Drainage: The First Step to Detox Post-Explant

Drainage: The First Step to Detox Post-Explant

In the realm of post-explant detoxification, the journey to optimal wellness begins with a fundamental yet often overlooked aspect: drainage. This blog delves deeper into the significance of establishing robust drainage pathways as the initial step in the detox process after breast implant removal, shedding light on the interconnected systems that form the intricate drainage funnel. 

Understanding the Post-Explant Detox Journey:

The decision to remove breast implants often signals a commitment to reclaiming one's health, and an effective post-explant detox plan is pivotal in achieving this goal. However, the urgency to purge toxins from the body must be tempered with a strategic approach that prioritizes drainage before diving into full-scale detoxification.

Keep the following graphic of the drainage funnel in mind as you read:

The Colon: Laying the Foundation

At the base of the drainage funnel, the colon plays a foundational role. Post-explant, the body is grappling with accumulated toxins from various sources. Ensuring regular bowel movements becomes paramount, as constipation can hinder the efficient removal of waste. Incorporating bowel-moving herbs, fulvics and humics, fiber-rich diets, physical activity, and proper hydration establishes the groundwork for effective detoxification.

Symptoms of Bowel Stagnation Post-Explant:

  • Leaky gut
  • Dysbiosis
  • SIBO
  • Fungal/candida overgrowth
  • Food intolerances
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • IBS or IBD
  • Gas/bloating
  • Low serotonin
  • Neuroinflammation
  • Colon cancer
  • Abnormal immunity

Emphasizing the importance of regular bowel movements, at least 2-3 times a day, ensures that toxins upstream have a clear pathway for elimination without exacerbating post-explant symptoms.

Liver and Bile Ducts: Navigating the Middle Ground


Moving up the drainage funnel, attention shifts to the liver and bile ducts. Post-explant, the liver takes on the responsibility of filtering and processing toxins released during implant removal. Blocked bile ducts and liver stagnation can impede this process, leading to potential complications.



Symptoms of Sluggish Bile Post-Explant:

  • Gallstones
  • Nausea and abdominal pain after eating fatty meals
  • Pancreatitis
  • Fatigue
  • Acne/dull skin
  • Eczema/Psoriasis
  • Allergies
  • Mood swings
  • Migraines
  • Constipation
  • Acid reflux or GERD
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Waking between 11pm - 1am

Strategies such as coffee enemas, iodine supplementation, plant-based minerals, liver-supporting herbs, and a comprehensive cellular detoxification plan can aid in promoting optimal liver and bile duct drainage post-explant.

Lymphatic System: A Crucial Nexus

Ascending in the drainage funnel, the lymphatic system emerges as a crucial player in post-explant detoxification. The removal of implants can induce changes in the lymphatic system, necessitating intentional support to maintain fluid filtration and toxin removal.

Signs of Lymphatic Stagnation Post-Explant:

  • Inability to sweat
  • Cellulite
  • Eczema or rashes
  • Edema or swelling

Herbal interventions, lymphatic massage, regular movement, and sauna sessions contribute to supporting lymphatic flow, ensuring toxins have a streamlined pathway for elimination post-explant.

Organs and Tissues: Prioritizing Brain Health

Moving further up the drainage funnel, the focus shifts to organs and tissues, with a spotlight on brain health. Post-explant, the glymphatic system's role in waste clearance gains significance, emphasizing the need for adequate sleep as a cornerstone of drainage.

Possible Signs of Poor Brain Drainage Post-Explant:

  • Brain fog
  • Headaches
  • Memory issues

Prioritizing sufficient sleep becomes crucial in supporting the brain's glymphatic drainage system, allowing for efficient waste elimination and optimal cognitive function.

Cells: Culminating in Cellular Detoxification

At the summit of the drainage funnel, individual cells become the focal point of post-explant detoxification. Mitochondrial function is essential, and addressing cellular toxins from external sources requires a systematic approach.

Mitochondrial Dysfunction Symptoms Post-Explant:

  • Fatigue
  • Acne/dull skin
  • Eczema/Psoriasis
  • Allergies
  • Mood swings
  • Migraines
  • Constipation
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Waking between 1-3am
  • Estrogen dominance
  • Intolerance to alcohol or caffeine
  • Leaky gut
  • Chemical sensitivity
  • Inflammation or high oxidative stress
  • Insulin resistance
  • Glutathione depletion
  • Right upper quadrant pain
  • High blood pressure

Rather than rushing into cellular detoxification post-explant, establishing effective drainage from the bottom of the funnel upwards ensures a systematic and sustainable approach to toxin elimination.

Post-explant detoxification is a transformative journey toward optimal wellness, and the first crucial step is drainage. Understanding the interconnected systems of the drainage funnel, from the colon to cellular levels, provides a roadmap for a methodical and effective post-explant detox plan. By prioritizing drainage, individuals can lay the foundation for a comprehensive and sustainable detoxification journey, ultimately reclaiming their health after breast implant removal.
