3-6 grams a day would be a good loading dose, but little excessive daily don't you think, you're just looking to boost your immune system, that's it. Hope you're aware Vitamin C can cause side effects in excessive amounts, look up the side effects on the internet... Vitamins can build up in your body which could cause more symptoms.
I can't tell you how many vitamins and herbs I've tried over the years, looking to help with Lyme but ended up causing more irritable symptoms Vitamins and herbs have their place for treating pain longterm and boosting your immune sytem and improve health in "beginning treatment stages" of lyme. But if you've been treating for a few years now, already at 60-70% health all you're doing is feeding the cash cow whomever you're buying these excessive amounts of vitamin C from online. Vitamin C would be great when your T-cells are low after doing the CD57 test.
Vitamin D and Vitamin C are a must daily, at a reasonable low maintenance dosage, maybe even doing it every other day or every 2-3 days, but it's not going to cure you, hope you're aware of that WalkingbyFaith. I know a lot of naturopaths will influence you into taking large amounts, claiming "it'll help treat lyme" etc, etc....
As for the IV form, I'm just repeating what I've read in recent studies, I would not know how many grams to take. It's been shown to be more beneficial intravenously because of penetration and absorption, as has IV antbiotics due to that reason... But both do two different things, one targets bacteria, the other one boosts immune system and overall health. I know others will tell you it kills bacteria kills cancer cells etc... Without a doubt it does, but at a large scale?
IV vitamin C would be great for beginning stages of lyme, years afterwards, all the outrageous claims naturopaths make. You need to research persister cells and biofilms from Dr. Sapi's work and the new John Hopkins study, this is what's keeping Lyme patients sick. I wish a patient could just take Vitamin C and be cured of all type of diseases, but that's not the case.
