Here’s the first of the series!
I came home quite sick, unable to sleep well and just feeling crap. I had a fever as well and thought “Great time to try out the Vitamin C in terms of bringing down a fever!”
Out came the Vitamin C powder!
Originally I started with pure Ascorbic Acid but the taste is incredibly sour so I switched to the Melrose Vitamin C powder with calcium ascorbate and orange flavouring in it. MUCH better!
I took 1tsp of powder in a glass of water every 2 hours on the first day until I got loose in the bowels. I tested my fever after the second dose and it had gone – I was back to normal body temperature.
At that point, I stopped for the day then started again the next day (day two), and did the same the following day (day three).
By day three I had no further symptoms – clear nose, no headaches or body aches, no coughing. After only 3 days on large amounts of vitamin C!
Studies have shown that a cold / flu virus will last for between 7 – 10 days. Doctors say to let it run its course and just take Panadol for fever, headaches etc. I was able to beat this little sucker down in 3 days… does that give you an idea of the effectiveness and validity of Vitamin C treatment?
I hope so – it works for me!
Love and Vitamin C,
