Using Carnivore to heal from Fluoroquinolone toxicity. Sharing my story to inspire others going through similar issues xx Keep fighting for your health it is worth it!!
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 dose or multiple courses before they react.
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, candida my cycle stopped and I lost a ton of weight (15kg's in a little more than a month)..
Did I mention my resting heartrate dropped to 38bpm at night when I was sleeping? This was the chronic phase that took 22months to heal.
The acute phase was terrible too and involved nightmares, hallucinations, insomnia, a racing pulse, headache, bloodspots under my skin and a feeling of death being near. (I did infact write a letter to tell my hubby what he needs to do should I die).
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 11 months I have been dirty carnivore ams strict cv for 2 of these and the gains I have felt and seen during this time is just indescribable. (Before 10months LCHF) 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 and working out. I started working out again seriously 2 months back 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!
Floxies sometimes struggle to heal. If you guys have tried everything else. This is something to look into guys!
