Post Strep Throat?
Anybody have direct experience with V-C treatment of Strep throat? Or any references that specifically mention Strep throat? I have read of people undergoing low dose radiation treatments for strep throat. Personally, I don't doubt that C would be effective against Strep :) , but I want something substantial to toss out for the skeptic of skeptics at work :twisted: .

I don't think C is that effective alone

Vitamin C, low carb/zero carb diet with Zinc, Ehinacea, H2O2 or Lugol mouth wash should all be combined.

Yes, you make a good point. I can see now that my post was too narrowly worded. I know that V=C is often used in conjunction with others. I was really horrified to learn that low dose radiation was used on strep throat. I am really interested in actual cases where non-pharma was used sucessfully againt strep. And I am thinking that C would probably be a major part of the treatment. BTW, the last time I had a sore throat (not strep), I used a device I built from a 6 volt battery to knock it back. Ultimately, I went to an ND and got an herbal preparation that finished it off. I tend to think that if I had the device built earlier, and used it, the trip to the ND would not have been necessary.

There are 13 pages in Dr. Levy's Curing the Incurable (136 - 149) about vitamin C's effects on different Streptococcal infections. He focuses on the most severe ones, like Rheumatic and Scarlet fevers and pneumonia, but presumably, what works against them stands a good chance against Strep throat as well.

Quote:
Streptococcal bacterial infections appear to be especially responsive to vitamin C therapy. High enough doses can be expected to cure most streptococcal infections, although rheumatic fever has not clearly been shown to be curable. However, the resolution of rheumatic fever is clearly accelerated by the administration of vitamin C...

When my dentist learned of my inflamed tonsils she recommend gargling with iodine and salt. And the effect on my sore throat was positive, and fast acting.

Great. I do that now to.
Is there any potential problem with Iodine mouth wash on longer run ? Could you perhaps ask your dentist could it be done on a daily bases. I guess yes, but you never know...
