Tara shared her journey through Levaquin-induced fluoroquinolone toxicity in Episode 23 of The Floxie Hope Podcast. Please check it out!

Tara has noted several times that she was not as far along in her journey as she thought she was when she wrote her story. Please listen to the podcast for more information about Tara’s journey. It is not a repeat of her story above.
Also, here is a different podcast that she did with her doctor:
Tara gives a wealth of information about her journey, and how complete avoidance of fluoride, along with various homeopathic methods, supplements, and other things, have helped her through the last two years.
Also, here are some notes and resources from Tara to accompany the information she gives in the podcast:
“What I’m told by fluoride experts is that it matters how much fluoride was already accumulated in your system if you get fluoride poisoned or if you are already sensitive to it by genetics or be because of other chemicals or stressors. Also, whether or not a person becomes hypersensitive does not seem to correlate with how badly they are injured. Ex: People who are hurt much worse than me, still may not become hypersensitive. The spectrum of sensitivity may not have anything to do with the amount of injury from what I can tell through research or peoples’ stories.”
“Also, Im not sure if I was clear about the Fluoride Poisoning symptoms – a person does not usually “feel” anything after ingesting fluoride or coming in contact with fluoride – only a hypersensitive person like myself, which is rare -most people who are poisoned because of fluoride just develop symptoms/diseases/disorders due to the enzymes, tissues, and structures that are poisoned. Most people discover they are poisoned from fluoride by getting completely off of it and symptoms get better (damage has to be repaired over time, some damage is not repairable for all people – but there is always hope of better).”
“Coffee – I forgot to mention this most important topic! 🙂 I was not able to drink anything caffeinated – not even a sip – for 20 months – using the SCIO to heal neurotransmitters (Adenosine is neurotransmitter associated with caffeine receptor site – also used SCIO to heal neurotransmitters in general helped immensely, to heal nerves, healing mitochondria DNA, food allergies, and attempting to desensitize from fluoride).
I am more than happy to report I can now drink a small cup of Bulletproof coffee (free of mold), and put Brain Octane (distilled coconut oil – helps mitochondria for brain energy), butter (also good for brain), and when my fluoride is low enough, I can handle also putting in the Collagelatin powder in the coffee (good way to replace collagen and gelatin) for me. This is all mixed in a food processor together to combine – according to his book, there is a scientific reason why stirring doesn’t have same effects so needs to be blended. I really like the taste and that it’s mold free. The founder of Bulletproof used to have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, mold allergies, I think also Lyme, etc – so his story is good to read for inspiration – it brought him to a lot of research on mitochondria and health and building this very successful company.
(This is also the coffee I use for coffee enemas – it does matter that the coffee is pesticide and toxin free as possible – helped with small intestinal bacteria overgrowth SIBO)”
