Extra Extra! C all about it!! Vitamin C of course!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my vitamin C! Unfortunately, most people don't get an adequate daily amount. (And No, the FDA guidelines for "adequate", really are not.) Especially necessary during the winter months as its immune enhancing properties are invaluable, you should be consuming 3-5,000mgs a day, which isn't that hard to do with the proper supplements. Vitamin C is water-soluble, so your body doesn't store it, like fat-soluble vitamins such as D3. So you need to get it daily.
I personally consume "Cardio-C" by the Vitamin C Foundation as I have found it to be the best that's out there.
Check them out! Link's to the right. I really can't say enough about this VITAL nutrient, JUST GET IT!! =)
VITAMIN C HAS BEEN KNOWN TO CURE OVER 30 MAJOR DISEASES FOR OVER 50 YEARS
If so, why haven't you heard more about it? Why haven't more doctors used Vitamin C as medicine?
Progress takes time, unfortunately. Fresh fruit was known to cure scurvy by 1753, yet governments ignored the fact for nearly 100 years. Countless thousands died in the meantime. The 19th century doctor who first advocated washing one's hands between patients died ignored and in disgrace with the medical profession. Toxic mercury was used as medicine into the twentieth century. And so it has been.
The first physician to aggressively use vitamin C to cure diseases was Frederick R. Klenner, M.D. beginning back in the early 1940's. Dr. Klenner consistently cured chicken pox, measles, mumps, tetanus and polio with huge doses of the vitamin. While vaccines are now available for these illnesses, please remember this was not the case in the 1940's.
The following is a list of the conditions that Dr. Klenner successfully treated with aggressive vitamin C therapy:
Herpes Zoster (shingles)
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
Ruptured Intervertebral Disc
Burns and secondary infections
Heavy Metal Poisoning (Mercury, Lead)
Venomous Bites (insects, snakes)
Complications of Surgery
This seems like an impossible list of vitamin C cures. At this point, you can either dismiss the subject or investigate further. Dr. Klenner chose to investigate. The result? He used massive doses of vitamin C for over forty years of family practice. He wrote dozens of medical papers on the subject. A complete list of them is in the Clinical Guide to the Use of Vitamin C, edited by Lendon H. Smith, M.D., Life Sciences Press, Tacoma, WA (1988).
