I started in April 2017 with the Hair mineral testing... I didn't explant until Jan 2018. It did me no harm... only wonderful good! I was very much closer to well by the time my explant came...and It was not just an explant, I did explant and fat transfer, and then several more fat transfer surgeries in 2018 because I was a BIL mastectomy patient... pretty much sailed right through them with minimal trouble... thanks to my health being better due to all 4 steps of the protocol.

Hi! I haven't been on lately. I have been totally immersed in healing. I followed all the protocols recommended by Dawn and Paula, and was successful in getting my health back. I was totally debilitated from the toxins that leaked into my body due to the implant that I had. I had additional help from an entire Home Health Care Team, then as an outpatient for Occupational Therapy. I also was given a set of recommendations from therapists as to what I should continue regarding exercises at home and exercises at the gym. After two years, I improved greatly. I still had issues in my shoulder and neck areas, and the range of motion in my arms. I had brain fog to the point of being unable to focus when reading, and doing crossword puzzles (two of my favorite pastimes). I still had tingling and numbness in my fingers making it difficult to sew and do needlepoint. After much thought, I decided to enlist the help of a Personal Trainer at the gym. This Personal Trainer is quite experienced and knowledgeable with regard to dealing with issues people may have physically. The exercises I do with her at more strenuous, but I am doing them. I am definitely becoming stronger. In addition, she keeps after me to bathe with Epsom salts. The exercises and baths all help one to detox. It is all definitely helping me. After one month, I was able to read an entire novel. I am now on my third novel. In addition, I have completed many crossword puzzles, mended several clothing items, and completed needlepoint blankets that I started 3 years ago for my two grandchildren. I feel alive again for the first time in almost three years. In October, it will be three years since my explant. I continue to follow the Kaufman Phase I diet for the most part (I do cheat at times.) Do not give up if you are having issues still after a long period of time. Keep working at it. Follow the protocol of Dawn and Paula. Work on detoxing, detoxing, detoxing! Continue to have faith in healing. My motto for life is, "Keep Going." You can make it your motto, too!

Ever wonder if this protocol is working? I have a very outward symptom of it working, and hope you will relate it to whatever your symptom is. It's not always easy to know we are healing, especially if we are not feeling very good while the healing is happening. But it IS happening! Read on for motivation to stick with it, or to start this protocol!

For ladies with early menopause, AND those thinking about starting the protocol or who are on the protocol, I wanted to share my story real quick in the hopes it might help to motivate YOU! I am 37, explanted my 17 year old saline implants on 3-13-19, have been on the Kaufmann diet with VERY little cheating since 4-30-19, and on supplements and a natural progesterone cream (Dawn recommended) since 5-22. Before explant, I was having hot flashes 5-6 times a day, mood swings, and would go 2-3 months without a period, and those "periods" would need only the thinnest pantyliner. Since explant, I had 2 warm (not hot) flashes about a month post-op, and absolutely ZERO since! My moods have also normalized. I had a slight period 18 days post-op, and since being on supplements and progesterone I have had 2 full-blown periods! The period I am on now started at cycle day 30. THIRTY! That means my cycle was NORMAL for the first time in about 1 1/2 years! I am very hopeful, and also so, so, so, so grateful to the person that led me to this group and Dawn Ryan Strohm, and for Dawn's tireless work helping us heal from BII!

You can all do this, ladies! It's temporary and you are worth it!

I am so thankful tonight as I look at a blood test that was taken 1 week ago. My liver enzymes are normal. I have had years of high liver enzymes. I thank the Lord for this group, and my sister Annette who persisted and didn't give up on trying to find an answer to all my illnesses. She made me explant December. And to Dawn Ryan Strohm who is teaching us all how to get well. Love all the admins for your support and constant attention to us. I'm over joyed and humbled to think almost 30 years of these evil bags in my body almost took my life. But God had other plans. Glory to His name. I actually had enough energy to go to Costco and unload the car at 9pm. And I'm not wiped out!! Ladies get the hair analysis and stay on the 4 step protocol it works. My eye sight has come back, I don't have fatigue like I use to, I've been able to lose 15 lbs, my breathing is restored, my hands don't fall asleep anymore, brain fog is substantially better and short term memory is coming back and I can finish a sentance without stopping midway to try and remember what I was saying or connect my speech with my brain. Wow I am overwhelmed with emotions of starting a new beginning. So thankful!!

After 8 years wondering why, searching for answers, I found my answer on Facebook. Booked right away, 3 years of trials and tribulations, I found my answer to wellness right away. 6 months after following Dawn’s protocol and Hair mineral test, I can say FINALLY feel like me. I did did lose my immune system, have lots of Neuro problems, that I don't know if they will ever change, some worst. But I am here, mentally and physically. I have come a long way, and with the help with a neurologist I am praying to improve there also. Don't ever give up. Your body just fixes some things on its own.

I am five weeks past ex-plant. I CANNOT BELIEVE the difference in how I feel. I have been able to ride my two horses, for the first time in one whole year, AND I am feeling non of the extreme fatigue or any pain in my joints, back or hips!! I am praising the Lord and also giving Him thanks for blessing me with YOU and your work!! I feel so LIGHT AND FREE! I love being flat chested and rid of those horrible 36 year old 34 DDDs with Stage 4 contractures. HALLELUJAH! Thank you Dawn. I AM A TOTALLY DIFFERENT PERSON!

Hi Ladies. Dawn wanted me to share a little of my experience so far. I am a very active 70 yr. old equestrian with 36 yr. old silicone implants that have each ruptured twice. I explant in two days. I have been suffering since 1997 with BII, mostly fatigue, and didn't know it, but I have been pushing through it. I had been tested for every condition there is with no definitive results, and then I found this site. For the last 8 wks the Phase I diet has been my friend. Toasted Buckwheat makes great granola and quinoa+eggs makes great waffles and pancakes. I have learned to "eat to live vs live to eat". Four weeks ago I began my personal protocol. At first I struggled with taking the 47 pills plus antifungals a day, but I put each "serving" into ramekins each morning and made up my mind that I and my constricted esophagus were going to do it, and we have!! I am feeling TERRIFIC! My cognition, pain and energy levels have improved greatly. I think the detox is also helping my body to get rid of an osteoporosis drug that I was taking for my bones and that was giving me such terrible pain I could could barely walk or use my arms. Also, I did a VCS test for mold, VCSTest.com. The test verified EVERYTHING that Dawn and the HMT had told me. I am going to retest in 3 months and hope to be a new woman THAT CONTINUES TO STAY ON HER PROTOCAL. So, don't give up or get discouraged. Dawn knows what she is doing, and this program really does work. Please pray for me regarding my explant this Wednesday the 8th. I am praying for all of you.

Update on Breathing Issues! I want to clarify! I'm a Client of Dawn Ryan Strohm's and strickly, following this 4 Step Protocol. I've been on Phase 1 Diet since October of 2017; Explanted Full Capsules Removed, March 14th, 2018. I've followed Steps 1-3 for a full year pior to explant and started Step 4 @ the 1 year mark. I'm so much better, mind, body & soul. What I want you to know is, I'm TRULY HEALING! I Feel the difference! I tried many avenues along the Path to Healing! I Promise! THIS IS IT!!! While I'm not 100% and may never eat the same, thank God I'm truly able to process the journey mentally, which is so important! I started Collodial Silver Inhalation thru a Nebulizer for my breathing issues! Ladies I literally could not breath, vomiting clear phelm in buckets! Testing to the tune of $6000 which showed NOTHING! COUGHING AND CHOKING ON MY OWN PHELM, right in front of medical staff. Nope! There's nothing there, SAID DOC! Three weeks into nebulizing! Bam! Bam! I can breath!!! Not perfect but, clearly better each day! And passing heaps of phelm! Gross, but clear fungi! And My 1st HTMA showed no heavy metals!!! Remember, I’ve been on the diet for a year, prior to explant. You ladies who are following; HOLD ON! GO STRICT! BELIEVE! TRUST, ASK QUESTIONS, WE LOVE AND WELCOME YOU! BUUUUUUTTTTTT! FOLLOW!!!! It's worth it! I Promise! I praise God ever single day for His answer to prayer! Thank You Ladies for letting me Share! Happy Healing!

What helped me the most to heal from Breast Implant Illness was the following...

*Explanting with enbloc total capsulectomy with no capsules or anything left behind!

*The 4-Step Detox Protocol which includes:

Antifungal Kaufmann 1 Diet fromDoug Kaufmann’s Know the Cause (diet is crucial to healing)

*Learning about fungi and how to stop it 🛑

*Probiotic (opened biofilms)

*Hair Mineral Test with Dawn and recommended supplements based on my results (game changer for me)

Without my supplements ...I feel like I’m dying. If I don’t do them I feel deathly sick so I know my hair test results and Dawn’s skill has helped me to give my body what it needs balance my minerals and to get it to methylate which I couldn’t do on my own.

*Patience-this one was hard for me

*Consistency (this is crucial to healing with BII)

*Eating all organic

*Being mindful of what I eat, drink and how I treat my body

*Learning to watch my adrenals so they don’t burn out anymore to give them a chance to heal. I don’t need to be Wonder Woman all the time.

*Loving myself and

*Letting others help me when I can’t keep up due to the damage my implants left behind and me repairing my body still

Update: So I forgot to post this here! I was terrified by how much hair I was losing for 6 months straight! 4 dermatologists, a seborrheic dermatitis diagnosis (severely/chronically inflamed scalp), chronic Telegen Effluvium and recommendations of antibiotics and steroids that led to no relief...5.5 weeks after my explant and 5 weeks after using the supplements my hair loss is SO MUCH BETTER! I’m over the moon I didn’t take any of what had previously been recommended. I’ve been down the antibiotic road for far too long to know that it won’t fix the root cause. Better hair care, explanting and supplements that Dawn has me on specific to my HTMA have been a lifesaver. I don’t take any hair specific ones anymore. Explanting has made such a difference as the inflammation was TERRIBLE. My scalp was itchy, had red patches all over, it hurt to even touch my hair on a pillow. All of that inflammation is GONE.

 

February 2019

I feel fabulous. I explanted 4.5 weeks ago. Just had to share. I’m on my 9th day of complete AWE in my energy level.

*I literally could handle ONE task per day. I am easily able to do 3-4 things and still feel great. I prepped food all last weekend, went to the gym and ran errands and still feel great at night.

 

*When I’m teaching (piano lessons) I can see the music clearer and am much less confused. Things are more in focus.

*I get up early and don’t immediately think about how great a nap would be! I’ve been to the gym 6 times in 9 days and I’m not needing a few hours buffer before working.

 

*I haven’t been diagnosed with anything as I never went to doctors for my illnesses. I knew I’d just be given a title and medications so I started my own detoxing a year ago March. As of today what I think was SIBO is much much better. My lower intestine used to bulge out and spasm when I’d lie down on bed. Hasn’t happened for two weeks! My digestion is better every day.

 

*My scalp was red and inflamed and I was diagnosed (after seeing 4 dermatologists in a year) with seborrheic dermatitis and chronic scalp inflammation of which antibiotics and steroids were prescribed. I didn’t take any of that and did homeopathic remedies and it is GONE! Now if my hair loss stops I will be OVER THE MOON.

 

I should also note that I am very dedicated to the diet - not one single deviation since starting - and supplementation. I make sure not to overdo it regardless of how good I feel. I make sure to get 7-8 hours of sleep every night and stay hydrated.

Well, here goes… This is not just an embarrassing confession, & I'm not boo-whooing, looking for sympathy but I need to get this off my chest. In my opinion, I feel it's also an eye opening testimony as well. I haven't been on here on the FB page in a long time. I think since last May 2018 when I went on vacation for 2 weeks. It was next to impossible to stay on my diet during that time. I did the best I could but I caved in. I told myself I would go back to my diet once I got home. Nope, I kept telling myself, I'll start next week & the next & it went on & on. I kept lying to myself. Anything I wanted, I ate. Cookies, cake, doughnuts, dominoes & my favorite food of all time, PB&J., 2 every morning. Anything I wanted I went crazy on. I no longer had respect for myself or concern for my health. The most shameful thing of it all is, (hold your britches) I was drinking 1 or 2 energy drinks a day & about a 2 liter mt dew in 2 days. Lucky for me I've never had an issue with weight gain. But now, all of a sudden, I've been slapped down hard. I didn't realize until the last month or so how much the {Kaufmann I} antifungal diet had been helping me. How much better I really was feeling on it. I forgot what that felt like. At the time I didn't realize that the serious brain fog & depression I had before starting the diet had begun to lift. When I stopped the healthy eating, it took a surprisingly long time for me to feel the effects creeping up on me. So now, I'm trying to get back on the antifungal diet. It's only day 3 & I'm already a mess. Just like when I first began in Nov 2017, I'm having horrible withdraw symptoms. I mean absolute torture but I think a lot of it has to do with quitting cold turkey on the soda & energy drinks on top of the inevitable sugar withdraw. Only 3 days & I can't hardly stand it. The cravings & horrible headaches & crying every time someone looks or says anything to me. If Dawn, Martha, and Paula remember, I couldn't go to the grocery store before when first starting the diet without literally crying my eyes out. It was too overwhelming being near all of that bad food. I looked like an idiot crying in the grocery store but I NEEDED that sugar! But, I made it! All the cravings stopped. I stuck with it & stayed strong & was so proud of myself. For me, that was a huge accomplishment. Back then, I knew I was going to get there. I wasn't giving up. But this time? I don't know if I have the strength. I'm going to try & hang in there. I just can't seem to get my brain into the full, "you can and will do this" as opposed to "I don't know if I can do this," kind of thinking. It's crazy, you would think I'm an alcoholic or drug addict the way I'm carrying on. I don't remember ever reading about anyone else acting like this. I don't remember it being this bad last time. This just goes to show that this protocol does work! I'm living proof of it. It showed me how much it healed my body. Unfortunately I'm not confident enough to say positively that I can do this again, but I really am trying. I can't leave the house because it's too tempting. My husband says he'll shop for me until I'm feeling better. He commented that I don't look healthy at all anymore and believe it or not, I didn't even notice until I just now looked in the mirror. Honestly, I truly did not see it until now. I feel I need to be locked in a padded cell with all the good food until this subsides. So, this is my story, & embarrassing as it is, I am not a failure. I will, however, be a failure if I don't get back on track so I'm going to try my best. I hope this will be a warning to everyone. Be smart, don't cheat. Because one thing can easily lead to another thing & before you know it, you've taken too many steps back to count. It's twice as hard getting back on track. 5 HTP is for cravings but because I'm on 2 anti depressants, there's no help there. Just have to ride it out. I hope this can help someone. {Cheryl also posted photos her before and after photos. The photos can’t be added to this document but they are located under Photos in the group.}

 

Update 3 days later-- Just wanted to take a quick minute to say that I'm still here, I'm hanging in there and the food cravings are getting a little more bearable but it's that darn Mt. Dew! Not craving energy drinks, just Mt. Dew. Headaches aren't as severe but it's still making me nauseous. I have a feeling it's going to stick around for a while but as of today, I can honestly say, I can do this! Confession, if my husband weren't with me yesterday, I would've bought a Mt. Dew. Not joking.

I explanted 13 years ago (I got very sick 6 months after my implants went in and was diagnosed with SLE 4 years later when I decided to explant). I followed a very strict anti-fungal diet just after explant all those years back which helped with reducing my inflammation and increasing energy levels. BUT I did not get better (autoimmune) and knew I needed to help myself.

 

Through a friend Joscelyne Reekie, I had my first consult and did my hair test with Dawn in August 2018. I was a metal toxic time bomb! So although I shifted the fungi all those years back the high metals didn't shift – at all! So my body was still a perfect environment for the fungi.

 

As Dawn has explained, I have followed the diet strictly (since the end of Aug 2018) and I have stuck to the protocol that Dawn gave me. How my results have changed in 3 months is incredible!!! I really believe that nobody understands or interprets these results as Dawn does. My results are a testimony that this protocol works!! THANK YOU DAWN - I AM SO VERY GRATEFUL FOR BEING DIRECTED TO YOU (Gods plan!)

Hi Ladies. Dawn wanted me to share a little of my experience so far. I am a very active 70 yr. old equestrian with 36 yr. old silicone implants that have each ruptured twice.

 

I explant in two days. I have been suffering since 1997 with BII, mostly fatigue, and didn't know it, but I have been pushing through it. I had been tested for every condition there is with no definitive results, and then I found this site.

 

For the last 8 wks the Phase I diet has been my friend. Toasted Buckwheat makes great granola and quinoa+eggs makes great waffles and pancakes. I have learned to "eat to live vs live to eat".

 

Four weeks ago I began my personal protocol. At first, I struggled with taking the 47 pills plus antifungals a day, but I put each "serving" into ramekins each morning and made up my mind that I and my constricted esophagus were going to do it, and we have!!

 

I am feeling TERRIFIC! My cognition, pain, and energy levels have improved greatly. I think the detox is also helping my body to get rid of an osteoporosis drug that I was taking for my bones and that was giving me such terrible pain I could barely walk or use my arms.

 

Also, I did a VCS test for mold,VCSTest.com. The test verified EVERYTHING that Dawn and the HMT had told me. I am going to retest in 3 months and hope to be a new woman THAT CONTINUES TO STAY ON HER PROTOCOL.

 

So, don't give up or get discouraged. Dawn knows what she is doing, and this program really does work. Please pray for me regarding my explant this Wednesday the 8th. I am praying for all of you.

After 8 years wondering why and searching for answers, I found my answer on Facebook. Booked right away, 3 years of trials and tribulations, I found my answer to wellness right away. 6 months after following her protocol and Hair mineral test, I can say FINALLY feel like me. I did lose my immune system, have lots of Neuro problems, that I don't know if they will ever change, some worst. But I am here, mentally and physically. I have come a long way, and with the help with a neurologist, I am praying to improve there also. Don't ever give up. Your body just fixes some things on its own.

I am so thankful tonight as I look at a blood test that was taken 1 week ago. My liver enzymes are normal. I have had years of high liver enzymes. I thank the Lord for this group and my sister Annette who persisted and didn't give up on trying to find an answer to all my illnesses. She made me explant December. And to Dawn Ryan Strohm who is teaching us all how to get well. Love all the admins for your support and constant attention to us. I'm over joyed and humbled to think almost 30 years of these evil bags in my body almost took my life. But God had other plans. Glory to His name. I actually had enough energy to go to Costco and unload the car at 9pm. And I'm not wiped out!! Ladies get the hair analysis and stay on the 4 step protocol it works. My eye sight has come back, I don't have fatigue like I use to, I've been able to lose 15 lbs, my breathing is restored, my hands don't fall asleep anymore, brain fog is substantially better and short term memory is coming back and I can finish a sentence without stopping midway to try and remember what I was saying or connect my speech with my brain. Wow I am overwhelmed with emotions of starting a new beginning. So thankful!!

Haven’t posted for a while so here’s my update. Got some test results back and happy to say my thyroid is doing well on its own off meds!!! Been on thyroid meds for the last five years and had them upped after surgery. Started feeling too jacked upon them and was too high on the last test so I just stopped them altogether. Been about three months so I got tested along with my hormones. So far on this protocol, I have healed from SIBO, healed my extreme adrenal fatigue, and now healed my thyroid!!! My hormone panel came back real low even on hrt and I’m estrogen dominant despite my estrogen being below menopausal norms!! I’m sure breast implants caused this too. Safe to say I found the probable reason for my hair loss. Balancing hormones, killing fungi the rest of the way and getting back in shape is still to be done but I have come so far in 19 months!!! If you are skeptical about this protocol please don’t be, I was very ill, passing out at work, and had to be put on FMLA before explant and I can now say I am almost completely made whole again!!! Just a little more time and I’ll be completely healthy me again! Please do everything Dawn Ryan Strohm and the others admins say and you will be well too!!! God bless!

I started the diet and probiotics in mid-July and the rest of the protocol including the HTMA in the beginning of September. I explanted on 10/02/18. I saw big improvements in my inflammation pre-explant and in the past two weeks I’ve had a big improvement in energy.

16 days post-op, 2 months on Kaufmann I and the probiotics/psyllium husk, 16 days on mineral supplementation post hair mineral test. I'm down 22 lbs and today I feel amazing. The last week has been hell with detoxing. I won't lie! Today, I feel like a new woman. I absolutely LOVE the methyl B-12 supplement!! This gets me through the day! I feel like me again, finally, today. Thank you, Dawn Ryan Strohm and all of your amazing, wonderful Angel moderators here in the group. I'm sending love and major blessings and prayers for healing to all of you.

I am so excited... just had my 3rd HMTA this year with Dawn, and while there have been a few setbacks due to explanting this year (3 surgeries this year so far) etc. I am getting to a point where I won't need them every 3 months soon. So much is getting better, still, a ways to go with adrenals, still need to get a RBC mag test... but my calcium, sodium, copper, iron, tin, and cobalt are finally in the 'not high' ranges as are the barium and the strontium levels! I still have a bit of work to do on the Aluminum... but I was telling Dawn, I'm not napping in the afternoon (ok, Sunday afternoon nap is a tradition around here but other than that...) I have more energy than I've had in years. Yes, I still tend to overdo it a bit and my adrenals tell me like the day I babysat my 2 grandsons for 11 hours... I was wiped out and shut down after that... but I bounced back so much quicker than I would have a year ago! My body took 12 years to disintegrate to a not good for much but sitting and talking heap... and I can't believe it is almost back to normal for an almost 60-year-old woman now! So much good healing in just 2 years come March 2019... Hang on, hold tight to the protocol, and keep putting one foot in front of the other! You can do this one day at a time! I was floored she started talking about 'longevity' strategies and supplements for me already. I think I am giddy... I don't do giddy! I'm gonna smile all day, can't wipe the grin off!

I’m so happy! I knew I was feeling better so was so happy to get the results of my 2nd HMTA today from Dawn Ryan Strohm! Anyone that’s “on the fence” about the importance of the HMTA, I’m here to tell you it’s made all the difference in my return to health!! Dawn is able to determine what supplements I need by the results. No more taking supplements I don’t need! It’s so encouraging to know I’m doing all I can to detox on this road to health...no more guessing here! Thank you, Dawn, for all you do to help on this journey!

I had SIBO so bad before explant and antibiotics did not work, only seemed to make things worse. I was very ill too. Your situation seems much like mine. Was on thyroid meds too. I explanted 17 months ago and didn’t find the Group until after. Started on the diet 3 months after and supplements 4 months. It was a rough go at first but so was the 2 1/2 years with SIBO. I was willing to do anything. I was on my knees. Within a short time after getting on diet and supplements my SIBO subsided. I mean I could barely eat anything. Not garlic, not onions, not broccoli, all which I love. Could not drink a whey protein shake. I was malnourished and slowly dying. I reacted to everything. I had a giant purple rash on both my lower legs. I did everything Dawn said and I slowly got better!! My last HTMA was so much better!! Adrenal fatigue healing and no more thyroid meds!!! I can workout again! I can work all my hours without feeling like passing out!!! Please work with her and you will heal! SIBO is rooted in fungi! I couldn’t poop without a colonic before I started this protocol!!! God bless you. You came to the right place!

I’m very hopeful now that I’ve found this group and am following the four-step protocols to healing from BII. I’ve been following the protocol for a couple of months now and my stomach is feeling stronger. I got my HTMA results back yesterday, had a good hour-long consult with Dawn Ryan Strohm and am anxiously awaiting my new supplements.

I started seeing another naturopath last year (I have since quit) and have followed his protocol for over 6 months. I did not do any real healing until I started the protocol recommended from this site. In addition to no real healing, I spent $350 an hour to consult with him plus $850 per month on supplements for over 6 months. It was about $6500 for 6 months of consults and supplements!

In turn, with this protocol, I paid $255 for an HTMA including an Initial consult with Dawn and then $465 for an hour-long consult with her which includes 3 months of supplements. In addition to that, I get three more emails with her if I have any questions or concerns. Even if I use up my three emails, I can have an hour-long consultation with her for $95/hr. These prices are very doable compared to what I was paying.

What we are getting through Dawn and her admins and this site, is unbelievable to what is being charged by others. I feel very fortunate to have found all of you and my pocketbook thanks you!

Big moment in realizing I’ve had some great healing. Last year I couldn’t watch fireworks without my sunglasses on and when they were really bright I had to close my eyes. Last year I also very soooo anxious with each really loud blast. This year I felt pretty close to normal self. I still am bothering by lights daily and my eyes are still not right but this was a huge improvement!

Dawn, I thank God on a regular basis for you. You see I had no idea why I was sick and feeling the way that I was in the way I looked and with the pain. I prayed and I prayed and then when I woke up one morning the first thing I saw on Facebook (which the Lord knows that’s my first place that I look instead of getting down on my knees first) was you talking about breast implant illness and Doug Kaufman. Then as I listened you picked my name for the cookbook and I knew you were a God send then! I never win anything I’m never picked for anything! My name never gets drawn at a function for free things so I knew this wasn’t just an accident and I know that God works miracles and works wonders. I have been praying to him to help me, Lord show me the way and help me find the answers and there it was! Shocking how one woman can change so many lives for the good and I do thank you my dear so very much and appreciate all of your videos all of your insight with all of the information along with Doug Kaufmann and Know The Cause. It has enlightened me, opened my eyes, kept me alive/healing and telling others so they can heal themselves. So thank you my dear, you are one special lady and I appreciate and adore you and think you and I think God for you and I think God for healing me and bringing you to help all of us!

Wow, this really makes it clear. Our {Phase One} diet being #1 and that allows the minerals to be absorbed. No wonder we are feeling better. I don't even want to know how bad off my body was before. Still detoxing, know that this too shall pass. I have so much confidence in this protocal, no it isn't fun, I miss sugar, grains, caffeine, but in the long run know that being careful with what we put in our bodies because much of it is poison. Thank you Dawn Ryan Strohm and Paula Raves for this amazing help and making it so understandable to me.

I am just starting on this journey to recovery. I am 2 months into the diet, soon to start month 3. I Explanted 2 1/2 Yrs ago and my recovery has been hard and not very successful. I somehow found this group and really believe this is going to save my life. I had silicone under muscle for 28 yrs. Very quickly becoming ill about 8 yrs ago. Doctor after doctor, test after test and still no answers. I was diagnosed with high BP and I was down to 95 lbs. My BP was uncontrollable even with meds. Very scary! I just want to say that since I started the diet, my BP is normal with no meds! I received my HTMA results and my consult with Dawn and I am now on the path to right what is still wrong (which is quite a bit.) I just want the new ladies to know that I believe in this protocol 100%! I am so excited to start my life. I absolutely adore Dawn and Paula and feel like I WILL recover. I am more encouraged than I have ever been and will follow this protocol to the T. Hang in there!

I followed the diet to the letter for 6 weeks. Couldn't believe how one pound at a time of that horrid inflammation started to come off. I could actually see bones in my feet...crazy after so many years of a puffy, swollen body from the BII. I have tried to re-introduce some foods back in....only to be reminded that I am not well yet. Dang. It is a slow process.....I try to honor my body now that I know better. Most of all I do my best to not beat myself up about the choices I made that brought me to this place. Maya Angelou said "Once you know better, do better" ..... or something like that. I do my best to live by that adage.

My immune system was amazing via my genetic makeup. The idea that I crashed such a gift by wanting to "look" like a woman after a mastectomy is something I can never take back. It took 10 years of my sweet body fighting before I got the big middle finger and almost died. I am in year 8 of recovery from the nasty situation I put my body in....and only into MONTH 3 of the Phase 1 diet. So you see....everything I had done before was good...brought me along...but this diet has changed everything. It is not easy. I am a caterer and my claim to fame is "heritage" cooking. I am a baker that creates desserts that ohhh and ahhh any crowd. Sigh. This is not the foods I can eat now...maybe never again and some days I get sadder than I know what to do with. It has always been who I am. Silly, but true. I choose every day to live and fight the illness that tried to kill me. Crazy that ultimately it wasn't cancer. I'm 60 years old. Far from the beauty I once was. Here to tell you to keep your chin up....in 6 months....you will be offering this same encouragement to others.

I wish I’d have known about this group two years ago. I’ve spent a fortune trying to heal and feel better over the past two years and no results at all. In just five weeks on this protocol, I feel much better. My eyes are not hurting, my vision is much better, I haven’t lost much weight but I still don’t feel so heavy and look so puffy, my brain is not as foggy, my memory is better, I get dressed and do something every day, my stomach doesn’t hurt all the time. I have a ways to go but I’ve come along way in just five weeks and all I’m doing is the diet, antifungals, and probiotics so I can only imagine how good I’ll feel once I get on the supplements. Another huge change for the better is I haven’t been able to get near grass let alone walk on it for years without breaking out in a horrible rash and itch. The last few weeks I’ve been walking right across my lawn with weeds and all to get to the clothesline and no reaction at all. Five weeks ago I couldn’t even take my five-year-old to the park without ruining my day due to the grass and weed allergy. I have to add though I stick to the diet really close. The only two times I’ve eaten anything off the diet I pretty much had to because there was nothing else to eat but I didn’t eat sugar and tried to eat the least offensive food and as little as possible to get me by until I could get home to my diet-friendly food. I’m a bit OCD which is probably a good thing in this situation. Being OCD helps me not give in to cravings.

I just got home from seeing my eye doctor who’s been my doc for probably 15 years now. He was astounded at how much better my vision is. Before starting this program my vision could only be corrected to 20/40 and I needed reading glasses. Today my vision was corrected to 20/20 and no more reading glasses. He’s been worried about my vision for a while because a person has to have 20/40 vision or better to qualify for a drivers license and if my vision got any worse I would have lost my DL. He compared pictures of my cornea from two years ago to pictures of it today. Then he was really shocked. I’ve been dealing with inflammation of the cornea all these years. He let me take pictures from his computer screen of the pictures of my cornea. The difference is amazing. I knew my vision was better but to see this kind of proof feels pretty good. I told him about the protocol I’m doing and he was very interested. I didn’t tell him about my implants but told him that I’d been exposed to mold and that’s why I’m doing the protocol. Next visit I’m going to tell him about the implants. Maybe he can pass the info along and help some of his other patients.

Update---I’m at week six now and my vision is still doing much better. I normally cannot drive at night but I had to last night and I realized that I wasn’t wearing my sunglasses to block the lights from other vehicles that usually hurt my eyes so bad.

Interesting tidbit...I have always been a sugar/carb junky but tried to stop it when I found the Diet. I dabbled with the Diet for about 2 months, still eating some breads (which I LOVE) and occasional fries. Then I started really buckling down and stopped the SOY...my mainstay food source since I don't eat meat, only fish. I had stopped dairy and eggs a year ago after being diagnosed with those allergies. Yes, I thought I was going to starve. I also thought about buying stock in Gerber Baby Food since there didn't seem much else I would be able to eat.  

 

I did the HMT and spoke with Dawn, then started on the mineral balancing. Dawn said I had the highest Copper she has ever seen...not a prize that I really felt good about winning. Hmmm, I knew I better get on the stick and get going full force to prevent my symptoms from coming back.

 

You see, 31 days after my explant I felt marvelous. I had more energy than I have had in over 20 years. Many of the aches and pains simply were gone! My family couldn't believe it. My IM doctor was amazed. After seeing the pictures of my ruptured and mold-infested implants, he wrote in my chart that the issues I had over the years were due to systemic silicone.

 

Anyway, I still have a few of the symptoms, which are indications that the fungus is still around. I am fortunate that I don't have the awful die-off symptoms that many have. What I do have as confirmation that the antifungals are working and die-off is happening is my almost uncontrollable craving for sweets. Good grief! I have been cooking and baking anything and everything I can find that has Xylitol and Stevia in it! I am on a first-name basis with the Natural Grocers employees because I keep running out.

 

All this to say that I am now experiencing the (ultimately positive) effects of the Diet, antifungals, and mineral balancing. Oh yes, I am not starving and my sweet cravings are diminishing. So, my message is to hang in there and keep on the protocols so the much-needed healing will happen.

I can tell you from my own experience, right after explanting I felt great! Allergies disappeared, I had energy, mentally clear.. fantastic.... that was August 2016. It lasted a few months, by Feb 2017 I was taken to the emergency room with possible stroke symptoms (this happened a couple of times in the past when I had implants)... all tests came back normal.

 

Tested for MS, all kinds of cardio tests.. at the same time my chronic constipation was worse, so more tests... everything came back normal. I kept telling the doctors I feel swollen inside... they didn't listen. By the way, I had been eating a paleo diet for the last couple of years. Oh, and my allergies came back, the loss of energy.

 

Everything... basically I crashed about 6 months after my explant and feeling so great. I started to doubt if the implants were really the cause of my problems, but didn't regret removing them.

 

Then I found Dawn’s group and the 4-Step Protocol... my inflammation is down considerably, my constipation is pretty much a thing of the past. As for my energy, some days are good some are not, but it IS improving. Is this protocol the miracle that happens in an instant, no it isn't. Do I struggle to stay on the diet, yes I do! This protocol is more like a relationship…you have to build a good foundation to have it last a lifetime!

It's so true for anyone just starting the diet even without the antifungals. I was working with a FMD who was trying to fix my stomach issues in January of this year and I was put on an elimination diet and had a horrible herxing reaction for the first 3 weeks. When I found Dawn and this group this summer, the diet was easy for me. Then I did the hair mineral test and started the supplements and antifungals. I immediately felt better. It's been 4 months for me and I feel sooo much better! Time for my next hair mineral test soon! Hang in there ladies it's sooo worth it!

Thank you to Dawn, the admins and anyone else assisting these efforts ...for your help. I am in the middle of my 4-Step protocol and I am seeing noticeable results!!!! Thank you, Lord!!! I may not always comment but I am lurking in the shadows gleaning from the wealth of wisdom offered here!!! God bless each who helps and God bless each one in the group who needs the healing hand of the Lord upon their bodies!!!

I want to truly thank Dawn, and the admins for all the help they have given me so far!!! I feel like I'm turning a corner so to speak from feeling I was on death's door to feeling alive again!!! I believe explanting and getting on this protocol is helping my body to heal. I am older and had implants in for 27 years total so it will take awhile. I no longer feel weak and like passing out at work. I am up for some exercise now. Everything is not overwhelming anymore!!! I want to help others get to this place!! I have a ways to go but am truly seeing a light at the end of the tunnel!! Thank you so very very much!!! With so much love and respect!

I battled SIBO for 2 1/2 years (with antibiotics and colonics which didn’t work) before explant on May 3rd, 2017 and felt better after explant but no improvement in my SIBO. I was still exhausted, weak, dizzy easy and felt like passing out. Decided to heal from surgery first so I waited 3 months before I decided to try this 4-Step Protocol.  The Phase One diet was hard for me at first, I felt hungry all the time and had blood sugar issues. Dawn explained to me it was the fungi starving and trying to make me slip and go off the diet. I understood this because I had a Biotoxin Illness when I got sober 29 years ago. The first couple of weeks were hard but worth it. I did the hair mineral test through Dawn and it uncovered imbalances in my minerals and that my adrenals were exhausted. It got a lot easier once I started the supplements she recommended. I was taking natural antimicrobials (prescribed by my naturopath) that kill both SIBO and fungi but I wasn't doing the rest of the protocol steps so nothing was working before and after explant. I was on the fodmap diet and I ate very clean but ate brown rice and oatmeal and sweet potatoes. He had me on high doses of garlic, oregano oil and berberine and tons of digestive aids. After only a couple weeks being on the 4-Step Protocol along with probiotics and antifungals, my SIBO disappeared!!! I was astonished!!! I understand the struggle and the relapses because it happened to me. My food intolerances disappeared!!! I have 2-3 good sized bowel movements a day now and can take psyllium now. I have no stomach pain at all!!! This 4-Step protocol works!

I cannot begin to state how very grateful I am for finding this group, and Dawn Ryan Strohm's teachings and guidance. It is now a year since my explant, and I am, once again, a functioning individual. I started the detox diet six weeks before explant. I have continued to stay on the Phase One diet. This is a way of life now. I was totally debilitated due to the toxic poisoning. I ordered the Hair Mineral Test, conferenced with Dawn at length, learned about the imbalances in my body, and how to improve them. I am grateful for finding this group, and I am indebted to Dawn Ryan Strohm for sharing all her knowledge, and giving me her guided assistance, in helping me to heal. I do not believe I would have recovered without the information, and support, that I received from her and the other admins. Forever grateful

I'm still pretty new in the process but thought I'd share anyway since I've had so many positive things happen just since starting the 4-Step Protocol.

  • Not one migraine! I used to get several a month. Not even an inkling of a headache!!

  • REM quality sleep. I still struggle with insomnia but it's not near as bad. The sleep quality is impressive.

  • Not one stomach ache. I've struggled for years with stomach issues and constipation. I am now a regular girl that isn't in the bathroom half the day in pain.

  • Mood. This has been a huge improvement. My mood is level all day. I haven't had anxiety and anger flares just seems to have taken a one way trip out of my feelings!

  • Weight loss. Weight just seems to be falling off with little effort. It might be inflammation weight but it's a nice side effect :-)

  • Memory. This one has surprised me the most. I'm actually remembering people's names. And information! The brain fog lifted pretty quickly after explant but my memory has been so much better!

  • I have some pretty severe food allergies and haven't tried re-introducing any of the foods yet. Out of everything, this area getting better is why I choose to do the protocol.

Been on full protocol for 2.5 months. Went and got my hair done last week and my hairstylist couldn’t believe how much my hair had grown in 6 weeks! She said in the 10 years she’s been doing my hair she doesn’t remember it growing so fast! Work the protocol and it will work for you!

Although I am still dealing with mild sleeping issues and hair loss. I am thankful that I feel so much better mentally and physically! I’m now on my 2nd month of antifungals and the protocol. I am 3 months out of explant. Feeling better every day. Thank you, Dawn Ryan Strohm, for being my support along the way. Thank you for reminding me that things take time and little by little I will see results. Patience is definitely a virtue 😀 Feeling so much better already! These are the symptoms I’ve had in which I’ve seen improvement: Hot (occasionally) Sweaty (occasionally) no appetite, jittery, minty sensation from chest up, tired (only when I lose sleep) disconnected, sad, frustrated, confused, pressure in my chest, fluttering my chest, numbness in my hands and arms, anxiety or adrenal rushes.

Hey ladies…it’s been a while since I posted here. I started the protocol a month before explant and just wanted to share my progress. Thank you, Dawn, for helping me get it right. I know I still have work to do but I’m so happy I started the protocol first. I started feeling better within a week of starting.

Just a little update… I am 14 months post explant. I remember this time last year thinking "if this is what the rest of my life is going to be I would rather be dead." Over the course of the last year I have been plagued with hives and rashes, severe anxiety, and many food intolerances just to name a few. I can say that with the help of Dawn Ryan Strohm and The phase 1 protocol, I am feeling better. I am about 60 to 70% better and it has been a long journey. Just know that you are not alone and what you are experiencing is real. But there is hope! Dawn has been a gift from God and can truly help you heal. I was very skeptical about the process can honestly say that it has helped! May God Bless you all and help heal you and guide you through your journey!

I am 52, rough texture saline for 17 years, explanted for 2 1/2. I was extremely sick with multiple symptoms but respiratory and fatigue were the worst. Was 80% better right after explant but have gone through multiple setbacks. I have just started the protocol but can already notice a difference. I stopped the herbal antifungals and it has helped with the die-off symptoms. I initially started with just the Phase One Diet and the oregano oil, which I had been taking previously, but the symptoms got pretty rough. Headache, nausea, depression, no appetite, etc. Once I added in the supplements Dawn recommended and stopped the antifungals it got much better. I believe we will add them back in later. I can tell you that I have finally come to realize that stress is also a HUGE factor in our recovery. It is extremely important to find a way to manage any stressors in your life. I have recently started doing yoga and that is helping me. Deep breathing exercises, meditation, finding a way to take some time for yourself, have all been helpful. This has been the hardest part for me but I am finally starting to understand how important it is in our recovery. I am so grateful to have this site, and all of you, to share this journey with!

Ok, ladies, I am just amazed at how much inflammation my stomach area was holding. I have not lost any weight at all! I have been having symptoms of detoxing but not every day. I still have my implants so I'm not pushing methylation too hard. Overall, with the diet and supplements, I'm feeling really good. Following Dawn Ryan Strohm's detox protocol! I also need to add that before starting this protocol I ate a clean organic diet with no gluten, dairy, caffeine or sugar for 3 years. I had to cut only 4 fungi foods from my diet. So my point is that those 4 fungi foods were feeding the fungi and causing the inflammation. Just WOW!

Lovely ladies...Please please at least do your HTMA. After working with Dawn, my symptoms and pain got so much better! I too love to get on here and read stories and comments...BUT I get so frustrated with all the different suggestions and ideas to try this or that...I DID THAT TOO!! This is one of the reasons these beautiful and compassionate women started this site. To HELP. Please read the protocols in the files. Please suggest women read the files. We have all wasted hundreds and thousands of dollars just looking for some relief and healing. It will save many women from prolonged suffering to do so. Dawn is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. To be honest, I KNOW I would not have the patience God has given her to do what she does for us. Her heart is pure and willing to help. With so many women added each month, it seems to just snowball...until the bone broth and charcoal mud packs seem to be the answer for a whole page! Those are great, don't get me wrong, but testing your hair will give you ladies the scientific evidence of what is happening in your body and Dawn can read that and guide you to the help you need. Thanks, ladies. I don't want anyone to have to put up with symptoms a day longer than they have to. Peace and Love.

A big THANK YOU, Dawn! I received the box of supplements this past Tuesday and started taking them that night. I woke up Friday morning with no symptoms of neuropathy, AT ALL, after suffering for weeks with excruciating flare-ups almost daily. Friday I decided to start a project I had wanted to begin in January, by my hands have been chronically inflamed, sore, and pretty much non-functioning from pain. I spent 4 hours painting the siding outside of our cabin...feeling no pain in my hands but sure that I would be up all night again with the familiar horrendous pain. Saturday morning...no pain any where. Started painting again at 830am and quit just after 8pm. No pain. Finished the job today around 4pm and I feel great! My man is shocked, yet very happy the supplements worked so quickly and we have hope now that I am finally on the way to health. Thank you…thank you…thank you!

A very sincere THANK YOU, Dawn!! To everyone following this site: I know all of us who have/had symptoms/issues from our implants is more than eager to rid our bodies of all the crap we may be carrying and are trying desperately to feel better and get back to normal. In doing so we frantically order supplements that we have heard others are taking, try different things that others are doing and end up no better off or worse. The above comment from Dawn was about me. I just had a VERY informative conference call with Dawn reviewing the results of my Hair Mineral Test. Despite following the Phase 1 diet, taking the correct probiotic, trying different antifungals (some that were not on the list in the files here!)...I was apparently doing myself some damage with extreme die-off. Ladies, PLEASE...order the HMT, wait for your results, consult with Dawn and go from there...before spending any money and time trying to detox on your own!!! Dawn's consult was highly informative and most important...the plan of action was specific to ME!!! as everyone's results may be a little different and every one individual may need something a little different to help them detox. So....order your HMT ASAP. After your explant is done and you are ready to start a detox, you should have the results of your HMT and your phone consult with Dawn and be ready follow the protocol in the files here along with whatever else YOUR BODY SPECIFICALLY NEEDS to properly detox. I wasted 7 weeks trying to do it alone...please don't make the mistake I did!! I am now very excited and hopeful that I am NOW on the PROPER road to health. Thanks again, Dawn!

Ok, ladies, I did the HMTA. The results are in and I am disgusted! I am showing low levels of Arsenic, Uranium, and Cadmium in the toxic element department and very high off the chart levels of Copper and Tin in the nutritional elements. Which in turn all this metal toxicity has given me an imbalance in several minerals that I need to work on.

This is one of the better tests that I've ever had done. It really does speak volumes and Dawn is so knowledgeable and supportive of her suggestions as to why and how to detox and balance out the minerals. Dawn was able to tell me symptoms I am having before I even told her just by reading the test results and of course with her years of experience in this area.

Our bodies are so complex and although detoxing is very scary I feel like Dawn would be a very trustworthy and compassionate person to get me thru the process. It was exciting and overwhelming listening and learning about the results.

Very educational and after the call I did my own research and Dawn was right on target with reasons we suffer and the protocols to fix it!! Thank you, Dawn Ryan Strohm, for all your support, compassion and knowledge while I get thru my BII journey!

Hi Ladies! Kind of excited to say that after a year of working with Dawn....my numbers are finally manageable! My Copper levels were the 2nd worse that she had seen and I am now within the normal range. I did her protocol and it was icky! That's the best way to describe the detox...it was just gooey. But I feel so much better! My health has been improving by leaps and bounds. I'm really not on FB much anymore...that's what happens when you improve. I just wanted to say to my Sister's; stay diligent and keep the faith ---- you WILL get better!

Hi Everyone, just wanted to post an update, 4 weeks post explantation. A little background: The last six months I had extensive blood/hair analysis and was found to be loaded with mercury, aluminum, several bad bacteria, several food sensitivities, genetic methylation mutation, autoimmune and Hashimotos. I was on Naturethroid prior to placing myself into the care of an Integrative Medicine doctor. After taking his advice on supplements and diet I was able to get off of the Naturethroid and my blood work, tested every six weeks, revealed improvements. However, I still had implants in and I was still very sick. Prior to surgery, my blood work revealed that I no longer had Hashimotos, my liver was great, my thyroid was perfect. My mercury level had decreased by 65% and my aluminum down to normal. On December 19th I had my explantation surgery. Immediately after surgery, I felt better. My joint pain had lessened and the incessant itching was gone and I had less brain fog for about a week and a half. Those symptoms returned so I knew that I had much more work to do in order to get better. I made an appointment with Dawn for a consultation. I started the antifungals that she advised (my surgeon was kind enough to prescribe them for me) and I started the Phase One Diet on January 1.

Yesterday, I drove 14 hours to pick up a piece of furniture that I found on Craigslist. This is a huge milestone for me because for the last several years I could drive no more than 3 hours without falling asleep at the wheel. Another thing that I have noticed is that I can solve problems better.....still need improvement with the brain fog though because in my case it is quite severe. I have less itching, especially around my chest and shoulders. I have tons of energy. My attitude is joyful. After just the 7th day of the antifungals, I started to herx and so am cutting down the dosage and maybe replacing with herbal antifungals....we will see. Apparently, these fungi are pretty pissed off that I'm taking these meds and starving them out with the new diet. Anyway, I am very grateful to Dawn Ryan Strohm and to this group. Thank you, everyone.

I just would like ALL the ladies who have read this to know... I WAS NOT getting better until I began phase 1 diet...it's been 4 months, natural antifungals, hair analysis, and supplements. The crazy and tormenting buzzy, stabbing, pressure in my stomach and ribs is gone. I still get weird stabbing burning bursts, but tolerable. BUT still, fungi ridding to be had!!! Stupid fungi! I too was just thinking detox detox detox. That too is important, but the mycotoxin overload was my key. Can I get all the silicone that may have gone all over....I don't know, but if I can get my good bacteria back in my gut and body and into homeostasis the way God intended, I may. I just want to save women from all the money and aggravation. Please have your hair analysis done to see what your body is telling you. Dawn Ryan Strohm truly can help. I explanted 9.17.15. I did not start feeling really good until I started the protocol on 9.15.16..a year later!

There is amazing hope ladies.

 

I had saline implants for 18 years. Five years ago I started having many (20) or more symptoms. For three years I ran from Dr. to Dr. trying to figure out what I had, because I was convinced by my symptoms and energy level that it was something bad. Only thing was is everything was checking out fairly normal.

 

After being away on vacation and having a flare-up of swelling on my lip and eye, my daughter's back home started to research. ..whatever is with her everywhere she goes? Bingo, her toxic implants.

 

I got on this Facebook page, spoke to Dawn Ryan Strohm for 45 on the phone, listened to all her advice and steps to getting better.

 

One week later I was scheduled for removing my implants and getting a lift with the amazing Dr.Feng in Ohio.

 

Today 15 months later I feel amazing! Sugar-free, toxin-free and free of health issues! Read the protocol and do it!!!!! God Bless

With so many new ladies joining the group, I wanted to post a little encouragement... My name is Jenna. Poi Poi is my dog, she handles all my social media ; )

I am 8 months post explant, and have worked with Dawn and followed the protocol here, along with support and some additional detox methods from my wonderful naturopath. I am not out of the woods yet, but I know I will be.

 

Detox and healing is a very slow process, but I am still getting better every day. My guess is, for me, it will be a year or more before I am 100%. When I was at my worst and I heard others talking about a year, I thought I couldn't survive that long.

 

So here's what I want you to know...

 

You will not be as sick the whole time. Some symptoms will fall l away fast, others go more slowly. But you will be getting better along the way. Energy will return, the pain will fade and life will be so much better as you continue to heal.

 

Here is a list of symptoms I no longer have:

  • Extreme fatigue. Unable to work, do household chores, or be social

  • Severe chronic pain across base of skull, neck, and between shoulder blades. So painful I could never get comfortable. Not sitting, not laying down. Not leaning back on the couch. Not even able to accept a hug from my husband.

  • Pressure headaches

  • Neck pain, unable to turn to the right or look up

  • Low back/pelvic floor muscle tension and pain

  • Achy joint pain, especially hips

  • Right jaw/TMJ issues

  • Muscle pain, achy like the flu

  • Weakness. Difficult to stand, climb stairs, carry grocery bags

  • Heart palpitations

  • Anxiety

  • Irritability

  • Extreme mood swings

  • Horrible dizziness/vertigo

  • Vibrating/buzzing sensation overall

  • Feeling like I was about to pass out

  • Trouble breathing. Constant tightness in chest, like lungs were constricted

  • Nausea

  • Constant thirst

  • Chronic constipation

  • Bloating

  • Random sudden onset food allergies

  • Frequent, urgent urination

  • Extreme brain fog and forgetfulness. Hard to concentrate

  • Clumsiness

  • Lightheadedness

  • Motion sensitivity, grocery stores, crowds, patterns, shadows on the ground

  • Unable to tolerate fluorescent lights/computer

  • Soft, blurry vision. Hard to focus to read

  • Sensitive to noise

  • Hearing distortion/cutting out

  • Unable to sleep, severe pain at night

  • Sleep apnea

  • Extremely sensitive to cold and heat

  • Hair loss and thinning (my hair is coming back!)

  • And here’s what I still am working on:

  • Tension/mild pain at base of skull and right shoulder that comes and goes. Many days 100% pain free

  • Tire easily and am still limited in energy, but nothing like the crushing, incapacitating fatigue. This is starting to rapidly improve. I am working and starting to have fun again

  • Ringing in my right ear

One last thought...

 

I remember women posting a similar list when I was still very ill. I carried it around and looked at it often, wondering if she was real and I could dare have such hope.

 

So I want you to know that my experience is real. This is not internet craziness. This me. I am getting better and you can too. You're in the right place. You are on the right path.

 

Take a deep breath and know it's a long journey ahead, but you are going to be okay. Awesome healing love to all...

I was completely bedridden for 2 years with my silicone ones! And I had this amazing career as a traveling model, it wasn't even 4 months after those implants that I had to quit that career because I was just so tired, wanted to sleep all the time. Then it just got worse and worse, had horrible brain fog, fatigue, my body ached all the time, was dizzy, got diagnosed with fibromyalgia even, tendinitis, thyroid issues, and much more.

 

Went to over 10 doctors begging for help and none of them could figure out what was wrong with me. I was giving up hope, sometimes I thought maybe it was just all in my head. Or maybe it was just a part of getting older. I was always such a driven, go-getter! Just wasn't like me. People would always tell me, that I looked fine. But no one could understand what I was feeling. I seriously thought my life was over. Even applied for disability.

 

Then my mom figured out what was really the issue, she had been researching my symptoms online and found something about Breast implant illness, told me about it! I started doing research and found Facebook groups and added myself to them. Started talking to other women going thru the exact same things as me and they gave me hope, let me know I wasn't alone. Then I found Dawn who went thru it herself and had worked with a man who also had a detox protocol.

It took surgery and 4 months of strict diet, lots of supplements and some rest to get my life back. I now have no symptoms, my thyroid, fibromyalgia; tendinitis issues are just gone, no more brain fog. I'm full of energy and full of life again. And I have my drive back. I work a minimum of 45 hours a week, going to school full time to become a physician assistant. Want to be able to help other women like me, who have a disease they couldn't figure out. I want to be able to help them figure out what the root cause of their problems are and a way to fix them. There is hope!

I saw over a dozen different doctors, including a cardiologist, neurologist, a couple of different PCPs, an ENT, a rheumatologist, an endocrinologist, an orthopedic spine doctor and more. I had MRIs, X-Rays, gallons of blood tests, etc, etc and nobody could find anything wrong with me.

 

I was very very ill and wasn't going to live like that, so I started looking for other answers. When I landed on the breast implants info, it was like reading my story...

 

Yes, my symptoms could have been from something else. But WHY did I have all these seemly unrelated symptoms with no explanation?? Breast Implant Illness was the only thing that explained the connection to ALL of them... I explanted in Nov and am doing so much better! I'm not 100% yet, but I know I will be... And I'm so thrilled to get my life back! (Poi Poi has been following the 4 Step Protocol outlined in the files of our group and on her way to regaining health.)

Hi Ladies, Good News!.... I am one month out on the Detox Protocol and Phase 1 Diet and I am feeling so much better. I had implants for Breast Cancer reconstruction in December 2014.

 

Became very ill shortly after with severe joint and muscle pain, fatigue, brain fog, and the list goes on....read an article on Facebook from Wake Up World about Breast Implant Illness and a big light turned on. Did a lot of research and went to my surgeon with tons of information, which he read and asked him if he had ever done the Explant En Bloc procedure. He had and ended up doing emergency surgery on me because my right side blew up to the size of a cantaloupe !! Turned out there were three ruptures on my right side...

 

Eventually, I found Dawn and this support group, did the hair mineral test and consult with Dawn before Christmas and began my program a month ago. I have lost 10 lbs of inflammation, sleep is becoming normal...tried around 9:00 pm and wide awake at 7:00 am instead of the other way around!

 

Though my joint pain at night has increased I know that is due to the toxins being released. I no longer get violent headaches at night and my brain fog is improving. I have been dealing with autoimmune disorder symptoms since February 2013 when I had a total robotic hysterectomy due to cancer, where the plastic mess in my abdomen was torn causing a release of toxins in my system.

 

I was told I had Rheumatoid Arthritis and it wasn't till the implant illness that I figured out it was all connected to toxins in my system . Sooo I am happy to say I am now Flat chested because my real breasts and my fake ones tried to kill me:)!!! Hang in there Gals, stick with the diet and Protocol...there is light at the end of the Explant!

Have to share...I started the detox probably about 2 months ago...I have been detoxing for a little over 2 years since I had a MRI and retained gadolinium but I incorporated Dawn's program too...two things I have experienced...my hair is NOT falling out like it was...

and if I get busy, miss a day of supplements, I actually missed almost two days....what did I experience?...that 'black cloud' came back and hung onto me...I felt the 'down feeling', the burning in my legs came back with a vengeance (not to say it's gone but it was tolerable)...not even 2 DAYS and this started happening...

I cannot encourage ALL of you to get on board...yes you'll feel the detox stuff at times...but it will pass, and you'll get a glimpse of 'feeling good'...Friday and Saturday I walked around thinking...is that what it feels like to feel GOOD???...I almost felt as if I was 'high'...this was just too happy...too much of a positive outlook on life...I prayed HARD for the Lord to lead me to someone that could help me, that would love me as a sister in Christ...and He did.

Am I perfect? Have I fallen off the wagon as far as the diet...you betcha...but I get back on and I persevere...I know I am in the right place, doing the right thing...

If NOTHING else, her program is not only supporting me tremendously as I walk day by day getting not only the toxins/metals from the implants out but also the heavy metal from the MRI. "Thank you, Dawn"

I would like to take this time to give everyone an update and an overview of my journey so far. I was explanted Sept. 12, 2014. I had silicone implants for 23 years. The L) implant was ruptured and the R) implant had leaked by about 1/3. My implants have flecks of black in them which I was told by Dr. Kolb that it was most likely mold.

 

I had been sick for years and was gradually getting sicker and sicker. By the time I went for surgery I had 20+ symptoms. I started Dawn's protocol in Nov. 2012 after doing the hair test. I was taking probiotics, natural antifungals and doing the phase 1 diet.

 

By the second hair test, I was feeling a little better but progress was slow and my hair mineral test didn't look that much better. My second consultation was in the 1st week of April. At that time Dawn suggested that I needed Rx antifungals and was more aggressive with the supplements.

 

The biotoxin illness had created havoc in my body and my adrenals were also shot. Fortunately, I have a nurse practitioner who was willing to prescribe Rx antifungals and I have been rotating Lamisil and Sporanox on a monthly basis since April. Now, I am going to be honest, I was terribly disappointed that I wasn't seeing more improvement at the time but Dawn reassured me that these things take time.

 

I started feeling much better after about a month of being on Rx antifungals. I just had my consult last Friday for my 3rd hair mineral test and I am happy to say the results show much improvement!

 

The heavy metals are coming way down and my adrenals are getting better. Best of all I feel better! I am still doing the protocol along with Rx antifungals for a couple more months. I had my house checked for mold and my basement shows I have a problem so dealing with that is next on my list.

 

The main reason I am writing this is to let you know that this protocol does work if you stick with it!!

 

I was really hoping that surgery alone would be the cure all but for me and I believe for the majority of us it is just the first very crucial step to getting well.

 

Some people don't find following this diet all that difficult. Again, I am going to be honest and admit that this diet has been a challenge for me but it does get easier. What was more difficult, was being sick.

 

Many thanks to Dawn for helping me get through this horrific ordeal! Good luck to all of you on your journey back to wellness and thank you for being here!!

Wanted to tell you that I got my Hair Mineral Test results back Friday morning. Dawn spent a good hour with me on the phone going over each and every item. After years of searching for answers from numerous doctors/experts, she pinpointed my issues precisely. Asked if I had high blood pressure based on my test results.

 

I had just been put on BP meds 6 months ago and have never had high BP in my life. The heavy metal toxicity in my body was very high. No wonder I've felt like I was dying over the past 8 years! Have been to the ER numerous times and was on Life Support once for three weeks.

 

From the test results she said I was in the early stage of Adrenal Malfunction and recommended supplements to help me detox as quickly as my body can handle. I am also on the Phase 1 diet. My "Tin" level was extremely high which results in headaches, insomnia, breathing difficulty, depression & anxiety according to Dawn.

 

I can attest to that since I have all of those. I encourage all of you to have this test done since it can guide you on the path to wellness. I am finally seeing the light at the end of this tunnel and dare to have hope again.

Just want to give DawnRyan Strohm some major props! I’ve been on the protocol for a month now and finally started getting the boost. I’ve been going non-stop for about a week and love it. I went from barely getting out of bed to this! Plus I’ve already lost17 pounds. I actually got to meet Dawn and Doug Kauffman in Branson just a few weeks ago. Thanks Dawn for all you do. I am finally getting my life back.

Did you know that fungus and mold can be picked up from catheters and surgical instruments? I just read this.

 

When I had bi-lateral mastectomy and reconstruction in 2011, followed by a heavy dose of Cipro, followed by thrush, that should have been a signal to my surgeon that something was amiss.

 

Then thrush again when expanders came out and implants placed. Systemic symptoms started immediately after surgery in 2011. Rash on abdomen followed. Overgrowth of Candida albicans diagnosed from stool analysis in2014.

 

And the story goes on until Dawn Ryan Strohm came into the picture. Just another shout out to Dawn for all her good work. Do your research and don’t settle for doctors who don’t listen. I learned my lesson -big time. Explanted in July 2014 and working with Dawn to get my health back.

Dawn Ryan Strohm I think you have saved my life. Ever since starting my round of Diflucan my systemic symptoms have stopped. And to think for three years I have suffered with these symptoms. Who knows what damage has been done. Ladies, listen to Dawn!

I got my hair analysis results today! I live in Canada and our dollar is lower than the US dollar, so I’d been waiting, hoping it would rally. Last month I decided it wasn’t going to happen any time soon, so I ordered the test anyway. So glad I did! Got some critically important information. It should make a huge difference in how I’m feeling as I work toward resolving the issues. I wish I’d ordered the test sooner.

I just wanted to give everybody an update, so here goes. I am now 5 1/2 months post explant and 3 months on Dawn’s detox protocol, getting ready to do 2nd hair mineral test.

 

Overall I am doing better, but still, have a ways to go. In my experience, this is not a straight line upwards, but a lot of ups and downs and everything in between.

 

What I am noticing is that I am having more and more good days! Some of my symptoms are completely gone and some are still there to a lesser degree and some come and go.

 

This is a crazy complicated illness, but I am making progress. For me, it was a gradual decrease in health over many years until the last year and I started declining rapidly. I’m sure it’s because by then I had no immune system left. It only makes sense that the road back to health will take time.

 

I wish there were a quick fix for this illness, but I don’t think it exists. I am finally accepting that this battle will take a long time and I am in it for the long haul. Progress is progress even if it is slow.

 

I just want to encourage all of you to keep going and give it time. This protocol is not easy, but I do believe it is working for me one day at a time.

 

I want to thank each one of you for what you share on this site. I have learned so much, but mostly it helps me to know that I am not alone in this illness and that is a great comfort for me. Prayers and best wishes to all of you on this journey!

I just wanted to say another major issue I had has subsided! I had really bad PMS cramps for years....so bad they made me sick and my back and legs hurt....well, it has lessened! Since detox and explant I have had way less painful PMS and periods!...just amazing!​

Update on my detox! Well, ladies I know I’m on the right path and I’m doing my detox right because it is coming out of my skin! As soon as I started it just began to purge my body of toxins....I feel super optimistic and know this will pass...on the road to recovery!
