I agree with Beautymom5. I would begin eating as clean as possible. This means as close to the earth as possible, eliminating all of the chemical junk that's put in our food. This would include artificial ingredients, food colors, preservatives, processed food, non-organic meats, etc. It sounds hard, but simple planning and label reading and you'll have it all down in no time. I don't like to spend a ton on groceries and I have managed this eating style for me and my whole family without breaking the bank. My husband just had a stent put in his heart at 38 years old so it's really helping him too. I eat salmon (wild caught, because farm raised fish has antibiotics in it), bison, deer, shrimp, crab legs and anything that hasn't been touched by man and chemicals before it was caught. I drink filtered water (not tap to avoid fluoride) with limes or lemons squeezed in it. This is an excellent detox drink. Start to supplement with Magnesium via a pure route, not a hard pill form since those contain titanium dioxide and other chemical binders. Eat lots of spinach, cruciferous vegetables and healthy fruits. Cut out white flour, sugar, rice, breads, pastas and substitute with things made with whole wheat flour, whole grains, unrefined sugars. Cut out caffeine, alcohol, and body products with chemicals. This may all sound extreme initially, but as you start to find your own triggers this will all make more sense. I was able to add back my morning coffee at month 4 with no problem. Initially it made my whole body twitch and burn. Your body and liver are working overtime to rid your body of this medicine and filter the continued contaminents that we keep placing inside it. Anything you can do to take the load off your liver is a huge plus. Take epsom salt baths when you can after your surgery restrictions are lifted. This will give you a natural form of magnesium to help bind to the levaquin. Don't go crazy on supplements of every kind you hear about. It's always best to get your vitamins and minerals through your food the way it should be given. I do agree with getting your D and B vitamins because they help the nervous system work properly and Levaquin depletes these. Make smoothies with lots of berries, bananas, spinach, organic yogurt, and things you like. This will give a very good way for the nutrients to get into your system. Use extra virgin olive oil and unrefined organic coconut oils in your cooking. I even use the coconut oil as a lotion after baths. Watch your deoderants, toothpaste, body products, perfumes for chemicals. I have made my own cleaning products, and have switched a ton of unhealthy products to jumpstart the healing. Don't let all this be sensory overload. That will only add to the anxiety and depression that this situation has already brought to our bodies. Meditate, stretch, keep moving as best as you can to aid in circulation to your healing nerves. Be careful with strenuous exercise or movement while your tendons and joints are temporarily compromised.
