If you have anthrax, Fluoroquinolone drugs are a great idea. Otherwise, avoiding Cipro might be the best move you can make for your health. On today’s podcast, you’ll learn about the side effects of these drugs and hear a heroic story about Fluoroquinolone toxicity. You might have heard of Cipro, as it is one of the better known Fluoroquinolone drugs. Sadly it is becoming a much more common treatment for digestive issues in conventional medicine.
And that makes this a very important topic for you and your loved ones. This class of antibiotics can be used by doctors against many types of illness (not just IBD) and digestive issues. Understanding how they work, the risks and yes the benefits will help keep you and your loved ones healthy for life.
Different Classes of Antibiotics Work Differently
Up until a few weeks ago, I didn’t understand the difference between how certain antibiotics are created or how they acted in the body. I’m still not an expert by any means, or a doctor who receives years of training on this stuff, but based on what I’ve learned there are certainly some classes of antibiotics that you might want to stay as far away from as possible.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against all antibiotic use. I’m for their use only as last resorts and life or death situations. I think most people believe in the credo first, do no harm. Unfortunately, in conventional medicine practice I’m not sure many understand the risks involved with antibiotic use.
And when it comes to a certain class of antibiotics, called Fluoroquinolones, this podcast may save your life or that of a loved one. Erin, from Fluoroquinolone Victims Advocacy Network was kind enough to come on the podcast and tell me all about her struggle with Fluoroquinolone drugs and how she helps people affected by them today.
