Sarah’s Story of Recovery from Levaquin Toxicity

I’m here to share hope. Your body is a miracle.

I’m here to tell you , you will recover. Not just a little, but 100 percent.

Yes it was hell on earth, I couldn’t believe what happened to my body. I don’t want to go into too much detail because the more horror you read while you are trying to detox your body and replenish it the more it can hinder you.

Yes it took over a year however I got better every month.

Essentially want happened to me is the Levaquin fried my gut and then I couldn’t methylate it out of my body. I learned I don’t absorb B6. So it became poisoned by the substance.

(I had all the symptoms)

So here is how I got better in the darkest worst time of my life. (Trust god and your angels they will guide you.)

Food- cut out all the culprits. Gluten, soy, dairy, coffee, alcohol. Everything triggered inflammation.  Had the food sensitivity test done with a naturopath that helped set me on my food journey. I wasn’t able to absorb food for months however green juices helped sustain me.

Supplements: lots of them. NAC saved me and allowed me to detox the drug out. Magnesium was huge, I took the chelated. (I worked with a kinesiologist who muscle tested me , she saved my life). I highly recommend this protocol cause then you can weed out which and what supplements to take. I healed the intestinal lining with “intestinal repair powder” it’s on amazon. Klaire Labs probiotic have been the best , out of the several I tried. Vitamin D HUGE, I was deficient. OMEGAS 2000 a day! Fights inflammation it’s a must. B complex for nerve pain.

Tests I took that help guide me: spectra cell and mineral test. It’s about $300 but it helped with supplementing and also seeing how toxic I was. I could barely stand I was like 90 years old. I went to a GI , I had a lower infection in my small intestine, I took xifaxan.

Psychiatrist got me on Gabapentin to calm my mind down, I was stuck in a trauma loop and hadn’t slept for months due to pain. Gabapentin allowed me to finally sleep.

I’m still working with a medical medium, it’s woo woo but I’m almost to the finish line because of her.

Myofacsial release! Holy wow! So much pain relief . It releases toxins and trauma stored in your body. Do it when body is ready, I did this after I was more than 70 percent detoxed. I still have a few more sessions.

Healing work with different body workers.

This is personal and you’ll find what works for you.

My nervous system gave out mainly cause we have like 200 neurotransmitters in the gut. So what happens in there happens in the brain and throughout the body. Then you have inflammation and all your systems are hindered. Fix the gut and detox your body and replenish you are looking at a recovery. I had so many symptoms but it all came from the source of the illness.

Heal the gut.

Heal everything.

See if you can get a methylation test or if you a kinesiologist can figure it out for you.

Your body needs to be detoxing.

And you will repair!

Infrared helped me so much (stillll do it) once I was like 80 percent detoxed.

It made me sick originally cause I was too toxic.

I meditated , listened to high frequency music.

I lost half my business and most of my friends. People just couldn’t handle it, and my family to. People thought I was mentally ill, I was poisoned.

So much pain but I moved through it.

Keep in mind that healing the body at this level requires, physical, spiritual , mental and emotional help. Clear it all. Heal from all sides. This is a traumatic experience , release the trauma. The symptoms can linger for years mainly because one isn’t healing the trauma and retraining their brain. This event creates a neuropathway memory.

You are a miracle. Your body wants to be well.

Listen to your body. Take time with it. Epsom salt bath with mag flakes and mag oil really soothed me for months. Calm the body it’s low on gaba and magnesium.

Lemon balm tea was heaven.

There is a lot and we all get hit different. Do not label yourself, this is temporary! Don’t waste energy trying to convince those who don’t believe you. Get those that do and have them lend support.

This journey spiritually awakened me.

I feel amazing and I’m almost healed!

I’m drinking coffee 🙂 I have minimal pain! You will get there. Imagine a pain free body.






Heal gut.

Calm body.

Release trauma.

Retrain the brain.

Keep body moving.

Once I was able to be physical, yoga and hiking were fab! Plus massage.

I pray for you all.

You will heal!!!!!

Detox. Test. Food. Heal Gut. Calm the Body. Release trauma. Retrain the brain. Keep moving.

Yes it’s a lot, it’s overwhelming. Guess what? Once you make it to the otherside and your symptoms start leaving. YOU WILL BE UNTOUCHABLE. All the love and light.

You are brilliant.


(One last note of advice. My main thing was fear that I wouldn’t recover. That this pain was forever. Once I dropped the doubt and believed I could heal I started seeing results months in. Patience was key. You will heal. The pain will go as long as you believe and listen to your body. Allow any break downs and emotions to leave your body. Release them. You will heal faster if you allow them to rise to the surface.)

I won’t be responding to any questions, I’m not in a position to handle that energy at the moment for I am healing my own traumas. God Speed.

    Thank you for sharing. I just started seeing a naturopath and I am so so hopeful that I can achieve the same level of healing. I am almost 8 months out of Levofloxacin. The trauma part also resonates so much with me. I am rooting for you!!!

    Sarah. Congratulations on your recovery!! You go girl!! I am 3 years out and mostly recovered. I’m still dealing with intestinal issues though. Could you be more specific on your gut repair? What brand of intestinal powder did you use for healing and for how long?? You said you used Klaire Labs probiotics? Any other suggestion gut repair would be appreciated! So happy to hear of your journey to finally being “recovered”!!! You look young in your pic. I would imagine youth was on your side as well!!!

      Hi! Intestinal Repair Complex by Nutra Biogenesis. It’s a powder, game changer! Order on amazon. First thing in the morning on empty stomach with my probiotic like clockwork. I’m still healing my gut , I’m about to order it again it’s my 3rd time. Calendula tea is great for intestinal lining and Ginseng tea helps good bacteria. klaire labs is great!

        • Sarah June 9, 2020 at 2:35 am

    Hello Sarah, can you let us know which food sensitivity test you did? There are many companies that offer it, and I don’t know which one to pick. Thanks!

    • Sarah June 11, 2020 at 12:22 pm Reply

    Oh also everyone I’ve been microdosing psilocybin for 3 months now and it has rewired my trauma and greatly reduced my pain and given me the ability to move on. Better sleep and joy!

      Hi Sarah,

    hi sarah,

    i recently took 4/5 doses of levafloxicin for a kidney infection, and i think i’ve been floxed. on day 4 i began to feel tingling and it’s now 3 days out from there and i have joint pain, muscle pain, and aches in my ankles, bottom of my foot, my shoulder, my arm, my thumb, and my wrist. i can’t stand for more than 10 min without pain, and just sitting hurts also. i’m severely depressed and hopeless. i am a previously extremely heath 21 year old and i am honestly terrified. could you provide any advice or encouragement as far as who to see or how to start getting better? i have no clue what to do or who to go because i’m scared and dont trust anyone now. i’m currently taking magnesium, vitamin d3, vitamin c, co q 10, NAC, but idk if any of this is hurting or helping because i’m taking everything at once. thank u so much for ur post, it’s inspiring.

    • Sarah June 22, 2020 at 5:36 pm Reply

      Hi! I’m so sorry you are experiencing this. It’s gonna be good! You are young and you are taking all the right things. Main thing is to get the drug out of the body. See if you have a good kinesiologist and or naturopath in your area and start there. As long as you can methylate (detox) The body the NAC will help soooo much plus the magnesium you’re taking.

      Get the methylation test through the naturopath. Kinesiologist helped communicate with my body to see what it needed. That would be my advice!

    • Sarah June 22, 2020 at 5:39 pm Reply

      These are side effects and they’ll go away once the drug works it’s way out too. I have a medical medium you can leave you email here and I can send the info.

    Hey Sarah, did you change your diet and went low carb or something ?

    • Sarah July 10, 2020 at 12:34 am Reply

      Yes I didn’t absorb food for months it was horrible. I changed everything. Food helped heal me. Basically a paleo diet.

        Hey Sarah, if is cool with you, I would love to exchange myself with you. Living in germany and nobody here heard about flox and so on…, would be lovely when you could get in contact with me.

        Btw are you back to 100% ?

      Hi Janine! Yes I’m about 85 percent to 90
      Percent recovered. Gut is still healing along with trauma from the ordeal, but as a whole I’m great.

    Recovery, even if it’s never complete is expensive. Thanks to this group’s information, it seems a lot quicker today for most people!

    Hi Sarah, glad to hear things are looking so much better for you, I was floxed on June 18 th and have in the last month lost 2 stone or 28 pounds I’m malabsorbing and am malnourished, my bones are tingly and feel weak and are changing shape. I’m suffering badly, everyone I’ve turned to, Dr etc don’t believe me I am wasting away and am scared. I’m struggling to walk and genuinely believe I’m suffering with osteoporosis due to the chelating effects of the Ofloxacin and the malabsorbing, my back is in a mess and think I have developed fractures I’m struggling to get out of bed. I too have a catalogue of symptoms, I’m not sure how long I can go on. I’m taking chelated magnesium but don’t know what else I should take as I have had some reactions to things. Any help to can offer would be very gratefully accepted.

      Hi Michael I am sorry it took long to respond. You are not fractured, flip the mindset a bit. I know it feels like you are wasting away but you can change it. Main thing is to methylate the drug out of body and pour probiotics/heal gut lining and vitamins back into it. Like I said in my story, take control in your mind that you can heal this. The NAC helped get the drug out and seek a naturopath or kinesiologist to help guide you. Sending you prayers, also look into finding a legit medical medium.

    • Sarah September 3, 2020 at 10:29 pm Reply

      Btw I was in the same place as you, full breakdown couldn’t go on. Let god in, ask for guidance. You will get the support🙏🙏🙏🙏

    Hi Thanks for your kind words, my situation is made worse in that I’m certain I’m suffering the effects of mercury toxicity as well, as have had loose amalgam filling, and had Incredible ache and pains in my jaw and teeth 7 weeks ago, many of my symptoms, brain fog insomnia etc all increased massively afterwards and I get rushes of metallic saliva near the filling then migraines straight after. Certain fq has chelated my jaw minerals and allowed mercury vapour to react with my body and the fluoroquinolone. My neck has started to weaken now as well, I’m not sure what to do no Dr are helping even though I’m begging them, they just turn me away, i scared and have little hope. Many of the vitamins and supplements I’m reacting to as think my malabsorption is due to candida that started after the jaw pain and other some vitamins supps can have a chelating effect on mercury with filling still in place it’s dangerous but can’t manage to get it out as neck is bad, either way I’m in bother.
