As you read this you may wonder what this has to do with you or the drug Levaquin.Read on and you will see. Simply put "Antibotics are poisons that are meant to kill. Only licensed physicans can prescribe antibiotics; we mere mortals cannot. Antibiotics are used to kill bacteria. Certainly,many have benifited from thier use; but if bacteria was the only organisms that antibiotics killed, this site would be unnecessary .We take antibiotics when we are sick, when our "immune systems are down".Yet all mycotoxins are immunosuppressants. I contend that any poison that kills small organisms in small doses can also kill big organisms in big doses.You and I are big organisms.
An adult has approximately three to four pounds of benifical bacteria and yeast in the intestines. Each competes for nutrition from the host-you.The competion from the benifical bacteria keeps the ever present yeast into check and allows them to produce necessary nutrients,including B vitamins. When antibiotics upset the delicate balance of the interestinal terrain, yeast grow unchecked into large colonies and the intestines are inhibited by hostile mircrobes, a condition called "dysbiosis".
Every time, not just sometimes, antibiotics are swallwed, they kill benifical bacteria within the intestines.Yeast are opportunistic organisms. As the intestinal bacteria terrian terrain erodes, yeasts thrive, especially when thier dietary cravings are met."with grains",sugar is also a grain. Tendrils on the yeast, called hyphae literally poke holes through the lining of the intestines, a syndrome called leaky gut. It is known that (NSAIDS) Like Naprycin and Tylenol can enhance the gut leakage.
As early as 1950, two female researchers in Albany,NY,understood the adverse Physiological events caused by antibiotics.For years they worked on a soil-based organism that prevented dysbiosis caused by antibiotics. They called thier discovery "Nystatin" after New York State. This antifungal drug kills organisms, hence the term antibiotic is applied to it as well. But this revolutionary antibiotic stopped yeast overgrowth caused by all other antibiotics and was 100 percent safe to use . Amazingly, Nystatin caused no side effects. though it can cause a "die off " responce which is often confused to side effects.
In 1957, 340 antibiotics were tested for thier toxicity. As described in The Handbook of Toxicity, editor Dr.William S. Spector used mice and rats to determine antibiotic toxicity.He stated,"by using a larger number of animals of comparitive weight and sex for each level tested,attempts are now bieng made to determine more percisely the dose which will kill 50 percent".This is referred to as"LD50", or lethal dose for 50 percent of the mice.One must wonder how perscriptive doses of these very same antibiotics were established in humans before 1957! We beg the question that if a given dose of penicillan will kill 50 percent of the mice tested,isn't it logical to assume that a larger dose,perhaps repetitive doses extended over forty years, might prove fatal to human? It is the time span between taking antibiotics and death that intersest me.Do people really die of heart disease and diabeties, or do antibiotics cause these diseases? A death certificate will state the probable cause of death and never question whether the deceased had a history of taking antibiotics! the fact that antibiotics are fungal metabolites and have been implicated by scientic literature as contributing to death in man should be considered. Why does it seem to be so difficult to assume antibiotics are directly or indirectly linked with death when immunodeficiency and and death are so intimately linked?Max Planck , Nobel Prize winning Physicist , probably answered these questions best when he surmised as to why science is slow to change even in the presence of so much factual date, such as indicated here on this site.Planck said,"A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die off and a new generation grows up that is familiar with the ideas from the beginning."
That a new generation will grow up knowing the dangers inherant in taking antibiotics is a good thing. That Dr.s will continue randomly prescribing fungal toxins should teach us the importance ofknowing medical facts before blindly accepting any new prescription.Please study the antimircrobial benifits and the immune system stimulants that nature provides.If you have reached the point where no alternitive exist,i recomend that you ask your Dr. to prescribe "Nystatin" and use it with your antibiotic.Also restoring the intestinal terrain with a Probiotic.
The reason for such a lenthy statement ,is that I care that there are people suffering because of this toxin that is gladly given to us. I recieved Levaquin pre-op, before a surgery,I was prescribed Bactrim DS for two weeks prior to surgery for an ruptured occulted epidermal cyst, I could not take the drug for nausea I took two tablets.No more. At time of surgery they tried to administer Leviquin.I had had it in my IV for about three - to five minutes and started to have an allergic reaction to it.Itching redness to the arm ,hand and wrist. I am thinking they stopped it.The nurse told the Dr. she stopped it. Thay supposedly ordered a differant antibiotic. And prescribed Biaxin XL. I never took any of the antibiotics at home.Just what was given to me in surgery.I came home from out patient surgery same day.For three days my arm where the IV administered the Leviquin was sore in joints that I could hardly move and it has been two weeks and it is still the same, but more, my rib cage and neck was so sore that I felt like I had been in a wrestling match. The surgery was in the perineal area. No reason for anything above to be painful. I immediately started using my alternitive medicines,Probiotics and Olive Leaf Extract , an antifungal. With fairly good results. You see, I didn't need those antibiotics after all. I try to eat a healthy diet,no grains. I do indulge on occaision. My diet is much like the Adkins diet. The key to life is a good diet.Go figure!Be Blessed And Well.
