Fight the Flu with Vitamin C

It’s all over the news papers – People are dying of flu – get your flu shot! Is this really the answer to flu? There is a much better way – giving your body the nutrients it need to fight off infections such as the flu. To tell the truth, when your body is fighting an infection of any kind it revs up it’s use of many nutrients, especially vitamin C. Most animals can make their own vitamin C, so they have a ready supply to fight off most things. Humans can’t, so we must consume vitamin C in our food. Our body’s use of vitamin C increases greatly when we’re fighting infections – 5,000 mg and more daily.  Such large amounts are impossible to get from food, so high quality supplements are in order. There are links on my website to more information about vitamin C and sources, including Curing the Incurable: Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, & Toxins by Thomas E. Levy, M.D., J.D., the book that alerted me to this powerful therapy.

In spite of the efficacy of high dose vitamin C, conventional medicine has been very resistant to accepting this therapy, mainly because no drug company is willing to fund proper research. (It would cut greatly into their profits to find a low cost effective substitute for their drugs!) There is a link on my website to a powerful little video, called Living Proof, about the battle a family had with the doctors and hospital to use vitamin C on the patient who was on death’s door, but was finally completely healed with vitamin C.

So there is really no need to fear the flu or any serious illness. The secret is frequent large doses of vitamin C throughout the day to bowel tolerance, to maintain high levels in the blood while fighting an infection. And don’t wait until you are seriously ill – the sooner you start, the better. To learn more, check some of the links on my website or find ‘Vitamin C’ on my site map. One day your life may depend on this knowledge.
