I have been diagnosed with atrial flutter. I also have hyertension and narrowing of the arteries, but the drugs I was prescribed caused drastic side effects, except the heart medcication when given intraveniously. Unfortunately, my doctor says this is not viable - so I\'m trying to find an alternative cure. At the moment my heartbeat is steady, but I assume I still have the other problems. I have tried vitamin C before, but find it makes my gullet sore and causes diarrhoea. Which form of vitamin C is best for me?
Per Linus Pauling, vitamin C must be taken continually, every day, in the correct amounts.
Re: "sore gullet", it sounds like you might benefit from sodium ascorbate (or adding some baking soda as Pauling did to your ascorbic acid). (by the way, I hope you are not taking stomach acid blockers! We already know the proton-pump inhibitors (e.g. Prilozec) block vitamin C uptake, but yesterday there was a news report that they also cause severe magnesium deficiency!)
If diarrhea is a problem at low dosages, then we might recommend a well aborbed liposomal form of vitamin C - such as livonlabs.com Lypo-C.

And this link by one of our forum members may help you determine the MINIMUM vitamin C you require daily based on weight, age and other factors.
He recommends initially doubling the calculated amount for therapeutic effect.
