Reason for the Quinolone: Urinary tract infection
Was a safer antibiotic tried first? : No
How long did you take the Quinolone for? : 13 doses

How much have you recovered as of now?: 80%

recovery: NOTHING!!!! Sixteen doctors and every test
imaginable....they have no knowledge of how to help ...the knowledge that they
have would have never aided in any kind of recovery!
What has helped you in your recovery?: I have taken my
health into my own hands. I have had hundreds of alternative treatments,
including acupuncture, colonics, bioelectrical lymphatic drainage,
liver/gallbladder flushes, many 10 day liquid cleanses...eating only pureed
green vegetables, drinking large amounts of alkaline water on a daily basis,
eating a organic diet consisting of mostly raw veggies, many rounds of
supportive supplementation etc....
|There is no way to describe how this has
changed my life. What these drugs did to my body is just horrific.
I went from a being a woman with a urinary tract infection to a woman with upwards of 65 different symtomologies, unable to take care of my family, myself. I consider myself to be extremely fortunate to have come across the science of Dr. Robert O. Young.
I truly feel that I am here because I somehow in the middle of complete horror found the courage to totally take my health into my own hands. What this has cost my family.. I could even begin to place a dollar amount on that...this shook us to the core...my children watching me cry uncontrollably, watching me crawl up our front walkway determined to get one bag of groceries into the house when the pain was too much to bare, not being able to carry around my youngest child who was just a nine month old baby when I was given the 1st Quinolone, watching the tears stream down my husbands face as we drove around Boston trying to find a doctor to help us...him begging me to hold on and me begging him to never let our children forget me..........the tens of thousands of dollars that this cost us are nothing compared to what we have been through because of these drugs and the cover up of their toxicity.
