Treatment For Swine Flu
Vitamin C Cures Swine Flu : From the Documentary ’60 Minutes’, Channel 3, Television New Zealand, Wednesday, 15th September, 2010.
First of all, a big thankyou to the presenters of Channel 3 ’60 Minutes’, Mike McRoberts, and all the others, for running this show. Getting the information ‘out there’ is what it’s all about. Without shows such as this one, many of us would be none the wiser.
Thank God that we do have some very good and intelligent people such as Professor Brighthope in the medical profession – Doctors who are open to the use of Vitamin C and other ‘unorthodox’ treatments for disease. However, the work of these enlightened doctors is often undermined by other closed-minded doctors in the profession, and by the design of drug companies who fund research, and control the drug market, as we shall see.
The effect of this close-mindedness means that people are being robbed of life by the health authorities instead of being assisted to recover and live. This goes against the Hippocratic oath which insists that a doctor should have it in his heart to do his UTMOST to value, protect and save life wherever he can.
Professor Brighthope is a Vitamin C specialist, an Australian doctor. He was interviewed on ‘60 Minutes’ last night. He was very much in support of using Vitamin C to treat swine flu and made some very pertinent comments on just why New Zealand hospitals are avoiding the use of Vitamin C, and are refusing to acknowledge its value. He expressed his concern, and made the comment: ‘people are dying because of the attitude of doctors’.
Professor Brighthope was emphatic that:
- ‘People don’t die of swine flu – they die of Vitamin C deficiency.’
’60 Minutes’ covered the story about a month ago, of a man who miraculously recovered from swine flu after being given intravenous megadoses of Vitamin C.
Alan Smith has survived to tell the tale, but only because his family were boxers who didn’t give up the fight: Auckland Hospital doctors had stated that Alan’s life support system should be turned off, because there was nothing more that they could do to save his life from swine flu.
Alan Smith’s family requested that Vitamin C be given to him, as a last ditch effort to try and save his life. The hospital authorities STILL REFUSED. One has to wonder just why they were so keen NOT to administer the Vitamin C, as, at this stage, there was OBVIOUSLY nothing to lose.
Thankfully, Alan survived because of his family’s determination to give him Vitamin C, and because the authorities took fright and backed down when the family threatened to sue.
A New Zealand doctor on the programme last night gave an extremely lame defence of why Vitamin C should NOT be given. He said that they did not want to give Vitamin C to swine flu victims because they ‘have no proof that it works, and that Vitamin C can be harmful’. Just how ridiculous is that.
This statement is not only ridiculous, it is untrue: as Doctor Brighthope said, Vitamin C is one of the most researched products in the world, and it IS effective in treating swine flu.
The New Zealand doctor stated that not enough research had been done into the use of Vitamin C for hospitals to ever use it…… Wrong, we know. Otago University in Christchurch, New Zealand, has come up with research results which would seem to support the use of Vitamin C in treating cancer…………. But the reporter asked him who funds the research – was it the drug companies? “Yes”, he said, “It was the drug companies.” …….A very meaningful pause ensued, and my guess was that he immediately rued having made that comment.
There is just no reason NOT to use Vitamin C: In Alan’s case, if the doctors were that convinced that Alan was about to die, and were about to remove the life support system, then there was obviously nothing to lose: The risk of Vitamin C causing any harm would not have been a serious consideration. Yet the medics still refused the treatment of Vitamin C, saying that ‘there was no proof’. They should not have resisted giving Vitamin C, and had no grounds to prohibit its use.
Bob Goodwin was not so lucky. Bob was being treated for swine flu in North Shore Hospital. His family, too, tried to get Vitamin C administered to treat swine flu, but were not successful in convincing the hospital to try it until it was too late.
The hospital had refused to give Vitamin C, saying that Vitamin C could cause kidney failure. Meanwhile, Bob suffered kidney failure anyway from the effects of swine flu. The authorities came around to pull out the life support system. Bob’s son managed, at that late stage, to get the hospital to administer Vitamin C, but it was too late in Bob’s case, for Vitamin C to have any effect.
A similar block was put up to the family of a 36 year old woman who was recently in the Intensive Care Unit at Auckland hospital. The family was told adamantly that:
- ”There will be no circumstance where Vitamin C will be administered’.
This poor girl died from swine flu at the hands of the medical profession who refused her a treatment which has been known to work.
In Australia, at St Vincent’s hospital in Sydney, a 20 year old girl, Laura Clarke, was treated recently for swine flu. Her family had heard about the success of Alan Smith’s case, tracked down his family in New Zealand, and from there, proceeded to Vitamin C specialist Professor Ian Brighthope for help.
The Sydney hospital agreed. Laura’s lungs cleared and began to function normally after being given Vitamin C. However, the hospital took her off the Vitamin C treatment, against Doctor Brighthope’s advice. They also took her off the life support system. Laura died.
Note: Please read the comments below from Andrew, who was a friend of Laura’s. Andrew points out that St Vincent’s hospital acted in accordance with the family’s wishes. My condolences to you and the family, Andrew.
Lawyer May Chen who is working on the legality of some of these hospital decisions said:
- Vitamin C in high doses is efficacious………Vitamin C treatment has a long pedigree to it…….
Professor Brighthope said that
- ‘It is absolute neglect to not allow, or prohibit, the use of Vitamin C for swine flu’…..He is horrified that this ban continues in New Zealand hospitals and appalled that they won’t try it.
IN FAVOUR Of VITAMIN C: Vitamin C Specialist Professor Brighthope has used Vitamin C effectively in many cases of disease in hospitals and clinics. He stated that the dose needs to be a large one, and that megadoses of at least 50,000 mg were often used.
To the comment made by the New Zealand ‘expert’ who said that “There is no proof that Vitamin C works’, – the old drug company-derived jargon which is aimed at influencing all flappable minds in order to hold tight their control, Professor Brighthope advised New Zealand doctors to:
- “READ. There is PLENTY of evidence….The libraries are full of good literature on it.”
