    Wow, I'd love to try high-dose IV Vitamin C for EBV, has anyone here tried it? :

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24793092

    "The clinical study of ascorbic acid and EBV infection showed the reduction in EBV EA IgG and EBV VCA IgM antibody levels over time during IVC therapy that is consistent with observations from the literature that millimolar levels of ascorbate hinder viral infection and replication in vitro'"

    I did 50-75g of IV C two to three times a week for about 6 months.

    It made absolutely no difference to my viral titers unfortunately or to my symptoms.

    There is a doctor here in the US, Thomas Levy, who is a big advocate of high dosage IV vitamin C .Healer, humbug, or simply deluded? I can't say.

    Whitaker Wellness in Newport Beach is also huge on vitamin IV's. I don't know anyone with ME/CFS who got a significant benefit from them.

    The only thing it did for me was drain my bank account and worsen my diarrhoea.

    Sorry to you all who tried it without success. I wonder if the doses in the study were higher...... Well, I'll not go look for it immediately, lol, thanks for the replies.

    I did them as well.

    50 grams 2 times per week and it didn't do anything to my titers unfortunately. I have heard and met several people that say that it's helped them though. I believe they were doing more than just Vitamin C. I would assume a Meyer's Cocktail with Glutathione.
