Miracles From Vitamin C

I keep researching vitamin C in regards to health benefits and YES even miracles. I am still unsettled on exactly what is the BEST form of Vitamin C to take. My understanding is that NONE of them are bad per se and taking almost any form of Vitamin C is better than NOT being on it at all.

If you are going to follow Dr. Linus Pauling's protocol in his Vitamin C regimen for combating heart disease and maintaining clear arteries and overall health, you can consider Ascorbic Acid in powder form as offered by the Vitamin C foundation and Tower labs formulas, or C-salts as recommended by Dr. Weil or Liposomal Vitamin C.

NONE of them are bad choices. The Vitamin C and Tower lab's formulas are more or less complete in that they contain powdered vitamin C, and the amino acids Lysine and Proline along with other nutrients making then somewhat of a complete formula to follow the "Unified Theory" of heart disease and the cure for heart disease. The C-salts will require you to ADD Lysine and Proline, as does the Liposomal vitamin C whether purchased on line or made yourself at home. The article below is very lengthy, however also very informative. Dan

Here is an article I came across that I found very interesting:

The Allan Smith Story, a TV Documentary from New Zealand

Allan Smith, a New Zealand Dairy farmer, contracted Swine Flu while away on vacation in Fiji.  When he returned home, the flu quickly evolved into severe pneumonia which left him in a coma on Life Support in the Intensive Care Unit.  Chest Xrays showed the lungs were completely filled with fluid with an "opaque" appearance called "white out".  After three weeks of this, Allan's doctors asked the family permission to turn off the machines and let him die.  Allan's wife Sonia had a brother with some medical knowledge, so he stepped in and said, "you haven't tried everything, You have got to try high dose IV vitamin C on Allan".  At first, the doctors resisted, saying it was useless. Next, the three sons weighed in with a persuasive argument to try the IV vitamin C, saying there was nothing to lose.

Doctors Agree to Try IV Vitamin C

The Doctors were in unanimous agreement that IV Vitamin C would be useless and a waste of time, and that the patient will certainly die.  However,  one doctor "felt slightly uneasy" with the decision to turn off life support, without first acceding to the family's wishes,  and so they reluctantly agreed to give the IV Vitamin C.  Their plan was to give the IV Vitamin C, show it was useless, and then turn off life support.
Dramatic Recovery
That day, Allan Smith was given 25 grams of IV Vitamin C in the evening and another 25 grams in the morning.  The next day, a CAT scan of the lungs showed improving air flow and a few days later the Chest Xrays showed the lungs were no longer white, indicating air movement. The improvement was dramatic, clear and plain for all to see.  However, the doctors denied it was the Vitamin C, and instead, attributed the improvement to "turning patient into a prone position".

Soon after starting the IV vitamin C, Alan could be taken off ECMO life support, and started breathing on his own.  However, unexpectedly, a different physician consultant came in, took over the case and stopped the IV vitamin C.  Alan Smith's condition promptly deteriorated.  Allan's wife, Sonia,  called a meeting with this new doctor to no avail.  The new doctor rolled his eyes, looked up at the ceiling and uttered, "No More Vitamin C ".  Not giving up so easily, the three brothers again weighed in, and demanding the IV vitamin C for dad.  The three brothers again used their powers of "persuasion", and the new doctors reluctantly gave in, restarting the life saving IV vitamin C, but only at low doses of one gram a day.  The brothers said, "Mucking about with the Vitamin C showed in his fathers health".  "You had to be thick not to see it."

Oral Lyposperic Vitamin C 

Allan's condition continued to improve and was eventually transferred to a hospital closer to home, still breathing with ventilator assistance.  Here, the family had yet another battle with a new doctor who again stopped the IV Vitamin C.  This time. the family brought in a lawyer who sent a warning letter to the hospital threatening legal action.  The hospital was forced to restart the vitamin C, however, allowing only low dosage.  Finally, Allan Smith was able to sit up in bed and take oral liquids.   On their own, the family gave dad 6 grams a day of oral vitamin C.  This was a highly absorbable form called 
Lypo-spheric C from LivOn Labs .  Allan continued to improve and was discharged home from the hospital.  At home, Allan's neighbor John joked with him, and said, "Allan, you owe me the 15 dollars I paid to have my suit dry cleaned for your funeral, and you bugger, you came back."  They laughed together at the joke.
