Curing the Incurable [BOOK REVIEW]
Curing The Incurable - Book Review
Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases and Toxins.
My interest in vitamin C was sparked during the summer of 2018, while getting a sports massage my masseuse was telling me how he took 'mega doses' of vitamin C for hay-fever.
I have no idea really why that was so interesting to me, I think the fact that this was an expert in the human body sharing a practice that they personally do that goes against (or at least not with) the standard medical advice. I was intrigued and had to learn more.
After a bit of Youtubing I was led to this book:
Curing the Incurable essentially documents how vitamin C has been used throughout recent history to cure, revert, prevent an incredible amount of illnesses and disease.
My initial thoughts are either this book is fundamentally untrue and 'made up' or that it's absolutely insane that no medical organisation has followed up on these findings.
It's verging on criminal that such an allegedly successful, cheap and widely accessible treatment is not being pushed into the mainstream.
The bulk of the book focuses around MD Fredrick R. Klenner, who was a pioneer of vitamin C treatment and successfully treated many of his patients with it.
One of his biggest claims to fame is curing 60 out of 60 polio patients using vitamin C (Yes Polio, the one that has no known cure).
I am not someone who regularly reads any sort of medical journal or would find this a particularly interesting or palatable thing to do. I must admit that I skim read through some of the chapters but I don't think this is much of a problem with this sort of book. Essentially it is a list of viruses and diseases that vitamin C treats or cures based on a study or recorded treatment.
Should I start eating more vitamin C then?
Well, it's not quite that simple. One of the key discoveries in the book is that you can only absorb a certain amount of vitamin C orally and in many cases the Vitamin C was administrated intravenously and Dr Klenner repeatedly says how method and dosage are crucial.
To conclude, this was a fascinating book just to get a glimpse into the power of vitamin C. I mean, it's quite a specific thing to be interested in but for me it was just a glimpse into understanding that knowledge of nutrition and medicine is not as well understood as it may seem on the surface.
