I've used sodium ascorbate by both Source Naturals and NOW Foods. I prefer Source Naturals but my little shop usually only has the NOW so that's what I've got at the moment. I've ordered the Source Naturals online from VNF Nutrition before.

Momtezuma - thanks so much for your informative posts - thanks for caring enough to spread the word.

My 4 y.o. is doing fairly well with his whooping cough - one major coughing session during the night, and he is getting between 1 gram and 2 grams of ascorbic acid/day. He is one month into the disease and I began the Vit. C 9 days ago.

However my 4 month old has began to do little coughs for the last 3 days, very infrequently. I am currently taking a nutritional supplement that has 1 gram of Vit. C and lots of Vit. A and many minerals. I was trying to dose baby with ascorbic acid in the liquid form, which as I try to give him more of, he is not tolerating. So, It looks like I'll just drink the liquid - or give it to the 4 y.o. and increase my dosage. Thankfully, I have time to get my dosage up.

And... talking to the moms of the kids that my boy was around (not many, thankfully) it sounds like most of the kids are coming down with it. And they are all well vaxed kids.

Don't want to hijack the thread... just want to keep it on the top, cuz all the information is sooo good.
(and I'm very jealous of those peaches.)

I've learned first hand that the ascorbic acid either directly into or through breastfeeding is no good for a tiny baby. My dd2 ended up with a horrible rash (mostly facial, but sore bum too) & a cranky disposition. I've switched to children's chewables & things are much improved. Rash is fading, baby is happier. I hate the chewables, but its worth it, yanno? We're giving my (soon to be) 6 yo ds 6g/day and my 2.5 yo 8g/day. I'm still trying to stay up around 10g/day for the baby.

for MT, what a mess my life would be w/o her valued information.

You're welcome AMum.

I just wish that doctors would read Clemetson's 3-volume text, all the medical literature out there; Levy's book; Irwin Stone's old book; and put it all into practice, then you wouldn't have even got to the point of panic.

It's not like Vitamin C is lunatic fringe. It's one thing that is hugely written up in the medical literature to way back.

Same with Vitamin A. Yet so few of them can even spell sodium ascorbate, let alone that its not "just" a vitamin.

It's an anti-toxin, anti-viral and in a strange way, and anti-biotic.

It's one of the few things that is thoroughly covered in mainstream medical literature over many decades, yet, most doctors know practically zilch about.

And don't get me started on ridiculous RDAs either.

They were formulated by the non-scientifical crystal ball guessers incorporated.

What's interesting to me is if this was a discovery from way back when, I wonder why vit c is not used more frequently to treat pertussis nowadays??

It's not an RX so no one makes any $$$ from it.....

That's my thought, anyway...
