Ian was an Olympic athlete prior to getting “floxed” by Levaquin. He has experienced severe fluoroquinolone toxicity symptoms, including multiple tendon tears that put an end to his cross-country ski racing career. Athletes should NEVER take fluoroquinolones. Ian went from being in the 2002 Olympics, to barely being able to walk around the block. If it can happen to him, it can happen to anyone. Please warn all your loved athletes so that they never take these dangerous, disabling antibiotics.

Ian is incredibly wise and insightful. His advice about how to face fluoroquinolone toxicity emotionally, mentally, socially, and psychologically is incredibly valuable. Please take the time to listen to him, and consider sharing this podcast with friends, family, and other loved ones. Ian’s measured and thoughtful voice of wisdom will help them to understand fluoroquinolone toxicity.

One thing that has recently helped Ian is KT tape. He posted this:

I had to let my body cure itself for 8 years, but then this KT and cloth tape job along with compromising my technique is what is enabling me to ski. I use about $25 worth of tape per week! I do this tape job on both legs every time I go out. I am very grateful to be able to ski some again!

Thank you all for listening!

I apologize for the poor sound quality. My voice echoes at the beginning of the podcast. Feel free to skip what I say – it’s not near as important as what Ian says. 🙂

Why Athletes Should Never Take Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics

chris-fqwall

No one should take fluorouqinolone antibiotics unless there is no other alternative and one is in a life-or-death situation. Athletes in particular should be aware of the harm that fluoroquinolones can do, and they should avoid them if at all possible. Athletes should know that their athletic abilities, and even their lives, can be taken from them by fluoroquinolone antibiotics.
