248: The Truth about Breast Implant Illness and Loving Yourself Whatever Your Size


Like so many of us, Christina Roulund was insecure about her body. So she got breast implants at 23, hoping it would be a miracle worker on her self-esteem. Back then, there was no real data about the surgery: it was supposed to be completely safe. And for five years, she was perfectly ok (even though the boost in confidence really only lasted a few months).


But things started going wrong… (~Exhaustion, forgetfulness, depression, anxiety~). She put it down to being a new mom, but over the years it got even worse… (~Hair loss, joint pain, no libido, out of control hormones, shortness of breath~). She tried everything she could: fully detoxing her diet, ridding her home of anything toxic. But nothing worked…


Then, one evening, something on the news changed her life forever. Four women were being interviewed who had recently gotten explants (breast implant removals) to heal the same symptoms she was experiencing. They’d been suffering from breast implant illness – an issue now recognized by an increasing number of practitioners. The toxins Christina’s body was reacting to were actually coming from her implants.


She decided there and then to get them removed. Christina has been explanted over 6 months now, and feels like a brand-new woman. She has energy, motivation, and is symptom-free. And her looks? Christina just wanted to get her life back. “If I’m flat, I’m ok with that”. Power to you, sister. 👍



Why do so many of us decide to go under the knife despite the risks? We do it to feel more whole, or womanly, or confident. We want to match up to the unrealistic ideals on TV or social media. But surgery is a short-term fix. Instead, we need to start by loving ourselves exactly as we are right now.


Christina is on a mission to radically change thousands of lives by spreading the word on the **TRUTH** behind breast implants and their complications. As well as being a coach for binge and emotional eaters, she’s the founder of Size Happy, the hottest new self-love movement online.
