How We Can Halt The Cipro & Levaquin Catastrophe: The Worst Medication Disaster In U.S. History, by Jay S. Cohen MD is available on Amazon. Per Dr. Cohen, “The capacity of these drugs for such damage has been attested by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and others many times and is by now incontrovertible. Hundreds of patients, many of whom are quoted in this book, have confirmed their long-lasting injuries to me, while many hundreds more have been ignored or dismissed by their doctors. This must stop. Ignoring these problems has only made the problem worse.”

Rhonda Jean Bolton wrote Praying Through Pliés: Living With Lupus and Surviving An Antibiotic Called Levaquin about her journey through fluoroquinolone toxicity. It is also thoughtful, beautiful, and poignant:

Several self-help and spirituality books have helped people to get through fluoroquinolone toxicity. Nick was helped by Eckhart Tolle’s “Practicing The Power of Now” and Wayne Dyer’s “There is a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem.” I was helped immensely by Marianne Williamson’s “A Return to Love.” I have heard wonderful things about “How to be Sick” by Toni Bernhard.

    Hot Detox: A 21-Day Anti-Inflammatory Program to Heal your Gut and Cleanse your Body, by Julie Daniluk, R.H.N. c. 2016. I bought it mainly for the recipes, the 21-day cleanse (detox) may be too aggressive for most Floxies, but the recipes are keepers! Her book centers around warming foods (spices) and drinks that can dramatically increase the digestibility of a meal and absorpton of vital nutrients. By warming up the body’s core, she claims that it will boost immunity, alleviate IBS (which I have, as well as Celiac), and chronic pain, balance hormones and even help spur weight loss. Warming spices cleanse the liver, and turmeric has been shown to reduce pain as effectively as over-the-counter medications.

    Would it somehow be possible to borrow somebody’s copy of Dr Jay Cohen’s book “How We can halt the Cipro catastrophe”? I can only find it on Amazon for over $1,200. I was floxed 5 years ago and still trying to recover. I would love to read it but I just can’t afford that price.
