"Orthomolecular Medicine emphasizes natural substances such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fats, and diet in the prevention and treatment of diseases. Food and chemical sensitivities, candida, and parasites are considered important. Chelation for the elimination of heavy toxic metals is utilized where needed. I am especially interested in the use of mega doses of vitamin C, both orally and intravenously." -Robert F. Cathcart, M.D.-

His book, Medical Pioneer of the 20th Century, Describes how acute induced scurvy is the cause of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.) His constant fight with the medical establishment in Australia and their refusal to listen to the obvious which would save thousands of infants is recorded. Describes how innocent people are unjustly jailed for the shaken baby syndrome. Describes the injustice of the Australian Nanny case (the most famous case of shaken baby syndrome.) Describes many other nutritional problems of the Aboriginal children which are also present in white children all over the world.
See the above book by Archie Kalokerinos, M.D., Medical Pioneer of the 20th Century, who has shown that SIDS is caused by acute induced scurvy. Why is this not investigated? As far as I know there have never been any studies that refute this claim. Is admitting that large doses of ascorbate that terrible? In the reference by Hattersley above one can see the massive number of references on this subject in the literature. This hiding of the efficacy of ascorbate is going from the ridiculous to the sublime.
The proposed studies are fraught with possibilities of not making it work if previous patterns of investigating ascorbate are utilized. One of the frequent problems of investigators who have contacted me about investigating ascorbate is that the investigational committees, ethics committee, or pharmacy committee will not allow the investigator to use adequate doses of ascorbate thereby insuring failure of the project. To learn how to treat many cancers with ascorbate, the investigators should contact Hugh Riordan, M.D. Refusing to do that I would suggest no less than 60-120 grams of sodium ascorbate intravenously rapidly infused at a rate of 60 grams in 2 to 3 hours every day for several months. As the tumor resolves, the infusions may possibly be dropped to 2 times a week for a long time. One caution is that if the patient has not been taking ascorbate orally in fairly large doses, they should be started on oral ascorbic acid very slowly if there is widespread metastasis. This caution is because about one out of 100 tumors will suddenly drop dead at the sight of ascorbate and the sudden death of a large tumor mass may kill the patient. This caution was noted in Cameron and Pauling's Vitamin C and Cancer. Additionally, I would suggest a overall nutritional support plan that Hugh Riordan, M.D. could help with. Especially important in addition to the basic nutrients is alpha lipoic acid 100 mg 3 times a day.
This paper is important when one is thinking about how ascorbate could selectively kill cancer and not normal cells. Normal cells have catalase and cancer cells do not.
This disease is made more deadly because of the "acute induced scurvy" involved. This means that intravenous sodium ascorbate and later bowel tolerance doses of ascorbic acid should be administered along with the appropriate antibiotic. Not only does the ascorbate broaden the spectrum of activity of the antibiotics against bacteria and works synergistically with the antibiotic, but it avoids allergic reactions to the antibiotic. The susceptibility of sick people to allergic reactions is because of the up-regulation of the immune system while you are sick. This up-regulation is caused by free radicals. If the free radicals are neutralized by massive doses of ascorbate, the immune system, as far as allergic reactions are concerned, is down-regulated so that allergic reactions to the antibiotics do not occur. However, unlike steroids that universally down-regulate the immune system, ascorbate up-regulates the ability of white cells to kill viruses and bacteria.
The incidence of meningitis "surges" after the flu because the acute induced scurvy induced by the flu decreases the ability of the body to fight off the meningitis bacteria.
We had better quit ignoring the Massive Doses of Vitamin C cures of many of these diseases before it is too late. Even if an epidemic broke out which was 90% fatal, it would take too long for the medical profession to get its act together. I do not look forward to a small population of vitamin C takers left to populate the world.
An epidemic of the flu in a country is where they are too dumb to know how to use ascorbate properly.
In the US the worst is yet to come . This epidemic is totally unnecessary because we can cure the flu with massive doses of ascorbic acid orally and, in the worst cases (or cases who also have ulcers, gastritis, etc., preventing taking adequate dose of ascorbic acid), with intravenous sodium ascorbate. The flu virus damages mitochondria in the affected tissues which cause the mitochondria to make free radicals. These free radicals damage adjacent mitochondria which cause them to make more free radicals. A free radical cascade results. This massive amount of free radicals destroys all the vitamin C in the affected tissues. Without vitamin C the white cells cannot eat up the viruses. The only thing that saves most is that after a week or so, the antibodies destroy the viruses. Antibodies are turned on by free radicals. In the meantime, the "acute induced scurvy " in the affected tissues may result in pneumonia, sinusitis, otitis media, etc. All this can be averted with massive doses of ascorbate. What we are doing with the truly massive doses of ascorbate is throwing away the vitamin C for the electrons carried by the vitamin C. We are driving the electrons in high concentration (forcing a reducing redox potential) into the affected tissues and neutralizing the free radicals. Incidentally, it also provides enough vitamin C in the affected tissues so that the white cells come out fighting mad and destroy the viruses immediately. This phenomenon is a threshold phenomenon: a high enough concentration of ascorbate and its electrons must be achieved, and then suddenly the free radicals are neutralized. Lesser doses will not accomplish this. If done properly, the massive doses of ascorbate will cure the disease.
For God's sake, they can use intravenous sodium ascorbate and stop this carnage. These patients should be given up to three bottles of 60 grams of sodium ascorbate per 24 hours until they are much better, then continue bowel tolerance doses of ascorbic acid until well. If the doctors will not give the sodium ascorbate intravenously then take the bowel tolerance doses of ascorbic acid by mouth and if you have a strong stomach, it will probably save your life.
This is tragic. These patients are dying of acute induced scurvy. Intravenous ascorbate should be used in all these flu cases. Ascorbate would markedly reduce the death rate.
This Flu is obviously causing Acute Induced Scurvy and this causes the spread into bronchitis, pneumonia, etc., and we will be very lucky if there are no deaths among some elderly. All this could be averted with massive doses of ascorbic acid orally or in severe cases intravenous sodium ascorbate.
This is ridiculous. Many people will die if ascorbate is not used.
Comment by RFC: The Medical Tribune, which under the guidance of the great humanitarian and medical prophet Arthur M. Sackler, M.D., followed my early work on vitamin C ( 1, 2, 3), is still in the forefront in reporting the importance of nutritional and integrative medicine ( 1, 2).
Comment by RFC: Note in all of these cases that develop into a hemorrhagic fever, the toxicity of the disease is so severe as to deplete all of the bodies of vitamin C, this results in acute induced systemic scurvy which results in hemorrhaging from many tissues of the body. The administration of intravenous vitamin C in combination with the standard treatments for the disease would reduce the fatality rates of these diseases. In all these diseases, if the serum vitamin C were to be measured, it would be found to be zero. This then results in the breakdown of all tissues requiring collagen which includes blood vessels. Hemorrhage results (a classic sign of scurvy.)
The reason these patients hemorrhage is because of "acute induced scurvy." They should be treated with intravenous sodium ascorbate and then ascorbic acid orally as they recover. A lot of people may die unnecessarily of this disease some day soon if this treatment with ascorbate for infectious diseases is not recognized.
Comment by RFC: Note that these classic cases of scurvy are the result of chronic deficiency of vitamin C. Imagine what happens when a severe infectious diseasse wipes out all of the vitamin C in the body in a few hours. The capillaries hemorrhage all over the body. Some patients with a disease such as Dengue Fever, if they started out in very good health or have early treatment, etc., may not go onto the hemorrhagic stage; but if the disease is able to totally deplete the vitamin C of the body, shortly the hemorrhages start and the white cells cannot fight the virus. Death is almost certain unless the acute systemic scurvy is treated with massive doses of C. The doses have to be massive because the massive amounts of free radicals generated by the disease process destroy the vitamin C at such a rate that the doses based upon the usual concepts of how vitamin C should be administered are many times inadequate.

Review of Dr. Levy's book by Andrew Saul, PhD.
Remember that measles is easily cured or ameliorated by
massive doses of ascorbate. I found this link on the Drudge Report but it comes up with a
blank page with just the header. I always wonder what is going on when references
like this disappear. I will try to keep on top of this. The reason I was so
interested in this is because massive doses of vitamin C (ascorbic acid orally or sodium
ascorbate intravenously) is helpul with the Gulf War Syndrome. Subsequently,
browsing the newspapers revealed that the suspected drug was a vaccination against nerve
gas. Vitamin C:
mysterious benefits. (please follow the various links of this site.) This article clearly spells out part of how drug companies think. Did you know
that your health is subject to this kind of thinking? Wake up. I find this article amazing. It is the first time I have seen a source
like Harvard say that there is any value in eliminating nightshades and other possible
food allergins in arthritis. It is about time considering that we have known this
for years. Since fibromyalgia is a frequent symptom of the chronic fatigue syndrome, I guess his
conclusion would be that if a person has a cough with a cold, it is psychological. If you do not understand the disease, blame it on the patient. Exercise increases the formation of free radicals. Sometimes this is enough in
some people to develop urticaria and other signs of anaphylaxis. Massive doses of
ascorbate will prevent this by neutralizing these extra free radicals. The other thing is the comment that B6 can be dangerous. Yes, it can cause
numbness and tingling, even finally a temporary paralysis but this is really not due to a
B6 toxicity; it is an induced deficiency of other B vitamins causing beriberi or pellagra.
Anyone in orthomolecular medicine knows that you never give large doses of B6
without moderate doses of the other B vitamins. If non-orthomolecular M.D.s would
stop cutting vitamins, they might learn how to use them. One very subtile fact is that by scare tactics arguing over 500 mg doses of
vitamin C, they completely hide the fact that to get dramatic cures of some diseases it
takes 50 to 200 grams or more (50,000 to 200,000 mg or more) of vitamin C. The
amazing thing is that these huge doses do not cause these troubles but they keep us
worrying about a pitiful 1/2 gram or 500 mg. Really. It is
interesting to see a subject like vitamin E being good for the heart being written about
by the experts and never giving the Shute brothers any credit. I am interested in

You will then understand the dangerousness of this type of thinking.

At 3 grams a day, they began to see some results. I wonder if
the pharmacy committee and the ethics committee at their hospital would let
them use 300 grams a day (if a miracle happens and they
do approve such a study, remember that massive doses of ascorbate have to be
buffered if given IV . That is why I am calling it sodium ascorbate all the
time to avoid confusion.) Then they would see spectacular results.
Don't get me wrong, this study is a step in the correct direction but at this
rate it will be a couple of generations before the true potential of massive
doses of vitamin C will be realized and the profits of the drug industry
However, the authors are to be congratulated because they have managed
to sneak over on the editors the fact of acute induced
scurvy after injury and infection. This is a step in the right
direction and makes it difficult to rationalize not giving large doses of C.
Actually, it won't make much difference for years because
the tactic is to stonewall massive doses of vitamin C. The genocidal
jerks protecting the profits of the drug industry know full well that their
ridiculous position against massive doses of ascorbate cannot stand up to any
scientific study. (Note: the little "s"
science, not the big "S" religious
Science of the quackbusters.)
It is probably a good thing to give a little vitamin E along with the C but
more importantly higher and higher doses of C should be used. You should
give the C until all the symptoms of the influenza are eliminated (neutralize
all the free radicals.) So whenever you limit the amount of vitamin C
given the experiment does not reflect on how C will work if it is administered
Another thing is that mice are ascorbate producing animals so you have to be
careful that ascorbate you give them does not inhibit the amount of ascorbate
they make. Therefore, experiments concerning ascorbate have little human
relevance unless done on man, monkey, or the guinea pig. These animals
make not ascorbate themselves.
And this is nothing compared to
the systematic suppression of knowledge about vitamin C. All of this
profits the drug industry.
In the 1970's a drug resistant gonorrhea was spreading around King's Beach,
California. I never saw a case that did not respond to
bowel tolerance doses of ascorbic acid plus the
usually otherwise effective antibiotic. Not only did the ascorbate
increase the spectrum of activity of the antibiotic to include the resistant
strains but it prevented allergic reactions to the antibiotic. Gonorrhea
without its free radical cover is nothing and without free radicals, there are
no allergic reactions. No wonder the drug industry does not want the
public to find out about massive doses of ascorbate.
What about all that propaganda about vitamin C being toxic to the kidneys?
Could this be part of the plan to keep people from learning how to use massive
doses of ascorbate to cure acute infectious diseases?
Probably they were getting good results an extension of which might
reduce the use and therefore the profits of the drug industry.
As it has become almost impossible to tell the public that vitamin C
is useless, this is the next generation of stalls. Sounds good but it
hides the fact that massive doses of ascorbate can cure the acute infectious
diseases. At the rate they are using it like in this case 1 gram, they
will be able to stall another 100 years before the correct way of using
ascorbate will be discovered. Hopefully, the

then it would become obvious that all infectious diseases can be cured or

Anything to protect the profits. The fact that polio

Views of the Optimun Doses of Vitamin C, E. Ginter, Solvak Republc
These views are interesting but they cannot see the forest for the
leaves. All of the arguments are based on laboratory tests or on
statistical analysis of groups of people. This is fine as far as it goes
but unfortunately it seems to hide from them the usefulness of massive doses
of ascorbate in the treatment of acute diseases and conditions.
The problem is that to force a reducing redox potential onto the tissues
involved in a disease, it takes far higher doses than are discussed in this
article. Ginter is almost there but is missing the big point about
massive doses of ascorbate. I hope this is an honest error and not just
part of the plot to preserve the profits of the drug industry. It is
typical of what will be an new generation of thought about vitamin C and will
be used by many to delay the recognition of the great value of massive doses
of ascorbate in treating many diseases. This is particularly sad when we
consider the value of ascorbate in treating diseases that might be used in

This sounds like a great idea. It is only a hypothesis but those doing
research of this type should realize that if the virus begins to do undesirable damage to
the patient that they could be "rescued" with massive amounts of ascorbate
intravenously. Remember that even
the wild strains of polio can easily be cured with intravenous ascorbate.
This is only a hypothesis but this is the reason that I think
that the free radicals generated by infections, which damage cells, should be aggressively scavenged with ascorbate when
someone has any infectious disease. This scavenging would prevent damage to cells
that make them appear to be foreign to the immune system and trigger off autoimmune
diseases in the genetically susceptible person.
All this interferon jazz is ridiculous. It is very
expensive and has many side reactions. Acute hepatitis C can easily be cured with intravenous ascorbate and chronic hepatitis
C can be controlled with oral C to tolerance,
alpha lipoic acid, selenium, silymarin, vitamin E, and a multiple vitamin-mineral
program. This is inexpensive and has no significant side reactions. I have
never seen a case need liver transplant, cancer of the liver, or acute hepatic
necrosis. This is not a hypothesis; this works.
Maybe this is why massive doses of
ascorbate help asthmatics so much. Since ascorbate ameliorates all infectious
diseases by scavenging free radicals, we would expect it to help asthma. I noticed
a news item last night where websites were graded by certain words they included like
inhalants for asthma. This is not graded well because patients treated with
ascorbate usually do not need inhalers.
Obviously. This liver toxicity can be prevented with oral C to tolerance, alpha lipoic acid,
selenium, silymarin, vitamin E, and a multiple vitamin-mineral program.
Regardless, anyone taking statin drugs should be taking CoQ10 also.

exactly what I have been worrying about. Millions would die unnecessarily.
While we wait for some drug to be developed, it is ignored that massive doses of ascorbate
will take out flues. Linus Pauling was on the correct path but he did not give high
enough doses to take out the most severe colds and flues. The trick is to give high
enough doses to eliminate all the free radicals generated by the disease process.
In this article, it is mentioned that 20,000 Americans
die each year of the flu. This is a terrible fact but even more terrible when it is
realized that most of these deaths could be avoided if massive doses of ascorbate were
utilized. If the worst cases were given 2-3 days of intravenous sodium ascorbate,
all but a rare case would be fine. Note that these treatments can be started after

I can tell you for sure that low doses, such as described in this paper, will give

of ascorbate demonstrated that only the massive doses, as described in my papers, will
work. Lesser doses will only prolong the misery of those affected by these

Delay By Intellectualization
As evidence of the value of nutrients,
especially vitamin C, as illustrated in the articles above becomes more and more evident
to the public, researches produce a mass of articles on minute aspects of vitamin C.
I have been consulted by many researchers who proposed bold studies of the effects of
massive doses of ascorbate. Every time the university center, the ethics committee,
the pharmacy committee, etc. deny permission for the use of massive doses of ascorbate and
render the study almost useless. Seasoned researchers depending upon government
grants do not even try to study adequate doses. All of this results in a massive
accumulation of knowledge about very little which gives the impression that there is no
more of real importance to be learned. This accumulation of minutia hides the great
effects of ascorbate already known by some. The following sites reflect this
problem. As you read these learned papers, you will realize that they seem to be
completely unaware of the uses of massive doses of ascorbate. One of the most
amusing aspects of this research are the speculations and research into the toxicity and
other adverse reactions of tiny doses of ascorbate when many have used for years 20 to 100
times the amounts being discussed.
Another Point of View
Interesting, but who paid for this study?
Possibly, but then they are less likely to get the flu if they are taking vitamin
C. Also, if they do get the flu, the symptoms can be ameliorated or cured with
massive doses of vitamin C. Also, probably the rare complication of Reye's syndrome
can be prevented.
The trouble with all these comments about vitamin C in the treatment of cancer is
that none of them use high enough doses. Sodium ascorbate administered in doses
like 60-120 grams at the rate of 1 gram per minute intravenously 2 to 3 times a week
produces peroxide in the cancer cells and selectively kills the cancer cells (See
the article, "Intravenous Ascorbate as a Chemotherapeutic and Biologic Response
Modifying Agent," by Hugh Riordan, M.D., Neil H. Riordan, PA-C, and Ronald E.
Hunninghake, M.D. (Note that alpha lipoic acid used at the same time seems to
augment the effect of C on killing cancer.) Any opinions based on lesser doses are
evading the whole point, clouding the issue, and delaying this very useful treatment at
the expense of many lost lives. I named this effect of C on cancer "the Riordan Effect." I would appreciate it if
anyone who knows Dr. Weil would contact him and make him aware of this article.

Comment by RFC: I really did not know where to put this
article because it just illustrates a point of how much money and how many souls will be
lost over a subject that is easily treated. So far, I have never seen a case of
acute viral hepatitis which was treated immediately with intravenous sodium ascorbate in the acute
stage which ever persisted and went on to the chronic stage. Usually, the jaundice
is cleared in 4 to 5 days. The SGOT and SGPT start dropping precipitously after the
first IVC. The patient feels better in 2 or 3 days. Apparently the skin is
stained and that is why the jaundice takes so long to go away. It confounds me as to
why this inexpensive, simple, nontoxic treatment will not be applied to patients.
Comment by RFC: The amounts of vitamin C advised here are too
low even for well people because of the toxic contaminations in our environment.
However, the major problem of this article is the complete misunderstanding or
ignoring of the potential of massive doses of vitamin C in the treatment of various
diseases such as infections of all sorts, trauma, surgery, burns, autoimmune diseases,
prevention of most allergic reactions to antibiotics, the reduction of complications of
chemotherapy and radiotherapy, acute pain, etc.. Additionally, the existence of
chronic conditions in the patients body such as undetected allergies, chronic pain, all
sorts of stress, EBV, CMV, Hepatitis A thru C and +, Herpes 1 thru 6 & +, HIV 1 &
2, over-colonization of the gut with yeast, parasites, and some unwanted bacteria, and
many other as yet undiscovered organisms, etc., generating free radicals have to be
considered in determining the proper dose of vitamin C in a particular person.
how the the law is after the Quackbusters but now the same people have a new
organization to continue their propaganda.

the latest on how the idiot Quackbusters are taking gas!
Barrett Crushed in Federal Court - Again.., June 25, 2003.
Quackwatch in Legal Trouble
Read how backward and harmful Quackbusters are. The big problem is
that many orthodox doctors believe this junk.
The public is finally finding out about the genocidal damage
that these quackbusters have done to the public. Women, children, oldsters
and most others have been damaged or killed by the pushing of drugs where
nutrients would do better. Essentially, Bob Sinaiko's crime was to
recognize the role of food allergies in the treatment of hyperactivity, and
refused to drug children as demanded by the quackbusters. So the bastards
put this honorable, creative physician through hell. This is one of the
major reasons why real medical progress is so slow. Medicine is so
demoralized by this conspiracy and the malpractice crisis that you are lucky to
get an English speaking nurse in the hospital. Wages have to be cut so
that hospitals can afford all the nonsense caused by the malpractice crisis
How can you expect that they tell the difference between right or left or A, B,
O, AB, (+) or (-) if they work in a Tower of Babel or just don't care. It
is difficult to love your job in medicine these days. Doctors are taught
to and expected to use drugs, drugs, drugs. Creative people no longer want
to go into medicine. No wonder mistakes are increasing in incidence and
that those who still go into medicine do not care. Under current
circumstances, it can only get worse. Lack of progress accumulates like
compound interest. Of course, the malpractice attorneys love this. I
estimate that for every case of malpractice prevented under the present system,
thousands of people die, are maimed, or suffer unnecessarily because of the
demoralization and retardation of medical practice. The tragic thing is
that the average person does not even know when they are a victim of all of this
They have had standard practice of the community medicine. It will get
worse and more expensive.

Remember that measles is easily cured or ameliorated by massive doses of ascorbate.
I found this link on the Drudge Report but it comes up with a blank page with just the header. I always wonder what is going on when references like this disappear. I will try to keep on top of this. The reason I was so interested in this is because massive doses of vitamin C (ascorbic acid orally or sodium ascorbate intravenously) is helpul with the Gulf War Syndrome. Subsequently, browsing the newspapers revealed that the suspected drug was a vaccination against nerve gas.
Vitamin C: mysterious benefits. (please follow the various links of this site.)
This article clearly spells out part of how drug companies think. Did you know that your health is subject to this kind of thinking? Wake up.
I find this article amazing. It is the first time I have seen a source like Harvard say that there is any value in eliminating nightshades and other possible food allergins in arthritis. It is about time considering that we have known this for years.
Since fibromyalgia is a frequent symptom of the chronic fatigue syndrome, I guess his conclusion would be that if a person has a cough with a cold, it is psychological.
If you do not understand the disease, blame it on the patient.
Exercise increases the formation of free radicals. Sometimes this is enough in some people to develop urticaria and other signs of anaphylaxis. Massive doses of ascorbate will prevent this by neutralizing these extra free radicals.
The other thing is the comment that B6 can be dangerous. Yes, it can cause numbness and tingling, even finally a temporary paralysis but this is really not due to a B6 toxicity; it is an induced deficiency of other B vitamins causing beriberi or pellagra. Anyone in orthomolecular medicine knows that you never give large doses of B6 without moderate doses of the other B vitamins. If non-orthomolecular M.D.s would stop cutting vitamins, they might learn how to use them.
One very subtile fact is that by scare tactics arguing over 500 mg doses of vitamin C, they completely hide the fact that to get dramatic cures of some diseases it takes 50 to 200 grams or more (50,000 to 200,000 mg or more) of vitamin C. The amazing thing is that these huge doses do not cause these troubles but they keep us worrying about a pitiful 1/2 gram or 500 mg. Really.
It is interesting to see a subject like vitamin E being good for the heart being written about by the experts and never giving the Shute brothers any credit. I am interested in who will discover titrating to bowel tolerance with ascorbic acid years from now so I can apologize to them for plagiarizing their work back in the '70s.
I advise that you first look at the Quackwatch website (the following link) and then read the various exposures of the character of the people behind them. You will then understand the dangerousness of this type of thinking. Unfortunately, much of orthodoxy relies on such as Quackwatch. The effect is genocidal.
