Vitamin C safety and uses

Recommended Posts

I had earlier this week reported on the results we had with our DS when we gave him vitamin C during the early phase of a pertussis infection. What we saw as a result of this treatment was the disappearance/resolution of some persistent fears/worries/behaviours.

 

When I posted this experience a concern was raised that vitamin C could cause a health concern. As I did not include any references to studies etc I wanted to provide those to parents who are interesting in this topic and would like to explore this as a possible route to treat colds, infections etc that tend to be a huge crisis for children with PANDAS etc.

 

My current favorite site/practitioner is doctoryourself.com and Dr. Andrew Saul but their are many other practitioners, biochemist etc working in this area that you can read about. Dr. Saul is an scientist, nutritionist and educator. I personally like his approach. I find his material comprehensive and always with the research included.

 

These sites discuss both the concern raised that high doses of vitamin c are dangerous as well as stories of families using vitamin c to help their sick kids heal. This is literally just a drop in the buckets as far as benefits etc.
