A health and wellness facility in Michigan that was treating potential Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) patients with intravenous vitamin C has been raided and shut down by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for allegedly committing "fraud."
According to Dr. Charles Mok of the Allure Medical Spa, the FBI and HHS took issue with the facility's decision to offer "high-dose, intravenous vitamin C to all essential workers who are exposed to COVID-19," even though this is exactly what China, South Korea, and other countries have been doing to treat their patients.
The two federal agencies reportedly stormed the facility on 26 Mile Road and Van Dyke in Shelby Township just before 8 am on April 23, and proceeded to haul out boxes of medical records and other "evidence," sorting it into three makeshift tents. All of those involved with the raid were seen wearing full-body protective gear, including gas mask-type face coverings.

Owen Fonorow at the Vitamin C Foundation states that the cure for all viruses is to build up our own immune systems. Vaccines assist the immune system, but it's the immune system that's essential. People only die from a virus when their immune system is compromised.Shanghai Government Officially Recommends Vitamin C for COVID-19
Vitamin C is essential for the immune system. You must keep a certain level of Vitamin C in your body to have a working immune system. If you can't eat five oranges a day, or five other fruits high in Vitamin C, 250mg of Vitamin C supplements will give your body what it needs to keep an average person's immune system going strong. In cases of impaired immunity, caused by chronic diseases or poor nutrition, the foundation recommends higher doses of at least 3000mg daily.
Remember, the cure for all viruses is the immune system.
Vitamin C Blood Levels can be Higher from Oral Intake than Intravenous Infusion in the Early Minutes
Indeed, Marik, who remains a strong proponent of this approach, rejects the findings of the study. He tells NPR that by his reckoning, patients in the study received treatment far too late in the course of their disease. "It's like giving it to a patient who's dead," he says. "It's of no benefit. The horse was out of the barn miles beforehand."
Marik, at Eastern Virginia Medical School, gives his patients the vitamin C infusion as quickly as he recognizes signs of sepsis. That's impossible to do in a study in which participants must be enrolled in a study and then randomized into one of the two comparison groups before treatment can begin.
"The question is, why does this study not replicate real-life experience and the experience of hundreds of clinicians around the world?" he asks.
Marik says in his experience, the treatment is only effective if given within six hours after someone has suspected sepsis. At the meeting in Belfast, Dr. Tomoko Fujii, on the study research team at Monash University, said they provided treatment an average of 12 hours after patients arrived in the intensive care unit. Patients came from a variety of locations, including the emergency room, and she said they have no information about how long they had been septic before arriving at the ICU.
Deathbed Scurvy By Bill Sardi
We are using your product at our clinic and having demonstrated clinical success in reversing atherosclerosis (dosage is in range of 5000-10000 mg/ day). We are confirming the results with a capillary retinopathy diagnostic.
When vitamin C was injected into stressed mice, tumors shrank.
In addition, the intravenous vitamin C protected normal cells from the toxic effects of radiation therapy.
Though vitamin C supplementation has been proven to preserve infants' airways, McEvoy emphasized that getting expecting mothers to quit smoking during pregnancy "has to be priority one."
The interesting aspect is that most doctors are not familiar with hydrocortisone, the bioidentical equivalent to our natural hormone cortisol. hey are much more familiar with the drug-analogs, such as prednisone. But this Sepsis treatment specifically makes use of hydrocortisone. ER doctors, at least, have some learning to do.
Owen has always thought the suppression of vitamin C was the greatest suppression of alternative medicine, and his now evolving second book, on that subject, is available online at no cost: The Great Suppresion
Turns out, it isn't. The suppression of vitamin C isn't the greatest. There is a much larger suppression, but that is the story to add to the book. THE CURE FOR EVERYTHING. Safer than vitamin C. Orthomolecular. Can and should be given to pregnant women. Yet doctors are told, and they believe, it is the most "dangerous" drug they prescribe. Stay tuned.
Owen was In the hospital a few days ago, preparing for a major major surgery to remove a large defective hernia mesh. The surgeon wanted an assurance Owen's heart was okay for the surgery. Owen "knew it was," but since he was in the hospital anyway, everyone agreed that it was a good idea to have cardiology evaluate his heart. (Lots of stress lately, so Owen didn't know what the result would be.)
The Cardiologist verbal report given to Owen was that even at age 64, NOTHING COULD BE FOUND WRONG WITH HIS HEART. EVERYTHING NORMAL, NO BLOCKAGES OR ENLARGEMENTS. NO FLUIDS. NO INDICATION OF A FUTURE HEART ATTACK. (Copy of the doppler report is the second post in the forum link)
Owen has been proselytizing the so-called Pauling Therapy for heart disease (a term he invented to honor Pauling, and even wrote the best selling Amazon book (in its category) PRACTICING MEDICINE WITHOUT A LICENSE (now available in Amazon Kindle format). Owen knew there were callers, FDA 'plants,' investigating what he was saying over the phone, so he stopped taking phone calls, in favor of recommending the book. He titled the book because he was carefully advising callers over the phone – heart patients and doctors – to ignore a specialist, their cardiologists, and listen to Linus Pauling instead.
Patient after patient with severe Heart Disease, AND NO OTHER CONVENTIONAL OPTIONS, quickly recovered. Almost no exceptions. See the tip of the iceberg correspondence from all these happy people whose pain went away predictably in 10 days, and who not only could start walking, but then started painting their homes after 30 days on Pauling's correct dose therapy! (The first three case reports are on the Pauling unified theory lecture video)
Can you believe there has never been a SINGLE study (outside of Pauling's associate Matthias Rath) published to test Pauling's invention and unified theory? Most cardiologists will tell patients there is no proven value in vitamin C for heart disease. They're right. There isn't any "proven" value, because no one has tried to prove it – or disprove it. It simply works like a miracle in days. When it doesn't, we analyze cases at our forum, so we find out what is wrong (perhaps high blood sugar) and forum readers can monitor in real-time. We never know what will happen. Very few cases are intractable.
One thing from Owen's 2018 doppler (and previous perfect Thallium stress test in 2010/2011), it doesn't prove Pauling was right (he was), but it does prove that taking Pauling's therapy religiously as Owen does HAS NOT HURT IS HEART.
Scientists have discovered that vitamin C promotes the repair of the myelin sheath surrounding neurons, making it a potential treatment for multiple sclerosis.In this study, a research group led by Professor Xie Xin at the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica of the Chinese Academy of Sciences found that vitamin C greatly enhances the differentiation of oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPC) to oligodendrocytes (OL). OLs form myelin sheaths by wrapping around neurons in the CNS. The researchers established a high-throughput screening system to identify small molecule compounds that may promote OPC to OL differentiation. They found that vitamin C facilitates the formation of myelin sheaths in a co-culture of OPCs and neurons. Furthermore, vitamin C promoted the repair of myelin sheaths in vivo, as well as provided significant therapeutic effect in an animal model of multiple sclerosis. Interestingly, vitamin C’s function in promoting OPC differentiation is not related to its antioxidant activity. Rather, the researchers suggested that an intracellular mechanism might be involved.
I was born and raised in a household where we used vitamins instead of medicines.Consequently, I am very familiar with utilizing high-dose vitamin C to prevent and cure illness. Now that I have children of my own, vitamins help keep them healthy, too. I think you can do the same for your family.
Fasting Enhances Chemotherapy - Fasting Benefits May Exceed Any Cancer DrugStarting around minute 40, the USC research is discussed that found fasting mice can survive 2 to 3 times the ordinary cancer chemotherapy dosage that is allowed in humans, while the mice on a regular diet all die. In other words, a fasting mouse can survive a high toxic load.
The major finding is that the gene expression makes cancer cells MORE susceptible to chemo, and fasting even kills cancer cells without chemo.
The documentary reviews 60-years of untranslated Russian research into the unexpected health benefits of fasting. The clinics in Russia and Germany use 25 to 30 days of fasting, and the film goes on to explain how the gene expression (that changes in 2 days) explains many of the benefits.
There is a credible connection between MSM and hair growth. One study looked at the effect of Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) on hair growth in mice. The researchers combined MAP (a form of vitamin C) at 7.5% and MSM at 10% and concluded that results were “comparable to or better than the result in the group treated with minoxidil 5%”.
The results in a cohort over 38,000 were so strong and compelling the authors stated: Healthcare professionals may promote intake of these antioxidants in healthy amounts in order to reduce the incidence of this type of malignancy
Published in the journal Cell Biology International, the study investigated both low and high doses of vitamin C and Niacin on stem cells tumors of the intestine. Different dosages produced opposite effects.
Thus, it was found that when taking vitamin C to create a concentration of 5-25 micromole/L of vitamins C and B3, which is a low dosage, there is a process of active reproduction of stem cells tumors of the intestine. At high dosages (creating concentrations of 100 to 1,000 micromoles) these stem cells are destroyed.
The Vitamin C Foundation calculates that continuous oral supplemental
oral intakes of vitamin C can achieve the study's reported cancer-lethal concentrations in the blood.
The normal lab range for vitamin C is 0.4 mg/dl to 1.5 mg/dl,
(23 to 85 μM/L).
The Indian study results indicate that a 100 μM concentration (1.76 mg/dl)
is the low end of the cancer-lethal range, or just above steady state.
Sustaining this level requires continuous vitamin C supplementation,
as long advocated by vitamin C experts Steve Hickey and Hilary Roberts, PhDs.
While intravenous vitamin C can exceed the 10,000 μM by 2.5 times (e.g. 440 mg/dl or 24,983.2 μM/L )
this is apparently suboptimal,
and it is difficult to keep people on constant intravenous vitamin C infusions.
The low range (5 to 25 μM) that promotes the growth of cancer stem cells equals a lab range of 0.08 to 0.44 mg/dl which is below normal and can easily be raised through regular vitamin C supplementation.
The answer to the question of what oral dosage is required is:
Note: The current government RDA for vitamin C, and the dosage recommendations currently from the Linus Pauling Institute, promote Cancer Stem Cell (CSC) proliferation that spawns malignacies. According to the findings of researchers Sen, et. al., the dosage for cancer patients needs to be much higher to avoid spawning new aggressive cancers.
The Sen study is published in the journal Cell Biology International. Note: Pauling and Robinson are vindicated! They were both right.
Federal Death Administration (FDA) Attacks Vitamin C Foundation
VitaminCFoundation.ORG's mission: Change FDA law that turns non-toxic vitamin C into a "drug" because we tell the truth and say that vitamin C prevents, mitigates and/or cures disease.
Government bureaucrats would rather see American's suffer and die than allow the Vitamin C Foundation tell the truth. The bureaucrats would probably counter that they are simply following the law. If so, the law is immoral and needs to change. Sign the Petition
The FDA law and its interpretation doesn't promote the general welfare, improperly regulates free speech, harms most Americans after draining their savings on dangerous and unnecessary health care, all the while feeding a corrupt medical system. Sign the Petition
In the spring of 2017, after more than 20 years online, the FDA sent us a warning letter. Our attorney's advised us that this web site cannot have links positive scientific studies about vitamin C if we also sponsor and have links to any vitamin C products.
Whose interests do you think the FDA is really protecting? Sign the Petition Maybe vitamin C does threaten the profitablity of medicine?
Non toxic substances that make people healthier are not drugs. Telling the truth should never be against Federal law.
Drugs should be drugs because taking them might otherwise harm people without regulation.
Chicken Soup is not a drug, no matter what any company selling it says.
The Foundation hired Jonathan Emord and Associates to draft an amendmend to FDA law that alter the wording of the Federal Food and Drug act.

No Deaths from ANY Vitamin
Zero Fatalities from Any Dietary Supplement, e.g. Minerals, Vitamins, Amino Acids, Herbs, Homeopathic Remedies
Additionally, there were zero deaths from any amino acid or herbal product. This means no deaths at all from blue cohosh, echinacea, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, kava kava, St. John's wort, valerian, yohimbe, Asian medicines, ayurvedic medicines, or any other botanical. There were zero deaths from creatine, blue-green algae, glucosamine, chondroitin, melatonin, or any homeopathic remedy.
Furthermore, there were zero deaths from any dietary mineral supplement. This means there were no fatalities from calcium, magnesium, chromium, zinc, colloidal silver, selenium, iron, or multimineral supplements. Reported in the "Electrolyte and Mineral" category were two fatalities from the medical use of "Sodium and sodium salts." These are not dietary supplements.
The U.S. National Poison Data System is "the only comprehensive, near real-time, poisoning surveillance database in the United States. In 2013, poison professionals at the nation's 55 poison centers managed about 2.2 million human poison exposures, with children younger than 6 accounting for about half of all poison exposure cases."
Over half of the U.S. population takes daily nutritional supplements. Even if each of those people took only one single tablet daily, that makes 154,000,000 individual doses per day, for a total of over 56 billion doses annually. Since many persons take more than just one vitamin or mineral tablet, the numbers are considerably higher, and the safety of nutritional supplements is all the more remarkable

What if All Vitamin C Isn't Created Equal?Vitamin C comes in many forms. The most common form of vitamin C is Ascorbic Acid (Hydrogen Ascorbate). Vitamin C does not have to be acidic. It is also found in various alkaline forms; the mineral ascorbates: e.g. Sodium Ascorbate, Calcium Ascorbate, Magnesium Ascorbate, Potassium Ascorbate, etc.
(Note ascorbic acid is a weak acid, having about the same acidity as a cola soft drink)
Vitamin C also comes in different shapes in three-dimensional space. The different shapes of the ascorbate fraction have the same atoms, but the atoms are arranged differently, much like the right hand is the same but different than the left hand. This is called chirality in chemistry; Linus Pauling explained that there are exactly four different shapes ("sterioisomers") of the ascorbate ion, and they are L-ascorbate, D-ascorbate, LD-ascorbate and DL-ascorbate.
Thanks to Linus Pauling we know that only the L-ascorbate shape has vitamin C activity, i.e. only the L- shape can cure the vitamin C deficiency disease scurvy.
