FQ Toxicity Featured in The Healing Pain Summit




I had the honor of being interviewed by Dr. Joe Tatta, DPT, CNS, for the Healing Pain Summit. In our interview, we discussed how fluoroquinolones can cause chronic pain and disability. Even before we spoke, Dr. Tatta was aware of fluoroquinolone toxicity and the pain and disability caused by fluoroquinolone antibiotics. He has treated several patients who have experienced the pain and trauma of fluoroquinolone toxicity. It was an honor to speak with a doctor as knowledgable, compassionate, and understanding as Dr. Tatta.

Please join me and Dr. Tatta, as well as an incredible panel of other guests (including Dr. Terry Wahls, Dr. Robyn Benson, Jessica Drummond, MSPT, CCN, Dr. Beth Darnall, Dr. Tyna Moore, DC, ND, Mira Dessey, Niki Gratrix, Dr. Jay Davidson, DC, Damian Dube, Dr. Reef Karim, Dr. Keesha Ewers, David Butler, PT, EdD, Marcelle Pick, OB/GYN NP, Karen Litzy, PT, DPT, Dr. Kim D’Eramo, Dr. Ann Shippy, MD, Dr. Mitchell Yass, By Debora Wayne, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo, MS, DC, CCN, DACBN, and Connie Zack – what a lineup!), for the Healing Pain Summit.

The Healing Pain Summit starts on Monday September 12th and goes through September 17th, 2016. You can register for the Summit for FREE through THIS LINK. After September 17th you can still access the interviews, but there is a charge for them.

I hope that The Healing Pain Summit helps those of you who are dealing with fluoroquinolone-induced pain!

I also hope that my participation in this wonderful event helps people to recognize that fluoroquinolones can cause chronic, and often debilitating, pain. I hope that my speaking out on the Healing Pain Summit helps people to “connect the dots.” There are a lot of people out there with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, joint pain, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, peripheral neuropathy, POTS, anxiety, and more, who have taken Cipro/ciprofloxacin, Levaquin/levofloxacin, or Avelox/moxifloxacin in the past, and those fluoroquinolones may have contributed to their painful conditions.

Please help me to spread the word about the pain caused by fluoroquinolones by sharing this post, with your doctors, friends, and loved ones. Thank you!!

Each guest on the Healing Pain Summit is offering a free gift to those who sign up. You can see the list of the free gifts HERE. The free gifts are incredibly useful and valuable, and I also hope that they help each of you!

A bit more about the Healing Pain Summit:

Through this expert event, Dr. Joe is completely rewriting the dialogue around pain, injury, healing and the growing epidemic of addiction to pain medications.

At no cost to you, Dr. Joe has gathered the top leaders in science and medicine to pull back the curtain and bring their top-notch, cutting-edge information on injury, illness, chronic pain, and pain management to you.  These are life-changing protocols and ideas that are just coming to light.

When you discover exactly how your body works and how to heal yourself naturally, you get your body working FOR you and not AGAINST you.

Thank you so much for joining me for the Healing Pain Summit! Also, a huge THANK YOU to Dr. Joe Tatta for including me and for the help in getting the word out about fluoroquinolone toxicity.



Fluoroquinolone Mechanisms Chart

Bronwen made this AMAZING chart of fluoroquinolone damage mechanisms that lead to fluoroquinolone toxicity and disability:

I know that people are sometimes reluctant to click on links, but I wasn’t able to make the chart into a jpg that I could fit on this page, so, links to the pdf are what I can give you. Please check it out–thanks!

You can read about Bronwen’s journey through fluoroquinolone toxicity HERE. Bronwen has been incredibly generous in offering advice and guidance to those who comment on her story too. She is thoughtful, intelligent, insightful, and greatly appreciated!

Putting together the fluoroquinolone toxicity puzzle, and determining what is going on in our “floxed” bodies, is really difficult. Brownen’s chart is helpful, and it’s a wonderful thing to give to doctors and anyone else who is interested in learning about fluoroquinolone toxicity.

Bronwen used the “Dear Colleague” letter by Dr. Miriam J. de Jong as a resource for the chart, and I highly recommend that you check it out too. It can be read HERE.

I have compiled some additional resources for sorting out the fluoroquinolone toxicity puzzle that include:

Through working together, doing research, sharing information, and speaking out, maybe we can all get to the root of what, exactly, fluoroquinolone toxicity is. Once that is known, solutions will be easier to come by.
