily! Use food and food based products to alkaline. Make sure all the foods and product you use are organic. This cuts down on the chemical exposure. More Info HERE

The Bemer mat is what I like to call the “cheat” Its a wonderful way to detox while supporting your body in so many ways. Its ONE function is to up your circulation. It can up your circulation up to 30% which is higher than any other modality! Including medication and exercise! Which in turn helps get oxygen to the brain and helps to detox the entire body! Including moving the lymph which as been found to be a huge issue for BII sufferers!
Starting the bemer for “explanters” : A few days prior to starting I upped my doses of Magnesium ( the benefits are magical- research). This will help to make sure you are going to the bathroom, it also helps with the fact that it may keep you up. Detoxing and all the new found blood and oxygen circulating is usually NEW for a body thats just explanted! It can keep you awake! Circulation and slow lymph drainage is a common BII trait.
You can watch the video here!

Things to look into:
EMF ( electro magnetic field) exposure. This is a growing danger. It seems to show more and more dangerous as the years go on.

on mattresses, pillows and furniture ( look into organic mattresses Saatva
is one of my very favorites).
Wool carpets ( if you aren’t allergic ) are better! WHY? they are naturally flame resistant so they don’t have to spray them with flame retardants ( known to be linked to cancers
