Another very important step in treating Biotoxin Illness from Breast Implants is the use of Antifungal Medications and/or Natural Antifungals.
*Please don't expect the medication and natural antifungals to treat this complicated illness unless you are following the Phase 1 diet! *
Fungal metabolites are difficult to treat because at a cellular level they are almost identical to our cells. The diet is always first in your protocol! Our immune system becomes compromised due to heavy metals in the breast implants and is not efficient at fighting mold/fungus. Mold/Fungus then spreads through the body systemically and deposits its poisons where it may, which then causes a myriad of symptoms we experience with the illness. We must starve it out with the diet, take a quality probiotic daily (I highly recommend Dr. Ohira's Professional Formula) and take antifungals to assist the process.
Biotoxin Illness may be treated with prescription antifungals such as Diflucan, Sporanox and Lamisil which are sytemic antifungals. Along with this you may ask your doctor for a prescription for Nystatin which is a gut antifungal. Nystatin is literally made from dirt and is perfectly safe.
The systemic antifungals do come with a warning that they may compromise liver function and your doctor may not want to prescribe them for your condition in the amounts that you need to treat biotoxins effectively. At our clinic, the doctor that I work with has never seen a patient with liver issues from using antifungal medications. He usually prescribes:
Diflucan for seven days
then every third day after that for a month
All along with Nystatin to treat the gut.
Many times he will rotate the patient to Sporanox or Lamisil every third day for a month after.
Why treat with prescription antifungals? Because in our experience the patient just gets well quicker! The truth is though you may have great difficulty getting a physician to prescribe antifungals because they simply aren't trained on what Biotoxin Illness is or how to treat it.

If you can not find a doctor that will work with you and prescribe prescription antifungals don't worry because Biotoxin Illness can be treated effectively with natural antifungals. Here is a list of natural antifungals that you may use. If there is a suggested brand it will be listed in ( ).
*Specific dosages can not be recommended unless you are a current client of Dawn’s. Dawn does state to start low and work up to the dosage suggested on the bottle. *
· Caprylic Acid (Pure Encapsulations)
· Olive Leaf Extract 500mg (Pure Encapsulations)
· Grapefruit Seed Extract 250mg (Pure Encapsulations)
· Kyolic Reserve Garlic 600mg (Wakunaga)
· Cinnamon Bark 600mg (NOW)
· Super Strength Oreganol (North American Herb and Spice)
· MCT Oil (NOW)
You may pick any one of these natural antifungals to begin your first month of treatment. However, antifungals must be rotated monthly because the fungal metabolites will get use to an antifungal over time and not be effective.
For example, try Caprylic Acid the first month, Olive Leaf Extract the second month, Grapefruit Seed Extract the third and Oil of Oregano the fourth month. Or you may begin with any antifungal you want and rotate from there!
The protocol should be followed until all symptoms of Biotoxin Illness are gone. The time this takes will vary from patient to patient depending upon their immune system. Honestly, it can take some time to treat Biotoxin Illness. I have seen great improvements in some patients within 3 months and others may take up to a year.
Please note that MCT Oil and Oil of Oregano are powerful anti-fungals. You may want start either of these in your second or third month of anti-fungal rotation.
It’s helpful to have several antifugals on hand at a time in case one ends up being too strong for you at first. That way you can swap to a different one after giving yourself a few days to normalize from the strong symptoms.
***Note, if taking a prescription anti-fungal you do NOT need to take a natural one at the same time.
