Exactly 1 month post op! I’m honestly in shock at all of the changes that happened instantaneously. Some symptoms have made great progress over the last month and continue to improve everyday. Here’s a little update on everything and how my symptoms have improved! I’m also going to include my surgeon in this post at the bottom.
•Restricted breathing ➡️ Same day of explant I could get a FULL deep breath.
•Severe brain fog & fatigue ➡️ woke up mentally clear the very next day and have continued to everyday.
•Chronic inflammation ➡️ few days explant inflammation dissipated. I’ve lost 5 lbs of inflammation alone. (Down a total of 7-8 lbs)
•Blood shot eyes, dull skin, dark circles and puffy eyes ➡️ ALL GONE 🙌🏼
•Estrogen dominance ➡️ seemed to improve until period time and then this last period was rough. My cortisol with the move is through the roof, so this I’m gonna need to be patient with.
•EXTREME depression and anxiety ➡️ very dull, manageable depression/anxiety (what I’m used to normally)
•Weak muscles that wouldn’t recover ➡️ still weak from not training 😂, but the few leg days I’ve had I didn’t tire out quickly and I had a normal recovery after!
•MOST OF ALL THOUGH, I went from not recognizing myself... as a person or in the mirror (face or body) to feeling and looking myself again!!! It feels good to see myself happy and well again.
I wanted to wait to say who my surgeon was until I recovered. I would never want to recommend someone or something before having an honest, full experience myself. That being said, I had a total capsulectomy and lift done by Dr. Robert Houser in Westerville, OH. I wanted to stay local and wanted someone experienced. While he isn’t a die hard advocate for BII, he acknowledged all of my concerns with compassion and his office/ staff were amazing!! My boobies look incredible and I’m thrilled 🙌🏼
I’m glad to have most of this behind me now. I still have a long road to getting my athletic performance back, but I know how to stay patient and diligent. Thank you all for supporting me through this and helping spread awareness. Only YOU can take full responsibility for your health

Breast implant illness is more common than you think. If you have only had your breast implants a few years, don't think this can't happen to you. Some women get sick immediately but for the majority of us, it's between your six and eight that we start having symptoms. By the time you get to year 10, many feel like we are 90 years old. These symptoms can be very vague but if you have all of them and no explanation, then you have breast implant illness. Great post from @breastimplantillnessig - There is no timeline of when breast implants illness symptoms will hit you. Some women can go decades before showing symptoms, while others become ill right away or within the first few years. It depends on your immune system, your body, if you have the MTHFR gene mutation... yet one thing is for sure, when it hits hard, it hits fast. You lose the person you once were, physically and mentally. You become a shell of the woman you used to be. .
The truth is breast implants are made with 40+ neurotoxins, heavy metals, and carcinogens that leech out into your body even when the implant is not ruptured. This is called gel bleed. Autopsies performed on women with implants have found silicone migrated to the brain and other organs. Saline implants have a silicone shell as well as the added risk of growing mold. On top of this, they are foreign objects that don’t belong in the body over your vital organs... your immune system is in constant distress from day one forming a scar capsule around the implant in an attempt to wall off the invader and protect you from what should not be there. While this happens and your immune system is so caught up fighting these toxic objects, you are left open to other illnesses and infections. Eventually it begins to attack itself and autoimmune symptoms and or autoimmune diseases begin to take place. .
Just because you aren’t showing symptoms yet, doesn’t mean a disease process isn’t happening inside your body.
Leaving breast implants in your body is like playing Russian roulette with your health. You never know when the illness is going to hit you, and if you don’t stop playing the game..
CBD helps with PTSD
PTSD is a severe condition that makes leading a normal life a challenge, and sometimes even debilitating. Moreover, the disorder can significantly affect your social life as it can cause isolation from yourself and also people around you such as strangers, family, friends and your loved ones. CBD oil works in a fairly unique way in helping individuals with PTSD. The compound targets chemical responses in the body that produce depression, anxiety, stress and other mental symptoms linked with PTSD. By reducing these symptoms, CBD helps block the mood receptors from the triggers. -
Find out more on our website about how CBD oil helps with PTSD: click on the Blog tab “CBD for PTSD”
Nevertheless, it is good to remember that none of the information on the success of CBD in treating PTSD is clinically proven. This is mainly due to the restrictive laws on CBD that limit medical researchers.
What are your thoughts!? Have anyone found it to be helpful for them or anyone they know who has PTSD?
Faery Forrest Cards are one of my new favorite decks. I don't often speak about readings, nor do I read much for others anymore. Mostly because I am getting way too much information, and it's always right.
This card - The Unseelie Queen, and it is my exact situation. Contact me if you have questions, I'm being told to help you.
￼￼ One-Card Reading
Your Card - “UNSEELIE QUEEN” - There may be harsh words being spoken about or to you, and slowly, over time, the toxic moments have woven together and cast a cloak of bitterness over your once hopeful heart. You feel wounded, resentful, and helpless. You may fear that if you confront this, you will be harmed, hurt, disempowered, blamed, or weakened. But you must honour your own point of view, value your side of the story, and take necessary steps to protect yourself. The Unseelie Queen is invested in how things look – she can manipulate public opinion and make others feel very insecure and unstable. Take this card to mean that you have a great challenge ahead of you – to restore your own self-love, to become less vulnerable by those who seek to hurt and distort, to unapologetically present your case.
MOBILITY VS STABILITY
It’s easy to say that if you’re tight or something feels off that you need more mobility work. NOT NECESSARILY TRUE
Example A: I have right hips/ tendinitis in my ilio-psoas (hip flexor). I always think I need to work on my range of motion (ROM) BUT I learned yesterday not the case.
First pic- I can lift my leg/ foot up. This means I have the ROM in my hip joint.
Second pic- I physically can’t lift my leg ON MY OWN. I don’t have STABILITY in my hip
Stability is when you can move the joint/ body part on your own. Now that I’m aware of the difference and what I now need to work on, I have to now work on the strength of my smaller muscles around my hip joint and focus on and work and soft tissue work before my lift.
Moral of the story: things are not always what they seem and always be learning. .
When it gets cold not only is my skin affected by my joints as well. The Barometric Pressure starts to drop when it’s cold outside leading to stiff, achy joints. Also being tense when your chilly can cause stress to your body as well. •
Make sure you bundle up when you go outside and if you are experiencing this as well try our Inflamed Healing Balm to help you keep you going through the cold 💫
Interestingly, CBD has proven effective in the treatment of each of these stressors suggesting the power it offers to those long-suffering IBD patients.✔✔⚠️💙 .

CBD spells 'relief' for people who suffer from Irritable Bowel Disease. It fundamentally reduces the factors that trigger the pain and discomfort. It can be more effective than over-the-counter brands. It can be cheaper than prescription pharmaceutical solutions and work without their side-effects. For many with #IBD , #CBD has become the therapy of choice.
Here's your week-before-Thanksgiving PSA! For those of you who suffer from gout, be careful what you indulge in during this annual feast (we know — it's hard!). Gout develops when uric acid accumulates and then crystallizes in your tissues or joints (especially your big toe!). Foods, like red meat, organ meats, shellfish, red wine, and beer, are often culprits. They're high in "purines," the chemical compound that turns into uric acid during oxidization. #YavapaiFAC#ThanksgivingReady
Joint and Muscle Pain.. Its not something you think about often, but when pain strikes you can’t think of anything else.
Who hasn’t had some kind of sprain, strain or achy muscle in their life?? Or how about chronic joint pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis?? 🤔
Why not try a home remedy using essential oils.. instead of popping pills that do more harm than good.
Oils works without the side effects.
I am so glad I found oils.. I have a slipped disk in my back which when I move wrong (and I mean as basic a movement as sneezing or picking up a laundry basket the wrong way and I can be doomed) and depending on the severity, I can help myself with my oils.. Don’t get me wrong, they will not put my disk back in place like my Chiropractor can, but it can minimize my pain. And it does help when it is just muscle related.
My last post I mentioned Lemongrass for headaches and mentioned rubbing it on my shoulders.. well this is why, its great for muscle pain too.. #winwin
One oil..two problems. 👏🏻 I have many favourite oils.. and another fav is deep relief is like my bff.. it goes everywhere I do. 😀
Thank you Jamie for a inspiring testimony. <3 "I’m a 37 old, young woman 💋 This is my testimonial.
I have been ashamed to be on anxiety pills on and off for 6 years. I hated being on them...11 years ago my oldest brother committed suicide and since that time I have dealt with a lot of issues.
I came across CBD Oil the beginning of this year hoping I could get my grandma on it because she was suffering from a disease that made her have tremors. The home she was in kept putting her on pills. They all had side effects. She was deteriorating and no longer enjoyed life and it ate at me.
I thought CBD oil was drugs until I educated myself. I went to my local hippie store and used their CBD oil because I thought it was all the same. Nope. So not true. Used another CBD oil on month 2 and it softened the edges but I was still on my pill.
Then I found HempWorx. I studied the owner, the company, the people and the products. I ordered and knew in my heart this was it. Oct. 23, 2018 I started using my CBD oil with HempWorx and magic happened. 🌱 I haven’t felt the need to take my pill and my anxiety is not there. 🌱 This stuff is legit!" 💻💻 Order online here ~ www.HempWorx.com/ZenHealth or click the link on my profile 😊 *Select Herbal Drops Peppermint Original~ Natural Flavor OR
