I was contemplating why, in some circumstances, that people who follow Dr. Lam's protocol's seem to get better when they "repair their adrenal glands" with vitamin C. It seems to me that in some cases, vitamin C could actually be stimulating the immune system and helping to rid the body of the pathogen (virus, bacteria, parasite) that was causing HPA-axis dysfunction. Another thought I had recently, is that many test negative for any number of autoimmune conditions, however their body is producing antibodies at a low level that fluctuates and the reason the antibodies aren't high enough for a positive is because they don't have enough B-cells to produce antibodies. This could expain the phenomena of "seronegativity" in some cases. Stimulating the immune system in these scenario's would explain why symptoms increase when more B-cells are created to produce auto antibodies. Thoughts?
