Vitamin C Research

Actual cases of flu, mono, lyme disease and more treated with intravenous vitamin C.

Commentary by Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD

(OMNS Sept 3, 2014) My ongoing relationship with vitamin C now spans a full 20 years, when I first met Dr. Hal Huggins, a pioneering dentist who opened my eyes to a wide array of clinical approaches to different diseases with hitherto unheard-of clinical results at his clinic in Colorado Springs. I can honestly say that my first visit to his clinic began the most meaningful part of my medical education. Nothing has been the same since. My office where I practiced adult cardiology ended up being shuttered shortly after that first visit. And I have never looked back.

Vitamins for Insulin Resistance

Insulin resistance can be reversed by treating the underlying causes. Don't ignore the hard truth about insulin resistance.

When Your Doctor Says “You’re Insulin Resistant”

Insulin is a hormone that helps your body use food for energy. Sugars and starches are broken down in the intestines and are converted into glucose. Insulin carries glucose into cells so that it can be used for energy. If your body is producing more insulin to keep up with the glucose demands of the body, your blood sugar levels may appear fine, but your insulin levels will be high. This indicates that you are insulin resistant.

Stop Memory Loss and Neurological Diseases with Diet, Vitamins and Supplements

New studies show that your diet can have a drastic effect on your brain. As we age, myelin sheaths and connective tissues of the brain are broken down.

Is MSG Making You Fat and Sick?

That innocent looking side of ranch could give you a migraine, seizures, heart disease, diabetes, and nerve damage. Plus you'll be fighting an addiction to food additives that makes you always want to eat something unhealthy.

Read your food labels. All refined foods, processed foods, anything hydrolyzed, glutamate ingredients, anything autolyzed, soy protein, whey protein, “anything” protein, caseinates, gelatin, and more, contain free radicals in the form of “glutamic acid”, which is processed MSG (monosodium glutamate). The list of ingredient names that are essentially disguised MSG goes on and on.

What You Should Know About Your Migraines, Vitamin C Levels, and Your Hormones.

Stress Hormones

Stress hormones can trigger headaches and migraines. Vitamin C helps to produce stress-relieving hormones and can be used as a preventative measure. Studies on people and animals who were given vitamin C, show that the stress hormone cortisol was drastically lower than in people and animals not given the supplement. This remained true even when they were repeatedly put under very stressful situations. Elevated blood pressure is also a migraine trigger for many. These tests also showed that blood pressure was lower in the vitamin C group.
