      >VITAMIN C BEATS BIRD FLU AND OTHER VIRUSES, TOO
      >
      >(OMNS) High dose vitamin C is a remarkably safe
      >and effective treatment for viral infections.
      >[1,2] In high doses, vitamin C neutralizes free
      >radicals, helps kill viruses, and strengthens
      >the body’s immune system. Taking supplemental
      >vitamin C routinely helps prevent viral infections.
      >
      >The Avian Flu (or Bird Flu), so often mentioned
      >by newspapers, magazines and other news sources,
      >is a particularly severe form of influenza. It
      >should probably be called Poultry Flu, since
      >almost all of the 150 or so human infections
      >have come from domestic poultry.
      >[3] Interestingly, the symptoms of avian flu
      >include hemorrhages under the skin, and bleeding
      >from the nose and gums. These are also
      >classical symptoms of clinical scurvy, which
      >means a critical vitamin C deficiency is present.
      >
      >This means that vitamin C (ascorbate) is needed
      >to treat it. Severe cases may require 200,000 to
      >300,000 milligrams of vitamin C or more, given
      >intravenously (IV) by a physician. This very
      >high dosing may be needed since the Avian Flu
      >appears to consume vitamin C very rapidly,
      >similar to an acute viral hemorrhagic fever, somewhat like an Ebola infection.
      >
      >What should you do if you think you have a viral
      >infection - any viral infection - coming on and
      >IV vitamin C is not readily available? Nobel
      >laureate Linus Pauling said that as soon as you
      >feel the symptoms of sniffles, a cold or the
      >flu, take oral doses of thousands of milligrams of vitamin C.
      >
      >For best results, take vitamin C in evenly
      >divided doses during the waking hours. Continue
      >taking vitamin C on this schedule until, Pauling
      >says, you have loose stool (just short of
      >diarrhea). After having loosened stool, reduce
      >the vitamin C dosage reduce by about 25 per
      >cent. If you have another loose stool, reduce
      >the vitamin C again, but if the symptoms of the
      >viral infection begin to return, increase the
      >dosage. You will quickly learn how much vitamin
      >C to take; even children can learn to do this.
      >Continue until you are completely well. Vitamin
      >C greatly shortens the severity and duration of viral illnesses.
      >
      >Vitamin C expert Robert Cathcart, M.D.,
      >specifies very high therapeutic doses of vitamin
      >C. For a severe cold: 60,000 to 100,000
      >milligrams/day. [4] For most influenza (flu),
      >100,000 to 150,000 mg/day. [5] For Avian (Bird)
      >Flu, 150,000 to 300,000 mg/day.[6]
      >
      >Remember:
      >
      >Vitamin C replaces antiviral drugs at saturation
      >(bowel tolerance or loose stool) levels.
      >
      >The reason very high doses of a vitamin can cure
      >an illnesses is because a disease-induced
      >deficiency of that vitamin can be a cause of the illness.
      >
      >As for the safety of this approach: 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.
