If you’re like me then you’re not going to settle until you’ve completely restored your health (to read my BII story, click HERE). I knew that was going to involve some deeper detox work after explant. In addition to being a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner and a Registered Nurse, I’m also a Detox Expert. Addressing all the hidden stressors in my body and detoxing at the cellular level has allowed me to completely restore my own health. A completely customized form of my BII Warrior Detox Program is now completed by all of my clients as part of a complete and holistic health-rebuilding program after explant. I am happy to say that is is now being offered as a stand-alone option with my support throughout the process for those of you who want a true detoxification program laid out for you that is easy to follow and can be tailored to your unique needs.

We have all been exposed to the same toxins bleeding into our bodies from DAY ONE of being implanted. This is not the only source of toxicity we’re exposed to today. We are truly bombarded on a daily basis. We’re living in the most toxic time in history. We’re literally born toxic. Detox work is one thing that should absolutely be included across the board after explant. Your body will NOT pull heavy metals and toxins stored deep in your tissues, organs, and cells on it’s own. This process needs to be assisted. As a holistic health practitioner I can tell you that all detox programs are NOT created equally. And there is a lot of misinformation out there about detoxing. Just the word “detox” alone means something different to everyone.

Detox should NEVER be a one-size-fits all ‘detox in a box’ kind of thing for anyone who is very sick, like those of us dealing with BII. What works for one person, could be detrimental to another, which is why it’s so important to have an experienced detox expert at your fingertips.

I also want you to know that gel bleed DOES happen over time. This means that regardless of whether you have a rupture or not, toxins and heavy metals are slowly leaching into your body from your implants. Your breast implants don’t have to look like this to make you sick:

Mine looked like this photo below and I was still sick for 5.5 of the 6 years I had them inside me:

Think of your body as a bucket. Now imagine in addition to being born toxic, the toxins that surround us in daily life are the liquid that slowly fills that bucket. With each toxic exposure your bucket becomes more full. Now add toxic implants to the picture. A toxic exposure here and there isn’t such a big deal; however, chronic exposure to an onslaught of chemicals from living with breast implants inside your body for years, not to mention the addition of physical and emotional stressors, fills up your bucket each day, and at some point the bucket begins to overflow. With breast implants it may take a few months or decades before your bucket spills over, but once it does, cellular inflammation is triggered and unwanted symptoms arise. Please note that symptoms are the last thing to appear during the development of chronic illness, so if you have symptoms, your body has been breaking down for quite some time and detox is not going to be a 30 or 60 or even 90 day process. It’s long, and intentional, and methodical; and it should become part of your lifestyle in today’s world.

The detoxification process begins, of course, by removing the root causes (breast implants are one example) of the body-wide damage. This is the first step of detoxing and healing. Then we support the body’s natural ability to detox the heavy metals and toxins left behind in our cells, tissues, organs, bones, and brain. Removing the toxins from breast implants that have accumulated over time in the body is essential to getting results and can be where health restoration begins after explant.

My customized BII Warrior Detox Program supports the body’s natural ability to detox at the cellular level, which can help you realize your greatest level of health following explant. No other detox program can accomplish detoxification at this level (not even IV chelation). There is literally NO ONE else doing this the way that we’re doing this post-explant. The products we use during this detox program have also been successful at removing silicone from the body and breaking down biofilm, making it optimal for those suffering from breast implant illness. It is one of the most comprehensive health restoration programs in the world.

My Custom BII Warrior Detox Program Consists of Three Phases:

  • Prep Phase: Prepares the cellular purification and downstream pathways for safe and effective elimination of toxins/heavy metals. We first want to make sure we prepare the body for detoxification by opening up downstream detox pathways (liver, kidneys, gut, lymph, etc.), re-establishing methylation, regenerating cell membranes so we can successfully chelate toxins out of the cells and get hormones and nutrients into the cells, up-regulating ATP production (cellular energy) and generating new mitochondria (they produce ATP), re-innoculating the gut with potent beneficial bacteria, and nourishing the liver, kidneys, and lymph so they can effectively do their jobs.

  • Body Phase: We first want to clear the body of toxins/heavy metals. Impurities move from higher concentration to lower, thus preparing for purification of the brain. In the Body Phase we begin to chelate metals from our organs, tissues, and cells in the body using true, strong binders (within their half-life, which is key) that are liposomal, so they can get passed the gut and get directly into the bloodstream where they can travel to different parts of the body. We’re also using a gut binder to help mop up toxins that get dumped into the gut. This particular binder binds in a matrix that cannot be reabsorbed via the enterohepatic circulation cycle. This is very important. We don’t want toxins being reabsorbed back into circulation. Meanwhile, we’re still supporting down-stream detox pathways/organs, cell membrane regeneration, methylation, and the mitochondria for optimal cellular energy. Additionally, we’re supporting intra-cellular glutathione production. This means that we are providing key nutrients designed to boost the body’s own innate production of glutathione (the body’s master antioxidant, necessary for detoxification). This is the only proven way to get glutathione to reach the cells. Research shows that direct Glutathione supplementation is ineffective because it is degraded in the G.I. tract. And getting it through an IV solution is a short-term solution as it’s water-soluble and only stays in the body for about 4 hours. That’s some expensive urine!

  • Brain Phase: The Brain Phase is the ultimate goal of detoxification. We want to nourish and cleanse the brain and nerve tissue using fat-soluble true binders (also within their half-life). This phase allows for deep detoxification of the cell and binds toxins at the level of the brain for safe elimination from the body. This is important because we store toxins in our brain and bones, and our brains are 70% fat. This is the reason we have neurological symptoms like brain fog, poor memory, poor word-recall, difficulty learning new things, numbness and tingling, anxiety, depression, irritability, chemical sensitivity, etc…we’re neurotoxic! During the Brain Phase, we’re continuing to support methylation, glutathione production, and binding toxins in the gut in the Brain Phase. Additionally, we’re focusing on replacing minerals lost during detox. 

I can’t emphasize enough the importance of ‘true’ binders and using them within their half-life. If true binders are not used properly within their half-life, you’ll basically be moving toxins around the body and never truly getting them out. They may end up being re-distributed into the brain, resulting in a far worse situation. For true detoxification of your cells, tissues, and organs, you need the support of an expert. This is not something you want to mess around with if you don’t know what you’re doing.

You can learn why most people are detoxing wrong HERE.

Supposed natural heavy metal chelators, such as cilantro and chlorella, proved to be too weak to bind to heavy metals long enough to get them out of the body, ultimately allowing these toxins to re-circulate back into the fatty tissue and cells of the body. These natural binders may show some binding capacity in a class beaker or lab setting. However, once in the gut, microbial activity typically eliminate and alter these plant based structures, rendering them unable to truly bind to toxins. Therefore, these natural plant “chelators” are not true binders and they act more like a street sweeper than anything else. This is quite dangerous and I’ve witnessed the damage first-hand.

This is why I only recommend true binders that can support the body’s natural ability to detoxify. Practitioners (including myself) have been using these particular products for decades with amazing results.

True binders are a tool I find critical to supporting my clients outcomes, and I personally only use and recommend the most effective binders.

***Please note, that it is not advised to use binders (including Zeolites) without the necessary supportive products for detoxification. Using a true binders in isolation can leave you completely depleted of glutathione, methyl donors, and minerals and can be quite taxing on the kidneys and liver.


During my detox program I utilize the meta-oxy test to monitor progress. It measures malondialdehyde in the urine, which is a marker for oxidative stress and cell membrane damage due to free radicals. The substance in the test vial reacts with the toxic aldehydes in the urine, specifically the malondialdehyde released when fats are metabolized. The level of malondialdehyde in the urine indicates the amount of oxidized fat; therefore, the more malondialdehyde measured in the urine, the greater the amount of cell membrane damage.


The meta-oxy test is 50 times more accurate than a blood test. The more malondialdehyde in the urine, the more significantly the urine color will change from a shade of yellow to the magenta of malondialdehyde, revealing the extent of cell membrane damage. The darker the magenta color, the more cellular damage is occurring. You can purchase your meta-oxy test HERE if you would like to see how toxic you are prior to deciding to do a detox program.

When I first started my detox work, my meta-oxy test results were higher than a 7 and I returned to a level 1 exactly 1 year after explant and almost a year of detox work. This wasn’t the end of my detox journey. I intentionally detoxed for a year and nine months post-explant and still incorporate detox work once or twice a year to keep my own toxic bucket from overflowing again. It does take time to detox and reverse chronic illness, but you can certainly get there! Just check out the testimonials at the bottom of my HOME page.

If you have explanted and are still suffering, you truly need to complete a detox program that pulls out toxins and heavy metals at the cellular level. BUT this is just one step. Most often, there is more to consider for complete healing.

Sarah has a passion for restoring health that has taken her along a path from a practicing RN, to walking away from her conventional nursing career to become a certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner,  and Breast Implant Illness and Detox Expert. She believes the solution to Reversing Breast Implant illness is about more than just the explant and that we all need to take personal responsibility for restoring our health by addressing the root causes that contribute to chronic illness: toxicity, infections, trauma, and shame. Sarah’s “pain to purpose” is using her personal experience along with her understanding about the body to guide women through the sea of mis-information about Breast Implant Illness in hopes of finding their path to true and lasting healing.

Sarah was once quite happy and comfortable living the conventional life, but she began to look at things very differently when her body started failing her after getting breast implants. Within about six months of getting breast implants, Sarah began to see her once perfect health steadily decline. She began experiencing a myriad of symptoms which no doctor could explain. No one understood what Sarah was going through. She felt completely alone in this invisible illness because on the outside she looked fine. On the inside, the discomfort of living inside her own body was maddening.

Sarah soon realized she was looking in the wrong places, for the wrong things. If she wanted to fix her broken body, she had to stop looking to treat the symptoms; she had to start looking for a cause. It was time to take her health into her own hands and find real answers. She discovered that the root cause was literally inside of her.

Sarah believes there is always a greater purpose within our struggles, and she believes that purpose for her was to learn how to heal her own body so she could then help other women like her do the same. It is Sarah’s believe that the body has an innate desire to heal if given what it needs and she focuses on teaching natural healing principles. Sarah will teach you how to Reverse Breast Implant Illness, take back your health, and live vibrantly!
