The Reality of Fluoroquinolones- or- How I Became Disabled over night


Funny how we trust. We trust authority figures such as teachers, police, Doctors, political figures. It’s a funny business this trust thing. It must be in human nature to just trust that all of the above mentioned will simply do the right thing, especially Doctors. Their credo is “Do no harm” They swear an oath so why would a physician prescribe a drug that has a Black Box warning and a long ugly list of side effects for something as simple as a UTI or a sinus infection? A drug that was designed for use against Anthrax for a bad case of diarrhea? Who knows. A more thought provoking question is after treatment when patients present with severe and disabling side effects of the drug, now the patient is mentally ill. That’s another “profession” that gets a lot of undeserving respect, the psychologist. Doctors are now dabbling in psychology and assuming that patients who present with side effects of drugs are mentally ill rather then pursuing the actual medical complaints that patients present with. Here is a drug for your mental illness. The medical world has gone mad itself.
The burning question is would you take an antibiotic such as Cipro or Levaquin if you were fully informed of the possible side effects such as tendon tears, psychosis, damage to your mitochondrial DNA, clostridium difficile (deadly diarrhea) , and a very long recovery time of 5 years if you ever recover at all? It’s doubtful anyone would but Doctors hand it out like candy and victims are dropping like flies.
So what is it like to be healthy and vital and take 1 pill and literally “Wake up disabled?”.
I’ll let victims share their stories. They can tell it best.

Kelly Najera: I was a healthy 21 year old just graduating with my bachelors to work with people with disabilities. That was BEFORE levaquin. Now I am disabled. It only took 12 pills to destroy my life. Six years later I am still suffering with the effects from this drug day in and out.

Young, healthy and no prior health problems is a common theme with these drugs. Most doctors use these drugs so indiscriminately that most victims do not even have a confirmed infection. Doctors simply “throw pills” at anything that wanders into their office and currently, these dangerous chemptherapeutic drugs are the drug of choice.

Gregg Spooner was also disabled by Cipro: After 7 days on this drug, I woke up with debilitating nerve and tendon damage in my legs that spread to the rest of my body within the next 2 days. Four years later, my condition has not improved. I’ve lost my house, career, and most importantly, my old life.

I hope you as the reader are seeing a pattern here. Active, healthy people stopped dead in their tracks. Unable to physically live their lives because of a drug. Many people will say “This must be a rare side effect and every drugs has a percentage of side effects” . Here’s another good one: “These people mist be genetically weak or inferior. This is Darwinism.”
I really enjoy this one myself. Sorry but this is not the case. The drugs do damage to our DNA in the exact manner that chemotherapy does. Fluoroquinolones are classified as a chemotherapeutic drug so in the same fashion that chemo attacks and stops the replication of cells, so do fluoroquinolones. The drugs are indiscriminate in their attack of cells, they go after healthy cells the same as bacterial cells. Some cancer patients get no side effects from chemo and some fluoroquinolone users get no side effects from Cipro or Levaquin….until the very last pill. It’s the last pill that gets you. Victims report 1-2 pills disabled them and some victims report that they had 20 scripts and it was the last script that dropped them into Hell. It’s pretty diabolical stuff these drugs.

Virginia Kaplan: IV Levaquin for a suspected sinus infection, (which wasn’t) Oct. 08, immediate burning pain, head to toe. Resulted in 2 heart conditions within 4 days, wheelchair and lost my career of over 50 years. Almost 5 years and still in 24/7 pain, brain fog, lost of muscles and peripheral neuropathy.
Here’s another bizarre thing about FQ’s. The package insert warns against using these drugs on people over 50 or under 18. Let me also mention that it is done every day. Young people in the prime of their lives unable to graduate high school or go onto college. Older people who should be enjoying their golden years now disabled and rapidly degenerating from the effects and many simply dying from their “side effects”.

I hope I have your attention now. If I don’t, this will hook you for sure. Sex. Yes, sex. Victims report to me every day that these drugs devastate libido and cause sexual dysfunction. No one talks about it but it’s very real. Have a happy marriage? You can wave good by to that because fluoroquinolones have a horrific effect upon mood, emotion, mental stability and sexual function. In the “Real World” of victims, the divorce rates are upwards of 50%. Affairs within a marriage have a better rate of out come than fluoroquinolones.
Still undecided? Possibly you as the reader are saying”I took Cipro and I did just fine”.
The drugs have a cumulative effect. The damage slowly build up in the system and effects can be immediate or have a delayed onset, up to 8 months to a year. Your next prescription may be your last or the one that drops you off the cliff.
Talk to your doctor about the Black Box warning. Ask questions. Question authority. Be a rebel. Empower yourself. Be your own health advocate because it will be your future you are protecting.

    I don't think sharing one person's detox solution is as bad as the medicinal action you were advised by a "legitimate" doctor. Guess those authority figures that dispense toxins and deny they're toxic still mean a lot to you. Apparently you're not cured from doctor authority worship yet. I'd rather listen to a fringie's opinion and decide whether there's something in it for me myself while rejecting most mainstream doctors tell me.

    Boron and iodine both are great for a plethora of problems. The RDA of iodine is 150mcg which is way too low. It should be 100 times greater. I take 1000 times the RDA or 150mg. Ramp up slowly as it can and will cause Herx reactions if you jump in with 50mg. See the free download of the iodine protocol at Strontium, vanadium, cesium are other elements that people need but may be deficient in. Fukushima fallout adds to the urgency too.

    My only addition is to buy organic as much as possible, avoid GM anything. I use a mag pulser and a lightwave device from to good effect. Not that expensive and just keeps going and going. Do avoid prescription drugs and vaccines, all of them. To find local sources of good food, use

    Yep, the Health Ranger, Mike Adams, has found strange fibers, balls, and other stuff hard to describe inside Chicken McNuggets. He is setting a lab to do extensive studies on the US food supply. I am sure he will find more unusual things in USA phude supply. There seems to be a steady assault on food in the US so that no one will have access to anything except whatever the PTB would want us to have. Food tyranny is increasing.

    Lawyers won't take malpractice or wrongful death cases, basing their denial on having to prove what a doctor did to you by prescribing disabling fluorides and steroids, was something other doctors wouldn't have administered, under the circumstances. When all doctors will stick together being on the big pharma payroll, injured parties aren't able to get a sympathetic and get above this threshold, leaves no recourse today. Add to it the new euphemism and demonic phenomena of so-called "death with dignity" laws spreading across north america and we have the perfect storm of naivety and euthanasia. In washington and oregon doctors and hospitals are using it as no cost malpractice insurance to kill patients of all ages while being able to coverup malpractice and relieve themselves of liability. With DWD laws they use these deadly effective drugs that cripple your tendons and your respitory system with the old standby morphine, which nurses easily adjust the flow or drip while watching the family grieve, which in this age these sickos call a good death gives them the power of playing god. By changing euthanasia laws in the U;S. and Canada our courts have opened up pandora's box, we need to legislate anew to overturn euthanasia laws, at least get us back to where we can punish greedy relatives, doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, bishops or priests for deciding to murder our loved ones and remove Obanacare's comfort care, DWD laws and the ability of doctors to issue Do Not Resuscitate orders against patients medical directives. We have to get back common sense and do no harm by reactivating hastening death laws in washington state RCW 70.122.90 with the deterrent of murder charges. No one imagines their own doctors being part of this holocaust that is spreading across both countries like wildfire while good doctors are being threatened to lose their license. Ask yourself though, do you trust that ER nurse or a new doctor if he makes a mistake with these new laws in place? Once your dead he's off the hook, DWD laws say doctors and hospitals don't have to report euthanasia or death by doctor. As a former chemical salesman and undertaker's son growing up in the business, we gave more respect to the dead than we're giving to the sick today, people of all ages are going to work everyday, trying to keep their heads above the water, yet haven't a clue what's going on in allopathic medicine today and unfortunately will be hapless victims and die well before their time, unless we join together to stop them. Read how a catholic hospital, who supposedly preaches against euthanasia, murdered my wife.
