For those of you who saw my earlier post about my kitten Angelica and have wondered how vitamin C could have possibly saved her from FIP, I thought that perhaps the information below would help to explain it and convince others to try this highly effective and completely benign treatment for infections and viruses in their own cats.
According to the pioneer in vitamin C research Dr. Fred Klenner, vitamin C intravenously works as an oxidizing agent in massive amounts, i.e., 5-150 grams, for certain pathological conditions), and neutralizes toxins, viruses and histamine. The more serious the condition, the more C is required. The ascorbic acid enters all cells and proceeds to take up the protein coats being manufactured by the virus nucleic acid, thus preventing the assembly of new virus units. Cells expand, rupture and die, but there are no virus particles available to enter and infect new cells. If a virus has invaded a cell, the Vitamin C contributes to its breakdown to adenosine deaminase, which converts adenosine to inosine. Purines are formed which are catabolized (broken down) and cannot be used to make more virus nucleic acid. Viral nucleic acid has a protein coat which protects this parasite as it rides the blood or lymph highway to gain specific cell entry. It is possible that if the ascorbic acid can remove that protective protein coat in the blood stream or in the cells, the white cell phagocytes and immune globulin could then neutralize these vulnerable virus particles. Ascorbic acid also joins with the available virus protein, making a new macromolecule which acts as the repressor factor (interferon?) and multiplication of new virus bodies is inhibited. Anyway, Angelica is home tonight - no fever, eating like a pig, and playing with her remaining brother Tommy. Today was her last drip and tonight you would never know she had been sick. FINALLY with the help of my progressive and most helpful vet were able to save one of our cats thanks to the miracle of vitamin C! If only I had gotten Chuckie on the drip sooner he would likely still be alive. It breaks my heart to see my remaining two kittens playing together now without Chuckie, though I will always smile and think of him when I look at our miracle girl Angelica, for he paid the ultimate price to save his sister. Because of Chuckie I knew just what to do and what NOT to do to save Angelica, so he did not die in vain. Anyway, I thought this might help clarify why and how the intravenous vitamin C works on these viruses and pathogens. Few cats ever survive FIP but thanks to Wendell Belfield, DVM, Linus Pauling and the great vitamin C pioneers before them, mine did, and I will be forever grateful. :-) If you need more information or have questions about Angelica's treatment, feel free to ask.
