FINDING A PATH TO RECOVERING FROM CIPROFLOXACIN SIDE EFFECTS
When I first started surfing the web looking for a Ciprofloxacin “cure” to treat my Cipro side effects, I was directed time and time again to websites where victims report their suffering. I found myself scrolling through the stories and relating myself to the heartbreaking accounts of lifetime disabilities, ruined careers, devastated families, irreversible conditions, suicide and death. The more I read, the more desperately I needed to find the happy endings, but the happy endings were not there! As the cloud of depression and hopelessness washed over me, I began to imagine the long and painful road ahead. Then I simply wanted a miracle to make it all go away. I wanted to turn back time. I wanted to wake up from my living nightmare. If you are suffering the frightening side effects common to fluoroquinolone antibiotics like Ciprofloxacin, I’ll bet that you can relate to those feelings, and I’ll bet that in your darkest moments you have even considered looking for a witch doctor (or maybe an exorcist…???), considered traveling to Brazil to see John of God, or some other extreme scenario where you toss all of your core beliefs out the window in exchange for a “cure” for your Cipro side effects. When your life as you know it is hanging on by a thread, it is perfectly understandable to feel that level of desperation, but fortunately, we don’t need to let it continue.
THERE WERE 3 THINGS I TRIED THAT IMMEDIATELY GAVE ME HOPE
I would like to bring your attention to three specific treatment options that I think have a LOT of potential to improve or reverse your condition, and that may not be noted on other fluoroquinolone side effect websites (I have not seen ANY of these treatments on other websites, but I haven’t yet looked at all of the 2.2 million websites that come up when you Google Cipro side effects. Just to be clear, these treatments have been particularly helpful to me, but that does not mean they will work for you. Only you and your doctor can determine what is safe and effective for your particular condition. I am someone who is willing to try almost anything, and as a practitioner of energetic medicine, I am open to the corrective potential of alternative medical modalities. Furthermore, I am a believer in many things that cannot be easily or scientifically understood. With that said, YOU do not need to be an “alternative” thinker, or have any particular faith or have any faith at all for these treatments to work. You just need to be willing to seek them out and once you have determined they may be appropriate, you have to be willing to try them.
OXYGEN THERAPY FOR CIPRO SIDE EFFECTS
The first treatment is Ozone or Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy. I only mention Ozone Therapy because there have been reports of floxed individuals experiencing significant improvement after such treatments. I have not personally had Ozone Therapy, however I have had intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide (h2o2) and experienced significant improvement after treatment. Most notably, I experienced a substantial change in my mental condition after the very first treatment. Prior to h2o2, I suffered greatly from brain fog, blank spots in my thinking, articulation of my thoughts, slowed fine motor function, confusion, mental fatigue, focus, disturbing brain sensations, slow mental functioning, speech impairment, sensitivity to light, sensitivity to sound, sensitivity to visual stimulation (such as TV or even my kids running through the room), brain squeeze (inter-cranial pressure), a variety of other symptoms, and a general sense of being overwhelmed. These symptoms were considerably improved within 24 hours of the first treatment. The day after my first treatment, I woke up feeling very clear minded (for the first time in weeks), articulate and mentally energetic. Over the next few weeks of receiving h2o2, I found that all of the mental symptoms I described above were either eliminated entirely or reduced to a very manageable level, and my physical pain was substantially decreased.
With my suggestion that you investigate Ozone or Hydrogen Peroxide therapy as a possible treatment, I even more emphatically suggest that you find a qualified individual to administer any treatments you may decide to get. This is critical to your health. When administered correctly, these oxygenating treatments can be extremely effective, but they must be delivered properly. Please be a smart consumer before you let ANYONE put ANYTHING into your veins.
HOMEOPATHY FOR CIPRO SIDE EFFECTS
The second treatment is something very few people know about. It is a homeopathic product specifically designed to reverse the adverse effects of Ciprofloxacin! For those of you who have been suffering a long time and doing a lot of research on cures for this condition, you may be surprised that such a thing exists. I first heard of this product from my N.M.D., who heard of it from her mentor, who used it on her sister in-law, who was suffering from Ciprofloxacin Toxicity. Whether it was luck or a fluke, I will never know, but this product was prescribed for me, and it had a big impact on my condition. When I first began taking this medication, I immediately started experiencing what is referred to as a “healing crisis”. During this process I literally went backward in time from the day treatment began, almost to the beginning of my illness (for details on this experience, you can read My Cipro Journal). As it turns out, this product was created for the purpose of completely reversing the negative side effects of Cipro. I know this, because after a lengthy fact finding mission I was able to speak to the doctor who commissioned this Ciprofloxacin “cure”.
His name is Manfred Mueller at Homeopathic Associates. We had a couple of conversations during which the severity of my condition was explained, and he said to me (on 10-12-2010), “I think your condition is completely reversible”. Has anyone ever said that to you????? He also explained to me that reversing the adverse effects of medications with Homeopathy is his specialty and his passion, which is why he created this cure for Ciprofloxacin Toxicity called “Homeocipro” (available by prescription only). Unfortunately, the doctor told me that I took the homeopathic Ciprofloxacin cure for too long and at the wrong dose, but that it probably isn’t too late if I want to start over. I wish I had known about him before I took the remedy, but alas “would have, could have, should have” the point here is that the product exists and it is available to you! You have the opportunity to find a specialist to prescribe and administer this Ciprofloxacin cure, and perhaps other homeopathic medicines that may offer you a 100% recovery from your symptoms, even an inability to walk! In hindsight, I would have consulted with this man from day one had I known about him. Not only does he specialize in reversing the adverse effects of medication, but he created a Ciprofloxacin cure that is safe, affordable and effective!!!!
ENERGETIC QUANTUM MEDICINE FOR TREATING CIPRO SIDE EFFECTS
The third treatment has by far been the most effective for me, and for some of you, it will be the hardest to wrap your heads around. It isn’t voodoo, witchcraft or magic; it is Chinese Energetic Medicine as created by Dr. Kam Yuen. I have had numerous experiences with Yuen Method prior to getting floxed and have seen this method perform what you might think of as a “miracle” time and time again. This method works with a person on a quantum level and offers very quick and very transformative results. From www.yuenmethod.com: “The Yuen Method is an energetic technique that has taken years of ancient Chinese Shaolin temple healing and combined with western knowledge, The Yuen Method is a blending of anatomy, physiology, structural analysis, energetic technique, quantum physics and Qi and Shen Gong training. Dr. Kam Yuen D. C. developed this technique after a lifetime of study in the martial arts as well as being a structural engineer, doctor of chiropractic and studying nutritional therapy and homeopathy.” Even as a trained practitioner, I still can’t easily explain HOW it works, but I can tell you that of everything I have tried and of the thousands of dollars I have spent, this has been the most effective tool available to me. After one appointment full sensation returned to my lower legs and I regained the ability to wiggle my toes. After two appointments, my pain was reduced by more than 60% and since my third appointment, I have only used my wheelchair twice!!! Obviously, more appointments are on the horizon, and for now, this is my primary Ciprofloxacin cure. For updates on this progresses, check out My Cipro Journal.
I am fortunate to have access to great health care, and I am blessed to have been in a mindset to implement these remedies early on in my floxing. From what I understand, my allopathic prognosis for recovery is not good. Many of my symptoms fall under the “irreversible” category, and many of my other symptoms have a projected recovery time of 6-7 years. For me, this is unacceptable and from what I can tell at this point, I have already beat those odds.
If there was a database of all the people whose lives have been destroyed by this drug or another prescription medication, I’d reach out to them all and do my best to convince them that there is hope! So if you know someone who is struggling with this relentless condition or any other “incurable” disease, please encourage them to check out my website, or other websites where they can educate themselves about different approaches to medicine. Approaches where commonly known “incurable” conditions are cured everyday because the modalities are not dependent on a broken medical system where cures only exist if they can be patented.
In conclusion, if you have read through this article and felt inspired to seek out a new treatment regimen for your condition, I will be deeply satisfied. It is my goal to reach out to as many sufferers of FQ toxicity as possible and to restore their hope that a cure exists. We just need to start looking in the places where we don’t usually venture. If you find a cure or improve from your condition, please remember to revisit my website to share your story. There is nothing that will keep the motivation of suffers alive than the knowledge that “it” can get better!
UPDATE 2014 – Wow!!!! Things have sure changed since I wrote this article in 2010! Well today is January 16, 2014 and I was FINALLY updating the links on this page when I read the page for the first time in a REALLY long time. A lot of feelings came up for me. I can remember when this was all fresh and scary and how certain I was that I would die! It was those scary websites that were so prevalent back then (fortunately this website, which brings a positive message, and others like it seem to be taking the place of the dark and gloomy pages of the recent past)! When I think back on how much Dr. Yuen and Dr. Raithel helped me recover from Ciprofloxacin toxicity, I could just cry. They saved my life along with my husband and my friends and family.
And while H202 and energy medicine certainly got me through the thick of it, my work didn’t end there. I have learned so much these last few years, trying this remedy and that one, discovering how much CRAP is out there, and discovering some really amazing products too! If I was creating this page today, knowing NOW what I did NOT know back then, I think I would add some very important content, and I would probably edit the Homeocipro stuff. Homeocipro may very well work if you take it as directed by Manfred Mueller, but I will never know if it could have cured me because I took it the “wrong” way. If anyone invests the time and money into working with Dr. Mueller, I hope you will please let us know by posting a comment at the bottom of this page. I love homeopathy and I am an avid user so I see no reason why it wouldn’t work, but I have yet to hear a success story related to its use. The primary reason I mentioned it in the original article was because it is a remedy almost no one had heard of and I wanted everyone to know that it exists and that there is no reason not to hope for a cure! With all of that being said, I think its time for me to write some fresh content! I have so much to share! Blessings to you all, ~ Nikki
Update January 29, 2014
Ask and you shall receive… I have received a success story from someone using the HomeoCipro…
1:08am Aug 26
I read your entire website and journal about a year ago. My husband had a very serious reaction to a short course of ciprofloxacin two years ago given for bronchitis, and he has not been the same since. I will write much more about this to you later…as it is late and must get to bed. It was truly a nightmare….and the only hope i found anywhere was on your website….I want to tell you I do have some REAL hope to share with you also….and I want to tell you in detail later so you can, if you like, share with others. My husband did have a snapped tendon….I heard it…actually, it is a long story….and he was in agonizing pain and unable to move around for months…and we could not figure out what happened….I looked into everything and he saw orthopedic dr…had MRI, saw acupuncturist, chiropractors etcetera….no one could do anything…to help. I finally looked into his BP medications to see if there was some problem there that could have caused it….finally after much research, one of the CVS pharmacists finally said, well there could be some problem with the ciprofloxacin he took for a week, three months before this problem occurred….(he had been given ciprofloxacin the previous year as well, for the same reason) so that is when I started researching ciprofloxacin…and then the real medical sci-fi nightmare began….your site was the only place, after wading through the entire nightmare your detailed in your journal, that i found even a glimmer of hope….and that was HOMEOPATHY.
I have studied homeopathy years ago, with one of the top homeopaths in the world…..and I also have a great homeopath who is an American who lives in India….all that is part of the long story….short version, I contacted the naturopath I studied homeopathy with 30 years ago, and he still teaches in the US and has written a Reperatory and Materia Medica used by homeopaths all over the world. Anyway, i contacted him and he was aware of ciprofloxacin toxicity and had an entry for treating ciprofloxacin toxity homeopathically in his Reperatory. But when I contacted him, he also recommended to my husband homeopathic cipro….and prescribed ciproxin 30c three times a day….which my husband took religiously, and the bleeding out /discoloration in his feet, and the large round deep blood red skin area on his leg, which the dermatologist said would never go away, have disappeared almost entirely, and the pain in the leg which prevented my husband from even being able to walk or get in and out of car, or sleep, went away! He kept taking the cipro 30 for months, and as happens with homeopathy, at times a remedy loses its effectiveness, at one potency, and one needs to move to a higher potency….And that happened to my husband,and the pain after months of improvement, started to come back….he also got pains in the rotator cuffs and severe pains in hip ….and again for another 6 months was in trouble….because my homeopath did not have a higher potency of ciproxin….and I did not know where to get it….
By the Grace of God, several months ago, I had the idea to try a Homeopathic Pharmacy in California, called Hahnemann Lab, named after the founder and Father of Homeopathy, and they have potentized ciprofloxacin….homeopathic ciprofloxin in varous potencies… It has to be obtained with a doctors prescription, when sent across state lines….and we have a friend in our town who is a homeopath and and MD, and she was kind enough to order this medicine for us….it had to be delivered to a doctors office….so she did this for us….and within two days of my husband taking the higher potency of homeopathic cipro….ciproxin 100c, his debilitating agonizing mysterious pain in his hip that his dr thought initially might be bursitis…or some disc problem, but no disc problem was really evident…yet he did not improve…but within two days of taking this higher potency of ciproxin, his hip pain went away!
Now he does still have some minor sciatic pain, and he had definitely been severely floxed….and I believe it may be a lifelong problem with him, but I believe with the magic and blessing of Homeopathy, that his symptoms and pain can be managed, and he is getting his life back, and feels hope that he can walk again (took his first walk today in two years) and is beginnning to believe he can live again, and function again…..so I am sharing this with you so you and others can feel this hope and find this same hope and near miracle of some real recovery….so you and others too, I hope and pray can get your lives back as well. I am happy to share all of this with you in greater detail…as I am writing late at night…If you would like to know more about my husband’s case and recovery, or dramatic and unmistakable progress and improvement, I would be happy to share with you and others.
By the way, I naturally thought of some kind of lawsuit against Bayer….two years ago when we realized what happened…or against the well known pharmacy who failed to inform us that ciprofloxacin is a “black box medicine”… Which I only found out by accident when I called the pharmacy one day and a substitute person was on duty, and she said, “you don’t know it is a blackbox medicine???!!” I said, “No, what is a black box medicine?” But we never pursued any lawsuits, as frankly my husband was too ill, and I just was trying to find out what was wrong and how to help him get better….but since then, my husband ran into a doctor who knew all about ciprofloxacin, and she told him he should sue Bayer…I don’t imagine it would be very successful anyway….David vs Goliath….but in ways thought at times of spearheading a class action lawsuit….BUT MORE than that, I wanted to get the information out, perhaps write a book….as I want people to know about this insidious problem and that there IS something that can help.
I meant to write to you months ago….as I felt it was my responsibility to share with those of you who are suffering that there may indeed be, by the Grace of God, something that can or may be able to help….and I was distressed to read of the person tonight who did not make it, and those others whose lives have been destroyed by ciprofloxacin….Ours has been for two years now….but he is so much better, I want you and others to look into geting this homeopathic medicine prescribed for you, potentized ciprofloxacin, and see if it helps you as well. I believe many sufferers will see many of their severe symptoms reduced….dramatically improved and possibly healed.
This is the good news I want to share with you….that at the very least, many of the most severe and debilitating symptoms can be managed or dimished with homeopathic doses of ciprofloxacin.
I am of course, not an MD, or even a homeopathic Dr. I am a lay practitioner and lifelong student of homeopathy and am sharing our experience, with the Hope that this information will be useful to you and those who contact you for information on your website….what I am telling you is real, and my husband will attest to all of this.
Wishing you and others suffering from ciprofloxacin and other similar medicines Hope and Healing…from this medical nightmare. I will be happy to share in further detail on your website later on if you like. Wishing you all the best and many thanks for the work you are doing…to help others suffering from this medical nightmare.
Sincerely, Anita D., wife and caretaker of one who was severely floxed and negatively impacted by the debilitating side-effects of ciprofloxacin.”
