The following is a VERY lengthy post. It contains some specific protocols regarding protecting yourself against Ebola.
I know there are several people who I generally have high respect for that are saying the entire Ebola issue is a false flag. Frankly, I wish I believed that about this one. If it is, I will be really happy! However, the bottom line is that there has been a definite interest in reducing the population for years. What better way to do it and save those bullets for when you really need them? The governments can just claim incompetence and negligence as their cover story. After all, that is largely truthful.
Again, this is lengthy, but maybe really important info. And of course, the FDA doesn’t recognize any of this as helpful or potentially effective. You’ll have to wait for Bill Gate’s vaccine if you want their stamp of approval on anything.

In the recent WA Post a clue to the cure was mentioned
“Re-hydration and nutrition can only help keep patients alive long
enough for their body to develop antibodies to fight the virus back.”
Confirming what we have been working on, but of course that was
not the focus of the article, instead it was the SHUNNING.
To me the REAL SHUNNING is the TRUTH ABOUT DISEASE – That
people who live even reasonably healthy lives and avoid most well
known transmission risky behaviors are DOING FINE
Now with the new HEALTH TREATMENT LIST we know that it may
be very close to curing even the afflicted and not just preventative.
I contacted a group in Sierra Leone today and also toured the Hospital

the other operates in the most scary secretive fashion beyond Sci FI

races to conclusions but lets just say it scary beyond belief. The nice
folks I contacted are hopefully going to tell me their programs and we
can share info etc. Stay tuned !
I also hope to post a list of news links as a briefing and how this
developed and continues to spread due to all sorts of factors, which
COULD BE FIXED. There is simply no need for this to continue now
that we know the score. but you can bet its not over yet by a long
shot the good guys are not running things ya know
There is a radical treatment rather recently attempted to save the
life of a rabies virus patient (it worked). Previously, before this last
ditch attempt called the “Milwaukee Protocol” was employed, rabies was
100% deadly with or without treatment once it crossed the blood brain
barrier – no known survivors.
They basically put the patient in an induced coma and pumped her full
of antivirals, namely, Ketamine (yes it seems to also have anti-viral
properties which is interesting) and Amantadine derived from the Queen
of the Mushrooms – (Amanita muscaria).
Treatment schedule for Ebola
1. an extensive list spanning from standard support (O2, hydration,
nutrition, anti-pain, antibiotics to fight off bacterial supra-infections, etc)

Can Vitamin C Cure Ebola?Commentary
by Steve Hickey PhD, Hilary Roberts PhD, and Damien Downing
(OMNS Aug 20, 2014) If there were a drug that worked on Ebola you
should use it. There isn’t. There is only vitamin C. But you must be
extremely careful what you believe, because, as it ever was, the
Internet is full of dangerous loonies. For coming up to a decade now
the OMNS has reported on nutritional therapies; we leave the medical
politics to one side and work from the facts. Here are the facts about
vitamin C and Ebola.
1. Taking a gram or so of day of vitamin C won’t protect you against
anything except acute scurvy; it doesn’t matter whether the vitamin
is liposomal, nano-particles, or even gold-plated. Beware of websites,
companies, and Youtube clips making wild and unsubstantiated claims
about the efficacy of vitamin C.
2. Clinical reports suggest that taking vitamin C almost to bowel
tolerance every day (in divided doses) will help to protect you against
all viruses. Reports by independent physicians have been consistent for
decades. However, the doctors also stipulated most emphatically that
the dose and the way you take it must be right – or it will not work.
There is no direct placebo controlled “evidence” that massive doses of
vitamin C will work on Ebola, and nobody would volunteer to take part
in that study.
But massive doses are reported to have helped against every virus it
has been pitched against. This includes Polio, Dengue and AIDS, and it
even makes vaccination work better. In the 1980s when no other
treatment was available it was reported that full blown AIDS could be
reversed and the patient brought back to reasonable health.[i,ii]
At risk or worried about Ebola?
This is what you should do. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is the primary antioxidant in the diet. Most people do not
take enough to be healthy. While this is true of many nutrients, vitamin
C is a special case. Ignore governments telling you that you only need
about 100 mg a day and can get this amount from food. The required
amount of vitamin C varies your state of health. A normal adult in
perfect health may need only a small intake, say 500 mg per day, but
more is needed when someone is even slightly under the weather.
Similarly, to prevent illness, the intake needs to be increased.
The intake for an otherwise healthy person to have a reasonable
chance of avoiding a common cold is in the region of 8-10 grams
(8,000-10,000 mg) a day. This is about ten times what corporate
medicine has tested in their trials on vitamin C and the common cold.
Ten grams (10,000 mg) is the minimum pharmacological intake; it may
help if you have a slight sore throat but more (much more) may be
To get rid of a common cold, you may need anything from 20 to 60
grams (60,000 mg) a day. With influenza the need might be for 100
grams (100,000 mg) a day. Since it varies from person to person, and
from illness to illness, the only way to find out is to experiment for
The problem with oral intakes is that healthy people do not absorb
vitamin C well due to something Dr Robert Cathcart called bowel
tolerance. [iii] Take too much of the vitamin in a single dose and it will
cause loose stools. In good health, a person might be able to take a
couple of grams at a time without this problem. Strangely, when a
person becomes sick they can take far more without this side effect: as
much as 20-100+ grams a day, in divided doses. [iv]
High dose vitamin C has a short half-life in the body. The half-life is
the time for the level in the blood plasma to fall back to half its
concentration. Until recently, some people claimed that the half-life of
vitamin C was several weeks. We have shown that this long half-life
applies only to very low doses.[v] By contrast, the half-life for high blood
levels is only half an hour. This short half-life means that for high dose
vitamin C the period between doses needs to be short – a few hours at
The aim is to achieve dynamic flow, to get vitamin C flowing continuously
through the body. Dynamic flow requires multiple high doses taken
throughout the day. When separated in time, each dose is absorbed
independently. Two doses of 3 grams, taken 12 hours apart, are absorbed
better than 6 grams taken all at once. Multiple large doses, say 3 grams
four times a day, produce a steady flow of the vitamin from the gut, into
the bloodstream and out, via the urine. Some of the intake is not
absorbed into the blood and stays in the gut, as a reserve against the
early onset of illness. As illness begins, the body pulls in this “excess”
to help fight the virus.
The idea behind dynamic flow is that the body is kept in a reduced
(antioxidant) state, using high doses. There is always vitamin C available,
to refresh the body and other antioxidants. Each vitamin C molecule
(ascorbic acid) has two antioxidant electrons, which it can donate to
protect the body. It then becomes oxidised to dehydroascorbate (DHA).
This oxidized molecule is then excreted, so the body has gained two
antioxidant electrons. The kidneys reabsorb vitamin C, but not DHA; the
vitamin C molecule is absorbed, used up, and then the oxidized form is
thrown out with the rubbish.
The effectiveness of vitamin C is not directly proportional to the dose;
it is non-linear. There is a threshold above which vitamin C becomes
highly effective. Below this level, the effect is small; above it, the effect
is dramatic. The problem is that no-one can tell you in advance what
intake of vitamin C you need. The solution is to take more – more than
you think necessary, more than you consider reasonable. The mantra is
dose, dose, dose.
Types of Vitamin C
Straightforward, low cost ascorbic acid is the preferred form of s
upplement. Vendors may try to sell you “better absorbed” forms with
minerals or salts such as sodium, potassium or calcium ascorbate, and
so on. These are irrelevant, if not counterproductive, for high intakes.
It is worth noting the following:
1. Timing is more important than form. Two large doses of ascorbic
acid taken a little time apart are better absorbed than a single dose
of mineral ascorbate.
2. Mineral ascorbates are salts and do not carry the same number of
antioxidant electrons. Ascorbic acid has two electrons to donate while
a salt typically has only one. With high doses, the “improved” forms
are thus only about half as effective. This is consistent with reports
that mineral forms are correspondingly ineffective in combating illness.
3. Ascorbic acid is a weak acid, much weaker than the hydrochloric acid
in the stomach. Mineral ascorbates may be better tolerated, as they
make the stomach more alkaline than ascorbic acid. However, an
alkaline stomach is not a good idea – there are reasons the body
secretes hydrochloric acid into the stomach, including preventing
Furthermore, if you are coming down with a haemorrhagic viral infection,
mild discomfort will not be something of great concern.
4. For high intakes, capsules of ascorbic acid are preferable to tablets.
This is because tablets are packed with fillers and it is not wise to take
massive doses of these chemicals. Check the ingredients – you want to
take ascorbic acid and very little else. Bioflavonoids are alright, and
the capsules may be made with gelatine or a vegetarian equivalent.
5. The cheapest way to take ascorbic acid is as powder, dissolved in
water. If you do this, use a straw to avoid it getting on the tooth
enamel, as it is slightly acidic. You will need a set of accurate
electronic scales to monitor the dose. If you do not weigh it carefully,
it will be difficult to keep close to bowel tolerance.
Intravenous Vitamin C
Ideally, infected people would be given a continuous intravenous (IV)
infusion of massive doses of vitamin C (sodium ascorbate is preferred
as ascorbic acid is irritant to veins).
1. People who are sufficiently ill will not be able to take vitamin C by
2. IV provides the highest possible blood levels
3. IV means continuous drip, not an injection (short half-life)
Unless you are a medical professional who can treat yourself and your
family, or are exceptionally rich, IV ascorbate will not be an option in
an Ebola outbreak.
Rectal Vitamin C
Rectal administration of sodium ascorbate is a method that can be
used in emergencies, and in developing world circumstances, when IV
is unavailable or unsuitable. Nurses can quickly be trained to mix 15-30
grams of sodium ascorbate in 250-500 ml clean water, and give it by
enema. It can be safely and effectively used in children. An enema also
removes from the bowel material that may be challenging. This has been
done successfully with aboriginal people in the Australian outback.
In healthy people, liposomes help the absorption of oral vitamin C; in
some circumstances this is also true for sick people. However, we need
to dispel some popular myths.
In a healthy person, higher blood levels (about 600 microM/L) can be
achieved using liposomal vitamin C compared with standard ascorbic
acid (about 250 microM/L). We were the first to demonstrate this fact
experimentally.[vi] However, the two absorption methods are different
and if both are used together the resultant plasma levels are additive
(something like 600 + 250 = 850 microM/L). Since ascorbic acid is
much cheaper than liposomal vitamin C, it is cost effective for a
healthy person to start with ascorbic acid and top up with liposomes
When a person becomes ill they can absorb massive doses of standard
ascorbic acid, using the dynamic flow approach. So if you are sick,
taking a gram of liposomal vitamin C instead of a gram of cheap
ascorbic acid will provide little extra benefit. Both will be well
absorbed, and the liposome contains sodium ascorbate which is less
effective. Liposomes only provide added benefit once the sick person
has approached bowel tolerance levels, using standard ascorbic acid.
Liposomal vitamin C is NOT more effective than IV for fighting acute
infections. This suggestion is unscientific and unsupported by data.
We prefer liposomes for chronic infections and cancer, but this does
not extend to acute illness. There is also a lot of hype around the fact
that liposomes can be absorbed directly into cells. Many liposomes
are absorbed from the gut and pass into the liver, where they are
stored and the vitamin C released. Liposomes may also float around
in the bloodstream, lymph nodes, and so on, waiting to release their
contents or be taken up by cells. But the cells that take up the
liposomes are not necessarily those that are most in need of vitamin
C. Moreover cells may suffer side effects; liposomes are basically
nanotechnology and have additional theoretical issues.
To have a reasonable chance of avoiding a major viral infection, a
daily intake of at least 10 grams of ascorbic acid is needed. The idea
is to start low, taking say 500 -1,000 mg four times a day. Build up the
intake to close to bowel tolerance; increased wind and large soft stools
will occur before diarrhea signals that bowel tolerance has been
exceeded. At this stage, back off the dose a little, to a reasonably
At the first hint of an infection – feeling unwell, itchy throat, fatigue,
and so on – take more ascorbic acid. If the hint of impending sickness
is mild, take perhaps 5 grams every half hour or even more frequently.
Anything more than a hint of infection, take as large a dose as you
feel could be tolerated and follow this by taking 5 grams every half
hour. The rule is to take as much as you can without going over the
tolerated level: you will probably be taking too little, even though you
are trying hard to take a massive dose.
If you are already in dynamic flow and want extra protection, then
add liposomal vitamin C. Take it at the same intervals as the ascorbic
acid; that is several times a day. The limit is once again bowel
tolerance – take too much and it will give you loose stools. This will
provide the maximum preventive effect, for the lowest cost.
We assume that you are not a medical professional and do not have
access to IV ascorbate. However, if IV sodium ascorbate is available,
it should be given slowly and as continuously as possible. For children,
enemas may be the most practical method (we hope to publish
practical instructions for this soon). Medical professionals can deal
with such things with little difficulty, but others may do more harm
The first important thing is to start the treatment early. The longer a
person waits after the initial symptoms, the less effective the
treatment will be. Also if the illness is allowed to develop the sick
person may become unable to take anything orally.
Once again, the idea is to get dynamic flow going with as much
ascorbic acid as can be tolerated. In this case, the doses are massive.
Five to ten grams every half hour, through the day, will provide 120
to 240 grams a day. Even at this high intake, the blood plasma levels
may be low or undetectable; at most 250 microM/L will be achieved.
So the question then becomes how much additional liposomal vitamin
C the patient can tolerate.
A practical approach would be to start with 5 grams of ascorbic acid
and a similar amount of liposomal vitamin C in very frequent doses.
Remember the key is dose, dose, dose. More vitamin C!
How it Works
The mechanism of action of high dose vitamin C is known and
understood. In normal healthy tissues it acts as an antioxidant.
In other tissues, it generates hydrogen peroxide, the chemical that
platinum blondes use to bleach their hair. This happens in sick and
inflamed tissues, for example in a malignant tumour. The process is
typically a form of Fenton reaction, generating free radicals. The
oxidation and free radicals arising from the hydrogen peroxide kill
bacteria and inactivate viruses. In other words, vitamin C acts as a
targeted bleach and antiseptic.
Vitamin C is unique, because it has low toxicity and can be taken
safely in massive amounts. Other antioxidants and supplements will not
have a similar effect. Do not be confused and think that Echinacea, for
example, will help. Yes, there may be supplements and herbs that
provide a little immune system support, but this is Ebola we are talking
about – get real!
Note, vitamin C is not some magical antitoxin; this idea is a metaphor.
A disease such as Ebola is not caused by toxins that are inactivated by
vitamin C. Free radicals are not toxins. Oxidants are not toxins. Vitamin
C nearly always acts by transferring electrons, as an oxidant or
antioxidant. It is just basic chemistry. Also, it does not matter if you
have poor dental hygiene, this will hardly affect how massive intakes
of vitamin C tackle an acute viral infection.
Sugar interferes with the uptake of vitamin C. If you are using vitamin
C to combat a viral infection do not eat any sugar or carbohydrates
(long chain sugars) or the vitamin C will not be absorbed properly. We
stress that this means no sugar and no carbs, at all.
Smoking releases enormous amounts of oxidants and free radicals
into the bloodstream. The vitamin C will expend itself, trying to mop
up the chemicals from the smoking. We have no moral objections to
people smoking: it is a personal choice. However, smoking will hinder
even massive doses of vitamin C from preventing infection. Once
infected with Ebola, smoking will stop the vitamin C from keeping you
It is sensible also to supplement with a little chelated magnesium,
such as magnesium citrate, which helps overcome the (largely
theoretical) risk of kidney stones.
The reaction that generates hydrogen peroxide in sick tissues can be
enhanced a little by taking selenium with the vitamin C. A little caution
is needed as too much selenium will cause diarrhoea, fatigue, garlic
breath, and hair and nail loss; severe toxicity can have more severe
effects but is hard to achieve. Methylselenocysteine is a less toxic form
and this would be our choice. The normal intake is perhaps 100-200
micrograms (0.1-0.2 mg) a day; we would take 400 micrograms a day
during an epidemic and up this to 1,000 micrograms
(one milligram) a day, at the initial onset of symptoms. It is possible
to go up to 3 mg for short periods, with medical supervision.
Other supplements may be synergistic with vitamin C. Alpha-lipoic
acid can be taken at reasonably high levels reasonably safely. We
would take up to a gram or two a day (1,000-2,000 mg) in the short
term. Vitamin K also helps with blood clotting and is safe in the
recommended amounts – we would get the highest dose vitamin K2
supplement available. Note vitamin K is contraindicated in those with
clotting disease or those on blood thinners such as warfarin.
The only established side effects of ascorbate therapy are wind, loose
bowels and chronic good health. There are some contraindications;
people with kidney disease, iron overload disease, or
glucose-6-phosphatase deficiency should not immediately take high
doses of vitamin C. In the setting of an epidemic they can start as
we recommend but should increase more cautiously, with appropriate
Why Put This Out?
People need to know that vitamin C is an option for fighting Ebola, and
how it works. There is a great deal of misinformation, particularly on
the internet, both from vested interests and from “loonies”. Moreover,
in an Ebola epidemic vitamin C supplements may be hard to source.
This account is intended for intelligent adults, who can make their
own rational decisions and take responsibility for their health. We
strongly promote the idea that medicine should be based on rational
patients, rather than authoritarian doctors. Doctors are there to provide
the information for patients, to help them choose between available
options. This is information only – what you decide to do with it is up
In our opinion the use of vitamin C in Ebola is a no-brainer. Get the
illness and, it is said, you have at best a 50-50 chance of surviving
without vitamin C-based therapy. Corporate medicine has no effective
treatment. Furthermore, if a drug were available, it would be untested
and almost certainly unavailable to you, dear reader. Vitamin C is
considered safe and should do no harm. The cost of treatment is low.
The clinical reports of vitamin C in viral infection are that if you get
the dose right, you will survive. Vitamin C is known experimentally to
In the event, we hope people make rational decisions.
