The Floxie Hope Podcast Eposode 2 – Nick Luciano

Nick Luciano joined me for the second episode of The Floxie Hope Podcast.  In it, Nick describes his journey through fluoroquinolone toxicity induced by Cipro.  Nick went from being a law enforcement officer who worked out daily to being close to bed-bound.  He was unable to work for more than three months after taking Cipro.  He has since recovered most of his health.  His story of healing can be found here –

    Awesome podcast, you guys! Really enjoyed it. Do me next! Do me next! Ha, ha, just kidding. No really, I’m willing. During Christmas vacation, when my life stops being totally nuts.

    Nick, it was so awesome to hear your voice. How cool is that to have typed back and forth a few times and then actually get to hear you speak about your experiences? You are a Floxie celebrity! (I caught that F-bomb before you did, Nick. Had to laugh.)

    I was thinking how when I was a kid entertainment was whatever was on tv on the four channels we got, but today I don’t even need tv or radio. I spend more time communicating with people I have never actually met, who live all over the world. I read about their lives, watch videos some of them make and now listen to podcasts by some of them.

    The Internet is making it possible to allow many voices to be heard which otherwise would never have found an audience. Hollywood doesn’t decide anymore what we watch or hear. Our news isn’t limited to what reporters think is important.

    This is great news for those of us who want to see the truth told about FQ’s. The problem is that instead of broadcasting, we now have narrow casting, and although all these voices are out there, the audience for each is small. We just gotta keep trying to reach a larger and larger audience.

      I would love to have you on the podcast, Ruth! I was thinking that you could give information about the supplements that you take on the the podcast. Is that something that you’re interested in?

      It is wonderful that we live in a day and age where we can communicate with people around the world via the internet. It’s interesting and generally awesome – though it has its drawbacks too.

      If you have any ideas about how we can reach a larger audience, please let me know.

      Ruth thanks for the kind words and the private messages of help too. Getting poisoned hard and literally falling apart is so difficult for people to understand that it doesnt seem real to them. I just want to help others who feel like there dieing right now from fluoroquinolone toxicity. The one thing i forgot to add in my interview, now that im thinking about it is making a floxie friend. If you are newly floxed i would encourage you to linki k up with some people and communicate daily. I communicated multiple times daily with some people and we would talk about things and encourage one another. It made a huge difference, even now as things are getting better.

        Would love to communicate with you, Nick, if possible. I need the support of somebody who actually understands how I feel, why I feel as I do, and can alleviate these feelings with knowledge and experience for how to make progress…

    Are there any other recovery stories – in addition to Nick?
