I love healing therapies that are safe, non-toxic and have amazing benefits to the human body. Vitamin C is one of those substances.
Prevention is of course, always better than cure – but if for whatever reason someone’s lifestyle has led to a serious problem such as atherosclerosis, then orthomolecular remedies such as IV Vitamin C are true live-savers that can be effective very quickly. IV Vitamin C can be done easily and inexpensively, but in Australia there are very few doctors who are familiar enough with it to prescribe it.
Phillip Day wrote a great article about it “The Big Deal About Vitamin C“:
“Dr Linus Pauling, known as the ‘Father of Vitamin C’ and twice awarded the Nobel Prize, declared that daily intakes of vitamin C aid anti-cancer activity and assist in repairing damaged arteries and removing arterial plaque (atherosclerosis). Pauling was largely derided for making these declarations (he lived to be 94!) but today, large doses of vitamin C complex are used by many doctors to great effect who believe Pauling was right and that the popular nutrient is indispensable to the body in its fight to regain or maintain health.
An associate of Pauling’s, Dr Matthias Rath, writes: “Animals don’t get heart attacks because they produce vitamin C in their bodies, which protects their blood vessel walls. In humans, unable to produce vitamin C (a condition known as hypoascorbemia), dietary vitamin deficiency weakens these walls. Cardiovascular disease is an early form of scurvy. Clinical studies document that optimum daily intakes of vitamins and other essential nutrients halt and reverse coronary heart disease naturally.
The single most important difference between the metabolism of human beings and most other living species is the dramatic difference in the body pool of vitamin C. The body reservoir of vitamin C in people is on average 10 to 100 times lower than the vitamin C levels in animals.”
