Explant Surgery Is a Necessary Step Towards Your True Healthy Self

Explant Surgery Image

The need for explant surgery by women has been on the rise in recent times. Celebrities such as Crystal Hefner, Eden Sassoon, and Sharon Osbourne, have also joined the fray and have had their breast implants removed. In this article, I will discuss breast implants and the options available for you to have them removed.

Why Do You Need Explant Surgery?

You have to understand that the symptoms of breast implant disease vary from body to body due to personal differences, type of breast implants and the progression of the disease. However it turns out that some symptoms appear somewhat earlier and more consistently, such as cognitive dysfunction (clouding of mind, memory loss), fatigue/low energy, headaches, joint and muscle pain, recurring infections,hair loss, enlarged lymph nodes, skin rash, irritable bowel syndrome, allergies, thyroid and adrenal gland problems. All these symptoms are your body’s indication that your implants are the cause of the disease and should be removed as soon as possible.

You see, sometimes we have breast implants for medical conditions say for example after a mastectomy, or for beauty purposes. However, later in life, explant surgery becomes inevitable for different reasons.

Health Risks

In addition to the above, implants pose serious health risks. For example, you can develop life-threatening diseases such as breast cancer and breast implant-related lymphoma.

Rupture And Leakage

According to studies, breast implant rupture and leakage are much more common than previously thought. It’s a very common fact that a rupture doesn’t show any symptoms that warned the women that they have a rupture.  Silicone from a ruptured implant can migrate into the breast and arms and into the lymph nodes under the arm; from there it can go to the lungs, liver, or other organs.

Toxification

Another fact you have to know about breast implants is that they are very toxic. The thing is breast implants cause toxicity in the body several different ways.

First, breast implants are large foreign objects that constantly affect the immune system, ultimately suppressing it and causing its dysfunction and failure. Immune system dysfunction leads to autoimmune symptoms and diseases. Immune system failure allows opportunistic organisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites to grow uncontrollably. Bacteria and fungi can cause autoimmune diseases. Moreover, breast implants are essentially two large bags of aggressive cytotoxic, neurotoxic and carcinogenic chemicals that are highly inflammatory to our tissues, organs, and glands.

Secondary, you should know that breast implants contain heavy metals. Over the years, breast implant manufacturers have used a variety of heavy metals in their silicone recipes. Heavy metals confer on toxicity, disease, and the many diseases that plague humanity. You have to understand that basically, every chemical used to make silicone breast implants is toxic to our body.

Crystal Hefner Explant Quote Image

Some people believe (and this belief is actively promoted by plastic surgeons who make money on women’s insecurities and men’s desire to objectify women) that saline implants can’t cause any health issues. But unfortunately, it’s not true. You have to understand that the shell on silicone and saline implants is comprised of silicone and over 40 other toxic chemicals such as zinc, tin, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, formaldehyde, talc, etc. Your immune system is constantly fighting these chemicals, leaving you vulnerable to other illnesses. The estimated time frame for these bags to start falling apart is 8-10 years, although some people experience problems soon after implanting and some much later.

Other Dangers

Other dangers associated with breast implant include infections that can cause internal bleeding, a build-up of calcium, diagnosis of cancer, liver and kidney dysfunction, toxic shock symptoms, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, leaky gut, symptoms of or diagnosis of lyme disease, and an accumulation of dead tissues around the implant, which can be fatal.

Explant Surgery Process and What to Expect

Yolanda Hadid Explant Quote Image

The explant surgery process is dependent on a number of factors. They include; the type of implant you have, the reason for extraction, and the size of the implant.

For instance, a doctor can deflate saline implants under local anesthesia and remove them after six weeks, unlike the silicone gel type of implants. Therefore, it is critical that you visit a qualified surgeon to administer the correct procedure.

The aftermath of an implant removal process would be conducting procedures such as closing up the spaces left by the implants, breast lifts and tightening of the breast tissue.

Recovery after Surgery

One of the essential steps you can take after surgery is to detoxify your system. This is because breast implants can cause toxicity that may tamper with your immune system.

For an effective detoxification process, after a professional surgeon correctly extracts the implant, stick to a healthy diet to heal your gut. Similarly, check for any infections and monitor your progesterone levels. Finally, support your immune and endocrine system by taking relevant supplements and minerals.

Getting Your Sexy Back

eden sassoon quote image

After a successful explant surgery, you need to love and appreciate your true beauty. But, how do you achieve this?

Get your spirituality right: Engage yourself in activities like yoga that prompt you to know your inner self. In other words, invest your time, mind, and soul in activities that can please your spirit. A spiritual mentor or group meetings can help you to learn how to appreciate your natural beauty.

Cultivate a positive attitude towards yourself: have self-love, and develop high self-esteem. In addition, do things that can please you and give you inner peace rather than trying to seek out unwarranted attention.

Eat healthily and exercise regularly: a balanced diet coupled with regular exercises can bring about a healthy body, mind, and soul.

Frequently Asked Explant Surgery Questions and Answers

Do breast implants need to be removed?

Yes, explant surgery is a critical step towards total recovery from any breast implant-related illness or any complication they might have caused.

Can you remove breast implants?

How much does explant surgery cost?

How long does explant surgery take?

The surgery can take between one and three hours under general anesthesia.

How long does it take to heal after breast implant removal?

It depends on an individual’s body. Majority of the women take between one and two years for them to heal completely. Others take less than a year and others more than two years.

Will I look the same as before after explant surgery?

You can look the same and even better especially if they perform a breast lift after the removal of the implant. Ideally, your surgeon can remove the extra breast skin that might remain especially if your implant was bigger than your natural breast tissue, and tighten the breast tissue to give them better support.

The Bottom Line

Have you finally decided to remove your implant? Visit the right surgeon, one who is experienced in total capsulectomy explant and can commit to extracting all the capsule tissue. This way, you have the best chance of full recovery.

And if you’ve been thinking of having a boob job done, hold that thought. Regardless of the situation, you need to learn to accept and love your natural beauty. A woman’s desire to be sexually objectified by men is not good for your mental health and spiritual development. Eventually, reality will catch up with you. Why have explant surgery ten years later when you can prevent that today?

Ayurvedic Tea is a drink made with special ingredients especially herbs. It’s is commonly used to detoxify and cleanse the body. In addition, the drink helps to calm the nerves, enhance energy, aid digestion, and promote emotional well-being. Today, we borrow these ancient practices and apply ayurvedic tea to our 3 dosha types. Read on.

Ayurvedic Tea for Vata Dosha

Chamomile tea image
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1tsp. Chamomile – fresh
  • 1/2 tsp. Nutmeg powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Ashwagandha powder
  • 1/4 tsp. dry Ginger – ground

Bring the water to boil. Switch off the heat and quickly add in all the ingredients. Cover the pot and let it sit for 10 minutes. This enables the ingredients to infuse well. Sieve in your drinking cup and enjoy. If you have a sweet tooth, feel free to add a vegan sweetener of your choice. However, note that this is not a bitter drink. Hence, you might enjoy more without sweetening.

The Benefits

The Vata dosha needs more brain magic to improve their memory and balance their moods. This recipe has chamomile as the key herb, nutmeg as the supporting herb, and ginger powder as the carrier herb. The body will, therefore, absorb the drink efficiently. Chamomile and nutmeg are nervine sedatives (they relax the nervous system) while Ashwagandha is a nervine tonic, (it strengthens the nervous system). Ginger, as a carrier herb, helps your body to digest all these herbs

This Ayurvedic Tea can be taken at any time of the day.

Ayurvedic Tea for Pitta Dosha

Coriander tea image
  • ¼ tsp. Coriander
  • ¼ tsp. Cumin
  • ¼ tsp. Fennel
  • 2 cups of water
  • A sweetener (maple syrup, agave nectar, etc.)

Roast the seeds in a hot pan and set aside. This helps to bring out their natural oils and aroma. As a result, they infuse easily when boiled in water. Next, you bring the water to boil in a saucepan or teapot. Add the above ingredients and let it simmer until it reduces by half (approximately 10 minutes on a medium-low flame).

In your drinking cup, add a sweetener to your preferred taste. Then pour in the hot drink via a strainer. Stir well to mix and enjoy.

The Benefits

This Ayurvedic Tea recipe is an excellent laxative. It is great for digestion and relieves constipation. It is best taken just before you go to bed.   

Ayurvedic Tea for Kapha Dosha

cinnamon lemon Ayurvedic tea image
  • ½ fresh lemon

Pranic Healing: Overcome Modern Day Ailments with Life Energies

Published

on

pranic healing image

Often we struggle with conditions that modern medicine finds it hard to demystify. However, Mother Nature is always at hand to heal our minds and bodies with her age-old techniques. One such avenue to tap into nature’s healing power is through pranic healing.

What is it? How does it work? Is it ideal for your situation?

These are some of the common questions that this quick guide seeks to address. Are you ready to unlock what Mother Nature has in store for you? Keep reading!

So What Is Pranic Healing?

kundalini yoga image

Pranic healing is a non-invasive treatment. It involves a meditation practice that sets the flow of prana energy (also called Kundalini) in our bodies. As a result, it restores our wellness and breathes life to our bodies and minds.

Pranic healing gets its name from the Sanskrit word ‘Prana’. It means a life-giving force or a vital principle. As per Indian belief, this helpful prana energy is all around us. Hence, we use meditation to tap this life force and use it to restore life into our bodies.

Meditation TechniqueAim
Natural BreathingIt is the basic pranic healing technique.
Here, we become conscious of our
breathing patterns. Consequently,
it soothes and relaxes the mind and body.
Basic Abdominal BreathingIt involves learning to breathe with our
diaphragm. This way, we make use of all
parts of our lungs. As a result, our
internal organs gain from improved
breathing.
Thoracic BreathingThis breathing way uses more energy
than the abdominal one. Hence, we
learn the right way to expand
the ribcage and not the diaphragm.
It prepares participants for other
detailed yogic breathing sessions.
Clavicular BreathingIt involves learning how to breathe
under lots of stress. Here, you master
how to allow lots of air into your lungs
and arrest any medical issue. It is
excellent on asthma attacks, blocked
or obstructed airwaves, and emphysema.
Yogic BreathingThis technique is about breathing
using both the clavicular, abdomen,
and chest areas. It works well
to promote optimal inhalation and
exhalation. The participant learns
how to use these three areas in exact
proportions.
Deep BreathingHere, the participant uses a timer
or clock to check the breathing
periods. This way, they learn to take
deep and smooth breaths and hold
them for longer. These gulps of air
assist in massaging the internal
organs. It also helps in lowering
blood pressure, stress, and anxiety.
The participant learns to take in more
oxygen with every breath. In addition,
it relaxes the nervous system and helps
prepare expectant mothers for labor.

How do we achieve this?

The Principle Behind Pranic Healing and Pranayama

Pranayama is a set of meditation habits that are part of a pranic healing session. Here, the persons guide their breathing to raise prana energy through the spine. In turn, when the prana enters the sixth chakra, one gets enlightenment.

Other pranic healing techniques include:

  1. Interrupted Breathing – Anuloma Viloma
  2. Alternate Nostril Breathing  –  AnulomVilom
  3. Cooling Breath – Kaki mudra, Sheetali, Sitkari
  4. Victorious Breath – Ujjayi             
  5. Humming Bee Breath – Bhramari
  6. Bellow’s Breath – Bhastrika
  7. Right Nostril Breathing – Surya Bhedan

How Does Pranic Healing Work?

Kundalini awakening symptoms image

Our spines have an energetic nerve channel that runs on either side of the spine. The prana energy sips upward through this channel. As it does so, our breath draws to the lungs, resulting in a reawakening of the senses.

Even so, as the prana energy shifts downward, it becomes Apana energy. This new life force induces the person to exhale. In turn, he detaches from the conflicting forces of the outside world.

Through inhalation, we get happy and excited about prana energy. Meanwhile, we conquer depression, anxiety, or any other emotional disturbance with every exhalation. 

What Should I Expect To Gain From A Pranic Healing Session?

Attain Inner Peace

Prana energy cleanses our emotions and thoughts. That way, we experience quietness and harmony. Eventually, we become mindful of our being.

Happiness and Better Health

Heart Chakra Healing image

Pranic healing clears and activates our heart chakra. It is the heart chakra that determines our feelings of joy and happiness. In the process, our bodies respond by becoming healthy in mind and body. 

Higher Intelligence Levels

When prana energy enters our upper chakras, it revives our high intelligence. These upper chakras connect to our spirituality. They define our concentration, abstract thinking, and brain activity levels. In addition, when free, they have a ripple effect on the lower chakras like the sacral chakra.

We Heal Ourselves

By learning breathing meditation, we develop healthy habits that discourage diseases. Instead, taking good care of our minds and bodies becomes a standard routine.

We Impact Health to Others

It is not easy to sample the benefits of pranic healing and keep them to yourself. You will have the urge to want to help others restore their health as you did. Hence, in a way, pranic healing creates a ripple healing effect on those around us. That’s why you find beneficiaries start breathing meditation classes in their neighborhood.

Discover Other Positive Energies In and Around You

Alan Watts Quotes Image

As you go through a self-awakening, you become aware of how the energy in and around you spins. You’ll see how these forces impact your life. Then, you can come up with strategies to avoid the negatives and attract the positives only. 

Appreciate Your Chakras

As discussed earlier, Pranic healing works through our chakras. Therefore, as you see the results of the therapy, you’ll learn to appreciate how this anatomy of energies works.

Get Your Life Back

Pranic healing makes us aware of how our bodies react to external forces. We gain charge over many aspects of our lives. These include finances, relationships, spirituality, and health. 

Better Intuition

Third eye chakra activation image

A clear Third eye chakra helps us to horn our intuition. Hence, we can trust our sixth sense to direct us out of any imminent dangers or tricky situations.

Conclusion

Prana energy gives us a chance to clear our chakras and recover from common ailments. Moreover, pranic healing can become a lifestyle habit. You’ll heal and stop any sickness or emotional imbalances without using any drugs. Besides, the rounds are quite straightforward and free. Yet, the gains are priceless. Use pranic healing to awaken you today.
