Physicians Weekly: “High-Dose IV Vitamin C on ARDS by COVID-19: A Possible Low-Cost Ally With a Wide Margin of Safety”

See all COVID-19 posts and all Vitamin C posts.

Best Vitamin C? It might be wise at the first sign of COVID-19 to use as much true Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C as your bowels will tolerate.

ARDS = Acute respiratory distress syndrome

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) occurs when fluid builds up in the tiny, elastic air sacs (alveoli) in your lungs. The fluid keeps your lungs from filling with enough air, which means less oxygen reaches your bloodstream. This deprives your organs of the oxygen they need to function.

ARDS typically occurs in people who are already critically ill or who have significant injuries. Severe shortness of breath — the main symptom of ARDS — usually develops within a few hours to a few days after the precipitating injury or infection.

Many people who develop ARDS don't survive. The risk of death increases with age and severity of illness. Of the people who do survive ARDS, some recover completely while others experience lasting damage to their lungs.

Physicians Weekly: “High-Dose IV Vitamin C on ARDS by COVID-19: A Possible Low-Cost Ally With a Wide Margin of Safety”

Note “intravenous Vitamin C” reference, a topic I discuss in Vitamin C: a cure for lethal viral infections including Poliomyelitis, and could it cure COVID-19? The Groundbreaking Work of Doctor F.R. Klenner and How It was Ignored.

Intravenous vitamin C has been the object of numerous studies regarding its function as adjuvant therapy on critical patients’ care, included ARDS of diverse etiology. In the context of a coronavirus pandemic, with an elevated morbimortality and pressure over the sanitary system, it is of vital importance to use every available resource to improve patients’ outcomes in an accessible and safe way. In this article, I briefly analyze the evidence around the use of vitamin C in the critical patient and its potential benefits on admission time, intubation time and mortality on patients affected by ARDS.

...Humans are one of the few vertebrates that can’t synthesize vitamin C, therefore it is considered to be an essential nutrient. It’s estimated that 7% of the general population is deficient in vitamin C, but this percentage increases to 47% in admitted patients...

...Therapeutic effects are achieved with plasmatic levels in the range of 20-49 mmol/L (100 times higher than those achieved by oral intake) only possible with intravenous infusion.

...Regarding the evidence around vitamin C’s mechanisms of action, certain preclinical findings might explain the effects observed on respiratory distress. Vitamin C down-regulates inflammatory genes and inhibits the cytokine storm responsible for the activation of pulmonary neutrophils, therefore protecting alveolar capillaries from inflammatory damage. In addition to this, it enhances alveolary fluid clearance by increasing the water transporter channel expression.

In regards to its safety, most studies report no adverse effects on large doses of vitamin C. On rare occasions, the following have been described: Hypersensitivity, oxalate urolithiasis, iron overload in haemochromatosis and anaemia among others, most of them with a prevalence less than 1%. It has also been described the inaccuracy of bedside glucometry when using vitamin C and it is advised to corroborate findings with laboratory results.

We live in times of incalculable need. Worldwide medical supplies are in shortage, costs threat to crush even the wealthiest of health care systems, and above all the wellbeing of millions of humans is at risk. Treatment of severe ARDS from COVID-19 is an ongoing challenge and a specific treatment could be months ahead. The evidence around vitamin C is scarce but promising. There probably never was and never will be a better time than the current to explore and make use of every possible tool that could allow us to improve patients’ prognosis and expand the body of evidence for the benefit of all.

Kudos to the doctor who wrote this! But the risks are far smaller than virtually all prescription drugs, so the excessive caution is just ridiculous. When proper risk assessment is done, it goes beyond idiotic to not to move aggressively to intravenous Vitamin C for impacted patients.

AWESOME to see at least some doctors saying that nutrition may be a factor in mitigating COVID-19—which of course it is—nutrition being the most imporant factor of all fir a strong immune system and that starts by avoiding all nutritional deficiencies.

The reason that admitted patients are deficient in Vitamin C is that Vitamin C is used by the body to combat viruses and bacterio and their toxins. Very high dose intravenous Vitamin C has been proven to CURE severe viral illnesses in as little as 4 days. But this fact is little known, not in the accepted medical textbooks and ignored by the allopathic (traditional ) medical establishment. Studies showing it doesn’t work are awesomely flawed in failing to use the protocols of F. R. Klenner and therefore erroneously “prove” that it does not work.

WHY are we letting patients go acute when multiple nutritional deficiencies can be addressed for the entire population at a cost per person far less than 0.1% of the cost of a hospitalization? Deficiencies of Vitamin D deficiency, magnesium deficiency are tightly linked to immune system function. And why is intravenous Vitamin C not a top worldwide health priority? Maybe the same reason that the allopathic medical establishment ignores magnesium deficiency as a driver of the suffering and death of tens of millions—money and arrogance. Word is getting out but very slowly because few doctors dare to do anything but follow dogmatic medical practice—a fundamentally unethical approach to human health.
