Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins: Curing the Incurable

post #1 of 169
Thread Starter 
This book is an absolute revelation to me. A must for the non vaxer or anyone who is considering not vaxing. (Thank you MT for suggesting it! )

It talks about the HUGE amount of research that support using vit. C megadoses, especially via IV or intramuscular injections for knocking out viruses and neutralizing toxins. He gives much regard to Frederick Klenner for his pioneering research and practical application.

The main problem according to Levy, and the way C is regarded by most clinicians today, is that not enough C is assimilated by the body to show any effect. IV and injection, along with oral supplementation as well, is a much better route if facing a serious crisis. (See below). One example in his book is Klenner's own daughter facing chicken pox (I think). She was taking 24 grams a day. Not enough. Just a gram or two by IV and she improved dramatically. So basically if you see no result, you just need more.

Also everyday vit. C dosage to your personal optidose is crucial for the prevention of countless diseases and building the support structure for your immune system to deal with the many environmental toxins we face in the modern world. Vitamin C is rapidly depleted in the body's tissues by any virus and toxic assault on the body. And it's often the clinical appearance of scurvy that clearly shows this.

The fact that many animals synthesize their own vitamin C, increasing it in times of illness or toxic stress, is one of the main reasons that they are not susceptible to degenerative disease as we humans are. Levy hypothesizes that some humans could possibly do this now, or at some point ... as the genome exists in our DNA to produce the specific liver enzyme but seems to remain "untranslated".

The following viral diseases are CURABLE and PREVENTABLE with vitamin C IV and megadosing:

Hepatitis
Measles
Mumps
Viral Encephalitis
Chickenpox
Herpes
Pneumonia
Influenza
Rabies (preventable has been proven only)
AIDS and The Common Cold (preventable and reversible has been proven only)

The following infectious diseases are CURABLE and PREVENTABLE with vitamin C IV and megadosing:

Diptheria
Pertussis (reversible and preventable has been proven only)
Tetanus
Streptoccal and Staphylococcal Infections
Bacillary Dysentary
Pseudomonas Infections
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
Leprosy, Tuberculosis, Typhoid Fever, Malaria, Amebic Dysentary (reversible and preventable has been proven only, curable is hypothesized with right doses)

The following toxins can be neutralized:

Alcohol,
Barbituates
Carbon Monoxide
Endotoxin (ie. die off from yeast infections or the Herxheimer reaction)
Exotoxins (ie. metabolites from yeast/bad bacteria intestinal flora imbalance)
Pesticides
Herbicides
PCBs
Radiation
Tetanus toxin
Mercury
Lead
Arsenic
Aluminum
Fluoride, etc.

: Quite an amazing list, huh? Like I said, he has extensive research in this book and clearly states the studies that were constructed to debunk vit. C use pathetically small doses, not "Klenner sized" ones and not via IV or injection.

How to Determine Your Personal Optidose:

Take every hour or every two hours until bowel tolerance is reached. Normally around 6 - 12 grams/day for a healthy adult. When you get watery diarrhea, this means that the body has absorbed all it can. So take just under that amount every single day, in divided doses 3-4x day. If you miss it, you will not be giving your body the dosage it needs to stay healthy and leave your immune system vulnerable. Increase in times of stress or illness. If facing any of the challenges listed above, consider IVs.

Wow Jane! Thanks for the info. I have known that dd does much better at night when she gets enough vit c throughout the day. (Sodium ascorbate.)

I am going to try this every hour to see what my dosage level is.

Do they say sodium ascorbate is best?
post #3 of 169
Wow that is fantastic! Thank you!

Can you find many practictioners who would do a Vit. C. IV?

Yes as it is buffered, the body absorbs more. However you still need bioflavonoids, at 20% of that dosage (book doesn't go into this).

I'm also going to test my optidose both with SA and with natural vitamin C, I use acerola and amla powder for everyday supplementation b/c it already has biofl.

Good question, DS's new dr. does and he is a fellow of Amer Academy of Environmental Medicine:

Ok, so I remember reading somewhere around here that if vit C makes you tired or get sick (which it seems to so to me everytime I happen to get a bunch of it), then something else is wrong or you're missing another nutrient or something? Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Also, they are looking at the possibility that I might have lymphoma and I seem to remember someone saying that vit C makes cancer cells increase. Do I have that wrong? Is vit C with cancer ok?

And if so, I'm having a little trouble with all the stuff surrounding the vit C. I think that the fact that I want sodium ascorbate has stuck finally . But bioflavaniods??

JaneS, is there any way you could just tell me exactly what to go to the store and buy, brand names and everything? :
Puh-leeeze? :
post #6 of 169
Well I'm not Jane. I know my father uses vitamin C for his cancer patients so I don't think that it causes problems. A brand of Vitamin C I like it by Natural Factors, Its and Abscorbate and Ascorbic mix, but its 100% organic and its in a nice flaored chewable.
post #7 of 169
Does that cover the bioflaviniods too? Or do you do those?

I'm glad to hear about the cancer thing, I just wouldn't want to risk it if it has some odd growing effect on cancer. Maybe I'll see about the injections from my doc. Then again, I probably need to see about a new doc anyways.

I could have sworn I read something in one of these many threads around here about C making certain people sick and tired. *sigh* I wish the search feature was better.
post #8 of 169
I would also like to know a good brand of *powdered* bioflavanoids that I can mix in w/dds' drinks. :

Treereach,

Interesting you should ask that as my mom has a form of lymphoma and I've been starting to compile info to convince her.

Check into Linus Pauling's studies with cancer patients and IVA (IV Sodium Ascorbate).

There has been some recent study as well:
Orthomolecular oncology review: ascorbic acid and cancer 25 years later.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/q...=pubmed_docsum (see link for full text and other related research)

Conclusion
There are a wide variety of mechanisms by which
ascorbate prevents and inhibits malignant growth.We
have described the ones we believe are most important,
most scientifically logical, and for which there is
the most evidence. It is very likely that many of these
mechanisms interplay in ascorbate’s anticancer action.
The collective evidence supports the notion of
increasing ascorbate intake in patients suffering malignancies,
especially provided by intravenous route.
Ascorbate may produce benefits in both prevention
and treatment of cancer, by inhibiting malignant cell
proliferation, and inducing differentiation113 and
redifferentiation.114 In addition, ascorbate has been of
value in the palliation of pain170,171 and as an ergogenic
agent,8,172 which has substantially improved the quality
of life of terminal cancer patients.
The ideal anticancer agent is obviously one that
specifically interferes with tumor growth, prolongs
survival time, and improves quality of life. There is evidence
that ascorbate might fit this description. A protocol
for the proper administration of intravenous AA
has been published recently.173 Based on the evidence
reviewed herein, we suggest the use of intravenous AA
as adjuvant therapy in cancer treatment and the exploration
of new cancer therapies based on modulation
of the cellular redox state.
Sodium ascorbate is not in stores...have to order online. I get from Iherb
http://www.iherb.com/store/ProductDe...&pid=NOW-00762

I'm not a good person to ask re: mixed bioflavonoids right now. DS gets Amla, a natural whole foods vit. C and quercitin and I take either Amla or Acerola right now. That may change depending on what our optidoses are coming in at.

Chewable vitamin C that contains ascorbic acid is absolutely murder on your tooth enamel, not a good idea!

I mean, I know soooo much thanks to the amazing mamas here that I would never ever vax DS. But there was still a tiny bit of fear, ykwim? That's totally gone.

I am able to buy sodium ascorbate from my health food store, PCC Natural in the Seattle area. They used to require you to special order it, but now it's on the shelf.
When you reach bowel tolerance, is that in a 24 hour period or shorter? Like, if I took 2 grams every hour, and it took two days to get to bowel tolerance, would I then take double the amount that I took in a 24 hour period? Or if you don't reach bowel tolerance by bedtime, do you start over in the morning?

Yes, it is in a 24 hr period. But did you take more the second day or same amount?
post #13 of 169
Cool beans. Thanks so much for that info, it definitely relieves my concerns about taking it.

I tried to reach my optidose yesterday by taking two AMLA (paradise) caps per hour. I had stomach rumblings when I went to bed at 30 capsules, but never any results. This morning I started again (as I didn't want to wake every hour through the night to take the capsules) with SA. I'm currently at 21 grams with significant rumblings. Hoping to get there soon. I have been chelating and mobilizing mercury for 6 months and am hopefully half way through the course. I believe this explains my very increased optidose since I don't have any other disease process that I know of.

Do you mean that you think because you're chelating, you're needing more than you normally would? I know dd can handle 5+ grams w/no bowel movements but I've been slowly working up with her. She's chelating so I guess that would make sense huh?
post #16 of 169
Brands of sodium ascorbate: NOW brand, or Source Naturals. Usually you have to get it online as I've only found them in a very few HFS's.

Bioflavonoids--I bought NOW brand ones. They come in capsules...I suppose you could try opening them and mixing them with water

Chelating causes redistribution of mercury (and lead in my case). If you're doing the Cutler protocol then you're pulling mercury out of your organs and reintroducing it to your system as it exits your body. In a way you are repoisoning yourself during this process and that is why you get so many "symptoms" as your extracellular mercury levels go back up. Naturally this causes a lot of oxidative damage and stress on the system since mercury enters every cell. Thus the need for major repair.

Oh, it's 9pm and I'm getting ready to take another dose to put me up to 60 grams : and only wicked gas and rumblings thus far.

To reach bowel tolerance is very simple. As Jane said in the OP
Quote:

If facing any of the challenges listed above, consider IVs.
I do a loading bolus dose of five grams, and then 2.5 grams every couple of hours.

When I get to bowel tolerance depends on what sort of day its been. If I've been to a big city with lots of pollution, I won't get to bowel tolerance until i've had 40 grams, but if its a good day at home but with heaps of hard physical work, bowel tolerance might be 8 grams. A sedentary day, bowel tolerance might be as little as 5 grams.

You write down how much you take and how long it takes to get to bowel tolerance.

So if it only takes 10 hours to get to bowel tolerance, and you used a total of 10 grams to do that, then take that amount the next day in smaller doses over the waking period of that day, and see if you remain at bowel tolerance. If you don't, then up it a bit the next day.

Also, we are all different, and how fast you get there depends on the individual. It is error and trial, and that's how you will learn.

No-one can tell you how, or when it will be achieved. Just take comprehensive accurat notes, analyse it, and learn what your body requires.

Jane, Dr Levy is now very much into liposomal vitamin C, which he maintains is almost as effective as IV in emergency situation.

As time goes on, you will learn what your body needs under different circumstances, and will have a pretty good idea of how much to take, so getting to bowel tolerance will become more hit than miss.
