249: Floxed: How to Recover From Cipro

Masterjohn Q&A Files Episode 249


Question: Floxed: How to Recover From Cipro

And a lot of these things probably have nothing to do with hydration, but are a direct result, or rather not direct, but a secondary indirect result of the failure of mitochondrial energy metabolism. So, I have been doing some limited research on Cipro and brainstorming some educated guesswork around recovering mitochondrial energy metabolism health. And there are multiple hypotheses around Cipro toxicity mechanisms, but the bulk of the thought is in damaging mitochondrial DNA and basically just leading to defective mitochondria. And so it seems to me like the best strategies around regaining health after Cipro toxicity, and this is all educated guesswork, none of this is tested in randomized controlled trials, and I'm not a medical doctor, and this is not medical advice, but it seems like the most promising hypotheses would be around promoting mitophagy and mitochondrial biogenesis. And so probably whatever you can do to maximize the depth of your cycling in the fast and fed states is probably the most promising thing you can do for mitochondrial turnover.
