November 2017 marked the start of a serious decline in health for me through a series of unfortunate events. To make a long story short. I experienced a severe adverse reaction to an antibiotic in the class fluoroquinolones. What makes this toxicity different to an allergy is that even when you stop using the medication your symptoms don’t necessarily stop. This drug can cause serious long lasting and even permanent side effects and damage leading to disability and even death. It has black box warnings by the FDA. Some reacts immediately and from only 1 pill and others need to take a higher does or multiple courses before they react.
The reasons for this reaction in some is not completely known. It took me only 4 of these pills to be severely ill. I became a floxie but was determined not to be a floxie forever! Amongst other things I developed severe allergies to many foods, histamine intollerance, digestive issues, vision issues, hearing issues, brain fog, heart rhythm issues, my teeth became translucent, my cycle stopped and I lost a ton of weight. (15kg’s in a little more than a month). A doctor concluded (amongst other things) that my mitochondria was not functioning as they should, I experienced severe oxodative stress, my thyroid was affected and I had tons of nutritional deficiencies. I was in pain (Everywhere) my joints were popping and cracking like an 80 year old’s
. I gradually and naturally progressed from a plant based to a more meat and fat based diet and felt better daily. WOW WOW WOW! The last 10 months I have been dirty carnivore and the gains I have felt and seen during this time is just indescribable. I will forever be grateful that God brought this WOE over my life. All the symptoms mentioned have gone away, have not even had a sniffle in 2 years and I have even started Ice skating. I just started working out again yesterday and can not wait to see what great things awaits! Health feels WONDERFUL! Thanks Dr Baker, Saladino and all the other Carnivore docs!!! You guys rock!
