Crimea-Congo hemorrhagic fever
- Since this disease, Crimea-Congo hemorrhagic fever, is a relatively
mild hemorrhagic fever because it kills only 5%, massive doses of ascorbate
would certainly prevent almost all these deaths. The massive doses of
ascorbate neutralize the free radical toxicity that cause the damage in
these diseases and suppress the immune system. If one understands the
mechanism behind the increased tolerance to ascorbic acid described in my
Viatmin C, Titrating to Bowel Tolerance,
Anascorbemia, and Acute Induced Scurvy, one will see that these toxic hemorrhagic fevers will cause a state of acute
induced scurvy. Without vitamin C the collagen fibers break down and are
not replaced and massive hemorrhage results. This scurvy can be easily
proven by testing the serum levels of vitamin C. When these levels are
seen to be zero or almost zero, the treatment will be obvious.
The treatment would be similar to that described for the
- The major mechanism behind the morbidity and mortality of all
infectious diseases is free radicals. These free radicals can be
neutralized by massive doses of ascorbate. This is why massive doses of
ascorbate given properly will ameliorate or cure all infectious diseases.
Serum levels of vitamin C should be measured in all patients with infectious
diseases. When the zero or near zero levels of vitamin C are detected,
treatment should not be limited to nutritional levels of vitamin C but massive
doses should be used to neutralize all the free readicals.
