Signs and Symptoms of Silicone Immune Toxicity Syndrome

ince 1962, many millions of women have breast implants with either silicone gel or saline with silicone linings.  Unfortunately, the silicone from breast implants can leak into the surrounding tissue and deposit itself into various tissues and organs.  The silicone breaks down into the elements silocon and silica, which cause dysregulation of the immune system.  We have put together a list of signs and symptoms of silicone immune toxicity syndrome below.

Also, we have information on diagnosis, helpful books and valuable resources for patients

The Signs and Symptoms of Silicone Immune Toxicity Syndrome are as follows:

Multipe chemical sensitivities and sensitivities to perfume, smoke and other inhalants
Muscle inflammation
Joint pain
Anxiety and depression
Hair loss
Memory loss
Foggy thinking
Night sweats
Tingling in the hands and feet
Abdominal pain
Chest pain
Other autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis and Sjogren’s syndrome, scleroderma, fibromayalgia, and multiple sclerosis
In silicone immune toxicity syndrome, the body produces antibodies against the complex that forms when silicon attaches to protein molecules in various organs, resulting in an autoimmune response.

Recommended – Test for Heavy Metals and Mineral Imbalances using Hair Tissue Analysis
We suggest getting a hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) to help you determine accurately what your body needs more of in terms of essential trace minerals and needs to eliminate in terms of toxic heavy metals and toxic mineral ratios. Toxic mineral ratios and toxic metal accumulation following long term or acute exposure can contribute greatly to degenerative conditions like silicone immune toxicity syndrome.
Essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium and sodium all have important metabolic functions. However, too little or too much of any of these essential minerals can have an adverse affect on the human body and it’s ability to recover.

How can a hair analysis help me achieve better health? If we consider that diet is what we consume and nutrition is what we retain, then we can see that discovering what your body needs when it needs it is a valuable tool in creating health.

French court says German firm must compensate for faulty breast implants | Reuters

A French court ruled on Friday that German certification agency TUV Rheinland compensate thousands of women for its role in approving faulty breast implants produced by manufacturer PIP until its 2010 closure.
The administrative court in the southern French city of Toulon ordered TUV to pay 3,000 euros ($3,200) to each plaintiff in a giant class action case concerning 20,000 victims across 14 countries, a justice official said.
Poly Implant Prothèse (PIP), the French company at the center of the scandal, sold implants globally over almost two decades until investigators discovered it was passing off low-grade industrial silicone
