How to protect your family from Ebola infection

If it wasn’t happening I wouldn’t believe it! But night after night I’ve seen Wolf Blitzer on CNN and Peter Mansbridge on CBC news talking about Ebola, interviewing infectious disease experts about it. Yet, to my knowledge, no one in medical circles nor in the media has discussed the fact that there’s a proven way to treat viral diseases successfully, such as Ebola.

What astounds me is that intelligent people are totally ignorant of medical history. Their lack of knowledge has doomed Ebola victims in West Africa and may kill others if this disease hits North America with a vengeance.

Sixty-four years ago Dr. Frederick Klenner, a small town family doctor treated 60 polio patients with large doses of intravenous Vitamin C. This killed the virus. Not one patient developed paralysis. Later, he showed that other viral diseases such as meningitis, encephalitis and measles could be cured by large amounts of intravenous Vitamin C. This research is collecting dust.

Others have also reported that the proper dosage of intravenous Vitamin C will cure all viral diseases. The research is well documented and available for all to see on the Internet.

Currently prevention has a dismal track record. Nurses using the designated protocol and protective clothing have developed Ebola. It’s not surprising, as getting safely out of this clothing is precarious. Consider the awkward scenario if, while wearing this suit of infected armour, they should need to use the bathroom while on duty with a patient! One slip means infection and possible death. Then all the bodily protection is useless.

There are other serious problems. Will adequate isolation areas be available if large numbers of suspected patients require them?

Will there be enough nurses and other personnel trained in infection? Will the supply of protective clothing run out? Will human excrement, bodily fluids, and infected equipment be handled safely? Some hospital personnel have already refused to enter a room due to a lack of protection. Some may decide the job is too dangerous and go home.

Finally, how many people will want to enter a hospital when it’s treating desperately ill Ebola patients? Particularly when doctors admit they have no 100% cure for treating Ebola. It’s easy to see how the system can break down.

So what can you do to decrease your risk of Ebola infection? I’ve talked to several experts and one approach makes the most sense to me. It’s the one I’ve recommended to my family. But you should seek the advice of your own doctor.

One researcher claimed the most effective preventive is to immediately give the immune system a boost with oral doses of Vitamin C. This process saturates the blood with C and provides a healthy baseline of this vitamin in case Ebola strikes. The dose is 2,000 milligrams (mgs) of Vitamin C with breakfast and the evening meal.

But if Ebola strikes then it’s imperative to increase the amount of Vitamin C every other hour up to bowel tolerance. High doses of Vitamin C eventually cause diarrhea, but tolerance varies from person to person. The message is to take as much Vitamin C as you can if infected with Ebola.

This expert believed that continuous high doses of Vitamin C for several days may be just as effective as the intravenous route. It’s also more practical during an epidemic.

I believe that it is also prudent to add lysine to this therapy. Lysine adds strength to the arterial wall making it less likely to rupture and cause death which happens with Ebola infection.

My advice is to visit a Health Food Store for further information. Powder and pill forms of vitamin C are available, containing both ingredients in the right dosage. But pills are also available that can be taken separately.

Let’s hope the Ebola problem soon subsides. But this may not happen so supplies of Vitamin C, a natural remedy, may run short if panic sets in. Moreover, this combination is not a waste of money. It also prevents and reverses coronary heart disease. Regrettably, this information is also collecting dust.
