The power of vitamin C, Part 2


   Vitamin C beats swine flu

Dr. Thomas Levy, an expert on the effects of vitamin C on viruses and author of the book Curing the Incurable: Vitamin C, Infectious Disease and Toxins says: "I have come across a flu virus to that vitamin C would not have Virucidal effect until enough vitamin C reaches the virus, as in any acute infection. I do not know for Tamiflu, but vitamin C certainly has no negative side effects. "

In connection with the bird flu, an immunologist Dr. Robert Cathcart, who is in vitamin C treated thousands of cases of life-threatening infectious diseases, said: "The treatment of avian flu to large doses of ascorbate would be the same as any other flu, but the severity of disease suggests that might be required unusually high oral doses of ascorbic acid or even intravenous sodium ascorbate. I have not seen any flu that has not been cured or substantially alleviated by massive doses of vitamin C, but it is possible that the bird flu still need higher doses. "
It is interesting that at the time of the fear of avian and swine influenza in Croatia were almost completely absent seasonal flu. We thank you to the fact that the citizens instead of vaccines in large numbers turned to good old lemon and tea?

Australian and New Zealand media have recently published a story about the miraculous recovery of 56-year-old farmers "returned from the dead " large doses of vitamin C. He died of swine flu.
New Zealand farmer Alan Smith was admitted to hospital in Auckland first July 2009. with full respiratory arrest, was connected to a device for artificial respiration. Tests confirmed that he was suffering from swine flu H1N1. After spending 20 days on the machines in the induced coma medical team said that the family is no more hope and that it intends to exclude from the apparatus.

His family was not ready to come to terms with this and asked the doctor to try high-dose intravenous vitamin C. The doctors refused, explaining that it is an unrecognized treatment that would not have had any effect. Altercation broke out and the family was forced to hire a top lawyer who managed to carve for treatment of vitamin C against the wishes of doctors. Mr. Smith is rapidly recovered after only two days of such treatment. After a week removed from the apparatus. Today he is alive and well and working on his farm.

Just as tragically ignorant doctors routinely give vitamin C is not suffering from swine flu, or other forms of influenza. What is most shocking is that doctors initially refused to mention the desire to respect the family and has already written off the man to give inexpensive and safe treatment. That the family was not informed enough and persistent and was not able to hire an attorney today to Alan Smith was part of the statistics on deaths from the epidemic of swine flu. As the only Klenner was right when he said: "Some doctors would rather stood by and watched as their patient die rather than use ascorbic acid because of their limited minds it exists only as a vitamin."

   Other diseases

Numerous researchers have reported the successful treatment of a variety of other diseases with injections of large doses of vitamin C. One of the first Jungeblut's finding was that vitamin C inactivates diphtheria toxin. Later he came to the following conclusion: "Vitamin C can be considered truly Antioxidant and antivirus vitamin." Klenner reported the successful treatment of diphtheria, herpes zoster, chicken pox, measles, mumps and other diseases. Among other things 1948th described how her daughter cured with vitamin C for measles after it was deliberately sent to play with the children infected with measles. When the children given 1000 mg vitamin C orally every 2 hours all evidence of infection have disappeared for 48 hours.

Akira Murata Kyushu University also has established the effectiveness of vitamin C as a treatment for measles and mumps. In surveys conducted between the 1967th and 1976. Morishige and Murata found that high doses of vitamin C greatly reduce the incidence of viral hepatitis B after blood transfusion in a hospital in Fukuoka. The incidence of hepatitis in patients who did not receive vitamin C or treated with low doses was 7 percent, versus 0.2 percent (of which no cases of hepatitis B) among those who received 2 grams of vitamin C daily.

Many women claim that the large doses of oral vitamin C cured of human papilloma virus (HPV). Given that some types of HPV infection and associated with cervical cancer, and that substantial efforts and resources invested in developing a vaccine against HPV, it is surprising that almost no research on the effectiveness of vitamin C. However, from a survey conducted in 2003 . it is evident that the risk of persistent HPV infection was significantly lower among women with high intake of vitamin C.
Dr. med. William J. McCormick, who is among the first to advocate giving intravenous dose of one gram of ascorbate stated: "Vitamin C is a specific antagonist of chemical and bacterial toxins." McCormick also noted that people with cancer typically have very low levels of vitamin C in their tissues, estimating that they lack about 4500 mg of the vitamin. McCormick used the treatment with oral and parenteral vitamin C in many infectious diseases, with the results of which were faster and better than those with the then available antibiotics. Here are some examples that describe:

"(1) Active TB cases treated by the author as follows: 1000 mg of vitamin C intravenously every day or every other day for three weeks, in combination with 500 mg orally, in addition to heavy intake of citrus juice. Since the beginning of the temperature fell and remained at normal levels. Cough and sputum production are completely stopped, there is a weight gain of almost ten pounds (4.5 kg). (2) In the case of chronic pelvic infection, with frequent exacerbation during the past six years after a spontaneous abortion, was given 1000 mg of vitamin C intravenously twice daily, during 2 ½ days (only 5 injections). WBC count at the start of treatment was 19 200. The next measurement was taken on the third day showed a decrease in 6700. The patient is then placed on an oral dose of 500 mg daily for maintenance, in addition to heavy intake of citrus juice. The patient is now symptom-free for almost a year. (3)

The case of acute sepsis developed in older women after infection of the wound on his arm. During the initial examination, there was a marked swelling and redness of the hands and forearms, and the temperature was 103 ° F [39.5 ° C]. 1000 mg vitamin C was applied under the skin of a 1500 oral, with an abundant intake of orange juice. The next day, inflammatory swelling and fever were reduced to normal levels and the patient recovered quickly. (4) Several cases of scarlet fever were given vitamin C intravenously and orally, 2000 mg daily. In all the temperature dropped to normal within a few hours, for three or four days the patients were symptom-free. "

There is a possibility that vitamin C is useful even in the prevention and treatment of rabies. Indian scientists are looking for alternative means for inactivating rabies virus instead of the expensive and carcinogenic beta propiolakton, found that vitamin C in the optimal concentration of 0.5 mg / ml after 72 hours of completely inactivating the virus. Dr. Stanko Banic from the Institute of Microbiology, Medical Faculty in Ljubljana in the journal Nature described the experiments conducted on guinea pigs. Guinea pigs were inoculated emulsion rabies infected rabbit brain, and vitamin C treatment was started 6 hours after inoculation and lasted 7 days. Dose used was 100 mg per kg body weight twice daily. After the 14 days between the control animals was 70 percent dead, and 35.42 percent among the treated. The same author also found that vitamin C significantly increases the creation of interferon alpha in patients vaccination against rabies.

   Large doses are - normal dose?

The recommended daily allowance (RDA) for vitamin C has recently been corrected from 60 mg to 90 mg per day for men and 75 mg for women (in Croatia from 60 to 80 mg). This is the dose that should satisfy the needs of 97.5 per cent. Of course, there are questions as to the remaining 2.5 percent of the population and what does "meet the needs?"

It is the dose that is generally determined based on the prevention of scurvy, a disease of lack of vitamin C. Although these doses are sufficient for the average person does not get sick from scurvy, do not take into account that millions of people have increased needs because they take contraceptive pills, diabetic patients are , medications that increase the need for vitamin C and so on. These people may not suffer from scurvy, but may have subacute lack of vitamin C, which results in many other health problems, most often with chronic diseases and low immunity. Vaccines can also increase the need for vitamin C.

In summary, the recommended daily dose is not necessarily optimal dose for maintaining good health.
Pharmacology professors Steve Hickey and Hillary Roberts warned that the methods employed by the Institute of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health determined RDA flawed and that the recommendations are too low now millions of people suffering from problems such as cataracts, stroke, heart disease, etc. For example, claim that has been proven that the so-called saturation dose plasma far higher than 150 mg as previously believed and that plasma levels anyway should not be the gold standard for determining need. Moreover, warning that even the recently proposed recommended intake of 200 mg and still would not be sufficient to achieve optimal health.

It seems that the term "megadoze", which is commonly used for doses of vitamin C greater than one gram, you may actually leads to the wrong conclusion because it suggests that it is excessive and not necessary and normal doses.
The man is one of the few mammals that are unable to synthesize their own ascorbic acid to their needs. In addition to mammals, including humans it can cause some primates, guinea pig and several other species. For other species it is not a vitamin because it is produced in quantities of about 50-100 mg per kilogram of body weight per day or more. For example, goats, weight 50 kg synthesizes more than nine grams of vitamin C daily.

It is obvious that the common ancestor of hominids lost the ability to produce vitamin C because it did not need it, or your could meet the needs of the food. Analysis of the diet of primates in Panama showed that the plants that feed on extremely rich in vitamin C. It was found that one species of wild fig, Ficus yoponensis, the young leaves and immature fruit has one of the highest concentrations ever measured in a plant.
According to studies, gorillas in the wild food entries 20-30 mg vitamin C per kilogram of body weight, which is about 4.5 grams per day. It is recommended that gorillas in zoos provides 5 grams of vitamin C daily. Many monkeys and many times more entries, such as wild monkey grasper brings about 106 mg per kilogram of body weight. Transposed to a man of 70 kg, it would be 7.4 grams of vitamin C or a hundred times more than the recommended dose in human beings.

It should be noted that because of the short half-retention of vitamin C in blood plasma of five oral doses of 100 mg distributed through the day better to raise the average level in the blood than a dose of 1000 mg a day. Therefore, the optimum would be to enter it with every meal as do animals. The man is practically impossible to bring as much vitamin C a normal diet, among other things, because it is grown fruits and vegetables are generally poorer than wild-vitamins. Although it is certainly a need to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, it seems that we want to preserve good health, doomed to buy vitamin C in the form of supplements. So hurry up on their "megadoze" while not prohibitive.

It got out that vitamin C hinders the creation of mitochondria in the lean muscle tissue.
