Breast Implant Illness- Dr J's Story

Hello, allow me to share my Breast Implant Illness story and why I help women heal from this condition which is commonly referred to as BII. When I became a doctor over 20 years ago, it was not my original intention to develop a specialization in understanding the negative side effects of breast implants. Breast implants can have a myriad of harmful impacts on a woman's overall health, family, and life. Just as many women have, I made the decision one day to get this surgery, and that one decision in itself would change my life in so many ways.

Breast implants can release endless amounts of toxins and orchestrate vicious destructive cycles in the body, especially in combination with other health challenges. In me, they were slowly disintegrating my health, like termites destroying a beautiful redwood tree from the inside out. It took me several years and dozens of specialists all of whom failed to properly identify BII and the full spectrum of chronic disease that I was experiencing. Ultimately one day I finally put all the pieces together when I decided to be both the doctor and patient by utilizing the same skills on my patients but this time on myself. Soon I realized it was my breast implants that were slowly killing me and within a few months, I had them explanted.

I use a whole-body Functional Medicine approach to help women address and rebuild back their health. Each woman is unique in her full symptoms and recovery process. Making the commitment to getting your implants explanted is step 1 with healing. There are holistic steps you can take beforehand to help support your surgery but most of the healing process begins post explant. How much repair each woman needs varies greatly. The only way to know is to begin the process and work with a health team that truly understands it inside and out both clinical and emotional. BII is very similar to chronic conditions like auto-immunity, they are both fierce conditions that follow no hard fast rules and can be so different in each person. This is why it is vital to seek out help from someone that gets it and what you are going through!

If you have breast implants, I strongly encourage you to act sooner rather than later to remove them if you do not feel well or have been struggling with any health challenges. If you would like experienced clinical guidance with restoring your health, then feel free to contact me. If I can accept your case then I promise to help you as best as I can within my clinical capacity, and also as a friend who has gone through what you are dealing with right now.

I provide telehealth clinical services via phone, video, computer, and in person. I work with women all over the world that are in various stages of the healing process. I am fluent in Spanish as my entire family is from Costa Rica.

May God Bless You in Your Health Journey!

We find that weightloss comes easily for our clients because we coach our clients on how to master the basics and build up from there. We teach you how to end the vicious cycle and rollercoaster nightmare of weight challenges by getting to the root causes and reverse engineering your clinical challenges.

Most programs will put the emphasis on just food and exercise which can work but statistically, only 5% of those people will keep the weight off long term. Our clients' success is built upon the how and why along with relevant clinical details of each person. We are passionate about helping people and we know that one standard protocol does not work for everyone.

And it's not just your health that is important it’s likely everyone in your family household including your children.

We properly qualify each patient to ensure they are an excellent match for the programs we offer. What makes our programs stand out is not the rapid weight loss but the game-changing lifestyle process and partnership between doctor and patient. Your weight loss is a team effort with clinical support every step of the way!

We don’t use any fads, trends, or gimmicks. They are no injections, drugs, packaged foods, freezing body fat, counting calories, extreme exercise or harmful hormone houdini tricks.

About 3/4’s of the population in the USA is overweight and about 46% are already Level 1 clinical obesity. In North America 26% of the population is diagnosed with Diabetes and Insulin Resistance, prior to these conditions is Metabolic Syndrome which accounts for a staggering percentage of the population that has no idea they are sprinting towards chronic health issues. Research shows that Alzheimer's is Diabetes type 3. It is becoming common for the retired aging community to lose mental function and many of these dear family members struggled with health issues for decades that were never addressed beyond medication. Chronic diabetes can progress into neurogenerative brain decline which we see in Alzheimer's and other similar conditions.

Heart attacks have been the # 1 leading cause of death for decades around the world. Chronic obesity and cardiovascular disease are commonly linked to excess weight which in turn shortens your life span and quality of life with your loved ones.

Thirty years ago being overweight was mainly about food and being sedentary, today it has become far more complex to the reasons why someone is carrying stubborn excess weight. Just focusing on food and exercise is not a one-fits-all answer, it is an important part of the equation but it is not all of it. This is why we take time to analyze the whole person in order to best help them achieve realistic health goals!
