Crystal Hefner is finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel.

This has been a challenging year for the 30-year-old’s health. Hugh Hefner’s wife revealed on social media in March that she was battling Lyme disease and toxic mold, but after a few months, the model and DJ began to realize that her symptoms aligned with something else—a condition called Breast Implant Illness.

Initially, she just had aches, bladder pain, and brain fog (just THAT is enough to drive someone mad) but then several years ago it developed into a life-altering illness, with her becoming allergic to many foods, having intolerable pain, and then thyroid issues.

afterHefner took to her Facebook account to explain her unfortunate situation. “Over time, implants (both silicone and saline) break down and wreak havoc on your body,” she explained. “The shell on silicone and saline implants is comprised of silicone and over 40 other toxic chemicals: tin, zinc, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, formaldehyde and talc to name a few. Your immune system is constantly fighting them, leaving you vulnerable to other illnesses.”

After the implants were removed in June, she immediately felt a difference. But she’s got a long way to go and she knows that.  She said,  “Instantly I noticed my neck and shoulder pain was gone and I could breathe much better,” Hefner said. “I know I won’t feel 100% overnight. My implants took 8 years to make me this sick, so I know it will take time to feel better. I also have other illnesses to address, but with the toxic bags removed, my immune system can focus on what it needs to.”
