Thanks for sharing your interest and experience, Wendy.  I
appreciate your positive feedback.  

FYI, several thousand mg of pure ascorbic acid taken hourly
for 24 hours at first notice of any cold symptoms will work
even faster to eradicate the cold before it gets any kind of
foothold.  This also applies to animals, as I give mine both
oral vitamin C daily and subcutaneous vitamin C injections
at the first sign of a sneeze or sniffle, which is now rare.
It is virtually impossible to take too much or give them too

Interestingly, from a bowel standpoint the body can tolerate
(and needs) thousands more milligrams of vitamin C when
under stress from illness.  The minimum daily intake of
vitamin C for prevention of illness and heart disease is
3,000 mg, according to Linus Pauling, so it's easy to see
why there is so much illness in this country when the RDA
for C is only 70 mg.  Most animals (except cats and dogs)
make nearly 10,000 mg of vitamin C daily in the liver, while
humans make none, and cats and dogs make only the human
equivalent of 2800 mg daily.  I had a severe rotator cuff
tear last year that would put me on the ground writing in
pain until it dawned on me that I should be taking three
times the amount of vitamin C that I was 

It is important to note that the best kind of vitamin C to
take for this purpose is pure ascorbic acid in powder form
without excipients, preservatives, or fillers.  Tablet
vitamin C is really only intended to be taken at the levels
written on the bottle because of these additives and it is
really not safe to take drugstore vitamin C at the high
levels that Pauling recommended as required by the human
body on a daily basis for collagen synthesis and protection
from viruses and heart disease.  Also, the buffered forms of
vitamin C (Ester C, sodium ascorbate, calcium ascorbate,
magnesium ascorbate, etc.) are not nearly as potent or
effective orally as ascorbic acid.

Before my work in this area I had a cold every month all
winter long.  I have now had only one cold in the past 10
years and that was only because I was away from home and
without my C.  Despite exposure to others with colds, flus,
etc., including my children who don't always want to take
their C, I have never come down with any of it, and when I
feel like I might be, I start dosing C by the thousands of
mg each hour and it always works.  The health we have seen
in the past 10 years has certainly made me understand and
appreciate Linus Pauling's expression, "Never be without
your C, not even for a single day."  Truly, I could not
survive without it, nor could the animals in my care.
