As humans, we are not so separate from the planet we inhabit. Our bodies, like their larger celestial vessels, pass through different seasons and experience the impact of changes in climate, circumstance, and dis-ease. When sickness arises in the body, we’ve long been instructed to seek allopathic medicinal cures, which often come in the form of antibiotic drugs. Whilst these drugs can serve a function in attacking bacterial infection, they somewhat paradoxically can leave the body sicker as a whole. Just as we are coming to accept that the survival of our climate requires immediate attention in reducing the level of toxins in our atmosphere, on a microcosmic level, so too do our bodies require healing from an overload of polluting and harmful substances,
The risks and side effects associated with certain antibiotic use are the subject of ongoing research. In particular, fluoroquinolone class antibiotics, of which the drug ciprofloxacin, or cipro, is one, have been identified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as posing a risk of serious and potentially permanent side effects involving tendons, muscles, joints, and the central nervous system. Regenerative Medicine LA founder and board certified internal medicine physician, Dr. Mark Ghalili DO, experienced first hand these devastating side effects, after an extreme adverse reaction to cipro left him confined to a wheelchair, Dr. Ghalili established his LA clinic to provide the same alternative and regenerative medicine treatments that helped cure his own cipro toxicity.
Common symptoms of cipro toxicity in the body are varied but can include pain, anxiety, fatigue, weight loss, fibromyalgia, peripheral neuropathy, depression, and disability. Regenerative medicine aims to target these symptoms and restore balance to the body and its systems. Using an integrated approach to bringing health back to the body, regenerative medicine treatments may include a combination of stem cell therapy, IV therapy, vitamin and dietary supplementation, and other holistic approaches.
Stem cell therapy works by harvesting adult mesenchymal stem cells from a patient’s adipose tissue, or fat, and re-introducing them into the body via IV infusion or joint injection. Stem cell therapy mobilizes the inherent characteristic of these cells towards self-replication and differentiation, stimulating tissue growth and providing pain relief.
Intravenous, or IV, therapy, is another treatment used to address cipro toxicity. It involves the delivery of medication and nutrition directly into the bloodstream via an IV drip, replenishing mitochondria, the powerhouses behind many of our cells biological processes, with key essential vitamins and nutrients, IV therapy is usually prescribed in conjunction with custom supplementation for a lasting effect.
If you’re concerned about the impact that recent or frequent cipro or other fluroquinolone use may have had on your body, it may be time to reach out beyond the traditional. Contact a regenerative medicine specialist to embrace the galaxy of healing potential inherent inside yourself.
