Vitamin C Cures Disease but Doctors and Pharmaceutical Companies Do Not Want You to Know This
Health Impact News Editor Comments
Dr. Suzanne Humphries has given what is the most comprehensive and informative lecture on vitamin C that I have ever heard. The entire lecture can be watched below. Please be informed about vitamin C, and how powerful this natural vitamin can be in treating disease. If everyone learned about the health properties of vitamin C and used it accordingly, it would put a serious dent into the sales of patented pharmaceutical products.

The Swedish Society for Orthomolecular Medicine introduced Dr. Suzanne Humphries to lecture on the practical use of Vitamin C in Stockholm, Sweden 2014.
Although Dr. Humphries primary interest is in the study of vaccinations, she has realized that,
“Much of what I have learned in my medical education is lacking in details on how to support the biology of the human being.”
“When people are just a little bit sick or when they are healthy, it can be very helpful to support the chemistry of the body using earth products that were put here for us and not necessarily the ones the drug companies have made for us.”
Dr. Humphries states that since she has learned to use Vitamin C, not only has her own health become extraordinarily better, but her prescription writing has gone down significantly and the health of her patients has improved.
Dispelling Myths Regarding the “Dangers” of Vitamin C
Dr. Humphries states that there is a lot of mythology in the medical field regarding vitamin C. The fact that vitamin C is necessary to prevent scurvy, but that doses over 1000 mg are dangerous, wasteful and just gives you “expensive urine,” is a myth.
Scurvy is a disease that occurs if you have a severe lack of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in your diet, causing anemia, gum disease and skin hemorrhages. Conventional doctors may say that the body becomes saturated if consumers take more than 150 mg a day. In addition, that in large doses vitamin C can cause kidney stones.
We hear that natural whole vitamin C is always the best source, food is always the best source, and the statement that people with illnesses can get enough ascorbate (vitamin C) from food.
None of these myths we hear are true or have ever been proven clinically or scientifically according to Dr. Humphries and medical literature.
The Recommended Daily Allowance of Vitamin C is to Prevent Scurvy, Not Promote Optimal Health
Dr. Humphries explains,
“Animals use four sequential liver enzymes to convert glucose into L-Ascorbic Acid. This is the magic chemical that has so many functions in our body that enhance our health and can be very lifesaving in certain situations, and can be consumed very rapidly during illness.”
The fourth enzyme is missing from human beings as well as some other animals (bats, guinea pigs and some primates). This means that human beings are dependent on the food source in order to have this life saving nutrient.
There are animals that make their own vitamin C, for example, a cow makes 18 mg/kg/day, daily total of 12,000 mg a day plus food. Another animal she discusses is cats, who make 20 to 40 mg/kg/day, daily total of 180 mg a day.
The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for a person is half of that amount. The animals that rely on their food source, such as a gorilla, the intake is 30 mg/kg/day for 4,500 mg per day. The guinea pig also does not make their own vitamin C, and intake is 33 mg/kg/day for 30 mg per day.
Dr. Humphries has learned some interesting facts about goats. When goats are healthy, they produce 185 mg/kg/day (13,000 mg/day) and when sick or stressed, up to 1400 mg/kg/day (100,000 mg/day).
A veterinarian was on the farm in New Zealand where Dr. Humphries is seen in this picture, and he volunteered that goats hardly ever get sick.
Dr. Humphries states,
“I make none of my own vitamin C and I am told that I only need 75 mg/day or 1.2 mg/kg/day. This is a gross underestimation of what we should take every day. The science behind this estimate is flawed.”
The RDA for men is 90 mg/day and for women is 75 mg/day. When scientists attempted to change the RDA of vitamin C to 200 a day, it was rejected by the authorities according to Dr. Humphries.
When a person develops an illness, the vitamin C reserves can be depleted very quickly. Dr. Humphries stresses that the RDA levels for vitamin C are to prevent scurvy, not promote optimal health.
Study Shows That Nearly One in Five People Have a Plasma Vitamin C Concentration Compatible with Scurvy
Dr. Humphries found a study in Canada showing levels of vitamin C in the blood. In this study, greater than 28.4 micro mol/L is considered normal. According to this study there are approximately 16 percent of people who have subnormal levels in their blood and 84 percent are normal:
The difference in patients that are in the hospital and ill, is that only 21 percent are normal by what Dr. Humphries exclaims is,
“a very low standard of normal.”
The graph on the picture above shows hospitalized patients as the black bars and outpatients are represented by the clear bars. Dr. Humphries points out that both groups have people that are 100 or 125, she believes that this is a better range for us to live in, either with a high diet of this nutrient or repeated doses.
She states that 24 percent of the people that were admitted into the hospital were taking vitamins and the doctors discontinued most of them.
The conclusion of this study was that,
“Nearly one in five had a plasma vitamin C concentration compatible with scurvy.”
Dr. Humphries questions,
“If conventional doctors knew about this would they do anything different?”
There are Some Physicians Who Would Rather Stand by and See Their Patients Die Than Use Ascorbic Acid
Dr. Humphries states that we are living with this myth that we do not need to look at vitamin C levels in sick people and we don’t need to supplement.
Dr. Frederick R. Klenner was one of the pioneers of using ascorbic acid in high doses and cured many patients with horrible diseases in the 1950’s, including polio and a black widow spider bite (documented in The Black Widow Spider: Case History. Tri-State Med J, Dec 1957, Vol5, No 10, pp 15-18).
Dr. Humphries states that in this case history Dr. Klenner says,
“…there are some physicians who would stand by and see their patient die rather than use ascorbic acid – because in their finite minds, it exists only as a vitamin.”
Dr. Humphries discusses a study from New Zealand with healthy adult males around 30 years old. These males offered to do a muscle biopsy to measure the vitamin C levels. Initially, they measured the men’s blood levels which were on the low end, around 30 to 40 Mol/L. They were then told to consume a diet low in vitamin C and stop supplements, and the levels dropped considerably in five weeks almost to levels of scurvy.
Next, half of the men were told to eat half a kiwi a day and the other half two kiwi’s a day. The levels of both groups were raised considerably, but the men who ate two kiwi’s a day, had levels that rose up to 70 Mol/L.
