Doctor Game: Why don’t we send a planeload of Medi-C Plus to China?

By Gifford Jones on February 10, 2020.

One of my sons has been in the travel business for years. Today he said, “We’ve cancelled all of our tours to China due to the coronavirus scare.” I replied, “That’s unfortunate, but if we don’t send tourists just now, perhaps we should be sending Medi-C Plus. I’ve been arguing for years that high doses of vitamin C is a lifesaver in boosting immune system performance.” The question arose, what would I do if a family member contracted the coronavirus?

Last week, several university professors and international viral disease experts reported ways to treat coronavirus infection. Their unanimous opinion was that high doses of intravenous vitamin C would be effective in controlling infection.

In China many people have decided to use Chinese remedies to treat a dangerous and potentially lethal virus. Chinese dispensaries report they’re running out of honey suckle, the dried fruit of the weeping forsythia, eupatorium, and patchouli. And other pharmacies have been cleaned out of a variety of Chinese herbs.

Apparently Chinese authorities have authorized the use of these remedies to treat coronavirus. It may be that this medication does ease some of the symptoms associated with the infection, but people are still dying.

There is a great irony in this situation. The majority of vitamin C sold in North America is imported from China. Medi-C Plus is no exception. There is no concern about the quality of the product. Assured Naturals, a manufacturer in Vancouver, uses sophisticated spectrometry to detect one billionth particle of lead or mercury contamination in imported material. If detected the product is destroyed. 

The other irony? Medi-C Plus powder is available in North America and helps to build up immunity, offering protection in the event coronavirus strikes. But vitamin C is not being used in China for the same purpose. (See my website for the dosage schedules I suggested last week.) Medi-C Plus and other brands are available in Health Food Stores in Canada or through Amazon in the U.S.

I hope that coronavirus infection will soon subside. But I doubt this will happen quickly and more North Americans will die needlessly. This is a tragic and unconscionable situation for several reasons.

“Credite rebus” (believe the facts) is the answer to the coronavirus, but the facts are being ignored. I’m not an expert on viral diseases. But last week’s article shared the opinions of international authorities that high doses of intravenous vitamin C is an effective treatment.

I say this with great reluctance. But if a family member of mine died due to coronavirus infection, after a doctor refused to use IVC, I would challenge his or her treatment in a court of law. I would win. Credible research cannot be ignored.

The fact is that people are still dying of other viral diseases, such as influenza and pneumonia, because IVC is still a taboo treatment within the medical establishment.

Discussion of the coronavirus continues in the media. But I have not heard mention of the therapeutic value of intravenous vitamin C.

History has already proven the naysayers wrong, Dr. Frederick R. Klenner, a U.S family doctor, did it in 1950 when he treated 60 polio patients with IVC and none developed paralysis. Yet when he presented these cases at an international medical meeting, no one listened.

All this reminds me of Sir Oliver Cromwell, the Lord Protector of England. During a heated discussion he remarked to his parliamentary critics, “In the bowels of Christ, think it possible that you may be mistaken?”
