Hello- I am wondering if anybody who has tried this could share their experience with me. I am wondering if just high dose vitamin C therapy (not with salt or anything) has been helpful or hurtful to anyone.
Have you had any side effects from this or felt it helped with lyme or any viruses?
I am curious if anyone has tried this in IV form too and what the experience was.
Currently, I am doing an IV Vitamin C protocol at one of my doctor's office. I have been getting an IV once per week for the last 5 weeks.
For this protocol they start you out at 15gm vitamin c and they also add B vitamins and glutathione near the end of each bag.
I had 2 bags with the 15gm, then it went up to a bigger bag of 25gm for 2 weeks and the last one I had was a larger bag (650ml), but I can't remember the vitamin C dose.
I can say I noticed a definite up swing in my energy, etc. after the first 25gm bag. I notice a bit after the second 25gm bag, but not so much. I think this was complicated by my Lyme cycling at the same time.
The last bag was okay, not a big difference, but I have been under some stress lately, and I think that has affected the results.
However, I got sick in September with an upper respiratory thing and was couging a long time (2 months), then I got sick AGAIN at the beggining of November and the cough lasted and lasted. I feel this has really kicked that out of me.
The only down side for me is the time it takes to infuse. The big bag takes 3 hours! Not sure how long I can do this with taking time from work and paying for it, etc.
I think my doctor would recommend 2 bags per week, but I just can't do that.
