I found this story on the net > thought you may be interested.

A woman suffering with severe and debilitating Lyme disease had been seen by many doctors and had not responded to several courses of antibiotics. Her health was rapidly failing and her husband called Dr. L.

The woman was immediately infused with 100 grams of Vitamin C and within just two hours of treatment here husband reported that she looked 50 to 60 percent better. Over the next two days she received five more 50 gram infusions of Vitamin C, and by hour 72 she was completely well. That was nearly two years ago. She has since suffered no relapses, nor is there any indication of a chronic infection.

Wow! I just saw a TV show on Valeria about a women who had cancerous Tumors and after a battle with chemo she stopped all chemo and did high doses of Vitamin C intravenously and was totally cured. Over time of course, but still! wow!

I did 30 grams of Vitamin C by IV twice a week for a year. I felt better, not cured ...but better. I dont see how it could "cure" her but it does help with symptoms.    D

I think Vitamin C kept everything at bay for me until I stopped taking it...then I crashed.

There is a Lyme treatment protocol in which one takes high doses of both salt and vitamin C. Dr. Linus Pauling pioneered the use of high dose IV vitamin C for cancer treatment, but he used Sodium Ascorbate instead of Ascorbic Acid...

Also, Vitamin C does help connective tissue (collagen, etc.), bones, and other body tissues, and also supports the immune system. Vitamin C also reduces inflammation and fights viral infections.

And most people in the USA do not get much vitamin C in their diet because it is destroyed when foods are cooked. The RDA is pitifully low for vitamin C (60mg/day - barely enough to prevent scurvy), and exposure to environmental toxins, cigarette smoke, etc., can deplete this vitamin quickly. The body does not make its own vitamin C, so we must obtain it from food sources.
