Making the Case for Eliminating the Flu with Lypo C

In his book Curing the Incurable – Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases and Toxins, Dr. Thomas Levy explores the theory of “dosing” with Vitamin C to treat viral infections such as influenza and pneumonia. His second chapter gives accounts from (mostly) Frederick R. Kenner, a physician who documented the use of ascorbic acid to treat viral infections in his South Carolina practice in the late 1940s and beyond.

Kenner used an educated guess in treating viral pneumonia when a patient refused to be transported to a hospital for oxygen therapy. In order to help the patient breath better, he decided that Vitamin C may help increase the oxygen delivery in the body. So, he gave the patient 2,000 mg of ascorbic acid. Within half an hour, the patient’s condition had improved. Six hours later, the patient was eating and continuing to improve. Within 36 hours, the patient was on the mend. Kenner continued the therapy for three days.

According to the book, this is just one of many cases where pneumonia was treated with high doses of Vitamin C and healing occurred within a few days. The doses were delivered either intravenously or through an injection. Another note that relates to the flu virus is that in several cases the viral pneumonia was a result of an existing flu infection. Imagine the impact early Vitamin C treatment could have made for these patients.

Today, it’s not necessary to receive intravenous ascorbic acid or a shot to get the same results Keller did in potentially eliminating or preventing the flu virus. Lypospheric C allows patients to experience the benefits of high doses of Vitamin C without the needles. Because the abscorbic acid is suspended in liposomes (bubbles), it allows you to realize the benefits of the high level dose without the gastric discomfort often associated with oral Vitamin C therapy.

The dosing depends on catching the virus symptoms early to be most effective. The recommended dose for fighting the sometimes life-threatening influenza virus is 1 gram or more per hour at the onset of symptoms. Coupling this treatment with rest and extra fluids gives you a much higher chance in avoiding the flu and its resulting infections (sinus infection or even pneumonia). You should always consult a doctor if your symptoms worsen or your fever reaches 105 degrees Fahrenheit.

We recommend the Liv On Labs brand of Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C as the source of Vitamin C used in your flu treatment plan. Visit our store now to stock up before the flu season settles in.

Eliminate the Mouth Breathing This Fall with Liposomal Vitamin C


fluOctober is the beginning of the big push to get a flu shot and stock up on hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes. It’s also the beginning of mouth breathing. The common cold and influenza can mean clogged nasal passages and a dry mouth.

If you’ve ever had a cold or the flu, you know how miserable it can be to breathe through your mouth, especially at night. A stuffy nose is often the first sign of these infections and the perfect time to attack the virus with vitamin C.

Is Vitamin C Therapy Dangerous?

As you’ve seen on our blog, the doses of Vitamin C required for maximum benefit are well beyond the daily recommended values. A healthy male nonsmoker’s recommended daily allowance (RDA) is 90 milligrams; a healthy female nonsmoker’s RDA is 75. This number increases for smokers and pregnant/nursing females. See all RDAs here.

So, is it safe to take as much as 1,000 milligrams every six hours? Let’s look to some science for the answer. According to Dr. Thomas Levy’s book, Curing the Incurable: Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases and Toxins, ascorbic acid is “one of the safest and least toxic therapies that can be administered to a patient on a regular basis.

Dr. Robert F. Cathcart, III, who is known for his work with treating over 20,000 patients with Vitamin C therapies, says that doses ranging from 4,000 mg to over 200,000 mg in a 24-hour period resulted in a “remarkable lack of systemic difficulties.” Some of the mild side effects Cathcart noted include:

  • Gas, diarrhea or acid stomach (mostly in well patients)
  • Patients who “swished the Vitamin C in their mouths before swallowing” reported some tooth enamel loss
  • In a few cases out of thousands, patients developed a slight rash that cleared on its own.

Common Vitamin C Myths Debunked

Myth: Vitamin C causes kidney stones.

Fact: A study that followed more than 85,000 women for 14 years reported no statistical association with Vitamin C and increased kidney stone development.  In another study, men were found to have a 28% reduction in kidney stones for every 1 milligram of Vitamin C in their blood stream.

Myth: Vitamin C causes cancer.

Fact: On the contrary, Vitamin C helps cancer patient regain strength and well-being. The paper that led to this myth called Vitamin C “ineffective in preventing cancer.” More recent research argues that increased doses of ascorbic acid supplements help improve lifespan.

Myth: Vitamin C should not be taken by transplant patients due to fears of organ rejection

Fact: Vitamin C can help transplant patients avoid a serious complication that can lead to eventual rejection caused by transplant coronary arteriosclerosis. One study found that a daily regimen of just 500 mg and 400 mg Vitamins C and E, respectively reduces this common side effect for transplant patients (Levy 405).
