• Mysterious Havana Syndrome: Blame It On the Ruskies! Or Is It Beriberi?

    Posted August 23, 2021: by Bill Sardi

    Mysterious Havana Syndrome At Diplomatic Stations Around The Globe Blamed On The Russians;  Diplomats Mistakenly Think The Ruskies Are Aiming Electronic Weapons At Them When It Is More Likely They Are Drinking Too Much Alcohol And Coffee

    U.S. diplomats around the globe report symptoms of nausea, severe headaches, ear pain, fatigue, insomnia and sluggishness, that typically leave sufferers unable to work, says a report posted at ZeroHedge.com.

    They call it “Havana Syndrome” – “a strange affliction that keeps cropping up in members of the American diplomatic service (many of whom just happen to be spies, often working on issues related to Russia or China).”

    The syndrome of symptoms was first reported in 1917 at the US embassy in Havana, Cuba, which is how it got its name.  Perplexed diplomats surmise electronic weapons of some sort are being aimed at them.

    One diplomat treated at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland says doctors diagnosed him with a brain injury.

    These mysterious symptoms correlate with beriberi, a vitamin B1 deficiency that can develop when well-nourished people consume alcohol, coffee, tea, or take medicines such as antacids or diuretics that block the absorption or internal transport of B1 or simply wash it out of the human body.

  • Just How Is Autoimmune Disease Going To Be Fixed Without Vitamin C?

    Posted July 30, 2021: by Bill Sardi

    This report about autoimmune disorders focuses on a family of three human enzymes called ten-eleven translocation (TET) enzymes.

    Vitamin C stimulates production of TET proteins (ten-eleven translocation enzymes), important in the control of the immune system and in particular heading off autoimmune disorders.

    Lo and behold, a recent report entitled “Harnessing The Combined Power Of Vitamin C And Tet Proteins May Give Scientists A Leg Up In Treating Autoimmune Diseases,” says “You can’t make a banana split without bananas and you can’t generate stable regulating T-cells (thymus cells) without vitamin C or enzymes called TET proteins.”

    This has been known for almost a decade now, but researchers act like it is a new revelation.  In fact, these same researchers say they are “looking for more small molecules to stabilize TET enzymes that regulate T-regs,” when vitamin C is almost completely overlooked in treatment plans for autoimmune disorders.

  • Failed Vitamin C Study. When Will They Print The Retractions?

    Bias Revealed In Negative Vitamin C/ COVID-19 Study

    Prior Negative COVID-19 Vitamin C Study, Halted Prematurely Because of Alleged Ineffectiveness, Found to Increase Rate of Recovery by 70% Upon Reanalysis

    • Ascorbic acid fails to significantly decrease duration of COVID-19 symptoms. – Healio
    • Supplements fail for COVID-19.  – Medpage Today.
    • We applaud the COVID-19 study for adding rigorous science and challenging popular beliefs.  Vitamin C failed to live up to its hype.  – JAMA Network Open

    Where was the peer review?  Where were the trained medical journalists to take researchers to task over prematurely halting a vitamin C/COVID-19 symptom study when both statistical and meaningfully clinical benefits were readily apparent, when so many American lives were reported to be at stake?

    Gene-Altering Drug May Reduce Risk Factor For Heart Attack But Not Save Lives

    New Gene-Altering Drug Reveals How Drug Companies And Clinicians Use The FDA-Drug Approval Process To Plunder Pools Of Insurance Money While Denying Proven Natural Remedies

    The anticipated FDA approval of an injected drug that will lower a risk factor for heart attack which is not addressed by statin cholesterol-lowering drugs has American medicine salivating.

    The drug would only need to be injected twice a year.  Patients with elevated lipoprotein(a) levels, which is a fatty protein produced in the liver that enters the blood circulation and increases risk for a heart attack, primarily affects 1 in 250 individuals worldwide with a family history.  About 60 million Americans have elevated Lp(a) levels.  Roughly 1 in 7 heart attacks are associated with high Lp(a) levels, but may not be causal for heart attacks, as you will learn below.  Concentrations of Lp(a) vary by 1000-fold between individuals.

    Use of this new drug would likely expand to others without a family history but with elevated Lp(a) blood levels, so it could become a bonanza for cardiologists and the drug industry — $1.5 billion sales projected by 2030.

  • Supplemental Vitamin C Abolishes Brain Plaque

    Posted April 12, 2021: by Bill Sardi with Matthew Sardi

    Modern medicine has finally realized its many experiments with laboratory mice have been flawed by the failure to recognize humans do not secrete vitamin C as rodents do. Therefore, many scientific studies performed in mice have little application to humans.

    Unlike most other animals, patients with Alzheimer’s disease have a progressive buildup of beta amyloid plaque in their brains and loss of memory. Researchers now think they have found out why.

  • Why Cancer Can’t Be Cured Until Internal Synthesis of Vitamin C is Restored

    Acute stress is unique to man.  The chart below reveals the amount of adrenal stress hormones (cortisol) released by humans compared to other animals.

    Chart: Adrenal stress humans vs animals

    There are exceptions: guinea pigs, fruit bats, primate monkeys. These four species share a genetic flaw.  Unlike other mammals, these do not synthesize ascorbate from their liver (ascorbate being the medical term for vitamin C).

  • Another Negative Vitamin Study Bites the Dust

    Posted February 15, 2021: by Bill Sardi

    Aw, another vitamin study fizzles. Just when almost-everybody is taking vitamin pills in hopes of staving off a COVID-19 infection, a study concludes two mainstays of dietary supplementation, mega-dose vitamin C and high-dose zinc, failed to shorten the number of days of symptomatic infection among 214 adult outpatients freshly diagnosed with COVID-19.  Investigators concluded “these supplements cannot be recommended to reduce symptom morbidity in such patients.”  Or can they?

    A pretty hefty dose of vitamin C (8000 milligrams in divided doses) was given to these COVID-19 patients, diagnosed by the notoriously inaccurate PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test that yields many false positives.  Given that vitamin C is rapidly excreted, doses spread out over time achieve higher blood serum concentrations than a single mega-dose.  According to one study, the optimal vitamin C frequency is 4 times a day.

  • Hospitals May Be Slow To Add Vitamin D To COVID-19 Treatment Regimens Because Of Loss Of Income

    Posted September 12, 2020: by Bill Sardi

    A growing body of published studies indicate vitamin D supplementation may allay the symptoms and severity of COVID-19 infections, enough to keep hospitalized patients out of the intensive care unit.  The most recent of these studies, published in The Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (Aug 29,2020) is more than convincing.

    But this remarkable study is not likely to change the practices of modern medicine, even though it completely abolished COVID-19-related deaths in the intensive care unit (ICU) and reduced admission from a standard COVID-19 care ward to the ICU from 50% to 2%.

    The study involved 76 hospitalized patients who were COVID-19-positive and had symptoms of coronavirus infection such as dry cough, shortness of breath, fever and diarrhea who were on a standard-care COVID-19 hospital ward.

  • We Aren’t Applying All We Know About Vitamin C

    Posted May 25, 2020: by Bill Sardi

    sdAlmost 8 in 10 Americans rate the quality of their personal health care as “excellent or good.”  But compared to what?  Most Americans only hear that America spends more on healthcare than any other country and that it has the most advanced healthcare in the world.  Yet for all the money spent, the US ranks 38th in life expectancy.

    How would patients know how to measure the quality of care they receive unless they have something to compare it against?

    Japan, with the highest overall life expectancy from birth of 84.5 years, compared to 78.9 years in the U.S., has a completely voluntary vaccination program and according to the Japanese Society for Orthomolecular Medicine, has over 400 trained practitioners at “vitamin C clinics” dotted across Japan’s five main islands.  This author can only count 1 vitamin C clinic in the U.S. (Riordan Clinic, Wichita, Kansas)

    For the want of a single vitamin, Americans may be losing out on the best healthcare in the world.  While American physicians continue to embrace the cholesterol paradigm of health, Japan has turned to vitamin C.

  • WOULD IT BE UNAMERICAN TO REFUSE CORONAVIRUS VACCINATION?

    Posted March 14, 2020: by Bill Sardi

    The day is going to come when the long-awaited coronavirus vaccine becomes available.  Will it be your civic duty to submit to vaccination?

    I’m asking you why you are believing the scare tactics of the virologists, in particular that everyone will get infected with coronavirus.  Great!  Then nobody will need to get vaccinated!!  Because they will have already developed antibodies on their own.  This is the great ruse of the coronavirus.  Manipulation of the population by health authorities.

    A few may be sickened – – smokers, diabetics, obese, the aged, etc.  The very weak may succumb to a viral infection that would otherwise cause only mild symptoms.  The healthy will either experience a mild fever or no symptoms at all.
