      >ASTHMA TREATMENT THAT WORKS
      >
      >(OMNS) People with severe asthma have low blood concentrations of
      >ascorbate (vitamin C), particularly men [1] and children [2].
      >
      >Effective asthma treatment is readily available with cheap, safe and
      >convenient vitamin C. The only requirement is to take enough vitamin C
      >to be effective. Typical dietary quantities and low supplemental doses do
      >not work. Robert F. Cathcart III, M.D., who has treated many asthma
      >sufferers, says “Asthma is most often relieved by bowel tolerance doses
      >of ascorbate (vitamin C). A child regularly having asthmatic attacks
      >following exercise is usually relieved of these attacks by large doses of
      >ascorbate. So far all of my patients having asthmatic attacks associated
      >with the onset of viral diseases have been ameliorated by this treatment.”[3]
      >
      >If you want asthma relief, consider trying this:
      >
      >Go to a discount store and buy a large bottle of 1,000 mg vitamin C
      >tablets. The cost should be less than $15.
      >
      >Beginning when you awake in the morning, take 1,000 to 2,000 mg of vitamin
      >C every 30 minutes and continue doing so until you have a single episode
      >of loose stool (not quite diarrhea). If you haven’t had loose stool
      >after 15 hours on this dosage, increase the vitamin C to 3000 mg every 30
      >minutes.
      >
      >After you have a loose bowel movement, reduce the dosage to 2,000 mg of
      >vitamin C every hour. You will quickly find the dosage that is right for
      >you. Adjust the dosage of vitamin C downward to stay below the dosage
      >that will cause loose stool and adjust it upward to relieve asthma
      >symptoms. The usual maintenance dosage to remain asthma-free is 15,000 to
      >50,000 mg of vitamin C per day taken in eight equally divided doses.
      >
      >People with asthma should also avoid tobacco smoke, minimize stress in
      >their lives and minimize their consumption of junk foods, meat and dairy
      >products.
      >
      >Remember:
      >Vitamin C replaces antibiotics, antihistamines, antipyretics, antitoxics,
      >and antiviral drugs at saturation (bowel tolerance) levels. It reduces
      >inflammation.
      >
      >A vitamin can act as a drug, but a drug can never act as a vitamin.
      >
      >The reason one nutrient can cure so many different illnesses is because a
      >deficiency of one nutrient can cause many different illnesses.
      >
      >There is not even one death per year from vitamins. Pharmaceutical drugs,
      >properly prescribed and taken as directed, kill over 100,000 Americans
      >annually. Hospital errors kill still more. Unlike drugs, with vitamins,
      >the range of safe dosages is extraordinarily large.
      >
      >What is Orthomolecular Medicine?
      >
      >Linus Pauling defined orthomolecular medicine as "the treatment of disease
      >by the provision of the optimum molecular environment, especially the
      >optimum concentrations of substances normally present in the human body."
      >Orthomolecular medicine uses safe, effective nutritional therapy to fight
      >illness. For more information: http://www.orthomolecular.org
