Research into vitamin C is progressing rapidly despite a lack of funding from conventional medicine into its clinical applications. Orthomolecular medicine, which uses nutrients in large doses to treat disease, is regarded as highly controversial by the medical establishment. This rejection of the orthomolecular approach has little basis in science and reflects a bias at the heart of the status quo.

This book tells the story of how the controversy about vitamin C has grown and continues while the increasing evidence demonstrates the value of the orthomolecular approach. The story of vitamin C is an exciting journey into the workings of science and medicine, the intrigues of political economic influences, and the evolutionary history of humankind. Someday, medicine without vitamin C therapy will be compared to childbirth without sanitation or surgery without anesthetic.

You'll see that mega doses of vitamin C have proven to be an effective antibiotic, a nontoxic anticancer agent, and also a treatment for heart disease. We'll explain the real reasons behind conventional medicine's rejection of vitamin C therapy. You'll meet the pioneers of vitamin C research, who often faced great resistance in their advocacy for the health benefits of this nutrient.

Vitamin C is a simple molecule with powerful effects. If you want to be healthy, you should take enough vitamin C. After reading this book, you will know why and how much.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Vitamin C, the Real Story 31. März 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Wer es liest wird feststellen, wie fest die Pharmamafia Medien und Gesundheitssystem im Griff hat. Es wird Zeit, den eigenen Verstand einzuschalten und unabhängig von den Lügen derjenigen zu werden, die in Wirklichkeit nur behandeln, aber nicht heilen wollen. Bei meiner Familie und mir funktioniert die "hochdosierte" Ascorbinsäure jedenfalls bestens! Daher: Lesen und selber denken und ausprobieren. Wer Ärzte fragt, ist selber schuld.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Virtually everything you've been told about vitamin C is wrong! 16. Februar 2009
Von Richard Bennett - Veröffentlicht auf
An entire book about vitamin C? Is there really that much more to say about this subject? As it turns out, there is a great deal more to be said, and Drs. Hickey and Saul say it very well! In this very well-written, well-referenced book, we learn specifically how this essential nutrient works in our bodies to help create and maintain optimum health. We are taken on a journey into the world of our cells, into the world of free radicals and antioxidants, and shown with great clarity, the truly remarkable role that vitamin C plays in the healthy maintenance of our bodies.

We learn also, of the history of vitamin C research, and why the mainsteam medical community has chosen to ignore this research. Most importantly, we learn specifically how we can best benefit from the many decades of research on vitamin C, in order to gain and maintain good health in our own lives.

For anyone confused by the seemingly conflicting information printed in the mainstream press about vitamin C, I highly recommend this detailed, yet highly readable book. Reading VITAMIN C: THE REAL STORY, will likely change the way you think about vitamin C. Then again, it just may change your life.

4.0 von 5 Sternen great book on the highly underrated importance of vit C 8. Januar 2009
Von Damos11 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Apart from various websites, this is the first book I've read about Vitamin C and I found it immensely informative and very valuable. I strongly recommend it to anyone interested in achieving optimal health and avoiding as much disease as possible later in life. Saul & Hickey do a good job explaining the history, the science, methodology and reasoning behind large doses, the controversy, and the chemistry. All this is covered as you proceed through the book and sets you up well for their synthesis in the final chapters where they lay down a very detailed explanation of how the fundamental cause of atherosclerosis is highly likely to arise from less than optimal levels of antioxidants, particularly Vitamin C, in the body. This was the section I found the most interesting. The book also has a great section on cancer, how it develops, and how Vitamin C can play a role in prevention and treatment.

Having done some internet research today since finishing the book I am a little surprised they never mention the role of the various genes that have arisen in animals that can't produce their own Vitamin C such as the one that produces Uric Acid (as wikipedia says it provides about half of the antioxidant capacity of the plasma), along with the ability to recycle ascorbate which is also seems unique to upper primates, guinea pigs and bats according to this recent article. [...] I think this is interesting too and could have been mentioned when comparing our vitamin C requirements to animals that make their own (hence the four stars). Nevertheless, this is minor, and gorillas eat 2-5g of ascorbate a day anyway which is way beyond what most people eat and about the range they recommend here for maintaining good health.

I think they make a very strong argument for increasing intake for optimum health, so I know I will be doing just that.
This is a great book, which is easy to read, concise and full of valuable information that could very well extend the length and quality of your life - and if you ever catch a lethal strain of legionnaires disease you'll know what to do!

Vitamin C: The Real Story
The Remarkable and Controversial Story of Vitamin C
by Steve Hickey, PhD and Andrew Saul, PhD,
2008, Basic Health Publications Inc., CA, 192 pages [...]

A curious title. What could be remarkable or controversial about vitamin C? Thousands of children take Flintstone multis every day; don't they get enough vitamin C? Many adults take some C when they have a cold. Even without supplements, don't most people get enough vitamins and minerals in their fruits and veggies? Authors Hickey and Saul think we need to know the truth about vitamin C. Their fascinating book presents some truly remarkable vitamin C discoveries. They outline its health-maintaining functions, introduce its health-restoring capabilities and warn us about anti-vitamin-therapy factoids.

Steven Hickey, PhD and Andrew Saul, PhD present the real story clearly and carefully. Readers will gradually realize that the vitamin C story has two dimensions. On the bright side, scientific and medical researchers have documented decades of vitamin research, clinical progress and success. Vital amines, and other nutritional substances, are essential for health and useful for healing. Over the past 100 years, a succession of scientific researchers studied the biochemistry of vitamin C and learned that vital amines sustain metabolism. Minimal doses of vitamin C can heal scurvy however optimum doses of vitamin C have remarkable health-restoring capabilities. Researchers carried out clinical trials, detailed patient recoveries, corroborated findings and wrote journal articles and reference books. The vitamin C story also has a disturbing dark side. Rather than telling the truth, certain health professionals dismiss the vitamin C research and disparage the clinical progress reports. They ignore vitamin C's health-maintaining functions and dispute its health-restoring capabilities. The anti-vitamin-therapy skeptics use factoids to support their denials, as outlined in this book.

Like a Swiss-army knife, vitamin C has multiple capabilities. When we pick up a Swiss-army knife for the first time, we expect to find large and small blades but we may not inspect it carefully. In an emergency, we happily discover that a Swiss-army knife comes with a versatile set of built-in tools: a screwdriver, a tooth pick, a cork screw and a file. After these tiny tools save lives, the word gets out. Eventually the public learns that each Swiss army knife comes with life-saving tools. Consider the metabolic and healing capabilities of vitamins as tools for restoring health. In milligram doses, vitamin C enables essential metabolic pathways to sustain life. Small doses can heal scurvy. If taken in large enough doses when a patient has cancer or an infection or an overload of toxins, vitamin C can heal and restore health. The general public still does not know that vitamin C has a number of lifesaving capabilities. Meanwhile, certain experts, who should know better than to publish false information, scoff at vitamin C research, forget its biochemistry, ignore its metabolic functions and deny its therapeutic value. Why don't more scientific and medical professionals study the vitamin C research, review the clinical trials, interview recovered patients and learn that therapeutic doses of vitamin C really can restore health and save lives? Too busy. How can trusting patients know if our doctors understand and apply the healing capabilities of vitamin C or use false factoids to withhold vitamin treatments? Patients and families, caregivers and health professionals can read books and articles about vitamin C to learn the facts for ourselves.

Vitamin C: The Real Story teaches us that a hundred years after the discovery of vitamin C, mankind is still researching the biochemistry of essential nutrients and developing medical applications. We learn that vital amines, trace minerals, amino and fatty acids, hormones and many other nutrients are essential for sustaining life. Optimum doses can restore health. Orthomolecular health professionals know that regimens of vitamin C and other nutritional supplements, if given in the right doses, can help patients recover and live well. They routinely prescribe supplements and adjust the doses to suit each patient's diagnosis and biochemical individuality. Readers of this book will learn to distinguish the facts about vitamin C from the anti-C factoids. Patients can ask their doctors about vitamin research, optimal doses and patient recoveries. Readers are cautioned to take care with their health. Anyone who reads this book will learn useful facts about vitamin C and its clinical applications: therapeutic doses of vitamin C can restore health when taken as recommended by qualified medical professionals who understand biochemistry and know when to prescribe vitamin C as a complementary and restorative treatment.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Essential reading for all doctors, and patients (and everyone) 12. Februar 2010
Von Jodi-Hummingbird - Veröffentlicht auf
This books starts with a really wonderful introductory text by the 90 year old Abram Hoffer M.D. PhD., a man that has taken large amounts of vitamin C for 50 years with many positive effects and given it to a vast number of patients with many positive effects. The only problem as he points out is that as a doctor, it isn't great for you in soem ways if your patients all become too well because your treatment works so well!

Long story short, if you have cancer or any type of viral or bacterial disease, or any chronic disease or you want to avoid disease and live a longer and healthier life, you need to read this book - or at least understand the basics of orthomolecular medicine and the importance and effectiveness of high dose vitamin C taken daily.

As this book explains `Just about everything doctors have been telling us about vitamin C is wrong'

One of the most important messages of the book is that, if a doctor is unsure of the diagnosis, high dose vitamin C should always be given while the correct diagnosis is pondered.

The book also includes great information about Pauling, Cathcart, Klenner and Stone and other orthomolecular medicine pioneers.

This is an excellent book for doctors, as it explains why the facts about vitamin C are twisted and ignored in mainstream medicine as well as providing a mountain of solid evidence for the effectiveness of vitamin C. The book is also very easy to read for patients and members of the public.

This is a great book for laying out the facts of vitamin C therapy and why it is so important, however very little practical information is given. To be clear, it isn't very complex and only a small amount of information is needed. But this book did not explain at all how to buffer plain ascorbic acid with bicarb soda, or the benefits of IV vitamin C over oral vitamin C and so on. All it says is that ascorbic acid is the best form, and that you do not need to worry about buying expensive `vitamin C complexes with bioflavonoids' and little else.

Articles from some of the authors listed above are far better sources of practical information on how to take high dose vitamin C, but this book is rock solid in amassing so much credible and important information on this topic in one place. The authors are to be congratulated on this important book that needs to be widely read by doctors and members of the public. This book will change your mind about vitamin C and could even have a big impact on your life and health.

This book is very similar to Ascorbate: The Science of Vitamin C, but if I had to choose between the two I'd choose this one, as it's so much more reader-friendly and simpler (both books are of a very high quality however, and excellent for giving to your doctor). Also essential reading are Dr Levy's two new C books which also discuss liposomal C.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Eye opener 20. März 2011
Von P. J. Russell - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is quite simply a revelation. It reminded me while reading of the Matrix when Neo is instructed to "open your mind" to see the "real" world. 1.It makes you realize just how the Pharmaceutical industry so fully compromises our health for profit and greed. 2. How Pharma studies are so full of crap and generally followed religiously by the medical establishment that you wonder why most of us aren't dead already - Oh, I forgot, they don't actually want to kill us lest they ruin their revenue source. 3. It shows how ascorbate as a very natural and very NON-toxic substance works as most likely one of the best healing sources around - IN APPROPRIATE DOSEAGE....4. and Finally how you can learn to nearly NEVER get a cold or flu again and help yourself combat some of the worst diseases and virus around with Vitamin C!....amazing book.
