Vitamin C deficiency puts you at risk for vaccine damage

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Vaccine News(NaturalHealth365) Few topics are as deeply embroiled in controversy with as diametrically opposed points of view as the extensive use of vaccinations in babies, children, and adults. The purpose of this brief article is not to discuss whether vaccinations are a good thing or not.

But, if you feel a vaccination is necessary (or unavoidable), you can effectively lower the risk factors for vaccine-related injuries. In fact, vitamin C is an ideal agent for this purpose.

Vaccinations present a toxic challenge to any individual being vaccinated.

All of the negative effects of any given vaccination are mediated by the infliction of increased oxidative stress on the most susceptible areas of the body. In babies, the brain and nervous system is especially susceptible to any new toxin, and when this new toxin-induced oxidative stress is substantial and not promptly neutralized, any of a number of neurological impairments, including autism, can result.

Even today, many vaccines still contain thimerosal, a mercury-containing preservative capable of inflicting substantial harm.

Vitamin C is the optimal nonspecific antidote for all toxins and all oxidative stress. There are no known toxins that vitamin C cannot neutralize, and very many toxins have been examined in this capacity.

The reason for this is that all toxins inflict their toxic effects by increasing oxidative stress to pathological levels in one or more areas of the body. This means that important biomolecules get oxidized and lose their function.

Vitamin C can both neutralize the toxin directly and also repair the oxidative damage if the toxin cannot be neutralized first.

Vitamin C augments the antibody response of the body to the vaccination.

At the same time the vitamin C is blocking or neutralizing the pro-oxidative side effects of the vaccination, it is also helping the vaccine optimize whatever antibody response might possibly be destined to result. If even the staunchest of vaccine advocates was fully aware of what vitamin C can do to neutralize toxicity while enhancing immune response, vitamin C would be a routine part of all vaccination protocols.

A practical approach to combining vitamin C with vaccinations:

First, and foremost, anyone getting vaccinated or getting a child or baby vaccinated should make the treating doc fully aware of what is being done. If your doc gets visibly upset at hearing what you want to do without fully explaining to you why you should not do it, find another doc.

For optimal antibody support and toxin neutralization, it would be good to dose the vitamin C for three to five days before the shot(s) and to continue the vitamin C for at least two to three days afterwards.

When dealing with infants and very young children, a 1,000 mg dose of liposome-encapsulated vitamin C mixed into something like yogurt can work very well. If this form of vitamin C is not available, sodium ascorbate powder will work quite well.

Infants under 10 pounds can take about 500 mg in fruit juice, and babies between 10 and 20 pounds can take from 500 to 1,000 mg. As a very rough guide, children can take 1,000 mg daily per year of life, up to about age five.

If loose bowels ensue, the dose can be cut back, and greater effort should be made to acquire a quality liposome-encapsulated preparation of vitamin C. A similar approach applies to older individuals before something like the flu shot.

    Can you please recommend a high quality and absorbable Vitamin C supplement for children? Also one for adults too. Thank you!

    • Linda

      It says in the article to use the Liposomal Vitamin C – that is what I use it is the most absorbable

    • Virginia Ann Speaks

      All I can find online contains 1000mg of phosphatidylcholine (or “essential phospholipids”). Is this amount safe for an infant (1 year old) to take over several days?

      • Linda

        Call the company live on labs and ask them – that is the lyposome c I use. They just certified their c non-gmo

  • Soulla

    Thank you so much for this info. It will put so many parents’ minds at rest. I had no idea how amazing Vitamin C is and I’m probably not alone. I feel so fortunate to have found this website, I’ve learned so much. Thank you again.

    What should an adult do when getting a vaccine like shingles?

    Years ago Dr Phyllis Cilento recommended taking Vit. C before vaccinations, and particularly for children before all their childhood vaccinations. I had a book she wrote and she was known as the Medical Mother in the daily newspaper – The Courier Mail. I looked forward to reading her column and found it full of helpful, sensible advice. Dr. Cilento was an amazing doctor and mother and loved by many. If you goggle her, there is info about her and there may be a chance that her books are still available.
