Correcting the mutation that allows producing C

Our need for large amounts of supplemental vitamin C is a result of our lost ability to make vitamin C in our bodies from glucose like most animals. I discuss this on the Why take C page (Click on the Title to go there.)

Dear Sir,

Having discovered cinnamon is an ancient remedy for scurvy, I now take 6 to 10 teaspoons of powdered cinnamon daily for complete correction for our lost enzyme gulonolactone oxidase. Vitamin c test strips show full correction. It really works.

This is very intriguing, indeed!

Need for Vitamin C Pre-Op

From Cheryl, RN:

I am a registered nurse and believe strongly that Vitamin C can decrease post operative recovery time and pain. My daughter is scheduled to have a tonsillectomy on may 16 and I have been prepping her with mega c. The pre-op orders I just reviewed say that ALL vitamin and herbal supplements must be stopped 2 weeks prior to surgery.!!! ALL!!!! How ridiculous. While I understand there are some vitamins and minerals that increase bleeding times etc and should be stopped prophylactically, doesn't it seem this is a "CYA" tactic and not prudent by doctors as it would decrease the nutritional state of their patients pre operatively? What problem could Vitamin C cause for a surgical patient????/ Seems they are throwing the baby out with the bath water. I know of no reason why Vitamin C shouldn't be taken right up to and through surgery to promote rapid healing.

Preparing to go to the Hospital

This is a joke, but not entirely:

Lay nude on the front lawn and ask the weed man to probe you with his applicator.

Drink a quart of Sherwin-Williams Eggshell One-Coat Coverage Interior Flat White #2. Then have your child stuff his slinky down your throat.

Put a real estate agent's 'Open House' sign on your front yard and lie on your bed dressed in a paper napkin with straws stuck up your nose.

Put your hand down the garbage disposal while practicing your smile and repeating: "mild discomfort."

Set your alarm to go off every ten minutes from ten PM to seven AM, at which times you will alternately puncture your wrist with a Craftsman (squarehead) screwdriver and stab yourself with a knitting needle.

Remove all actual food from the house.

New Message Board

I was very fond of my old message board. I had so much trouble with it recently, that I have decided to move into new territory. Welcome to its replacement C: The Blog
