Lisa’s work helps so many
I never knew anything about FQ toxicity until my girlfriend told me about it and helped me understand what it is and how life-ruining it is. Lisa’s blog and podcast are great renounces to help people like me understand and support their loved ones who are suffering from being poisoned by the side effects of Fluoroquinolones antibiotics. I’d encourage every one to avoid this subset of antibiotics unless they are needed to save your life. There are other much less dangerous options. And if you have been poisoned. There’s hope and there’s usually recovery over time. Thank you Lisa for sharing the hard times, the science, the helps, and most importantly that there’s hope.
Hope for Floxies
Until I found Floxie Hope, I had very little. Lisa has helped not only me, but many, many more people trying to find some answers and solutions to the many symptoms of Fluoroquinolone Toxicity. I look forward to many more Floxie Hope podcasts.
Floxie Hope is a Life Saver
For those having symptoms due to Fluoroquinolones, whether it’s full blown toxicity, ruptured tendons, neuropathy, mental health distress or anything else, Floxie Hope podcast and Floxie Hope website can be a great tool in recovery. These podcasts contain a lot of very hopeful information regarding the effects and recovery from Cipro, Levaquin and the like. Lisa is tirelessly getting the word out about the dangers of these drugs but in a very artful and hopeful way. The podcasts contain enough information to get you started on your road back, but more than that they will help align your attitude with healing. Anyone interested in Pharmaceutical treatments of any disease would learn a lot from this series. Thanks Lisa!
