Treatment of the flu with massive doses of vitamin C.
I want to emphasize first that the main reason that massive
doses of vitamin C work against infectious diseases has little to do with the
vitamin C functions as ordinarily understood. They work in massive doses
because we are throwing away the vitamin C for the extra electrons carried.
These extra electrons neutralize the free radicals (molecules missing electrons)
that mediate all inflammations and cause the symptoms and deaths from these
infectious diseases. It is not really a matter of medicine; it is a matter
of chemistry. Doses of ascorbate which are massive enough to force a
reducing redox potential into tissues affected by the disease will always
neutralize the free radicals.
For prevention of many cases of flu. When you are still
well take ascorbic acid to bowel tolerance to determine
what your bowel tolerance is. People who have known difficulties with
their stomach or bowels will have to be careful. For instance, ascorbic
acid may cause a burning sensation in people who have ulcers or gastritis.
If you have symptoms when you take ascorbic acid, you already have something the
matter with your stomach or bowel. See a local orthomolecular physician in
Different people have different levels of organisms in them
that produce free radicals. Also, allergies or autoimmune diseases,
injuries, parasites, etc. produce free radicals and the free radicals produced
by theses conditions have to be neutralized with ascorbate before you get extra
ascorbate to work on jobs like preventing the flu or slowing down the aging
process, etc. This fact is why people vary so much in the amount of
ascorbic acid they will tolerate and, as a matter of fact, why bowel tolerance
to ascorbic acid may be more at one time during the day than another.
For maintenance doses, take an amount of ascorbic acid that is
comfortable for you about 4 to 6 times a day. Remember that the dose may
vary depending on how you feel. The better you feel, you take less.
The worse you feel, you take more.
Always, always, always drink water with ascorbic acid by mouth!!! Never
let yourself get seriously dehydrated which can happen if you are very nauseated
from the illness or medications.
Start with pure ascorbic acid crystals or powder. Then
after you learn to read the needs of your body, switch over to capsules or
tablets. Always take these with water. Over a long period of time
ascorbic acid powder or crystals could cause topical damage to the enamel of
your teeth. Capsules or tablets will not do this.
If you are exposed to the flu, increase your doses to very
close to bowel tolerance. If you feel a virus is threatening, take doses
even as frequently as every hour during the day and take an extra dose in the
middle of the night if you wake to urinate.
If you get the flu, take doses every hour, or maybe even more
frequently, until diarrhea is almost produced. Actually, the diarrhea is
not that bad so it might be better to tolerate a little diarrhea at first.
If the flu is causing diarrhea, this may be difficult but those with experience
in taking ascorbic acid can tell the difference between the flu diarrhea (which
is uncomfortable) and the
loosening of the stools by ascorbic acid (which is not usually uncomfortable.)
If you are unable to take enough ascorbic acid by mouth to
control the flu see an orthomolecular physician for intravenous sodium ascorbate.
Lists of physician who will probably
give intravenous sodium ascorbate. Otherwise, ask the owners of a mom
and pop health food store. They will probably know the names of physicians
who will give intravenous sodium ascorbate in your area.
If 60 grams of sodium ascorbate does not reverse the symptoms
given over 3 to 4 hours, then 120 grams in 1000 cc or 180 grams in 1500 cc may
be administered. When enough ascorbate is given rapidly enough, it will
eliminate the symptoms because the symptoms are mediated by free radicals.
If enough electrons are made available through massive doses of ascorbate it
will eliminate the symptoms including all the inflammation. It is matter
of chemistry, not medicine. Those who would counsel that this is not true
are either fools or
part of the genocidal suppression of knowledge about ascorbate.
Remember to continue to take ascorbic acid by mouth while the
IV sodium ascorbate is being administered. Bowel tolerance to ascorbic
acid by mouth is increased by simultaneous administration of sodium ascorbate by
vein. You might stop the ascorbic acid by mouth about 1/2 hour
before the IV stops because diarrhea my start when the IV stops. It is
safe to start the oral ascorbic acid an hour or so later.
When the IV stops, after an hour or so, resume the ascorbic acid by mouth until you
are well. Before you are well. especially if you did not take the
intravenous sodium ascorbate but were not able to take enough ascorbic acid by
mouth, you may become what I call "unsick." You know you have the
virus but your symptoms are much less, hardly noticeable, and complications are
very rare. You may be unsick a day or so longer than you would have been "sick-sick" untreated
with ascorbate if absolutely no complications occur, However, there is no contest as
far as which patients prefer. Massive doses of ascorbate, by neutralizing
free radicals, turns on cellular immunity but delays humeral immunity (the
formation of antibodies.) If the doses of ascorbate are not high
enough to completely eliminate free radicals and thereby turn on cellular
immunity in the seat of the diseased tissues, humeral immunity may not eliminate the disease
as rapidly as it would if you had been "sick-sick.".
Children take reduced doses IV. Usually a 10 year old
takes adult doses. Sometimes you have to give chewable ascorbate by mouth
in children. This does not work quite as well as ascorbic acid by mouth. Chewables are buffered of necessity
to protect the teeth and are are not quite as powerful but better
People who cannot obtain sodium ascorbate by vein (remember
insurance will not usually pay for this because it works and reduces the needs
for drugs.) and who cannot tolerate bowel tolerance doses of ascorbate will get
some lesser benefit from more moderate doses of ascorbic acid by mouth or from
buffered C by mouth. They do not work a well against acute symptoms but
may prevent serious complications. Remember that those people who die of
the flu mostly have acute induced scurvy. If you take moderate doses of
ascorbates, they should prevent acute induced scurvy.
With any physician who does not believe this, have them take your serum levels
of ascorbate when you are sick.
The children who are dying of the flu mostly have what I call "acute
induced scurvy." Read the story about babies dying of acute induced
Archie Kalokerinos' book Every Second Child. I, personally, treated
one 2 year old who would not take the vitamin C I prescribed because of a viral
disease and a temperature or 104 F.. In the middle of the night during a
snow storm, the mother called saying she thought her son was dying. I saw
him immediately in the middle of the night. The boy was almost comatose
with his back arched. I quickly gave him an intramuscular shot of one gram
of sodium ascorbate in 4 cc of water without preservative. In a minute or
so he was sitting up acting perfectly normal. The response was so dramatic
that there was no question that the mother would have the child take the
ascorbate subsequently. This was exactly the type of case described by Dr.
Kalokerinos in Australia. There was no question that in an hour or two, if
I had done the legally correct thing and sent him to the hospital, he would have
been dead of acute induced scurvy.
Don't panic but if you die of the flu or complications of the flu, do not
be upset that you could have been saved by massive doses
of ascorbate. But then you will not be upset by anything ever again
if you die of the flu. Long lived the profits of the drug industry.
When the patient arrives with symptoms the serum levels of vitamin C
should be measured. Then intravenous sodium
ascorbate should be started to neutralize the free
radicals and the resulting acute induced scurvy. Many lives would be
saved. It would make no difference whether it was the flu, SARS, or some
other infectious disease. They all kill by way of free radicals
and these free radicals can be neutralized by massive doses of ascorbate.
It is a matter or chemistry, not necessarily medical.
Anyone going to the hospital with flu-like symptoms should be immediately
started on massive doses of intravenous sodium ascorbate.
The massive doses, and only massive doses of ascorbate, will eliminate the
free radicals that cause the deaths and most of the symptoms with the flu.
A major factor in all these mysterious deaths is free radicals. Free
radicals mediate the inflammations of all infectious diseases.
Therefore, the neutralization of free radicals with adequate doses of
ascorbate will prevent these free radical deaths.
Whenever a person feels the onset of a disease such as this
ascorbic acid should be taken by mouth to bowel
tolerance. If the disease is too severe or if the nausea and
vomiting prevents bowel tolerance doses of ascorbic acid orally then
intravenous sodium ascorbate should be given in
massive amounts. I would suggest 60 grams of sodium ascorbate in 500cc
of water running continuously every 8 hours. If this rate does not
reverse all fever and all other symptoms in a few hours the rate should be
increased to every 4 hours. Depending upon symptoms and electrolyte
balance the rate may be increased even further. As symptoms are
eliminated the rate can then be decreased. Ascorbate administered
properly will save these lives of those with these mysterious infectious
diseases. The only rational reason not to do so is to protect the
profits of the drug industry. To hell with them.
They have successfully hidden the fact that even polio was
cured with intravenous sodium ascorbate back in 1948.
All of these cases should be immediately tested for blood levels of
vitamin C and then when they are found to be scorbutic given
massive doses of intravenous sodium ascorbate.
If this is a respiratory virus, it
could be a world disaster. All of these acute viral diseases kill by way of
free radicals. Massive
doses of ascorbate will neutralize those free radicals. What is critical
is that enough be used. It is a matter of chemistry. This disease
sounds somewhat like the hemorrhagic fevers, like Ebola. They are probably about
gram diseases where the patient's ascorbate is wiped out very quickly.
Then the resulting scurvy causes hemorrhage all over the body. The
organs most directly involved by the infection (in these cases, the
lungs) will start to bleed first.
Ok, Ok, it is in New Zealand but it could possibly spread. If the
WHO wants to keep
the ascorbate stonewalling secret, they better confine this one the way
they did SARS.
However, this disease could make
SARS look like a popgun.
With internet coverage and exchange of information, the vitamin C cure of
acute infectious diseases is becoming much more difficult to keep secret.
This may be a false alarm but if a full blown hemorrhagic fever that
spreads by the respiratory route gets going, they better learn to use massive
doses of intravenous sodium ascorbate fast or millions will die. It will
already be too late for most because they are unprepared because they are so
obsessed with finding cures that will be profitable to the drug industry.
Let us hope that among the millions that will die will be those genocidal
idiots and members of their families who stonewalled vitamin C. It is
only a matter of time before some disaster like a full blown respiratory
hemorrhagic fever breaks out. It will too late for many if it does.
This article emphasizes the mess
we are in just to protect the profits of the drug industry. Since all
these flues kill by way of free radicals,
and free radicals can be neutralized with
massive doses of intravenous sodium ascorbate, essentially these massive doses
of ascorbate will cure flues. But no, that has to be kept a secret
because it would make much of all this research talked about unnecessary.
