CORONAVIRUS 101: HEALTH & IMMUNITY
|COVID-19, REAL INSIGHTS: CONSOLIDATING REAL INFORMATION AND BRINGING THE HYPE INTO A RATIONAL SPACE|
Nutritional Treatment of Coronavirus Andrew Saul, PhD refers to Frederick R. Klenner, MD, and Robert F. Cathcart, MD, successfully used this approach for decades. Frequent oral dosing with vitamin C sufficient to reach a daily bowel tolerance limit will work for most persons. Intravenous vitamin C is indicated for the most serious cases. Bowel tolerance levels of vitamin C, taken as divided doses all throughout the day, are a clinically proven antiviral without equal. Vitamin C can be used alone or right along with medicines if one so chooses.
Dr. Robert Cathcart advocated treating influenza with up to 150,000 milligrams of vitamin C daily, often intravenously. You and I can, to some extent, simulate a 24 hour IV of vitamin C by taking it by mouth very, very often. When I had pneumonia, it took 2,000 mg (1 teaspoon of NuVita Vita C) of vitamin C every six minutes, by the clock, to get me to saturation. The oral daily dose was over 100,000 mg.
Fever, cough and other symptoms were reduced in hours; complete recovery took just a few days. That is performance at least as good as any pharmaceutical will give, and the vitamin is both safer and cheaper. Many physicians consider high doses of vitamin C to be so powerful an antiviral that it may be ranked as a functional immunization for a variety influenza strains.
Dr. Cathcart states that “The sicker a person was, the more ascorbic acid they would tolerate orally without it causing diarrhea.
In a person with an otherwise normal GI tract when they were well, would tolerate 5 to 15 grams of ascorbic acid orally in divided doses without diarrhea. With a mild cold 30 to 60 grams; with a bad cold, 100 grams; with a flu, 150 grams; and with mononucleosis, viral pneumonia, etc. 200 grams or more of ascorbic acid would be tolerated orally without diarrhea.
The process of finding what dose will cause diarrhea and will eliminate the acute symptoms, is called titrating to bowel tolerance. “The ascorbate effect is a threshold effect. Symptoms are usually neutralized when a dose of about 90% or more of bowel tolerance is reached with oral ascorbic acid. Intravenous sodium ascorbate is about 2½ times more powerful than ascorbic acid by mouth and since for all practical purposes huge doses of sodium ascorbate are non-toxic, whatever dose necessary to eliminate free radical driven symptoms should be given.”
The coronavirus, in acute infections, may be expected to be just as susceptible to vitamin C as all of the other viruses against which it has been proven to be extremely effective. There has never been a documented situation in which sufficiently high dosing with vitamin C has been unable to neutralize or kill any virus against which it has been tested. Even the common cold is a coronavirus.
A “new” opportunistic virus is a not a big surprise. History is full of them says Andrew Saul. Read the clinical guide to vitamin C and vitamin C’s numerous uses and benefits here.
