Toxins in tattoos, botox, breast implants & fillings

Breast implants. Botox. Tattoos. Silver fillings. Are you under the impression that these things are safe and have no impact on your health? Do you believe that any associated toxins stay at the injection/implantation site and don't spread throughout the body? Keep reading...

Breast implants - Implants have more toxins than I can list. Some of the more common ones include heavy metals, silicone, stearic acid, talcum powder, benzene, sodium fluoride & toluene. These toxins slowly leak into the body and can cause a host of issues like headaches, neurological issues, thyroid disfunction and BIA-ALCL (Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma). Saline implants don't exempt you from breast implant illness - because they aren't hermetically sealed toxins not only exit but bodily fluids, yeast, bacteria and mold can enter the implant and cause decay.

Botox - Made from the botulinum toxin that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin is the most potent neurotoxic substance known to man (a single gram is capable of killing a million people)... so it would make sense that even in the smallest of doses would have some side effects. Botox causes inflammation and oxidation which actually speeds up the aging process and will cause the deterioration of your skin much like smoking and UV rays. Because it works by deadening facial nerves and muscles, it causes loss of strength and all-over muscle weakness over time. It also contains human albumin (blood components) which can harbor viruses and parasites and has it's own list of adverse reactions which includes anaphylaxis.

Tattoos - Tattoos can contain heavy metals, titanium dioxide, carbon black, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, HCBD, phthalates and benzo(a)pyrene. Associated health conditions range from cytotoxicity (cell death), genotoxicity (DNA mutation), brain damage, nerve damage, autoimmunity, birth defects and cancer. Getting them removed doesn't necessarily absolve you from toxicity - when lasered, the toxins are broken down and could be absorbed into the bloodstream. If the lymphatic system is congested, waste can build up in the body causing more issues.

Silver/Amalgam fillings - These are made from a mixture of mercury and other metals. There's about 1/2 gram of mercury in a filling... which exceeds the EPA's standards for human exposure for 100 years. An estimated 15 micrograms are released per day through mechanical wear and can actually measure mercury vapor off the tip of an amalgam-filled tooth. When mercury interacts with oral and intestinal bacteria, methyl mercury is produced which can target and damage the brain, thyroid and pituitary glands.

Most people don't realize that any of these can be the root cause of your chronic health condition. Food for thought for those considering since our healthcare system sucks at informed consent. And if you have them there are always removal and detox options. Give me a if this resonates!
