Ian’s Story of Recovery from Fluoroquinolone Toxicity

Dr. Mark Ghalili and Ian

I suffered for eight years with random fluoroquinolone toxicity symptoms that progressively got worse. Burning all over my body from head to toe, in my mouth, down my throat, my face, and in my eyes. Dull aching and sharp pains in my joints and muscles. I had brain fog so bad it ended up causing me to have to stop working.

I saw at least a dozen doctors throughout the 8 years. Including several neurologists at the Cleveland Clinic Center in Florida. None of them had answers and they couldn’t point me in any other direction to get help.

My last primary care physician told me it was all in my head and to go see a psychologist. He said he thought I had Somatic Symptom Disorder. I became very depressed and felt helpless. I knew it wasn’t in my head and couldn’t find help anywhere.

If it wasn’t for my wife’s relentless research we would have never found Dr. Ghalili. If you suffer from Fluoroquinolones Toxicity talking to Dr. Ghalili will not be like any other doctor experience you’ve had regarding this. I started telling him symptoms and he could finish my sentences for me. I mentioned some muscle twitches on my calves and was going to show him, Dr. Ghalili stopped me from showing him and pulled up a video on his mobile with his calves doing the same thing. He was floxed and has been through everything we have and he cured himself. He understands like no other doctor can. He relates on every level, which that alone feels great when you’re talking to him. When we were going over my issues and how long I’ve had it, he was honest with me. He said he hadn’t treated anyone who had it for so long. Not only did I have it for so long but I had other medical issues which required me to take meds daily that are bad for floxed people to take. So I was a tough a case but he said to be hopeful.

I stayed in LA for month getting treatment every other day and then the stem cell procedure at the end. After my very first treatment with him my face and eyes burned less. I came in for the second treatment and Dr. Ghalili and Lori both noticed something looked different about me but couldn’t figure it out. The difference was I wasn’t squinting my eyes. My face always had an uncomfortable look from everything burning. After all my treatments my whole body burned less. Everything still burned but it was noticeably decreased but I still had major brain fog. He prescribed a whole bunch of supplements and said the effects of the stem cell procedure can take three to six months to really kick in. In my case he said it may take longer.

Over the course of the following eight months slowly but surely little things started improving. Around the fifth or sixth month mark 90% of the burning was gone but the brain fog was still there. Between the sixth and eighth month the miracle happened, my brain fog disappeared and the rest of the burning dissipated.

I was 100% feeling better. All of a sudden I could do anything I wanted to. Reading was no longer an issue, retaining what I read was no longer an issue, I could drive, and I felt great. I was able to study for my remote pilot license and take the test. I studied for two weeks and took a test with a two and half hour time limit in twenty five minutes, I passed with a 90%. None of that would have been possible without Dr. Ghalili.

For the last year I had a been stuck on my couch watching TV not being able to do anything else. I couldn’t drive, I couldn’t read, I literally couldn’t do anything. Although after eight years I had come to terms that this was going to be my life I still went through waves of major depression. I accepted it but it still wasn’t easy to deal with. I never thought I would ever feel like I do now.

I had no idea what to expect from this treatment. I thought maybe some things would get better some wouldn’t but assumed there would be lingering issues. THERE ARE NO ISSUES! I feel completely normal. To anyone who lives life feeling normal that may not sound very impressive but until you’ve been floxed you can never understand how amazing “normal” is. Dr. Ghalili was the miracle my life needed and I will forever be grateful to him.

    Ian,

    Hi, you mention Dr. Ghalili and talk about Los Angeles; but give no other information about who he is; where he is located or the type of practice he runs. You also don’t go into much detail about your treatment with him other than to mention stem cell therapy.

    Can you fill in the gaps for us? Tell us more about Dr. Ghalili? Explain the treatments he suggested? Was the month stay in LA necessary or could it have been accomplished in several trips back and forth? Did he see you every day? Was it covered by insurance at all?

    So, happy that after 8 long terrible years you are better. I personally am nearing recovery; but still battle brain fog as my primary symptom. So, I would really like to know what your experience was like and how Dr. Ghalili helped you.

    Thanks – A.Coleman

      I hate to be the critical voice, but there a some points which attract attention.

      All recovery stories usually mention the exact type of FQ they took, the dosage and how it developed in the very beginning, when FQAD was diagnosed etc. This story completely skipped that part.

      It also skipped the important part about what was tried before by your own. Instead the term “Dr. Ghalil” is mentioned 7 times and with a big photo, what makes this story rather look like an advert.

      Now about the therapy itself. The supplement part can be easily done p.o. without a doctor and most floxies practice that, so nothing special. I.V. can make sense if there are serious gut issues and to make sure nutrition reach the blood stream.

      About the LED therapy, the goal is to wide blood vessels so that serum nutritions can better reach the cells. An alternative would be to get an infra red sauna for home, which are quite cheap these days.

      About the stemcell therapy, this can’t be done at home, but we have to consider that stemcells are inside us anyway and replace apoptotic cells all the time. Every human has a pool of stemcells (which declines with age). So basically during a stem cell therapy they extract the stemcells from your pool and inject it back in.

      Most Floxies are desperated and grasp for every straw. This makes them a very easy target for one of the oldest professions in history, “miracle healers”. Floxies burn a fortune each year for alleged miracle therapies, myself luckily just burned about 2 grands.
      I recovered over 2 years with basically the same what most recovery stories here suggest: supplements, clean diet without sugars/flour, discipline, rest and time.

      Moreover I heard that Ghalil lets his clients sign a contract which forbids them to give negative feedback online. Means we will never hear of failed therapies.

      For sure my words are hard to swallow for one or another, but that’s what free speech is for, everything else is PR.

        Krabiwi,

        For sure my words will be hard to swallow as well…you’re an idiot.

        “Usually include the type of FQ”…I didn’t know there was a protocol for trying to help people. I was exceptionally ill for 8 years, in and out of the hospital. I was one of the desperate people you mentioned. My brother, dad, and grandmother had to help me pay for the treatment and stay in LA for a month in order for me to see Dr. Ghalili. This is no advert. I signed no paper saying I won’t say anything bad. I shared my story as it came to me. I didn’t even attempt to think about what to include. I haven’t been this happy in years and wanted people to know there was hope. Had you simply asked your questions instead of being an asshole I would have gladly answered. If you truly cared about people getting better and wanted to add to the conversation you wouldn’t have posted a ridiculous uncalled for post. You would have asked the questions that needed answering. I was given cipro and levofloxacin. Did you even read my post? I mentioned going to Cleveland Clinic and seeing neurologists. I saw at least 15 doctors and was hospitalized 6 times over the 8 years. I mentioned that my primary care thought I had somatic syndrome disorder since I saw him so many times. I don’t know what your issue is but you are a buffoon and have completely misjudged my post. I went from being sick for 8 years, out of work the last year, to getting Part 107 certified and starting my own drone training company. I have been given a new chance at life that I thought I would never get. Why wouldn’t I talk about the doctor who gave me this opportunity? People can do with the info whatever they want. LIKE ASK QUESTIONS…which a few people as you can see already have. I took the time to answer every question as best as I could. I can’t speak about any other doctor because no other doctor treated me. I suggest you delete your post, you sound like a clown.

        I can totally understand your concerns with PR and getting taken advantage of because of the word we live in. Here’s my story. I went to see Dr Ghalili in Los Angeles in March of this year. I did not have stem cell therapy but I did have various IV therapy with various peptide injections and a list of supplements as well as suggested diet. I received five visits over a five week period. I went from being unable to work and in constant pain to getting productive and back on the job mostly full time in that time frame. It wasn’t a cure because I am still improving and still have more to go but his plan of action was well worth the investment to get me back to being productive in a short time. I am not here to conduct a PR program for Dr Ghalili. I was very skeptical at first but the results were amazing. Maybe I could have figured a way to heal myself over time but his knowledge turned things around for me so quickly I was amazed. I went from having major concerns for spending that amount of money to feeling it was the best investment I made for myself. I have no way of determining if any single component of his therapy was more effective than any other. All I can say is the combination worked really well for me. Dr Ghalili never made me sign any contract agreeing to anything let alone forbidding negative comments. I have a lot going on in my life and Dr Ghalili gave me a means to get back to my life and out of severe pain promptly. Other than some surgeries I have had in the past he is the only Doctor that provided healing. Most other Doctors just deal with masking symptoms. Remaining disabled for months while figuring out how to recover may be an option for some but I was really grateful to find him and improve so promptly. Also, on a personal note, I felt he and his staff were patient, listened to all my questions, and were very enjoyable friendly people. We need more Doctors like him that are into providing healing support than just market prescription medications after a 15 minute visit. This is free speech by me, not PR.

          Hi Danielle, Thanks for sharing your experience and wonderful to hear about your recovery 🙂 Would be interested to learn more about your story prior to going to see Dr. Ghalili if you were interested in sharing. Also do you know if Dr. Ghalili is willing to collaborate with other functional medicine doctors in other areas of the US? I’m on the East coast and found a doctor nearby that does IVs and peptide injections, but I don’t think he is as experienced with FQ patients as Dr. Ghalili is. I hope you have a complete recovery very soon, Joshua

        • Danielle McDonough July 11, 2020 at 11:44 pm

          I would contact Dr Ghalili’s office to find out if he does collaborate. I do not know any information on the person who helped him with stem cell treatment. If you contact Dr Ghalili you can get information on how to contact me if you want to ask me about my experience with him.

  2. Ian June 19, 2020 at 11:20 am Reply

    Hi A.Coleman,

    I will give some quick answers now and dig up more specific info from my records. Here is a link to Dr. Ghalili’s site https://regenerativemedicinela.com/, there is some useful info on his practice there and a video of him on a doctors show. The video shows that Dr. Ghalili helped another doctor heal form being floxed. You can also google Dr. Ghalili and to see other videos he has out there. His treatment plan involves going every other day for IV drips and a couple other treatments I don’t recall the names of but will get the info and post it. As well as a daily red light therapy session for thirty minutes. There is a five or ten day plan which equals ten or twenty days because it’s every other day. So going back and forth wouldn’t work. He also placed me on a regiment of supplements, which I will include when I get all the info together.

    For the brain fog, which was the last thing to get better for me and one of the symptoms that really took a toll on me, I recommend trying DHEA. Most of my symptoms had cleared up but I still suffered from major brain fog as of two months ago. DHEA was added to my supplement regiment and I felt a little improvement with the first pill. I started off with 5mg, then 10mg, then 15mg, and now take 25mg daily. I increased 5mg a week until the brain fog just disappeared. This is what worked for me but obviously consult your doctor and make sure this is ok for you to take.

    I’ll get the missing info together and post as soon as I can. Wishing you happiness and comfort.

    Hey Fellow floxies,
    I’m so happy to hear this amazing story of Ian’s success. I to was treated by Dr. Gahlili and also have remarkable benefits from the process. I would like to thank Lisa for being a long time supporter of people who are affected by these drugs. If anyone would like to converse with other floxies I started a Facebook group called healing floxing. The group’s mission is to support one another with hopefull stories and information. Have hope, healing is possible.

    Yahoo, glad to hear your success! I also have had great improvement with my treatment with Dr Ghalili. I am not perfect yet but have been able to get back to working again. My treatment was very similar with no stem cell work. Were you able to distinguish the added benefits of the stem cell procedure or is all the treatment melded as a whole? Thanks for your story and shared information!

    Interesting story, I’m glad to hear about your recovery, congratulations. Do you think it was mainly the stem cell therapy that made the difference or do you think it was the supplements and/or the LED lights?

  6. Lukasz June 27, 2020 at 8:47 pm Reply

    Hi Ian. Your story deeply resonates with me. I’ve been very sick for the past 5 years and 8 months with identical symptoms and health issues that you had for so long. So much so that it felt like I was reading my own account. I too have been through a never-ending cycle of doctor, specialist and hospital admissions. Conventional, alternative, integrative, you name it. I’ve exhausted nearly every option available to me in my country of residence. All of these daily self-preservation efforts have really taken a toll on me and I’m in a quite frail state. In a last ditch effort to save my life, I too have turned to Dr. Ghalili and will be flying out to L.A. on Monday. I’ll be seeing him for the first of 5 treatments on Wednesday. It’s doubtful that I’ll see your kind of recovery, seeing as you had treatment for a month, and stem cell therapy on top of all that, but I’m hoping that he can at least bring me out of this daily hell on earth.

    Your recovery story is incredible and inspiring. I’m really happy for you. It seems you have been given a second chance at life. I’m hoping and praying for a similar gift. All the best to you and thanks for sharing this positive outcome with us.

    Hi Ian, Could you please give me an idea of how much this all cost you? Thanks

    Hi Danielle, Michael, and Lukasz,

    I think it’s a combination of everything. I had one significant improvement after my first treatment, my eyes burned much less. Throughout the month I gained a little more energy and wasn’t as short of breath. I don’t think whether you have the 5 or 10 treatment session you can expect to walk away feeling like a new person. You will definitely feel improvements but you won’t feel cured. Gradually each month after you will notice symptoms fading away but you’ll have to do your part. I stayed 100% vegan as Dr. Ghalili recommended and took my supplements religiously. I’m still taking them and still vegan even though I feel better. It’s hard to pinpoint which treatment did the job when there’s several things going on at the same time. The only thing I can tell you for sure is Dr. Ghalili’s combination of treatments work, at least they did for me.

    Treatments are tailored to the individual so don’t go into it feeling hopeless Lukasz. Just because you’re on the 5 day plan doesn’t mean you won’t get better and don’t forget 5 days = 10, treatments are every other day. Those 5 days are going to be serveral hours of aggressive treatments. I’m sure you’ll be prescribed supplements and told to go vegan as well. I can’t imagine you won’t feel some improvement when you’re done and for months after as long as you stick to whatever regiment Dr. Ghalili prescribes. Good luck to you! Stay positive and be hopeful after almost 6 years you might feel some relief.

    Wishing you all happiness and comfort

      Ian,

      Thanks for the reassurance. Hopefully 5 days of treatment (10 days total) will be enough in my case, but I realize that the only way to know if it’s enough is by having Dr. Ghalili assess the overall situation and determine what’s needed to address it. By now, he’s seen so many people like us, that his evaluation skills are probably top-notch. At least that’s what I gather from your time with him. It’s also good to know in advance that going vegan will be required, as well as a strict supplement protocol. How long do you have to stay on the supplements? Is it only for some weeks/months or a life-time protocol? Was the DHEA also prescribed by him?

      • Lukasz June 28, 2020 at 12:42 pm Reply

        Forgot to ask you one more thing…

        I realize this may be a difficult question to answer, but do you think the stem cell therapy played a major role in your recovery or do you think your recovery could have been similar had you NOT gone ahead with stem cell therapy? I’m trying to determine if I’m going to do stem cell therapy (if recommended by Dr. Ghalili) or instead invest the money into FMT (Fecal Microbiota Transplant) for my stomach issues. Which one would you invest in?

        • Ian June 28, 2020 at 1:03 pm

          Lukasz,

          That is difficult to answer however I can tell you Dr G told me it can take 3-6 months for stem cell therapy benefits to start kicking in and in my case possibly longer. It was around 4 months symptoms fading became more noticeable and it was at 8 months post treatment I felt human again. So there’s a very good chance it was the stem cells but hard to say I guarantee that because of the supplements and diet change.

          For me, I didn’t want to leave LA after traveling there without doing everything Dr G thought would help. It had been 8 years of feeling like crap and being depressed, there was no way I wasn’t going to try everything/anything he thought would help. That said, doesn’t mean he’ll recommend stem cells for you. After 5 days you’ll get evaluated and he’ll go over what he thinks should come next.

          I know that doesn’t give you a direct answer but hope it helps. Those were my thoughts and my experience with the process. I spoke with a couple other patients while I was there and they also had success going through the whole process if that helps your thinking at all. Dr G himself went through the whole process and he was in a wheelchair at one point. So it does seem like there’s a benefit to doing everything but also everyone’s body will react different to the process. Maybe you’ll be one of the lucky ones that only needs 5 days of treatment.

          Take care

          Ian,

          Thanks for the reply.

          I think you did absolutely did the right thing by going all in on the treatment. Like you said, if you’re going to travel all the way there, might as well. For me, the main issue is lack of funds so doing the full 10 day treatment is out of the question unless I skip out on the stem cell therapy. If I decide to skip on the stem cell therapy, then the 10 day treatment may be possible, but it would mean that I can forget about FMT which I feel might be beneficial for my stomach situation. Also, I wouldn’t want FMT to make me worse or overturn Dr. G’s treatment, so I’m very split on this decision. I would go with my gut feeling, but seeing as my gut is completely destroyed, I have to rely on a different method. Guess I’ll hear Dr Ghalili out and see what he has to say about it all.

          I really want to thank you for taking the time to write out your story and responses, as well as taking the time to post all the supplements Dr. G put you on. There’s lots of hope in your story for even the most damaged of us. The fact that you lasted through 8 years speaks volumes about your strength and resolve. Your wife too. She seems to have been an integral part of your recovery.

          Congrats on passing the remote pilot licence test with flying colours, on getting your health back and for not giving up on yourself. All the best to you, Ian.

        • Ian June 28, 2020 at 7:17 pm

          Lukasz,

          I’m curious, did your stomach issues start prior to being floxed or the same time? Asking because I was diagnosed cyclic vomiting syndrome The symptoms for that started at the same time for me. I’ve been taking amitriptyline for about 4 years now to treat it. Dr G thought I may not actually have it. That the vagus nerve in my stomach might be triggering vomiting episodes for the same reason my other nerves trigger burning sensations and pain all over my body. I couldn’t risk stopping the meds though while seeing Dr G. I had been in and out of the hospital with vomiting espisodes that lasted 24 hours or more. It had been under control for years with the meds and I couldn’t handle going through that again. Since I started feeling better and my mind is in a better place now I started weaning myself off a month ago and took my last pill 3 days ago. I don’t plan on taking anymore and waiting to see how things go. So far I’m feeling fine. Prior to being on the meds my stomach felt shaky every day starting from the minute I woke up. So I take it as a good sign I don’t feel anything yet. That’s why I’m asking when your stomach issues started. Could they possibly be caused by being floxed? Asking Dr G is definitely a good idea. Also maybe you can do 5 days and stem cells instead of 10 to help with the cost. Again that would be up to Dr G but maybe that could work for you. I understand about the cost. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my family. My mom, dad, brother and grandmother all chipped to help me. My wife found the right doctor and my family helped get the treatment. I wouldn’t be wear I am now without all their support. Hopefully Dr G can work something out for you.

          You don’t have to thank me. I truly want you to get better. No one should have to go through this. Feel free to ask as many questions as you need to. Now and through your whole process and thank you for the congratulations. Feeling better really has been a second chance at life for me. Passing that test enables me to have a career doing something I love.

          There were some supplements I purchased directly from Dr G and some I got from Wellevate. I purchased from Dr G for a couple refills but then found good brands available online and now purchase on my own. Wellevate is a little pricey and have since found everything available on Amazon, most the same brands as Wellevate a few different brands with great reviews. I follow Dr G’s dosages and quantities, not the instructions on the bottles.

          DHEA can be found on Amazon, I get the brand Pure. Most of the Pure brand supplements Dr G prescribed I found on Amazon. I started with 5mg and worked my way up. Currently I take 25mg a day. Some time in the near future I plan on having bloodwork to check my testosterone levels, I don’t want to over do it. Since I’m feeling great right now though and it hasn’t been so long I’m going to stick with it. I’m no doctor and can only explain my experience but in my opinion the DHEA was definitely what helped the brain fog. Could it have been timing and the stem cells did it, sure…but I literally felt a difference with the first pill I took. Just a couple hours later I knew something was different and Dr G did say Low T can cause brain fog. If you google “low testosterone brain fog” this is the very first result that loads:
          “Memory Problems
          Testosterone is responsible for more than just physical effects; in men, it affects a huge range of brain functions, including memory. In fact, one of the most noticeable effects of low testosterone in men is “brain fog,” or a general decline in memory and focus.”

          Let me know if you need anymore info. Wishing you the best of luck.

          Take care

    Hi Joshua,

    I don’t know if should post cost here. Not sure that’s fair to possible patients or Dr. Ghalili. Everything is tailored to the individual so cost will vary. I suggest calling and speaking with them. Prior to going I spoke with Lori for the most part. She is exceptionally friendly and very informative. She can go over everything with you. What I can tell you is they are upfront and fair. There’s no tricks once you get there with hidden charges that pop up. What I was told before going was how it worked out when I finished. If I’m not mistaken everyone starts with the 5 day treatment and then Dr. Ghalili will review with you what he thinks should be next. For some people 5 days is enough. Some may need 5 days + stem cell therapy. Some 10 days and some 10 days + stem cell therapy. You are aware of the charges and can make your decision accordingly. I know that doesn’t answer your question directly but I think their office is the right place to get that info. At least I can provide comfort in their honesty.

    Wishing you happiness and comfort

      Makes sense. Thanks Ian. Could you say a bit more about the Light and Compression Suit treatments? Was it LED light all over your body? Any details on why Dr. G thinks those therapies are helpful? Thanks, Joshua

      • Ian June 29, 2020 at 10:09 am Reply

        Hi Joshua,

        Dr. G did explain the benefits of the LED ligh treatment but unfortunately I don’t recall exactly what he said. I believe something having to do with nerve cell benefits. I had very uncomfortable burning all over my body and he thought that would help. That treatment invloves laying in a bed with red LED lights on under you. You have no clothes on and a thin blanket over you. You spend I think 20 minutes on your back then flip over for 20 minutes. The bed is kinda warm from the lights.

        The compression suit for my treatment was on me from my waist down. I layed in a chair that was like being at the dentist but laying back a little further. I slipped into the suit and they turn it on. It squeezed my body pretty hard going up and down in waves from my toes back up to my waist. I think I was in the bed for about 30 minutes. That treatment was for blood circulation.

        Hope that helps.

        Take care

    Lukasz,

    I actually haven’t asked when to stop taking the supplements. I’ve only been feeling well a couple months now and plan to stay on that track until it’s been a year with no symptoms. At that point I may reach out to see what I should stay on and what I can stop or change quantity of.

    Dr. Ghalili prescribed a topical testosterone as I had Low T which is another symptom of being floxed. I started using it but at some point I was talking to my dad about it and he told me he had a couple mini strokes caused by using a topical testosterone. I was unaware of that at the time. So I stopped, I should have but didn’t reach out to Dr Ghalili for an alternative but just kept up with everything else. As things got better but the brain fog stayed the same my wife recalled Dr Ghalili saying Low T can cause brain fog. She looked up an alternative and found DHEA. Turns out that’s what my dad was using as well. I started taking it and noticed a difference immediately. So Dr Ghalili was right it was the Low T causing the brain fog, I just swapped DHEA for the topical since complications existed in my family.

    Take care

    Ian,

    Thanks for letting me know. If you don’t mind me asking, did you purchase all your supplements from him or on your own terms? Also, did you take these supplements with his dosage instructions or just followed the label on each of these supplements?

    Really interesting info about Low T. Never knew this could be the cause of brain fog. Can the DHEA be purchased over the counter or is it prescription only? Were can one find it?

    Sorry to bombard you with all these questions. I feel like your situation closely resembles my own and I want to take similar steps to improve my health. Thanks again for your help.

      Hello Lukasz,

      i was wondering how your treatment with doctor Ghalili is going ?

      Hi Lukasz,

      Could you give an update of how you are doing after getting treatment from Dr. G? Thanks, Joshua

      Angie and Joshua,

      My treatment with Dr. Ghalili was cut short so I only had 2 days of treatment instead of the intended 5. Having said that, I did feel slight improvement from each of the 2 days. I’d say maybe 10% improvement each day, and a 20% improvement overall. Other patients I met there seemed to imply that the supplements he recommends make the biggest difference. Unfortunately, I was never able to purchase or use the supplements he recommended for me due to the online store that he uses not being able to ship the products to Canada. I’m not entirely sure why that is, but after my conversation with Health Canada earlier today, I get the impression that they’re blocking many of the American supplements, even if its for personal use. It’s clear they want to keep the marketplace as Canadian as possible, not to mention keep injured and disabled Canadians sick and on the brink of death. Many of the supplements aren’t even available for purchase here or fall into the category of controlled substances such as DHEA which means only doctors can prescribe it. Yet in the U.S., you can buy DHEA from nearly any health store or online retailer. This is just one supplement though. There are MANY more that are prohibited from being imported here even though evidence suggests that they would do a lot more good than harm. As a result, many of us here in Canada are condemned to a life of pain and suffering thanks in part to agencies like Health Canada who deny access to vital supplements. The outcome is what you’re seeing today, an injured and disabled society who are kept in a loop of chronic illness until they die.

      As for how I’m doing today, not good. I have burning neuropathy in my ear, brain, eyes and throat. I’ve had this issue in the past but it often comes back out of nowhere. When it does, it feels like I’m being burned alive. It’s possible Dr. Ghalili’s supplements could have helped with this, or even resolved it fully, but I will never know since I won’t be able to acquire them.

      The biggest positive change so far stems from 10 sessions of FMT which I did recently. All of my gastrointestinal issues have nearly resolved and for the first time in almost six years, I’m gaining some weight. Digestion seems to be improving, but it’ll likely take some time for the beneficial bacteria to multiply and diversify. Only a good diet can improve the outcome.

      So that’s that. If you have any questions regarding either treatment, please feel free to ask.

      Hope you’re both getting better with each day? How long has it been since you been floxed?

    Hi Ian,

    I’ve been looking more into Dr. Ghalili as I am considering seeing him, but it would require flying across the country and a very large amount of money to cover all the treatment costs. One thing that is emotionally compelling about Dr. Ghalili is that he himself was Floxed and was cured. In a new story about him it said that he found a doctor in San Diego who was experienced with FQs who was able to treat him. When I asked Lisa for the doctor’s name he said that he is a scientist and doesn’t see patients. Do you know anything about this? Seems strange that she wouldn’t be willing to share his name. Thanks, Joshua

    Hi Ian,
    Congratulations on getting back your life!!!
    Any chance if you could list all the supplements that Dr. Ghalili recommended? What kind of IV treatments did you receive? Or I would assume that could be his secret.

      Hi Erik,
      Thank you.
      I had posted an extensive list of what you’re asking but was asked to remove it. Sorry I can’t be more help in that regard. I wish you well.

    to the person who thought there were fake reviews
    there is a law called the Consumer Review Fairness Act or 2016 which makes it illegal for companies to add terms to their contracts that ban customers from posting negative review

    How are you feeling today? Do you still need to take prescribed supplements?
