Dateline: Utopia Texas
by Briana McDonald
(UtopiaSilver.com) The very first article I wrote for Utopia Silver was on the topic of Vitamin C and the important roles it plays in our bodies. Little did I know that several months into the future I would be administering high dose volumes of Vitamin C, up to 30,000 milligrams, every day to my father suffering with chronic pain. He was diagnosed with spinal stenosis, which is when the spinal channel gradually narrows over time. This channel is the hollow through which your nerve superhighway, the spinal cord, runs. Had someone told us before he was prescribed a morphine and opium regimen that high doses of Vitamin C eliminates chronic pain and drowns inflammation, he would have saved himself months of sleepless nights and days of being medicineged up to the point of barely being able to function.
He lived pill to pill. Wake up take a pill, fall asleep until it wears off then take another. To see someone you love suffering like this is heart wrenching. I would wake up at 3 in the morning to muffled cries from across the hall and the sincerest of prayers uttered from desperate lips, not knowing what more I could do to help other than to pray with him. He could not put on his own socks or boots in the morning, he could not sit, and he could barely walk. Work was out of the question but on days that it was inevitable, there was morphine, and lots of it. Pain makes you wear a mask. You are no longer yourself anymore, all you are is pain. 99% of the conversations we had were about his pain. You can’t run from it, it sticks to you like gorilla glue.
Then, there was a silver lining. One morning at work I was speaking with Ben, the president of this great company, about my father’s rough nights and worsening condition and he helped me find a vitamin therapy protocol for him to follow. Here is an excerpt from the article:
“One of the great proponents of massive dose vitamin C therapy was Dr. Robert F. Cathcart III, an orthopedic surgeon. One might want to think on that for a long moment. Cathcart, the inventor of a widely used hip replacement prosthetic, advocated doses of Vitamin C, often in excess of 100,000 mg per day, to reduce severe inflammation. “
Dr. Cathcart’s methods proved effective, and by day two of the protocol my father noticed more range of motion and nearly jumped with excitement at the possibility of putting his own socks on again. By day four, his pain dramatically decreased and this was the first day in almost 9 months of not needing to take a pain killer. This was also a day he was able to drive to San Antonio and back (3 hours round trip) and run errands in town. Something like this was unimaginable just a week prior.
It’s important to emphasize, low doses will not work. My father is taking up to 30,000mg daily and has still not met his bowel tolerance which means exactly what you think it means. The protocol is as follows:
-30,000 to 100,000 mg Vitamin C (my father is using liposomal Vitamin C)
-Joint Care (containing chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate for healthy cartilage)
-True CMO (It relieves inflammation and symptoms of Arthritis and joint pain)
-Methyl B12 (protects brain cell and nerve tissue)
Vitamins D and E, the mineral selenium, the omega-3 fatty acids (“fish oil”) and gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) are very important, too but we only focused on the 4 mentioned above.
My dad fills up a shot glass of the liposomal Vitamin C three times a day, the joint care twice daily, and the True CMO three times daily with food. The Methyl B12’s he munches on throughout the day like candy. It’s also important to note that his diet was adjusted as well. Other than from fruits, all other sugar was eliminated from his diet. Sugar increases inflammation. And he is drinking more water than ever before.
I can’t say that my dad is out running marathons but he is his old quirky self again, no morphine mask, and he can get around with very little to no pain. This is miraculous and if you know anyone who is suffering from chronic pain please pass this information along. I have no ego attached to this, there is no monthly fee or ebook to pay for and download and please check out the doctor yourself link located at the bottom of this article for more information on Dr. Cathcart’s work. Bottom line, it’s simple and effective; high doses of Vitamin C drowns inflammation and eliminates chronic pain.
