(NaturalNews) There is a double standard in Western medicine when it comes to assessing the efficacy of vitamins compared to pharmaceutical drugs. While medical science recognizes that dose levels affect how well a drug works, the same principle is not considered valid for vitamins. As a result, 75 years of physician reports and clinical studies about the success of high-dose vitamin C therapy has been largely ignored.
When it comes to the effectiveness of simple vitamins and minerals at curing diseases, many ill-informed doctors still scoff at the idea, citing studies that allegedly verify that vitamins are ineffective. Most studies conducted on vitamins, however, either use really low doses or synthetic forms which negate any positive results.
High-dose vitamin C therapy, the kind that uses upwards of 1,000 times the U.S. Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) or Daily Reference Intake (DRI), has been shown in legitimate clinical studies to cure all sorts of illnesses.
Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi first isolated ascorbic acid (vitamin C) back in the late 1800s and, almost immediately, medical professionals realized that high doses of the vitamin were effective in treating a host of diseases.
In 1935, Dr. Jungeblut, then professor of bacteriology at Columbia University, published vitamin C's effectiveness at preventing and treating polio and inactivating the diphtheria toxin. He later found that the vitamin C ascorbates inactivated tetanus as well.
In the 1940s, Dr. Frederick Klenner, a specialist in chest diseases, successfully cured 41 cases of viral pneumonia using high doses of vitamin C. He published his extensive findings in the February 1948 issue of the Journal of Southern Medicine and Surgery. Dr. Klenner ended up publishing 28 articles in various scientific publications.
Other findings included vitamin C as a cure for kidney stones, cardiovascular disease, hepatitis, AIDS, and even cancer. By administering tens of thousands of milligrams of vitamin C a day, the ability of these diseases to run their course is disabled.
Though the body can only assimilate a certain amount of vitamin C at a time when taken orally, high-dose, time-released oral vitamin C supplementation is a great way of maintaining health and preventing disease. When it comes to combatting serious diseases, intravenous vitamin C therapy is the most effective method because the body is able to more effectively assimilate very high doses of the vitamin this way.
Though generally rejected by most mainstream oncologists, intravenous vitamin C treatments for cancer have proven to be highly effective at eradicating the disease.
