Well, I’ve gotten a lot of response to my YouTube video on Preventing Autism, as well as many emails from different people who “asked their doctor”, or had heard various lies and rumors about vitamin C.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=er9x8WieNEs I apologize for the poor quality of the video, but I am not an expert in video. Preventing autism is critical, but none of the various “non profit” organizations seem to be interested. No money in that?
1. The most “wrong” lie is that vitamin C is used for abortions, and causes them. Many years ago Dr Klenner fed over 300 pregnant women vitamin C in amounts from 5 to 10 grams per day (5000-10,000 mg) all during their pregnancy with not only no abortions or miscarriages, but in general much better health than average contemporaries.
2. The next lie stems from Big Pharma “research” that comes up every so often that vitamin C is not effective against either virus or bacteria. As Linus Pauling put it, “Law: the number one side effect of vitamins is failure to take enough of them.”
These “studies” are usually done by people that think that because the FDA for C is only 75 mg, that 500 mg is a “megadose”. Remember that 75 mg is the amount that will JUST prevent scurvy. It is not even close to good health. Learn and Remember four facts:
a. Bacteria and virus both multiply in a binary replication, i.e., they double every 20 minutes or so.
b. You MUST saturate the bloodstream, and keep it saturated for several hours to kill ALL of the infecting agents.
c. The only effect from overdosing on vitamin C is diarrea.
d. The RDA for a 150 pound primate in a zoo is 4000 mg per day. (Ask a vet, NOT an MD about vitamin C.)
500 mg of vitamin C daily will not kill even half of the infecting agents, even if taken at one time. It takes a minimum of 2000 mg (2 grams) to do this, and that lasts only 2-4 hours. It is used up by combining with the infecting agent very quickly. How long vitamin C lasts in the bloodstream depends on how much, and what jobs it has to do.
So, even assuming that 500 mg kills of half of the infection, just 20 minutes later the infection is right back to where it started. This means that in the best conditions, in one hour after the vitamin C was taken, the virus or bacteria is twice as strong as when it started.
These studies underwritten by Big Pharma is only a small part of it’s efforts to protect their income. Another example: If women knew that vitamin B6 and magnesium stopped PMS, how much money would they lose on Midll, and various other drugs? It’s money folks!
3. The last is something few MD’s are even aware of (again due to Big Pharmas “brainwashing”.) Vitamin C and glutathione are the two natural chelation chemicals that get toxic minerals and other toxins out of the body. Why don’t MD’s know this simple fact? They’re “educationally handicapped” first by the medical training which doesn’t devote any real time to vitamins and minerals, second by the fact that no medical journals (where they get their updated medical info) simply cannot publish vitamin information, or Big Pharma will cut their advertising – the lifeblood of all med journals.
Because I was unable to prescribe the “usual” drugs (EDTA or Penicillamine) in my practice, I was forced to look for an alternate. Carl Pfeiffer , the foremost expert (then and still IMO), told me to try vitamin C. I used in my practice for successful treatment of over 10 high copper schizophrenia patients. An interesting sidelight – all such patients lost all of the schizophrenic symptoms within days of taking vitamin C.
The following is found in Dr Klenner’s “Clinical Guide to the Use of Vitamin C”,
Heavy Metal Poisonings: Especially lead and mercury–are controlled with Vitamin C injections and oral intake. An intake of Vitamin C daily will protect animals–and by extrapolation, humans–from fatal doses of mercury. If a guinea pig needed 200 mg one day to protect it from an otherwise fatal dose of mercury, the human would need 14 grams daily. Smaller doses would be able to protect the body from smaller amounts of the toxin.
Lead poisoning: 350 mg of Vitamin C per one kg of body weight taken intramuscularly every two to four hours; recovery in less than 72 hours.
The “greats” in the Orthomolecular Medical Society, Linus Pauling, Carl Pfeiffer, Emanuel Cheraskin, William J. McCormick, Irwin Stone, Robert F. Cathcart, and Andrew Saul all agree with me on the use of vitamin C as opposed to drugs.
For all those who would like to learn more about vitamin C as an old “miracle drug” here are some unbiased info by a few of these “greats”,
