C is for cure-all

Lynne McTaggart

In 1948, just three years after the end of the Second World War, an earlier pandemic than Covid gripped America. Tens of thousands of people were struck down by the polio virus, and with no cure in sight and a vaccine still to be developed, thousands died. Those who survived were often left crippled—just as America’s then president Franklin D. Roosevelt had been.

Seven years earlier, a young doctor named Frederick Klenner, a general practitioner in Reidsville, North Carolina, had begun experimenting with a cure for polio. Inspired by the work of American bacteriologist Claus Jungeblut, Klenner began experimenting with giving patients heroic doses of intravenous vitamin C.

On June 10, 1949, a year after the polio epidemic was at its height, Klenner presented a summary of his work to the annual conference of the American Medical Association (AMA), held that year in Atlantic City, New Jersey. He claimed to have treated 60 infants and children with his protocol and cured every last one.

As he announced to the incredulous audience of doctors: “In the past seven years, virus infections have been treated and cured in a period of 72 hours by the employment of massive frequent injections of ascorbic acid, or vitamin C. I believe that if vitamin C in these massive doses—6,000 to 20,000 mg in a twenty-four hour period—is given to these patients with poliomyelitis, none will be paralyzed and there will be no further maiming or epidemics of poliomyelitis.”

Klenner’s talk was greeted by a polite silence. Here was the claim by a respected practitioner that he’d found a simple cure for the greatest scourge of the time, and not one doctor raised a hand to ask a question. One possible reason is that two virologists, Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin, were both in the audience and both were in the midst of work on a polio vaccine.

Eight years later, in 1957, when the polio epidemic was already largely over, Salk released his injectable vaccine. Five years after that, Sabin licensed his oral vaccine. Both took the credit for ending an epidemic that had largely run its course, eight and 13 years after Klenner had found and successfully tested a simple, effective and inexpensive solution.

The problem was simply that it was not a drug. Vitamin C works by activating a particular enzyme called myeloperoxidase in white blood cells, which produce hydrogen peroxide. This in turn helps to create hydroxy, a powerful free radical that kills viruses and bacteria.

Undaunted by the medical community’s indifference, Klenner went on to experiment with using giant intravenous doses of vitamin C to treat a host of bacterial and viral diseases. He published his successes with a range of diseases, both viral and nonviral, including diphtheria, malaria, tetanus, tuberculosis and typhoid fever. Other doctors showed that vitamin C could even cure shingles by eradicating its cause, the herpes virus.

But vitamin C is not simply effective on bugs, as cardiologist Dr Thomas Levy discovered to his amazement. “I was awestruck as I witnessed an event that forever changed the direction of my life and the way in which I would practice medicine,” writes Levy in his book Primal Panacea (MedFox Publishing).

“That day I watched a very ill patient with multiple sclerosis rapidly display a striking clinical improvement that just was not supposed to happen. . . . The patient’s change was so striking and occurred so rapidly that it radically altered my understanding of physiology, disease, and medicine.”

In 1993, Levy had been visiting the offices of noted dentist Dr Hal Huggins, a noted dentist who believed that many illnesses started with the state of a patient’s teeth. Huggins challenged many standard dentistry practices by treating the entire patient with diet, nutrition, supplements and general lifestyle recommendations. He was especially expert in removing traditional dental toxins, such as mercury fillings and infected teeth.

On that day a woman arrived, very ill and listless, in a wheelchair, a victim of an advanced case of MS. Levy soon learned that she had numerous teeth missing, some dental implants and root canal–treated teeth. That day she underwent several hours of dental surgery to pull certain teeth and clean infected holes in the jaw, followed by intravenous vitamin C.

“Almost immediately after the end of her dental surgery, she began smiling, joking a bit, proclaiming her energy was greatly improved, and even declaring she wanted to go ‘out on the town’ that night with her caregiver and try to eat a steak with the few remaining good teeth she had on the left side of her mouth,” writes Levy.

Dr Levy expressed his amazement at her extraordinary turnaround to Dr Huggins, who simply pointed to the empty vitamin C IV bag.

After witnessing the woman’s rapid progress, Levy resolved to study this miracle vitamin further. Since that time he has made it his life’s work to research the ability of large doses of vitamin C to cure all manner of illnesses, from viruses to cancer and even his own specialty, heart disease.

In our forthcoming issue of WDDTY in October we offer a roundup of Dr Levy’s findings and personal clinical experience showing that clogged arteries, high blood pressure and other heart conditions don’t, in many cases, require drugs or surgery, but just the simplest of solutions: a vitamin pill.

  1. Excellent information! With Dr. Tom Cowan and Dr. Andrew Kaufman's work concerning the lack of there ever being any isolated virus ever produced in a lab, ever, as verified by the CDC numerous times, which has led to the theory that virus causing any illness, is in actuality, "made-up" science and only produced in computer imaging. Even though viruses may exist, from my research and understanding, they have never actually been isolated or shown to be the cause of an illness.
    May I add that Polio was actually a result of DDT poisoning.

    1. You're spot-on Nancy. Much like the myth of AIDS being caused by HIV. Never been isolated and not contagious. It's a life-style disease where the anti-virals kill a lot of the patients if they don't succumb to whatever ails them. Modern medicine is a sham and a scam.

  2. Impressive. I've heard of Vitamin C intravenously helping people. However this is amazing that it helps so many different illnesses. Is there a practicing doctor that you can suggest?

  3. It's important to remember the outstanding scientist Dr Linus Pauling: rated the 16th most important scientist in history, as well as one of two people to be awarded Nobel Prizes in different fields, and the only person to have won two unshared Nobel Prizes. He was one of the founders of the fields of quantum chemistry and considered the father of molecular biology. He has many awards and papers to his name.

    He demonstrated that high doses of intravenous Vitamin C could cure cancer effectively, as well as other diseases.

    Of course, this made him a target in the mainstream medical community and essentially blackballed and ridiculed as a quack, despite his stellar reputation and history.

    Even though follow-up studies failed to use his methodology, they declared Vit C to be no more effective than a placebo.

    Pauling denounced the conclusions of these studies and handling of the final study as "fraud and deliberate misrepresentation", and criticized the studies for using oral, rather than intravenous vitamin C. But today his opponents' perspective has official sanction.

    Up until now!

    1. Erin: Appreciate the historical coverage for Linus Pauling. I was fortunate to meet him long ago.

  4. This is a good article on the value of Vitamin C used intravenously. It is unfortunate that some comments by previous posters detract from the good science out there by scientists who researched Vitamin C. Based on the best science, viruses do exist. They were postulated to exist before the invention of the Electron Microscope in 1939. After that the electron microscope showed the existence of viruses. And there are deadly viruses out there that not only attack humans, but many species of animals and plant life as well. Polio was caused by a viruses. It existed long before DDT was formulated in the 1940's. You can read more about viruses here: Fact check: Viruses harmful to humans are proven to exist https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-factcheck-harmful-viruses/fact-check-viruses-harmful-to-humans-are-proven-to-exist-idUSKBN23335V. I am sure many victims of HIV would be outraged by the commenter saying it is not contagious, especially young children who were infected from blood transfusions, or women who contracted HIV and their unborn child because they were pregnant. People commenting would do well to do better research and avoid fake news sites that are not helping anyone.

    1. To further explain origins of DDT. It was first invented in 1874 but its insecticide properties were not recognized until 1939-1940. It was used to help stop a typhus epidemics during World War II and they used it to control malaria -- all outside the USA. YOu can learn more here: https://www.epa.gov/archive/epa/aboutepa/ddt-regulatory-history-brief-survey-1975.html. It is interesting to note that before DDT's use, polio was a known crippling disease and afflicted Franklin Roosevelt in 1921. It was know to afflict children in early 1900's as well. DDT did not cause polio as polio existed before DDT's introduction into the USA as an insecticide.

  5. Thank you, Lynne. Our 'power of eight group' reduced to the half, is still meeting weekly.
    Finally there is no matter at all, but thought energy that transcends the distance in between in no time at all, when the same frequency is used.
    When I was 13 years old, I learned, that medical doctors know a lot about diseases, but very little about real Health, when I was healed through sunshine, homeopathy and grape juice. Later helped to a stronger system with Kneipp treatments.

  6. Wow Thanks for this write-up i find it hard to uncover great related information out there when it comes to this topic thank for the write-up website
