"The great mass of people will more easily fall victim to a big lie than a small one." Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, 1925,  The biggest, costliest, and most genocidal lie of the 20th, now into the 21st century, is that you cannot cure or ameliorate all sorts of infectious diseases with massive doses of vitamin C.

Ascorbate for Burns

Because of all the burns in New York and at the Pentagon, I would like to try again to tell the medical profession, if they would listen, how so much misery and how many infections and deaths could be averted if intravenous and topical sodium ascorbate would be used in the treatment of severe burns.  Note that in the above link to Klenner's article, he refers to the ascorbate used as ascorbic acid.  Actually, he means sodium ascorbate for intravenous and topical use.  This difference is caused by previous labeling practices.

The Answer to Crib Death “Sudden Infant Death Syndrome” (SIDS) by Joseph G. Hattersley

Cause Of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Remains Elusive

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.

Sudden Infant Death - Treat With Vitamin C, Not Prison

New insights into the physiology and pharmacology of vitamin C with suggestions about investigating intravenous ascorbate in the treatment of cancer.

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.

Proof versus plausibility: rules of engagement for
the struggle to evaluate alternative cancer
therapies

The in vitro cytotoxicity of ascorbate depends on the culture medium used to perform the assay and involves hydrogen peroxide.

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.

Polio Cured with Intravenous Vitamin C

POLIO CURED IN 1948

Fred Klenner, M.D. Cured Polio in 1948 with Intravenous Sodium Ascorbate.

 

 

WHO Says One Polio Strain Eradicated but there are 2 strains remaining affecting more than 28,000 cases a year.  Why are not the more than 28,000 cases a year treated with intravenous sodium ascorbate which would cure most of them?  You know, of course, that how to cure polio was published in 1949?   You didn't know that?  I wonder why not.  There has never been a paper to counter Klenner's clinical observations.  I wonder why not.

Measles Kills 45 in India; May Be New Type

Ascorbic acid in large doses orally will ameliorate measles.  In cases where there is inflammation of the brain, intravenous sodium ascorbate should be used.  These types of diseases kill by way of free radicals.  This is a very simple situation to solve.  You just give massive doses of ascorbate in sufficient amounts to provide the electrons to neutralize the free radicals.  The person's immune system then makes short work of the virus.  This works with all acute self-limiting viral diseases because they all kill or cause symptoms and complications with free radicals.


Legionnaire's Disease

Legionnaire's Disease - Probable Cure

The president of one of the companies that I have worked with in the past told me this story:  In 1976, he and his friend went to a conference in Philadelphia.  A few days after he came home, he came down with what he thought was bronchitis.  He said that he thought that it would be a good time to try "Cathcart's titrating to bowel tolerance" with vitamin C.  So he began taking ascorbic acid in large doses (actually he did not get to tolerance at first).  The next day he was not well but he was still working.  So he raised the dose.  Still no diarrhea; he was not well but still working.  Then he heard that his friend had died!!!  He went to his doctor who tested his blood and prescribed him erythromycin.  The first dose made him so sick that he did not take more erythromycin.  He increased the dose of C and after a few days was all well.  The blood work had come back by this time and it showed he had had Legionnaire's disease.  The conference he had gone to was that famous Legionnaire's meeting.  His friend had died of the disease. 

OK gang, why don't you try this?  With a death rate of 20%-50% what could it hurt?  Those who are not yet hospitalized can try the titrating to bowel tolerance method (Do see your doctor and take his prescription probably of erythromycin.)   However, if you are in the hospital and can get your physician's cooperation, be given intravenous sodium ascorbate.   Recovery should be quite rapid.  It cannot hurt and may save your life.  There is no conflict between ascorbate and antibiotics and the ascorbate will, most probably, block any true allergic reaction to the antibiotic.

Acute Induced Systemic Scurvy Watch   

            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.)

    Health News

    (note: I am leaving some of the following links in place even after they have been discontinued because they still serve to illustated the large number of articles coming out of the lay press that prove that nutrients are of value.  They put some of the statements in a following section "Another Point of View" in proper perspective.)

    Possible Use of Ascorbate in Bacteriologic Warfare

     


    Drug, Gulf War Syndrome link possible...

    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.

    [ Definition | PublicationsOrganizations | Resources | News | Another View | Nutri-Store ]

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
