>FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
>Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, October 26, 2005
>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 bodyâs 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.
> 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.  For most influenza (flu),
>100,000 to 150,000 mg/day.  For Avian (Bird)
>Flu, 150,000 to 300,000 mg/day.
>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.
