Floxie Hope Podcast Episodes 27 & 28 – Dawn

Dawn shares her journey through fluoroquinolone toxicity on episodes 27 and 28 of The Floxie Hope Podcast. Please listen to, and share, these podcasts:

http://www.floxiehopepodcast.com/episode-027-dawn/

http://www.floxiehopepodcast.com/episode-028-dawn-2/

Both podcasts can be downloaded through iTunes as well: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/floxie-hope-podcast/id945226010

Dawn suffered from severe depression, suicidal ideation, and dark thoughts that made her fear for her life. I hope that her story helps others who are going through this to know that they are not alone.

A couple of compounding issues that Dawn had were benzodiazepine withdrawal and breast implant illness. If anyone is suffering from those issues too, Dawn’s story will likely resonate with them too.

Please accept my apologies for both splitting Dawn’s story into two podcast episodes, and for the poor sound quality. My computer that I knew how to produce podcasts on died, and I’m having some issues with my new computer. Thank you for your patience, and for listening to Dawn’s episodes of the podcast despite the poor production quality.

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:

https://floxiehope.com/2016/03/12/true-health-made-simple-podcast-featuring-tara/

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)”

Expensive but worth getting my brain back.

Supplements suggested by the Fluoride Toxicity Research Collaborative (FTRC) for fluoride/fluoroquinolone toxicity (they lab tested to find good/cheap brands):
Calcium – solutions 4 brand or FTRC said Standard Process (can get from a chiropractor or naturopath) – fluoride binds to calcium and leaves the body in large quantities
Vitamin C with flavanoids- detoxes fluoride – they said Trader Joes brand with the lemon flavanoids. I do better with homeopath Vitamin C.
B-vitamins – fluoride disrupts synthesis of B-vitamins – (FTRC said Trader Joes brand)
Magnesium – fluoride chelates this mineral as well (FTRC said Kal brand – found at whole foods is good). I use Epsom Salt. If I wasn’t as sensitive to fluoride, I would choose Ancient Minerals magnesium lotion – loved it.
This article was sent to me by my chiropractor- it’s is by Dr. Jack Kruse – about being floxed and what to do about it – good information on staying away from EMFs, fluoride, etc. (I am very sensitive to EMFs since being floxed/fluoride poisoned)
Blue-blocking glasses I use to watch TV, look at my phone or computer – needed since being fluoride poisoned
Thank you for listening!

Floxie Hope Podcast Episode 21 – James

James is featured in Episode 21 of The Floxie Hope Podcast.

Check it out:

James also shared his story in writing, and you can read it here – https://floxiehope.com/james-story-hurt-by-metronidazole-then-cipro/. He goes into more detail in the podcast though, and I highly recommend that you listen in. Thank you for sharing your story, James!

James was 24 years old when he was floxed. He lost his grip strength after taking a single pill. After that, he experienced pain, burning pain in his legs, his eyes hurt, he had floaters in his vision, visual snow, loss of ability to sweat, weight loss, stiff and weak legs, nerve pain, brain fog, and anxiety.

He was acutely sick for 9 months. Even though he has recovered to the point where he is able to do his job again, he is not quite at 100% yet. He’s getting there though. He has a new perspective on health, healing, and happiness that is helping him immensely.

Thank you for listening to James’ insightful and uplifting story!

(Again, I apologize about the sound quality. There is still a lot of beneficial information in the podcast, despite the static and echoes.)

Renee’s written story of her journey through fluoroquinolone toxicity can be found here – https://floxiehope.com/renees-story-cipro-reaction/

Renee had taken fluoroquiolones in the past with no notable adverse reaction. This time though, after taking ONE PILL, the flox BOMB went off in her body and she experienced many devastating symptoms of fluoroquinolone toxicity.

Some keys to her recovery included The Wahls Protocol diet, support from loved ones, and a hopeful, positive attitude.

Thank you so much for sharing your journey, Renee! You are amazing, wise, and greatly appreciated!
