One doctor Uses Vitamin C.

Colds and flu are a familiar part of the winter landscape.  How many people get sick at school, or at places of business?

Influenza, or flu, is a respiratory illness that is caused by a virus. Flu is highly contagious and is usually spread by the coughs and sneezes of a person who is infected.

Keywords: vitamin C, doctor uses vitamin C, pneumonia, large doses of vitamin C


LOS ANGELES, CA - The question is, how do you get better?  For example, flu is a virus and antibiotics are not efficient against viruses.  Generally, people just suffer it through. Sometimes the runny nose lasts all winter.

Dr. Andrew Saul found himself with a case of pneumonia.  He went to a fellow practitioner to see what could be done and found that there was really nothing that could be done but suffer it out.  Dr. Saul decided to use large doses of vitamin C to see if it would help. He also then recommended vitamin C to be used in the case of a sick child.  Both stories are in the video below. 

One thing that is alluded to in the video is the fact that massive doses of vitamin C can cause loose bowels or digestive disturbances.  He did not explain exactly what form of vitamin C was used, as there are different kinds of vitamin C supplements, or how these problems were overcome, but he does mention those issues in the video.

It is helpful to have a doctor whom you can talk to about vitamins, minerals, and herbs, and who also understands the power of healthy, organic food.  Hippocrates, considered by some to be the father of medicine, said, 'Let food by thy medicine.'  The problem today is that much food is tainted with pesticides and chemicals, and also some of it is genetically modified, known as GMO.  Organic produce is very good, but it is expensive.  Sometimes you can find it cheaper at a local farmers' market.

Many fruits and vegetables are high in Vitamin C.


While we are on the topic of fruits and vegetables and vitamin C, a good idea for obtaining fruits and vegetables that contain vitamin C is to have your own organic garden, or grow things in small containers.  Summer is coming, it is a good time to think about planning a garden when spring comes.

Meanwhile, think about what Dr. Andrew Saul is talking about, and have discussions with your own doctor, or maybe send him this video.  As Dr. Saul said, the vitamin C supplements were useful, but you need to proceed with caution and have discussions with your doctor or health care provider.
