Vitamin C – Cure Colds to Cancer

Vitamin C from citrus was introduced a couple of centuries ago as a cure for scurvy rampant among British mariners. But just what is scurvy? Scurvy is actually defined as a deficiency of vitamin C. Its myriad manifestations appear today. It appears that scurvy was not a particular disease, but a condition that led to other diseases.

The difference today is there are many other new names assigned to diseases that are often related to scurvy. This benefits Big Pharma`s bottom line for creating new expensive pharmaceuticals. It`s no surprise that inexpensive Vitamin C`s ability to safely cure maladies from colds to cancer is marginalized by the Medical Mafia.

Some Scurvy Symptoms

Some of the many scurvy symptoms include: Exhaustion, lethargy, sunken eyes, pale complexion, anemia, depression, and weakness. The afflicted person may experience joint and muscle pain, headaches, and nausea as well as fainting or dizziness.

Lung and kidney disease may result from scurvy conditions. Bruising occurs easily, and wounds heal slowly. Internal tissues may bleed as capillaries weaken. Ultimately, jaundice and water retention may occur with decreased urination.

Do any of those symptoms remind you of any other maladies or diseases by a different name? Yet IV mega-dose vitamin C therapy starting at 15 grams is rarely utilized for these symptoms.

Vitamin C Therapy

According to orthomolecular physician Ronald Hunninghake, MD, cancer victims are vitamin C deficient. In other words, they have scurvy. He has worked with orthomolecular cancer pioneer Dr. Hugh Riordan, MD, for over two decades. Their work has been a continuation of Dr. Linus Pauling`s insights into vitamin C for preventing and curing infectious diseases and cancer.

Success with cancer patients using Dr. Riordan`s protocol is not widely publicized. These and other orthomolecular physicians, who rely solely on vitamin and mineral supplementation for curing patients, want to avoid the flack from the medical establishment that exploded around Linus Pauling`s vitamin C revelations years ago.

Besides claiming that vitamin C could cure cancer, Linus Pauling also ruffled the cancer industry`s feathers when he publicly proclaimed that “the war on cancer is largely a fraud”. As the saying goes, you don`t draw flack until you`re over the target!

So perhaps Dr. Hunninghake is a bit guarded when he says mega-dosing vitamin C is a great adjunct for other cancer therapies. Cancer has been cured with mostly IV mega-dose vitamin C therapy during recent decades. Instead, Hunninghake cites the fact that cancer patients are relieved of their scurvy from IV mega-dose vitamin C, thus allowing them to feel better and endure the side effects of conventional cancer protocols.

Despite Hunninhake`s protective diplomacy, Dr. Riordon has demonstrated that Vitamin C in large doses is selectively cytotoxic to cancer cells. When the dosage is high enough, vitamin C shifts from anti-oxidant to oxidant. Normally anaerobic cancer cells perish when exposed to oxygen.

Though largely ignored by mainstream medicine`s blind allegiance to Big Pharma, Vitamin C mega-dosing has proven extremely effective against many infectious diseases. Pathogens are also anaerobic.

Occasional Confirmations from Mainstream Medicine

Perhaps mainstream medicine is beginning to catch on. Dr. Karel Tyml and his colleagues at The University of Western Ontario have discovered that vitamin C can reverse sepsis, a potentially fatal disease with symptoms resembling – scurvy!

Dogs normally produce their own vitamin C. However, our canine companions don’t have enough C to control distemper, which is considered incurable. But mega-dose C has cured distemper and kept dogs from dying or being euthanized.

Increase your risk
of pancreatic cancer by 87%
by drinking this…

Pancreatic cancer is still one of the hardest cancers to cure. Very few doctors know what it takes to battle this disease. So it’s very important to prevent it. And now it looks like there’s a very easy way to do just that.

A new study out of Singapore found that a common beverage increases your risk of pancreatic cancer by 87%. That’s an astounding increase in risk. It means avoiding this one beverage will go a long way toward avoiding this killer disease.

During just one 10-minute shower, your body can absorb more chlorine than if you drank EIGHT GLASSES of tap water.

The beverage? It’s the same one that causes osteoporosis, heart disease, immune deficiency, and diabetes. It’s sugar-laden soft drinks.

These researchers tracked 60,524 participants over 14 years. They found that those who consumed two or more soft drinks a week increased their risk of pancreatic cancer by 87%. Sugar may be to blame. It increases insulin, which fans the flames of cancer.

However, it’s also possible that those who drink a lot of soft drinks also have other aspects of a deficient diet. Nevertheless, I continue to push for zero tolerance with soft drinks. When I see Coca Cola coming out of a mountain spring, I’ll drink it.

Terri and I recently visited the Santa Cruz amusement park. They had a special for unlimited rides for one price. But to get the special deal, you had to present a Pepsi can at the ticket booth. We did, two in fact, one for each of us. Much to the surprise of the ticket agent, both cans were unopened.

Stay away from soft drinks. They’re great for the taste buds — but terrible for your health.

Yours for better health and medical freedom,

A good woman who had to endure two tragedies, the death of her teenage son and her politician husband’s infidelity (and this during the time when her cancer had returned). Many describe her as a very classy lady with tremendous resilience. Sadly, she believed too much in Western cancer treatments, including the ‘benefit’ of mammograms. After many rounds of chemo, the cancer not only returned, but had spread to her bones. And what did her doctors recommend? More chemo.

An interesting read HERE.
