It’s a very interesting time in human history. The birth of alternative media outlets has allowed information to spread across the globe, rapidly. Today, extreme measures have been taken and are being taken to label information as ‘false news.’ Granted, a lot of information out there is indeed false news, but media outlets are getting flagged, demonetized and censored for sharing information that is perfectly valid.
Intravenous vitamin C treatment for covid-19 patients is one of the latest examples, multiple media outlets claimed that it is very unlikely that it can do anything to help, and ‘fact checkers’ even flagged some articles providing evidence suggesting that it may. Meanwhile, as far as Vitamin C treatment for Covid-19 goes, regardless of what some media outlets are claiming, Medicine in Drug Discovery of Elsevier, a major scientific publishing house, recently published an article on early and high-dose IVC in the treatment and prevention of Covid-19. Here is an excerpt:
“The COVID-19 (SARS-2-Cov) pandemic, first reported in Wuhan, China, is now spreading to many continents and countries, causing a severe public health burden. Currently, there is no vaccine or specific antiviral drug for this deadly disease. A quick, deployable and accessible, effective and safe treatment is urgently needed to save lives and curtail the spreading. Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a key factor of fatality. Significantly increased oxidative stress due to rapid release of free radicals and cytokines is the hallmark of ARDS which leads to cellular injury, organ failure and death. Early use of large dose antioxidants, such as vitamin C (VC) may become an effective treatment for these patients. Clinical studies also show that high-dose oral VC provides certain protection against viral infection. Neither intravenous nor oral administration of high-dose VC is associated with significant side effects. Therefore, this regimen should be included in the treatment of COVID-19 and used as a preventative measure for susceptible populations such as healthcare workers with higher exposure risks.”
Vitamin C was successfully used to treat 50 moderate to severe covid-19 patients, and some New York hospitals have even started to use the treatment.
The author of that publication (mentioned above), Dr. Richard Cheng, has been updating everyone via his YouTube channel about vitamin C treatment cases out of China prior to the publication of his article.
- I was made aware that FB Fact Check claims “Shanghai did not officially recommend high-dose IVC for the treatment of Covid-19” . Let me make it clear that not only Shanghai, but also Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, another major city in China, publicly endorsed high-dose IVC for the treatment of Covid-19. Those who Fact Check, please be more careful.
One of the latest experts to share an opinion that counters what we’re seeing within the ‘mainstream’ comes from Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, a specialist in microbiology and one of the most cited research scientists in German history. Bhakdi created a Youtube channel on March 18th, and has since posted four videos that have received more than one million views, total, in a very short span of time. He has, just like Dr. Cheng, been subjected to irresponsible fact checking that has attempted to discredit him. He recently uploaded what appears to be his last video, and reads an open letter from him to the German Chancellor. His sentiments echo those of three Stanford professors of medicine who recently shared their expert opinion that extraordinary claims require extraordinary data. You can read more about that specifically, here.
