Begin This Simple Regimen Today VS Coronavirus and All Other Viral Attacks

Vitamin C Protects Against Coronavirus

by Dr. Andrew W. Saul, Editor

(OMNS January 26, 2020) The coronavirus pandemic can be dramatically slowed, or stopped, with the immediate widespread use of high doses of vitamin C. Physicians have demonstrated the powerful antiviral action of vitamin C for decades. There has been a lack of media coverage of this effective and successful approach against viruses in general, and coronavirus in particular.

It is very important to maximize the body’s anti-oxidative capacity and natural immunity to prevent and minimize symptoms when a virus attacks the human body. The host environment is crucial. Preventing is obviously easier than treating severe illness. But treat serious illness seriously. Do not hesitate to seek medical attention. It is not an either-or choice. Vitamin C can be used right along with medicines when they are indicated.

“I have not seen any flu yet that was not cured or markedly ameliorated by massive doses of vitamin C.”
(Robert F. Cathcart, MD)

The physicians of the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service and the International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine urge a nutrient-based method to prevent or minimize symptoms for future viral infection. The following inexpensive supplemental levels are recommended for adults; for children reduce these in proportion to body weight:

  • Vitamin C: 3,000 milligrams (or more) daily, in divided doses.
  • Vitamin D3: 2,000 International Units daily. (Start with 5,000 IU/day for two weeks, then reduce to 2,000)
  • Magnesium: 400 mg daily (in citrate, malate, chelate, or chloride form)
  • Zinc: 20 mg daily
  • Selenium: 100 mcg (micrograms) daily

Vitamin C [1], Vitamin D [2], magnesium [3], zinc [4], and selenium [5] have been shown to strengthen the immune system against viruses.

The basis for using high doses of vitamin C to prevent and combat virus-caused illness may be traced back to vitamin C’s early success against polio, first reported in the late 1940s.[6] Many people are unaware, even surprised, to learn this. Further clinical evidence built up over the decades, leading to an anti-virus protocol published in 1980.[7]

It is important to remember that preventing and treating respiratory infections with large amounts of vitamin C is well established. Those who believe that vitamin C generally has merit, but massive doses are ineffective or somehow harmful, will do well to read the original papers for themselves. To dismiss the work of these doctors simply because they had success so long ago sidesteps a more important question: Why has the benefit of their clinical experience not been presented to the public by responsible governmental authorities, especially in the face of a viral pandemic?

Health Information: Stuff Your Doctor Doesn’t Know, Study or Talk About

Want to be well?

Here some links to reliable information that I have adhered to for 25-30 years.  Long time.  As a result of this good information and me paying attention to it, I have been to the doctor precisely four times in that same time period.

First time – popping a wheelie in the street on my mountain bike in a slightly altered state of consciousness.  Flipped backward, landing in the street in a sitting position and had to crawl back to my back door.  Not a health issue, but one of stupidity.

Second time – Poison ivy eating up my arms from riding that same mountain bike through a stand of poison ivy.  Not a health issue, but one of stupidity.

Third time – an actual physical with blood tests and everything.  Perfect, and in 2010.

Fourth time – broke my toe in Tae Kwon Do and went with wife to see the doctor.  We admired my treatment and she suggested that I get some blood tests done due to my old age.  They were done, eight pages of multiple tests per page, and all came back perfect.  100 percent perfect in every test.  My cholesterol was high in LDL and HDL, but in perfect balance, which is what matters.  I want high LDL and HDL in PERFECT BALANCE because it is good foe me.

Attribute my wonderful blessing of health to Yahuah, and to His directing me to this great information I am giving you today free.  I made the choice many decades ago that I would rather be healthy than wealthy, because wealth cannot buy health.

The coronavirus, if it strikes me, will be treated by me with vitamin c precisely as metered in the article on DoctorYourself.com under the “Immune Response” link.

Corona Virus And Locust Swarms- Both Underway. My Family Defense VS The Chinese Corona Virus

The Chinese corona virus is stronger and faster to spread than is reported in the “responsible” news channels.  I subscribe on youtube (link at bottom) to a British man who works in the Chinese medical system to teach Chinese doctors how to communicate with Western doctors accurately using western medical terms.  He has lived in China and done this work for years, and his wife is a Chinese doctor.

Based on early information, it is believed that only a quarter of infected cases are “severe”, and the dead are mostly – though not exclusively – older people, some of whom have pre-existing conditions. (Since its easy to transmit, and if 25% of infections are “severe”, that’s BAD.- jd) https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-51249208

He has many contacts in the Chinese medical realm, including in Wuhan, the epicenter of this Chinese breakout.  His doctors tell him that the rate of mortality is about 100 percent greater than what is being reported by the Chinese government.  Because this virus spreads so easily, the total dead from it is likely to be quite high.  Estimations are pure guesses, but guesses in the 10’s of millions are pretty good guesses, and that is based on estimations that use state-of-the-are prediction software designed specifically for medical emergencies like this.

There is no known “vaccine” or specific treatment for this virus.  It seems to act rather quickly, but that is my own perception based on scant video evidence.  I did see many dead Chinese laid out on the floor of a Chinese hospital.  That indicates that available space was scarce, which helps me believe that there are more dead than are being reported.  There are huge long lines at hospital entrances, lots of people being carried away in plastic bubbles, and communists managing information.  Doctors themselves are dying and also reporting 2X the death rate that is in the “news”, and in one corona virus related video I watched a man fall flat on his face in the street

What I Am Doing To Prepare and Prevent

  1. Masks – hard to come by because they are being hoarded and sent to China, apparently.  The best mask is the 3M model 8210V.  Look for the N95 rating.  Any respirator with the N95 rating should be about as good as you can get for wearing around your town if the virus pops up locally.
  2. Nutritionthe best defense, for sure.  I don’t eat particularly “nutritions” food.  I do eat more protein than most folks, and supplement strongly.  Primary defense for me and my family is Vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid and iodine.  We will begin taking 3000% of the “RDA” (Recommended Daily Allowance) when the virus is confirmed in Texas, as well as 16mg of Lugols Iodine with he vitamin C.  I will mix the vitamin C powder into some gatorade or kool-aide to sweeten it, and put the 14 drops of iodine in there with it for one big gulp every evening.  I have taken 16mg of iodine daily directly by mouth for years.

Iodine is essential, and you are deficient in it.  We all are.  None remains in the soil to make it into crops any more.  Iodine kills both virus and bacteria, and iodine is stored in every cell of the human body.  But we don’t have any.  Since iodine kills bad stuff and is used throughout the body, having it circulating is good for me.

Ascorbic Acid VS Cancer 

The ascorbic acid is similar to iodine in its health effect for me.  It kills bad things.  A month ago a cancer growth on my face, which had been developing for about three years, doubled in size in about 14 days.  Then it continued to expand and developed a hard shell.  Concerned that I had a basal cell melanoma, and sure that it was some kind of skin cancer, I made a paste of ascorbic acid by placing a tablespoon of the powder in a small container and adding about a teaspoon of water.  You know, a thick, grainy paste.

The powder won’t dissolve very much until it saturates the waters ability to absorb more of it, so you have a gritty paste which I applied onto that cancer three times per day and left it on there.  It burned inside my skin like very thin, fine needles of fire which I thought was very interesting.  After a week, no more burning so I decided that the C had done its job and ripped off the cancerous growth.

It bled more than I expected, so I put some ointment on it and covered it with a band-aid for a couple of days.

When I removed the band-aid – presto – not a mark was on my face, and I mean zero skin defect.  Stunning.  So Vitamin C rocks.  I have a three pound jug of NOW brand powder in my cabinet, which I buy from Amazon.

3.  Wash your hands.  A lot.  Although this Chinese virus is apparently very easy to contract from the air, including via the eyes, soap and water are still your best defense against infection.  Don’t pass a faucet without lathering up.  Before you pee in the morning, wash your hands.  Then wash them again.  Wash them several times during the day even if you don’t leave the house, because other people will come in, and that “breaks the seal”, so to speak.  Don’t touch your face, your mouth (located on your face) or your eyes (also located on your face).  Don’t dig around in your nose looking for loose change.

Wash your hands. 

So, wash you hands with soap.  Find some N95-class face masks and put them in a cabinet in your home.  Load up on Vitamin C beginning now and use it daily.  Load your body with Lugols iodine, beginning now.  If you have thyroid issues, iodine can effect that because your thyroid makes iodine.  Use your own judgement.  I am not a doctor but I do manage my health and my recent (60 days ago?) eight page in length blood test series shows perfect measures in every single test, bar none.  I am quite sure that I am healthier than any doctor any of us knows.  Not bragging.  My first son was born with the deadly kind of peanut allergy, and that got me on the quest for knowledge.  My good health is the byproduct of my love for him.

Closing, links provided below.  I read a posting that was entirely in Chinese and on a Chinese site.  It was by the original SARS researcher who went to Wuhan to look into this new virus.  In spite of his training and skill, he caught the virus.  He survived it, as most will.  But it spreads so easily that our odds of catching it are higher than normal.  Wash your hands with soap.  Don’t touch your face.

Note: as this virus spreads, I expect it to mutate further.  What “news” omits is that there is a military-grade biological research facility in the middle of Wuhan, too.  That same facility was responsible for the release of SARS several years ago.  Its a leaky facility (Lime disease in the USA came off Plum Island -US Military biological research facility)

Get good sleep.  Thats when your immune system works most efficiently.  Sleep.  Get as much as you can when the the Xi-Ping Flu pops up within 100 miles/km of you.  And wash your hands then your face before you go to bed. Use soap.
