    I did this for quite a few months...75g three times a week. Thankfully my insurance paid for most of it...but unfortunately it didn't even come close to touching my viral infections.

    You are so lucky over there in America :)

    I cant believe I am going to say this (because i am exceptionally cautious with vitamins - only taking 200iu of vitamin D a day :) )

    But from a beginner perspective and what i have initially read, it appears 75 g may not be enough?

    I may have got the numbers wrong though...

    Thanks.

    I've been taking liposomal vit c for some time - sometimes 3 a day - each one is equivalent to 10grams but I don't know whether its worth the cost.
    A dentist I saw in the UK offered high dose IV vit c together with the treatment but the cost was too high - and also 250miles away from home. I think from the point of view of mercury it probably was a good option but for viruses such as we have???worth a try if you don't have to pay for it yourself definitely, but its never offered here on the NHS.

    If I had a port, I might consider doing it again because I don't think it HURT anything...but it definitely made 0 difference in my viral titers. Then again, only cidofovir has made any difference in my viral titers, and then only HHV6. So who knows?

    I just have to be careful of oral Vit C...too much irritates my bladder. The liposomal seems better but I prefer the powdered buffered form the best. Too much of that causes the dire rear though...

    Anyone tried making their own liposomal Vit C?

    I am going to try lemon juice to try to flush out my mystery infection. Read all kinds of miraculous effects it has :rolleyes: but it is high in Vit C, has potassium and B vitamins. So, even if it doesn't act as a miracle anti-microbial, the worst that will happen is I get a nasty migraine along with some much needed nutrients. Fingers crossed.

    I made some liposomal vit C today, after a break of a couple of years. Its very simple to make. I have only lecithin capsules in so l broke 6 open. They blended OK but l will buy the granules. I took a tbsp of the mixture, about 10 GMs. I am a bit concerned about absorbing more iron as my ferritin levels are 150.

    85g via IV did wonders for me. First real breath of my life. Unfortunately, it only lasted for 5 days and I couldn't afford more than a 10 treatment run. Now that I'm on the OLE and it seems to be working I am thinking about trying another go at it.

    I did a Summer diet. Tons of raw fruit and salad. I have yet to write up. (I am not cured lol :) ) (edit: yet)

    I have not been able to tolerate supplements very well so eating so much fruit was my first real go of high Vitamin C.

    It is extremely helpful - but I took mine in its holistic format. I am still wary of isolating.

    Today, I realised I have pain in my eyes when I move them again. Its been a good while since I have had this symptom. I have been off the diet for a week or two.

    I am certain Vit C cures the pain in my eyes.
    Good to know.

    However, i have also been looking up ebola cures and see it suggests a whopping 500,000mg potential need of Vit C. (500g)... my mind just cant conceive of this. It cant be right? can it?

    Its way beyond my comfort zone! I very much doubt any UK practitioner will discuss this with me lol.
