Read This Controversial Article And Find Out More About High-Dose Vitamin C

What amazes me the most about the information I’m sharing with you is that it’s not modern research!

The information is from the ’70s and the ’80s… and it works!

Yet, high-dose vitamin C is not common health practice! Why?

High-dose IV vitamin C therapy is available in alternative medical facilities. Doctors who practice orthomolecular medicine also recommend high vitamin C dosing.

But you really don’t hear much about people taking high-dose vitamin C orally at home to help the body’s natural healing process and prevent disease.

It’s natural, easy and inexpensive. I’ve tried it myself, and it works. I hope it helps you just as much!

Dr. Cathcart’s Amazing Vitamin C Study

The link below is to a study by Robert F. Cathcart, III, M.D., published in ORTHOMOLECULAR PSYCHIATRY, VOLUME 10, NUMBER 2, 1981, Pp. 125-132.

The article charts Dr. Cathcart’s experience utilizing vitamin C in large doses. The study extended over nine years and involved over 9,000 patients.

He shares info on vitamin C dosing for colds, flu, cancer, arthritis, and much more!

See Dr. Cathcart’s Study

The study was conducted in the 1970s, and the article was printed in the 1980s, but for some reason, the information never really reached much of the general public.

You will be astonished if you read through to the end of the article!

I hope the “secret” information helps you. If you give it a try, I would love to hear your results!

Why I Haven’t Been Sick in 10 Years

My passion is helping people and pets live longer, healthier, happier lives!

I’m sharing this information freely, hoping you and your pets can enjoy the same health and well-being I, my family, and pets have by using vitamin C.

I claim I haven’t been sick in 10 years in the title. Believe it or not, it’s true! I’ve been tired, stressed, and worn out… but I’ve never “caught” anything.

And, in my personal opinion, I owe it to eating right (or at least trying to!), daily exercise, good supplements, reducing my toxic load, and taking a maintenance dose of vitamin C every day.

At one point, I did get an abscessed tooth. I recalculated my bowel tolerance during the infection period, and my need for vitamin C was much higher. I continued with the bowel tolerance protocol, and in a few days, the abscess was gone.

As of the date of this article (it’s been a year and a half since the abscess), I’ve still not needed any dental work, even for the tooth that had abscessed!

My husband, Tim, uses high-dose vitamin C to help regulate his high blood pressure. He takes a tablespoon of sodium ascorbate vitamin C daily, just like I do.

2024 Update: I was exposed several times but did not catch COVID-19 in 2021. However, in 2022, I caught COVID-19. I continued high-dose vitamin C throughout (high-dose, four times daily) and applied diluted oregano essential to feet and pulse points four times daily. The fever and the majority of symptoms were gone in three days. I also experienced two weeks of loss of smell and taste, and several weeks of post-COVID fatigue. In 2023, I caught COVID-19 (variants) again twice, and both times, I experienced no illness aside from feeling a bit “off” and losing smell. I chose against vaccination but quarantined as recommended.

Read the Johns Hopkins University study on how vitamin C lowers blood pressure.

Below, I’ll share how I titrate to bowel tolerance for myself and my pets.

How to Titrate to Bowel Tolerance

I take sodium ascorbate vitamin C (sodium ascorbate powder) to bowel tolerance—every day. Below, I’ll explain how to start.

What you need is:

  • Sodium Ascorbate Vitamin C Powder
  • Some good water.

I toggle between the two brands listed below, using what’s on sale.

At the time of this article, the following are the most cost-effective, high-quality products I found:

I get the big kilo size because I give it to my entire family and all my pets (two dogs and four cats). For all of us, 1 kilo (2.2 lbs) lasts roughly a month. And nobody gets sick – Yay!

Once you have sodium ascorbate vitamin C, start with a small amount and gradually increase it at your own pace.


If you are on prescription medications, contact your physician before making any changes to your supplements.

If you’ve been medically advised to restrict sodium, you may need to use regular vitamin C instead of sodium ascorbate. Ask your doctor.

Some pharmaceuticals interact with Vitamin C.

Always double-check with your doctor before starting a new supplement!

Here’s How I Titrate to Bowel Tolerance

The first day, I took 1/4 teaspoon (1,000 mg) in the morning and 1/4 teaspoon in the evening, mixed in water.

**Note: For pets under 25 pounds, I start at 1/16 teaspoon in the morning and 1/16 tsp in the evening.

For cats, I just give a straight dose of 1/4 teaspoon in each feeding (twice daily). For small kittens, I give 1/8 teaspoon in food twice daily. If they don’t get a loose stool, then try 1/4 teaspoon twice daily. If 1/8 teaspoon gives the kitten loose stools, try giving only 1/16th teaspoon twice daily to start. When the stool is firm, up to 1/8. As the kitten grows, you can up the dose to the standard 1/4 teaspoon in food twice daily.

Of course, if you pet has a serious health condition, or cancer, you will want to titrate to bowel tolerance immediately.

Also, I put sodium ascorbate in their food, not water for pets.

On the second day, I added 1/4 teaspoon to each dose, so I took 1/2 teaspoon in the morning and 1/2 teaspoon in the evening.

I added 1/4 teaspoon to the morning and evening doses each day.

It’s really easy! All you have to do is mix the sodium ascorbate powder into a cup of distilled water, stirring it around until it dissolves. Then drink it. That’s all!

You can use any kind of water, but I prefer distilled water because it is 100% pure and contaminant-free.

Vitamin C can be taken at any time. Some people find it easiest to take it upon awakening, others with each meal, and some before going to bed at night. Just do whatever works best for you!

If you ever get abdominal discomfort like:

  • A rumbling stomach
  • Excessive gas
  • Diarrhea

Simply go back to the amount you reached before you encountered problems. Use this as your maintenance dose.

**Note: Sodium ascorbate vitamin C will give you good, regular, smooth bowel movements in roughly 30 minutes to an hour. This is normal!

My maintenance dose is 1 tablespoon (12,000 mg or 12 grams) in the morning.

If the tablespoon in the morning doesn’t create a bowel movement, I know I need more, and I take another tablespoon before I go to bed.

Now, to the general population, that seems like a huge amount of vitamin C.

The recommended daily allowance is 60 mg to 90 mg per day, with the upper “allowed dose” 2,000 mg per day.

I’m taking 12,000 mg per day on average daily.

Your family and friends might raise their eyebrows and call you crazy. Mine did a little at first, but now many also take high-dose vitamin C.

There is a lot more research available on the internet about the benefits of high-dose oral vitamin C. A good start is Linus Pauling Institute and

Normal Vitamin C Requirements

Most people tolerate 10-20 grams of vitamin C daily. Occasionally, people need 50 or even 100 grams to reach bowel tolerance.

If the body tolerates such a large amount, it means large amounts are needed.

For example, if you are coming down with any infection or virus, your body’s requirements for vitamin C dramatically increase.

At the first sign of a cold or flu, take 1/4 tsp additional vitamin C every hour or even every half hour. You’ll probably nip that bug in the bud!

You might end up taking 20 to 50 grams. However, it is not uncommon for someone to need 100 grams.

Even if you cannot prevent the cold or flu, continue taking the same frequent doses of vitamin C. It will help your immune system get rid of it faster.

Another way to keep vitamin C in your bloodstream is to add packets of a common supplement, Emergen-C, to your water bottle.

Emergen-C is ascorbic acid, not sodium ascorbate, so it is better to “sip on” rather than try to take in large amounts.

However, it’s perfect to help keep vitamin C in your system 24/7.

You’ll be amazed at how much more quickly you get better!

Side Effects of Taking High Doses of Sodium Ascorbate Vitamin C Powder

I’ve been taking high doses of vitamin C for many years and have never had any negative side effects aside from occasional loose stools when recalculating bowel tolerance.

My husband, kids, and pets have also been taking high doses for several years with no negative side effects.

Our positive side effects include:

  • Increased energy
  • Lowered allergies
  • Less illness
  • Quicker recovery
  • Less inflammation

Possible negative side effects reported include:

  • Gastrointestinal upset
  • Decreases the effect of cancer pharmaceutical Bortezoibl

Possible food and drug interactions include:

  • Can increase iron absorption
  • May cause oxalate buildup, a concern for those prone to oxalate kidney stones.’s FAQ’s on using sodium ascorbate will answer many of the other questions you might have.
