Around 1550 BC the Ebers Papyrus gives an account of a disease likely to be scurvy. The suggested treatment for this disease is to eat onions, which we now know contain small amounts of vitamin C.
400 BC Hippocrates of Cos, considered to be the ‘father’ of Western medicine, describes the symptoms associated with scurvy as “they have foetid breath, lax gums, and haemorrhage from the nose.”
1747 British naval surgeon James Lind selects 12 men from HMS Salisbury, all suffering from scurvy. He divides them into 6 pairs, giving each group different additions to their basic diet. Those fed citrus fruits experience a remarkable recovery.
1795 the British navy physician Gilbert Blane influences the Admiralty to issue regulations for the universal use of citrus juice as a daily ration on board British naval vessels. And from then on the curse of scurvy is forever banished from the British navy.
1928 the Hungarian biochemist Albert Szent-Györgyi isolates an organic reducing agent from plant juices and animal tissues and chooses the name ‘hexuronic acid’.
1932 the British chemist Walter Haworth determines the molecular structure of hexuronic acid and renames it as ascorbic acid. This substance is also known today as vitamin C.
The following year, Haworth leads a team of scientists that are able to make ascorbic acid synthetically.
1937 Albert Szent-Györgyi is awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his discovery of vitamin C, and Walter Haworth is awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work with carbohydrates and vitamin C.
1970 Linus Pauling’s book Vitamin C and the common cold is published. It becomes a bestseller and leads many people to believe in the value of vitamin C for cold prevention and treatment.
1990 Dr Matthias Rath discovers the connection between vitamin C and heart disease.
The two scientists Linus Pauling and Dr Rath became close friends. Dr Pauling stated that Dr Rath’s discoveries would later be seen among the most important of the 20th century.
Dr Rath and Dr Pauling contacted pharmaceutical companies to make sure that these discoveries were being implemented globally in order to save as many human lives as possible.
While acknowledging the research, all manufacturers contacted refused to support the implementation of the discoveries for fear of competition with their in-house patented drugs.
Doesn’t this scenario sound familiar?
Many of us nowadays reach for vitamin C if we experience symptoms such as lethargy, weakness, achy joints, swollen and bruised skin, spongy gums, loose teeth, the opening of old wounds, and for any cold or flu.
There are few vitamins that contain as many health benefits as vitamin C. Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, can be used for healthy skin, restoring and repairing tissue, supporting immune function, protecting your heart, and many things more in between.
A vitamin C deficiency can cause symptoms like easy bruising, bleeding gums, fatigue, weakened immunity, and, in severe cases, scurvy.
Because our body cannot store vitamin C or make it on its own, it’s absolutely vital to include plenty of vitamin C fruits and vegetables into your daily diet.
One could simply say: A few servings a day keeps the doctor away
The best source for supplying the body with vitamins is a whole food.
One of the highest amounts of vitamin C we find in Acerola cherries. Also, relatively high in Vitamin C are Black currant, Red Peppers, Kiwi, Strawberries, and Guava.
What is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that acts mainly as an antioxidant and is found primarily in fruits and vegetables.
With the exception of humans, gorillas, orangutans, guinea pigs, and a few others, most animals make their own vitamin C in their livers. And they make a lot of it.
That is why we have to get Vitamin C through our diet or and supplementation.
The Strange thing about Vitamin C
The story of vitamin C demonstrates that the devil is in the details.
If we reach out for vitamin C and buy a supplement, we are fine.
But doctors who administer, or even promote, this nutrient to treat for example C-19 risk intimidation, censorship, and even losing their license to practice.
Doesn’t that sound like a madhouse, just like so many other non-sensical decisions in the name of patient protection?
Roughly 50 years ago, Linus Pauling demonstrated that intravenous vitamin C (10 grams per day for 10 days) improved cancer survival.
Later, researchers at the Mayo Clinic tried to reproduce the results but didn’t use IV vitamin C. They instead gave 10 grams orally and found no benefit.
In the academic battle that followed, Mayo won and for the next several decades, the conventional thought was that vitamin C doesn’t work.
That began to change in about the year 2000, when Dr Ping Chen, a conventional oncologist, started looking into vitamin C and publishing papers on its pharmacokinetics.
Since then, there has been a combination of pushback against the idea that vitamin C works on the one hand and, on the other, growing research that points to vitamin C’s effects being as powerful as any drug.
Some medical experts suggest that mega doses might be harmful but the National Institutes of Health (NIH) claims vitamin C “is not believed to cause serious adverse effects at high intakes.
The most common complaints are diarrhoea, nausea, abdominal cramps, and other gastrointestinal disturbances due to the osmotic effect of unabsorbed vitamin C in the gastrointestinal tract.
But this is only if taken orally. This effect does not occur when administered i.v.
Vitamin C has been used by physicians to treat viral illnesses since the 1930s.
Dr. Claus Jungeblut, professor of bacteriology at Columbia University, showed that vitamin C can prevent and reverse polio. Jungeblut published in a peer-reviewed journal in 1935, with a few more papers in the following years.
There is a whole series of papers on using vitamin C as an antiviral in the 1940s.
Some came from Dr Frederick Robert Klenner, a board-certified chest physician in North Carolina.
Then, in the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s, we had the work of Robert Fulton Cathcart, an orthopaedic surgeon in California.
Cathcart used even higher doses of vitamin C, up to 200,000 milligrams a day, for acute, very serious viral illness.
People are being told that there is a safety issue, but there isn’t.
The safety of vitamin C is fabulous. Klenner said it’s the safest substance available to the physician.
The American Association of Poison Control Centres keeps an eye every year on who dies from what since at least 1985, and there are no deaths from vitamin C.
There’s so much research on vitamin C every year that you would have to have a lot of extra time to follow it.
Vitamin C is one of the most studied substances on the planet. Vitamin C is being used right now to treat COVID in hospitals in China, Turkey, Italy, and, of course, the United States.
Dr. Enqian Mao, chief of an emergency medicine department at a major hospital in Shanghai had spent over a decade successfully treating patients with acute pancreatitis, sepsis, as well as surgical and other medical conditions with high doses of vitamin C.
Mao’s team began treating COVID-19 patients with the same high-dose regimen (about 10,000 mg to 20,000 mg of intravenous vitamin C).
In 50 patients, who ranged from moderate to severe, all recovered.
One particularly severe case received 50,000 mg over a period of four hours and improved rapidly. No side effects were reported.
The findings were published in the Chinese Journal of Infectious Diseases, and as a result, the government of Shanghai officially recommended intravenous vitamin C for COVID-19 patients.
In March, doctors from all over the world joined Mao in a video conference to discuss his protocol. But the report was blocked by Facebook as fake news, deleted from YouTube again, and again, and again for violating their community standards.
Facebook took it down, saying that it was a violation of their standards because it could cause physical harm.”
On CNN, YouTube notorious CEO Susan Wojcicki declared that her company would ban any content containing medical advice that contradicts WHO’s coronavirus recommendations.
Isn’t that all we need to know about those people and companies?
What dosage does the UK’s NHS recommend?
The NHS recommends adults consume 40mg of Vitamin C a day, 150 times less than the 6g that the trials found could be effective. So, there won’t be a benefit from eating more apples and oranges alone.
It’s thought that the body’s immune response to Covid causes a decrease in antioxidants, which would explain the benefit of Vitamin C. The study also suggested that lower-dose tablets may benefit those suffering from milder cases.
Oral vs liposomal vs intravenous Vitamin C
Not everybody wants to take a lot of tablets or powder.
Oral dosing for prevention is sensible because you don’t need as much to prevent it.
If you feel like you’re coming down with an infection, such as the flu or cold, oral vitamin C is plenty adequate. Oral dosing of vitamin C, using a non-liposomal product, can double your blood level of vitamin C.
Using liposomal vitamin C can increase it threefold to fivefold.
So, liposomal vitamin C can make a big difference.
When treating cancer or Covid-19 intra-venous needs to be used because you simply can’t take the high dosages required orally.
Doses of more than 10 to 20 grams of ascorbic acid will cause loose stools when taken orally, but IV administration bypasses the limitation of the gut.
It also allows the vitamin C to get directly into the blood to the extracellular fluid, into the tumour microenvironment, to penetrate the tumour, and saturate the entirety of the tumour.
For our surgery and amalgam removal therapies, we use about 0.75 grams of iv VitC per kg bodyweight. For cancer treatment, the dosage starts at about 1.5 grams per kg bodyweight three times per week.
When you think of vitamin C, you’re probably thinking it’s an antioxidant, which is true, but in high doses only available through IV, it becomes a pro-oxidant, and that’s what kills the cancer cells.
The RDA for Vit C
The U.S. RDA for an adult is only 90 milligrams a day—in Britain, it’s a preposterous 49 mg.
But animals per human body weight equivalent manufacture between 2,000 and 10,000 milligrams of vitamin C a day.
A monkey in the wild that weighs about 20 to 25 pounds is known to consume about 600 milligrams of vitamin C in its diet.
So, if you extrapolate that for a human, that would be about 4,500 milligrams a day, and that happens to be the amount that gorillas consume. Geoffrey Bourne found that out back in 1949, when he studied gorillas and vitamin C consumption.
What does Vitamin C do?
Vitamin C is an antioxidant. It goes after free radicals.
When somebody is seriously ill their need for vitamin C skyrockets.
If you test people with pneumonia or influenza, you can measure and see that their vitamin C levels are low. The body is actually consuming it in this battle to recover.
Another thing that vitamin C does is it strengthens the bond among the cells of the body. The substance that cements all our cells together is made out of collagen.
It’s what keeps your joints and skin together.
It’s what keeps your blood vessels intact.
When you don’t have enough vitamin C, you don’t make collagen.
The connective tissue becomes weak, and you get scurvy. In the old days, wherever you touched a sailor with scurvy, they would instantly have a bruise because the little blood vessels would all break.
Vitamin C enables the production of collagen so that you don’t bleed into yourself.
All your blood is sent through tiny blood vessels in your lungs which go to millions of tiny air sacs called alveoli. This is how oxygen comes into the body. It’s absorbed into the blood vessels.
If you don’t have enough vitamin C, those blood vessels are going to rupture, so the person will fill with blood and die. And, in the recent plandemic, that’s one of the things to be aware of.
Vitamin C also enables white blood cells—the army of the body that fights invaders.
White blood cells require vitamin C to function. And in high enough doses, vitamin C is actually an antiviral.
This goes back to the ridiculously sounding high doses that I mentioned earlier with Dr. Klenner and Dr. Cathcart. Dr Klenner was reversing viral pneumonia in 52 hours.
In every nutrition textbook ever written, it says that vitamin C is essential for a properly functioning immune system.
Well, if you suffer from a flu or you know what, the one thing you want more than anything else is a properly functioning immune system.
Too little vitamin C will cause the immune system to be weak or cause the immune system to work wrong.
Vitamin C and cancer
In terms of cancer Vitamin C has more than just a cytotoxic effect in directly killing cancer cells.
Vitamin C is working to change the metabolism of cancer.
This means that it creates an energy crisis for the cancer cell, and it also disrupts how cancer makes energy.
High enough dosages of Vitamin C will bring about its properties of antiviral and antibacterial as well as it becomes a pro-oxidant. It is delivering oxidative stress to the tumour and creates it through hydroxyl free radicals, hydrogen peroxide, superoxide anions.
What can happen if you treat people with Vitamin C and achieve great results
On April 23, FBI agents raided the Allure Medical Clinic in Shelby Township, Michigan. The visit came soon after Allure announced that it was treating COVID-19 patients using intravenous vitamin C therapy, “with great results.”
In a press release, the clinic’s founder, osteopath Dr. Charles Mok, offered free, high-dose vitamin C treatments to anyone working closely with the public: hospital staff, police, first responders, and grocery store workers.
Anyone else who had been exposed to the virus or exhibiting symptoms was also welcome to try the treatment.
Mok said his aim was to support people’s immune systems and help those with the COVID-19 virus recover quicker.
“We want to provide this treatment to those who need it, regardless of their ability to pay,” he said.
Mok was charged with healthcare fraud and conspiracy to commit healthcare fraud.
A statement from the U.S. Attorney’s office claims that Mok took “advantage of fears surrounding COVID-19 to profit illegally” by offering high-dose intravenous vitamin C infusions to patients at risk of contracting COVID-19 and those who tested positive for the virus.
Aren’t the doctors who are using vitamin C for treating diseases all over the world doing what is best for the patient?
Aren’t they the ones who keep up the Hippocratic Oath?
Aren’t doctors morally and ethically bound to do everything they can for the good of the patient?
I leave it to you to come up with your own conclusions.
That’s it for today. Thanks for tuning in and bye for now.
