No surprise that doing periodic colonics will help keep you from getting sick from a cold or suffering from the Flu, Pneumonia or Coronavirus. Since you do colonics with us in Portland, Oregon at Colon Care Colonics, or thinking about it, you already know colonics clears out the colon of excess waste and mucus, along with harmful pathogens, parasites, and damaging toxins. You know colonics improve the tone, peristalsis and shape of a colon. You know that keeping a colon healthy and happy is a great way to not get sick. Because it’s common sense to know that a colon filled with putrefying fermenting crap is a great way to get diseased. So this blog is not about the incredible benefits of colonics, also known as colon hydrotherapy and colon cleanse. This blog is about the other three things you can do to never get sick. Truly, never catch a cold or even worry about the dreaded coronavirus. And if you do get sick, by doing these things, you will suffer far less and get well much quicker!
So what is the first thing you can do to PREVENT ever getting sick? First, I got to give a disclaimer. Since I’m not a doctor, I don’t diagnose treat or prescribe. I am an educator and give people information. If you use this information for your own wellness without talking with your doctor, that is your decision and you assume all risk for doing so. In no way am I saying you should do this or take this. Just answering the question from an education point of view and suggesting you research and consider some things.
So, what is the #1 thing you could do to prevent getting sick? Consider taking Vitamin C. No surprise there? Well you might be thinking, “did that and it did not work”. Hmmmm. Did you take enough? I ask people all the time, “Do you take Vitamin C”? And they say oh yes, I take it every day. So I then ask, “How much Vitamin C do you take and how often during the day”. They say “once in the morning and about 1000 mg” is the average response. I smile. I understand why they think that is a lot of Vitamin C since the FDA states humans only need 60 mg a day. I can hardly restrain myself from laughing every time I read the FDA recommendations. The research shows that those who took Vitamin C in higher doses and 3 times a day with meals had extraordinary success in both not getting sick and in treating horrible pneumonia. (1).
So how much C should you take to never get sick? Well that depends on the person. As Andrew Saul, whose mentor was Dr Abram Hoffer, and of whom, whose mentor was Dr Linus Pauling, always says,
“Take Enough C to Be Symptom Free,...
Whatever That Might Be” !
That really means what it says it means. If you have a sniffle or any symptom of getting a cold, you might consider taking vitamin C till it goes a way. That might mean 2000 mg three times a day or even 2000 mg every 6 minutes if you already have the flu. This is when people say how much do YOU take? They ask this like some guide that they should follow in how much they should take. What I need is going to be completely different than you, or your spouse or your child depending on their size and health condition. And your health conditions varies. Do you have a tooth infection, ear infection, fungal toe infection going on? How about super stressed at work or going through loss? You will need far more Vitamin C than if you don’t have these things going on. So how will you know how much Vitamin C to take? Vitamin C is water soluble which means it’s not going to hurt you if you take too much or take it every day. Dr Linus Pauling took 18,000 mg every day for 40 years. He died a ripe old age of 93 years. And here is where I have to stop and state yes, I know Quackwatch says Dr Linus Pauling is a quack for his amazing work with Vitamin C, so if you are someone that trusts Quackwatch, Snopes or any "fact checking site", please, just leave the blog now. It’s not for you.
So what happens if you take too much Vitamin C in a day? Your body will let you know by giving you a gurgle in your tummy. You will get loose stools and that is a clue you have reached the max of how much you take AT ONE TIME. It does not mean stop taking Vitamin C. It means slow down to where you don’t get the gurgle in your tummy and the loose stools. It means take less each time you take Vitamin C. So if 3000 mg of Vitamin C 3 times a day with meals gives you a gurgle in your tummy and loose stools, then you might want to consider backing down to 2000 mg or 1000 mg 3 times a day. It’s not a question of whether you should take Vitamin C 3 times a day, but how much vitamin C 3 times a day or maybe even more times per day.
