Allopathic Taliban suffer another blow

I’m a huge proponent of orthomolecular medicine, which is the practice of fighting diseases with the substances our bodies need to be healthy, ie. certain vitamins and minerals often in super-megadoses. Orthomolecular medicine is in direct opposition to allopathic (traditional) medicine, which uses substances that our bodies normally don’t use (example: all pharmaceutical drugs) for medicine in order to fight diseases.

… the NIH published a study last week that Vitamin C does indeed fight cancer, while not affecting non-cancerous tissue. In fact it apparently does this better than any other substance known to mankind

To the chagrin of the Allopathic Taliban (those who blindly commit professional violence against those who use or prescribe vitamins in a therapeutic manner as a matter of professional bigotry) the NIH published a study last week that Vitamin C does indeed fight cancer, while not affecting non-cancerous tissue. In fact it apparently does this better than any other substance known to mankind. Again, that’s NIH, the National Institutes of Health saying this – the same institute who disparaged Linus Pauling, 2 time Nobel Laureate, 30 years ago for saying the exact same thing: Vitamin C fights cancer and strengthens the body. This claim about Vitamin C is in fact listed as quakery by allopaths and their minions everywhere. Other claims even attempt to suggest that Vitamin C increases cancer with the most hokey reasoning imaginable.

mercolla's clever allopathic allegory

Now they’re disparaging Pauling (an easy thing to do now since Pauling is dead) for not going about it differently 30 years ago. For example, Mark Levine (a pseudo-advocate of Vit C therapies) says “If Linus Pauling, the two-time Nobel laureate turned vitamin C zealot, had taken an equally dispassionate stance 30 years ago, who knows where the vitamin would be in oncology today”, then later equivocates the questing that the medical community screwed up by disparaging Vitamin C “is akin to ‘Do you still beat your wife?’ “.

Levine equivocates the questing that the medical community screwed up by disparaging Vitamin C “is akin to ‘Do you still beat your wife?’ “. The fact is that they have, and if that’s like “[beating] your wife”, then they’re as guilty as a rabid male chauvinist.

Well, I don’t ask the question. I state it as a matter of fact: The allopathic medical community as a whole has systematically sabotaged every study they possibly could over the last 30 years that would have otherwise vindicated Pauling’s claims. Why? Because he was an outsider to the medical community? Because pharmaceutical companies were scared? Because it was just so incredibly different (the horrors: cheap vitamins for therapy!)? Who knows why they have done this … it doesn’t matter why. The fact is that they have sabotaged every megavitamin study ever, and I don’t mean offense to Mark Levine but if that’s like “[beating] your wife”, then as a society the AMA is as guilty as a rabid male chauvinist by completely abandoning their Hippocratic oath with respect to orthomolecular therapies.

Levine himself did that when he discouraged people from using megavitamins in the conclusion of his study that proved Vitamin C kills cancer while not hurting adjacent healthy tissue, and later saying : “This is not ready for patients yet”, and just that “we should reinvestigate”, and “there may be a new hope coming, but it’s certainly not here”.  1000’s who’ve added years to their lives, and a wealth of data on the safety of Vit C protocols strongly disagree that “it’s certainly not here”.  Shame on you Levine and others for knowingly proving it’s safety, simplicity, and efficacy and then discouraging usage for what I can only assume is out of fear for professional retribution.  Hippocrates be damned.  Such are not doctors nor health practitioners, but mere scientists.

And that’s why your doctor would rather stuff your body full of toxic things it’s never experienced before, than to use vitamins and other chemistries that fortify and build human tissue. Never mind that AIDS patients have received as much as 300,000 mg / day of buffered vitamin C shot directly into their bloodstream without any adverse long-term effects, your doctor will still insist that it’s unhealthy for you to consume, just orally, a mere 5,000 mg/day (1/60 as much). Apparently allopathic doctors (most doctors) feel it’s okay if all your hair falls out while killing off massive amounts of vital healthy skin tissue with traditional (allopathic) cancer therapy, but heaven forbid you suffer a little bowel discomfort from consuming too much vitamin C because it might dehydrate you.  Apparently none of them heard of drinking more water.

The truth is that you can avoid bowel discomfort / diarrhea if you take buffered C (ex:sodium ascorbate) along with another anti-oxidant vitamin E, and plenty of water.  I’ve found you can guarantee no bowel discomfort with mega-doses of Vit C in a delicious shake (which tastes like lighly carbonated “gogurt”) by blending 20g Vit C powder in with 10 flavored anti-acid wafers (calcium-carbonate), along with 1/3 cup sugar and 2 cups water.  If you have gas after mega-C doses then you need to drink a lot more water than you’ve been drinking, which also has innumerable other benefits.

Eventually the reign of the allopathic Taliban will come to and end as more studies like this are brought to light by highly principled physicians who can read beyond poorly done studies using insufficient dosage levels. It’s just a matter of time before the old doctors die off and the new ones can put the blame where it deserves: tradition and professional prejudice.

Sadly, it’s just a shame that in the meantime so many patients will go broke with expensive and toxic drugs while needlessly suffering illness and even unecessary death.

I incidentally, have been taking an average 20,000 mg/ day for 4 years now and have never felt better. I have taken as much as 60,000 mg/day orally with no adverse side effects.



  1. Until the medical insurance companies reimburse for the use of ascorbate via IV as a maintenance treatment for patients with cancer, hospitals and “legit” MD’s will not offer the therapy to their patients.

    My wife has to travel 70 miles round trip to find a doctor who offers vitamin C IV treatments. It costs us $140 per treatment. That is over and above our already burdening monthly health insurance premium of $1000 Our hospital offers theraputic “drumming” and “Yoga” for women with cancer, but the doctors scoffed at us when we requested vitamin C IV treatments. Oh, yes. insurance pays for Yoga. I don’t know about drumming.I never asked.

  2. Jock –

    I empathize. You’d think insurance companies would jump on the cellular medicine bandwagon. It would save them tons of money if all cancer patients were healed cheaply and efficiently with antioxidant therapies like vitamin C. Sounds like somebody needs to make a fuss and make them wakeup and smell the allopathic prejudice.

    Perhaps you could find yourself an RN who does home visits and then see if you could find a medical grade source of sodium ascorbate solution in pre-made sealed IV bags from a reputable source for him/her to administer. My guess is that this would have to be done under the supervision of a doctor. Home care nurses do this all the time – it’s just a matter of making the right connections so they can provide the right thing.
