Ashley Tisdale is getting candid about her physical and mental health.

In one of her most vulnerable posts to date, the High School Musical alum shared a photo of herself at the beach and explained why she chose to get her breast implants removed.

The actress, 35, pointed out that she started to have consistent health problems after getting her implants.

She explained, "Years ago I underwent breast enhancement surgery. Prior to the surgery, I constantly felt my body was less than, and thought this change would make me feel more whole and more secure about myself. And for a short period of time…it did. But little by little I began struggling with minor health issues that just were not adding up—food sensitivities as well as gut issues that I thought could be caused by my implants. So, last winter I decided to undergo implant removal." 

Tisdale noted that she felt a big difference after her removal surgery, adding that she has finally learned to accept her body. She continued, "This journey has been one of growth, self discovery, self acceptance and most importantly self-love. This picture above was taken two months after my explant surgery and I think you can tell just how happy I am to finally be fully me." 

Judging by Tisdale's radiant smile and natural glow in her sunny beach pic, it looks like the Picture This actress is now much happier and thriving. 

Aside from opening up about her procedure, Tisdale also promoted her new wellness brand, Freshne. She said, "Over the years I’ve met with many holistic and non-holistic doctors and learned the importance of living a non-toxic life. I’m super excited to share with you what I’ve learned thus far, and would love for you to take this journey with me by following @frenshe, where we take an honest approach to our well-being and openly speak to health, beauty and everything in between."

The brand's website currently features health and wellness tips, as well as a few personal entries from Tisdale.

Kudos to Ashley for inspiring us all with her body positive message.
