Just a few days ago we learned that one of this country’s presidential candidates has pneumonia. Then we read an excellent article that would help her in her battle with it. It is our sincere hope she and her doctors will take this article seriously, as it could have a major impact on how quickly she can recover and regain her health.
For anyone interested in learning more about approaches to maintaining and restoring health, the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service will provide timely and well researched information.

Vitamin C Cures Pneumonia
A powerful second opinion for Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and everyone by Andrew W. Saul, Editor
(OMNS, Sept 12, 2016) Clinical evidence confirms vitamin C's powerful antiviral/antibiotic effect against pneumonia when used in sufficient quantity.
Robert F. Cathcart, MD, successfully treated pneumonia with up to 200,000 milligrams of vitamin C daily. (1,2) One can, to a significant extent, simulate an IV of vitamin C by taking it by mouth very, very often. When I had pneumonia, it took 2,000 mg of vitamin C every six minutes to get me to saturation (bowel tolerance). In three hours, fever was reduced several degrees and coughing virtually stopped. At an oral daily dose of just over 100,000 mg, complete recovery took just a few days.
Treating pneumonia, with massive amounts of vitamin C is not a new idea at all. Board-certified chest specialist Frederick R. Klenner, M.D. routinely used this approach for decades, beginning back in the 1940's. (3) If your doctor believes that vitamin C has merit generally, but that massive doses are ineffective or somehow harmful, he or she will do well to read the doctor's original papers. (4)
Vitamin C can be used alone or right along with medicines if one so chooses. Prescription drugs are not doing the job. Over 50,000 Americans die from pneumonia each year. There is no question that aggressive use of vitamin C would lower that figure a great deal. And there is no humane excuse for excluding it.
Please feel free to share this article with any member of any political party. Politicians need vitamin C, too.
