2016 will no doubt go down in the history books as the “Year of Zika.”
Every day we seem to hear stories of new cases, and how Big Pharma is racing to produce some new and dangerous vaccine.
But despite all the panic over Zika, there’s one treatment that isn’t being discussed by anyone except a small group of doctors from Puerto Rico.
They were able to take a simple vitamin remedy and use it to treat a woman who had been infected with the virus, curing her in just three days.
And that’s just one example of what we already know this mighty vitamin can do.
As an eAlert reader you know how strongly I feel about the curative powers of high dose IV vitamin C treatments (IVC).
I’ve told you many stories over the years about the cancer-killing ability of IVC. Stories of patients who were told there was nothing more doctors could do for them, but after treatments with IVC have been given a second chance at life.
And yet, despite miraculous results from both laboratory studies and in real life, this amazing treatment is still not getting the attention it deserves.
Now, we’re hearing about how IVC can cure Zika. A group of physicians from the University of Puerto Rico and the Ponce School of Medicine recently published their findings in the journal JOM about how treatment with IVC completely cured a 54-year-old woman infected with the virus.
She had all the classic Zika symptoms — fever, chills, headache and a rash. After ruling out measles, other kinds of viruses and mosquito-borne illnesses, they treated her for three days with IVC.
Her symptoms started going away the first day, and were gone entirely by day three.
In their report, the doctors also told how research has shown that vitamin C can prevent many diseases and infections — especially viral ones — and how it’s also a “nutrient for the immune system.” How using it at the beginning of an infection revs up the body so it can better mount a defense against an invading virus.
The doctors said that because of the positive outcome in this case, and the absence of any side effects, that they “propose IVC should be studied further as a potential treatment for acute viral infections.”
Well, I absolutely hope they can make some waves here, but I don’t think these guys know what they’re up against. Because for years and years doctors, researchers and even patients have been trying to tell the mainstream about the powers of IVC.
Even two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling fought for its acceptance in the mainstream medical world.
But since you can’t patent vitamin C, give it an unpronounceable name and then charge a fortune for it, don’t expect Big Pharma to even consider it. In fact, I’m sure that drugmakers would be thrilled if it just somehow disappeared!
At the beginning of this year I told you about laboratory studies that found IVC can kill off especially tough-to-treat mutated colon cancer cells, and how some doctors are using it in patients with deadly brain and pancreatic cancers.
There’s no doubt that IVC’s time to shine has come.
And perhaps with the Zika name now attached to it, more doctors will be willing to listen.
