Believe it or not, there are more Property Brothers than Drew and Jonathan Scott. The charismatic HGTV stars have an older brother JD who has appeared on their show a number of times. Back in July, JD opened up about his “mysterious illness” that left him bedridden and wondering if he would even survive.
JD posted an update on Instagram to let his followers know that his health was improving and that they had learned more about his condition.
“It occurred to me tonight that I hadn’t actually given you an update since first announcing my illness. On the positive side, I’m still feeling better than I did last year or even the beginning of this one.”
“I was exposed to and may have been suffering from fluoroquinolone toxicity (also called ‘Getting Floxed’). This would account for many of my symptoms and the timing is dead on. P.S. – Avoid ever taking any antibiotics that have ‘flox’ in the name if you can.”
Scott continued, explaining that he also suffered from mercury poisoning at alarming levels.
“My levels are so high the health department got involved,” he wrote. “We don’t know at this point how it happened but I am being treated for it and that would explain the some of the issues I’ve been having as well.”
“So at the end of the day, we have a lot more clarity on what was going on and how to tackle it. I’ve stuck to the diet which limits (almost to zero) gluten, sugar, soy and dairy. I have so many other things I have to take daily for this treatment but I am so grateful to finally have some real answers and direction.”
With some direction on his condition, Scott and his fiancée Annalee Belle are taking his recovery one day at a time.
