Plenty of folks are opposed to vaccines these days. Well what if vitamin C is actually a better alternative?
That’s exactly the conclusion Dr. Frederick Klenner drew from his work.
According to Dr. Klenner, vitamin C can cure everything from polio to multiple sclerosis to reactions from venomous snake bites. He’s documented all sorts of stories that fly in the face of conventional medicine.
According to his research, it appears vitamin C acts as an anti-infective agent and reducing agent, as well as an anti-clotting agent, an oxidizing agent, and an antihistamine.
While others before him had theorized that vitamin C could play a role in lessening the effects of polio, it was Dr. Klenner who first gave polio patients doses equivalent to tens of thousands of milligrams of vitamin C – every day.
Klenner recommended giving the vitamin C dosage intravenously, but noted that the intramuscular route could also be satisfactory. He administered at least 350 mg per kg of body weight – a dosage equivalent to 25,000 to 30,000 mg for an adult. It’s important that vitamin C be taken either intravenously or intramuscularly, though, as only so much vitamin C taken orally can be absorbed – the rest just gets peed right back out (as do other water-soluble vitamins taken in excess).
He likewise used massive doses of vitamin C to treat shingles, pneumonia, hepatitis, measles, mumps, diptheria and the flu, among many others.
In a lifetime of work, Dr. Klenner voiced his recommendation that any person, whether combating an illness or not, should not rely on the small recommended dosage for vitamin C. Such levels are only useful in warding off acute scurvy; they do not address a chronic vitamin C deficiency made worse by stress, environmental impurities and infectious organisms.
In addition to treating disease, Dr. Klenner stood by his recommended daily preventive doses of 10,000 to 15,000 mg/day. For parents with children, he recommended dosages of their age in vitamin C grams, where 1 year equals 1,000 mg.
